From Place To Space: Alpine Austria

6 November 2011 0


A few weeks ago I spent a wonderful weekend in Innsbruck, Austria. Innsbruck is supposed to be the capital of the Alps and happens to be the city where I studied. Although it’s not far from Munich, I hardly ever get there. Hence, I was so inspired while walking through well known streets and discovering old and new corners of this beautiful little city. Moreover, I enjoyed the dramatic scenery of the Alps that are literally on your fingertips. As you know by now, I was also inspired to take impressions from the place and transfer them to a space. How do you see an alpine inspired interior design? I see traditional wooden furniture and home decoration reinterpreted in a slightly quirky and colourful style, like these funny stag heads. 

I strongly believe that tradition and design have an unparalleled power when mixed together and served as a new creative idea. Fancy a trip to the Austrian Alps?

    Hi Igor – I love spotting things for kids rooms and family friendly homes – these stag head hooks are great! I’ll try and find out whether anyone in the UK stocks them. Thanks!
