Boligkrise episode 8

























How to make a home look good for sale? Clean, throw away and make it stick out in the sea of other objects on the market!

Here are some before and after pictures from today episode.

The home lacked contrast and had alot of black details. I decided to lighten it up, redesign the kitchen and a drawer and add a wallpaper and delicate shade of green. The giant walk in closet was a entire room with open closets. I combined it with a practical desk giving the room a combined use.

That wall paper is so funky, from Cole & Son Palm Jungle. The minty color fits in any room ncs 2005-g30y.

The couple didn`t like the green at all, but at the end of the program they had to admit they liked it anyway! 🙂

Boligkrise Larvik


On this evenings program of Boligkrise we made interior renovation in Larvik.

The smokey, dark outdated Dj livingroom did not reach potencial customers. The ceiling was really low. I needed to lighten up, remove the smell of cigarette, add some color and make it a av inspirational place to live!

With grafic lines, yellow, black& white, redesign, new furniture and a custom made lounge it really became a room full of sunshine!

Here are the before and after pictures!

Thank you Smail & Hege, you are too cool!

And by the way the house is sold and the couple have moved to France!

Boligkrise episode 4 Stavern

Boligkrise episode 4, in Stavern.

The house we visited this time was furnished heavily and seriously detailed. A approach that did not apply to the buyers. Obviously. They had been trying to sell for a long time. And the whole house smelt smoke! Not good. AT ALL!

In the process of selling you home your have to make it inspiring, spacious and light. Appealing to the potencial group of buyers.

I had a serious job in front of me this time!

I took out all the furniture! I wanted a delicate maritim look. Using light blues, wooden items, natural bast, rope and white painted furniture and ALOT of paint I set the style.And added wallpaper in the hall and livingroom, a pattern which gave me a feeling of sailing! And Stavern is so close to the sea. Did keep the rocking chair that was inherited and some paintings.

The kitchen was renovated! I removed a few cupboard doors and delivered the others to a company that spray painted them. The walls were painted and new furniture added. And the huge counter-bar solution that divided the room was removed, they never used it anyway! Instead I put in a regular table, a perfect place to have breakfast!

I really love the way it turned out. And the owner, not liking blue at all, had too admit she liked it in the end after all!

Check out the before and after pictures below!

Boligkrise program 3

DSC_5299DSC_5369Boligkrise episode 3. A dark interior with alot of sloppy work done gave this home a undelicate approach. The owners had been trying to sell for a while, without luck.

The interior was begging for help.

I decided to lighten it all up giving the heavy look a little lightness.

The wooden walls were painted in a light blue. a1510-r80b which gave the livingroom and kitchen a feeling of air and the sky.

The dark painted and black furniture was switched out with white furniture and made out of natural materials. Some elements like the black wall candleholder was spraypainted in gold. So easy!

The kitchen was painted closet doors were painted in white and inside some of the closets I chose a green to give depth and a wow factor. The kitchen tiles were painted in greens and blues with an epoxy paint, ask at your paint store!

And the terracotta tiles in the hall got a coat of deep blue paint s5020-r90b. A simple way to redo tiles without removing them.

All furniture from Ikea.

All in all a makeover with a smart budget, don`t you think?
