Even if it’s not exactly “Spring” weather where you are, there’s nothing like a fresh breath of Marimekko to get you into a lighter mood! 2014 is actually a big year for Marimekko. Did you know that their signature poppy print, aka “UNIKKO”, celebrates it’s 50th anniversary this year!!
They’ve put together a special mini website to celebrate. Check it out here.
Happy Birthday Unikko! Now, that’s not the only thing to celebrate- Marimekko of course has new and beautiful items for their Spring 2014 collection for us to drool over. Here’s some of my favorite shots from their Spring 2014 look book:
How adorable is this little couch vignette. The stripes give a fun punch, but also note the cool paint DIY idea for the wood stump stool and I can’t resist a lego robot! The fabric is CIRCUS, and the cusions are CIRCUS, COCKTAIL, and OLIIVI
Who wouldn’t love to hang out in this patio, complete with huge oversized graphic print cushions?! The fabrics shown here are POP! (the big print in the foreground that looks like balloons, it will be available week of March 17, 2014), AKANKAALI & KIVET
I’m also in LOVE with this bedroom set up and want to just curl up and take a nice afternoon nap! shown: Bed linens- MELOONI & KURJENPOLVI
and for those interested, the dress is UNI (available soon, but similar style is ROBO).
