Video: Behind the scenes

I had such fun at the photoshoot for Haugerbakken 7 A. This house is a new listing and I am really looking forward to the open house showing this weekend.
The owner had styled the house herself, and I think she did a great job! She has always had an eye for interior and enjoyed getting her home ready for sale. It was a pleasure working with them.

There is a little video footage from the photoshoot with our super talented photographer Mateusz聽Micha艂owski – his work is just incredible. All of the photographs are edited by him. This is something that we at BOA are very proud of. Unlike our competition – our photographs are edited in-house, and not sent for editing outside of Norway to a person that has not even seen the house. This all makes for stunning photography which you will see in all our listings.
The video footage is just a short teaser. I made it this short to fit the Instagram video time. You can view the video here:

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! 馃檪

Enjoy!

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 聽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!

I think black accent walls are super trendy and can be used in different rooms to help frame the room. I am looking into getting one of the walls in the new place done in black, and using a large mirror I have been drooling over, and frames to bring it to life. If not plain black, I have found a beautiful wall paper with black and white stripes that work really well with gold or chrome mirrors and frames.

Here is todays lookbook, enjoy! Click on the photos to go the links.

Recently I have been going to different stores having a look at bar stools. We have some in our kitchen, white easy to clean bar stools. However, the quality on them wasn’t that good and the paint has started fading. So, I will try get them sold and get new one’s for the next house.

Here are some of the types I have been looking at. Bar stools can really frame a kitchen, and give a unique look to the room. It is fun shopping around for new one’s and trying to see which one’s will best for our new kitchen. Of course, keeping within a budget but making sure I get good quality chairs this time around!

Enjoy!

Growing up, I had a mom and dad who enjoyed their weekend nursery trips, getting beautiful plants and flowers to fill our garden. I sadly, am pretty hopeless with gardening. Our new home will luckily be of a more manageable size, and easy to maintain.

I do sway for the more modern looking garden designs. The clean simplicity of the wood with the manicured greenery along with the natural stones – is just so elegantly beautiful.

Here is this weeks inspiration! I do think you can adapt these designs to fit different size gardens and even a rooftop garden.I definitely reccomend聽finding a good landscape architect in your area.

Enoy!

Granite countertops is something i have wanted to incorporate into our home for a long time. Last summer, i finally got a beautiful white shiny marble countertop installed as the centrepiece for our kitchen. It is a huge splurge, but it is one of my favourite items in the kitchen.

We will be moving in a couple of months, it will be sad to part with our beautiful kitchen which we have used years on getting it exactly the way we want it. But, exciting to find inspiration for our next kitchen!

Here are some photographs I found for this weeks lookbook!
