Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Fresh talent from Estonia: designer Marlen Kärema has a gift for creating dramatic theme parties on a shoestring budget. First spotted on Kickcan and Konkers , Marlen's crisp linen shirts and textiles really impressed (to see these, go to Designskool ). But we were particularly inspired by Marlen's festive party decor. With a little creativity and a lot of washi tape, Marlen is able to transform her dining room into any kind of fantastical realm. From pirates to kings, each scene is a theatrical treat. See more from Marlen Kä rema , and photography by her equally talented husband, Tõnis Kärema. Above: Colorful washi tape makes a setting fit for "The Easter King."
