Bologna, also known as “la cittá rossa” – the red city – referring to the colors of the buildings but also to the political preference of many bolognesi. The earthy red is beautiful and present everywhere, from the color of the bricks to the color of the terrazzo on the pavements. I love the patterns that is created in terrazzo mixing stones in various sizes and colors with colored cement. We start to see more and more terrazzo in interiors and furniture. My favourite are these tables by Frama in Copenhagen. http://www.framacph.com
I think we will see a lot more of terrazzo to come, to quote the queen of swedish design blogs Lotta Agaton “terrazzo is the new Carrara”.
Love the color range of these metal trays from Ferm Living.
I can warmly recommend the book about Scholten & Baijings, the masters of gradients, fadings and neon accents. I really like that they are showing so much of their creative process. This book is a must for every CMF designer!
The ISBN is 9780714868714 if you want to buy the book.
Christmas is getting closer and I can’t wait to get started to decorate at home. I want to keep it simple and my main decoration is flowers, greenery and lighting off course.
I love the Burgundy red color and I’m thinking of combining it with a faded pink and silver green.
I see a lot of dark reds in shades of wine. Blurry Burgundy or faded Marsala.
Marsala was selected the color of the year 2015 by Pantone.
