Helene Arentz set up HA Interior Design in Norway in 2007 and relocated to southwest London in 2013. Trained as an interior architect in Oslo, her style is calm and has strong Scandinavian influence.
Many of my clients are in search of someone to help to transform their home to meet the changing needs of their family. Transformations can be as simple as a fresh choice of colours, a new layout or a finishing touch; or they can involve a more radical redesign of the way living space is used, or a total reimagining of their home with built extensions. The most important, and the best part of my job, is to help my clients to visualise their dreams, help them to define their needs and way of living, in order to create good solutions for their home. A good solution is practical, personal, beautiful and unique.
I like to mix in vintage pieces and design elements from other cultures in my work, and pay close attention to encourage my clients to chose durable and honest materials, pleasing textures and wholesome combinations. Natural colours and materials is always a good starting point, however, from there it`s so many ways to chose and I will guide you through the process.
For many years I’ve dreamed of designing my own range of wonderful products that adds something more than just another “thing” to a home. After some years in London, with access to the most amazing Antique markets and secondhand shops, it came naturally as a collection of handmade and unique items, vintage textiles, rugs from all over the world. I do the sewing myself in quiet hours, and I find the process of giving new life to the “old and worn” enormously valuable and fun. I only create things I´m found of myself, and I´d love to show how I use them in modern and contemporary environments. Hopefully you will see something that gives you an idea for your personal home. Finally, I’ve done it and I’m so excited to share it with you,
