Lisbeth Larsen talking about Jotunâ€™s latest spring summer collection, said, â€œThere is a tendency in the time that we want to bring nature into our homes. Green hues have been in the trend picture for a while, and now it’s the flowers that are of great inspiration – both in pattern designs or just bold colours.â€
â€œJotunâ€™s Spring Summer collection 2016 embodies a â€˜youngâ€™ character which is reflective in its fresh approach of using these shades of the season. When combined with colourful detail and floral fabrics, the uplifting mood underscores humour and playfulness. This will also appeal to those who believe â€˜less is moreâ€™ when the shades are beautifully combined with white tones or black for a
sophisticated impression,â€ she
