Inspired by Finnish weather and shoreline, talented designer  Aino-Maija Metsola created watercolor and ink illustrations for a the Marimekko collection, Weather Diary. And it’s so beautiful! Majestic Nordic nature, rain showers,  crisp cool days, and grass fields turning golden brown in the gentle warmth of late autumn – That’s what you’ll find on the latest tea towels, plates, bowls and cups of the Finnish brand.

Have a look at this great video showing the new collection.
Some words from Aino-Maija Metsola about weather: “I like many kinds of weather, including rain and wind. Finding yourself in thick fog or a thunderstorm can also be a surreal experience. Of course, I’m not a big fan of unrelenting rain. Changes in weather are also inspiring if, like me, you’ve learned to dress according to the weather by living on an island. I don’t particularly dislike any weather, except perhaps too warm and drizzly winter weather. Every shower, drizzle or cloudburst is unique and beautiful in its own way. When it’s raining, everything seems to stop for a moment, which I enjoy somehow.”
