We are steadily getting ready for a new season and it’s time to look at what this means. Autumn is the time for creating beautiful, cosy indoor spaces, and we love it!
The inspirational journeys through Stockholm, Copenhagen and Milano in the spring gave us new and enticing ideas for decorating walls. There is a growing interest in dividing the wall space into different fields, and the perfect way to do this is to use wallpaper. Check, out the following three tricks (as well as the bonus tip!) for making the most of the hottest autumn trend in your own home!
My pattern portfolio is growing all the time, and some of them mean more than others to me. The very first wall paper I produced as a designer at Sandberg will always hold a special place in my heart. It was a new start, a new adventure and an opportunity to take on a new challenge. Of all the patterns I have created, Siri has become my personal favourite.
Summer has arrived and we are enjoying the lazy days. Maybe you are spending time at your country cottage, padding around barefoot on wooden floors wamed by the sun, with a cup of coffee in your hand? Or cosying down indoors with a book, while a rain shower is passing, leaving the whole countryside freshly showered and smelling wonderful? No matter what you’re doing, here are our five top tips for wallpapers for country life, which will let you enjoy the beauty and pleasure of cottage life and summer all year round!
It is the time of year when the peonies are coming into flower, and I’m visiting my parents’ home where the buds are just starting to open and the flowers are emerging in all their amazing glory. My parents have a mature garden, which thrives in the Swedish summer and is full of fruit trees, current bushes, vegetable patches and Dad’s latest project: a stand of hops from which will be used to brew beer in the future (right now, it’s just the odd plant, so it may take some time before we get there – but it’s the thought that counts). Among all these plants, the ones that draw my eye most are the peonies which provide an annual focal point in the middle of the garden. There is something mesmerizing about their impressive colour and size. As is they are standing there in the garden, demanding attention.
In 2006, we listened to the Gnarles Barkely song ”Crazy” while working in the studio, and were fascinated by the Rorschach test-inspired video. In the same year, the Raphael wallpaper pattern , designed by Daniel Långelid, was unveiled. And there is no doubt that the paint effects featured in the video inspired the pattern, as did antique woven tapestries. We chose to print the pattern using a collagraphy machine, with the wet-on-wet printing technique giving the wallpaper its unique character and a vibrant, tactile finish.
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!
As spring approaches, I love to bring beautiful flowers into my home. Not only a bouquet of spring flowers on a table, but walls decorated in greenery and colourful displays of flowers.
The cherry trees are in bloom and just like every other year, I feel happy and full of energy. Yesterday, it snowed in many parts of Sweden, but the cherry trees remind us that summer is not far away! I love spring and the promise of light, emerging plants and the return of life.
Our Flora Sandbergica launching tour did a stop in Oslo. In Norway we are known since many years for our Gustavian styled wallpapers. We love Norway, and now we want to dig deeper into the Norwegian soul, opening up hearts using our new Flora Sandbergica wallpapers.
Flora Sandbergica launch in Finland
It was a sunny, early spring day in Helsinki. Clear blue sky and a mild wind predicted light and warmth are on its way back. Chairs moved outside the cafés and small daffodils decorated the tables.
