On one of the few rainy days this summer, I visited Ida and her family, in their newly-built house just outside Borås. She had just finished decorating and wallpapering one of the children’s rooms with the Eden wallpaper, and the bedroom is finished in the Skog pattern from Sandberg Wallpaper.
Ida, who normally works as a creator and freelance designer, was at home on parental leave with Sigge on the day of my visit.
Sigge, just like his mother, is immensely social and extrovert. He was more than happy to be in every picture. Wherever I went, he made sure that he slipped into the photograph, a really charming little lens louse.
When did you build the house?
Lina and her daughter, Sigrid, are standing on the stairs, and they wave when we drive up to the yellow “manager’s house” which is built on a slope down towards Lake Vättern in Huskvarna. Lina has just got back from her job, and taken over from her husband, David, who has been at home with the kids all morning. We found Vilgot, who has just turned five years old, in the kitchen. He has his hands full keeping track of the newly-baked rhubarb tart.
Here are our ten tips for wallpapers for children’s rooms from our new Kubel Kids collection. Kubel Kids is a collection of children’s wallpapers that tell an actual story. The colours are carefully selected to create the “perfect pink” and the “most lovely shade of green”. The collection has been developed in collaboration with photographer and stylist Anna Kubel. The best thing about this collection is that the wallpapers work well anywhere in the home, not just the children’s room.
We are sure that, just like us, you love wallpaper and decorating inspiration. So we have brought together photographs from 6 inspiring homes with patterned wallpaper, which we really like. We hope they will inspire you too, and make you a little more aware of how and what you should consider when you are making your choice.
Even though the current trends are rather fluid, it is fascinating to see what other people are choosing to decorate their walls with at the moment. For whether we want to or not, we are influenced by current trends in one way or another, and it is clear to see that slightly darker and more daring patterns are increasingly finding their way into our homes.
By far the best thing about today’s trends, is that there are so many of them that all of us can find our own trend. Our top list blends more daring colours with more muted tones.
What we put on the walls makes a massive difference to the impression that a home makes, and there are several things you should consider before making your choice.
No matter what kind of house you live in, new or old, large or small, the walls play an exceptionally big role in how the home is perceived. How often have we been asked - how do I about choosing wallpaper? So in this post we have brought together our five best tips on how to go about choosing wallpaper.
We have, as you may now know, abandoned the white walls and made our move towards more colour and pattern. The absolute hottest colour right now is pink. More and more homes take in all shades of pink. Pastel, vintage, powder pink and even bold pink.
This week, we were invited home with Josefine, who runs Trendrummet [the Trend Room] and the Instagram account, Loppisverkstan. She shared her thoughts on the hottest decorating and interior trends with us. We also got to hear about her thinking when she decorated her dream house, and what her favourite wallpaper is. Stay tuned!
Easter is here, one of our favourite holidays. In Sweden we put great focus on decorating our homes with feathers and Easter decorations.

“This spring, we want verdant and patterned wallpaper on the walls. We have moved on from four white walls and we are much more adventurous in both pattern and colour. In our new collection, Arboretum, you can find everything from crisp to more dramatic colours which create a soft and fresh ambience in the home.
