It's the season of working with ceramics again. The course is on every Monday evening. After the summer vacation it was great to start with clay again. This autumn I want to try some new colors and because I'm a great fan of Danish style I chose white and blue.I will continue with my pastel circus too but it is always great to play with new things.
Many years ago I lived in Copenhagen for a few months. That time changed my style of decorating home. I was amazed of Danish people's homes. Families kept their curtains open even in the evenings. You could take a walk and pass by so many living rooms where people were eating, drinkin, smoking happily together. In Finland we tend to close curtains in the evenings to keep our privacy...well danes definitely didn't mind the audience.
Danish homes were so cosy and colorful. You could see person's life all over the home. Memories of the past, design, flea market finds, some practical things - all together in eclectic harmony. One thing common I noticed was blue and white porcelain. Some of them were chinese some of them were Danish design like Royal Copenhagen.
I can say that Danish style has been my inspiration for many years by now. I decided to combain two my favorite things in my new ceramics. Blue and white with rusty and frayed. So I came up with these items - a small bowl and very small spoon. What do you think about them? I'm very happy about them and will do more of them.
I have planned to build a webshop and I'm going to sell my ceramics, photos, paintings and maybe even some vintage items there. I had planned that my shop would open in early autumn but time flies so fast that I hope to open it in November. I hope to see you there ! But I will tell you more when I get it a bit more ready :)
So I think a very tiny Danish lives inside of me...because I love to keep curtains open - we don't have curtains, haha - and I don't mind if someone sees us eating our dinner and talking about daily matters. I also love to have eclectic style at my home.
How about you?
I will turn myself now towards sofa with pile of old design and decoration magazines. I hope you enjoy of this lazy day and hope you have a great week ahead!
