A PERFECT LOVE FOR IMPERFECTION

I'm crazy about graphic design. I love illustrations, posters, type...and when you combine the three, well...I love it even more. I'm especially fond of things that are a bit quirky or creations with character. Personally I believe it is much harder to create something that is imperfect and more a reflection of your mind, than just creating a pretty picture. I think it takes a lot to express yourself and dare to be imperfect. But I do think that a greater happiness is to be found in the ability to be yourself, how quirky or imperfect that might be, rather than trying to be perfect. /Annika

WINTER COZINESS

 Fabrics & textiles are some of my favorite sources of inspiration. 
I have this thing for textures and I love to explore them and combine to make contrasts. Here's a bit of coziness for today. 
Have a fabulous Wednesday! /Annika
 

MY FOUND FLOWER CORNER

My little flower table is pretty much a mix of anything I have found and turned into something useful. The table is an old garden table with a really worn and chipped paint. I have covered it with a piece of left over floor protector from Ikea. This makes it easier to clean and I can still enjoy the old looking garden table. The shelving is made from old wine crates which I have painted. Working as a florist you get access to a lot of things that are reusable as we often get flowers delivered in pots or boxes, but we then replant them and are left with perfectly functioning containers etc. The two little metal baskets are former candle packaging and perfect for storing things. 
 
The sign is a recent project, made from an old shelf and I just love the simple look and feel it gives my little flower corner. My ribbon wall is a very good example of how collecting things can turn into something fun and decorative. I took apart an old wine rack and used all the bars for the ribbons. They have little holes in them from the wooden plugs that held the rack together, perfect for hanging on hooks. /Sussi
 
Have a look at Fabriken for more great recycling projects.
 
 
 
 

KNIT TO KEEP WARM

I hope you all had a great New Year. I't a beautiful morning today, frosty trees and a pink and blue sky. It is still quite cold here but I have to say that I'm not yet longing for spring. I love winter, its a season that has to be enjoyed as much as any other....especially when we have snow.
 
My sister haven't had any trouble keeping warm though. She's been knitting these beautiful big pillows:) One being 60 x 60 cm and the other one slightly smaller. She used three different treads for each pillow, one with a fluffy texture, giving it a softer look. The old lamp also got a make-over and now has a brand new knitted shade. /Annika
 
 
 

HAPPY NEW YEAR

New Year is here and this is our last post for 2010. We are looking forward to a very creative 2011 (we do have a lot of ideas in mind) and to share this with you. We want to thank you again for all the beautiful feedback you have given us.
We are going to end this year with some pictures of our New Years table decoration. We have chosen a very natural and cozy look, with a bit of silver and glitter and materials like yarn, lace, fur and ribbons. We are going to have a couple of center pieces made from old baking molds. They are perfect for holding a candle and ornaments.
 
We wish you all a Happy New Year...see you soon!
Sussi & Annika
