Home is where the garden is

Hello all you lovely people, hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Do you Love green ? Well, then shout if from your rooftop! literally! Plants are not making the new interiors - but 'ARE' the new interiors. 
Your grandma's verandah is suddenly the most 'in'-thing and if you live in an apartment, don't dismay soon you will be able to buy a wall to plant your plants in.

Some beautiful green projects I spotted at the Salone 13 in Milan,







Can't get enuf of the green, check out the latest project by Florama

Product Designer - Meike Harde

I saw Meike Harde design for the first time at the Heimtextil Fair in Frankfurt this year and I was instantly drawn to her sense of simplicity, function and use of colors.

 Zieharsofika shows new methods of upholstery construction, aiming to create a stiff cushion from a flat foam mat. Beautiful!


The lights Lichtschlucker work are fantastic lights made of disposable plastic cups!

Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2013 - VITRA

Salone Internazionale del Mobile, what a fair ! 
It's my second year at this fair in Milan and it continues to amaze and inspire me. 
The next posts on this blog will be all about the fair and the super creative designer areas of Lambrate and Tortorna.

I start with VITRA

One cannot ignore the trend of outside spaces coming inside. Ingenious plant holders, green walls and inside verandas are the new modern interiors. Colors like green and petrol give spaces freshness and a sense of space. Back to VITRA and their new collection







Loved the way they had made their booth walls by simply stacking white storage boxes 
 



Have a fantastic weekend and more from Salone 13 and me on Monday!
