About Me

My name is Mette – a very common name in Denmark – which might be the reason that my style is not that usual. Maybe fed up being common.

I was actually trained to become a teacher but along the way design somehow got to me. Found me. And in 2005 I started a company I named ‘Base212’ – a wholesale company designing and distributing homeware to most of Europe and to distributors in Australia and the US. Twelve years later – in 2017 – I sold the company and am now breathing normally again…

But the thing is that I cannot help it. Here we are 1,5 years later. I think in patterns, colors and through my fingers touching soft textile or a cold piece of Indian stone…

I need to design. To decorate. To work with shapes, surfaces and colors.

I am very much into colors.

Not any color of course. Or any way…

I go with a color that suits me (or my client) e.g. RED – and go crazy in the underlying tones.

Ten years ago one was banned to do so. Same as mixing woods. That was really off. Today it works great if you ask me. Mixing woods and exploring one color going from tomato red to tender pink. Adding a touch of gold or brass and using both new and old, feminine and edgy things, shapes and materials…

And I can teach you to do so as well. Or do it for you. Decorating your home. Your store. Your booth. Designing your next line. I can also put it into production – my manufactures would be happy to help out.

Think about it…
