I adore this serape rug from Urban Outfitters. It’s only $39, and, oh, so cute against the white-washed floors.

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.

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.

I actually started silk-screening my own edgy designs on large floral fabric samples years ago.
I never got around to actually having the pillows made—if I had the time to bring my prints to an upholsterer, they might have ended up looking something like Kevin Corn’s silk-screened pillows above. I love the rodeo one.

From one of my favorite design blogs, Inhabitat:
“Every day, over 3,000 tons of paper towel waste is produced in the United States
alone and in the production of one ton of paper towels, 17 whole trees are cut down and 20,000 gallons of water are consumed, contributing to deforestation, water pollution and global warming. It’s clear that something needs to be done, which is why we’re teaming up with PeopleTowels to launch a design competition challenging YOU to design the next Inhabitat + PeopleTowels reusable cloth hand towel to help cut paper towel waste. The grand prize winner will receive $500, a chance to get their design into market and a 10% royalty on all towel sales. The winning design will also be published on Inhabitat.com for the world to see – so what are you waiting for? Get your designing caps on and get in it to win it!”
