Famille Summerbelle: Wallpaper & More!

Good morning and happy new week to all of you. I didn’t want to get out of bed this morning but after a cup of mate tea and some exercise, I feel a bit more energized! Mondays aren’t particularly my favorite day so I have to work extra hard at liking them. So! How was your weekend? Did you have a nice time? I went to a flea market and found a great antique cabinet and some Smiths/Morrissey vinyls. I also relaxed at a favorite pub nearby and had a chat with my publisher in London about projects for next year and beyond. It wasn’t the most productive weekend (I didn’t lift a finger around the house) but at least I was able to relax and prepare for a new week.

Famille Summerbelle: Wallpaper & More!

This morning in my inbox was an email with some very sweet wallpapers so I thought I’d share them with you. Have you heard of Famille Summerbelle? They just launched their latest collection mere minutes ago, Morning in Manhattan, which includes new wallpaper in two colorways along with a pretty wooden tray, mug and tea towel. It is their tribute to NYC, “Brownstones, fire escapes, rooftop water towers, bustling streets and an unforgettable skyline”. Here is a glimpse of what they carry in their online shop…

Famille Summerbelle: Wallpaper & More!

I love this quote that I found on their blog, “He adored New York City. He idolized it all out of proportion… No, make that: he – he romanticized it all out of proportion. Yes. To him, no matter what the season was, this was still a town that existed in black and white and pulsated to the great tunes of George Gershwin”. – Woody Allen, Manhattan 1979

AND speaking of NYC –  I’m posting a very special tour of Lotta Jansdotter’s studio shot for decor8 that I’m going to run in a few moments. You won’t want to miss it. So inspiring!

    Such a beautiful pattern. It makes NYC seem almost like a fairy tale… Cheers! (raising my own cup of coffee)

    I think it’s okay that you didn’t accomplish a lot this weekend. We all need some down time in this crazy busy world of ours. I love the tray with the matching coffee cup. Have a wonderful Monday!

    I wish every weekend was like this in October in northern Germany (we both know it isn´t), so not lifting a finger around the house was the best thing to do- you can do that when it gets cold and gray rainy! I went to the flea market as well… actually to 2 different flea markets… one on saturday and one on sunday. What can you do?
    Love the Woody Allen quote. Can´t wait to go back to NYC some time soon.

    That Woody Allen quote is incredible. Thanks for sharing it. I mean – the wallpaper is pretty gorgeous as well. But the way he talks about New York… is inspiring.
