Marimekko Desktop Calendar – October 2013


Here to welcome us to the first full month of fall are the beloved Unikko poppies by Maija Isola, updated in a color scheme perfect for autumn. The color orange is commonly associated with October, bringing to mind Halloween and pumpkins, while rich hues of fuchsia, chocolate brown and forest green reflect the beautiful tones of the changing leaves.

Incorporating this pattern into your home is an excellent way to welcome the season. Available in 100% cotton fabric as well as coated cotton PVC, you can create beautiful tablecloths for use at your holiday feasts and celebrations. These colored flowers are also available in a slightly smaller scale called Pieni, or as tiny blossoms called Mini.

If you’re not a star seamstress and want an easier way update your interior space, it can be as simple as tossing a few of these pillows into the mix, setting a table with these placemats and napkins, and cooking your holiday meal with this cute and convenient oven mitt, apron, potholder and tea towels. Guests will also appreciate a cup of coffee after a big meal from these cute little mugs.

While all these goodies are seasonally relevant, the rich hues and recognizable pattern is appropriate all year round, especially for fall fanatics like myself.

  1. Please please please I would just love the Unikko Red / White /Pink as my background as it is my all time favourite print. I have made a number of shirts from the fabric and have the bag, shower curtain, pillows , socks, lamp shades – yes a bit obsessed I know. But can you ever have enough Marimekko in your life?

    • Hi Carmel,

      Thanks for the comment! We also love that iconic pattern in the classic colorway, though we usually try to feature a new pattern or a seasonal one for the monthly desktop wallpaper. If we don’t end up using that for November’s calender, I’d be happy to make a background just for you and I’ll put the link to it in the comments here! What size/screen resolution would you need, and would you like it with the calendar or without? Let us know!


  2. Thank you so much Megan! Without calender and resolution 1920 x 1080 would be perfect. Cheers Carmel.
