“it list” emma’s design blog.

i’m so excited to begin sharing these “it lists” from creative people i’ve come to admire from all over the interwebs! first up, is one of my personal favorite blogs, emma’s design blog. i can’t go there without wishing i lived inside emma’s fabulous finds. always inspiring!

emma fexeus of emma’s design blog shares her “it list” – a dozen things she’s hankering for right now. here’s why:

I’m always in the mood for black, white and gray. I have tried using more colour in my home, but the only one that stays with me is yellow, in very small doses. Most of the things on my list are by Scandinavian designers which fits my style perfectly, I love clean lines and natural materials as they feel very genuine and timeless to me. I’ve soon seen enough of the industrial lighting trend, but the Triplex lamp is not a mock-up, it’s the real thing, formerly used in hospitals and factories, which makes it special to me. All of these things would go into my newly renovated living room, except for the kitchen cabinets obviously, and would give the room the perfect finish! The Marc Jacob’s perfume is actually for myself, I only use men’s perfumes as I find the ones for women much too sweet and flowery for my personality, I guess I’m more of a green, woody, citrusy kind of person.
