Pink

So it is time for pink again, pale pink – a colour that goes very well with other (contrast) colours. Right now I use it a lot together with white or black, occasionally with light & dark grey too. Not only to clothes, actually. I have a very soft padded bedspread in the bedroom AND yes, believe it or not, but it happens to be that it too is  combined with dark grey duvet cover. I must have lack of imagination, so it seems.

Daily inspiration, past

A combination of the past but in the present day – could that be a proper description of this styling, maybe. With old-fashioned wallpaper, the worn wooden floor, antique headboard, bed textiles & a patterned carpet, well then you get this expression. Really nice!

Daily inspiration, rug

It’s nice with open spaces so that the whole environment comes to its right. If you then can have carpets on display easily visible on durable wood floors, well, then, happiness is complete. Especially if it’s handmade fine carpets with nice colour & shape. Especially if it’s handmade fine carpets with nice colour & shape – well selected to fit on the surface & in the room.

Oriental dreams

I’m dreaming about oriental rugs – Kelim, Persian, Pakistani, Afghan, etc. The hand knotted rugs with specific oriental patterns & colours. It has to be authentic & genuine too. Why on earth would you bother, if not. Those with plastic back  & in synthetic material might look good nowadays but it’s the feeling of the pure material, the ancient craftsmanship, the origin & the history. That’s powerful! It’s always interesting & impressive with talent. Something to cherish when you realise that it’s not just any pattern but a solid foundation of ​​culture as well as storytelling, through a craft. Those aesthetically striking colour combinations that appeals & materials that last a lifetime, at least. Not to forget, how easy & smooth these rugs melt into any environment. They do fit almost everywhere. So yep, oriental is my thing right now.

I drove my son the other day to a place where he was to meet someone for a quick catch-up. We went for a walk after, on the main street & just stumbled over a big shop with fantastic handmade rugs, from all over the world. I could have stayed there for hours & just continued to listen to the shop owner’s extreme competence about these beautiful objects. Desirable & precious oriental rugs to dream about 🙂
