Ivana is a reader from the UK who wrote to me about Jana Orsolic, a designer/art director from Serbia because she thought I’d love her blog. Well, thank you Ivana for the suggestion and you are right – it’s a great site with plenty of unique finds. It is written primarily in Serbian but also some English, but with links highlighted and lots of interesting photos, I found my way around just fine. First, I found her own gorgeous online portfolio…
Wow Jana! She does these amazing wish lists for a Serbian magazine called Sensa that covers topics related to women’s beauty and health and the importance of having a healthy, happy life. I found it interesting that it’s actually under the umbrella of G&J here in Germany, a huge international magazine company. Wow! I have to get my hands on a copy of the September issue (can anyone help me? I will return the favor with a beautiful German magazine)… what a gorgeously designed mag! Can you get enough of this, wow? Again, blowing me away…
On Jana’s blog she highlights numerous products and movies that catch her eye as an art director. That’s how I found out about these Fruit Notes from Japanese company D-Bros. Sorry, I have no clue where you can buy them online but wow, they are definitely fresh & juicy. I would love an apple or pear near my phone.
Jana if you’re reading this you’ve inspired me so much! I feel a connection to your work despite never have met you. I’m sure those reading this do too. Just seeing these layouts makes me feel so refreshed because I often imagine things like this in my head but fail to see them in the magazines I read. You make the connection that I long for… warmth, spirituality and organic beauty combined. Lovely!

Mishy Lane recently left a comment on decor8 and so I clicked over as I do with all those who visit me here and discovered her blog, Mishy Lane Design. This talented lady is a graphic designer and photographer from Brisbane, Australia who specializes in custom invitations, logos, branding, portrait photography and stationery design. Here is a peek at some of her photography…
Her blog is filled with inspiring visuals that you’ll no doubt enjoying browsing today and well, everyday this week as she is the blog of the week on decor8. I hope you are inspired by her style as much as I do!

Good morning friends and happy Monday, though Mondays are never quite that happy are they? Well, I promise to make today and all week good days for you because I have lots of fantastic posts lined up for you here on the blog. First, I’m starting out with Heather Ross whom I wrote about just a few moments ago over at Real Simple (post here).
Heather is one amazing lady and I just love the details she paid attention to for while planning her recent wedding inspired by a children’s book. I was so inspired by her lovely wedding that I’ve decided to make her blog the blog of the week here so you’d be reminded to visit her throughout the week if she already isn’t on your regular list of blog reads.

Have you heard of the dreamy French blog, Souvenirs? It’s one of my favorites — particularly nice to follow on a lazy Sunday morning while still in your jammies drinking a cup of freshly brewed magic (tea, coffee, whatever your potion). It’s feminine and altogether lovely to sink into. If you need to escape today, or everyday, I highly suggest bookmarking Souvenirs. Here’s just a glimpse of what you can expect to find there on a regular basis.
French blogger, Chloe, is currently on holiday break until mid August so this gives you lots of time to catch up and linger without feeling like you’ll miss her latest post. Then upon her return, you’ll be all caught up and thirsty for more Souvenir deliciousness.
