I see more and more homes where one is using color on the ceilings and walls, says Marti Stockstad, host of Who Lives Here?
– Some resort to muted colored surfaces, harmonizing from room to room, giving calm and harmony, while others shimmer with more vivid colors and more surprising combinations, she continues.
Maxbo’s Marianne Fischer-Poulsen can confirm that, too. NRK reported that the metering market in Norway rose by approx. 24% in value in 2020 compared to the previous year.
Measurement is a simple and relatively inexpensive renovation relative to other investments such as a new kitchen and new bathroom, says Paulsen.
“Same shit, same person.”
Backed by one of the country’s most famous color designers, Dagny Thurmann-Moe, who also points out another reason people want to color more.
– This is a counter-reaction to the way things were in the past. We’ve had twenty years of gray scale, so we’ll go against it now, she says.
Thurmann-Moe further explains that we are now moving away from a period when everyone should have the same chair and where all homes look the same.
– It was difficult to separate the house and the character from each other. His “same shit person”.
But now it turned around.
– Now you want uniqueness where home represents you. Before, shades of white and gray were what mattered, but now most people want the shade that suits you.
This will be especially evident in the upcoming season of Who Lives Here? Here, budding people will show their home to each other, and then guess who lives next.
And this fall, we’ll get to know some who are taking the step of sticking to color a step further than most.
Among them is the lively and colorful participant that NRK spoke to, but we chose to hide her identity, so as not to reveal any of the colorful houses she owns.
“Wow, that’s another thing.”
– Those who have been here on a visit usually react to “Wow, that’s another thing. You dare to do something I did not dare to do »
In her house, she sees almost all the colors in the rainbow, because here she meets bright green, turquoise, yellow and not least she uses her favorite color to say pink for all it’s worth.
– I’ve always liked the color pink. It makes me very happy which is why I use it.
She admitted that for a while she thought I was “grown up now” and therefore used colors that didn’t suit her.
– But when it comes to the play, I realize that pinks and pastels are important to me. It’s not for everyone, but it suits me well. The person of color says it is important to be a little playful.
As NRK wrote before about Hilda who lives in a yellow house.
Avoid white walls in the home office
According to Thurmann-Moe, colors greatly affect our mood and psyche.
Warm colors can be warm and socially energizing, but they are also invigorating. Whereas strong primary colors can be a diamond in the long run.
These gray and white homes are often tired over time. White walls are the worst thing you can have in your home office. Research shows, among other things, that it exists White rooms make the most mistakes, Sir is.
The color designer also adds that getting rid of it is very difficult for ogos because it reflects a lot of light. While the gray rooms make us depressed.
What should be an oasis becomes a prison.
– So pastel blue and pastel green are two of the things they work best in. In addition, you focus better when there are green plants where you are sitting, and you have a natural material such as wool or wood to touch.
