Rice: Spring 2011

November 17, 2010

I have some super colorful products to share with you today from Rice in Denmark from their Spring 2011 collection. Rice is a household name in Germany, at least in the northern part of the country where I live. You can find it in many small shops and they are best known for their melamine plates, bowls, cups and so on because they are very practical for children but also great for dining outdoors. People in my area are big on using their balcony, patio, garden and winter gardens for eating so as soon as the weather is nice it’s common to take the melamine outside and enjoy the fresh air and something light to eat. I found some things from Rice that float my boat that I thought I’d share with you today, thanks to the lovely Charlotte (founder of Rice) for sending me special access to their image database — I had my pick of imagery to share. Here is the world according to Rice for Spring 2011… a small glimpse of what is to come… COLOR, baby!

There are some nice things in the Spring collection, especially if you take a few of your favorites and bring them into a more subdued home for just a dash of color. I’m a little color shy so Rice is a bold big step for me (I need more neutrals around me in order to calm down and think because my brain is always racing and tons of color seems to excite me even more — so I lean more towards neutrals, black, white, gray, silver and then some color on top). With that said though, I can definitely see using some Rice candle holders in a window, gray and pale blue ceramic bowls stacked in my kitchen on a shelf, a straw crocheted tote in the kitchen to store bottles of water, a key hook in black in the entryway… It’s all about picking things from a collection that work for you and your lifestyle!

    I just wanted to say, and I don’t know why I haven’t until now, but your blog absolutely makes my eyes and mind so happy just about every day. There is so much that inspires me and so many new things I discover with your posts. So just wanting to thank you for the beauty you dole out! I can aspire to surround myself with so many lovely things in my life with a little nudge from you :)

    though I would trip and fall every time …I LOVE THE RUGS ON THE STAIRS!!! so pretty

  • Reply Stacey November 17, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    Oh! So much wonderful color! I tend to go a bit crazy with color in my house (pink walls! blue walls! purple chairs!), so this seems like the perfect line of home decor for me! I deeply love the way the rugs on the stairs look (although I would never dare do something like that in real life, because I would probably slip on them, unless they were all nailed down).

    The rugs and the cushion are my fave! How do we get our hands on these in the States?

    I love Rice! We have a “girls” bathroom and I let me daughter choose the main color scheme and she didn’t even hesitate- bright and cheery and lots of Rice! A very fun choice that we both love!

    I love the candles in the window and that painted staircase is so gorgeous. What beautiful design.

  • Reply ChristinaInAustralia November 18, 2010 at 1:06 am

    I want the rugs and the little candle-holder with the bird. I pray they’ll hit the shops in January, when I’ll be in Germany for 10 days…

    That pink banister is absolutely beautiful!!!!! I use bright colors everywhere, this has given me so many great ideas!!!

    Omigoodness– the rugs on the stars have to be the prettiest, prettiest things I’ve seen in some time. Such a neat, colorful idea. ♥

  • Reply flowing moments November 18, 2010 at 8:56 am

    love those bowls with their different shades, but then come the choice, which ones ? it is very tempting to buy all the shades of blues and mauves !!

  • Reply Katrine K November 18, 2010 at 10:15 am

    I also love the rugs! Would love to have some of them…

  • Reply ana November 18, 2010 at 11:08 am

    I love Rice product lines. It’s hard to find their pieces in portuguese stores, so I normally search for online shops that have the pieces that I want available.

    I vote for RICE opens their own store online, in english please!!!

    The polka dots blankets are to die for.

    Rice is so colorful and happy and young.
    Love your post and your blog.

    I love those ceramic bowls!

  • Reply Miriam November 18, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    I agree with ana-Rice is almost impossible to buy in the US and it is one of my favorites. Huset carries some of their things but none of the carpets/baskets etc. I love Rice!!!

    would like to throw myself on that sofa! what a bright happy setting for a rollicking good time. these colors are fun!
