BRING IN THE ZING in your home

I went to the Home/Topdrawer/Craft fair recently and picked up the zing fling! The zingy yellowy colour has been around for a couple of seasons when it comes to fashion and I thought it was gonna be gone by now. But I guess this was a colour that is harder to take to heart! But now it has also reached the home front. Personally I have always loved this colour and had my tiny dining room in my bachelor flat in yellow and black, would still be going strong (sold the flat two years ago).  Above, even very minimalistic and architectural Artek had put colour on Alvar Aaltos footstool. A trendy mix of yellow, salmon pink and black! Yeah...

50-ies inspired vases from Danish company Broste. Mix with turquoise blues and greys.

Think Tiogruppen (The Ten Group, Stockholm), Marimekko, Pop Art and Mondrian. New wallpaper/wall decoration from Hemingway Design shown at Home (Earls Court, London, January 2014).

Knitted zing, this handicraft trend is still going strong. Again, mixed with salmon pink and grey with a hint of blues.

Swedish textile company Linum showed there classic and significative stripes in new springy colours and with Josef Frank (Svenskt Tenn, Stockholm) inspired floral patterns. Zingy and fresh!

Finish company has had a huge revival in the last century with the 1960-ies pattern UNIKKO. Now in new zingy colours for this spring and summer. Fantastic evolution of their own heritage!

Zingy and British. New florals with brushy flowers from Blue Bell Gray. Note the geometric pattern which is found in a piazza in central Stockholm "Sergels Torg". A quirky  mix with florals.

Think Squint in wool and very zingy colours! Traditional and trendy at the same time.

Colander in zingy yellow or black as seen at Home (Earls Court, London, Jan 2014).

Again, what in Sweden would be called "Sergels Torg squares" by Niki Jones, seen at Home. Really nice with the combinations of black, beige, white and yellow. I like! And again, a hint of salmon pink and turquoise...

Mappy patterns with a zing for the office.

Put a bit of zing into your office!

More zing for the office. Staplers in a design that makes me think of girly shoes. Lovely colour combination of blues, yellow and salmon pink, again.

Zingy up the wall. Mixed with grey like in the 50-ies. Shown at Home at Earls Court this Jan.

Zingy wool. British made!

Funky guys that follow the girls fashion with multi patterned trousers and a red jacket that takes us back to the 50-ies. I like the water combed hair. Very slick! And notice the white shoes! Jonathan Saunders AW 14!

Burberry showed classic style with hints of cowboys and Marlon Brando. Horse blankets over the shoulder, you can never know where fate will take you!

The new way of wearing scarves for men!    

Saville Row had invited some famous actors and journalist to show off their vintage style fashion updated in new colours. In the middle the famous The Times writer AA Gill. They showed their new collection in the Churchill War Rooms, very clever and unusual. Everybody was invited and we were serves whisky cocktails and elegant hors d´oeuvres.

Gieves and Hawkes chose to create sculptures by having models standing on boxes at Christies. I love this outfit, where is the vintage motorbike and the leather helmet!

Duchamps kept up with the others on Saville Row by showing their latest collection AW14 at the Royal Academy of Art with men playing games etc like an old fashion after dinner thing! I wonder if this trend will have a lot of followers around the world. Old fashioned with a new twist, elegant, expensive but can be achieved by being a good picker on the high street and add some high quality brogues in new unusual colours! More men's fashion etc soon!

Re: Greetings


REF NUMBER: MKO/2001/25432


My name is Kenneth Ifeoma; i am the account officer of Mr. Victor Pickering from the United States of America. Mr. Victor Pickering executed a contract with the Nigerian government of worth $36.5 million United States dollars. The fund was lodge into our bank for immediate remittance into his bank account. Our bank has made the first and second transfer of the fund into his account worth $20 million dollars because the fund was slated to transfer $10m, $10m and $16.5m. Right now my client has account balance of $16.5 million United States dollars in our bank here.

Over eleven years after we received information that Mr. Victor Pickering died on the terrorist attack September 9/11 2001 with his family,I have tried to locate his next of kin, but it yields no result. The issue right now is that the board of directors of our bank wants to confiscate this fund if I did not present the next of kin as the accounting officer. The directors gave me only two months to present the next of kin or consider the fund confiscated.

I was searching for his relations and I couldn't find any of his relation. All I want you to do is to stand as the next of kin to my late client Mr. victor Pickering so that we can receive this fund and share it together instead the board of directors from bank to confiscate the fund.

If you accept this deal, I will like you to state how you will want us to share the fund after you might have received it in your bank account, because we shall use your bank account to receive the fund. Also we shall work together as a team to claim this fund because I have the certificate and other vital information of the deposit of the fund.

If you are interested in this quick deal : CONTACT MY PRIVATE ATTORNEY He Will represent your interest and submit an application letter with your information to the bank but he agree to work on percentage which is 5percent once the money been transferred into your account, fill the form below and email to him or my hunble self .
