the real deal


This is a glimpse of photographer Siren Lauvdal's home, photographed by Erle Kyllingmark for a book called Norske interiører nå (Norwegian interiors now) published by Orion Forlag in 2007. The book is a presentation of 20 homes lived in by creative Norwegians. Non of the homes were styled before photographed. I like that! I tend to be a bit bored by the over-styled interiors in interior design magazines. I like seeing how people actually live - even if they live in a staged (yet pretty?) chaos. How about you?

You can read an interview (in Norwegian) with photographer Erle and writer/photographer Isabel Watson about the book here. Click here to see some more interiors from the book.

Speaking of Norske interiører nå; I really recommend this article (in Norwegian) in Prosa 05/07 by Kjetil Rolness (who I'm a big fan of).

  5. I am totally with you on the overstyled, overhyped thing. I am much more interested in even how REAL people, non designers live. Have you seen 24h berlin? A documentary made by loads of teams, following the life of people in berlin during one day: old and young, doctors and pregnant ladies, old people in a hospice, a prostitute, a french tv journalist. very entertaining and interesting.

    og er enig med deg angående overstyla bilder, er mye mer interessert i å se hvordan folk FAKTISK lever :D
