Blik just launched these new flips that take wall decor and POP! adds a whole new dimension by taking interchangeable 3D patterns and using them to spice up your walls.
Best part, they do not require special paint or wallpaper, just your lonely little wall. Select from the fling small or big, node, round or bounce patterns and you can flip your wall into a whole new look for your living space. A special thanks to Michelle in LA for the headsup about these fun flips!

Dinosaur Designs

A big thanks to Erin in Australia for turning us on to Dinosaur Designs, a successful design-based business combining the primitive with ultra modern resulting in a collection that is fresh and fun. Launched by Louise Olsen, Stephen Ormandy and Liane Rossler, who have been working together now for over 20 years, they design distinctive jewelry and resin homewares that are as functional as they are display pieces. With sleek spoons and dishes alongside cool containers and platters crafted in vibrant color resin, Dinosaur Designs is not only a real eye catcher, but eco-friendly, durable, and dishwasher safe. If you’re ever in NYC, you can visit their only U.S. based store on 250 Mott Street in Nolita, or visit them online to inquire about purchasing. (They have their entire collection on their website along with pricing).

Shoes As Idea

Mark wrote in about his fantastic prints and blog and after checking out his art, I simply had to share it with you today. Mark Schwartz, talented shoe designer and artist, launched Shoes As Idea, a site showcasing his original art and limited edition prints of one of my favorite subjects – shoes! This is what Mark tells us about his work:

“Many of my influences come from extensive travel and the experiences I have brought with me along the way. Colors, shapes, textures, and formations grab my attention and allow me to bring a shoe or the shape of a shoe to another level. Making shoes function as an art form is extraordinary and rare; to expose this awareness with other people is what I have come to love. My goal is to produce whimsical works of art, portraying shoes as more than an accessory. The shoes are stretched and exaggerated making them imperfect like life, and I twist these images into positions that seemingly dance off the page.” – Mark Schwartz

Thank you Mark for sharing your beautiful creations with decor8 readers.

coffee + cre8tive [apr 3 06]

Happy April everyone! Isn’t it exciting that April is here? Time to experience budding trees, bright yellow daffodils and tucking away your winter coat in exchange for a fresher lightweight version.

I snapped this photo in Boston on Saturday; this stone walkway was so pretty. I hope you enjoy it.

Back soon!
