Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Plywood in Paris

Plywood just got interesting, and the Parisian loft below shows plywood at its best. Renovated by architects Karine Chartier and Thomas Corbasson, the old industrial laboratory (check out the building’s original freight elevator below) is transformed by adding a heavy textual and uncanny element – plywood.

In other news, I just got the latest issue of Norwegian Elle Interiör, where my blog is featured alongside Bloesem and Designshimmer. We all got a whole spread each, and I just love the pictures on mine, they absolutely "got" my style! Unfortunately I can't show it to you, since there seems to be something wrong with the bluetooth on my phone, so if anyone would like to send me a picture, I'd be very grateful! I'm so flattered to be featured in this great magazine!

But now for the real story, on the plywood loft:

    I used to have plywood floors in one of my previous studios. It wasn't very practical, but it looked pretty cool =D I like that its pattern is so varied; it creates so much life in an otherwise neutral space.

    I'm going to try this, but with a blonder wood. Thanks for the inspiration!

    My boyfriend just read this, and loved it, so he got the idea to build beds for my sons out of plywood. They are going to share a room, so their beds will be lined up along the longest wall, with a sloping ceiling above, so we need some kind of special solution with built in storage. Perhaps I'll show it to you once it's finished...
