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 – 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.

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!

Enjoy! (Click on the photos for 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

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!

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.

Area scout

Last night, I went to a viewing of new house in Nordstrand Oslo. The location is great, with beautiful views. The brokers were very helpful, giving me all the practical information about the area and what the area offered for my kids who would be going to the schools in the area.

We have however chosen another part of Oslo. But, I thought the house itself was just gorgeous, with a very good floor plan and finishes. Top class!
