Bold patterns and colours infuse the stylish retro-meets-modern family home of Ferm Living founder Trine Andersen
Trine set up Ferm Living in 2005, after leaving her job as a designer at an advertising agency. “I was working such long hours for so little pay, I thought: ‘If I’m investing all this energy, why don’t I put it into something I’m really passionate about?’” she says. A fruitless hunt for some cool wallpaper inspired her to dream up some of her own designs. Her first was a dramatic black and white print of skeletal tree branches. Leaves, flowers and geometric prints are common themes in her work. “I like the expression retro meets modern,” she says. “I’d say that sums up my style.” When she became pregnant with August, naturally, Trine’s attention turned to designs for children. Among the first of her pieces was a wallpaper print called Dotty, featuring golden-hued trees. “My inspiration can come from anywhere really, from the muted colours of something that’s been bleached by the sun, to a prism pattern on the floor of my son’s kindergarten,” she says.
