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.
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.
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.
You might have seen them come by in our previous installation and on our Instagram, we happen to love them a lot. The playmats from By Alex are not only comfortable, they are original, beautifully made and highly decorative.
