What is the difference between a house and a home? A space and a room? What makes a random area in your house a sanctuary you want to escape to?
At the Milan Design Week we literally kept walking into a new trend that opened our eyes. It is a theme that is all about how connecting with people is more important then ever. ‘Everything is connected’ was not only the title of Jotun‘s design exhibition, we also felt this proposition at brands like IKEA, Carl Hansen and Son, Vitra and many more.
Rugs are a total must have in our home. They add structure, warmth and soul to a space. The best thing about rugs is that it is such an easy way to change the vibe of a room.
It is no secret that we love to work with Rozenkelim as they have an amazing selection of distressed carpets and berbers. We have used them in our installations of living rooms, bedrooms, playrooms and nurseries like the custom made hot pink Beni Ouarain rug and the grid berber in this girls bedroom. And also in our own living room you can find a vintage rug from Rozenkelim. The darker tones go beautifully with the overall white interior.
With just over one month into 2017, the exciting time has come where brands are launching their new spring collections. We definitely see the link to some of the trends that we spotted during the Milan Design Week of 2016. The earthy tones, dusty pinks and leafy greens have been translated into some of our favorite design and homeware brands.
