Yes I really suck at editing but OMG people, ‘s house is SOOOOO gorgeous! I am so sad she lives in Norway because I totally want to hang out at her place and listen to her make music and play with her cat and dog. Anyway, I will just have to make do with her . But at least I have a little (ok not that little) piece of her in my home. Check it out at the end of this post!

Maren and Maria, another Norwegian Instagram lovely  host the hashtag #darksideshow and back in mid-December they chose me as their weekly winner and OMG Maren sent my a massive canvas printed with one of her paintings all the way from Norway! it arrived a couple of weeks ago and husband and I framed it and hung it over the weekend. It is just what my bedroom was missing. The empty wall over my bed was starting to drive me crazy so this was the perfect spot. I love it Maren!! Thank you!!! 

I have met a bunch of very talented, creative and just all around awesome people on  lately, who have some seriously cool style and have done some wonderful decorating in their homes. I recently decided that it was about damn time I share some of these inspiring homes with you here on the blog. And the first person I wanted to introduce you to is Maren Ingeborg Gråblomst. Her dark, inky hued home is jaw-droppingly fabulous, and she is such a skilled photographer that I envy each and every photo she uploads to her Instagram account . Trust me when I say you must go follow her immediately. And read her blog  too while you’re at it. So back to Maren’s house. Don’t be fooled by the adorable pale pink façade. There is something totally unexpected behind that door!

 

I’m Norwegian and I live in a hundred-year-old pink house with my husband. Inside it’s filled with bold inky dark hues, vintage and low budget solutions. We spend almost all our time here in our living-working mash up – making documentaries ( short films) and music, and slowly building up a recording studio. I’ve also started to paint on canvas, which I sell plotted on high-quality canvas. I want to do it more and will expand my “art store” on the blog. One of the reasons for my blog and Instagram is the flow and mindfullness the painting, decorating and photography gives me.
But what’s most important to me is probably our music, Gråblomst. We release our second album this spring, and I’m really proud of this production if I can say so?! Life sounds so good, but most days dealing with my mental health problem is my hardest job. My goal is to make these days fewer and fewer, and to use more energy on all the things I enjoy. 

 

I had such a hard time editing down the pile of photos that she sent so stay tuned for post #2 shortly, including something Maren sent me…

A maisonette in Maida Vale

Posted on Tue, 28 Feb 2017 by KiM

The star of the show might be the high ceilings. It might be the lovely large windows overlooking the communal garden or the dark oak parquet flooring. It might be the charcoal coloured staircase or the new kitchen. Any one of these could be the stand out feature of this renovated maisonette in London’s Maida Vale by but for me it’s the bespoke, blown bubble chandelier in amber, lemon yellow and cyan hued glass.

A modern farmhouse

Luxurious yet casual. Traditional mixed with modern. Light and dark. This modern farmhouse is a perfect example of these opposing combinations that are typical in the repertoire of California interior designer . (Another beautiful example here).

Here is Eliot. He’s a Devon Rex and acts like a dog. Greets me at the door, follows me around the house and plays fetch. It’s the unconditional love that gets me. Such a character. His Instagram is @eliot_rex
