this red monday: panton's flowerpot

i love this this lamp from verner panton . it's a classic. only problem would be to pick the right color, as it comes in so many great colors.

we had a couple of his topan lamps in my childhood home in the orange-red shade. they really worked well with those orange and yellow giant flower printed curtains. which i, by the way, still have. not as curtains, but the fabric. my mom has saved so many great things, including the fabric that made up our curtains, bedspreads, sheets etc. back in the 70's.

take a look at the verner panton online museum if you want to know more about this creative and inspiring man.


other shades of red (and white and yellow) this week are these absolutely adorable photos with red outfits from the cherry blossom girl. but all her other outfits are darling as well. right now she's showing this fairy-like diy white flower head band. not sure i could pull it off, but i like it. a lot.
also adorable is this red candy cat brooch from godrillhas21. he's also making some absolutely fabulous mobile phone straps, like this tiny baby on banana.

have a great week!
