I found out about the lovely e-mag (yes, another one!) called Cellardoor magazine today on twitter when I read a tweet from Caitlin over at Nice etc. — she was featured in their latest issue. Intrigued, I clicked her link and found a lovely e-magazine primarily focused on fashion but that also contains a bit of interiors inspiration, too.
Launched last year in the UK by Amy Power and Jade Cooper-Collins, Cellardoor is a quarterly e-magazine geared towards the young and stylish. In it, you can find mostly fashion along with music, art, beauty, interiors, culture and more. “Cellardoor has a feminine but edgy quirkiness that will make you want to keep flicking through, discovering new talent, hidden treasures and classic gems that we want to let everyone know about.”
A highlight for me was learning about illustrator Emma Block – you should seriously visit Emma’s website. Drool! I love it ALL.
Check it out!

I heard about Japanese textile designer Naomi Ito (she designed the Nani Iro fabric collection) for the first time today from Leslie — she pointed me over to Heather’s blog to learn more about Naomi as well. These are such gorgeous patterns, and I love the watercolor-y deliciousness of them all and had to post them for a little visual inspiration for you today.
You can buy some of her prints, patterns and books at Super Buzzy in case you like what you see… You can also search for Naomi Ito or Nani Iro on Etsy and you’ll find sellers who have her things too.
I wish you a lovely weekend! I am going to a fabric market with my friend tomorrow and then I’ll be reading, writing more of my book, and packing for the big move in two weeks. I also have to work on my kitchen design this weekend — almost forgot about that — oh my! Busy! And what about you, anything that you have planned?
Also, I have quite a lot of shiny new books to read. Here is what came in this week. I bought some of them online, I went on a little book shopping spree and yes, I indulged quite a bit…. First up is Home is where the heart is and also Sensual Home both by Ilse Crawford and I can’t believe I’ve never read them!! Oh and the new issue of Jeanne d’Arc magazine, I bought a second copy of Simply Home by Mark & Sally Bailey because I forgot I already had one (oops!), American Modern by Thomas O’Brien, Farrow & Ball Living with Color by Ros Byam Shaw, Harmonious Home by Judith Wilson, All in the Detail: Over 400 Finishing Touches That Make a House a Home by Caroline Clifton-Mogg, Old House New Home: Stylish Modern Living in a Period Setting by Ros Byam Shaw, Contemporary Country by Emily Chalmers and Pattern by Orla Kiely. Yes I know, that’s a long list and very indulgent of me but it feels good having this great stack before me to enjoy and refer to for ideas and inspiration over the years to come. I love books.
Have a lovely weekend and if you can, spoil yourself a little – okay?

There are so many great e-magazines out there right now! If you don’t believe me, read my complete e-mag round up and prepare to drool in delight. The next digital mag premiering on computer screens around the world is called Rue and is available for your perusing pleasure…
I’d like to thank Rue founders and fellow bloggers Crystal Gentilello and Anna Sage for featuring me in Blogger Side By Side on pages 40/41. I loved the illustrated stick thin and stylish version of me (I wish!) that the amazing Dallas Shaw pulled together, so cute! And it was fun to see illustrated me holding my favorite wallpaper and surrounded by two of my favorite things, perfume and lip gloss. I also liked learning about some of Ronda’s favorites too. You can see it below…
And here are some favorite glimpses from this beautiful magazine… I love how many bloggers I spotted in this issue, it was a really nice mix of my favorite people online and how excited I was to read that the fabulous Will Taylor from Bright.Bazaar in London works for Rue now – I love that guy (Will you soooo rock).
There is Joy in the navy/white spots having fun!
Great bed, love this frame and that gorgeous pink spread.

More pretty views of Victoria’s home.
Happy Friday everyone!
