Calm living by Cecilie

Our home is a reflection of us.
It’s like an extension of our family and our personalities. It’s a place for playing music too loud, cooking, drinking wine, laughing, reading and working, it’s where we can feel safe, relaxed, happy and a place to be calm.

Alba’s muted palette is inspired by nature’s tones, the Nordic light, moods and senses of our homes, music and art. When working with a neutral palette, our senses can more easily decipher nuances in shades, tones and texture.

The Danish painter Wilhelm Hammershøi, with his limited greyish tones, is one of our great inspirators.
“The poetry of silence” you find in his paintings reflects the timeless atmosphere we seek throughout Alba`s universe.

In limitation you find freedom.

Wilhelm Hammershøi (1864-1916)

With all the chaos in the world, we need calmness, time and space to get to know yourself and your dreams.

Balance at home contributes to our sense of well-being. When rooms breathe we feel at ease.
When objects are placed in harmony they can create a calming effect.
Materials, textures, light and sound all add to the atmosphere too.

Alba means sunrise in Italian and we want to shine with you.
