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!

Henry Road *New* Spring Pillows

Henry Road has some colorful, very bold poppy pillows and some happy summertime bags… Just calling your name for Spring 2007!

And although it’s a not a new Henry Road pillow, I’m still a big fan of their blue/white circles print. It’s so timeless, though the geometric prints are totally hot right now, making them that much more appealing… Especially a bold hue combined with white. Remember our Trina Turk inspiration – blue + white or chocolate + white? Now see these babies below? Yup. Perfectly on trend.


Oh, and don’t miss Paula and her company, Henry Road, in this month’s (April) issue of Cottage Living. I was browsing it just yesterday at Barnes + Noble and was so happy when I saw Paula inside. Here’s a glimpse. And congrats, Paula! Thank you for writing to me as well, it means so much when a designer sends me a tip — I really appreciate it.
