Etnic vibes in a black and white interior | Sponsor spotlight

The Hardoy butterfly chair has been around since 1938. And with the black frame and white cover in cotton or linen I can easily see this iconic chair in my own interior. At this time of the year, when lots of sun comes into my home it feels all light and sunny. And I love to add some natural elements next to the black and white colour scene. 

The owners of Couleur Locale love to travel and search for beautiful items all over the world. In Senegal they fell in love with these authentic wooden gourds, when they found them at a local market. For years they were used in the bush in the kitchen. Handmade, some cracked and reconnected with iron plates, each one is unique and has it's own story.

If you decorate your home with black and white accessories like me, you might love the graphic pillows from Mali, and soon there will be some brand new black ceramics available at the webstore. Adding some natural elements such as wood and bamboo will add a soft touch to your home and at Couleur Locale you will find many of my personal favourites.

Love the pictures you posted with the gray chair and they are lovely! I think gray would be a good choice too, especially if you "live" in that room. I'm sure whatever you decide will look beautiful:

Helt fantastiskt fina foton :) jag hoppas ni har bättre väder än här i GBG, sommaren tog tillfälligt avbrott tyvärr. Och på midsommar var vi på Amundön MEN det var kallt och blåsigt som attans...ingen höjdare haha

Ny post ute....underbara sommarsovrum att drömma om :)

Ha en härlig fortsatt vecka.

LOVE Maria at inredningsvis - inredning it's, Swedish for decor :)

What a beautiful chair, Butterfly Chair.
I found it also with leather cover instead of white canvas.
The leather cover is the original version of the first Butterfly Chair series made in 1938 by Ferrari-Hardoy in Buenos Aires. I thought that might be an interesting fact to know. Very beautiful blog with great pjhotographs, by the way. Congrats !
