Inhabit Living *New* Bedding + Lamps

Mike sent along news about the new bedding, canvas art, and lamp collection over at Inhabit Living and, as always, it’s gorgeous! To me, Inhabit is the perfect ‘solution’ bedding for couples that want a little bit of his masculine touch and her feminine side incorporated into the decor. It’s also very modern without appearing too cool; it’s not so super streamlined that it lacks personality. I love the coral motif and all the curves… Great work, Mike!

Oromono *new* Online Shop

Kirsty wrote in from Oromono to let us know the good news — her store is online and ready to accept orders! I’m not sure if you’re familiar with Oromono, but her 3D work using textiles is stunning; I actually first came in touch with them over a year ago while browsing Lekker and wrote about it here. Oromono ships almost anywhere, so if you see something you love online, chances are that Kirsty can send it to your home. I really love her rouging and pleating techniques…

Thank you Kirsty for the tip!

John Robshaw Textiles *New* for Spring ’07

If you’ve been keeping up with Beach Bungalow 8, our blog of the week, you’ll see that Megan has a huge crush on John Robshaw. She’s not alone. So do I. And if you thought the post showing the Brooklyn store, Layla, was an impressive display of Indian textiles, well visit John Robshaw. Crazy beautiful. Exotic, colorful, chic…

Most of us are familiar with Robshaw and his textiles since they’re featured in so many magazines, but have you peeked in on his Spring ’07 collection yet? Positively sumptuous.


I love to see designers that travel and collect inspiration from distant parts of the globe, then reinterpret those motifs to produce a modern version of a block print (for example), which Robshaw does by turning up the color to say, hot pink. Robshaw travels India and Southeast Asia for inspiration and goods, and although the colorways may be chic and modern, the ancient craftsmanship isn’t anything new — yet it’s still a theme of his work, hand-stitched and hand-printed textiles are what make his designs so appealing to me.


You can purchase some of his bedding for adults and babies over at auto or nonchalant mom. You can find some of his shower curtains online at Fine Linen and Bath.


Thanks to Cate and Allyson at John Robshaw for most of these images, much appreciated ladies!

Shanna Murray *New* Collection for May

Shanna Murray contacted me recently about her etsy store and I was so excited to see her new collection when I read, “Every month I celebrate the beauty of daily life, centering on a theme, with each new month and theme, a new set of designs will be here in the shop.” What an exciting store, I love the idea of work created according to a theme, rotating monthly.


This month, her shop is based on the May} to market theme. She just launched it today, so you have to take a peek. All materials used in her designs are organic and/or recycled (unless otherwise specified), which makes her collection that much more special. Coin purses, linen bags for market shopping, pillows, and the best part, the girl can take a good product shot. She should totally take photos for a living. Her collection of images are stunning. I love how delicate and precious her work appears, using linens combined with hand-stitching, it’s traditional materials used to create modern, clean designs. Something we all love to see.

Thank you Shanna for sharing your collection with us!
