We are excited to be back at the most spectacular show of the season. The Milan Design Week so far has been impressive and fun.
This year we are happy to see Jotun back in the Ventura Lambrate design district. Curated by Katrin Greiling the exposition ‘Everything is connected’ brings together talents of the Norwegian design and craft scene to tell the story of the country’s creative presence. This all against the backdrop of Jotun’s newest colors that will set the trend for this year. Norwegian Wood, Blue River and Nordic Breeze have been exclusively designed for Milan Design Week.
Changing seasons always makes our stylist heart a little restless as this is the perfect moment for change. We were very curious about some of the colors on Jotuns new color chart and that in combination with being totally ready for something different made us decide to take a little gamble.
The good thing about creating a statement wall in your home is that it is a big effect in very little time. This wall only took one can of paint and four hours to complete including the styling. The proof is in the video. Bye bye white walls, hello dusty red!
Colors are one of the most inspirational elements in interior styling. An therefore the launch of new colors is something that excites us. Take for instance the colors that Jotun launched during the Milan Design week. Their color range Structure brought back the focus on creating tranquil spaces with calming colors.
And that was so spot on that we fell in love with all the earthy tones in paint and design. We left monochrome for what it was and embraced this new trend with both arms.
The dip dye trend reminds us of the DIY t-shirts that we made in the late ’80’s. Back then, we certainly did not have the patience and approach (not to mention style) that we have developed over the years to make a piece of cloth dipped in a big bowl of paint look good.
Recently we came across this trend again and decided to give it another try. This time not on our old white tee but on the curtains in the boys room. We thought they could use a funked up version to add a bit of boho to their overall crisp Scandi room.
Although our style has hopefully changed, the method of dip dye has not. It’s easy but does require the right materials.
