Topic: Interior design
On one of the few rainy days this summer, I visited Ida and her family, in their newly-built house just outside Borås. She had just finished decorating and wallpapering one of the children’s rooms with the Eden wallpaper, and the bedroom is finished in the Skog pattern from Sandberg Wallpaper.
Ida, who normally works as a creator and freelance designer, was at home on parental leave with Sigge on the day of my visit.
Sigge, just like his mother, is immensely social and extrovert. He was more than happy to be in every picture. Wherever I went, he made sure that he slipped into the photograph, a really charming little lens louse.
When did you build the house?
This week, we were invited home with Josefine, who runs Trendrummet [the Trend Room] and the Instagram account, Loppisverkstan. She shared her thoughts on the hottest decorating and interior trends with us. We also got to hear about her thinking when she decorated her dream house, and what her favourite wallpaper is. Stay tuned!
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.
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.
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.
Hi everyone. I am delighted to be Sandberg’s guest blogger today, and I thought I would show you how I have used Sandberg’s Malin wallpaper, from their truly wonderful Oas collection, in part of my own home.
On a beautiful autumn day, we jumped in the car and headed south to the province of Småland, to the lovely old town of Tingsryd, to visit Frida in her wonderful 18th century house. The house is a real showcase for Sandberg Wallpaper.
On a cloudy and rather chilly autumn day, we drove out to visit the Villa Strömsfors. This is a really wonderful turn-of-the-century villa, which has undergone a careful and sympathetic restoration. The Villa was completed in 1908, on a small rise in Strömsfors, just outside Svenljunga. On the day of our visit, the house was beautifully silhouetted against a high fog.
