If there is one thing that can spruce up your home in an instant, it is the change of the wall covering. After struggling to find an appealing and decorative wallpaper, the founder of Ferm LIVING, Trine Andersen, decided to design her own. And so, it all began fairly modestly back in 2006 with Ferm LIVING’s first wallpaper designs. Since then, wallpaper has had a special place in our hearts. Since then, the wallpaper collection of enchanting and surprising patterns has constantly been expanding over the years. Last year we teamed up with the renowned London-based illustrator Katie Scott, who created some wallpaper designs for us. Get a glimpse behind the scenes of the wallpaper design and the production.

THE STABLE HOUSE BY FRAMA
The Stable House is one of a few preserved villas in Copenhagen. The building originally functioned as stables for the horses that carried water from the lakes, and the protected facade was created in 1878 by Georg Møller. Frama Studio has completed the residential project, where a series of stylish details included pivoting brass shutters, a terrazzo floor and a custom-made bed wrapped in solid Douglas fir. The result is a light, warm yet minimalistic feel where every detail of the custom-made furnishings and interior has been thought through.
