I just love these new (and old, below) Foutas by Anna for House of Rym. I take them everywhere, to the beach, the picnic, use them as a cloth or a scarf. Well the bigger ones we even use as a bedspread. Of course available in the shop.
We have sunshine here today, had it yesterday as well. A n d it looks like the weekend will be sunny as well. Things are looking good + we have something very good to look forward to by the end of this month.

From one continent to another. Back in Sweden again. It was a long trip. Even if I can’t wait to go back Sri Lanka again, it’s nice to be home. And back to work. Look what has arrived, a first sample of my new rug for House of Rym. A handmade, 100% Halfa (natural vegetable fibre). The rug will come in a couple of different sizes. And it will be called Commedia dell’arte.
There will be other nice House of Rym news in the shop as well. Lovely new foutas by Anna for example, more olive wood and reused Kelim-textile items. Will show you more further on!

Two grown ups, three kids and a cat was involved. In bringing some Easter mood to the house, primary for the guests that will be staying here when we leave in a couple of days. Going to Sri Lanka. Looking forward to it. Much.
So we are a bit early this Easter, with the egg painting. Tip: Do you know about the Lyra pencils? If artist Eric Magassa say that this is the best glue. I say that the Lyra pencils are the best color pencils. I’ve been drawing with Lyra since I was a kid, and keep coming back to them. Ergonomic, triangular colored pencils (easy for small hands to grip too) with super quality pigments. Even for egg painting. I’m very pleased to have these treasure pens in the shop as well now.
Plate above is painted with a porcelain pen. Love those ones too. Easy to paint with, like markers. Check out the pot Mogu painted when she visited a couple of months ago.
While we’re on it, don’t miss Tiang Tang’s table Come and draw.
Another version of our House or Rym porcelain.
Just wanted to tell you that finally, the Gran pillow cases are back in stock again. Also I would like to thank you for blogging about our products here and there on the net – thank you! It’s incredibly fun and satisfying to see how the things are used in different contexts. These great photos are from talanted Norwegian An-Magritt from the blog with the same name. Yellow, white and black, as made for the new Rym porcelain collection.
Kind of dissy photographing and handling a ton of photos lately of our new coming Rym collection. As you can see the opportunities to mix will be there. The cups and saucers are now available for preorders in the shop. Please note that delivery will not take part until some time in May though. Ok, no more computor for today.
Well here it is, a part of Anna‘s and mine new porcealin collection for House of Rym 2013. As you can see the porcelain collection will expand this season, with several new colors and new patterns. The basic idea is that you should be able to combine the different porcelain parts as desired. The new collection will be available in the shop some time in April/May 2013. The old collection will of course also be available. Last time the porcelain sold out pretty quickly. If you are interested to pre-order you will have the chance in the shop in a couple of days.
As you might saw in my last post there will be plates in the collection as well. Hope you like what you see.
Update. Yes that bowl (below) is happy, with a face ;)
Many things are going on here at the moment. Changes, pretty big ones as well. Looking forward to it all, it’s positive changes. But first some news coming in. As you might remember my colleague Anna and I went to Tunisia, October 2011 to meet the lovely couple Rym and Zied. Our trip ended up with Anna and me creating the brand House of Rym together with Rym (yes her name is Rym) and Zied. It sure has been a journey. And that journey is still in progress. Actually our new collection for House or Rym is about to see daylight any day now. Even though there will be only parts of the collection available in the shops at first you will be able to see most of it here in advance. So if you are curious about what’s coming be sure to peep in here and there. Tomorrow for example, or the day after that (depending how much time and energy the new week has to offer). I might show some at Instagram as well.
Two of our new porcelain parts (and wooden salt & peppar mushrooms) premiered at the kitchen table today with Quorn vegetable stew and cheese sandwiches.
Nice plant theme in Potipoti spring/summer collection 2013. I especially like the potted cacti scarf.
This shop Once Upon a Time is just around the corner in the neighborhood where I live. I pass by it often. And can almost never just walk past. I am sure you understand why. The shop is runned by designer Pia Anjou. Mostly second hand, but also new (our House of Rym porcelain for example), all handpicked. Once Upon a Time is also a clothing brand, just as irresistible as the rest of the range. Must show you what I couldn’t resist in a later post. But first three posts about the store.

Flipbook Competition over at Napa, deadline November 1.
A little of my Rym porcelain in this nice styling.
A summery week passed. Today a more indoors day though. We painted with porcelain pens. Have you tried it? It’s fun. We bought ours at Panduro. Here is my circus plate.
I’m happy to tell you that things are going well for Anna and House of Rym in Stockholm at the Formex fair. Anna’s lovely foutas are nominated in Formex Formidable :)! More foutas here and here. (The same competition that Otto’s Ohoy wallpaper was nominated in a couple of years ago.)
