Hadley Hutton: Fine Art + Illustration

With so many gorgeous ethnic fabrics out there, why limit yourself to bedding and curtains when you can bring color and beauty to your walls with works from Hadley Hutton?


Her prints and paintings are a gorgeous complement to the dreamy textiles we are all so crazy about now, Robshaw, Cassill, Ireland, Guild… And after visiting Layla over the weekend, then spotting Hadley Hutton’s work on the etsy homepage last night, I can’t help but think how beautiful the two would be merged together. Hadley’s art would complement a space filled with ethnic prints in apple green, hot pink, lemon yellow, turquoise… Maybe a charcoal or white sofa with pillows from Designer’s Guild (US) and a few Hadley paintings nearby?

A gorgeous room from Domino magazine, the perfect space for a Hadley print, don’t you think?



I love seeing all these pretty things living together, great energy and nearly impossible to feel sad in a home decorated in such happy hues!

Happy Monday everyone!

Grace & Go: *New* Homewares from London

I love hearing about new products, it’s my fuel for the day and one of the best things about blogging — sharing the good news the second it hits my inbox. Jen Bowmast, a London transplant from New Zealand, is the designer behind the new homewares and accessories line, Grace & Go. She wrote in about her charming vintage-inspired designs in mostly black and white, and I think the bold blooms and the mid century chair silhouettes (love these tea towels and pillows), are pretty neat. I know so many of you that are into mid century modern, so I’m sure you’ll love this stuff.

Thanks Jen for telling us about your new line, loads of success to you!

Purl Soho – *New* Denyse Schmidt Fabrics

My wheels started turning when I read on the Purl blog that they now carry Denyse Schmidt‘s latest fabrics, a collection called Katie Jump Rope. Can’t you just imagine all the pretty things that could result from a these? I love the Sunflower Bows and the Allure Diamond. And did know that Purl not only offers these by the yard for $9, but also grouped in these great bundles for $90. You can create dolls, a full-sized quilt, trim the edges of a solid color blanket, make cafe curtains, cover a cork board, even add a trim on solid curtains, perhaps 12″ of your favorite pattern along the very bottom of a solid panel.


Hmm. Now your wheels are turning, aren’t they?

Design Is Mine + Jenna Rose

Summer Allen-Gibson sent over an announcement about her new blog, Design is Mine. Summer is a Jill-of-all-trades from Portland, Oregon that loves her creative city and enjoys sharing what inspires her through blogging, much like the rest of us, yet with her own unique voice and spin on things. As I looked it over, I discovered Jenna Rose, a Canadian accessories designer that makes some pretty neat things – I really like the ottomans, very fresh!


Thank you Summer for writing in, nice to know you’re out there and welcome to our great, big blogging community! :)
