How has your Summer been! Yesterday evening I came back from Denmark where I attended a design tour organised by two Copenhagen based brands and it is my first day home again after travelling to different places this last weeks. It’s raining and a bit grey and I already miss Summer, don’t you, where have you been… did you travel or did you stayed at home during our fantastic north European Summer?
I travelled to Spain for a w/ Style assignment and went back to Sardinia after missing the island for many years. I even brought some small crafted items back home with me as I think it is a great way to remember the places you visited and prolong the Summer vibe you get into after travelling. Handmade items with a natural vibe can soften our dark winters and bring back the Summer feeling at home.
Sardinia is known for its weaving techniques and traditional baskets, I have a beautiful old family one I brought home years ago. I regularly also show you the work founders of Couleur Locale bring back from their own travels around the world including several baskets where traditional weaving techniques are used to create intricately patterns, but also ceramic, lamps and linen items for your home. Here is a small impression of different things to keep the Summer vibe alive, many more can be found online at Couleur Locale or visit their stores in both Antwerp and Knokke.
