Eyecandy on a Monday …

Hope you will all have a great week, wanted to kick it off with these side tables designed by Luca Nichetto for Verreum. The name is Bon Bon, and who would disagree? Love the silvered glass-effect, which started really showing up last year, and which we will see much more of in the future. Who can resist a little shine?

Something for the weekend …

… and something blue. St. Pauls Blue to be exact, a new color developed by Jotun in collaboration with Frama, the Danish showroom & Gallery space is an evolving platform of curated ideas that encompasses custom made objects, interior design, decorative products and conceptual ideas. When they recently planned to renovate their space they sought to develop a unique color which would symbolize their style and values. Thus began  a creative collaboration with Jotun, which culminated in St. Pauls Blue, named after the pharmacy that had inhabited their showroom space earlier.
JotunFramaStPaulsBlueThe color has historical references, but also feels decidedly modern and urban.
JotunFramaStPaulsBlueJotunFramaStPaulsBlueThe color is now also available at Jotun retailers, and the full name is LADY 5030 St. Pauls Blue.

I feel an urge to paint my walls …
LadyBalance2024SensesJotun LADY just released their Spring Summer Collection for 2015, styled by the inimitable styling duo Kråkvik &
D´Orazio, and photographed by Siren Lauvdal. I really like the crisp white bed linen against this powdery pinkish hue. The head board is painted with Jotun LADY Supreme Finish 2024 Senses, while the wall is painted the same colour, but with Jotun LADY Balance.

The same color has been used on both the kitchen cabinets and the walls; LADY 7163 Minty Breeze – but the paint used on the cabinets is Supreme Finish, while the wall is covered with LADY Balance. The simple shelves to the left in the picture are by Frama, and you can find them at Kråkvik & D´Orazio´s store in Rathkes gate 4 in Oslo; Kollekted By.

The name of the lamps? Say my name

SaymynameNorthernLightingI want this lamp. It is both beautiful and subtle, and I love the color of the Venetian glass. So expressive. The images are styled by Per Olav Sølvberg and photographed by Kristofer Johnsson.

Just had to share with you some recent new design by some very interesting Norwegian designers. They have all contributed to Magnor Glassworks latest range.

Beautiful cutlery from Broste

My love for my Skaugum cutlery is a lasting affair, and I am not planning on changing it anytime soon, however I might consider mixing it up a bit with Broste Copenhagens new cutlery in Rose Gold, Black, Full Mirror and Full Satin. Have a look:

BrosteCopenhagen1Beautiful contrast between the easy elegance of the Rose Gold and the more rustic plates and the soft linen napkin. 
BrosteCopenhagen2BrosteCopenhagen3Black and white …
BrosteCopenhagen5Are we seeing a return of stainless steel and silver? Watch this space …

Helsinki is one of my favorite cities, and if you have never been there you have something to look forward to. Lots of design history of course – just think of Alvar Aalto and his legacy, but also an exciting design district which showcases lots of great fashion, interior and product design. I am a big fan of Joanna Laajisto, who is an interior architect and designer behind a number of exciting projects. One of her latest projects is Finlandia Caviar,  a mecca for caviar and oyster lovers by the waterfront market square in Helsinki.

FinlandiaCaviar10FinlandiaCaviar4FinlandiaCaviar6I love the simplicity and the freshness of the look of this shop and restaurant concept – just look at the pop of bright blue against the subdued color scheme.
FinlandiaCaviarFinlandiaCaviar8FinlandiaCaviar9You can either choose to sit down and enjoy the caviar and/or oysters on the spot accompanied by champagne or vodka, or purchase some to take home.
FinlandiaCaviar2FinlandiaCaviar11Finlandia Caviar is located at Eteläranta 20 in Helsinki.

Northern Lighting goes unplugged!

The Norwegian lighting company Northern Lighting has just launched an entirely new series called Unplugged, providing mood-enhancing alternative to electric lighting. A great little series which will be officially launched at Stockholm Furniture Fair next week. Enjoy!

IrisNorthernLightingI love the simplicity of Iris, designed by Studio Dreimann. The material is cast iron.
FlameNorthernLightingFlame moves in an entirely different direction; a glossy and warm exterior seem to embrace the candle, Flame is made of cast iron and steel. Choose between gold or rose gold finish. Design by Gridy.
BrickNorthernLightingThe extremely talented duo Domaas Høgh are the designers behind Brick, which is made of steel. Love the mint, powder pink and white finish.
FyrNorthernLightingVibeke Skar´s Fyr made of blown glass is simple and sculptural. Choose between Smoked Grey and Burnt Orange – or choose both. They are really good together.
ObliqueNorthernLightingRudi Wulff is the designer behind Oblique, a both playful and colorful tealight holder made of silicone and aluminium.

All images are styled by Per Olav Sølvberg and photographed by Kristofer Johnsson.

Danske Please Wait To Be Seated lanserer nå sin første lampe, The Planet Lamp, som du ifølge designeren Mette Schelde kan samhandle med fordi du kan flytte rundt på platene for å skape et helt eget uttrykk. Lyset er indirekte og gir et mykt lys mot veggen. Det sier kanskje seg selv at dette ikke akkurat er en leselampe, dette dreier seg om stemningsbelysning – nesten som et lite kunstverk på veggen. Lampen er tilgjengelig i fargene indian red, green og plum, prisen er DKK 4979.
PlanetLamp1PlanetLamp4Ved å flytte på platene endrer lampens uttrykk seg.

Norsk design: LYSENDE & UNIKT

Norske Erica Marley lager lamper av materialer hun finner på loppemarkeder og i bruktbutikker, og resultatet er enkle, vakre og unike designobjekter laget av naturlige kvalitetsmaterialer som marmor, metall, skinn og tre. Se bare her:
EricaMarleyIngen lamper helt like, og alle er nummerert og signert – de koster mellom kr 2000 og kr 3500 – perfekt julegave?
EricaMarley5Selv sier Erica: “Jeg elsker de små skjønnhetsfeilene i materialene. Det er så vakkert når man kan se at noe har vært i bruk og gitt glede gjennom flere år”.
EricaMarley1Vakkert, unikt OG miljøvennlig – what´s not to like?
