Mimou + Amelie Hegardt

August 11, 2010

Would you love to see some beautiful new products today from Sweden? Why, of course you would! The very kind Helena from Room and Serve wrote in to tell me about the new collection from Mimou. You can find bed linens, wallpaper, hand-crafted furniture and hand printed pillows.

Mimou + Amelie Hegardt

Mimou worked with Swedish illustrator Amelie Hegardt who is known for her bleeding ink silhouettes and watercolors as well as her delicate, timeless and evocative style. Her work has been translated into beautiful things for the home while also reflecting the classic Mimou style that the brand is known for.

I love the bright colors against the white background and how fresh and illustrative these prints are — the sketchy watercolors are really in right now and look great! The black and white combos look striking and very inviting and warm. The grays and browns are sensual and relaxing. What a stylish and very forward collection!

    Stop it already! So, up until two-thirds of the way down my favourites were all the blues: the fresh blooms, the lampshades, the vases. Then, bang! that gorgeous orange anglepoise pops up. I love a good hit of orange and this lamp is perfecto.

    it’s so fascinating to see wallpaper using artwork in repeating patterns like this….like the wall paper becomes an art itself! love that!

    Just came back from Sweden after visiting my parents. I was, as always, amazed at all the great new and innovative design ideas. Wish I could import it all!!

    Everything is so beautiful. My favorite has to be the butterfly print though.

    I love anything from Sweden. My son lives there and he is always sending me pictures of new furniture that he buys. The SWEDS are so talented.

    I am freaking out over those last two photos! I love that turquoise cabinet and the industrial feel of the table. That is exactly what I have imagined in my mind, but didn’t have an image to go with it. Definitely going in my new house inspiration folder! Thanks so much!

    I love the watercolour wallpaper and the vase with half dried flowers. Beautiful set of watercolour flowers on cushions combined with the graphic pattern of the duvet.
