Plate Issue

Some months ago I told you about my love for plates .

And of my dream to have the perfect set of plates and tableware, elegantly matching together in one scenerie, but with different motifs on each piece.

It seems to be a difficult task, because I´ d have to decide for one single set and there are so many beautiful ones out there.

I ´d like to inspire you with these ones – not only if you happen to have kids and want to avoid sweet cuddly teddybears and bees.

They are actually made from melamine, so you can throw `em around and they won´t break. We´ve tried it :)




I found them in a museumsshop in Paris and I adore the colourful motifs of french artist Niki de Saint Phalle. The famed sculptor has put her charming bestial forms onto tableware:  A rhino, lion, ostrich, frog and a monkey. Only the camel is missing in my set.

And these porcelain plates below I discovered in London. They´re made by british designer Lou Rota.

I always start smiling, when I set them on the table.


You will hear more of my never ending plate story soon :)

If you look around your flat – are you happy with your wall decoration?

With mine I was definitely not! Every time I sat eating at my kitchentable, I had an urge of doing something with that boring white wall in front of my nose. Then – one weekend – I had an idea! I went to the shop – bought some few little coloursamples – went home on the ladder and started working on that wall. It took me the whole weekend, my family thought I was crazy – but believe me, I was SO satisfied in the end.

You can see me and my little one in awe right here below :)

So why not start the revolution in your own livingroom – you don´t have to be a graffiti street artist! All you need is a little bit of courage and trust in yourself! How about a tree, a landscape or a silhouette? If you don´t know how to paint in a realistic way, do it abstract! Use a pattern, do stripes or circles – just free your imagination and get started! It will do both: free your creative energy and give you a confident boost. Plus you will have the most individual and personal wall styling ever!

I would like to pin that down with a quote of the visionary Andrea Karg, founder and designer of the fashion brand “Allude”. She also encourages:

“Just paint directly on the wall, an artwork is allowed to be out of the frame.”

This time I would love to hear from you! Did you like this posting? Have you ever put some colour on the wall – except for renovating?  Maybe you can send me an email to with a picture of your work! I would be so happy to see that. So – take action as soon as you can and don´t forget: the only limit is your own creativity!
