Bjork inspired kitchen

Watching Bjork in this 1993 produced video of Venus As A Boy startled me for two reasons. One, Bjorks absolute beauty; how can a human being be equal measures of whimsical features, endearing mannerisms and all’ perfect angles at once? A real life anime if you please? I put her timeless looks down to her Icelandic heritage.

The second aspect that captivated me was the eclectic visual of her humble kitchen, a small nook in which Bjork cooks herself some midnight eggs in a dreamy blur. The Moroccan colour scheme, gypsy detailing and a homely feel that is created by the clutter that surrounds her is candid and just as endearing as Bjork herself.

As a tribute to the beauty of this clip I have collected some home goods that would make for a Bjork’esque kitchen.
