I am not one to have lots of bold patterns in my décor, but Marimekko’s have a special place in my heart. I’ve loved their Unikko print for as long as I remember! The flowery motif gets reinvented with new colors regularly and, for its latest home collection, the Finnish design house chose a palette of earthy hues, with lovely shades of burnt orange, brown and muted red. In the images below, shared during a recent press event, you can see the latest assortment beautifully styled with brass and wooden elements, and lots of natural textures. Warm, organic, modern but slightly retro, too… It is gorgeous!

Here’s an interesting fact about the famous Unikko pattern:
“Marimekko’s classic poppy print Unikko was born in 1964 after Armi Ratia, company’s founder, had announced that Marimekko would never print a flower pattern. Designer Maija Isola refused to obey Armi’s orders and created an entire series of floral prints” – Which proved to be a bold but very successful move!
P.S. I will launch my latest collection of original paintings very soon! If you'd like to find out more, get on my waitlist and I’ll send you a sneak peek soon.
