Guest Blogger – Bring on the colors

Susanne is busy moving, painting and decorating her gem of a country house, so I suggested to her that I could be guest blogger on her blog. She immediately said yes…

The dagmarnjord.com blog is familiar to me as I work in the backend and do translations.

The old black and white image has been given the company of two gold sprayed cranes. Dull black platter was as transformed with gold spray Paint residues from the bedroom project were mixed with white paint until I was satisfied with the color that matched the background of my favorite painting. The painter Hanne Bonde is a good friend of the family and she is the artist behind this colorful work. The matching wall makes the painting seem like a more harmonious part of the décor. I think I’m well underway with adding colors – thanks to Susanne’s ideas and décor tricks. Maybe she will let me blog again – I would like to blog more about my home and life in the countryside.

Inspired by Susanne’s love of colors, these colorful hyacint vases from my childhood came to light.

Briefly about me:
Pia Haumann, 48 summers, well married and the mother of three great young people. My free time is often spent in homely rural settings in Skivholme. It is through mutual friends that I have met Susanne.

We rebuilt our farm house in 2011 and we got an almost brand-new house, and EVERYTHING was painted clinically white. I have always thought that white gives peace to the eye and that the color white fits well as the background for everything. But I was wrong – colors can do so much more, and I am not at all finished coloring white walls.

First, I will show some examples of how Susanne has inspired me to work with colors. Started by painting an old cabinet – it is now blue on the inside and outside and light was mounted on the inside.

The next project was two blue walls in the bedroom.
The dark color gives a nice tranquility and I am especially fond of the gallery shelf, which was also painted in the blue wall color.
The gold color is chosen as contrasting color and gives an exclusive look.
