12 Mar New Home
A beautiful new beginning and new stories to unfold.
And just like that, the time has come for me to move to a new home, and creative studio.
In the everchanging flow of life, we move, we change and we reflect our growth in our surroundings. I loved my old apartment and I will miss it. So many happy and not-so-happy memories within those walls.
But my business flourished and I had to give it space to evolve and grow. I was, originally, looking for a studio- just for work. So that I could hire more employees and create a comfortable, functional space for them.
But I ended up finding something even better: A new home both for me and my business. It’s a three-level house in the old city. My studio is on the ground floor, bathed in sunlight and good vibes.
Else will have a blast here. There’s a park across the street where she can run free and socialize with other pups. Then she can relax in her new basket bed; being cute all the time is exhausting.
Always inspired by Scandinavian minimalism and after spending endless hours browsing conceptual stores (like bolia) and antique shops, I found some pieces that make me really happy and can’t wait to use.
One of the most exciting parts was designing my custom-made light pendants for my studio in collaboration with a wonderful designer, but more about that in another post. I really want to dive into this, I find it so exciting and hopefully you will too.
Another exciting part was keeping only the essentials and making sure that every single piece that goes into the new house is functional, meaningful and is being used every day. We sold a few of our old furniture and either replaced them with pieces that work well with the new space or decided we can do without them.
less but better
We painted all the walls white. A clean backdrop interlaced with luscious solid oak, walnut and ash, tactile furniture fabrics to create a beautiful contrast as a clear reference to the Nordic heritage and craftmanship.
My studio will be divided into two parts, as we need a flexible creative space for both computer work and photography. I’d like to keep it uncomplicated but with an intuitive way to organize my storage and have my functional needs turned to an aesthetic manifestation.
The goal is to have my functional needs turned to an aesthetic manifestation.
I want this home and studio to allow me to be exactly who I am and I would rather take my time to make it perfect and pay attention to detail.
Thank you for letting me take you on this journey with me.
I’ll keep you posted.
