Beat Up Creations

Interiors need not always be smart + serious to look good. In fact, it’s often the quirky bits that end up making a space. Let’s say you collect plates and up until now, you have grandmother’s china on the wall displayed using wire hangers. Why not quirk it up a bit and add some humor with your friends Yoda and Gizmo? Think I’m crazy, well I am but that’s not the point. This looks rather fun and you know what, it could be quite good in the right space.

Beat Up Creations

Beat Up Creations alters vintage plates to bring some humor into the house. No need to be an unhappy hipster, right? :)

Psst: She accepts custom orders.

Decorate with Gizmo and Yoda you will.

Mimou + Amelie Hegardt

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

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!
