Etoile Home

November 6, 2008

So the hunt for the crochet blanket ends… I featured Etoile Home in London awhile back but when owner Shani wrote in recently to announce new products and a special sale page, I just HAD to share. Okay there’s another reason… a bit of a selfish motive. See this blankie?

…. This bedroom was featured once in Living Etc magazine and I’ve saved in in my inspiration file for like, ever. I tried desperately to locate this blanket and I tracked down Designers Guild UK as the source. BUT they no longer carry it. Poo, just my luck. Today things changed. Etoile Home not only has it, well pretty much a carbon copy at least, but it’s on sale. Score! Now I’m wondering if I should just go for it or not. The dollar is getting stronger up against the pound… And that sure does look purrty there on that bed, now doesn’t it?

You know maybe I should just go for it, it’s the perfect size and it’s on sale… I just hope that Etoile Home ships to Germany!

Did you notice? Not only do they carry my beloved blanket but you can find fabulously eclectic pillows, bedding, kitchen linens, fabric off the bolt, etc. As I looked over the photos I thought of how lovely they were styled and you know what, Shani Beadle (owner) is a well known fashion and interiors photographer and stylist in London (by way of Canada) which explains everything, now doesn’t it?

Harmonie Int?rieure {New Designs!}

November 6, 2008

I’m always happy to hear from Fabien & Fr?d?rique of Harmonie Int?rieure, a French company that I’ve written about before who specialize in wall decals. I know, I know… wall decals. Ugh. They’ve been done to death. I have to agree BUT I think that the number of paint colors, wallpapers, and fabrics can be a bit overwhelming too. When you see 10,000 of anything you can get worn out. I know I do.

Only the special, only the unique end up really standing out — it’s the only way TO stand out in such a competitive market. That’s why Harmonie Int?rieure is more than worthy of a mention and of your time today. Their designs are simply gorgeous and very far from being tacky or boring. What I love is that they are very in tune with current trends but at the same time they’re true to their own vision and their love for dynamic graphics that look more like art than some trendy, silly sticker. I’m sure you can see that from these photos. Stunning, huh?

I absolutely swoon over their work and would like very much to own something from them in the near future… Lovely!
