Everyone following this blog may already know that I am a big fan of bold colorful patterns... so it's not hard to understand why I instantly fell in love with this amazing cutting board by swedish illustrator Anna Pernilla! It's so great, I am using it everyday both as cutting board or as small tray for my breakfast. Talking about breakfast: I've finally won a bid for two small Gustavsberg plates with my life favorite pattern, Berså by Stig Lindberg!
More about playful patterns: I' have recently discovered the wonderful works of London based illustrator Thereza Rowe, and on her blog I've found out about this great free App called Granimator™. It's a collection of hundreds of wallpapers by great illustrators and graphic designers, and the fun part is that you can play with each board, creating different combinations by moving individual elements around. I find this one by Tyra von Zweigbergk particularly genius, it's like playing with wood blocks on your iPad! this is what I came up with:
there are also great patterns on some of the treasures I've found this weekend, soon to be in my GoGoBerlinette shop, like an Arabia of Finland tea set with the Paju pattern, and a GDR soup thermos!
last but not least, today the new issue of FRANKIE magazine is out, and yours truly is featured in it the Homebodies section!! I can't wait to put my hands on a copy, so thrilled!!
(by the way, a nice customer wrote me an email this morning sayin that she recognized the item she has recently bought from me, it was in one of the pictures of GoGoBerlinette's studio :)
