Anthropologie Now Ships International!

FYI — Quick update intended for my non-U.S. friends, Anthropologie just adopted the international shipping solution FiftyOne to allow you to easily shop from and ship to 34 countries including the Netherlands, UK, Germany, and Sweden! Yay! Details here.

And if you’ve always wanted the Cleo Chair or the Neptune chair, get them now because they’ve just been marked down by 50%

… Have a great weekend!

Have a Great Long Weekend!

Monday is a holiday here in the states, and I’m taking Tuesday off to work on a few projects, but I’ll be back blogging on decor8 Wednesday, February 20th. I’ve included lots of links below to keep you busy until then.


There’s so much I don’t want you to miss out on until 2/20, so here’s a list:

Swedish blogger Emma has covered the Stockholm Furniture Fair so please visit her blog for complete coverage, trend spotting, and more. Great stuff Emma.

A beautiful loft in Paris to take you away…

A fabulous chandelier to shed some light (and empty your wallet).

Vintage maps from After Noah.

New Freshcut Pink books from Rag + Bone. Great as inspiration or art journals. And don’t miss the amazing Jim Deneven. Wow, now there’s a new medium for ya.

Rasta floor cushions and an industrial-style clock that is super unique.

Amy Butler’s Sew Inspiring Contest over at Craft: magazine (stay tuned for a decor8/Amy Butler contest in April!)

A stationery sale that will make you see Stripes.

Tour the home of Christiana Coop of Ferm Living (great job, A-M!).

A lovely Flickr group dedicated to still life photography.

Nectar & Light for inspiration (just lovely).

Karlsson lights that I want to know more about.

Creative way to display plates for a little DIY this weekend.

Fabulous online scheduling.

Beautiful Shweshwe fabric from South Africa.

Pupe Girl is a strange but cute little website for making adorable Japanese versions of yourself. Burns hours so beware.

This new tool called Animoto to show your craft creations online. To music. MTV style.

A grey flannel mannequin photo sent to me by artist Amy Gross after she read this.

decor8 press: Thank you Real Simple and Selvedge magazine! Also thanks to Cookie for a little mention here and to Amy at Blogged for rating decor8 a 9.5 because well, that’s not too shabby.

mydeco {beta}

Want to play virtual designer today? Reader Graham wrote in about mydeco, a new UK website that recently launched (beta version) all about decorating with features that include searching retailers, plan a room, buy the look, even some informative articles on topics like the physiological effects of color (does my living room make me look fat?) and floral arranging.


The site is a little clunky because it’s soooo new but I can see where they’re going with it and the potential is huge. Check it out! And thank you Graham for the tip. :)

Viva Terra {eco finds for spring}

I really adore all the new things (and a few of the older ones) at Viva Terra, our eco-friendly spot on the web that I enjoy for its natural and modern aesthetic. Here are some things that I’ve got my eyes on and look! Moroccan wedding quilts! Someone finally carries them online in America. Although nothing will ever replace my quilt from Maryam in Marrakesh… But for those of you that would like to own one, here’s your chance.

Vine mirror, Mexican hand-embroidered organic cotton
rabbit bag, Moroccan Wedding quilt, and a Leafy linen throw pillow.

Here’s a wedding quilt in a guest suite at the Parker Palm Springs
designed by Jonathan Adler. A nice example of how versatile this piece is.

Railroad Tie Bookshelves are perfect for adding vintage charm to your home.

And this bookcase is very much like the Viva Terra railroad tie bookcase only here it is shown in the home of reader Mari Erikkson in Sweden. You can tour her home here.

Three Trees platter set, porcelain Night Owl lamp, fern clock, and a nice way to display your favorite blankets — a tall white bamboo ladder.
