A little while back, a wonderful film team from JM visited my home. We chatted about my interior design philosophy, what life in our family home is like and what it is like to live in a newly-built house. Since then, I’ve received many questions about what wallpapers I have used on my walls – so now I’m about to tell you!
Last week saw two major international design events for 2016 - the Milan Furniture Fair and Design Week – and naturally, the Sandberg Wallpaper Design Department team was there to spot the latest trends and experience all the exhibitions for themselves. Here is a rundown of the three most obvious trends by Hanna Wendelbo-Hansson, Creative Director.
We live in a world of rapid densification. Today, half of the people in the world live in metropolitan regions, and in only 30 years’ time, two-thirds of the world population are expected to live in an urban environment. But the more divorced we become from nature and the countryside, the more we long for our origins and a closeness to the source of our food.
Interior design has become both more important and more complicated in our globalised world, where the home has become the heart of our wellbeing. Our aim with the Sandberg Wallpaper Trend Report SS16 is to guide you through the various expressions current in this season, to find what you like and make it simple for you to invest in things which are easy on the eye and stand up to physical wear for a long time. In this post, we will examine more closely the values and expressions which appeal to the Explorer – perhaps this is you?
Choosing with care is trendier than ever. We are now launching the Sandberg Wallpaper Trend Report SS16, which calls for sustainable choices and helps you find your personal decor style.
It’s a new year, and maybe you’ve promised yourself a more organised lifestyle. Why not start by considering what your hallway looks like and how it is arranged? The hallway is the first room you see when you arrive home on weekdays, and the last room you leave in the morning. The hallway also gives guests a first impression of your home, so make sure it is a reflection of you and your personality!
Over the Christmas break, there is time to look at your home and think about starting new projects. I’m the kind of person who starts energetically stripping the wallpaper in the hallway only an hour before the whole family is due to arrive. But there is a better way to organise a renovation project and achieve a great result. If you take the time to think through a project and plan improvements carefully, the task will often be accomplished more smoothly and quickly!
Last week, Pantone, the internationally-acknowledged authority on colours, announced the Pantone Color of the Year for 2016, and, for the first time in history, not one, but two shades were chosen – a pale pink, Rose Quartz, and a sky-blue tone, Serenity.
We have been searching for walls which can tell a story. Our starting point was Sandberg Wallpaper’s own archives, which consist of old wallpapers, sent in and collected by us over years of caring for old houses and rushes of nostalgia.
Slow living is a keyword in the expression of ESSENCE, one of four themes in Sandberg Wallpaper Trend Report FW2015. We strive for sustainability and an aware approach to consumption. We don't want to be owned by our things, we want to downsize and spend as much time as we can with our family and friends. All this is reflected in how we decorate our homes, that are so important for us. The Essence expression is all about getting back to basics.
