A bit tricky to photograph this framed linen - this resides in our hall and greets us as we walk through the door. Cheery people always smiling. I will have to acknowledge that it was one of my sisters who first picked this up in the charity shop and asked if I might like it. It cost £8 and I first thought is was a print but it is a lovely long piece of fabric beautifully framed, so it must have been greatly appreciated in its time
This is by Bibbi Swahn - a mid century designer from Sweden whose works pops up now and again
This tablecloth was a car boot purchase a couple of years ago - jolly figures again
All this china is used every day and is ideal for the task as it is tough as old boots and withstands the dishwasher
This Egersund china (from Norway) was all bought at different times from local charity shops
I think that these curtains are a Danish design - Scandinavian at least I think - does anyone know?
Simple figures but very effective for all that
I have some other curtains that have a similar design so possibly all by the same person
I haven't really got round to posting more 'modern' designs in our home - I have far ranging/reaching tastes (my undoing) so all peccadilloes are catered for! I have never stuck to a particular decade style or one design type...oh dear perhaps I should have because now our house looks like a minimalist nightmare!! As I kept a lot of stuff from childhood (and beyond) our house reflects a real mix of 'styles' (aka jumble). Bronte is very keen on asking: 'Mum would you happen to have....' and joy of joys if I can ferret around for five minutes and find the very thing that is now 'in fashion' that I have hung on to from several decades ago!
I like bold, strong graphics and I like little, tiny, intricate patterns, I like striking colours and I like ice creams ranges, I like simple but effective and I like complicated and puzzling, I like handmade, homemade and I like mass produced.
Oh dearie, dearie me.....
