How to pick a color for your wall

Now, that is a creative solution! Paint your walls to match your art! 

In other words - first buy or make the art you love. 
Then pic a color from the painting and paint your walls with that. Via

Adding some pastels to the old and used


Pastels are trendy again. Like the soft shades from the Rococo (late 18 century). Or 1950s, like the ones seen here. Trendy means easy to find in stores, if you feel like adding some color to those things and surfaces that need a touch up. What's your preference? Blue or green? Or almost grey?

Natural, elegant and eco-friendly


Beautiful new design by the Berlin based design studio ett la benn. The "kami" collection of pots, vases and home lighting is made of 100% biodegradable cellulose, an enormously solid and light material, "kami" transforms this most abundant natural raw into objects for daily use by simple air drying.

Soft pastel color combos

Muted pastels, much like the ones that were in fashion during the 18 century (see below), are really hot now. I've always seen these pale shades as a thing for bridesmaid's dresses. But now, soft pastels are everywhere. Here a few examples from the pink-peach-pale orange pastel range. Any favourites? 


Nu är 1700-talets mjuka pasteller det trendigaste du kan välja. Här har jag valt att visa några nyanser som går åt rosa. Alltifrån persika till kallare ljuslila. Kanske ett alternativ till klassiskt svenskt sommarblått i stugan? 







Genom att adderar ljus terracotta/koppar till rosa undviker du en alltför stark flickrumseffekt: 





Satsar på persika och terrakotta mot grått eller rött, blir stilen än mer vuxen. Lycka till med dina nya pasteller!

Concrete Bath


I love the simplicity in AgapeDesign's product photos. The concrete surfaces really bring out the beauty of the design. The space in the image above is like a temple. (Others may say it looks like a prison bath!) All photos via Agapedesign.  


Agapedesign's list of designers is really impressive. Like in this case - it's Spanish born, award winning designer Patricia Urquiola, who designed these bathroom furnitures. New design with a wabi sabi feel, don't you think?

Pinhole Window View

I am absolutely mesmerized by Dutch designer  Monique Habraken's 
graduation project Pinhole Window View, 2010
This is how she describe this work on her webpage:

Pinhole Window View expands the pinhole principle 
to encompass an entire room and its contents, 
with a tiny hole in the window forming the only light source. 

Light-sensitive emulsion was painted 
onto a piece of natural fibre textile at the back 
as well as some furniture and then ‘developed’ 
in the same way as a regular photograph. 

Captured in the emulsion are ghostly cityscapes 
and stark silhouettes of tables and chairs in an interplay 
between the interior and exterior surroundings. 

Stunning!!
