NEW TREND // LARGE STATEMENT PRINTS

I love the idea of having a large statement print somewhere, especially something personal like a blown-up black & white photo from traveling or nature. Below are a couple of inspirational images found online showing different ways you can incorporate an oversized print or artwork into your home.

Large printed black & white photo attached to a vintage school room map via Design*Sponge. What a creative way to mount a print, giving off a vintage vibe.

A minimal painting as seen here by Stylizimoblog home can add a calm and beautiful tone to your space. Especially if you have darker walls, a light coloured artwork can be a nice contrast.

If you don’t want to hang anything up, having giant frames on the floor can do the trick, like here found on My Scandinavian Home.

A large landscape print can work great along a large wall. The simplistic and minimal look of these winter trees found via April & May work great in a white space.

I think the bedroom can be a great place to add a large print. Keep it a bit funny with a statement like this one from Tamara Magel.

Or what about printing a selection of smaller prints to hang up so that they make up one big poster? This can be a cheaper and quite decorative way to get something unique for your wall. Image was found from Emma Woods Interiors on Instagram.

What do you think about this new trend, will you be adding an oversized print or artwork in your home?

TOP FOUR SPRING INTERIOR TRENDS 2016

spring_trends_scandinavian_design_2016

Swedish Residence magazine created this shoot to show us this spring’s top four trends. The styling is by Eva Lotta Sundling and Elin Kickén.

1 // LOCAL MANUFACTURING & FOCUS ON THE ENVIRONMENT
Our interest in locally made products with a focus on sustainability and environmental awareness is increasing. We want to know everything about what we have in our home; where things come from, how and under what circumstances they have been made. We therefore choose to furnish with items produced under good conditions, with long-lasting qualities and with as little impact on the environment as possible.

2 // TEXTURE & COLOUR
This spring its all about warm colours, different shades of beige and rusty tones mixed with simple colours like black and white. We experiment more with textures and materials such as velvet, leather, metal and chrome to create a feeling of depth.

3 // ELEGANT
We are seeing more and more influences of art deco in the accessories and furniture, and a grown-up elegance takes place in the interiors.

4 // UNIQUE & PERSONAL
We’re looking for a personal and unique touch to stand out from other and be different. There is a growing interest in ceramics, unique pieces and handmade crafts. By mixing different styles and eras there is more room for individuality.

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.
