INSTAGRAM FAVOURITES #4

insta-faves-4-gif

I’ve been collecting my favourite Scandinavian finds on Instagram this month, which was a very inspiring & fun but difficult task. Want to find out more? Just click on a name to be directed to their full Insta feed for you to enjoy!

1) @emmeselle by Norwegian artist Mona Stenseth Larsen is Scandinavian folklore meets pop art. I love how she takes normal everyday objects from Norwegian culture and creates beautiful illustrations like this one;

2) Beautiful & elegant jewelry by @mumbaistockholm, a Swedish brand using only 100% recycled gold and silver and certified stones. They also offer customers the possibility of sending in old gold jewelry which they then remake into new and modern mumbaistockholm designs. A clever way to update your jewelry box!

3) Cute Scandinavian style DIY letters in beads by Danish @sostrenegrene. You can see how they are made here on their YouTube channel.

4) @sognehome is a Norwegian brand that I’ve followed on Instagram for a while now. I love the simplicity of their homeware, and this mug with “pause” written on (which means break) is the perfect reminder that sometimes all you need is to stop and just enjoy a nice cup of coffee or tea.

5) Because who wouldn’t want one Fjallraven Kanken backpack in each colour.. Find the whole range here.

6) How beautiful are these pastel vases by Malmö-based @scandinaviaform?

7) It’s getting very cold, and a pair of traditional knitted woollen socks like these ones captured by @livingenjoy is a must!

8) @lemurdesign is a Danish brand creating beautiful lifestyle & home accessories like these leather wallets.

9) Be sure to check out @heidisuuldesign. She is a Norwegian designer & illustrator creating beautiful art with a true Scandinavian feel.

This is a monthly post, so stay tuned for more Scandinavian inspiration! And do share in the comments below if you have any great Instagram accounts you know about that I should check out.

INGRIDESIGN_but-first-coffee-image

Did you know that it’s the national coffee day today? In honour of all things coffee I therefore decided to share a little selection of some nice Scandinavian design mugs. So grab a coffee and have a browse;

KÄHLER ‘BARISTO CUP’
This collection of aesthetic coffee cups by Danish Kähler is so effortlessly beautiful, and adds a design twist to any kitchen. You can also get the Baristo Stand to create a cosy café atmosphere in your own home.

ALMEDAHLS ‘SILL MUG’
This mug has a traditional pattern of herring (or sill as we say in Scandinavia) on, which has been around since it was created in Sweden in the 50s. Now it has become a design classic with the perfect Nordic mood.

DARLING CLEMENTINE ‘RAINDROPS MUG’
Enjoy a coffee on a rainy day from this pretty mug by Norwegian Darling Clementine. If you are more of a confetti kinda person there is also another mug for you, but you know that rain is just confetti from the sky anyway..

HOUSE OF RYM ‘JUST MY CUP OF TEA CUP’
This lovely cup is designed by Elisabeth Dunker for Swedish brand House of Rym. It has the perfect autumn vibe and brightens up any cold day.

DESIGN HOUSE STOCKHOLM ‘MINE’
Technically this is a teacup but I thought it was too beautiful to leave out. The Mine cup was designed by Anna Kraitz and is an elegant piece of everyday luxury. The main feature is the non-traditional handle which comes in different colours and adds an unexpected touch.

FERM LIVING ‘GEOMETRY ESPRESSO CUPS’
This set of four cups all in different design by Danish Ferm Living are a fun way to liven up your table. The geometric pattern gives the perfect Scandinavian feel, and they work just as well alone as together.

IITTALA ‘SARJATON’
The Sarjaton mug by Finnish design brand Iittala come in pink and white with a subtle knitted pattern or white with a simplistic tree pattern. The whole range is inspired and shaped by Finnish traditions, and rooted in folklore and artisan rituals.

DESIGN LETTERS ‘MONOGRAM MUG’
The alphabet porcelain mugs with typography by the iconic Danish designer Arne Jacobsen are everywhere nowadays. They are available in the letters A – Z and are so versatile; use them to serve coffee or tea, as a candle holder, to store pens in on your desk or simply just as decorations on a shelf spelling out a name or feeling (I have me & my boyfriends initials and I love it)..
