Gum Drop Pillow DIY

I was so pleased this week when Belinda, the web editor of Real Living magazine sent word from Australia that she made a gum drop pillow for her son’s bedroom. Of course, she used the oh-so-popular Amy Butler pattern and she did such a lovely job… But she mixed things up a bit and opted to use a giraffe print and it came out really great. I have to show you.


Isn’t this great? Read more here. Thanks Belinda for sharing this with us. Looks like a fun weekend project, don’t you think?

Mystic Valley Traders {bedding}

I’m asked quite often for bedding help so I thought you may like to add another resource to your list that I just found in Country Living magazine last night (the benefits of being sick is that you get to do lots of reading in bed with zero guilt).

A little country meets modern, Mystic Valley Traders carries a range of organic bedding to add some beauty to that boudoir, my favorite is the Turtle Bay collection.

More bedding sources here.

Binth *new*

Binth just released some new items for Spring, but this time we’re not seeing soft blues and yellows, it’s all about strong graphical patterns in blue, black, and red. Pillows, cards, prints, etc.


What do you think?

Bonjour Mon Coussin

Leave it up to the French to consistently produce the most creative products… Claire Eglizeaud and Paul Moreau are stylists and graphic designers who formed the company Bonjour Mon Coussin in 2007 creating pillows and things for the home. Everything from nesting dolls to stilettos, toys, tickets, and the eiffel tower has a part in their pillow collection. These really fit that whole boho modern look that’s so hot right now.


An English version of their website is soon to come so for now you’ll have to practice your French, however if you would like details or to make a purchase you can contact them directly (contact AT bonjourmoncoussin.com). I’m sure Claire and Paul would be more than happy to assist you. {via Design Milk}.
