Bathroom insiration | Scandinavian designers for Korean Lagom

Looking at the site of Swedish Note Design studio I came across pictures of Lagom Bath, a Korean bathroom manufacturer who had asked the studio to design one of their bathrooms. In Korea you buy pre-designed bathrooms and next to Note design Studio also Norm architects and Lotta Agaton designed one of the new and minimalistic bathrooms.

I thought the different moodboards are real eye candy and especially love the one above, I am all into this colour scene at the moment and the hint of brow gives it a special touch. The bathroom elements are designed for smaller spaces and would fit my own tiny bathroom perfectly. The first bathroom below is designed by Lotta Agaton who is also responsible for the styling of the other bathroom elements.

Dialogue | A book by Berlin based Our Food stories and Frama

What Nora, who works as a (food-)stylist and photographer Laura of the wonderful Our Food stories and myself have in common is probably our love for the beautiful Frama and I was really happy when I won their book 'Dialogue' through a competition at Only Deco love. Our Food stories started as a blog while Laura was feeling unwell due to food-allergies, and they started cooking and making new recipes in order to as they say, create delicious gluten free cake recipes that taste as good as a normal cake.

After meeting Niels Strøyer Christophsen, the founder of Frama Cph some years ago after discovering the ceramics from Frama. Niels had the idea to create a book together with inspirational interviews, interior design photos from Frama's projects and gluten-free recipes created and photographed by Our Food stories.

For the launch of their book they organised a special dinner at their studio in Berlin, where occasionally they also organise beautiful gatherings. Eye catcher of the studio, if there isn't an amazing flower or pampas grass installation above the table as seen in the pictures further in this post, must be the beautiful black Frama kitchen. I am in love with their studio and hope to find the time to make one of their recipes and have a taste of the delicious looking cakes soon. Dialogue is available in selected bookstores or online via the Frama shop

Mimic Mirror by Muuto

In yesterday's post I talked about the importance of sharable pictures, meaning pictures any design lover is willing to share on their social media or blog. I have to admit that even if I do love a company and their new chair, table or accessory, if the pictures are not triggering my imagination or show a setting I really can't appreciate or is just plain boring they will not make it to the blog. As an interior design blogger for ten years I believe I know best what my readers like to see and following my own style has always been a good starting point of what to show and what not.

I am definitely a lover of all things raw, being it unfinished concrete, metal, abandoned buildings or walls with amazing dark lived patina's. I think the combination of the raw and modern design pieces is what makes things look interesting at home, at least to me it is.

Designed in the three colours of Nude, Midnight Blue and Grey, the new Mimic Mirror by Muuto is designed to co-exist in harmony with the space in which it is placed, complementing the atmosphere of the room through its unique look. Mimic mirror is designed by Parisian Normal Studio. More info at Muuto
