Bleu Nature: Organic Beauties for the Home

Located near Lille, in Northern France, Bleu Nature is inspired by the organic and hand-crafted, using materials such as driftwood, hemp, pebbles, stones, flat rocks, raw linen, boiled wool or mohair, raffia, teak and slate.
After touring Danielle’s apartment yesterday in The Netherlands, and drooling over the mirror she had displayed over her fireplace, Danielle revealed that Bleu Nature was her source for this fascinating piece.

Bleu Nature is unique in that they do not purchase their driftwood from China or at some dot com shop, rather they scour nearby beaches for it. All sizes are collected and used to create a one-of-a-kind creation. Friendly to our environment, beautiful in our homes. I just love thier approach, materials, and wow, look at those mirrors and lighting, inspiring! I will never look at driftwood the same…

If you are interested in inquiring about price or to make a purchase, please contact the Bleu Nature studios directly. On their contact page, you can also find their downloadable catalog and price sheet.

Thanks Danielle for the tip!

PR Open Thread

Project Runway tonight, so far, has been great. They’ve redeemed themselves from last weeks cut of Alison, in my opinion. I’ll post more in the comments section below later…

Hut Up: Beautiful Wool Finds from Berlin

Using traditional felting methods, Hut Up in Berlin creates one-of-a-kind hand-crafted creations that will keep you warm and cozy in the months to come. In fact, they’ll not only keep you cozy, but they carry items to give your home a feeling of warmth, too. Clothing, baby items, jewelry, key tags, mittens, bags, hats, cell phone holders, frames, table accessories, rugs, pillows, and so much more… You simply have to spend time on their website and see for yourself. I really enjoyed seeing felt used in so many creative and colorful ways. Beautiful! I love the idea of putting felt veggies in the kitchen (maybe in a glass jar on a shelf), or using cut out felt rugs for the floor or placemats for dining. While in Berlin this Fall, I think I’ll wander into Hut Up so I can see these items up close and personal – seeing their collection online makes me want to touch everything!

If you’d like to purchase anything that you see on their website (it’s in English), click on Contact and send them an email regarding the products in which you are interested in. I’m sure someone will respond to your email.
