scandinavian design love

On Tuesday evening I went along to Heal's, for a talk entitled 'Why Blonds Have More Fun: 60 Years of Scandinavian Design’. The talk was by Henrietta Thompson, Editor-at-Large of Wallpaper* It was an enjoyable evening, vodka cocktails and canapes in the Marimekko pop-up store followed by the talk. Henrietta was engaging, and funny and gave us all a brief overview of Scandinavian design and designers. 

But for me the best part was sipping my delicious cocktail surrounded by the Marimekko range! I bought myself a small 'Siirtolapuutarha' blue bowl and claimed my limited Marimekko goodie bag - which I adore!
