Ferm Living: Nostalgic Pastels

Continuing on a Pastel note, I ran into the new Ferm-Living catalog, which, is full of pastels tones and nostalgia. Ahhh.. great combination of colors bringing the new breeze of march full of emotions and memories from lost childhoods and new ones to come. I have never seen feeling and art direction win over the hard sell mentality of the “product integrity” or “make the logo bigger!”. Finally a catalog with delightful washed out tones and lighting that interferes with the original product making it closer to art and not to advertising. I personally would shop more often if I was exposed to this kind of end result between design and art direction. Love it! Of course it had to be from Denmark.. not surprised about that! Enjoy.

Barcelona in White

I miss Barcelona; my lovely cousin, vermouths and beautiful apartments with great mosaic floors. It is quite nice and rare to find an apartment with mosaic floors with pale tones and shades of white, like in this case. I love the simplicity of the space. You really don’t need much furniture when you have windows like these, mosaic floors and don’t forget…LIGHT. Even though it’s hard to believe this is a luxury that it is rare to find in Barcelona. Think about it, old buildings were designed up to six and seven floors tall along very narrow streets not allowing the light to enter. :( But let’ not be sad. You can still find beauties like this one! Enjoy!

Color my floors

This beautiful work comes from GROOPPO Architecture Studio in Italy. I am a lover of white floors, but that’s the reason why I am so impressed with this project, because it really makes me rethink the idea of having some color tiles in my home instead. The tile work in this project is a chromatic master piece. If you are thinking on refurbishing some rooms I will suggest some tiles floors with these soft palette of colors. I assured you you wont get bored of looking at them, I actually think the will make your beautiful memories get pressed into your mind with more color.

Add a bit of color this Spring

I have posted about TineK collection recently to show you guys the batik wallpaper that I personally find so incredible. TineK keep everything very well balance with her black and whites tones, but I am happy to find a splash of color other than blue this spring. An unexpected Salmon that poses in these photos so beautifully, I also thought that I could bring a bit of color to your monday blues. Get a little inspired with these nice arrangement of objects and tones.

Vintage Christmas decor and party tips

I ran into a new online magazine “Billie” that had the most beautiful photos and inspiration for these holidays. I hope you guys will appreciate this very simple and naive way of decorating your home. I personally find it exquisite and sensible. I love it! My recent post had some inspiration for this simple, natural look. Here I would like to share some more so you can see how simple it is and what an incredible change of atmosphere can bring to your home these holidays.

vintage decor for ChristmasLighting is everything, low light for a holiday party is a key factor for your success and people wanting to stay. So keep it low, add some touches like this watercolor painting wrapped in a old mirror at a table, it would set the tone for a cozy lovely night.

Vintage decor for ChristmasMore natural touches for your mantel, get some pine cones, antlers and a dried wreath, mix it with some vintage tea lights and fresh flowers, so simple and yet so beautiful.

vintage Christmas Decor ideasAnother very efficient way to change the atmosphere of a room is to put in some flowers arrangements. Mix few blooms with wild greens with no organization, it will give your space some drama and personality. This step is as simple as placing an order at marksandspencer.com, and can bring a completely new vibe to your home interior. Naturally, your plants won’t last forever, but whether it’s putting an arrangement in a vase as a table center piece, adorning a countertop with a few orchids, or even keeping a potted, indoor tree in the corner, plants can become central elements these holidays.

Absolutely love the old bottle covered with wax for the food table, the napkins with that nordic design is just perfect, combining vintage plus modern and practical for a good party. Always combine food with lots of colors like peppers with goat cheese , red and white. Or grapes and nuts, green and brown. You’ll end up with a very colorful table, always when you think on what to serve for food think of colors. I’ll make the range come out naturally if you mixed it up.

Set a stay with everything you need to mix a good cocktail, simple like vodka tonic and add some candy canes to bring the holidays in this spot of the party.

Christmas the nordic way…

It’s almost Christmas and what better way to get ready for it than get some inspiration from our beloved nordic people. This villa outside Copenhagen shows a Christmas decor a bit desaturated and full of nostalgia. I am in love with the earth tones and the vintage pieces that decor every corner of this incredible villa.

Mei Xian Qiu’s Work of Art

On Saturday I was walking through an Art Opening in Los Angeles when I ran into Mei Xian’s work. At first the bright colors and the big canvases are what caught my attention and suddenly I was hooked. Her work is full of irony, meaning and poetry. Mei was born in Java, Indonesia from Chinese parents, they migrated to California when she was very young spending her life between the US and China as a parental attempt to not being westernized. You can see her life in her juxtaposed work of photography, glass and illustration. Beautifully displayed against the light making all the layers and colors come to life. Her work not surprisingly ended up in the pages of Living ETC, UK for the May issue. I really enjoyed meeting Mei; she was warm and eager to explain her work to me and eager to know about other people’s juxtaposed lives as well. Enjoy!

Design Lesson No. 2. Serge Mouille.

Moving onto another region in Europe our next designer comes from France, Paris. Serge Mouille (1922-1988). Serge graduated as a silversmith from the School of Applied Arts in Paris. His works are an onomatopoeia of nature. He mostly dedicated his works to create lighting sculptures or lamps, cause his work to me is a piece of art with a function. His lamps resemble insects that move around the space without disrupting the life of others beings. I think his work is timeless and enchanting, his lamps in any room transform the place to a different level, mysterious, enchanted, fable like. Serge dedicated his life to work and teach. His lamps will always be an incredible discovery to the eye every time you look at them.
