I just realized I never published my last post about our Design Bloggers United
Stockholm tour, about our visit to Bemz
(you know, the company that makes fabric covers to transform your old Ikea furniture). It was a while ago now, in February to be precise, but better late than never, right? We were invited over to the Bemz showroom and shop for an evening of creative fun, where we got to design our own cushion covers.
The Bemz staff had gone out of their way to provide us with all kinds of supplies for our designs, there were ribbons, sequins, fabric samples, buttons and rivets in abundance. However, some parts of our group got a little more inspired than that, all in their own special ways... I'll just let the photos below speak for themselves. We all had great fun, so thanks Bemz for inviting us!

As you probably already know, photography is the new graphic print. In the last few years everyone has been adorning their walls with graphic art prints and quotes, but that trend has faded and given room to a more interesting art form; photography. However, finding original photos that speak to you, and aren't already on the walls of all other homes, is quite a challenge. That is why I am happy to be able to present The Print Atelier
, an online gallery of contemporary photography, offering hundreds of images in different styles, from nature panoramas to abstract art.
I picked out some favorites, and there is also a drool worthy video featuring a male model and a stunning room that you don't want to miss...
Let's start this gray and snowy Monday with some inspiring images from a new Swedish bathroom brand called Swoon
, designed by Fredrik Wallner, and since he is Lotta Agaton
's husband, you can guess who styled the pictures. :)
You can pick and mix any combo of handles, colours and legs, see it in 3D on their site and order it directly to your door. I love the slim legs and the thin ceramic washbasins, and the attention to detail throughout the entire collection.
Amazing angles in this townhouse by German architects XTH-Berlin
. The diagonal structures and openings allow the inhabitants too see through the entire house. Brutally simple, with very few materials (concrete, plywood and pine), this house is all about space and light.
Writing this post also reminded me that I still have photos from our blog tour to Berlin that I want to show you... Another day.
