Love from Ladak

Dutch company Ladak bring us a beautiful collection of hand woven blankets made with recycled and sustainable fibres, a matter which is close to our heart. Not only are these blankets beautifully crafted, they also warm from the inside out, with 15% of the profits going straight to The Amsterdam shelter for the homeless. I absolutely love the Roland blanket, with its careful stitching and silvery buttons, its got a place firmly on my wish list.

Design your perfect parlour with mydeco.com

When Chocolate Creative got invited to go along to the launch of mydeco.com's pop up store we couldn't resist. The tiny shop promised to house hundreds of products from high end, to boutique fabrics and furnishings. The launch of pop up store located in Notting hill coincides with the reinvention of mydeco's 3d design application. The design tool allows you to become your own interior designer; creating virtual rooms with which to fill furnishings fit to measure perfectly into your interior scheme.
Creating a mood board of desired items allows you to play around with ideas, from colours, to furnishings, fabrics and wallpaper before you create the perfect room.
Creating your ideal house is sometimes a luxury we can only dream of, so we think mydeco's 3d design is a perfect way to get a little step nearer to becoming your own entrepreneurial style guru!

Vintage cushions by Karin Lindström

If I keep finding things I want to buy I am going to go broke!! Beautiful cushions by Karin made up of vintage embroidery. I really like the mix and match of themes in each cushion, flowers, sceneries, animals...I find this look very fresh and unique.

Si sigo encontrando cosas que quiero comprar me voy a arruinar!! Adoro estos cojines, hechos de bordados vintage, y la forma en la que cada cojín está hecho de diferentes trozos, uno con flores, otros con escenas cotidianas y otros con animales, un look muy fesco y único.



Roses to seat on by Nika Zupanc

I keep finding new designs with an old/vintage twist, such as this chair with motifs of roses, traditionally found on tea sets and ceramics, is this a trend to stay?? What do you think of this chair by Slovenian designer Nika Zupanc? I Love it!!

Sigo encontrando diseños con un twist vintage, como es el caso de esta silla de la diseñadora Eslovaca Nika Zupanc, en la que incorpora un estampado de rosas, tradicionalmente visto en juegos de té y cerámicas tradicionales, que te parece esta tendecia? A mi me gusta mucho...

More clever design

Another clever idea based on traditional Swedish embroidery designs by Johan Lindsten, with a contemporary twist. Incorporating and bringing back old values and craft to new designs is becoming a big trend that I am proud to share in my own designs.

Adoro estas sillas, diseno contemporaneo con valores artesanos, todo una tendencia, de la que me siento participe.

Cozy furniture

I LOVE this new take on traditional German living furniture by Hannes Grebin Studio, the new redesign is so clever, I saw it last year at TENT London, and was love at first sight!!

Me parece genial y llena de humor esta nueva version de los muebles tradicionales de salon alemanes, disenos de Hannes Grebin Studio.
