A sneak peek of Marimekko's news for spring 2015. Some of the items in the pictures we know from before (I like the watercolour-inspired service), but the pattern from Kustaa Saksi is new. I especially like the red and blue bowl and plate in the last picture! The pattern is inspired by the seafloor and Kustaa's scuba diving!
I also have not seen the green mugs in the Sääpäiväkirja-series (~weather diary series) before. Look nice! I am hung up on mugs and as there are nowadays new series several times a year, it is starting to become a real dilemma. Two mugs of favourite patterns every now and then...would that be the solution? I have kind of started that trend when it comes to Marimekko's items. These are happily mixed according to the mood and season with the traditional, complete series from other brands.
I have had some real stress moments this week. My birthday is coming up and there has been a lot of baking et cetera ongoing. I had my friends over yesterday and got, among other things, this from my dear soul mate (thank you)! Of course she knows (and reads my blog). Candle with pomegranate scent! And I like the typography of it!
Today I take a break from the flour bags (one baking round left, phew...recipes anyone?) and go out and enjoy the autumn sun!
Menu launches a new collection at the Maison & Objet trade fair in Paris 5-9 September. The collection includes this interesting coat hanger, designed by the Stockholm-based design agency Afteroom. The design is so simple, yet so perfect. It is available in black or white. I like!
I spotted the Afteroom chair last year (here) and made a mood board (here), and new versions of this are now also available in Menu's collection.
