Organic Ceramics

Organic ceramics was what I was thinking this morning. Over time I have seen lots of these demure beauties on the net. So I decided to make a small collection of them. What they have in common are the muted, desaturated natural colors. The odd and uneven shapes. The, often locally sourced, natural clay materials.But some of these ceramics are made of more luxurious materials such as dark marble or golden metals. Still, they exude this organic vibe.

Wood decor works for most interior styles. And with wood decor I mean the little things, such as cutting boards, serving trays, pretty toys, ethnic bowls and so on.

And with plants we bring some of that nature back into our homes. But there are so many plant species, which should we choose? Well, in general I prefer green-only plants, with interesting leaves, maybe mixed with a bit of off-white delicate flowers.

And since my last post on this subject, which you can read here, I have found so many more beautiful examples which I just had to share with you. But this time it’s not about the black and white art gallery wall. Today it’s about large single pieces. This color palette will work in any interior.

Jonathan Adler

Jonathan Adler: I am sure for most of you in the States this Designer Star is by now a household name. However, this potter and (interior) designer is not very known in Europe yet. This could be due to the fact that we Europeans are not (yet) used to his signature style of bright colors and glam, seventies style pop culture inspired furniture.

Bblack and white art is a great way to add texture and interest to any  interior, be it classic or modern. I currently have a crush on Franz Klein (1910-1962), an American painter who happened to be good friends that other abstract painter, my fellow Dutch national Willem de Kooning. Klein is mostly known for his later work, abstract compositions in black and white.
