DIY: Painted Secretarys desk by interior designer Krista Salmon

Beautiful secretary desk painted in grey and pink by interior designer Krista Salmon. She got inspiration by a scarf in hues of grey & salmon pink to renovate her guest bedroom and what a fantastic result! Love the choice of colors for the bed as well as the beautiful painted secretary desk in grey and pink. The interior is Autumn Red by Benjamin Moore and the exterior is Blackthorn by Duron.

Love this beautiful furniture design in bronze by the Dutch company TJEP. The furniture shapes are classic interpretations. The result however is sculptural with a pure aesthetic that is visually light but physically strong.

Bronze Age collection contains all hand-crafted pieces, using traditional skills that once underpinned our very survival, each piece a manually intensive work and formed from the material that represents the dawn of civilisation. For this project the founder wanted to create something totally opposite to the technology driven trends based on the emergence of new digital tools such as 3d printing. He likes the idea that bronze is precious and is therefore implicitly sustainable. It is either preserved or remelted, but never discarded. "Who knows maybe these pieces contain a couple of remelted ancient bronze swords” says Frank Tjepkema, lead designer and founder of Tjep.
