It not news that the the Nordic region is producing some of the most exciting modern designs. Momtrends is nuts about Marimekko cotton fabrics. These bright and eye-popping prints are dreamed up in Finland and are known for their dramatic, yet light-hearted prints. Use them as window treatments or as bedding--paired with simple white walls the look is exceptional. I've picked a few uni-sex prints as well as one of the iconic blown-up florals to show off the versatility of the line.
Expect to pay anywhere from $35-$50 per yard. The fabrics are 100% cotton and measure 56" (142 cm) wide. Online the best resource for fabrics is AlwaysMod.com. (I'm fortunate to have a Marimekko store in NYC, www.kiitosmarimekko.com 1262 Third Avenue)
For more ideas on how to integrate Marimekko into your children's spaces, check out the Always Modern Blog here. In addition to fabric by the yard, Marimekko also makes amazing wall paper and home accessories. We say when thinking about kids' spaces think big. Design Find #4
