See you tomorrow!

It’s a holiday here in the states and most of us have off, so I decided not to blog and go on a date with my husband. We started off feasting on a delicious brunch out, then hit an afternoon matinee (Music and Lyrics), and finally wrapped things up in a nearby cafe lingering over cappuccino and dessert. I highly recommend date time with your husband, it’s fantastic. I’ll see everyone tomorrow, but until then, here are some excellent links for you to enjoy:

Irene’s informative and bookmark-worthy post about vintage ceramics over at Bloesem.

Stylish Danielle is spotting bright yellow as a trend over at the Style Files.

Domino magazine and their amazing “green” issue. It hit my mailbox over the weekend and I plan to dig in tonight. I heard some of their amazing eco-finds are online over on their website…

The March Country Living magazine is all about creating your own craft room and my favorite topic, “Turn Your Passions Into Profits”. The issue is devoted to women entrepreneurs and it’s just a terrific read. You can catch some of it online here. The rest you’ll need to see in the issue!

Victoria shares some of her favorite chick flicks.

Tomorrow is a HUGE day for Apartment Therapy as the Gillingham-Ryan family makes their debut on the Oprah show. The show is called, “Nate’s Small Space Miracle”. Don’t miss it! People are starting to post about the show on the Oprah website… I can’t wait to watch how the boards fill up post show! This is such great news for AT.

And meet a few new decor8 sponsors: Green Tea Design, Truche, Indie Fixx, Galleria Pangea, and Amy Burhoe.


And a bit of saving the best for last, don’t miss A Year Of Living Gorgeously, Paola’s new blog from Mirror Mirror. It seems to be a bit of everything delicious all rolled into one space.

See you tomorrow, February 20th with a special decor8 discount from an artist and designer we all love… Stay tuned!

Meesters & Van der Park (Netherlands)

Ooooo. Look what Irene, aka Bloesem, posted on her blog today. Images of works from Dutch designers Meesters & Van der Park, or Jo Meesters and Marije van der Park.

I first heard about them at Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven this past October, an amazing event that I attended with my partner in crime, Danielle from the Style Files. I went there to pull together images and a article for Domino magazine, which posted on their website last year, and to meet Danielle in person for the first time after being a penpal for quite some time. Anyway, if you have a moment today, flip through the Meesters & Van der Park portfolio. Innovative, extremely unique, and intelligent design in every way, shape, and form!

If you’re looking for their work, contact the Future Perfect in NY, or if you find yourself in the Netherlands anytime soon, click here for a list of retail shops. I’m so happy that Bloesem reminded me of them, Thanks Irene! I love having Bloesem and the Style Files to refer to, these Dutch girls always find the best stuff, I am forever amazed by both of these bloggers!
