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.

Studio Oyama makes beautiful handmade and hand painted ceramic items like this side plate, a nice decoration to have on the table or even hang up on the wall.

Or why not put up a poster with paint splatter effect on like this beautiful Orb Éclipse by Puldefranck?

What do you think of this trend? Is it something you would add hints of in your home? It could be a good way to literally add a splash of colour!

YELLOW FAVOURITES FOR EASTER

thatscandinavianfeeling_scandi-easter

I don’t know about you, but for me Easter is all about yellow! Yellow reminds me of the sun shining on a clear day and is a colour that brings joy & happiness. Here are some yellow inspiration to get us into the Easter spirit.

The retro Lotus bowl has the perfect Easter vibe. The pattern was designed by the Norwegian artist Arne Clausen in 1963, and is today produced by Danish Lucie Kaas.

Going on a Easter hike or mini vacation? Then the yellow Fjallraven Kanken backpack is the perfect accessory! It was actually originally designed for Swedish school children in 1978, and has now become an iconic backpack around the world. I love that it is made from durable Vinylon F fabric, which repels moisture and is therefore easy to keep clean.

The Bunny Hoptimist is a fun way to add a bit of Easter to your home. Originally designed by Gustav Ehrenreich in the 1970s, the Hoptimist is today one of the Danish design classics. The Bunny is a newer addition to the Hoptimist family, but was created using the same happy principals from the original.

How about adding a bit of yellow to your Easter breakfast table with this Ursula jug by Kähler? Use the iconic jug along with the white plates from the same series.

Wish someone a happy Easter with this cute greeting card by kikki.K, perfect for any chocoholics!

The bright yellow Nappula candleholders by Finnish Iittala can of course be used all year long, but are especially lovely around Easter time. It looks great when you mix together the two different sizes as seen here on the Interior design blog Kettukarkki.

And if you are like me and love cozying up with a blanket in the evening then the Loom soft hand-woven throw by Muuto is lovely. Now bring on the chocolate..

Hope everyone is having a lovely Easter so far!

ENTERING THE FUN WORLD OF MONKI

monki style

One of the shops I miss going for a browse in back home is Monki. If you haven’t heard of this Swedish brand before, be prepared to be inspired by their quirky & cool style! They describe themselves as “a wild and crazy international retail concept that believes that it needs to fight ordinary and boost imagination with an experience out of the ordinary” and I couldn’t agree more. Their website is currently full of great items, here are some of my favourite ones;

Stina pink dress Monki

Marisol yellow trousers Monki

Rosalita green top Monki

Hana dungarees Monki

Anita jaquard dress Monki

Jonna striped dress Monki

Maggie backpack Monki

Be sure to check out #monkistyle for more inspiration or have a browse in store if you are lucky enough to be located near one.
