Spring’s hot colors?
Vivacious Reds, Pinks, Magentas…

Comments Off 11 March 2011

Think about the colors you see on a sunny spring day…so clear, crisp, vibrant, and such a welcome contrast to the stark greys that surround us throughout winter. So when you’re sprucing up for spring indoors, forget soft pastels and turn to some of this season’s hottest new fabrics and wallcoverings in vivacious reds, hot pinks, and magnificent magentas.

Pillow Parade! Ekofabrik Banknote Pillows

1 Comment 07 March 2011

Kim Johnson is at it again and her imagination knows no bounds! Previously we brought you her whimsical chic pillows made with 100% recycled plastic bottle felt, vintage fabrics, recycled buttons and felted old sweaters. Then we showcased her modern prints in Scandinavian retro style.

Her new pillows are a definite design detour from her past creations. “I collected paper money from around the world when I was a kid. I recently came across them and thought that the beautiful images on the vintage money would look great on pillows, especially now, since most countries have turned to the Euro.”

Clever, clever girl! The pillows are just magnificent and unlike any we’ve ever seen…
