My Latest Project: The Mikado Suite at the Grand Hotel

As part of Color of the Year, we (Fargerike) redecorate a suite at one of Norway's most interesting and renowned hotels, Grand Hotel Oslo, which was the place Edvard Munk tried to trade his first paintings in exchange for food (at the Grand Hotel Cafe), and Henrik Ibsen was a regular. In other words the location of major cultural and historical events for ages. 

It feels like an honor to be able to transform one suite each year into a color experience, Grand style, of course. Color of the Year 2013 for the Norwegian market, is ten shades of Purple

New from this year, is that we've incorporated some of the most exciting and interesting Norwegian designs of the year as well. And there were plenty of goodies to choose from!


The first room of the suite, is the living and dining room. It's decorated in light and airy lavender tones, and has a very classical look and feel to it, with a few elements to make it more bold and daring. Here, the modern classic, the OK sofa, was reupholstered in velvet instead of the traditional wool, which gives it a completely different look. The nuances of lavender are both warm and cold, which is usually a no no, but I think it works just perfectly. Chairs, table & mirrors are treasures from the Grand Hotel basement. 


Some elements are important to bring the look to 2013, and the caleidoscope photographs by Norwegian artist Helene Jellestad brings the perfect flair. The moldings on the wall has been painted in an almost white shade of lavender. The floring is a traditional oak from Tarkett's Epoque collection (from Fargerike). The chandelier got new custom shades.


The Mikado suite was originally Japanese, and it was important to incorporate some elements as a nod to it's heritage. These cherry blossom silk drapes from Sanderson/Fargerike were the perfect pick.




Following the living and dining room, is the office. A slightly bolder palette, with a dusty turquoise ceiling (St Tropez FR1211)



The bedroom is (not surprisingly), my fave. We went for a Norwegian Eclectic vibe, with a bold and strong color scheme, that challenges our aesthetic. Does it work, or not? Does hot coral drapes go with deep purple walls? Of course they do! ;) It's all about playing contrasting elements, mixing style directions and combining old with new. 

We worked with interior designer and stylist Christine Hærra to achieve the exact look we wanted. Photos are by Sveinung Bråthen for Fargerike.

Hope you like the suite, it's definitely been one of my favorite projects!

This is a fantastic and very chic hotel room. Purple is a very regal color. The color really comes across very well in the room and the different shades of purple come across quite well in this photo. The lavender tone in the living and dining room really looks good.

This volume follows the same formula of cute girls being stabbed in the back then logging onto the replica handbags website, but unlike the last volume there is a real diversity with the stories. In fact, there isn a single girl calling on Hell Girl to get rid of the evil boy who broke her heart. And each person who is sent to hell most definitely deserves it, a thousand times over, whereas in the previous volume some of the situations felt a bit replica wathces overdramatic on the weeping girl part. A cheating boyfriend should most definitely prada handbags be punished, though I not sure if sending his soul to hell is worth losing your own soul when you die. Maybe slash his tires, or pour sugar in his gas tank, or burn his clothes and car via to Exhale which in reality would get you sent to jail but hey, at least you not going to spend eternity in hell after you die maybe?
