These graphic totes from Anthropologie make me happy today. I imagine casually hanging one over a chair and not really needing to store it someplace since it would make a lovely decorative accent. So, so pretty… Priced between $68-78 USD, which I think is quite a steal for Anthro!
When I came across the lighting of Maryann Williams, I had to learn more about the lady behind Illu Stration.
Born in Cape Town, South Africa, and settling in Leidersbach, Germany, Maryam has studied nearly every design disapline imaginable, from textiles to fashion, interiors, pattern design, and architecture. Using mostly felt, she designs home accessories, lighting, greeting cards, rugs, hats, totes, and fashion. Three dimensional, tactile, sensual, I could gush on forever. Her work is to die for. Porteguese fashion student and design blogger, Coxi, recently interviewed her over on his newly redesigned blog, Life*Fever. (Congrats on the redesign, Coxi!)
I dream of living in one of those pre-war city apartments with soaring ceilings and ornate crown moldings. If I ever do, I’m purchasing a French antique style bed like the ones shown below from new designers Nicole Gale and Jane Jones of Au Lit. I love the green bed with the butterfly print in teal, and the other one with the large graphic palm leaves (sigh), it’s captivating. Now I really want to go to Brimfield in May and comb the market… Just imagine something like this in your bedroom…
