As you know I really like creating new corners and stills at home, that’s why I loved teaming up with Eitil Thorén of Peytil for this blogpost. The creative process of styling with books, art and the things we have at home already, is what I love most. I find it really relaxing and I always love taking a closer look at the new scenery created the days after.
I might change an object, add something new, or take something out, it is an ongoing process that I find really satisfying and one of the main reasons I started this blog. For those who don’t know my story, I wanted to find a place to show my images of the stills I created at home to my friends. Something I still enjoy and one of the main reasons why I love to work with different artists and brands.
Growing up in Stockholm in a family of artists, his mother is a sculptor and his father a painter, Eitil Thorén was encouraged from an early age to experiment and follow his path. Starting his creative proces owning a fashion brand together with his older brother at the age of 21, something that after a few years he saw as restrictive and longed for something without rules or limitations. Wanting to have the freedom to choose when, where and how to work and also wanting to paint. He rented a studio and invested in a large format inkjet printer and started Peytil, named after the nickname he had as a child.
A simple black line
“I named my project Peytil he says, because that was my nickname as child. I have a minimalistic approach to art and design and I love the spontaneous expression of a simple black line. I guess that’s my Scandinavian legacy. Using high quality papers and printing methods, to ensure long lasting beauty and value is as important as the art itself for me. I believe in quality and craftsmanship.
On his website you will find a selection of work from various guest artist including Eitil’s own. What I also really loved is how different prints are shown in a few Gallery walls making it really easy to select the right prints for a gallery wall at home. I placed the prints on my bench and styled them with my most read books. Pretty sure they will fit the wall behind my coat rack as well later date.
