I must share a gem that you’ll love, especially with so many seeking that special someone to create a box ad or banner for your blog without charging a fortune and who is willing to take on small jobs. Let me tell you about Fieryeyed Studio.
A decor8 reader, sponsor, blog pal, and talented designer, Jenifer Altman launched her design studio less than a year ago alongside her collection of jewelry and paper. Jenifer designs branding/logos for indie businesses and banners for the modern blogger, “My design aesthetic plays strongly into the graphics I create, however, my primary goal is to create something that not only my client?s customers will connect to, but something that reflects the heart and soul of the woman behind the indie business.”
As a small business owner herself, Jenifer instantly connects with her customers and knows what it takes to help them get off the ground. Jenifer keeps her prices affordable too, “I want woman to have the opportunity to have their business successfully and smartly branded while being able to still afford all the start-up costs of running a small business.” You can contact Jenifer via her website or email her at custom AT fieryeyed DOT com
SPECIAL FOR MAY: Take 25% off blog banners for new customers. Please mention decor8 when you write to Jenifer. Thanks!
Psst: She’s a blogger, too. Click here.

eBay never goes out of style — If it’s out there, it’s on eBay, and that’s no lie. I decided that, as hard as it is to share eBay gems, that I should start sharing more of my favorite sellers with you because I have over 200 that I highly suggest, many of which I’ve shopped myself. Today, I’m sharing “GreyGardens_Laguna Beach”.
These guys specialize in the ever popular Hollywood Regency decor (at least it’s popular here in the United States — is it popular in your part of the world?). Bookmark them if this style suits you, because their items are spectacular. Like this room divider. Imagine it as a headboard painted in your favorite color?

I have to share these images from artist, Dallas Shaw, taken on opening night of her exhibit at Miami’s Art Fusion Gallery in the design district. Click here to link to the Miami design district website, it’s the best to refer to when you travel there. Also bookmark The Hotel because it’s amazing and Todd Oldham redesigned it. Okay, back to Ms. Shaw…
Largely influenced by fashion and music, her acrylic paintings span from works on canvas to works on vintage wallpaper (so cool), cards, t-shirts, and prints. Some of the work shown here has already been sold, but you can contact Dallas directly to inquire about her work. Thanks for sending in these photos, Dallas – we love it all!

“About this chair: This classic mid-20th century modern chair is a brilliant designed reproduction of the original Bertoia Wire Side Chair. Triple bright chrome steel frame. Designed in the early 1950′s by Italian born Harry Bertoia, the sculptural Wire Chair is a study of space, form, and function. With its unique bent and welded steel rod construction the chair is exceptionally strong and surprisingly comfortable. Comes complete with a black leatherette indoor or outdoor custom seat pad for durability.” – Estela
