Give-Away: Win A Ylva Skarp Print

5 March 2012 0


Personality, Creativity, Integrity, Curiosity. These characteristics describe a good human being. Or the latest work of the Swedish designer Ylva Skarp. She was one of the big shooting stars at this year’s Formex, the Stockholm Interior and Design Expo, and the ‘talk of blogs’ all over Scandinavia and beyond. Her inspiring prints speak of her passion for letters. After studying calligraphy at the Roehampton Institute in London, she decided to combine calligraphy writing with traditional Swedish craftsmanship. The result are sleek yet playful, bold yet delicate prints.

Now can you imagine how thrilled I was when my friend Marianne from Nordic Bliss offered the unique opportunity of a give-away on Happy Interior Blog. Well yes, happiness galore! Nordic Bliss not only is one of the most beautiful and best treasure chests for Scandinavian home accessories, but also the first UK store to represent products from Ylva Skarp’s collection. And Marianne is offering one of the four 50 x 70 cm big art works to one of you, my beloved readers!

If you’d like to add some state-of-the-art Scandinavian bliss to your home, all you have to do is like the Facebook page of my friend and sponsor Nordic Bliss and confirm it with a little comment here. Don’t forget to mention in the comment which print you’d like to win – simply pick one of the four shown here. A winner will be chosen randomly and announced here on Happy Interior Blog next Tuesday. Due to VAT restrictions, this give-away is open to readers across the European Union. Big apologies to my readers who can’t join in – hope you don’t mind too much!

So, what else to say? Like, comment, and keep your fingers crossed for one of the great Ylva Skarp prints offered by Nordic Bliss! Good luck!
