During my visit to Maison et Objet I saw a lot of vivid colours, colorful accents, bold patterns, and bright prints. Here’s a round up of some brands whose designs turn up the vibrant colour volume for fall and winter.
(Please note that some photos may be of less quality as they were taken with my phone due to the fact that photographing was officially prohibited. However, I personally got permission from the featured exhibitors to take these pictures)
La Cerise sur le gâteau
We can always trust on la cerise sur le gateau to come up with another quirky or fun design for their tea towels, bedding and pillows. Their new collection entails: neon dots, photographing Olga, french kiss, childlike doodles of funny guys and houses, and a contemporary interpretation of toile de jouy in pink and grey. (available in a variety of Dutch (web)shops)
I love Mariska Meijers designs, and whenever I’m in Amsterdam I always try to drop by to see what’s new in her store. Her new collection ‘Jungle Fever’ was inspired by neon lights and is more graphic and abstract than her earlier work. I instantly fell in love with her wall paper, which is very bold, but also very city chic.
Miho has been a major hit the past year with its deer heads and bird houses. I could hardly flip open a home decor magazine without seeing the MDF do-it-yourself accessories sprucing up a wall. It looks like their popularity isn’t a flash in the pan. (available at a variety of Dutch (web)shops)
Chhatwal & Jonsson
I’ve got a thing for ikat patterns so I was very taken by the designs of Cchatwal & Jonsson. Their inspiration is India’s decorative heritage with a Scandinavian sense of colours and style.
Fabrics and accessories from Marimekko are and will always be colorful. And still they stay innovative and manage to surprise us with something new.
New in the pantone universe collection are the gift boxes with 4 cups, the tray table, and the tea set. Like we are used of Pantone, they come in the pantone colour of your choice.
Dutch brand HK Living stays true to their reputation: ethnic chic with an industrial vibe. They combine greys and neutrals with blue hues and neon pink, but I also saw pops of purple, green and orange.
