Recently I came across a website called Coco Lapine Design. Ran by a talented designer and artist living in Berlin, Sarah a Belgian born talent, is an expert on minimalistic expression which is shown in her work designing homes, but also in these art prints found in her shop. These are just a few of my favourites.
A favourite blog of mine Mash Makes, posted a DIY bridesmaid gift design over a year ago. With the holiday approaching fairly fast, I decided to revisit her post and thought it would make great minimalistic gift packaging.
Here she used small brown boxes, twine and olive tree branches. However, if you were to use brown parcel paper, twine, and substituted the olive tree branches with pine tree branches, or any festive plant (think poinsettia), you would have beautiful, simplistic, and culturally appropriate gift packaging for anyone.
I’ve spent the last two days rifling through the work of Annaleena, a Swedish-born freelance interior stylist. Her work in minimalism is en pointe. Her clean, sharp designs are inspiring to say the least, and her use of basic shapes with industrial materials will make any room interesting. Here are some pictures from her own home shared on her website, which can be found at http://www.annaleena.se.
