Pantone Colour of the Year 2016 interior design

ROSE QUARTZ & SERENITY AT HOME

INGRIDESIGN-pantone-colour-of-the-year-2016

This week the Pantone Colour of the Year was announced and for the first time it was a combination of two different shades; Rose Quartz & Serenity.

“Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.” – Pantone

Here is a selection I put together showing you how to add touches of Rose Quartz & Serenity in your home;

MY IKEA CATALOGUE 2016 FAVOURITES

INGRIDESIGN_new ikea catalogue 2015

I am currently on a trip home to Norway visiting my family & friends. It’s so lovely to be back in the land of fjords, although the weather is quite different from what I am used to now.. When I got home I was happy to discover the new IKEA catalogue had arrived, so I thought it was a good idea to post some of my favourites from it here on the blog.

I love the KNAGGLIG boxes in untreated pine wood, they are great on their own or stacked together as a custom storage space.

The LISABO desk in ash veneer with legs in solid birch gives a warm and natural feeling to your work space. Each desk has its own unique character because of the distinctive grain pattern in the wood surface.

When putting on makeup and getting ready in the morning it is important to have even lighting without any shadows. That is why the STORJORM mirror with integrated lighting is the perfect bathroom mirror, plus it also looks beautiful.

The DALSHULT / SLÄHULT table is so pretty, and the combination of the crossed trestle base in wood and the white table top is so fitting.

I like the whole SÖERHAMN sofa series, but especially like how they have created a little cosy nook by using the SÖDERHAMN footstool in dark yellow. A lovely little spot to relax and read a good book..

The TJUSIG hanger comes in white or black and is a great addition to any wall. It is a practical storage space for clothes, bags, hats or anything you want.

I think the RANARP floor lamp have a nice industrial feel to it, but also really like the wall / clamp spotlight from the same series.

The IKEA 365+ jug in clear glass with cork lid can be used for both cold or hot drinks and is the perfect match with another favourite of mine, the mugs in the same collection.

And of-course my favourite chairs; the JANINGE chair collection that I wrote about here.

Spent this Saturday snapping away at the Salone Del Mobile exhibition in Milan, a showcase for the latest in furnishing and design. It was a massive exhibition space, so having the map at hand was a must.

So much inspiration & great design in one day, here are some of my highlights (but be warned – it’s a lot of yellow!) :
