New For Autumn/Winter 2014 From Bungalow

One company in Denmark that isn’t into the typical Danish look (marble, copper, natural wood, geometric prints, etc.) is Bungalow. They always stand out with their Indian-inspired patterning on pillows, tea towels, boxes, tablecloths, ornaments papers and more. Here is a glimpse at their Autumn/Winter 2014/15 collection. Some of these things really speak to me, especially their boxes and pencil cups. Big love for those up in here!

Look at their prints and patterns in the circles below… Ohhhh…

The Tweetable Birdcage

I want to show you guys this really cute birdcage/tabletop display thing-y. I really dig it. It is sorta perfect for social media addicts like most of us because it’s called the Tweetable Birdcage and with one glance, you’ll see why it is indeed tweetable. Designed by Alessandro Dubini, mine came from KOMDO.DO but I imagine if they don’t ship to where you live, you can find it in your country too if you google. This porcelain and metal birdcage isn’t really a cage for feathered friends at all but rather, to use as an unusual display peice. So you can put anything you want inside. Flowers in multiple vases, a fern or another plant, a group of succulents, prized possessions from the flea market, picture frames, food… Anything decorative that fits inside could be fun.

If you recognize this cage, it was displayed prominently in my new book, Decorate With Flowers, in the home of Bri Emery from Design Love Fest – it’s in a few photos on pages 122 and 123 in the Girly Glam section. Here is one below. After seeing it on her dining table, I just had to have it so KOMDO.DO and their PR agency hooked me up and I’m so glad they did because I didn’t realize I could get it here in Germany. Swoon and score! In my cage, I displayed something a bit unusual… straw flowers that I let dry. I snipped off the stems and just laid them on the bottom of the cage. I like it because you don’t really know what it is until you get a little closer and it’s quite unexpected and I like that sometimes, I’ve always liked to color outside of the lines I guess you could say.

7 Cool Brands For Baby Boys

I thought to quickly pop in this weekend to highlight 7 cool brands for baby boys to check out. Most of these shops have things for baby girls too but it seems like stuff for boys can be harder to find, at least cute stuff, so I want to write these posts from time-to-time to highlight brands I love and use. Here’s the first post I wrote with 5 brands for baby boys that was also super cute, so click here to check out that round up too.

babymocs

1. Baby mocs from Hubble and Duke. I have three pairs for Aidan (tan, mustard and gold) and he wore one out the other day and everyone who saw them thought they were the cutest. And they are. I LOVE these mocs sooo much. These shoes are decor8 tested and approved.

2. A cozy baby blanket (and all of the baby blankets) from Designed By Artists. I especially love that they are dated with the year of birth so I’ll cherish my blanket, And So The Adventure Begins 2014, for years to come. This blanket is decor8 tested and approved.

3. Zuzii footwear from Los Angeles in suedes and leathers. I know, more shoes. I can’t get enough.

4. Cool clothes from France by emile et ida– so cute! You can get there things here. I really like the little sweater with the mask on it.

5. Super cool trainers handmade in Spain from MAA. When Aidan is walking around I’m definitely picking up a pair for him because they’re just so unique.

petitbateau

6. Petit Bateau clothing from France, the iconic label that everyone loves. I have their sleep suits and some rompers and really like them. Clothing from Petit Bateau is decor8 tested and approved.

miniboden

7. Mini Boden. I had no clue that Boden had baby stuff until recently. I must order a few things for winter for little Aidan because I love their bright, happy colors and we need that during our gray days ahead. And c’mon, star patches on the knees? Super cute.

Do you have a baby boy (or toddler)? Where do you shop for him? Leave your links and tips below, I’d love to know!
