In his final dispatch from Maison et Objet, International Style Editor
Emilio Pimentel-Reid notes the prevalence of shades of blue and green. "Paired with crisp white" he says "these shades continue with a
palette reminiscent of seaside holidays or a forest or lakeside retreat - think
escapism with a touch of indulgence." 66

Anna Torfs’ unconventional glass-cutting techniques reveal the contrast between the vibrant center and sober skin of her objects. Referencing nightfall in the deep forest her darkest green is ‘strong but not screaming a true color that feels natural as well as intense and deep.’ Torf uses green on her ‘Valenta’ range ‘because this is for me the archetype of all vases’ as well as the ‘Mo’ bowls which look best grouped together.

The London-based design duo
Custhom create innovative high quality wallpapers, ceramics, textiles and stationery. Their new ‘Aves’ embroidered wallpaper and textile designs draw on the rich heritage of Otani fabrics from Mexico. The tactile designs depict a menagerie of creatures, delicately stitched on paper and cotton in a palette of soft grey, dark charcoal and our favourite cream and blue, creating designs that are at once dramatic and refined. While the fabric is immediately reminiscent of original Otami designs, the unexpected application of the same embroidered motif on wallpaper offers a striking option for your walls.
