This was one of the starting points for the collection Skog (the Swedish word for Forest) when me and my design colleague Karolina Kroon started to work with this collection about a year ago. We wanted to make a collection of wallpapers that help you reconnect with nature and make your home your own sanctuary. We wanted to make wallpapers that fitted in to modern environments that so often opens up with big windows to the nature, or garden outside, welcoming it inside.We went out in to the wood to find inspiration. We looked for unique, authentic materials that age with dignity. Walking across fields of green moss we found shells of birds’ eggs, stones, rusty old objects, a worn piece of linen fabric, all so beautiful in its fragility. Once back in the studio we started to work with the watercolors on heavy paper.
