When my dear friend Charlotee from RICE in Denmark sent me previews of her new line for Fall/Winter, I knew I had to share her bright, colorful creations. I love the styling, it’s my favorite styling I’ve seen for RICE yet and I love how fresh and happy everything looks. This is my absolute favorite photo shown below from their upcoming catalog – I adore this old wooden window and how sweetly everything is arranged. Gorgeous!
In addition to RICE, Charlotte is also the lady behind the beautiful new book, Happy Home. You may recall my book review HERE. Her style is definitely on trend being one of the four big interiors trends you’ll see this Fall/Winter.
I love these colorful plastic bags for packing lunches with the dots. And who doesn’t love dots?
Tea towels with pompom fringe make any kitchen feel a little more playful, don’t you think?
These hooks are gorgeous!
I love that in addition to their melamine range, RICE is using more and more pottery. I think it looks so nice.
These bowls are so cute and I love that they are melamine because then you can prepare a mixed salad in a big plastic bag or large tupperware bowl, then go to the park and pull out these adorable bowls and serve your salad without worrying about anything getting broken – yet not sacrificing on style or resorting to paper or plastic bowls from the supermarket (which I really dislike!). I also think melamine is super practical with children for soups and cereals. Although honestly, I’d eat my morning muesli out of these bowls – no problem. They are cheerful!
These plates are super cute and fun!
I REALLY like these bento box-style containers shown above. Such a great way to pack a lunch without having to bring a bunch of little containers.
Don’t you love these colors? Any favorite products that you spot? See the entire catalog here.
Beautiful things, Charlotte – congrats on your new line and your beautiful book and its success all over the world!
I really love to shop online. I still adore shopping in person still, I’m not one of those people who only shop online now because I do love a good browse and to be inspired by a lovely shop. Plus, I find interacting with products in person so beneficial. Yet, I find equal value in online shopping and find myself doing it more and more lately as it’s also quite an efficient thing to do when your schedule is full enough as my always seems to be. Are you a fan of online shopping or in-person? I guess what I’m wondering is do you prefer one over the other? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this! I was recently contacted by Rigby & Mac in England and fell in love with thier sweet online shop. They have lots of very sweet gifts and fun things I’d not seen elsewhere before, which is rare because sometimes I believe I’ve seen it all with being online so much pinning and blogging and reviewing products. It’s always such a lovely moment when you stumble upon totally fresh finds, isn’t it?
See any favorite gifts from my selections above?

While I’m on the subject of imm, I thought I’d highlight another brand I came across only not at the fair — they had some of their products there but it was only after reading Gudy’s lovely blog the other day that I discovered the gorgeous Gubi.
Based in Copenhagen’s docklands, Gubi is a Danish design studio which occupies an expansive loft space that was once a tobacco factory. Founded in 1967, Gubi has become quite an impressive company with everything from lighting to seating and beyond.
Regarding their inspiration they tell us their collections are about, “Chasing forgotten icons… Each piece is exquisite in its own right with a story to tell, capturing a fleeting moment in history which remains relevant to this day. Our uncanny ability to recognise diamonds in the rough along with original ideas and inspirations have also resulted in a unique collection of exciting new designs worth coveting.” You can really see this in each of their inspiring creations.
I am particularly fond of their impressive collection of lighting and tables. I’m so attracted to copper in particular – it’s been on my radar since I was at Merci (shop tour here by Jillian) in Paris this time last year and spotted copper combined with mint, orange, peach and black on one of their racks where they keep their beautiful clothing for women. Remember this post? That floor kicked off the whole obsession with this color palette for me.
Are you having a nice day? Still gray here but I have good music on and a candle from Muji that smells like a burning fire with a cup of lavender earl grey tea on my desk so I’m making it work. :)
