Happy April, Marimekko fans!
(Hopefully you didn’t get fooled too much on Sunday.) The start of the new month can only mean a new desktop calendar for you to enjoy. This month we have my personal favorite Marimekko design, Kevatjuhla by Miina Äkkijyrkkä.
Bovine inspired and full of electric color, this bold background is sure to give you a jolt when you start up your computer in the morning.
Miina Äkkijyrkkä is also one of my favorite Marimekko designers, mostly because of how she chooses to live.
She has a great big piece of land where she works and plays, tending to her cattle and working on her art. For more inspiring images and a glimpse at her work outside of Marimekko, check out her website: http://www.akkijyrkka.com/
You won’t be disappointed. (Hint: think larger than life, recycled cars, and of course, cows.)
And for a little more Miina in your home, check out AlwaysMod. We’ve got a great selection of her bovine-inspired prints in other bright color options. We’ve got fabric, tea towels, coffee mugs, a throw pillow (a personal favorite, one that sits on my couch at home), textile art, and much more!
