New listing in Eugenies gate 16 is a renovation project with allot of potential.
The apartment is in Bølteløkka just minutes away from our offices in Majorstua and close to the surrounding areas of Bislett and St.Hanshaugen.
Within the first hour of the ad going live on finn.no – the listing has already received such an awesome response. Interested buyers calling to make sure the property doesn’t sell before the first open house viewings.
I really enjoyed this shoot and the styling of this apartment. Presentation is key, even if the apartment is one this is a total renovation – there is always value is presenting it out to the market. Our model we used on this shoot, has been used on a similiar project with our founder at BOA Tommy Friestad and that sold for several hundred thousand over the valuation and more importantly way above the average sqm price in the area.
Our model was such a pleasure to have on board as she totally captured a warm and cosy feeling in the apartment and made our photographs so much more engaging.
The style of this apartment was retro inspired and was done by our awesome styling team. Click here to the link to the ad so see more photographs.
What are your thoughts about the banana leaf wallpaper?
It’s been used in the famous Beverly Hills Hotel. I was super lucky to stay at this hotel when I was younger, and I remember all the extravagant materials and details of the hotel so well. I would love to be able to go back there again, and see the place all over again.
Even though it’s probably a big commitment to choose a wallpaper with that much pattern, I think that with the right accessories the right look can be achieved. The coloring of the leaves pair really nicely with gold accessories and wooden detaisl. I think it brings so much of energy to a room, and can create a really fun mood in a smaller spaced room.
We have a guest bathroom which I am looking at getting done, it is a small space but I am keen on finding this wallpaper and creating a really lovely space.
We will be having the first of the open house showings this evening at Smedgata 35. Even before the viewing we have received very positive feedback and more importantly very interested buyers ready to place their bids.
This will be 2016’s first showing for me. I love my job as a broker, and I especially love showings because I genuinely enjoy meeting up with people and helping them to find their dream home or new investment.
This year started off with bang for the property market in Oslo.
Prices just in the city have increased by 10% conservatively. There are many properties listed in already in the first month, making it easy for buyers to be selective with their choices.
After spending the holiday season in South Africa and celebrating the New Year there, I landed in Oslo and just hours later met and secured a property which I am looking forward to showing end of January.
It is good to get back to routines and starting new projects!

It’s getting cold outside.
This week, I thought I would share something which my husband and his company have used on their developments over the years. They were one of the first to use fire pits in their new homes, which made a great addition to the garden area. Now, they even use it on the balcony – overlooking stunning views!
Fire pits allow you to get an extended use of your outdoor space during the chilly winter months.
Here is some inspiration from the guys at Initio Eiendom.
I adore Restoration Hardware. After visiting stores in the US, and getting a feel for their quality of furniture and decor – I’m inspired and have many items on my wish list.
One item that is possibly overlooked is rugs. They add such warmth to a room, and is a fun way to play around with texture and give a room a new dimension.
At the RH store, I got to see and more importantly feel, their rug collection. They are pricey but you quickly understand why when you find out more behind the brands and people behind these rugs. Have a look at this, from Ben Soleimani and get inspired!
Check out the rest of the collection on the Restoration Hardware site.
Here is my mondays lookbook, enjoy!
What’s your take on Moroccan tile design?
The traditional colors are truly beautiful. It’s bold, and once you choose the pattern and color – you have to live it for a while as it would get pricey to change out tiles every season. What I do like though, is finding the tile or pattern in calming colors that I know will blend and work well with other things in our house.
Yes, I know – probably boring. But, I like to use color in other accessories around the house and not in tiles or flooring.
These are some of the photographs I found for this weeks lookbook. I’d like to get a sample ordered for our new bathroom. We are divided on this trend in our house, so it will be interesting to see who wins! 🙂
Wallpapers are tricky. It took me some time to get to this, only because I have to really love a wallpaper to have it in my home. If I feel that way, I bet there are others like me that feel the same.
It is a very personal choice. But, it is great to get inspiration and figure out what style you are going for in a room and how a wallpaper can help achieve it.
I adore papers from Elitis, Zoffany & Harlequin. I like textured papers, with some silk or sheen to it. And, i think for it to work in a room – good lighting is a must and the right accessories should be used to pull off the look.
In our new home, I will be doing one wall in our dining room. I’m keen on a dark wall with metallic finishes and great lighting in the room. I have ordered samples – so looking forward to getting started!
Hotels around the world are some of the best places to be inspired by beautiful design trends. The Mandarin is no exception.
Looking over photographs from a few of their hotels around the world, makes we want to be able to travel more and experience more of the beautiful rooms. They work with some of the industry’s best people to put together luxury rooms for the guests.
My ideal home would be purely hotel inspired. Especially the bathrooms, all the details and layout. Here are some photographs of some of the Mandarin hotel bathrooms from different places. Enjoy!
