Color Trends 2014 From Vintage Perspective

What color is in (and what’s out) in 2014? The answer to this question for a global leader in paint and coating such as Jotun is 24. Yes, Jotun provides 24 colors of paints in its Color Trends 2014 campaign, which are grouped into three themes: Travel in Style, Urban Casual, and New Comforting. Urban in Style projects elegance, warmth, and glamor, best represented by dark blue, green, maroon and purple. As for Urban Casual, it’s all about being creative, laid back and individual with orange, retro blue and grey in the color palette. New Comforting is best for those who want to have a relaxing, peaceful and simple space. This color scheme includes dew blue, tudor, edelwise, among others. For the launch event of Color Trends 2014 the Norway brand commissioned Jakarta Vintage to make an interpretation of the three themes above by designing and decorating three spaces in its launch event today. Here are the photos, styled and shot by our creative team, at our showroom/ studio at the Darmawangsa Square. How do you like it?

10 Designs That I Love at Bazaar Art/Casa 2013

The Indonesian version of Milan Design Week  — that is Bazaar Art/ Casa 2013—was back last week. This time around I was really intrigued by the works of young designers who made it to the final of The Design Challenge 2013.  I think their works are awesome. Just look at the works here. They are exactly what this event wanted to achieve: unity of art and design. One chair is inspired by Rumah Gadang, another chair is very Mickey Mouse. Or that two seater in yellow fabric by Mariska Adriana and that slim side table by Zanun, they are all fresh and unique. I love them all. What do you think?
