It's the season of giving so let's do another giveaway! I know you will love this one, as the prize is 4 Menu Pots, designed by Benjamin Hubert! The collected value of all four is over €300, and it has been provided by Triitme
, an online store and e-mag full of great design products.
2. Tell me what's your favourite product in their webshop!
Good luck! The competition will be open until Dec 12.
I know, this is a blog about about interiors and design, but once in a while I stumble over something so amazing I just have to share it here even if it isn't exactly deco related... This is one of those times. We Are Islanders
is a new Irish fashion label, using traditional Irish fabrics such as Beetle finished Wexford Linen and Tipperary Wool, mixing them with sustainable materials like Bamboo Silk and Salmon Leather Skin, and creating something completely new.
While I totally love the designs and prints of their garments, and the great looking images, what really stands out is the way these prints were made. You see, they are dyed by the tidal water on the Dublin coast line! Below is a video of how this was done.
I will be part of a Christmas event at the Marimekko
flagship store in Stockholm next Thursday 28/11, and I would love to see you there! There will be discounts, a competition where you can win your favourite product, and inspiration galore! I will be styling a Christmas dinner table, and sharing my ideas and tips on holiday decorations during the evening.
Drop by for a chat and some gingerbread cookies!
The latest buzz in the Scandinavian design blog crowd is dark walls. It started already at the beginning of the year, but the real breakthrough must have been some weeks ago when the queen of white walls, Lotta Agaton, painted her entire shop/studio in dark hues. I love this look, but it's not for my home which is already way too dark even with white walls. I think you need a lot of daylight to keep dark painted rooms from feeling like you are living in a cave.

show lots of great examples of spaces where this look absolutely works!
