    New from Mini Moderns

    by  • Wednesday, January 15, 2014 • Uncategorized • 5 Comments

    Inspired by the bleak beauty of Dungeness and the esoteric structures that populate the shingle beach in Kent, Mini Moderns have launched a new wallpaper design. I stumbled across the area on a road trip around the south east coast and was amazed by it’s scattered collection of dwellings, corrugated structures, the power plant and deserted boats. The landscape is very popular among artists and Mini Moderns have just finished converting an old railway carriage and managed to knock up a new wallpaper design, while they were there…

What do you think? Have you been to Dungeness?

    Colour combo crush: Neon & Grey

    I’ve been stuck in a monochrome mood for a while now. My flat is almost devoid of any colour. Black, white, grey and natural wood are so easy to live with. I like the clean, Scandi feel and it’s easy to mix vintage pieces with new. Yes, it’s pretty safe and sometimes not very cheery and whenever I’m given a homey gift that might err on the side of colour caution, I have a mini freak out inside. (how’s that gonna fit in with my carefully crafted, muted scheme!?) But now that it’s grey and gloomy outside, I’m tempted to relax a little and embrace a touch of colour into my life/flat. What do you think of this colour combo?

    A tiny touch of neon can instantly make a room feel more lively. Fortunately, the way to work this trend isn’t full-on 80′s and garish. Apply it with a little restraint by adding just one piece in a room of otherwise neutral shades. I think I could almost live with that.
