CHALLENGE YOUR FLOOR!!

WHEN I CAME ACROSS THE EPOXY FLOOR IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT… I have no doubt in life, if the flat wasn’t my friend´s I would go Epoxy-crazy! The floor coating has everything, its an amazing product that can not only provide great benefits to private home and industrial and commercial companies it also adds the coolest look and edge to your home! The product is shiny and has a dynamic appearance, very appealing in all kinds of room! Though I must recommend, if you aren’t a pro-handy, to hire a person who knows the material – it ain´t that easy to apply!

If you google Epoxy you’ll get heaps of hits both in Europe and abroad … Into industrial, classic but still edgy?

INTO COLORS, WOW!

YOU CAN EVEN DO PATTERNS IF YOU LIKE, AWESOME RIGHT??? 🙂


FUNKY RUGS – for less money!

NOTHING LIKE RUGS CAN ADD LIFE and class to a room! Remember my last post about rugs By Henzel – really really awesome but really really pricy! This is a cheaper but still cool option that will add edge, coziness and warmth to your room! Get these rectangle 150 cm x 240 cm (5′ x 8′) rugs at eBay for 140 GBP!

 

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYBODY – THE WEEKEND HUNT FOR VINTAGE MIX´ N MODERN  TREASURES ARE JUST AROUND THE CORNER 😉


ALTERNATIVE WAY OF LIVING!

I AM SPEECHLEES!!! GOD, I WOULD LOVE TO LIVE IN A CONTAINER!! OR AS WE SAY IN DENMARK I WOULD GIVE MY RIGHT ARM FOR THAT ! 😛 

Not only is it a great alternative to a boring house, I think the coolest thing about this way of living is that you can form it just as you like and it seems like when you break out of the traditional way of thinking housing – it opens up for creativity! You simply have to think out of the box! And I’ll be damned if the same does not happen to the choice of colors – Im sure the atmosphere will make you dare and let go of any kind of do´s and don’t ´s!!

LETS MOVE!!!

This color really works for a container – might not fit an ordinary house do you think?

HAPPY THURSDAY – Forget about do´s and don’t´s JUST DO IT! 


INVITE YOUR CEILING – to the funky party!

I have a huge passion for funky ceilings! I am sick and tired of white ceilings – I have said it before and I say it again, the ceiling is as much a part of the room as the walls – why so afraid of doing something crazy!?

I know these stripy-options might be a bit over the edge for some people, but nevertheless I want to show you how including the ceiling in the interior design gives a complete look! AND I love to go aaaaaaall the way!

AND FOR THE CLASSIC – see the effect?

DONT BE SCARED TO GO CRAZY ON THE CEILING – YOU CAN ALWAYS RE-PAINT IT!

Take it out on your wall!

Today’s material – TILES!

The next couple of days, as promised, my focus will be on wall deco. Walls are a the frame of the interior playground but I believe the whole frame, whether walls, ceiling or floor should be included in the interior design to make a complete expression – you simply cant neglect the frame – there is no scene without a frame, its like a book with no words – so TAKE IT OUT ON YOUR WALL!

I love tiles – they add an edge to the room, a mix of materials, tiles, wallpaper, paint, wood etc. makes the room dynamic and alive! Personally my heart beats for the funkiest ones, but in the right mix – combined with plain surfaces, they become more modern and classic!

There are no limits in the use of tiles – we have passed the time where tiles only belong to the kitchen and the bathroom! Give your room a makeover – you don’t need to make a whole wall, just a couple of tiles will add an edge and bring it to life!

First, Ill show the famous artilles – I know its “old news”, but I still think they sticks!

I actually used artilles (from http://www.arttiles.dk) for a project at Saint Martins College of Art. The project was to design a bathroom for a couple living in the high end of London. Based on a description of their personal profiles, I decided to make a mixed-style bathroom with a funky but classic touch – my main colors were black, gold and petrol! Since the couple had met each other in London I wanted to include that fact in the interior design, to give it a personal touch without being a cliché! SO, stick to the wall – i drew a wall made by small black mosaic tiles and art tiles in petrol, black, white colors – the art tiles formed a skinny version of London Tower Bridge! Get inspired by something you love, something that makes you happy looking at and create your own personal wall art!

These ones are awesome and I haven’t seen them used anywhere in Denmark, thats a shame! I have a billion of ideas how to create the most funky bubble-room, but again if you mix materials and surfaces the bubble tiles can be quite classic as well – if you are into classic style go for clean surfaces, same color shades but different materials! Go bubblicious!

MORE FUNK! Can you imagine a whole wall of these – psychedelic maybe, but funk to perfection! These tiles are described

“Tiles of Playfulness Synergy of Light Colors, Impressionism and Tiles”! 

If you can’t bare starring at your white tiles like me – go get some paint and make your own artwork! This one is made by Diva artworks http://www.divaartworks.com/Tiles.html , but why not do it yourself!

LAST BUT NOT LEAST! As much as I love the funky, crazy stuff I am totally amazed by gold and copper, and I can easily imagine myself in a room covered up in steel tiles – ITS SO CLASSY!!!!!!!

 

GO CRAZY ON YOUR WALLS – the next couple of days you’ll get more on wall deco, stay tuned and happy decorating!
