Few patterns are as classic as stripes. Using them you can achieve a look which is both exciting and dynamic. By varying the width, colours and contrasts, you have endless options to create an inspiring and timeless home.
”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.
I spent last weekend on the beautiful island of Gotland.
Our Oasis is a place where time pauses in its headlong rush, a sanctuary where you have the time to centre yourself, both visually and spiritually. You will want to remain here in deepest communion and moments of closeness, letting the atmosphere seep under your skin and rekindle your spirit. Body and soul have time to unwind, softly and gently, deep and vibrant, gentle and heartfelt, wild and beautiful. Like life itself.
”Our oasis is a place where we have the space and peace to create and be creative. A place with a history and tiny flaws which speak of another time. Close to the natural world and open countryside. A lush garden and fertile soil. A place that is always open for fellowship. Our own little oasis”.
We are delighted to launch our stunning autumn collection, Oas. We have taken the opportunity to put some questions to our designer, Karolina Kroon. She and her colleague, Sara Bergqvist, form the creative team behind the magically beautiful patterns of this fantastic collection.
As we worked on the Villa Dalarö collection, we found that we were missing a medium-sized pattern, a classic trellis of a size which would fit many different types of rooms.
Finally, we will have the pleasure of unveiling our beautiful Villa Dalarö collection! We have really been looking forward to this! With its pastoral aesthetics, this is the ultimate spring and summer collection, and our stylist, Mari Strenghielm and photographer Anna Malmborg, has done an absolutely fantastic job of capturing this. The collection is named after Maris home, and the pictures show us the rooms, the residents and the walls, all of them saying, “Welcome to Villa Dalarö!”
As we worked on the RAND collection, the design team looked to Scandinavian aesthetics for inspiration. We added an urban beat to give a tempo to the collection, and looked closely at the Scandinavian capitals of Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen and Helsinki. The clean architecture, the wide horizons, the green oases and the cities’ closeness to water came together in four creative, striped designs which set the tone.
When we created the RAND collection, our aim was to produce a crisp, Scandinavian look which will work well as a base in many homes. The light, clean expression is a common theme, and we have used colours as effectively as possible. Stripes can be used anywhere, from narrow hallways to spacious living rooms. It’s a look where the elegant touch meets modern colourways in tune with the zeitgeist.
