I’m throwing in the towel on getting my monday post in on time today. The Marimekko tea towels to be exact. I had a huge stretched Marimekko Canvas as the central piece of art in my room growing up. It was bright and bold and modern and I thought it was over-the-top-cool.
And while I can’t even remember what happened to the first piece of art I added to my collection at 13, I’m still a huge fan of Marimekko Anything. The patterns. The bold colors. The unexpectedness of the designs. And the range of colors and imagery is fantastic.
I’m so happy Crate & Barrel does its darndest to keep Marimekko patterns in their ongoing collections. I have two pillow shams on my master bed right now that are muted scandinavian nummy. If you want to make a little less of a commitment to the boldness of Marimekko designs…I say grab yourself a tea towel…or a set of tea towels as featured onwww.finnstyle.com.
For around $29 dollars you can pick out a set of two Marimekko tea towels. And bop around your kitchen with them…see how you feel about the bold colors and patterns. And even the more subtle ones above. I think tea towels are like new underwear for the kitchens. You’ll feel fresh and sassy without spending a fortune. Only you will know you have new tea towels. I guarantee nobody in your family will know what you’re smiling about. It’s between you and the tea towels. And of course, all of us here at Spark.
