A Giveaway With Atelier Sukha (Updated)

June 18, 2016

I love to decorate, especially with natural fibers like wood, wool, leather and linen. As a lover of Bohemian Style, Botanical Style and the whole Simple Living / Kinfolk  movement, I find Atelier Sukha a beautiful blend of all three to create a distinct global, yet paired back look that feels closest to the way I’d love to live (add to it, a beachfront house!). Sukha is a famous shop known globally as a must-see destination by decor enthusiasts when visiting Amsterdam, yet I was surprised to learn that their online shop isn’t nearly as well known so I thought to team up with them to help them spread the word about their shop. The best way was for me to just open up a flash giveaway on my blog so some lucky person out there could have a chance at winning free beautiful things (your pick up to €150) from their online shop. Then you can bring this handmade, pure and simple style to your home too.

A Giveaway With Atelier Sukha (Updated)

A Giveaway With Atelier Sukha (Updated)To enter*, you need to do the following:

1. Comment below and tell us what you would like to have on the Sukha website.

2. Follow @decor8 and @ateliersukha on Instagram.

When a winner is selected, we will verify the above before announcing.

*This giveaway is open to readers located worldwide. €150 approximate $170 USD total value per winner. Do not leave your email or web address in the body of the comment, only in the allotted boxes. Our winner will be contacted by email and announced at the bottom of this post. Contest closes on Monday, June 20 at 5pm European Standard Time.

Good luck everyone!

Winner is: Julia/mammilade. Congratulations!

Win $500 Gift Card From Pottery Barn + Ken Fulk

September 9, 2015

Would you like to win a $500 gift card from Pottery Barn and see a Autumn dinner party that I put together to celebrate their new Ken Fulk collection? As a design writer, I come across many beautiful products yet Pottery Barn is one American retailer that I return to when seeking beautiful, approachable and quality pieces for my home. I’ve been shopping them since I was in college because they are one of the best sources for creating stunning interiors. As Autumn nears, I’m dreaming up some tabletop ideas for the gatherings that I’ll host… That is why when Pottery Barn teamed up with San Francisco-based designer Ken Fulk, I had to see what he was designing for them. This is their exclusive, first ever product collaboration so it’s a pretty big deal for Pottery Barn fans and those who love Ken Fulk because they can bring a high-end decorator’s touch to their home without breaking the bank. Here is a glimpse…

Win $500 Gift Card From Pottery Barn + Ken Fulk

This exclusive line is so well-edited that you can mix and match without worry that items won’t work together because they all match beautifully. In addition to tabletop, you will find furniture, lighting, soft furnishings and so much more. I have my eye on the tailored bed skirt and the orange lacquer boxes because they are so chic. To show you a few items from this collection in my home, I’ve dressed my recent dinner party with the Ken Fulk painted canvas table runner, painted canvas placemats and spoon straws for our gin & tonic bar. I love the heavy deep blue/black canvas of the runner and placemats and that the off-white color that mimics sea salt – pure (not creamy) but also not pure white – And I enjoy how well they work in my very light and bright home, the contrast is just great and illustrates how well his collection works in a variety of interiors.

Win $500 Gift Card From Pottery Barn + Ken Fulk

Known for his exuberant style, Ken Fulk is an American decorator and event designer from Virginia with a staff of nearly 50 headquartered in San Francisco, California where he lives and works. He designs for hot spots and for high profile clients which is why his collaboration with Pottery Barn is so special – it’s his signature style but available to all budgets. His signature style is a mix of European (English countryside mixed with Paris townhouse) combined with classic American Federal style so there are nods of his European Continue Reading…

WIN! New Farrow & Ball Wallpaper

February 2, 2015

I’m such a fan of Farrow & Ball and I’ve really enjoyed working with them on campaigns over the years. As most of you know, I turn away work frequently because I don’t work with just any interiors brand unless I really love and support what they do. Farrow & Ball is just a great company and they produce beautiful wallpaper and paint. Exquisite really. Half of the rooms in my home have F&B paints. I love their chalky, matte finish and gorgeous hues and that I’m not the only one in love… But that everyone who sees my home raves over the green-blue, very pale paint color in the nursery (Cabbage White) and my gorgeous gray in my dining room (Dimpse) that looks amazing against bright white trim work. Gray and blue-green paint colors are really hard to get right, as any decorator knows, so when you find a paint company that creates such perfect hues you become very brand loyal. Here are some of their patterns from previous collections…

Their wallpaper looks stunning and works perfectly with their paints. I’ve not yet used their wallpapers, but dream of someday papering a wall in my home with one – for instance the wall behind my sofa in the living room. The wall is so big, so boring, so meh. I love the large-scale patterns in the new F&B 2015 collection. All of their papers are a more modern version of the vintage papers you see in old French and English homes – oh how much I love those! Here are some views of their new collection below, hot off the press!
