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.

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.
”Vinterskog, Winter Forest in Swedish, leaves the town far behind, and finds tranquillity in the Nordic light and the simplicity so typical of the Scandinavian winter landscape. The result is a minimalist wallpaper pattern which generates a pure and calm atmosphere which soothes away the worries of life and recharges tired batteries. A pattern which pays homage to the Scandinavian countryside at its most silent, focusing on its unique shapes and muted colours.
On this trip, we headed the car towards Skövde to visit Anna in her 1960s villa.
