Tech Meets Books// Marimekko: In Patterns

There's something really bright and lovely with Marimekko's floral prints.


I'm a huge fan of minimalism, which can be evident through Creative Spaces, but I'm an equal fan of Marimekko, too, especially their bedding and their fabric lines.

Marimekko, a Finnish pattern house founded in 1951, is known best for their Unikko poppy flower design as well as their bright and graphic aesthetic. 

I just found out that Chronicle Books released a Marimekko book, Marimekko: In Patterns, a collection of prints and patterns with behind-the-scenes photographs of the creative process, which I find terribly interesting. It's so fun to see something go from a rough idea or sketch to the finalize product as well as what gets tossed out or edited. (Psst, Chronicle Books has a 30% off sale and free shipping with code GETBOOKS!) 

I made a wallpaper inspired by Marimekko and fall; I hope you like it!

Also, Craftstorming has a great recipe for Marimekko Unikko shaped macarons! Perfect recipe to try for the weekend :)
