Blickfang Design Fair Hamburg: Review

November 17, 2015

Want to see some fresh design that hasn’t been all over the web (yet)? Well, I had the pleasure of attending the Blickfang International Design Fair in Hamburg last Friday on opening day and found it to be so well done – beautifully curated and organized. Of course, the most important thing to me was whether or not the booths were interesting, would I like any of the designs, was anything looking new or fresh?

Blickfang Design Fair Hamburg: Review

I’m happy to report – yes and what a great show! Of course, you always see things that look like a designer was heavily influenced by something already on the market, but this fair was actually very original and interesting to attend because I found a lot of the designers had their own sense of style and certainly Continue Reading…

I’m happy to announce my next pop-up shop kicking off today until November 15th! The new designs by my friend Michal Marko from Micush in Tel Aviv are new favorites so I’ve decide to stock some of her new products for a limited time with free shipping worldwide.

You can see Michal in the photo above – she’s a young designer who got started in children’s illustration and has branched out to include illustration for home items. These smooth melamine trays are handmade from renewable forests in birch wood (the backs show the wood pattern) and are dishwasher safe. I hope that you’ll support this amazing artist from Israel (free shipping worldwide!) and check out her beautiful trays for eating and the kitchen.

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…

Ceramics By Robert Gordon Australia

July 24, 2015

I discovered a ceramics studio recently that has been active since 1945 in Australia by the same family —  Have you heard of Robert Gordon? They have a factory outside of Melbourne with a staff of 30 and have recently taken on an agent in the United States, too. They not only design pieces for everyday living, but work with restaurants to produce custom made pottery which made me think about my own cafe/design shop dreams and how wonderful it would be to have custom wares for it someday. Well imagine that. They recently did a fit out for E.P. in Los Angeles, so location and delivery is also not an issue so you don’t need to live down under to enjoy the fruits of their meticulously crafted labor.

Ceramics By Robert Gordon Australia

I recently spoke to Kate Gordon who is their head of design and product development, and learned that she has a textile design background but since she was always so involved in her family business of pottery, it was a natural fit to combine her ceramics knowledge with developing Continue Reading…

Our New Sofa From Fashion For Home

July 17, 2015

I can’t wait to show you the new little sofa in my living room that arrived from Berlin! It looks so sweet and acts as the perfect placeholder for the larger one I’m about to order for the opposite wall (I’ll put this baby elsewhere once it arrives). I’m in the process of renovating this room but for now, this little sofa looks so sweet. Later, it will go in another room since my apartment has enough room for it to move around – something I really love about living in this place other than the abundance of natural light. This darling sofa is the 2-Sitzer Sofa Tesoro from Fashion For Home in Hellgrau and I love it.
Our New Sofa From Fashion For Home

It’s comfortable, it’s stylish, the tufting is gorgeous and the quality is tops. The frame, made of wood, is also visible and quite gorgeous. I am so happy to have this piece of furniture in my home. It’s so hard to choose a sofa though, don’t you think? So many options and often, you aren’t Continue Reading…
