Inspired by the coastline of France and the rich selection of Art, architecture and nature, she has created three designs suitable both for home and public environments.

These designs shows stories of Love, friendship, relaxing at the beach and spending the summer at a foreign place. All designs are painted by hand in acrylic or water color and are available in various color combinations.
Inspiration and Travels
The love for traveling have been the foundation for this new collection, visiting new placed is always a good starting point for whatever projects we are working on. During Karolinas travels in southern of Europe, specifically by the french coast, she explores architecture and art. Both the ones found within ancient chateaus or buildings but also from more contemporary sources. With her own significant artistic expression the Idea of large scale wall murals came to life.
About the designs
The designs have been created within the same process that Karolina normally works with, by hand. With layers of acrylic paint on a canvas the created graphic shapes and silhouettes of people. All combined into a harmony of colors. To incorporate human beings in her work is one of her key elements. the designs are all seen as artistic but are still all different. From the more minimalist floating bodies with its sketchy linework to the more detailed painting that we call ”On the Beach” The colors used in the collection has a base in earthy, warm tones as. Rust red & warm beige. Together with a muted yellow, deep blue and burgundy this collection gives a colorful expression but with a elegant and earthy undertone.
