Thank you very much for including our art in your office makeover and providing us with this photo story by you and photographer Lina Arvidsson. It is exhilarating seeing our own work hung in an inspiring place like this. The art print "Escape" is simply perfect for a workspace in our opinion. It provides a nice resting place for your eyes in between those Skype calls.
JOJ: Tell us about your office makeover
Gen: Prior to the pandemic I was commuting a lot, so I didn’t care so much about the home office. I mean I had a beautiful office, very light and Scandinavian. But now two years into the pandemic working from home took on a new meaning. And somewhere along the way I apparently became a colour junky! I can’t seem to get enough:) And so I looked up my favourite designers and started planning for an improved and more fun home office. And I’m so happy with the result. It really has become the new heart of our home.
JOJ: Curating interiors is what you do for a living, right?
Gen: Yes, I work as an interior stylist, mostly with brand imagery, creating PR content for international companies. So when I am not working in the studio or on a location shoot, then I get to enjoy every inch of the new office. I am French Canadian and even though I have been living in Sweden for 12 years I sometimes still count in inches. Once a Canadian, always a Canadian.
JOJ: Did you buy the purple frame as is or did you paint it? if so what kind of paint did you use?
Gen: Yes, I painted the frame. The color is NCS S1030-R50B . As for the type of paint, I used Sadolin because that’s the one from my local paint store.
The wall paint is also Sadolin code: NCS S0515-R60B

Gen: I think I can say that it has become everyone’s favourite hangout spot! On a daily basis, I share the space with my amazing husband and after working hours, our lovely daughter usually makes an appearance along with her favourite book of the day!
"How cute is that little wall shelf plateau by @tonnfurniture. It comes in raw pinewood so if you’re addicted to colors, a lick of paint will do the trick!"
