Palette reflects how differ­ent colors coming together tell stories and create asso­ci­a­tions. Loose thoughts are linked together by yarn. Harmo­nious gradi­ents create depth, light and justice to the inner vision. When the motif is complete, Palette becomes a patch­work of nuances, fields and shades, produc­ing a supe­rior quality rug with colored build­ing blocks joined together and kept apart by spaces.

After meeting with Gunilla in Stockholm, she decided to leave London for the little town of Kinna, Sweden. She has worked as an in-house designer at Kasthall since early 2013 with an aim to move Kasthall and the beautiful Swedish heritage forward.
