Anna Palmer - Sweden
We love this space and so does instagram. Can you tell us about the mood you were trying to achieve with this space?
I wanted to achieve a playfool mood which makes you happy. With unexpected shapes and colors.
Tell us about the colours, patterns and material choices for this space and how they work together?
We wanted do use many colors and mix and match, the cabinet we bought second hand in a suburb to Stockholm and had it painted in purple (colours Kärleksört by Alcro). The stone above the toilet is a pink based terrazzo which is very unusual and only one supplier in Sweden had it. We had to travel to Gothenburg to pic up (live in Stockholm so 6h drive one way). I really wanted the hexagon shaped tiles on the floor but they were sold out in Sweden so I ordered them from UK (But they are Spanish from beginning). The grout (between the tiles, I do not know the English word for them) is Italian, I really wanted it blue as the wall tiles so it took a while before I found it since the colorful ones is just sold in Italy. For the walls and the door lining we painted it in the color “Lingonmjölk” which means lingonberry milk in Swedish and to follow the color theme in the rest of the house the door lining and the walls are in the same colour. The roof is also painted in lingonberry milk colour. Floor heating is a must and another tip is to have different light sourses, like we have the spotlights and also the vanity lights, that makes the room more dynamic.
Tell us about your Nood selection? Why did you select that design and colour?
I have wanted to have a nood basin even before we had the house. It was just to figure out how and when I could get one.
My favorite has always been the green double coulour one since it Is so unusual to have two coloured basin (even one colour is unusual). At first we wanted to have it in another bathroom but then I realized I wanted the basin in the most central bathroom in the house and then we had to adjust the bathroom to fit the basin. The builders said it was to big for this bathroom but I was sure it would work and it did. I really like that it is big since I hate when it gets a lot of water on the floor with smaller basins.
