Camp Cirrus

July 1, 2010

If you love Scandinavian design and bold brights then the new Swedish design company Camp Cirrus may just be what you need to inspire you and thoughts of redecorating today! Decorating is all I think about lately since we have two flats that look very promising and both are beautiful… if we end up moving into one of them I will be the happiest woman on the planet because then I can decorate it! Weeee! I have so many ideas for my next place. I can’t wait to see where we ultimately end up moving but it looks like September or October I will have a permanent home. Then the things I write about can expand into some of my own home projects which I’m dying to share more of since I’d like to add new features to decor8. Okay… I digress. Now back to Camp Cirrus in Sweden. These bold patterns would be great on a patio or in the kitchen, wouldn’t they? They do look so very Swedish to me…

This is their first collection shown above and it includes textile “jars” for storage, pillow covers, trays, totes and small bags. The pillow covers and bags are hand printed and their design is geared around making beautiful things that are also functional and make people happy. I like that!

    I love this find! These are just the kinds of things I would expect to see here in Scandinavia! I’m so glad to hear that things might work out for you guys!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!! I have thought of you often these last couple weeks as we have gone house hunting. I think we found our place, but I’m having to compromise by giving up outdoor space for those stinkin’ gorgeous herringbone floors!

    Bold and simple patterns of houses, flowers and dots and a restricted colour palette (three shades of red, two shades of blue, three shades of green) – a beautiful combination. I like the way they made a pile of these bright pillows on that antique chair and how they arranged their trays and textile jars with coloured pencil, green aple and Smarties!

    Actually, I think they look more Finnish than Swedish. Finnish – as in, trying to imitate Marimekko. But there’s nothing wrong with being inspired by another brand. I like the blue bag though I wouldn’t wear it. The rest just isn’t my style.

    The simple clean patterns are wonderful but the colors are just divine!
