Love these beautiful new water colour art prints ‘Leaf me’ and ‘Cove‘ by Copenhagen-based artist and graphic designer Silke Bonde made exclusively for The Poster Club webshop (which I introduced you here). Silke Bonde says that these prints are inspired by the beautiful ‘skeleton’ you will find in a leaf, always varying from one another and forming its own natural expression and thereby creating small and unique pieces of art.

The prints are exclusively available worldwide via The Poster Club.

Daniel Wellington watch + a special discount

Beautiful and minimalist Daniel Wellington watch

Daniel Wellington Classic Sheffield Lady Silver watch
 
I received my Daniel Wellington Classic Sheffield Lady watch a few weeks ago and I’m loving it more and more each day! I had admired its minimalist and classic design already for some time and now I’m more than happy to have it! I like that it’s so versatile – the watch fits perfectly with casual outfit I wear most of the days, but looks so good also on more elegant occasions. And I have to admit that in addition to looking good on wrist, it’s quite perfect also on desk or bedside table or wherever you put it. Or what do you think? :)

If you have had this watch in wish list or just fell in love with it now, there is some good news for you: Daniel Wellington is offering 15% off of your order in their store if you use code DECORDOTS at checkout (valid until April 30).

Blue trend in home decor | Blue tableware

March 25, 2015

Blue is a real big trend in interior design right now and tableware is no exception. We can see deep indigo tones and inky shades of blue both as patterns and as a solid colours on dinnerware from various brands. Updating your tableware collection with only just some pieces of new ceramics is a easy and affordable way to bring blue trend also to your kitchen and dining room. Here are some of my finds.
 
Broste Copenhagen tableware. Blue trend

Beautiful tableware Nordic Sea from Broste Copenhagen. It’s soft shades of greyish blue with organic patterns and texture are just divine!

Interior inspiration | String shelves

I have written about my love for String shelving system before, but I think that it’s a topic where you can’t have inspiration overdose as these shelves are really highly customisable and can be used in so many different ways.

I’m really happy with my little String shelf in the living room and sometimes play with the idea of adding some units to it. Unfortunately we don’t have enough spare room in our living room… But those of you who have and who have been dreaming about these shelves there is a good news from Finnish Design Shop: they offer -15% discount from all white String system units until 14 March! Quite tempting, isn’t it? :)

IKEA Janinge chair from From Us With Love

New Janinge chair from IKEA

IKEA Janinge chair
 
A new beautiful chair JANINGE designed by From Us With Love design studio for IKEA.  It’s made of reinforced polypropylene plastic and has a modern feel.

According to Jonas Pettersson of Form Us With Love:
JANINGE are chairs that works equally well around a dining table in the home as a restaurant. The chairs are sleek, extremely durable and we have put a lot of care that they’ll look good from every angle – even from below. If I summarize JANINGE it’s chairs made ​​to last long. They are durable even for the eye.”

I especially love the shape and clean lines of the armchair, I think it would fit perfectly into a Nordic style home office! Available in white, yellow and grey from mid October.

Shop love | THE POSTER CLUB

September 30, 2014

THE POSTER CLUB shop

THE POSTER CLUB

Webshop THE POSTER CLUB

Online shop THE POSTER CLUB

 

Today I want to introduce you one really lovely online shop THE POSTER CLUB. It’s Copenhagen-based webshop offering a carefully curated selection of posters fitting perfectly into every Scandinavian style interior. They ship internationally and that’s even better – shipping will be completely free if you order 2 or more posters! Their collection includes many of my old and new favorite prints, from example the ones from My Deer, Playtype, Kristina Krogh and Kristina Dam.

To get to know a bit more about THE POSTER CLUB I asked its founder Thomas Nissen some questions which he kindly agreed to answer.
 
Tell us a little bit of your background.

Before launching THE POSTER CLUB I have worked a couple of years in different marketing related positions and prior to that, owned a clothing store for five years in Copenhagen, selling menswear from high end fashion brands. But design and interiors has always been a passion to me, so when the opportunity came to open up my webshop I had little doubt, that it was the right thing for me to do.

How you came to the idea to launch THE POSTER CLUB?

The idea behind THE POSTER CLUB actually came when I was searching for some posters to our home a year ago. I really had a hard time finding something that I liked and the selection in the different webshops were often either very limited or on the contrary huge with posters of various standards, making it almost impossible to know where to begin. I felt like what I needed, was a shop that brought all the good stuff together for me in one place. And that’s really what I’m trying to do with THE POSTER CLUB.

What are your plans for THE POSTER CLUB?

Well, since we launched, only three months ago, everything has been quite hectic and busy – but in a good way. Coming out on the other side, it is now time to look at some of the many ideas we have to make our shop even better and we expect to implement some really unique features within the next couple of months. Besides that, we continue to add new posters to our selection on a weekly basis, and have a lot of exciting new stuff on its way – especially photo art, which is a trend that is really booming right now. So expect to see much more of that in the near future.

What inspires you?

I spend hours every day browsing interior blogs and magazines, Instagram and Pinterest in search for new posters to the shop and to keep up with the trends. That is by far the biggest source of inspiration to me and it never gets boring. Its simply amazing how many talented people are out there. On a personal level, me being from Denmark, I’m definitely inspired by the minimalistic design that Scandinavia is so well known for, which I guess also shows in the simplicity and “look-and-feel” of my webshop.

What is your advice to someone thinking about launching an (online) business but still in doubt?

If you think you have a good idea, I say go for it. And don’t be afraid if some else is already doing the same. Just do it your own way and try doing it better. There is nothing more satisfying than building something up from the bottom and seeing it grow. But remember to be realistic about it, it takes time for people to get to know you. The good thing about doing business online however, is that you can actually often start out by doing it a long side your normal full time job, just to see the potential of your idea/concept before going all in.

 

Thank you Thomas for your time, it was so interesting to get to know a bit more about you and THE POSTER CLUB!

P.S! There’s a giveaway running on my Instagram feed where you have a chance to win a Playtype poster of your choice from THE POSTER CLUB’s selection! Hop over here to join in!

It’s located in Helsinki Kalasatama district and decorated by Minna Jones (you can see photos of her own home and read an interview with her here) for NCC housing.

Balance vase set in black by Muuto

Muuto now has a beautiful new chair in its collection – the Fiber Chair made of recyclable plastic and wood fibers. Fibre chair has been designed to balance maximum comfort with minimum space. With a vast palette of shell colors, premium upholstery and leather options, and four different bases, it is quite versatile chair. Another new piece of furniture in their range is Airy coffee table, which comes in four different sizes and shapes and four different soft colors of grey, black, oregon pine or off-white.

In addition to new pieces of furniture, Muuto has launched also some really nice new home accessories. In line with the marble trend, they have launched Groove trivets made from white, grey or green marble. New candlesticks called Grip, and new set of Balance vases together with a tray on which they can be attached with a big hidden magnet.  Finally, maybe my most favorite piece from their new products is the Push coffee maker which combines different materials and textures in its brown-grey stoneware body, its transparent lid and the beech wood grip. Looks good and definitely feels good to use :)
