By Nord: Nordic Inspired Interiors

Who isn’t inspired by nature, it’s one of the most common answers when a designer speaks of their inspirations. And how can nature NOT be inspiring… it’s all around us, completely free of charge, transporting, uplifting, and in harmony nature does what it does so well. That’s why when Danielle sent out an email to friends of her shop today about By Nord, I had to show you this Danish label that she now stocks. Danielle has such gorgeous taste, so I always know that if she takes on a new line that is must be stylish, modern, simple and nature-inspired. You can find lots of pretty pillows and duvets in Le Souk right here and big plus — she ships worldwide!

By Nord was founded by graphic designer Hanne Berzant and fashion designer Hanne Louise Roe Andersen. These two friends are inspired by Nordic nature which is quite evident in their work. But beyond being stylish, what I personally enjoy is that this design is really taking that traditional cabin and lodge design up a notch to a more modern, sophisticated feel. I love rustic modern when it’s done right and this is so, soooo right. I also appreciate the marrying of feminine and masculine design elements. What man would bark at his wife for wanting to add a wolf pillow to the sofa accompanied by a lovely floral one? See my point?

Lovely new add to Le Souk, Danielle!

Freddy & Ma Custom Handbags, Pillows and More!

I’ve talked about Freddy & Ma before but I was recently reminded of their work and thought I’d show you some of their latest patterns and colors… oh and laptop sleeves (I’m dying to get my hands on one). I love seeing the work of Brooklyn artist Samantha Hahn on some of their pillows, I dig her design aesthetic so I think I’d own all of her pillows if I could fit them onto my sofa. :)

Aren’t these just lovely? You can customize plates, pillows, whatever you’d like using these fun tool on their site. They have a bevy of patterns to select from, and the pillows come in three sizes. I’m considering placing an order myself, I can never have too many cushions! Have fun playing on their website…
