Bjørn Wiinblad

Sometimes I find photographs or features in magazines which in turn result in an avalanche of information, inspirations and sometimes even shopping... Reading a few days ago in Elle Decoration (UK) about about Bjørn Wiinblad, the late Danish artist, this was exactly what happened.

His house delighted me in it's colorful glory and the living room reminded me of a painting by Gauguin.

I began to research his work and became truly excited, since some of it was utterly familiar. His ceramics and designs for
Rosenthal Porcelain are well known to me. Living in Germany in the 70's and 80' particularly at Christmas time one would find his whimsical designs on plates and vases.
I found beautiful examples of his work on eBay.

And I did go and bid on some fine piece!
And I got it...

Now on it's way to my house from good old England!


  1. Love that room with all the book shelves! I would love to have one room just dedicated to books like that! I need to spend more time seeking and reading the Elle UK version! Thanks~

  2. I like the change that you have made in your blog, it´s nice.
    Thanks for your visit.
    have a lovely weekend

  3. I just spent the better part of the evening going thru my stack of magazines from the past few months, ripping out pages for my inspiration folders. I could spend days going over those folders, never know what I will find to inspire. Guess I'll add this to my list! cheers.

  4. Jamilyn, so true, I love a room filled with books and such inviting colors.
    Lois, I am so happy I got one on Ebay!
    Yolanda, thank you, your blog is always such an inspiration to me!
    Abby, I am like you, my folders with images are a source of pleasure to me.
    And always helpful for my clients too!
