Bartsch Paris Wallpaper

Would you like to see a whimsical range of wallpaper out of Paris today that can be used in both kid’s rooms and in more grown up spaces? Introducing Bartsch, a gorgeous wallpaper company that I’m thinking will resonate with lots of you out there because it clicked with me for sure. I think the dotty black paper is amazing!

Lovely Home of Cotton & Milk Designer Justine Glanfield

I came across the darling home of Justine Glanfield last year – she is the founder of Cotton & Milk in England – and have been saving it for months in a file to eventually share on decor8. When I found photos of the home on the MILK website today I knew to couldn’t wait any longer so please see their site for a complete home tour featuring her wonderful 5 story home. My favorite glimpses are below.

Cotton & Milk

How charming to see something that almost could be a linen tablecloth doubling as a curtain? Adore this…

Cotton & Milk

That balcony looks so inviting and by the way, opening a door or a window in a room that you are photographing is a trick used in interior styling that I practice more and more in my own styling work. It makes a space feel more inviting and gives a casual touch to the photo, too. What do you think? Imagine the door closed and tell me if it would be the same photo….

Cotton & Milk

I like the many different surfaces and walls in this home – painted, brick, different types of wood, stains, it’s lovely!

Cotton & Milk

A gorgeous olive green vintage leather tufted sofa! A mouthful to say and an eyeful to behold.

Cotton & Milk

Cotton & Milk Love the idea of using a former fireplace as a bookcase.

Based in Brussels, this English designer lives there with her son and partner and has such a gorgeously personal decorating style that seems so considered and yet full of detail while remaining simple and understated. What a beautiful, delicate balance to acheive! Her dining room and son Oscar’s bedroom are my favorite spots and I adore everything that I see. So sweet and harmonious!

Colorful Burnham Design

One of my favorite American interior designers is Betsy Burnham. I’m consistently lured in by her unique work and how personal her touch is – it is so very Betsy. I loved watching a video recently showing her in action (see below) as she dressed a window at a shop in LA called Fuller + Roberts for the most recent Legends of La Cienega event. When I taught a moodboard workshop at Anthropologie in LA last summer, Betsy joined me to share her tips and tricks and was a real crowd pleaser and I was honored big time, a memory I’ll cherish for years!

Rita in Palma

I was recently discovered a Turkish designer living in Berlin that made me swoon! The label is called Rita in Palma and is mostly fashion accessories though I’d love to see some of her designs for cushions in the living room or as shower curtains or even panels for the window. Beautiful! I found some scarves from her collection that I love, love, LOVE that I need to show you because I imagine framing one for the wall, wouldn’t that be lovely? Take a look…

Of course, I’m also impressed by her necklaces and bracelets which are a very fresh, modern interpretation of traditional Turkish embroidery. After my Istanbul vacation in 2010, I have been hoping to see more and more contemporary Turkish design take root and grow because I saw many beautiful things in tiny ateliers and shops that made my heart sing. With such a large Turkish population living in Germany, I’d ideally like to see more of this type of work being produced here locally -  it is so inspiring!
