We launch our Trend Report for Fall/Winter 2016, to guide you through the season based on four different personalities with the home as the starting point. Reflecting different lifestyles, the aim of the report is to help you to find your own, personal interior style and to consume smarter. The Family, the Naturbanist, the Connoiseur or the Nowstalgic – which one are you?
A couple of days ago, the new Familj wallpaper collection started arriving at our retailers. At the design studio, we are really looking forward to hearing what people think about it. We’ve had great fun creating the Familj collection and, for obvious reasons, it has been a genuinely enjoyable process.
Sandberg wallpaper is represented around the world. We have customers in 50 countries. We always work with devoted people in love with our Scandinavian style and sharing our values. “Home is the start for well being” is true where ever and whatever the circumstances are. My everyday mission to enable beautiful homes takes me as Export Manager on trips around the world. I often get the question how our products are used abroad, which designs are preferred; do people have the same taste in design and color like Swedes? Here, under “Sandberg in the world” I will answer that question.
The best thing about being on holiday during the summer is that you can follow your own body clock. If, like me, you are an evening person, you can enjoy long, balmy evenings and then sleep as long as your body needs. Personally, I appreciate a calm, harmonious bedroom where the emphasis is on the bed and sleeping.
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!
The hallway is the face of your home. The hallway is the first room you enter when you arrive home from nursery, school or work. The hallway is where you greet guests who may be visiting for the first time. The hallway is an important part of the home. A warm, welcoming hallway always gives a great first impression. Here are some suggestions for ideal wallpapers for your hallway.
This light hallway, inspired by the sea, features our Pelle pattern, with its beautifully drawn sailing boats. Pelle suits any sailor with a love for the sea.
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.
Hemnet is a real treasure trove for interior design and inspiration. In recent years the quality of the photographs has improved by leaps and bounds, and there is a phenomenal number of exceptionally gifted stylists and photographers who surpass themselves time after time. As you would expect, we are particularly pleased whenever the stylists use wallpaper, which is a wonderful tool for giving a room character and achieving maximum impact immediately.
I find inspiration in the clear blue sky and the slowly-rising temperature. But also in the garden which is coming to life, sparkling in strong colours we haven’t seen for a while. When the temperature rises, I start thinking about holidays, the sea, the beach, walking through the sand and a cold ice cream. This is the time of the year that starts me thinking about summer cottages and how to decorate them. Imagine decorating your own summer cottage by the sea, using crisp colours like red, blue and white. Classic stripes on the walls, with self-coloured linen fabrics wafting in the summer breeze, as well as other checks and stripes. Here are some pictures that inspire me to dream and long for my own summer cottage.
