Pinterest Contest: Win a Marimekko Teapot

Issue 20 · The Northern Light · May 15, 2012

To celebrate our Northern Light week, we asked readers to submit Nordic-inspired black and white pinboards on Pinterest. The winner? Eliza McAllister's B&W Board was selected by our guest judge Emma Fexeus of Emma's Design Blogg.

Of McAllister's board, she says, "I liked this the best because it really captures the simplicity of Scandinavian design, showing that you can achieve softness and warmth even with a black and white palette, and also because the board has a good balance between product shots and interiors." Congratulations to McAllister, who will receive the Marimekko teapot, and thank you to all our readers for submitting your boards.

To get inspired, see our Nordic Black and White board; below are a few of our favorite inspiration images and Marimekko's graphic teapot.
