True interior design artistry

Marie Olsson Nylander is widely regarded as one of our leading style influencers. An interior designer both in her home country Sweden and beyond, the list of credits to her name is impressive in both length and diversity. Her accomplishments include restyling and selling five residential properties, running a cowboy bar, store and wholesale firm, and countless interior design commissions for public-sector interiors, magazine features and private residences. Swedish TV audiences also know and love Marie from the “Husdrömmar” show, where viewers followed the refurbishment of her des res in Höganäs, South Sweden, where she lives to this day with her husband and four children.

Although her original plan was to train as a PR specialist, Marie soon realised that she needed an outlet for her ceaseless creative flows. 

“I just have to be actively creative, else I choke up! Structure and rigidity soon take it out of me. I feel more like an interior artist, and I suppose you could say I’m not your average ‘play-safe’ Swede”. 

How to decorate with Global Living wallpapers

With a boho-glam style angled more at an international market, she creates interiors that are intrinsic artworks, and knockouts with her home fans and Instagram followers. Interiors that are striking yet timeless, in which choice vintage pieces from around the globe are interspersed with contemporary furnishings in a unique fusion. 

When we invited Marie to decorate with our new Global Living collection, there was no doubt which print was destined for her son’s room in the villa in Höganäs. And the result was as on-style as ever.

What thoughts guided your choice of pattern?

The Tribe wallpaper design was a very easy choice! I love the colours brown and Leo-honey, and I’m into checks and that full-on look. I suppose I’ve never really been into subtler things, and low-key home accents like a new spin on the lamp or corner chair don’t do it for me. I’m into that full-on thing! So, obviously, the Tribe wallpaper was the real deal – the name says it all!

What to consider when choosing a wallpaper

What appealed to you in the Global Living collection?

As I see it, Global Living is a wallpaper collection made up of patterns that inject ambience and attitude without upsetting the interior’s balance. The colourways in this collection also give it a timeless and cool vibe! It’s almost like it has a retro feel, but with a nod at urban style. This collection is in no way cutesy, being more on the bold side, and I’m so up for bold! 

How do you feel about wallpaper generally?

Wallpaper is the coolest! To me, it’s an amazing resource that can revamp a room in a day. Decorating with wallpaper is an easy way of ringing the changes – like waving a magic wand!
