Maybe you are one of the 125,000 who follow the Instagram account @miennasverden? There, Astrid Mienna shares tips, advice and inspiration about interior design – a passion she has had for almost as long as she can remember.
– I started subscribing to interior design magazines when I earned my first money as a 15-year-old, and have always been interested in how fashion and color are connected, she says.
– It was my son who advised me to start with Instagram. When I started sharing photos from our brand new funky house with a view of Trondheim, it took off completely on the follower front.
Mienna is a trained physiotherapist and acupuncturist, and is trained in seeing the whole in each person. A mindset she has transferred to the interior world.
– We must create harmony in everyday life, both for ourselves and our home. If we clean at home, we also clean our heads, she believes.
She says that harmony also characterizes the color trends right now.
– The focus is on using natural materials, and we see a general shift towards warmer color palettes and earth tones. Sustainable consumption is in the wind, and the corona period has intensified the trend. The warm nature gives us security, so we choose beige, brown and green in the form of plants, she explains.
