Candace Olson & York Wallcoverings show the softer side of Pantone’s Radiant Orchid!

Pantone’s color of the Year Radiant orchid doesn’t have to be bold! Interior Designer Candace Olson has created a soft transitional pattern for her new Modern Luxe Collection for York Design in the beautiful design that is a hybrid of damask and lace in an updated modern version! A design that could work with all sorts of coordinates in fabrics and accessory or a statement wallcovering that can stand alone and take center stage as the focal point of the room!

The ICEHOTEL in Sweden, “Cool” yet Cozy Interior Design

ICEHOTEL has proven that it is possible to create a buzz around the simplicity of the ice.

Winter time at ICEHOTEL gives you the best of all that Swedish Lapland can offer its winter guests. From December 5th to April 14th.

ICEHOTEL is the world’s first and largest hotel built of snow and ice and it is situated in Jukkasjärvi, a small village in Northern Sweden with 1,100 residents and 1,000 dogs.

ICEHOTEL covers 5,500 square meters and is constructed from 1,000 tons of Torne River ice and 30,000 tons of “snice”, a mixture of snow and ice that strengthens the structure. Around 100 people are involved in the construction of ICEHOTEL, half of which are artists especially invited to design particular areas of the hotel. The construction is a year-round process. Between March and April, 5,000 tons of ice is harvested from the Torne River and kept in cold storage during spring and summer. Construction takes place in November and December and the entire ICEHOTEL is then open between December and mid-April, when everything begins to slowly melt and return to the Torne River.

ICEHOTEL is beautiful and ephemeral, changing yet consistent. Every ICEHOTEL is special. Thanks to the work of visiting artists and designers from around the world, it is always a unique attraction. With innovative and modern design; technical know-how and architecture, ICEHOTEL is a project with high ambitions that leaves no one indifferent.

Entrance to the ICEHOTEL



Visiting ICEBAR is something you should do at least once in your life. Sip on a delicious cocktail or have a glass of champagne – obviously the glasses are made entirely out of ice.
