Light + Airy Basket Lighting From PET Lamp

June 8, 2016

In addition to my obsession with pillows, chairs and art, I am obsessed with lighting in all it’s forms. Candles, pendants, sconces, lamps… That’s why when I read about PET Lamp in German magazine Schöner Wohnen, I knew I had to share them with the rest of world who isn’t regularly tuning in to German mags. PET Lamp, based in Madrid, reinvent the way baskets are being used – and remakes them into amazing basket lamps that you will swoon for. Check this.

Aren’t they so light and airy and just drop dead stunning? I have basket lamps in my hallway (not by PET though) and love them. They throw the best patterned shadows onto the walls when illuminated too. Here are some more that caught my eye in different patterns and styles, including the next and final photo as shown in the always-inspiring location of Piet Hein Eek

Rosenthal Hot Spots Colorful Vases

June 8, 2016

Oh my goodness guys look at these HOT SPOT vases, coming soon from German porcelain giant Rosenthal. Designed by Christine Rathmann, a Frankfurt-based designer, these definitely don’t look like anything you’ve ever seen at Rosenthal. I have many of their vases, both vintage and new, in white and pastel tones but nothing like these…

They are stunning but I wouldn’t group them together like this. I’d have one in one room and by done with it. Or 3 of the same in 3 different sizes. Or, if I chickened out on the color and went with all white, I’d group 5 on a shelf. Continue Reading…

Whimsical Decor By Nathalie Lete

June 8, 2016

I’m a big fan of, and subscribe to, Milk Decoration magazine and love reading their website as often as I get a chance. I came by so many great stories there this morning over breakfast but one stood out because I’ve been getting press release after press release lately for Nathalie Lete. Milk covered her too so I thought I needed to share her latest work because apparently she’s all the rage – again!

I say again because she was big for awhile and then I didn’t see much from her for a period of time but that’s changed because now I’m hearing about her newest this and her latest that all of the time! Continue Reading…

Visit Maastricht To Shop + Eat + See Temporama

June 2, 2016

Would you like to travel with me? Today you can, we will shop + eat together! I just got back from Maastricht, one of the oldest cities in Holland known for its medieval-era architecture. I got to hit Temporama during opening weekend too, so I saw it before anyone else and it was great. More on Temporama later… But first of all, how are you? Are you doing good? Do you have any great plans for the first weekend of June? I will go to a music fest and see a few friends, and maybe go for a ride in the car through the countryside. And you? Okay, onto my tips… Let’s visit Maastricht together!

Visit Maastricht To Shop + Eat + See Temporama Festen

First off, Maastricht was a very pleasant surprise. A hidden gem. You always hear about Paris, London and Rome. Or Amsterdam, Berlin and Copenhagen. But Maastricht? Not really. Yet it’s beautiful! A shopper’s paradise too. I’d actually not heard of it until I was with my friend who lives near the border and told me that we could go over to the Netherlands while I visit here if I’d like. She suggested some shopping outlets Continue Reading…

They’ve collaborated with Eijffinger and have such cute papers for decorating your walls. The founder, Charlotte, happens to be a good friend of mine (her home was in my first book, Decorate, which is how we met) Continue Reading…

Kartell + Nendo For The Nursery

May 31, 2016

I was reading about the sweetest collaboration this morning over breakfast between Italian design giant Kartell and Japanese design firm, Nendo, lead by Oki Sato and I have to share it! I really love what they’ve done for the modern nursery and toddler room. Look at these sweet stools and rocking horses. Aren’t they just the best for a minimalist nursery decor? I particularly liked reading about the design process for the horse, which I’ve included below straight from Oki Sato himself.

Kartell + Nendo For The Nursery

About the rocking horse design, “The steel “H-beams” used in large structures such as skyscrapers and bridges are very strong and highly efficient. In cross-section they are shaped literally like an “H” and it is this characteristic that gives the structure its mechanical strength. By applying this concept directly to a child’s rocking horse, a form has been created that displays both function and strength, even with minimum use of materials. Transforming the use of this practical component into a different use with a sense of playfulness is the design process traceable to the history of the Kartell company. This company began by manufacturing and selling highly functional laboratory equipment and is now engaged in the manufacturing of beautiful plastic furniture and accessories admired around the world.” Form and function is, in this case, perfectly married in my eyes.

I love the smile seating shown above too. It’s so whimsical and happy! See the tops? HAPPY FACES! Yes! It’s like having emoticons under your butt. :) Whenever you see these stools you cannot help but smile.

Both the rocking horse and the seating will be available in January 2017. I just had to share them – super playful and I’d definitely add the seating to Aidan’s room in a flash. Anything that makes me smile, I’m in!!!!

Hope all is well…
