It is mid term break, it is the weekend, it is all fun and games at our house. Having two boys is high energy, laugh hard, play hard.
For this energetic season I ordered some and sportively fun items from Bobo Choses. An old time favorite brand since the day my kids were born. This Barcelona based brand captures the magical, passionate look and language of children – as they put it themselves. We love the fun designs and subtle playful colors. It puts a smile on everyones face in this house. Next to the fashion items they created some additional interior wannahaves of which the pennant which carries out the message ” sometimes you win, and sometimes you learn” absolutely belongs to the favourites of this Legend collection.
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.
Working with Pax and Hart is a dream job. We have been a fan of her work since forever. We have used her art in our own homes, in photo shoots and interior styling projects as they are so versatile and funky.
Last year we had the chance to actually work for this talented lady from Down Under. We were asked to create a concept and style the photoshoot of her new prints that she wanted to present in a homey environment with a vintage yet playful feel.
Like every year, Pantone has launched her new colors again and we are happy to see a few very favorites in the pallet. While many are raving about it, the color of the year Greenery however literally needs to grow on us a bit. We don’t exactly know how we could use this alone or in combination with other colors. Using this color will definitely be a challenge we want to work on. On the other hand, we always have welcomed this color disguised in the shape and form of a plant with open arms into our home, in installations and on photoshoots. And with our addiction for banana palms, potted plants, green juices and macha lattes (well, only some of us…), we are sure we will use Greenery in some way very soon.
