Kitchen Stories: Green Hanging Ball

Time and time again I get to see how a single object in a vivid color and cleverly placed vases of buds and greens can uplift an otherwise monochrome space.

A case in point is this kitchen, where the dominating color scheme is black and white.

Iconic Italian Design: Atollo Table Lamp

Geometric, timeless, the Atollo table lamp is high up on my wish list.

Easy to see why. Its opal murano glass shade seems to be suspended above the cylindrical base. And the base lights up too, to create a soft, intimate light, perfect for that Danish hygge feel.

Reflection on Reflections

A shadow on a reflective white surface. Its shallow depth rotates and changes with the progression of light and hours.

Go a Shade Darker: Petroleum Blue

What do you think about this bedroom? Pretty moody, but in a good way I think. Those delicate hydrangeas are just the perfect transition between the dark petrol blue accent wall and the light streaming in from the windows.

Frivolous On Desk Wants

I will admit I want these pieces only for their pretty factor as there’s hardly any major function one can attach to them. But you know, everyone likes to hold in their palm a solid, well designed object from time to time. So there’s that.

The first place on my wants list is held by actual paperweights or imagined.

Bare Essentials

This room setup is stripped down to the bare essentials: couch, side table, coffee table, armchair, desk for two, bed and night table.

To dress the space up and to set a nice cozy feel, the owners added some framed artwork, buds and a soft rug. It turned out to be the perfect balance between what’s needed and that extra personal touch.

A2 Display: Simple and Personal

Clean design, basic shape, elongated legs. This combination can never grow old. And this is exactly the approach chosen by A2 designer Sara Larsson for the A2 display / cabinet.

Add on top the option to deconstruct the product and adapt it to one’s own aesthetics by combining parts available in various colors and materials, and you are sure to draw the attention of the minimalist like-minded crowd.
