Dosa designer Christina Kim has an affinity for fuzzy pink sponges that she picks up at bodegas in Mexico. She's the one who taught us this lesson: Humble kitchen accessories in bright colors can make your heart sing.  Happiness from a scrub brush? More than you can imagine. The Scandinavians have clearly been onto this for some time: Nearly all of our favorite tools for use in and around the sink come from Sweden and Denmark. Above: A longtime Remodelista favorite, the Normann Copenhagen Washing Up Bowl & Brush  is newly available in mint; $87.50. Above: From Flotsam + Fork, Iris Hantverk's Mexican-style  Washing Up Whisks  are made in Sweden by visually impaired craftspeople; $11.99 each.   Above: Absorbent, quick-drying  Växbo Linen Dishcloths  from Sweden come in 22 colors and are pretty enough to leave lying around; 103 KR ($11.91). This one is in Michelle's kitchen—read about her remodel in  The Death of the Dining Room .  Above: Hay of Denmark's Porter Paper Towel Holders are made of ash and come in four finishes; $48 each from Huset. Above: Clear the crumbs with the Mr and Mrs Clynk Epousette + Ramasse , a brush and pan from Andrée Jardin of France, €28 ($30.66). Also see the company's  New Must-Have Chopping Block and Vegetable Brush Set . Above: For mop day: Xala's Drop Bucket comes in pale green, navy, yellow, and red with contrasting metal handles; $25 each from Neo-Utility and $59 NZD ($38.57) from Everyday Needs in Auckland, New Zealand. See more of the Antwerp design company's everyday goods in our post  Belgian Basics with a Fairytale Twist .

Above: Christina Kim alert: The Casabella Green Scrub Sponge is $1.95 at Crate & Barrel. To see the sponge at Dosa headquarters that started our obsession, go to page 69 of the Remodelista book. Above: Wooden Washing Up Brushes by Rice of Denmark come in three color combos; £1.99 ($3.11) each at Trosta Home.
