Today I was invited to see the Mikado suite that Fargerike have renovated at the Grand Hotel in Oslo, and I can´t say other than; wow! The suite is decorated in lovely shades of purple which is the color Fargerike announced to be the color of the year for 2013. Another thing I like, is all the fabulous Norwegian design they have used in the Mikado suite. Norwegian design is hot, hot, hot these day, so pay attention!
My favorite room var the living room with its lovely dusty lavender on the walls and with a few hints off brass here end there, such a perfect combination. Notice the sofa designed by Norway Says “OK” that are upholstered in velvet purple fabric – absolutely wonderful. The sofa is produced by LK Hjelle.
The plates on the wall are from the collection Lys by Wik & Walsøe. They look all white on this picture, but they are decorated with real gold that gives beautiful sparks and a glittery effect.
In all the rooms you´ll find interesting photo art by Helene Jellestad. They make a great contrast against the traditional furniture.
In the suite you´ll also find The Royal Family that is a collection of decorative glass vessels with fairytale details and shapes, designed by Vibeke Skar. Such a lovely piece of work.
The well known designer Andreas Engesvik´s work is also to be seen in the suite. Both with his beautiful Bunads blanket produced by Mandal Veveri and his new desk Alto produced by Fjordfiesta, which they have painted in a purple color called Pilati. He is also a part of the trio behind the OK – sofa that is in the living room.
So if you are looking for a different kind of hotel room next time you´re in Oslo, maybe the Mikado suite could be something for you? I would love to spend a night here!
