The fabric for our kitchen window just arrived today, and it's fun, fresh and GREEN!
This fabric is from a new collection by British Sanderson, and I have to admit that it's totally reminding me of Josef Frank (an old "Swedish" hero).
We're going to have roman blinds made (like below), and I think they'll really complement the rest of the decor.
We'll also be expanding the kitchen this spring to build a banquette (seating) much like the image below, but with a U-shape. We'll be filling it with loads of colorful fabrics, and a fun geometric patterned cover. (haven't decided which one yet)

I'm working on the SS12 issue of our inspiration magazine, base, and this is my current mood board. (which I've been working on forever. Our new coordinator came in like a breath of fresh air (she started this Monday), and cleaned up my office AND fixed the mood board. Nedless to say, she's brilliant! And I'm SUPER happy!! ;))
Do you have anything exciting planned out for the weekend?

Six nuances to be precise.
Last week we launched Color of the Year for the Norwegian market in Fargerike.
The event was divided in three parts, were we first introduced these six nuances:
Stram Militær FR1112
Army green is hot like never before..
It's young, it's fresh and it's perfect for color blocking and punches of color
Emerald green - glamorous, elegant and fabulous
Imagine the green in the bottle of the old glass coca cola bottles. This is that color. Perfect, dreamy and neutral.
Perfect for both glamorous and rustic interiors, a light green with elements of blue. To DIE for paired with gold.
A French green, a true neutral, almost like beige. Except is's green. Very easy to work with.
We paired up with the fabulous Kristin Hellberg from the renowned French trend agency Nelly Rodi to present the main trends for 2012 - green was present in all of them.
LOVED her shoes - D'Squard and not for whimps ;)
In the installations we did a Norwegian interpretation of the global trends:
Trend 1: Barbarchaics
key words: raw, natural, pure
Trend 2: Essentualists
keywords: Scandinavian, simple, quality
Trend 3: Worldists
keywords: world citizen, energetic, eclectic, social
Trend 4: The Glamazones
Key words: Futuristic, amazing, feminine, dynamic, experimental
So what do you think about green?
Love it? Leave it?
