♥ "color is my daylong obsession, joy & torment." ~ claude monet


on this dreary gray evening i was invited to the opening press preview for the 
new marimekko shop that has opened within the crate & barrel 
on boylston street in boston- and i have to say, as soon as i stepped into the
 vibrant, colorful corner of the store, my serotonin levels happily shot up,
 and i was rejuvenated by the wonderful energy and the powerful punch
 that this cheerful brand brings to all who lay their eyes upon it.

while this is the first store in boston to launch a marimekko shop, the collaboration 
between crate & barrel and finnish textile brand is nothing new-and has actually 
been well in the making since the early 1960's when crate & barrels once
 carried their clothing line and all.

here are some of my favorite things:

live around boston?
tonight from 4-6pm, visit the diy surrur workshop at 
marimekko in crate & barrel on boylston
 and create your own accessories
out of marimekko fabrics :)

8 ♥ love notes.:

  1. I'm still drooling over the coated fabrics in the store!

  2. the fabrics. the notebooks. the cups. i want it all!


  3. I am obsessed with Marimekko. Adore their prints! I only wish I wasn't going out of town so I could take part in that DIY workshop..

    Insider's tip: At the end of seasons, they sell the fabric used for displays for just $5/yd. The C&B in Harvard Square often has quite a bit available, though some pieces have staple holes in them, it's a fantastic bargain!

  4. these are so fun and happy! i love those pillows in the first shot... if only i could up with an excuse for needing pillows right now...

  5. looove. i wish i could afford to buy a lot of it!

  6. Firstly, love that Claude Monet quotation. It's one of my favourites. And I love Marimekko's stuff. I wish there was a store around here to stocked their stuff so I could appreciate it in person. Though it's probably for the best there isn't else I'd have some serious bank account issues. ;)

  7. I'm having color a seriously good way. All of these patterns and colors are wonderful! I'll be needing a new shower curtain soon -- that one might be the winner!

  8. Wish I could have gone to this! I'll have to stop into the store soon to check it out.


♥ tell me how you really feel!
