I’m totally taken with the work of Dutch design duo Jantien Baas and Hester Worst. Their studio, Tas-ka, is based out of the Hauge and their work is based on the theme “House.” Perhaps it’s no wonder I’m into Tas-ka– House and Home have been on my mind of late as I begin to put my stamp on things around here (three spice racks and counting!).

The centerpiece of the collection are several patterns, screened onto fabric and made into various home goods and accessories. The “house” theme also is worked into items like bread boards, prints and brooches. I particularly like the tea-towels and tote bags, both available in a rainbow of colors. And they perfectly capture the look of a Dutch city from above–the red tile roofs, chimneys and occasional green space– in their print  “City.” Charming!
