at the trade fair (again)

Ray and I went to the “wohnen and interieur”trade show  in Vienna (living and interior; not to be confused with the Bauen&Energie fair we went to a few weeks ago). We thought we’d be ready for some interior inspiration, Ray was on the search of ideas for his bathroom, kitchen & living room reno he’s planning (I guess our treehouse-renovation-project is somehow contagious, a lot of our helpers considering a renovation or a change of their housing situation in general… at least we can help them in return for their loyalty with some blood, sweat and tears).
love those honeycomb tiles!
wooden tiles!? awesome idea. but I wonder how functional they are in real life!?
Oh, I wished they would sell those plexi-dishwashers for real!
My favorite exhibition hall was the one with national and international interior designers. We saw ridiculously big showers like the one above… (I guess you can take a shower there with your 10 best friends at a time!)  and I got lost between fair stands of Scandinavian Design classics.
I fell in love with the Arne Jacobsen ABC cups at the scandinavian design house stand.wohneninterior13
Spotted a Hans J. Wegener wishbone chair ♥
Had to take a picture of this wall made of reclaimed wood. A similar wall will be one of our next projects in the upcoming weeks month! Looking forward to that and hope it will turn out just as good as this one!


We stayed for a few hours at the fair and at the end we scored a o’clock beer at an exhibition booth. We drank it strolling around towards the exit, discussing what we saw and what was interessting and suitable for our homes.
Walking through the kitchen-section we were wondering how those super-ueber-modern kitchens will look if “real persons” use them!? Although I like the style (displayed in a furniture shop) the treehouse kitchen will be a little less futuristic I guess know.
Thank you Ray for the company!

  1. Wow, that is the first time I have seen those wooden tiles up close – and your picture shows me that there isn’t much in the way of ‘grout’ between the wooden pieces! At first I thought they would be amazing, but now that makes me think – how do you clean them? Especially when you are a dubious cleaner already like myself? Hmmm…. but they do look awesome! I’d love to try to create something myself in a larger format just to put near our little fireplace stove 🙂

    • I know! first I thought – Wow, what a great idea!… but if you think a little further and less like in high-gloss-magazine imagination… these would be awful in the “every-day-routine”! I totally agree!
      Love the idea of “a bigger DIY version” looking forward to see that on house-nerd!
      I looooove your blog Maya!
