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!
We are hooked on the new AW16 launch of Design Letters. You know by now that we have a weak spot for their clean ABC collection so this new product was happily received. HOOK2 is a personal hook with typography designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1937 from their Vintage collection.
You can imagine these hooks in a hallway or bathroom with someones initial on it or creating a word like COAT or BATH. Or maybe use it as a silent way to tell your children something by hanging TIDY UP in the playroom. Although Jack and Sam don’t need a reminder of this, we put up FUN and they loved it.
The clever thing is that underneath the big round hook is a hidden small hook. That means, that the hook looks good on the wall, even when in use. Practical and clean, just the way we like it. Are you hooked? Check them out on the Design Letters now!
At the top of our work-related bucket list was organising a collaborative photoshoot moulding together the most awesome kids interiors from new brands on the block and other small labels that we favor. We wanted to keep it simple, creating something that could work in any environment, yet with a funky vibe. Jungalow style. We Live Loud right, so why not?
