Exactly a year ago (really funny coincidence what I found out while already typing this post) I introduced you Frankie & Frenchie – an Australian based brand designing and selling modern and quirky environmental friendly kids bedding. Longer introduction and interview with lovely ladies behind the shop can be found here and you can see Zero to Hero bedding set from their previous collection in my son’s room here.

Frankie & Frenchie has launched a new range of bedding sets, fitted sheets and cushions which complement their monochrome collection with fun and playful characters. Mischievous Miss Meow and buoyant Bandit Bear will add a sense of playfulness and fun to any kids room or nursery and these fun characters are the perfect companion for little ones to explore new things.

Like the previous collection this one too is screen printed using eco-friendly ink on 100% GOTS certified organic cotton. I have to say that I’m really satisfied with our Zero to Hero bedding we got a year ago – it looks still like new (despite it is used almost constantly as it’s my oldest son’s favorite bedding set) and it feels so soft and silky to the skin. Maybe Bandit Bear should move in with us too? :)

Täpselt aasta tagasi (huvitav kokkusattumus, mille avastasin alles siis kui olin juba seda postitust kirjutamas) tutvustasin siin Frankie & Frenchie‘t. Frankie & Frenchie on Austraalia päritolu veebipood, mis müüb nende enda disainitud väga lahedat ja skandinaavialiku stiiliga lastetuppa sobivat voodipesu. Pikemat tutvustust neist saate lugeda siit ning siin on postitus meie lastetoast, kus on muu hulgas näha ka nende eelnevasse kollektsiooni kuuluv Zero to Hero voodipesu komplekt. 

Frankie & Frenchie‘l on just välja tulnud uus kollektsioon voodipesu ja lõbusaid patju, millel figureerivad seiklushimulised tegelased Miss Meow ja Bandit Bear. Eriti tore on see, et nagu ka nende varasem kollektsioon on seegi trükitud kasutades vaid keskkonnasõbralikke riidevärve ning kogu sari on tehtud 100% GOTS sertifitseeritud orgaanilisest puuvillast. Pean mainima, et olen meie Zero to Hero voodipesu komplektiga väga rahul – see näeb hoolimata peaaegu igapäevasest kasutusest (tegemist on Tobiase lemmikuga) välja nagu uus ja tundub väga siidine ja naha vastas mõnusalt jahe. Kuigi Austraaliast ostmine on tolli tõttu veidike keerulisem, hakkasin siiski mõtlema, et äkki peaks Bandiit-Karu Oskarile sõbraks kutsuma :)

Inspiration for creating modern Scandinavian style workspace

These photos styled by Riikka Kantikoski for Finnish Design Shop new 24/7 collection are perfect inspiration of how to create modern and stylish Scandinavian style workspace in home or office. 24/7 is a new office furniture collection consisting of functional and good looking pieces for workspaces that look good together and with its simple and minimalist design are easy to complement with other furniture and accessories. This workspace is a good example of what a good styling and well chosen details can do – otherwise quite sterile and ordinary office transforms into inspiring and stylish workspace.

See (kodu)kontor on hea näide sellest, kuidas muidu suhteliselt steriilne ja tavaline ruum muutub stiilseks ja isikupäraseks kui lisada sellele põnevaid aksessuaare ja mõned huvitavad disaintoolid. Kujundatud ühe mu lemmik stilisti Riikka Kantikoski poolt Finnish Design Shop‘i uue 24/7 kollektsiooni tutvustamiseks. 24/7 kollektsioonis on erinevaid funktsionaalseid ja minimalistliku joonega töökohtade jaoks mõeldud mööblitükke, mis oma lihtsuses on väga kergesti kombineeritavad ja täiendatavad.

Light greige walls and styling love

May 17, 2016

 
light grey wall, shapes

interior details, styling, light greige wall color

greige wall color, dark charcoal linen, Menu lamp and walltable

 

This beautiful warm grey-beige (greige) wall color combined with nice styling caught my eye today. It’s a little bit scary that I tend to like interiors with greige walls just a little too much lately – I hope I won’t start thinking about changing wall color in our home…  Too much going on even without it! (As you may guess from the frequency of posts lately…)

Some things on the photos:

Sofa is Salton from Sofacompany, the lamp beside it is Rope Trick from Wrong for Hay.

The trolley is from Domo Design, lamp attached is Noc light from Wrong for Hay, print above the trolley is from Printler.

Bedside table is Menu Yeh wall table, lamp hanging on the wall is versatile Menu Bollard lamp, similar dark grey or black linen bedding can be found from H&M Home collection.

 

Skandinaavia stiilis interjöörides on viimasel ajal üha trendikamaks muutumas soojemates hallides ja hallikas-beežides toonides seinad. Greige on nende toonide ühine nimetaja inglise keeles. Aeg-ajalt taban ennast mõttelt, et oleks huvitav ka oma kodus veidike seinavärviga eksperimenteerida, kuid arvestades mu niigi tihedaid ja sageli unetundidesse sissesõitvaid päevi ei ole see vist hetkel väga hea mõte… 

Spikerdamiseks piltidelt: 

Diivan on Sofacompany Salton, lamp diivani kõrval on Wrong for Hay Rope Trick

Serveerimislaud on Domo Design, sellele kinnituv lamp on Wrong for Hay Noc light, pilt seinal on Printler kollektsioonist.

Lauake voodi kõrval on Menu Yeh wall table, seinal rippuv lamp on Menu Bollard lamp, sarnast tumedat linast voodipesu võib leida H&M Home kollektsioonist (kahjuks nende eesti e-poes hetkel ei tundu saadaval olevat).

I tried hard not to post these pictures here as they have been doing rounds in blogosphere during the last days and I may be the last one posting them… But I couldn’t resist so here they are.

These images are from the collaboration between Swedish Residence Magazine and housing company Riksbyggen styled by Elin Kickén and Evalotta Sundlig and photographed by Kristofer Johnsson. Capturing the top 4 trends in Scandinavian interior design right now that according to the original article are sustainability, structure and colour, elegance, personal and  unique style. High quality and locally made furniture which has as little impact as possible on the environment is preferred while decorating as are handcrafted and unique accessories. Instead of bright white spaces we see more and more interiors decorated in different types of beige and rusty tones mixed with simple colors like black and white. Warm hues, tone on tone, are trending right now. Matte and structured chalk paint adds texture to the walls. Simple and elegant stye which is grown up and timeless.

The release of this collection coincides with the opening of their second Melbourne retail store in Hawthorn next month which will compliment their existing Malvern East store by providing a space to showcase furniture, rugs and art within a styled insitu environment.

News from Muuto

April 26, 2016

 

 
News from Muuto landed today into my inbox and three great new products are soon available.

Control is a new minimalistic lamp with strong references to both original Hi-Fi equipment and industrial control panels. The light is switched on and off with a heavy click by turning the solid but elegant knob, which also regulates the bulbs intensity. The small size of the lamp allows it to fit in where other lamps do not: on narrow windowsills, in tightly-packed bookshelves and on small bedside tables.

Framed is a series of colored glass mirrors designed by the prominent Norwegian design company Anderssen & Voll, who took the approach of giving new perspective to the conservative mirror.

Ply is a new woolen rug with timeless design. Ply comes in five color combinations and in three sizes with finishing tassels in the corners.

 

 

Silke Bonde Under Water collection

Copenhagen-based artist Silke Bonde has released new watercolor collection Under Water consisting of three art prints Melt, Stripe and Dot. The collection was inspired by diving trips where she fell in love with the beautiful new world she met beneath the surface. She says “The new “Under water collection” is inspired by the shapes, patterns and structures you find under the sea. They are all made with watercolours to reflect the organic shapes and the floating life. When you dive under the surface the red colour is the first one to disappear. The blue is the last one.”

I’m lucky to have one of these beautiful art prints and I must admit that I fell in love with it as soon as I received it. The shades used are really pretty and it brings lovely spring vibe into my otherwise quite monochrome home.

I have always loved chunky knits, both as clothing pieces and as  interior accessories, so I am really happy owning one now from Ohhio.
Ohhio is an Ukraine-based design studio focused on creating hand-made goods for customers who value individuality, honest materials and high quality. The idea behind Ohhio was born when its founder Ukrainian designer Anna Marinenko found herself confronted with a spool of gigantically thick wool. She wanted to make something out of it, but as she didn’t have suitable knitting needles for that task she started knitting with her bare hands. The result was a blanket with gigantic stitches and as she loved its aesthetic so much she ordered more wool. Today all Ohhio pieces are hand knitted with bare hands.

Ohhio has been highly inspired by Nordic culture and lifestyle. Products made by hand from honest and natural material – Australian merino wool – are perfectly in accordance with the concept of slow living and their simple, clean and laconic designs reflect the love for minimalism.

Needless to say, I really love my Ohhio blanket –  it’s luxuriously soft and warm to sit on or wrap around. With its over-sized stitches Ohhio blankets add so much texture wherever used for decorating. It is definitely a statement piece and perfect for creating warm and cozy feeling in a room. In addition to all of that I think that this extreme knit blanket is really photogenic – I love to use it for styling and it looks so good on photos, don’t you agree?

Simple clean lines and calm colour palette of whites and greys together with warm wood create a welcoming modern interior. I love those industrial looking black steel-framed windows and doors connecting rooms and framing views to garden. And that kitchen… !
