Contrast

I have had this wreath in mind for a quite a while now and since the exciting Tuesdays theme at Fabriken is contrasts, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally make it.
I do think the contrasts in life are what makes us think, feel and force us to make decisions...and from a creative perspective, thinking in contrast is what makes us use materials and colors differently and use combination that originally might not have suited each other. Without contrast the word challenge wouldn’t exist – We love contrasts (and challenges)...thank you, Fabriken for a great Tuesday theme. /Sussi

 

leaves of green

I have always thought that the beauty of a material is in its structure rather than the color. Any color is pretty much attainable in any material, but what gives it origin and history is the structure. The structure will tell you about the process it has gone through to attain its appearance.

Combining different material can have a gorgeous effect when decorating your home. One color that is easily accepted in most materials is green, probably because green gives us a feeling of growth and life. It is also a color that never seems to go out of style, maybe just because we are always surrounded by it through nature and therefore see it as a very natural element in our lives. /Annika

 
 

In our store you'll find the green retro collection. The coffee and tea tin can be bought as a set or separately. This makes perfect for a Christmas present or as a hostess gift.

tea for two

 As my sister mentioned in a previous post, I like to store dried flowers. It is fascinating to experience a flower take on a new life, when it is actually suppose to be buried in the compost. The color scale of the hydrangeas in these pictures is beyond comparison. Here paired with the latest of my sister’s flea marked finds, a set of teacups, they are the perfect match.
A nice little idea for setting the table when having people over for tea/coffee is using an old note sheet as table mat. These can also be found at flea markets. It adds to the charm when using vintage china.

Later I will show you how I also use my dried hydrangeas....which are one of my favorite flowers. You’ll soon learn that I have quite a few favorites. Maybe an occupational hazard of being a florist /Sussi

vintage type and turquoise colors

Recently I started collecting retro/vintage typewriters. Maybe it's not so much a collection but more a collection to be...since I only have two of them. Then again...since it's all about collecting you would actually have to start out with only one and work your way up. So I'll call mine a collection...i like the sound of it. The thing about being a collector is that you apply rules to the way you collect your objects. In this case I'm not interested in just any typewriter, nor does it have to be expensive. It simply has to speak to me. The first typewriter I found was turquoise and I payed 0,5 euro for it. It had my name typed all over it.
 
 
 
So today I urge you all to start collecting something that speaks to you. Whether it may be old books with great vintage type or as my sister does so well...she stores dried flowers for decoration and color inspirations. /Annika
 

inspiration from all corners of the world.

It is easy to get caught up in the blogosphere. Even more easy to loose track of time when searching for inspiration and the way that one post will send you around the world to another great piece of inspiration...hours will fly by.
Today I went by the blog Helt Enkelt (beautiful blog) by Anna-Malin and she had a post on some great posters she bought from Canada, by Eva Juliet. Of couse I then had to check out Eva Juliet's amazing graphic art, just to realise I'd already been there. My eye had caught her vintage poster collection earlier this week in the Gifted Magazine by Creature Comforts. And as I have a weak spot for graphic art, especially when its this beautiful, I just have to share it with you. Here are some of my faves:

Gifted Magazine is the only holiday magazine and gift guide you'll need. You'll find anything from wrapping tips and ideas to great gift suggestion. You might not be able to get all of it here in Scandinavia, but it will definitly spark your list of gift ideas. /Annika
