SeaCloth

I’m seeing SeaCloth fabric everywhere lately, especially in some of my favorite magazines, so I thought I’d email the designers to see if they’d send us some images of their fabric and a few shots from their Greenwich, CT store. We all like to see products in action, am I right?!?

Partners Susan Harris, an accomplished fine artist, and Deirdre Halper, a former marketing exec, teamed up to create a line of textiles, home furnishings and decorative accessories known for their durability, gorgeous colors and nature-inspired patterns. Harvest Hue and Splash On are my two favorite collections (shown below), especially the lattice pattern. SeaCloth is available to the trade, so you’ll need a designer to assist you on your purchase, but if you’re around CT anytime soon, you can shop their store – no designer needed!

Bunny and Bee (20% off and free shipping for decor8 readers)

I heard from such a nice lady the other day, Jen from Bunny and Bee. Jen and her husband Faez once owned a shop in San Francisco’s Haight, but closed up to focus on hand printing designs for their online store. Specializing in clothing for tots, they recently expanded their collection to include pillows, totes, and cards. Since I don’t cover children’s clothing on decor8, I do cover home accessories, and I reallllly cover discounts, so keep reading…


If you’d like to support them and own some of their great products, they are offering decor8 readers a 20% discount and free U.S. shipping if you enter LOVEDECOR8 in the checkout comments. They will then give you an immediate Paypal rebate following your transaction, deducting 20% and shipping fees. How nice! Thank you for writing in, Jen and Faez. Best wishes on your new collection.

Rock Scissor Paper *New* Home Items

Do you remember this post from February? Update! Susie at Rock Scissor Paper contacted me yesterday to announce the launch of their new home collection, available on their website. With bright patterns in woodgrain, bird, raindrop, and forest motifs, how can you go wrong? And there’s even a free gift with purchase happening right now if you spend $40 or more before July 20th, they’ll pack your loot along with $15 of assorted products. Fun!


Thanks Susie for the update, and congratulations on the new collection.

re:makeables

There’s another cutie Japanese craft store online called re:makeables that I’m excited to share with you. Shop owner Amy stocks only a few lovely things at a time, like these buttons (there’s a flower bouquet project for you), and of course, the sweet little fabrics for crafty projects. Thanks Amy for letting us know about re:makeables, it’s adorable!
