12 Fab Finds This Week

Hello everyone, it’s me Holly and I thought I’d pop in for a moment to say hello! I hope you have been enjoying the sweet posts left by some of my contributing guests – it’s been lovely having them. Tomorrow I’ll welcome yet another to inspire you – a stylist living in LA. But first, I thought I’d check in to see how you are, what you’ve been up to lately, etc. I also thought I’d show you a few things that I’ve been loving this week. Twelve to be exact!

Fab Finds This Week

1. The new FABRIKÖR cabinet available in green, cream or black from IKEA. This is a must-buy, I have to pick up one for my entryway to display some of my Rosenthal vases.

2. Arne Jacobsen cups – I just bought four with my own letters – what would you spell? The temp+files thought SLOW was a good thing to spell. I agree!

3. A wood table like this one found in a Scandinavian online mag – which I cannot find now to properly link to it (please help me if you know!). I’m thinking to ask a designer here in Hannover to make it for me since I know she would do a great job on something similar. Just a little wider and no shelf. But chunky and thick. I’m in love.

4. Seems like everyone is into Astier de Villatte ceramics all of a sudden. I wonder why? Do you ever wonder that stuff too, like what happens when stuff you’ve known about for years suddenly is all over the place? We photographed vignettes that I styled in their Paris shop in Feb 2012 for my book, Decorate Workshop, which was quite an honor! I walked away with loot too that I love.

5. I’m cRaZy in love with Scandi food blogger, Call Me Cupcake. Look at the cakes she bakes! Oh la la!

6. I want these Folklore window decals from Haijke sooooo much. I have plans. When I order them and stick them up, I’ll share on decor8 for sure.

7. A simple necklace how-to from Tina at Travelling Mama inspired me so much. I want to go back to the craft store to shop for big beads now! I also LOVE her hot pink needle, I have to be on the look out for one of those!

10. And I’ve been just a tad bit into (okay more like massive overload obsessed) with the French Carnets Parisians blog lately. Oh it’s wonderful there… H E A V E N L Y.

11. Oh and Carnets Parisians has an etsy shop too called Asleep From Day. Swoon.

12. Circle punches from Martha Stewart! I’m completely loving my new punches that Leslie brought over for me from America. Have you ever tried these things? They are the coolest.

See you tomorrow – hope you are having a great week! xo

    Now I’m craving CUPCAKE … what a delicious photo (cue: licking monitor). All these finds r awesome (thanks for sharing them Holly). As for the letter-cups … I though maybe spelling LOVE, but then I do love the visual of SLOW (in our fast paced technology world), I would be a beautiful reminder to slow things down (or insult that I am too slow hahaha)

    Hi Holly! I love Martha’s punches! I used them to create my Christmas cards last year. I added the link to my blog post on the cards in the Website field.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh your finds have me in a frenzy! I just decided I ‘better not’ buy a display cabinet that I had my eye on for $1000. And then you pop up with this cheap IKEA equivalent! THANK-YOU!!!

    What a wonderful collection – so different and still belonging to the same world somehow, with lots of summer colors, light and creativity. I’m in love with that peach wall. And the ceramics. And the cabinet. the food pics look very tempting – but no, I can’t start reading all these lovely food blogs, too. I’m overwhelmed already. But maybe a glimpse from time to time…
