This fabric from Pearson instantly caught my attention while flipping through this month’s Luxe magazine. I’m obsessed.
The script in printed on linen. It totally reminds me of some of the antique ephemera I use in my art…
“Hand blocked in India on 60 foot long tables this fabric is truly special and due to table size can only come in 20 yd pieces. All print is hand applied in wonderful neutral tones. Look closely and notice phrases, signatures and dates in both English and French.”
I’d love to upholster a set of simple wood-framed dining chairs with this fabric….or a headboard. Love.

We just popped this adorable fixture into a client’s proposal. It’s for their daughter’s room, and it’s so fricken’ cute. I totally want one of my own. “From the Parisian atelier of Mathieu Challières comes the whimsical Volière collection of feathered menagerie lighting. Each piece is made by hand from strong copper wiring and decorative birds with real feathers. ” Good news! These pendants are on sale right now at the Conran Shop.

I just got back from a lovely time on the East Coast. It was my first time spending any length of time in New England. I loved it. I will be uploading some photos very soon! A bunch of friends have commented on my lack of blogging. True story. I haven’t had as much time to write……though, I’m always inspired. I feel my creativity has been locked in a big balloon over the last couple of months, but the video below has finally popped the thin skin that has kept everything in. Creative juices are flowing…..Thanks Gotye (and my new Canon Rebel camera).

Matteo Home is the best. In the past, duvet covers that retail for $500+ go for $50 at their sample sales. This is some fine bedding, ladies and gentleman. I’ll see you there.

The other day I saw the entire line of Marie Turnor bags. They are sooooooo adorable. The “picnic” in tan is quite popular right now, but I really dig it in gold lace. I love the juxtaposition of the generic lunch bag shape and the intricate lace pattern of the gold leather.
The lunch bag shaped purse comes in three sizes: the snack, the picnic, and the dinner. Love.

The other day I went to the Apple store to check out the new Iphone 4S with a friend. He was more interested in looking at the new nanos. Those things are tiny. I had never really looked at them before. The Iphone 4S demo station was filled with people trying to figure out how to work Siri, so I decided to wander over to the nano section with him. He brought me over to the incredibly small machines. They are less than 2″ square–the perfect size for a watch face–someone discovered. My friend wanted to buy a nano to turn it into a watch–a pretty cool idea, which was “kickstarted” by Scott Wilson, founder of MINIMAL and former Global Creative Director for Nike Watches. Wilson actually raised almost a million dollars to launch his idea. The bands, which hold the nano into place as a watch, range from $40-$100. The actual iPod nano starts at $129. The entire cost is pretty reasonable for a multi-function watch.
With 18 different clock face designs, you have a lot of different options to choose from. My friend almost bought the nano and the Lunatik wrist band, but ultimately decided not to, because there wasn’t a calendar app on the nano. Good point. As soon as they add the calendar, I’ll definitely get one. Perfection…especially in pink.
