How-To: Marimekko Your Whole House

Finnish textile designer Marimekko was made famous when Jackie Kennedy bought eight Marimekko dresses, which she wore throughout the 1960 US presidential campaign.

I think Marimekko is best in small(er) doses, accent pieces where the color and design really pop. Too much of a good thing can diffuse/dilute it's intensity.
