We all love the cards at BellaMuse, but did you know that many lush giclee + silkscreen graphics for the wall also exist? Oh yes, my friend, droolworthy objects of art that you’ll love to frame and display in your space. Boring wall need a pick-me-up? Head to BellaMuse.
The silkscreens are limited editions, printed by hand, signed and numbered by the artist, Alicia Peck. They’re around $275 each.
If you’re on a budget, you should consider the BellaMuse print collection. These babies add pep to your pad with stunning, colorful, happy graphics… All are printed using the giclee printing process and will fit standard size frames. They’re available in a variety of sizes and mats, priced between $35-$165.
Psst: If you plan to be in NYC anytime soon, BellaMuse has an art stand on weekends in the heart of SOHO on the south east corner of West Broadway @ Spring Street. Click here for directions.

Did you see Cally’s collection of buttons on her blog? You’ll just love them. For a quick mini project, I decided to look for glass jars with metal lids. I found some at target in clear glass with metal screw top lids that are absolute perfection. My plan is to display them on the shelf above my desk… Filling them with pretty + colorful things that make me happy.
The first jar will contain buttons. Old, new, all shapes and sizes. The second, vintage spools of thread, you know the kind on the off-white thin spools that you can tell have been used? And the third, maybe used stamps that I’ve collected from Europe dated between the 30s and the 60s. I’ve also thought about filling it with torn samples of my favorite wallpaper patterns or little rolls of my favorite fabric samples tied like scrolls with a thin ribbon around each.
What would you fill your jars with?

You may recall our recent interview with the talented interior designer, Vanessa De Vargas of Turquoise in LA. Well, guess what? Ms. De Vargas was featured in the June 2006 issue of California Home Design magazine. I’m so excited for her that I had to post photos of the issue and the article for decor8 readers to see. Isn’t this just terrific? Congratulations Vanessa!

A special thanks to Thomas Mylonas for writing in about the new InLull bench from Dot Kite. Dot Kite is a furniture and product design team located in Rome, Italy with two other European locations.

Here’s a photos of their new InLull bench, which I think would perfectly suit the modern interiors of trendy homes and lounges, don’t you think?
