Bold and beautiful wall murals by Anewall

Sunday, 30 August 2015

Hello there! I don't often post on weekends but after our discussion around Karen's home on Friday, I had to stop by and tell you about Anewall. Based in Vancouver, Canada, Anewall prints vintage art, iluustrations and photography and specialise in large prints including wall murals that are printed in house. I absolutely love their self adhesive banana leaf wallpaper, watercolour mural, and map of vancouver. All I need to do now is clear a large wall....

All photos: Anewall

I see they also offer a customised service - meaning you can turn your own photos, favourite quotes, or personal design into a wall decal. Oooo, interesting.

I was in a Danish home recently and they had a black and white wall mural of their three boys wading out to see - it was so personal and such a lovely way to bring a seascape inside, I've been thinking about it ever since.

Do you have a photo or design in mind?

The amazing guys at Anewall sponsored me to write this post - and for me it was a no brainer since I absolutely love what these guys are doing and really wanted to share their work with you! Thank you for supporting my sponsors who make this blog happen. 

Happy weekend!

Great Dane style in Copenhagen

Friday, 28 August 2015

High ceilings, large light-filled rooms and a spattering of mid-century cool. This is the fab home of Karen May Kornum, owner of design gallery and webshop Another Ballroom, and her partner and four children in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. Karen describes her style as 'classic with an edge'. The space also serves as a showroom for Another Ballroom - which thrives on a passion for aesthetics, harmony, people, cultures art, design and alternative ideas of interior design - and many of the rugs, ceramics, and art photography are from the store (cleary one to keep an eye on!). Let's take a tour....

It took me a few minutes to understand the backwall of the sitting room - at first I thought it was another room, and then a mural. And then a giant wall to wall mirror (I've had a long week!). And now after a great discussion in the comment section below - I'm settling on an art photography mural or 'Trompe l'eoil' - realistic imagery which creates the optical illusion that the objects exist in 3D. Thanks for all your help!

Another great idea - and quick fix this weekend - is to pick up a beautiful, bright, bold patterned printed textile and throw it over the sofa / arm chair. Try Etsy for bold fabrics.

Other amazing Copenhagen spaces to celebrate the weekend...the fabulous home of a Danish interior designer, a Danish home with a touch of homespun, and a home with warm tones and quirky touches. Oh Danes, how I love your style!

A note popped into my mail this morning about a blow-out sale with 30% off Normann Copenhagen accessories from Blackthumb Decor, oh yes.  Time to snap-up a couple of different colour Pocket Organisers (as seen in action here) and a Folk Candlestick.

And's THE WEEKEND! Yaaaay! We're heading to a 'kräftskiva' or Crayfish party tomorrow evening- which means singing, schnapps (and if I kmow my friends rights - a whole load of dancing)...can't wait! Are you up to anything fun?

Have a wonderful couple of days! And see you Monday.
