Fabricate Design

July 21, 2006

Fabricate Design
I just discovered the cutest design girls from Atlanta, Cassi and Brandy, via My Space (of all places!); it seems they’re making their way around the design blog circuit (yeah!), so I figured I’d show them a little blog love, too. Sure, Fabricate Design creates lovely pillows and tees, but extra love should be shown because these girls not only are best friends doing their own thing, but they are young and just getting started, so big love to the indie set! Who knows, they may be the next Hable or Judy Ross in the years ahead… And for only $32-35 per pillow, I’m sure you can’t resist these perky prints – so fun and totally affordable. The rainbow bunches pillows are my personal favorites – the swirly design reminds me of the motown fabulous show I watched as a kid, The Electric Company.

Tray 6 – Stylish Umbrellas For Design Geeks (like us!)

July 21, 2006

Tray 6 - Stylish Umbrellas For Design Geeks (like us!)
Outside of Orla Kiely umbrellas (love the ones from the Tate), not many umbrellas on the market appeal to my sense of style. I can’t handle basic black (rain is sometimes dreary enough) and I don’t do red or bright blue, and certainly not rubber ducky yellow or houndstooth, so where does that leave a girl? Try shopping Tray 6. Stylish, affordable, and downright pretty umbrellas that will have you twirling around cobblestone streets singing your happy self into a coma. Well, perhaps not – but I’m sure you’ll at least enjoy having an umbrella that makes your day a little bit brighter…

Hot New Book: The Global Shopper by Nicole Hopkinson

July 21, 2006

Hot New Book: The Global Shopper by Nicole Hopkinson
The release of The Global Shopper published by Hardie Grant, has me giddy with excitement because I love nothing more than to come across online stores in other parts of the world. This is one title that decor8 readers must get their hands on, el pronto! Written by Aussie, Nicole Hopkinson, the book just released this month and is quite hard to come by, so here’s the ISBN so you can google it (1740664051). I found a copy last night on the Canadian amazon site, but I didn’t see it on the US site. Anyway, the book claims to be an informative guide to the best websites around the globe for those who love to shop online for unique items. Nicole has scoured the globe to find the BEST sites for items to furnish and decorate your home. I can’t wait to get my little paws on this book, and when I do, I’ll be sure to post whatever gems I can extract from it for decor8 readers!

El Burro - Fresh Finds under $50
Bargain Shopping exists! Yes, really. El Burro has modern goodies for the home, in fact everything shown are priced under $50! Grab a package of 48 disposable paper diner scenes placemats for only $20. The translucent blister lamp for $43 (great buy!), a fun tp holder shaped like a clothes hanger for $7.50 (yes, really), and my favorite, the on/off light for $7.50. When the lights are off, innocent and fanciful depictions of events and places are shown. When the lights are on, a whole new meaning unfolds when new images appear. Sold as a simple lightshade, just wrap it around any plug and cord set (Sold at IKEA or Target) and you’re space has a fresh new light source. Purchase more than one and swap them out frequently for a touch of whimsy in your home. The on/off light would be so cute in a work space, don’t you think?

Elizabeth Schuppe – New Paintings!

July 21, 2006

Elizabeth Schuppe - New Paintings!
Elizabeth let me know that she has some new paintings available, so act quickly because her work is in demand. The very talented Ms. Schuppe is churning out some real beauties, I love the painting above because it adds warmth with the cocoa and yellow; the lower half of the painting almost looks like a city skyline to me, don’t you think? You may recall Elizabeth’s work above Lena Corwin’s sofa on page 275 of Glamour magazine, March 2006 issue. If not, you can view it here from a previous write-up about Lena on decor8.

I heart Elizabeth’s paintings – with gorgeous abstract strokes and perfect hues, they transport me to a magical place where everything is calm, yet cheerful and positive. Are you a Schuppe fan, too?

Pink Loves Brown: Silhouette Framed Prints!
I know I’ve written about Pink Loves Brown before, but after getting a little press love from Shop, Etc., I had to talk about them again because I just love the silhouette prints that Shop, Etc. featured. You can order the set of two framed silhouette prints (shown in the August 2006 issue) directly from Pink Loves Brown… Don’t you just love them? So sweet…
