New Happy Wallpaper + Decor From RICE

June 1, 2016

Can you believe products for the Autumn/Winter season are being introduced already? I can’t believe it’s already June 1 though, time is flying this year so far. My upcoming trip to Sweden will be here in just three weeks, I can’t wait! Do you have any travels scheduled for summer? So let’s talk about shopping. Available now in the United States (here), RICE in Denmark has just released these Autumn/Winter 2016 collection and I can’t wait to share some images to inspire you today. Including their amazing wallpaper. Oh my goodness you will die.

New Happy Wallpaper + Decor From RICE

I love so many of these sweet things, like the RICE party supplies, melamine plates and bowls for kids, and the new RICE wallpaper…. 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.

Kartell + Nendo For The Nursery

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…

Lovely Dutch Brand: Marie-Stella-Maris

May 30, 2016

I was just in the Netherlands this past weekend and came across Marie-Stella-Maris, a brand based out of Amsterdam that offers a lovely range of home products (candles, fragrance, etc.) along with skin care and gorgeous bottled waters. Their skin care products are supposed to be wonderful; I have to check them out for myself… I love their mission and their product packaging.

I came across OHMYHOME today and thought they’d be a lovely share for you to enjoy on this FriYay! I’m packing for a weekend trip away – going over to The Netherlands with a good friend, so it’s definitely going to be a nice few days away for me. What about you? Do you have plans too?

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…
