Round-ups

New at Le Souk

September 6, 2012

Hello lovely friends. How are you today? I am doing good. I just returned from the flower market which left me feeling very inspired. If you are on Instagram, you can see some of my photos if you look me up and follow me there – I’m @decor8. Flowers are such a lovely and affordable way to boost the spirit, aren’t they? I’m going to spend some time now putting together some arrangements to dot around my home and office. The punchy colors will look nice!

Today I heard from my friend Danielle de Lange, a Dutch blogger, stylist and online shop owner that I’ve been friends with since I began blogging many years ago. Danielle is an amazing woman, we’d traveled together and still keep in touch and try to see each other every year or so. I’m so grateful for her friendship as she has been a lovely support and fellow blogger and friend throughout the years. I thought I’d show some support in return and blog about some of the new products that she has added to her shop, Le Souk. I really love all of these items and I think that you will to. Danielle has a real knack for, “Mixing modern, traditional and handmade, — every product at Le Souk is selected with a lot of care and love.” So true. See for yourself!

    I’m a long time reader of the blog and love it. I am puzzled by the blackface/racist picture up the top. What is it?

    • Reply decor8 September 8, 2012 at 9:41 am

      Sam: I didn’t even look at/notice the painting until my husband – pointed it out… I was focused on the throw on the sofa which is what Danielle sells in her shop. I removed the photo, after realizing what the artwork was, it bothered me. Thank you!

    Hello holly! I love the color combination in the very first picture. Is the illustration on the wall a person or animal? I’d love to hear more on that piece. Thanks!
