For the love of graphics and architecture

With wallpaper you can provide a lot of atmospheres, it can add a pop of color or a dynamic effect in just a moment. I always loved to see the use of wallpapers in interior and design magazines. But I never had it at my home. I must admit I never looked forward to applying the wallpaper to the wall. I thought it was difficult to do it neatly and beautifully. But.. I was wrong! 

The Lines wallpaper by Ferm Living was very easy to work with. Of course, it may not be the most difficult print, but the Lines dessin perfectly fits my interior. It’s subtle and very graphic, it blends right into my love for straight lines and architecture. I choose the Cashmere color, a warm beige tint. At home I have a color palette of white, warm grey, black with brown (wooden) tones. So Cashmere works very well and contributes to the warmth in the space. The golden lines bring a subtle shine and change with different types of light. I really like it when natural light influences wall colors during the day. 

The Lines Wallpaper comes in several beautiful colors. Besides Cashmere, you can also choose between Dark Blue, Offwhite, Graphite, Grey or Mint. The paper is firm and thick and very easy in use. After cleaning and dusting the wall I added the ready-to-use wallpaper glue. The non-woven wallpaper is easy to apply (and to remove if you prefer a change after a while). A fun thing to do actually with an instant and lovely effect. 

Coloredwalls is a new webshop by MisterDesign. It provides wallpapers by luxury brands like Ferm Living, Moooi, Arte and Cole & Son. With lots of choices in designs: (botanical) flowers, animals, concrete or geometric shapes. It comes in many colors, from bright to more subdued. Ferm Living is well-known for special home accessories. I have some Ferm Living designs at home so my choice of wallpaper was clear from the beginning!

Sleepover: NORR11 Fin Side Table

As I told you in a previous blog post, I work at the finest Scandinavian Design store in Utrecht. At KECK&LISA Wonen we are happy to welcome NORR11 as a new brand. Last year in Copenhagen I visited their showroom during 3 Days of Design and I was impressed by their collection. NORR11 has its own view on combining traditional and modern Nordic design. Also the use of materials and finish is very detailed and of good quality. 

It is hard to choose a favorite design, yet the Fin Side Table was love at first sight. This small side table looks simple at first, yet the clever design makes Fin very versatile and beautiful. Especially the three legs provide the table its special character. The design of the legs gives the side table a different appearance from various angles. Slim and graceful, or more strong and sturdy. The table is made of solid oak wood and comes in Natural, Dark Stained, Black and Smoked. I was lucky to have the Dark Stained version at home for a few days. A very welcome sleepover!

Enter the room

Since a few years I moved to a small city apartment in my hometown Utrecht, a charming old town in the middle of The Netherlands. Within cycling distance of the old city center and canals. I don’t mind living small, it’s cozy and makes you more creative about the interior. I use different accessories and I have a few good basics like a String cabinet, a big wooden Thonet table and the Togo lounge chair. All my furniture is easy to move. Not only because I like to make changes. It’s also because I use my home for working and photography projects. 

A well-known and easy way to make a room look bigger is the use of a mirror. It provides more depth and it reflects the light. With this mirror, you’d love to enter any room. The Enter mirror is a minimal and classic design, the result of a collaboration between New York-based Søren Rose Studio and Danish - Copenhagen based - Ferm Living. Founded bij Trine Andersen in 2005. Her brand started with wallpaper (more on this on the blog soon) and is now one of the best known Danish interior design brands.

Most of my walls are colored in a grey, beige or anthracite tone. I started with one wall in a dark color in my bedroom. Gradually all walls turned dark. The room is very bright so I took the risk. It turned out very well. I love the warm and cozy feeling, it even makes me sleep better. 

The Enter mirror is a combination of powder-coated steel, mirror glass and leather. In particular the leather detail provides the mirror character, it distinguishes from regular mirrors. I like the brown leather strap on the dark wall in combination with the wooden shelves of the String Pocket. The mirror comes in small and large. With brown and black leather. I choose the small version to add a striking detail on the wall.
