Hello! I am over the moon with excitement to introduce myself, my name is Kristine Hageland of The Bare Room. I live on Vancouver Island and have personally been an avid reader of sfgirlbybay for quite some time now. I am looking forward to sharing my passion (borderline problematic obsession) for beautiful interiors with you.
Recently I came across Swedish photographer, Kristofer Johnsson and let me tell you…My jaw dropped in awe. Literally. Kristofer has an impeccable eye for interior images, he has created a genuine warmth and presence to his work as if he invites us into his lust worthy world of scandinavian design. Each space has my design eye scanning back and forth!
I love the selection of two low hung industrial light pendants over this dining area. They create a focal point for the room, allowing the white walls and kitchen cabinetry to fall seamlessly into the background.
Quick design query for you… Which would you prefer? Soft and clean minimal lines or layers of texture and beautiful eclectic woven rugs? I must admit I am constantly torn between the two styles.
This art layout grabs my attention in a heart beat! The collection of pieces arranged on a 45º angle.. Simple and Striking!
This particular home pulls on my heartstrings… The clever nook area with a custom built in seat has an afternoon book written all over it. I am drawn to the subtle soft grey tones as they lends beautifully to the walnut pieces and original wood floors. It has a raw organic combined with a minimal esthetic I just can’t turn away from.
‘Til next time!
Kris from The Bare Room.
