We are now offering a sneak peek at the soon-to-be launched wallpaper collection, Arboretum, a botanical collection with 11 totally new organic patterns centred on greenery. Arboretum has a range of native Swedish trees, Oak, Hazel, Willow, Beech and Quince, each of which has its own wallpaper. This is a modern take on classic patterns which are firmly rooted in our Swedish soil.
Today we have been invited to see around Frida’s magnificent 1930s villa, which is filled with green wallpaper. The villa is in the little village of Tvärålund in Västerbotten County in northern Sweden.
Frida lives in the house along with her husband, Anders, their sons Axel, 9 and Viktor, 7, and with two moggies and a spoiled mongrel dog. They bought the house in 2009, when they were expecting Viktor, and it was ready for moving into in autumn 2010.
The house is in Ulricehamn, and was one of the first to be built in the area. It is a beautiful and well-planned house, with a large and leafy garden and with the murmur of the small brook in the background.

As we have written about before, we launched a charity project during our training days, in partnership with our Swedish retailers. The basis of the project was to colour one of our most popular wallpaper patterns in a new colourway. This resulted in over 10 different versions, each with its own rationale. Our design studio selected two of these colourways, one green and one blue, and the ultimate winner was then selected by vote on Facebook. Here you can see the winning pattern in blue in Caroline and Christian’s bedroom.
Is your home in need of a makeover? One of the most effective ways of changing the feel of a room is to paint or wallpaper. Many home owners are fronted with the same questions. Which is the quickest and easiest option, and how do I get the most value for my money? Is wallpaper better than paint? It's a common assumption that paint is the quicker and easier option, but is this really the case?
