Missoni Home at Neiman Marcus

Color, color, color! Bold Missoni takes fashion to another level constantly, so why not the home? And with the stitch pattern being as fabulous as it is, how can you resist?


Neiman Marcus carries the Missoni collection, and although some of it is way out of my reach, the bedding is somewhat affordable, especially if you layer pieces in with budget finds from other stores. You can dress a bed using mostly finds elsewhere that are inexpensive, add a few Missoni shams and a throw at the foot of the bed, and you’ve given your bedroom a fashion makeover without purchasing 100% from this collection.


I do have one question though. Why are their candles priced between $275-375? Am I missing something here?

Lost Bird Found: Free Offer for decor8 Readers

I’m excited that Boston local, Sara Jensen from Lost Bird Found, wrote in to extend an offer exclusively to decor8 readers. If you feel so inclined to shop her store between now and May 1st, you’re in for a treat. When you purchase 1 yard (or more) of the lovely pomegranate fabric (cotton or canvas), she’ll include a free pocket bag ($14 value) with your order. Simply type “decor8″ in the message box when you’re making payment and viola! done!


Thanks, Sara!

Emma Jeff Window Decals from Surface Material Design

Emma Jeffs recently wrote to me to share her latest window decals with decor8 readers. I think they’re quite pretty, as well as a clever, modern solution for allowing in the light while still maintaining a level of privacy (from the outside, a passerby can only see a diffused shape if an internal light is on). Application is fairly painless, it’s easy to clean, and I love all the geometric patterns that she creates, like the clover, delphi, otto, and orba (shown).


If you’d like to order from Emma, simply visit her website, she’ll be happy to help you out. In the US, you can order many of these online via 2Jane.

Thanks, Emma!

Mibo’s Online Store – Now Open!

Just in for Mibo fans living in the UK…You can now shop Mibo online via their website for wallpaper, tea towels, ceramics, lamps, totes, and pillows.


For the rest of us, we’ll need to check their stocklists to see where they’re offered in our local hood. Design Public carries their wares online here in the states… Here’s a glimpse of a few of their things in case you’ve not heard of them already. And because I like to show products in an actual space (vs. floating solo here online), here’s a few magazine shots and a view of their pendant living in a dining room.


Mibo shade, far left. Love the base they put it on, very nice mix of modern meets traditional.

The stylish Mibo pendant works well with Danish modern furnishings via Design Public online.

Two Mibo pillows, can you guess which ones?

Thanks for the headsup, Madeline!
