Oscar 2014 – do you dare RED?

HAPPY OSCAR NIGHT 2014, the 86th Academy Award!

I am so excited cause this year I am going to the cinema to watch the entire show all night! I never managed to stay awake all night so this year I won’t let it happen, Ive packed a back of snacks, a sleeping back and a dear friend – its gonna be awesome!

Talking about the red carpet, do you dare red? There are so many opinions about the color red. Red is one of the four primary colors and according to experts its a very powerful color – not only because of its visibility but it also carries the property of appearing to be nearer than it is and therefore it grabs our attention first. The effect of red color is very physical – and if you believe in color theory – it is said that it stimulates us and raises the pulse rate. It can activate the “fight” instinct – I once read an article about colors where a research on the effect of colors were carried out on school children. One part of the school hall was painted red the other one blue and the conclusion was that the activity level was significant higher for the children in red surroundings than it was for the children in blue! But the color has two sides on one hand  it is stimulating, lively and very friendly on the other it can be perceived as demanding and aggressive. Hmm, tricky tricky!Red is for those who dare take the change, do you? 🙂

Ive made an Oscar sample to show you how red color or red pieces of furniture can make your room look awesome and add a lively atmosphere! Do you agree??

Pieces of furnitures and interior accessories can really lighten up the room and add a liveliness not seen in any other colors – the contrast is so significant that it gives a daring touch! But why not go for  the wall, the floor or the ceiling!!!?? 😉

#3 GET INSPIRED BY THE WORLD WIDE ACE!!

READY FOR TAKE OFF!!!! THIRD DESTINATION IS PORTLAND!

Today Ill give you a tour at the third ACE-Hotel – this time we are in Portland, and I have to admit this must (until now) be my favorite! The hotel is placed in Portland downtown and i must say – I have never been there, but I got to go!

Though the ceilings aren’t decorated ( 😉 ) these rooms are simply thought through to perfection, loads of artwork, loads of atmosphere – still casual but thats the expression of ACE and I think it really works!!? Don’t you?

Notice how they have exploited the space in the smaller rooms – I find it very inspiring if you have a studio!

There are so many cool pics to show, so Ill let them speak for themselves this time – how do you like it??

Look up at your ceiling…zzzzzzzz???

What is it about ceilings, why do they have to be SO white??  Since I was a kid I always wondered why everybody had white ceilings and colored walls, it seemed to me that the room was cut in two pieces and did not belong together! Or almost even worse if both walls and ceilings were painted white I felt like I got blind (in Denmark we call it snow-blind, does it make sense to you? 🙂 ). I did not understand why everybody loved to lay on the grass or at the beach looking up in the beautiful blue sky (maybe because it very seldom shows up in Denmark) but when we went inside and to lay in the bed we were all looking up at a white ceiling, drained from any kind of stimulation – just nothing! It did not make sense to me, and it still doesn’t – why are so many people so afraid of painting the ceiling?

Ive heard many arguments but the most usual is that if you paint the ceiling it gives the impression of falling down to your head – I see the point, but I DO NOT agree! As long as you consider the color and the rest of the interior, I am convinced that painting the ceiling will actually give the impression that it actually belongs the room!

The trend in Scandinavia is right now VERY WHITE and minimalistic but black ceilings are getting in, which I think is really cool!

I know its a bit of a jump if you are a real sucker for “Scandinavia interior style” and it will take a bit of daring to paint a ceiling black especially because most of us don’t live in spaces with lofty ceilings (which I think is the biggest concern) but I am sure, once you go black…!!!

Color experts actually say that a dark ceiling helps make a space feel more intimate! I know its a bit extreme to jump straight to black, but that was what I felt for today 😉 But I will come up with less radical changes in future posts on ceilings, paint and decoration, but try to consider it next time you look up … and let me know please!! 🙂

#2 Weekend Interior Hunt!

INTERIOR TREASURES BEYOND BORDERS!!! 

This is my second weekend hunt post, for those who weren’t with me last weekend Ill do weekend posts on web hunt – Ill go for unique vintage treasures and modern  pieces that will make a perfect match! My mission is to find stuff you can’t get in the local mall or main-design-store! – Let me know if you know of a certain place, that I have to check out, I´d LOVE IT 🙂

Keep repeating myself, BUT to me the most interesting and exuberant interior design comes true when you mix styles and materials! Spice your new fab home up with a piece of vintage, up cycling treasures, original classic design – I promise you once you go vintage you’ll never go back 😉 !

´Be alert” means only one piece available or SALE – grab it right away!

Always start BIG – then go for accessories! So, lets check out this weekends cool furnitures!

I´ve been looking at this table made by an old door for a long time. I think its has a great look of both modern and vintage, that I simply love! You can get your own personal one made, in what ever color that might fit your style and personality! You can order it at Genbyg for 5500DKK (incl. door/filling/glass), but if you are a bit handy I think this is a wonderful DIY project for the Spring to come! Don’t you think? 

I KNOW, industrial industrial … I can’t keep myself from it, as long as its NOT ONLY industrial I really like the edgy and rough look, a good idea is to mix it with a soft look like textiles or a bit more “heartwarming” prints, candles or vintage lightbulbs 😉 This old French bookshelf is so cool but a bit pricy DKK 9500 (and might be heavy) – and if you live in the States I think you´ll be able to find a similar one though not original old ones at Restoration Hardware   – same goes for the nice old ´doctor´ cupboard from the 40´s, its 5500DKK from No40  – check out their homepage, cause they do only have ´ ´ALERT´pieces!

And know for the accessories, heartwarming bits´n pieces in contrast to the rough furnitures!

Since I discovered Etsy I´ve had to myself in handcuffs – simply TOO much cool stuff at the same spot!

Check out the Eames inspired calendar print, It just makes me smile – lovely colors, heartwarming expression and even more heartwarming price 😉 DKK 150! AND EAMES vintage memory cards – aren’t they just cozy and decorative!?? There are several on sale for about DKK 60!

And all the way back to Denmark to Smukt Brugt vintage shop! Again industrial but this old spot from a train is really cool and it can be yours for DKK 700! And if you look closely at the poster photo and the table you´ll notice similar candlesticks – German nagel/ BMF! They are so cool and you can make and re-make as many times as you like and give it a new look! If you aren’t in Denmark check em out on Etsy, there have more!

IF YOU ARE INTO VINTAGE, MIX ´ N MODERN – ADD YOUR EMAIL AND FOLLOW MY BLOG –

FOR MORE WEEKEND HUNTS!!
