Jonathan over at Happy Mundane sent me a tip about his Dermond Peterson post – he thinks decor8 readers will really like these and I think he’s right! Here’s a link to his post here, so you can read more about Dermond Peterson and see additional photos!
Thanks Jon for the tip!

Lucy at I love a good shop tour, and since I haven’t visited their Perry Street store, I was pretty excited when Lucy passed these photos my way. Thought you’d like to see them, too. Eye candy! (Don’t you love examining every detail – these photos are packed with product, such fun!)
By the way, have you laid eyes on their perky little oven mitts? Perfect gifting idea! Purchase a baking cookbook and place an oven mitt on top with bar of high quality baker’s chocolate and wrap in clear wrapping paper. What a pretty present!

Being a big fan of La Redoute clothing for years now (chic and cheap finds!), I was super excited when I learned that they’ve teamed up with French design trio, Atelier LZC (a decor8 fave, read interview here) to launch a gorgeous range of homewares. There’s a pretty room divider screen, fresh and colorful duvet, super pretty clip-on lamp (great for your headboard!), and my favorite, these amazing roman blinds. Drool! [update 5/17: these blinds are not from atelier, but look very much like their pattern.]

Velocity constantly updates their site with new items so you always have endless choices when it comes to filling your nest with beautiful things (and many excuses to empty your wallet!). Here are some of my favorites, fresh from Velocity.
How sweet it is! Introducing the perky little love chair from Jonathan Adler. Slightly cottage, big on style, and very happy chic! I also like the weight dinnerware set from Jonathan Adler, you can set the table in style while still being able to afford the food on your plate. Also, there’s always an abundance of cool art at Velocity, and with new works from Jeremiah Ketner, you’re sure to find something to give life to that one wall in your house that you can’t seem to dress up. Now you can. Looking for a creative way to show off your green thumb? Try the Perch plant orb. Perch also has a few new birdies from their nest to yours – add one of their new trangle bird lights to your decor. It will give your space that extra pinch of character without detracting from your clean modern style.

Whether you’re a country mouse, or a city mouse, privacy is always a concern. One major trend I see sweeping across the UK and into America lately is chic frosted film – decals that are as stylish as they are functional. Sure, frosted glass has been around for ages, but the ability to create your own on a budget – brilliant!
Brume in the UK produces the coolest patterns too – you can get your frost on in style! Easy to fit, Brume window film gives you the privacy you crave while allowing natural light into the room, and since the film laminates the glass, it makes it nearly impossible to smash. Get creative and apply it to cabinet doors and interior doors, too.
