Jotun spring/summer 2015 collection


Jotun spring/summer 2015 collection


Apologies for being a little quiet on the blog lately – we are rounding up the school year (one day to go!), finishing off decor projects, preparing for a big birthday weekend in our house and getting ready to retreat to some cooler weather in South Africa next week. Suffice to say it’s been a ‘lil busy (read as chaotic) around here lately.

Let’s get down to some pretty paint business, then. If you haven’t already seen the six beautiful tones in Jotun’s SS2015 collection, then consider this your treat for the day. For anyone planning a little home improvement or DIY work over the summer, there is no doubt something here that you are going to fall in love with here…

Jotun minty breeze 7163

Jotun Minty Breeze – 7163 // Currently Jotuns most popular shade, and by far my favourite, the mint tone is subdued and discreet, yet commands attention. Minty Breeze is a classic and works well in any space, even with colourful décor. Oozes zen vibes, don’t you think?

Jotun Objective 1973

Jotun Objective – 1973 // Part of the grey family, which is becoming increasingly popular in interior design, Objective has a strong sense of calm, adding comfort to any space. Super chic, me thinks. Though competition for the top spot.

Jotun Soft mint 7555

Jotun Soft Mint – 7555 // Soft Mint is a tender rendition within the blue-green palette. Classic pairing for this tone is neutrals and whites. I love this shade almost as much as Minty Breeze, but I prefer the slight grey undertone in the latter.

Jotun soft skin 0580

Jotun Soft Skin – 10580 // Derived from earthy tones, Soft Skin’s pinkish tone gives it a very feminine touch. The shade works well with greys and black. Great for girly spaces.

Jotun velvet 10246

Jotun Velvet – 10246 // This lighter, soft amber tone is a sophisticated take on browns, with a tinge of yellow. To create a timeless look, pair this shade with grey, white or black décor. It also works brilliantly well with golden hues.

Jotun warm blush 2856

Jotun Warm Blush – 2859 // Inspired by the warm blush of a cheek, this warm tone is reflective of spring-summer weddings and romance.

Warm blush & soft skin would work well with my copper & blush moodboard, as featured last year.

Paintbrushes at the ready… Go!

  • Mariam from @interiorflavor reached out to me and asked if I'd like to participate in her #monthofinspiration campain and offer a tip to everyone. Mine is a really simple one that has to do with something I'm asked all the time... how do I have white furniture with kids and a pet? The answer is really simple - removable covers, peeps. My white sofa has them and they're washed every few months. It's the very reason why I partnered with @helmiibeds to design a bed frame that has removable, washable covers! No fuss, no stress. #toptip #removablebedcover #removablesofacovers #loosecovers
  • Progress report in Ethan's room... I wasn't feeling the one third ratio of the colour block against the bed, so raised the line to two thirds and I'm so glad I did. Try to ignore the pile of mess just visible on the bed and marvel at the wonder of that colour. It's called Northern Mystic but I'd totally have named it forest green. Either way, I'm loving it!

  • We've got a full house this weekend with my niece and nephew here and all 4 kids are coughing and congested 😔 poor things.  We've had to pass on our usual Saturday activities with in favour of a couch day. I caught little miss camera shy, aka Ava-licious, chilling hard with Peter Rabbit 🐰

  • New to the portfolio: a piano room. Take a tour of this moody and discerning space on image by @marli_smithphotography #houseofhawkes #pianoroom #yamahapiano #wallpaper #pianoman
  • I've put in an order for a new slip cover for my #helmiiXhouseofhawkes bed. It's for my guestroom makeover and I've opted for the off-white. I should have it by next week and I'll be sure to show you how quick and easy the change is! #bedslipcover guestroom #makeover #easypeasy
  • When @style____k (bless her for her patience) was trying to get a shot of us at the @fronteriors product shoot, but we were knee deep in hardware discussions. Again. 
Also, could you die for the plywood fronts and top for BESTA? And the cane doors for BILLY!!?? 😁😜🤭

  • Today was a biggie for @liveloudgirl and I. That little idea about making custom fronts, tops and accessories for IKEA frames became a big reality as we embarked on our inaugural shoot for the @fronteriors website with the first few items fresh off the production line. The full collection isn't yet ready but we've decided that rather than waiting for everything to be finsihed before we go live, we're going to make items available to purchase as and when they are ready. A decision based largely on our excitement induced impatience, but also because of the 'are we there yet' questions we are fielding on a daily basis. And we get it. At this point, theres already a great selection of options coming online, including the hotly anticipated cane doors for the BILLY bookcase. We're so excited to bring this concept to the local market! Keep on eye out for the announcement of our website going live! 
Big thanks to everyone who assisted us in pulling today together: @nordichomeworx for the dreamy flooring, @8thstreetstudios for the studio space, @style____k for getting me out of my ripped jeans, @marli_smithphotography for being behind the lens, @jleeksma for video  magic, @jotunpaintsarabia for always having our back... and our walls! @thebowerycompany for accessories, for amazing organisation

  • Over at @fronteriors some of our first units are almost off the production line and we're prepping to shoot images for the website every soon. Epic excitement here as It's. All. Happening! Eeek. I'm so thrilled to be embarking on this big adventure with such a fabulous partner in design endeavours - @liveloudgirl ... afterall, someone's gotta look good around here! #funtimes #fronts #frontsquad #fronteriors #herewego
  • All eyes on Kate 👀 because some icons never go out of style.
