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 Michałowski – 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:

Retro model shoot

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.

Mondays lookbook

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!

Mondays lookbook

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.

House for sale!

I am so pleased to put this house out on sale, the ad went live a couple of hours ago and I am looking forward to the first viewing this sunday. The house was actually built by the sellers dad. It is a perfect house for a family that works in Oslo, with easy commute to the city. Within walking distance to popular skiing areas and beautiful forrests!

Stay tuned 🙂

Mondays lookbook

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 finding a good landscape architect in your area.

Enoy!

Pay it forward

I started an act of kindness this morning at the local coffee shop by our offices.
The Starbucks pay it forward acts, have taken place several places in the US. It isn’t a very normal thing here in Norway, in fact when I asked the barista he just looked at me in surprise. But, was very happy to see the chain reaction!

The guy behind me got his morning coffee and paid it forward for several others. Spreading something good and cheering up the next person can be really simple. Hope you find a way to spread some kindness today! 🙂
