color explosion: brita sweden

AC and I just got back from a quick getaway to the Hudson Valley (my Christmas present), where the daily temperature was somewhere around nine degrees. After a few days immersed in chilly temps and all-white scenery, I’m ready for a little (okay, a lot) of color.

As I was prepping for this weekend’s Gift Fair at the Javits, I checked out the online exhibitor list and fell in love with these gorgeous textiles from Brita Sweden. If there was ever a company with a pattern-filled collection that could shake the winter blues right off of you, this is it. From their bold colors and whimsical patterns to the kooky product photography, I want to hop on a plane to Sweden right now just to thank these designers for the dose of cheer and happiness this brought into my life this morning. I’m feeling warmer already just looking at the yellow image above. Click here to check out more of their work online (their patterns come in rug, clothing, tableware, fabric, cushion and toy form). I’ll try to gather a list of good online retailers when I see them in person this weekend. Here’s to warmer weather and more colorful days. xo, grace


I love these Grace, why have i never heard of these people? thanks for showing them.

gorgeous textiles & stunning photography … perfect antidote for the icky weather today! have a wonderful tuesday. xx


Loving their door mats! A bit of colour and bold pattern is what I need to coral and keep the saltwater at bay this winter.

Too bad they don’t have any North American resellers :(


These are all so great … It is sad to think that we just get to drool over them here in the US! Or perhaps D*S could organize a group trip to Sweden?


hi hilary!

i’m hoping to find some US sources soon to share here. also, amy azzarito from d*s is heading to stockholm next month for us so she’ll be sharing some gorgeous swedish design here soon :)

these textiles are wonderful… and very creative use of photographing them in fun contexts.** I’m just in love with most things coming out of the Scandinavian design world these days. ah!


if you head over to sweden, it’ll be much colder and darker than here! send them a thank you note instead :)


OMG!!! You can’t do this to me! I’ve been looking for a duvet/quilt to replace my parent’s hand-me-down (an amazing vintage Marrimeko that is sadly dying), and until now, I haven’t found anything that comes close to it’s loveliness. But that green, white and brown leaf pattern duvet! It could be my Marrimeko’s sister! So similar, so beautiful, I MUST know how to purchase it! (SERIOUSLY – I’ve been looking for a new bedding for YEARS). Thank you thank you!


Those photos alone put a smile on my face! I was just dreading another grey day and grey wardrobe choices – I’d love to be able to wear the orange and green patterned shift! So charming!

Wow! Such bright patterns! We are loving them, especially the first with the yellow! These are perfect for summer!
