    Between 3 walls…

    Wallpaper  is very high fashion right now. However, I know from different clients when I’m proposing it they get pretty nervous.  It can be a bold step to take depending of the graphic and color you’re choosing and wallpaper still have this word hanging onto it “grandma”.  But there is one place in your home …

    Set to Play or Pig Out!

    I don’t think that anyone has the months of January and February very highly on its list over favourite months. They are like 2 months in waiting (we could almost skip them) for the wonderful time to come i.e. spring! But as we can’t get rid of them we might as well make something fun …

    We are all different!

    I have never been too much into “matchie matchie”, after all we are all individuals and why wouldn’t chairs be too! These settings of all different chairs bring great energy to the rooms. What do you think? Same chairs but all different colored upholstery gives it a fun impression. Or all different but the same …

    For the love of reading

    In the busy lives we are all living I think we owe ourselves a great place to read and relax. I’ve always made a nice reading corner for my kids at an early age to cultivate the love of reading! The first one I did, I took a big mattress folded it up in a …

    Rule Britannia……

    Apparently there is something written about the forthcoming Royal  wedding every 10th second, and I thought we couldn’t let this British euphoria go by us here at Nordic Rooms either!!

    Add drama to your window!

    As probably most of us don’t have this kind of view from our windows we can permit ourselves to  add a little drama around our windows. I must confess I have almost always tried  to refrain from curtains in the different places I have lived in. But since I work at my present design studio where we …

    Look what you are stepping on!

    I am a big fan of painted floors. Perhaps I’m influenced by my mom who in the 1970′ s painted my girl’s room wooden floors in a glossy light blue, I was the only one who had that among my friends! This summer I just painted the floor in our little annex at my summerhouse …

    Hollywood Regency

      photo by gkatz I have a love and hate relationship to Hollywood Regency. The glamour and glitz style invented by the 1930s star Interior Designers as Dorothy Draper, Billy Haines and Elsie de Wolfe. It was Hollywood’s golden age. But it hasn’t died out just been updated a little bit. The key to H.R.  …

    Look but don’t touch!

      Did you know that the iconic Danish Architecte Arne Jacobsen’s favourite plant was the cactus? Well, I am not surprised because there certainly are some intriguing lines and forms and the abstraction of the plant makes it a great accent in your Interior.  I have always been very attracted to these plants and as …

    The love affair between Haute Couture and Interior Design

    The border between fashion and interior design is getting looser and looser. I suppose when you are creative you just want to go on and create and it is even more challenging when you walk over to the other side……..

    Don’t forget to look up it might be worth it!

    We have a tendency to forget the ceiling in our homes, just paint it white that’s fine, I think is the general phrase we use when decorating our homes. When I lived in Geneva, Switzerland I would walk down the street and all of a sudden I looked up and just realized what I had missed, …

And the twist has certainly been given here in this very contemporary coucou clock by the Italian designer Raffaele Darra (he is actually a glass artist) “Arcoiris” which …
