Timeless color and shape

February 12, 2013

Here is something really colorful for you and I hope it will cheer up the beginning of the new week!

This is an apartment of two interior designers Pia Kriisin and Johan Dalin in Malmö. 72 square meters with two large terraces are decorated in bold colors and by mixing timeless designer pieces like Alvar Aalto chairs and Eames Lounge Chairs with some IKEA pieces. Home owners say that when decorating, you shouldn’t be too picky – everything doesn’t have to be perfect! This last thing is definitely something I should jot down and keep telling myself over and over again, because I’m constantly struggling with decor choices in my own home… There is a little annoying perfectionist inside of me I should get rid of :)

Eames lounge chairs and colorful bookshelf displayThis last picture with large colorful bookshelf reminds me that yesterday I came across a photo of a bookshelf in Lotta Agaton’s home and I spent some minutes just watching it – there are some good ideas how to organise a bookshelf in not so traditional way as we usually do! So go and check out if interested!

    TWO Eames lounge chairs??? So jealous! That book shelf is so colorful and fun! I totally know what you mean about being a perfectionist. Sometimes I come to a complete halt because I can’t let little things go. I need to learn how to relax and let things be a little imperfect. Some of the best design is often accidental!

    Yeah, let’s be honest – there is not much to be picky about when one has two Eames chairs waiting in the living room… ;D But seriously, it’s a lovely apartment! :) And if it’s any consolation, I have a constant struggle between my hunger of perfection and my sanity. And by the way, the first one usually wins. :)

    Ha, I knew that perfectionism is a wide-spread thing (2 comments from perfectionists and 0 from non-perfctionists!) and I’m not the only one having to deal with that! ;)
