27 February 2017

I’ve been eyeing up black kitchens for a while on Pinterest and love Ikea’s new Kungsbacka model made from recycled materials. Designed in collaboration with Swedish design studio Form Us With Love the doors and fronts consist of a core of recycled timber and a veneer of recycled PET plastic bottles in anthracite.

I like how Ikea have kept the monochrome black look in this set up with a gorgeous black tap and a splashback made form the same material as the doors finished off with a black picture rail at the top including some black hooks to put your favourite cups on display. Ikea doing their own #ikeahack – genius.

UNIQUE MIRROR TRAYS BY NOTRE MONDE HOMEWARE

16 February 2017

notre monde, mirror tray, tables, cabinets, objects, functional, unique, design, trend, antique, light aged mirror, inspiration, travel, nature, distinctive, global patterns, textures, layers, traditional printing techniques, authenticity, character, mystic gold, ocean blue, tribal quest, golden hour
 

Back in October Tiff and I organised a Function+Form Bloggers Tour to Antwerp discovering this hip city (here and here) and all it has to offer including designers and makers. One brand we were introduced to was Notre Monde who’s founder Dawn Sweitzer has been creating unique functional objects since 1997.

Her inspiration mostly stems from travel and nature featuring distinctive global patterns, textures and layers which are translated onto objects with traditional printing and hand-finishing techniques. Dawn is a self taught artist and now lives in North Carolina where she experiments with new techniques to give her designs authenticity and unique character.

She has distinctive ranges from the cheerful and luxurious Mystic Gold and Ocean Blue, to The Golden Hour and the vivid and elegant Tribal Quest inspired by tribal textile prints from Africa to Indonesia. Her mirror trays represent the core of her collection which also features complementary objects such as tables, frames and cabinets.

I was lucky to be given a light aged mirror which adds some much needed gritty-ness and eclectic flair to my home which I tend to keep very minimal. The antique effect on mirrors is a trend I keep seeing more and more of and which works incredibly well with darker interior colours and rich textures – see the velvet renaissance all around.

I’ve not decided as yet if I’m going to hang it up or keep as a tray for special occasions. I guess the beauty in it’s versatility is that I can do both.

HM HOME | TRENDS SPRING 2017

13 December 2016

christmas, HM home, spring 2017, trend, style, styling, lotta agaton, pia ulin, photographer, brass, green, plants, warm, cozy
 

Have you noticed it’s not very christmassy on the blog – yet!? Somehow I can’t find my Christmas mojo and instead I’m being drawn to Spring 2017 already as you can see in these stunning images by HM Home.

Maybe it’s because we’re heading off to the Canary Islands next week swapping Christmas jumpers for t-shirts and turkey for paella. And you know what? I’m totally fine with it and happy to skip the Christmas vibes this year.

2017 will be a big year for us with plans for renovations and moving home so no surprise these images struck a chord with me.

Styled by Lotta Agaton and photographed by Pia Ulin HM Home shows how trends are subtly moving on. Copper is being replaced by brass, stark white by beige / grey neutrals and though blue is still strong green is creeping in via accessories like ceramics, cushions and bedding. Plants and greenery in the home is still a massive trend and the whole look is much warmer and cosier than it has been for years.

Can we fast forward to Spring please!?

COX AND COX FOR THE HOME

24 October 2016

eclectic, beautiful, handpicked, homeware, unique, individual, inspirational, home accessories, lightling, rugs, storage, decorative, hand-selected, christmas, decor, home, style, styling, oak, nordic inspired

 

Eclectic online homewares brand Cox And Cox launched back in 2011 and have slowly but steadily evolved into a niche market place for unique products aimed at customers looking to decorate their home with individual pieces that can’t be found on the highstreet.

A lot of their designs are Nordic inspired with simple contemporary shapes and exceptional quality as this beautiful solid oak bench I was lucky enough to try out. I love the versatility of it and so far it has been used as a side table, plant stand, foot stool and shoe rack. The top is lightly varnished so you don’t have to worry about stains when leaving your coffee mug or glass of red on there and the simple construction and classic shape means we will live with this piece for a long time.

With Christmas just round the corner – only 9 weeks to go, eek – check out their online store for unique and hand-selected pieces to decorate your home with.

I can feel another post coming up… but let’s get Halloween out of the way first before we kick off the festive season.

MUBU HOME | FURNITURE AND HOMEWARES FROM MELBOURNE

30 September 2016

Australian design has long had a fascination for me. The continent that seems further removed than any other (if you live in the UK) has a wonderful cultural mix with strong European as well as Asian influences which makes their creative scene absolutely thrive, producing some of the most innovative designs around.

MuBu Home popped up on one of my late night browsing sessions and is a case in point. Based in Melbourne the furniture and homeware company was set up by husband and wife team French/German Saskia Butin and Australian Michael Urban who met whilst they were both working in Vietnam. Michael is a very much the creative force behind MuBu who came to appreciate the Scandinavian aesthetic and concept of form and function during his time as a chef in Copenhagen before changing careers and working for an Australian furniture manufacturer that brought him to Vietnam.

When their daughter was born the couple struggled to find the kind of quality yet affordable furniture you get in Europe and Michael ended up designing and building all the nursery furniture himself. This was the catalyst to start MuBu Home and they’re now producing their own range of furniture in Vietnam as well as importing furniture by Danish designers that are manufactured in Vietnam.

Along their online store they have recently set up a bricks and mortar shop in Melbourne where Saskia and Michael love helping people furnish their home making sure their customers have a great shopping experience. Design, quality and affordability are MuBu’s cornerstones and they work closely with manufacturers to ensure there is no compromise on any of their values.

I absolutely adore MuBu’s range and their simple and clean aesthetics styled perfectly by Saskia who tells me that their future plans not only include designing more products but also coming up with a concept that combines two of their biggest passions: food and furniture.

I can’t wait!
