How would you describe your style?

– Scandinavian romance is a very good word that describes my style.

How do you create your own style? 

– I make use of a cohesive, muted colour palette with patterned elements. I have lots of dark woods and fill my home with as many textiles as possible! Textiles contribute hugely to homeliness and a snug and cosy feel.

– One tip that is somewhat typical for me is to paint furniture the same colour as the walls, as this gives the room a pleasing look.

Combine other patterned items with a patterned wallpaper

What are your best tips for matching wallpaper and design with the rest of your furnishings? 

– One useful tip is to tie together the colour scheme. Another tip is to think colour coordination, but don’t be afraid to combine other patterned items with a patterned wallpaper! If you have a patterned wallpaper, it can be pleasing to the eye if the majority of the other furnishings are in harmony. As long as you keep to the same style as the rest of your interior, I don’t really see too much problem. To ensure harmony, you can paint large items of furniture in a plain colour and position them against a patterned wallpaper.

What would you say that wallpaper does for a room?  

– Wallpaper makes a room feel nice and cosy. I love the feeling I get from a wallpapered room. It makes me feel calm and harmonious!

Why did you choose this particular colour scheme?

– I love the combination of green and gold and it fits so well into our colour choices at home.

Wallpapering yourself!

What are your top 3 tips for successful wallpapering? You’ve done some wallpapering yourself, haven’t you? 

1. Yes, I have! My first tip is just that – dare to have a go at wallpapering yourself! Next, a sharp knife is crucial for neat edges.

2. Something entertaining to listen to is a good tip, especially if, like me, you do it all by yourself. 

3. Roughly marking off the lengths in one go before application also makes things easier when you need to be a little here, there and everywhere at the same time.
