PIP Studio

Pip, pip, hurray! I briefly mentioned PIP Studio on Monday when I shared a fun folksy notebook I picked up from the local stationery shop. I’m so glad that I took the time to click around on the PIP website because I found a bunch of beautiful products — PIP Studio is more than paper goods that is for sure! Bold saturated patterned wallpaper in feminine florals (sold by Eijffinger), school supplies, bedding, porcelain, handbags, etc. YUM!

The lady behind PIP is Dutch product designer Catharina who has had the nickname PIP since childhood and who obviously loves red, blue, lace, and fun decorative interiors! If you live in Germany you can go to eBay.de and find tons of lovely PIP Studio things for your home (click here to see). I’m not sure where they are sold in America or elsewhere, but if you write to Catharina or sign up for her newsletter I’m sure you can find out. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before Anthropologie picks up some PIP things…









These rooms are so playful and bright. Who wouldn’t be happy surrounded by all this pattern and color — this is definitely anti-depressive living!

Weekend Reading

I felt like doing a little weekend blogging about bedroom decorating, a fabulous light, and a few thoughts on wooden spoons and white china. Perhaps you’d be interested in reading my thoughts? I’ve linked each post below…

I hope you are having a lovely weekend! It’s cold and rainy here in New Hampshire, but I did have a little visitor in my backyard today when the rain stopped that I enjoyed watching. So cute. One reason why, despite how rural it is here, the country still continues to hold a special place in my heart…

Frank

Let’s be Frank, or shall I say let’s meet Frank, an online shop specializing in work created by independent British designers, a delightful mix ranging from ceramics to pillows and art. It’s quite obvious that a great talent runs this very special shop because everything is exquisite, from the site design to the bounty of creative work. Frank is impressive.


Sukie, Vicky Hageman, Poppy Treffry tea cosies, Hannah Turner Ceramics, notebooks by Angie Lewin, more paper goods by Kim Jenkins, Twee As Can Be Sewing Buddy sewing kits, Laura McCafferty prints, and Julie Arkell’s paper mache dolls are just a few of my favorites.

It’s so refreshing to catch a glimpse of what the British indie design scene is up to lately. I’m dying to visit a craft fair in England someday, I’ve only visited flea markets so I hope to check out something like Origin or Top Drawer in the near future. Have you attended either of these two craft fairs and if so, would you suggest one over the other or something totally different? I may try to visit London in the Fall…
