Michelle, my belle… She’s at it again, this time with some amazing finds with a super perky perk – 20% off all of her etsy art! You don’t want to miss this, collage art fans! I own 3 Caplan pieces and love them all, one was a commission, the other two I ordered directly from her site. They are all gorgeous, and I couldn’t be happier with her work. She packages everything with such care, so shipping is never an issue, and her follow-up is excellent, if you have any questions, she’ll answer your email el pronto. This girl has a unique brain, she is a super business person and an amazingly talented artist – rare combo. Gifted, for sure.
If you’d like to shop from her etsy store, click here. Upon checkout, type DECOR8BLOG in the notes section and she’ll take 20% off of your order during the entire month of June.
A blurb about why the sale must go on, from Michelle herself:
“In recent months lots of exciting things have been going on for me. My works are being carried by retail outlets and in the near future I have a few gallery shows going on. The prices for my work in my Etsy store will soon be going up to reflect the retail pricing. I do not want to be undercutting these wonderful venues and must therefore adjust accordingly. To help balance out the raise in prices I will from time to time be having sales and special offers to thank all of the amazing people who have helped sustain my art.”

Hip Minnesota store Patina has picked up many new items, including some of my fresh finds below. Shop one of their 5 locations or visit them online – perfect gift-giving opportunies with so many adorable goodies. It’s all the cuteness factor…
When the trees come together – book meets bookmark, also made of wood. Love this woodsy treasure! walnut wood bookmark. Looking for some bold graphics for your gifting? The black and red poppy card, white candle holder in a fab flock damask print (love!), and the breakfast gift set are the perfect way to show your love, not to mention your amazing sense of style!
Record your feelings or pen down your daily inspirations in this dog journal. For me, it was puppy love at first sight! The dot flower notes are real cuties, too. Moving from the pen to pan, let’s visit a perfectly kitschy kitchen, incomplete without a few retro pink butterfly dish towels and an eye-poppin’ poppy toaster or the smilin’ frog.

Dot Kite Lab continues to churn out the sexiest furnishings ever. Thomas Mylonas, designer, sent in photos of their newest creation, the DivaNetto, an uber posh sofa that would dominate the reception area of any luxury hotel with it’s metro simplicity (love the clean lines) and the chic uphostered pattern contrasting the white body with the crimson red print – chic! chic! I envision this in a posh London apartment or imagine spotting it in the pages of Elle Decor. Fab!
About Dot Kite:
Dot Kite was conceived in 2005, in the shadows of the Italian Alps. It was
schooled in the art of fine furniture and SoHo related products, as exquisitely dimensional as its homeland: the brand assumed boldness from its mountainous landscape, its fluidity from the Mediterranean coast.

Habitat just opened a new flagship store in London’s Regent Street, and it’s packed with all the hottest trends for your home. The store, designed by Habitat’s creative director Tom Dixon, is a former cinema restored into a brilliant retail space complete with original features including the cinema’s fully-functional Wurlitzer organ. With vaulted plaster ceilings and a brilliant stained-glass skylight (see photo, it’s massive), this store didn’t need much to add to the interior given the outstanding period details that already exist. Just add accessories! And that they did. The new Habitat store is sophisticated and glam without feeling overdone. Here are a few items that their press officer, Kirsty, sent along to me today. They are some of my picks from their website, and I hope you enjoy them, too! Love the Margo throw pillow and these Kelly table linens…
Habitat is located online and their new store address is 121-123 Regent Street, London.
