Have a Great Long Weekend!

February 15, 2008

Monday is a holiday here in the states, and I’m taking Tuesday off to work on a few projects, but I’ll be back blogging on decor8 Wednesday, February 20th. I’ve included lots of links below to keep you busy until then.

Have a Great Long Weekend!
There’s so much I don’t want you to miss out on until 2/20, so here’s a list:

Swedish blogger Emma has covered the Stockholm Furniture Fair so please visit her blog for complete coverage, trend spotting, and more. Great stuff Emma.

A beautiful loft in Paris to take you away…

A fabulous chandelier to shed some light (and empty your wallet).

Vintage maps from After Noah.

New Freshcut Pink books from Rag + Bone. Great as inspiration or art journals. And don’t miss the amazing Jim Deneven. Wow, now there’s a new medium for ya.

Rasta floor cushions and an industrial-style clock that is super unique.

Amy Butler’s Sew Inspiring Contest over at Craft: magazine (stay tuned for a decor8/Amy Butler contest in April!)

A stationery sale that will make you see Stripes.

Tour the home of Christiana Coop of Ferm Living (great job, A-M!).

A lovely Flickr group dedicated to still life photography.

Nectar & Light for inspiration (just lovely).

Karlsson lights that I want to know more about.

Creative way to display plates for a little DIY this weekend.

Fabulous online scheduling.

Beautiful Shweshwe fabric from South Africa.

Pupe Girl is a strange but cute little website for making adorable Japanese versions of yourself. Burns hours so beware.

This new tool called Animoto to show your craft creations online. To music. MTV style.

A grey flannel mannequin photo sent to me by artist Amy Gross after she read this.

decor8 press: Thank you Real Simple and Selvedge magazine! Also thanks to Cookie for a little mention here and to Amy at Blogged for rating decor8 a 9.5 because well, that’s not too shabby.

    Fab finds, as always! I’ve actually been looking at a knock off of that chandelier at Wisteria. They have one that’s a bit smaller (by 7″ in height) and is a bit different with some of the curves, but they also carry it in white and the pricing is a little easier to manage.
