HOW TO GET THE HYGGE FEELING

With days getting shorter and Christmas getting nearer we can all use a bit of hygge in our life. You know, that feeling of coziness. This Danish & Norwegian word that everyone is obsessed about lately has us all longing for those little moments that makes us happy and relaxed. With synonyms like cozy, comfortable, warm & welcoming, hygge is definitely the way to go!

So with these words in mind, I have created a little compilation of items that will get you into the spirit!

Who else is obsessed with ceramics? After I visited the home of ceramics this summer, a place called Grottaglie in the south of Italy (which I highly recommend to anyone who loves ceramics), I have been browsing online for beautiful pieces.

NEW TREND // PAINT SPLATTER SURFACE

paint-splatter-new-trend-2016

Something I noticed from walking around at the Milano Design Week was a trend of paint splatter on different surfaces. Its quite a fun and playful effect that goes really well with the trendy pastel colours but also makes a nice statement in black & white. I have therefore done a little round-up of products with this paint splatter textured effect on;

Why not add a little confetti to your life with these cute Ferm LIVING napkins?

Loving the Plissé Folders by ATWTP for HAY, they are great archive folders for storing your drawings, pictures or documents. Team them up with the Tower Blocks for even more colour splatter fun on your desk.

The new Last Stool Splatter family by Max Lamb for HEM is made from just a single sheet of turned metal, hand-painted and then fired at 800C for a perfect enamel finish. This could be a nice and subtle way to add the trend into your home.
