Les Invasions Ephemeres Wall Decals: *New* Designs!

Sofia Antonovich and Pierre-Yves Toudic, the Parisian designers behind Les Invasions Eph?m?res, wrote in to show us some of their latest wall decal designs. Prices start at around 49- Euros, so if you’re interested in making a purchase, please email Sofia directly for a price quote and to purchase (sofia.antonovich AT wanadoo DOT fr). Their Branch decal, from their Scandinavian collection, is 19″ x 63″ is available in black, grey, red, white, pale blue, and light pink.
From their Marie Antoinette collection, the Chaise shown below is available in two sizes and colors. The large black chair is 16″ x 39″ and the small pink chair (not shown) is 14.2″ x 35.5″.

Also from their Marie Antoinette collection is the Tete de Lit decal available in twin 55″, queen 63″, king1 70″, or king2 79″. I think it would be fun to place behind a daybed, with the length of the bed against the wall and a king1 or king2 on the wall. Available in grey, black, or pink.

Pin up decals, available in 3 poses, smoking, spritzing on perfume, or with champagne (shown 40″ x 51″).

And for fun, here’s an image of their booth from the January ’07 Maison & Objet in Paris. The fireplace decal below can be purchased right here at Urban Outfitters for $125-.

Thanks Sofia for writing in!

Congrats, Daniel Sugarman!

Daniel wrote to me with some really great news, I had to share it. Last May 2006, I shared a tour of his condo with decor8 readers and it looks like someone out there from TV land was reading…Check it out!

“I wanted to share some news with you. One of the producers of HGTV found my work on decor8 and contacted me last month. The HGTV producers selected my South End renovation to feature on an upcoming episode, and they came in with a full camera crew to film the show. Thank you for featuring me last year, not only will I be on TV this spring but the Boston Globe and South End News will run articles on my project in coming weeks. I don’t know the air date of the HGTV show yet but can keep you posted.” -Dan

Here are some photos Dan sent in from his HGTV shoot. Yay!


Here’s the Globe article that just ran on March 7, 2007. Design Boston’s Grady has a shot of the full page spread right here. Go, Design Boston – you rock (psst: he’s always so on top of Boston-design, Grady never quits!).

Congratulations Dan, and we’ll be looking for you over on HGTV!

Karastan Plum Blossom Area Rug

So sorry for the lack of blog posts today, I had an editorial deadline and now that I have wrapped that up, I need to get ready for date night with my husband. We are heading to the coast to have dinner and see a concert, so I think I will post a few quick things here and run away with my sweetie. I missed you though – blogging is like slipping into this fantastic portal and mingling on the other side with those that truly get it when it comes to design, decorating, and all the things that I am into, that you are too. So, with that being said, I apologize for neglecting the blog today, and promise that if you check in over the weekend, I will make up for it with a post or two on either Saturday or Sunday, depending on time.


One thing I take very seriously is being able to find things that you are looking for. Recently, reader Jennifer from Chicago, wrote in about a rug she saw both in this post and from the pages of Real Simple magazine. The rug is called Plum Blossom by Karastan, and she was going nuts trying to locate it on the Karastan website. I told Jennifer that I would do my best to track one down for her, and today, mission accomplished! It finally posted online over at a rug outlet called Abingdon, so Jennifer click here to purchase your rug. :) Yay!

The rug also appears above, clearly a better shot of it by Real Simple than the one shown below taken from the Abingdon website — but it’s the same rug, I can assure you of that!

Melissa Moss *New* Etsy Store

I wrote about the wonderful Melissa Moss and her paintings last October, and Marisa at Creative Thursday interviewed her via podcast (very motivating for those ready to make a career change, you won’t want to miss it!), but when an email arrived tonight from Melissa, I had to share. Melissa now offers prints of her paintings in her new Etsy store. Yeah! Click here to view them all, priced right at around $30 each. These would look so great framed over a white sofa, I would love to pair up some of her prints with these new pillows from West Elm, especially since a few prints and pillows can give your room a whole new look for under $150. I love the idea of having an all-white sofa and splashing color on it with brightly colored pillows and great prints on the wall behind it. Can’t you tell I’m so into Spring decorating right now?!
