For six months, married couple Mette and Åsmund Erøy set up their dormitory, as they had changed a part from the original drawing.

– We chose the Cuba model from Norbohus, and I fell for the facade as soon as I saw it. This house I would have, says Mette.

In 2006, they started construction, and half a year later, just as planned, they could move into a brand new, funkin-inspired house on two floors.

The first floor is about 90 square meters, and the second floor of about 50. The house has neither basement nor loft.

ADJUSTMENTS: The house came with oak parquet and white walls. Because of the children, Mette and Åsmund have mounted a gate from Ikea in front of the steep staircase. The picture on the wall is from the forest outside the house, and is taken by Mette. Photo: Bård Jørgensen

Matte interior tips

  • Dare to show personality.
  • Get samples of wallpaper, paint and fabrics and hang them on the wall for a while before deciding.
  • Do not pick anything until you are completely sure of your choice.
  • Customized solutions for a furniture nest are cheaper than you think.
  • Use auto search on find. no if you are looking for something specific.

The home is sparsely decorated, with a mix of old and new furniture, both for the sake of the economy and because the couple are keen to reuse.

-We have tried to go for affordable solutions all the way, while we do not want to change the furniture still away. There must be solid things coming in the door, “says Mette, who says that buying things used and going on flea markets has been a hobby for her for many years.

But it’s about finding a balance between old and new, because we do not want to live in a house that looks like a museum, says Mette, who has his own blog called Staseli.

NEW AND USE: The sofa is from BoConcept, the shelf from Ikea, the table from a retail store and the carpet from Skeidar. The lamp is from Kostøl in Kristiansand. The wallpaper is No. 7258 from ECO and costs NOK 241 per. roll at Swedish Tapetorama. Photo: Bård Jørgensen

Originally, the walls of the house were white, with oak parquet on the floor. This would change and spice up the expression.

– It was absolutely necessary and we went for daring wallpaper and strong colors on some walls.

Major Changes

Many changes were made to the floor plans. On the ground floor, the ceiling was raised about half a meter to get a more airy appearance in the rooms, which are relatively small.

In addition, they changed the kitchen and bathroom plans and decided to have a soundproof room for Åsmund and his electric guitar.

Sound proof space

-We have had unexpectedly great enjoyment of that room. Some time I worked night watch and needed to sleep on the day. Then I could shut up in there and sleep undisturbed. It’s also okay to see a noisy film late in the evening without waking the kids, “Mette said.

Space Utilization

There was also an extra bedroom and an extra bathroom.

However, because this was not originally signed, it meant that the rooms became quite small, which in turn created a challenge to make the most of their space.

-We went from the store to the store and looked for beds for the children’s rooms, but found no one like that. That’s why we called a piece of furniture and got custom beds that could change as the children grow. In fact, it was not any more expensive than the finished beds we were looking at either, says Mette.

Homeowner’s Web Tips

Mette Erøy has his own blog called Staseli.

She also recommends:

find. no

web gadgets. no

wallpaper theme. see

The family also decided to use a bathroom and kitchen supplier other than those proposed by Nordbohus.

They did because they needed greater freedom to plan in detail in relation to optimal floor plan and what materials they wanted.

They also increased the area in the second floor of the house, so that the living room and kitchen got better space.
