Textile Arts

I have already mentioned about the phenomenon of those fabrics but today I wanted to share with you how much of inspiration this can give in the daily interior design. Totally amazed by those colors, patterns and most of all by the softness which they add to the raw, bright and monochromatic Scandinavian interiors. At the moment my favorite is graphic named Hetkia.

Beautiful Finland

Spending couple of days in the lovely city Helsinki we were discovering the beginning of the modernist Scandinavian design. Visit to the Alvar Aalto house and studio gave us a proper background for all others exhibitions. Technical University and the Hospital of this architect were not a question mark anymore but a consequent dialog between the light, white, wood, and the form. Shopping in the finish Marimekko woke up the need for patterns, colors and fabrics in the interiors.. Marimekko fabrics have some of the brightest and boldest prints in the world. They are just amazing to look at and whether you love colors or not you certainly will find something that suits you. Of course we could not resist a small souvenir from colorful iittala glass!

Those tree words are the reason to come back to Helsinki again for more inspiration. At the moment we can tell you the story how it was...

Walking slowly to the exhibitions area close to the harbor we fond lamps that are filling interior with color and soul. In the second plain you can see also Aalto's lamp. Helsinki is proud about their architect, you can notice that on every corner of the street..

White everywhere!

Although it is not winter yet this inspiration taken from Norm Architects reminds me about my love to white. No other color can better express the light and space. Warm beige gives a finish touch to this composition.
