I was speaking just this morning with a publicist based in Paris who reps interiors and contemporary crafts companies and she told me about a few of her clients, this post is about the first one: Les Invasions Ephemeres. (The post to follow will be about the second one.) I first wrote about Les Invasions Ephemeres a few years ago, if you recall, this Parisian company is owned by designers Sofia Antonovich and Pierre-Yves Toudic and they design decals. Here are a few of their latest decals that premiered at the Maison&Objet design fair in Paris today. You can stick them on anything, walls, pocket mirrors, tables…
Please take a look at their most creative website too… so dreamy and sweet.

Have you checked out Graham & Brown’s new wallpaper called Essence? I love how their publicist described it in her email to me this morning and since it’s such a nice description I think I’ll let her tell you about it… “Statement florals, soft shimmering trails and bold graphic stripes come together to create a collection that allows you to instantly revitalize a home. A truly sumptuous color palette introducing damson, crimson, taupe and sand alongside cream, duck egg and chocolate mixed with shimmering metallics offer both dramatic and subtle tones for a sophisticated backdrop.” Isn’t that such an inviting write-up? Now look at the photos and pick your favorite. I’ll tell you mine below… :)
Okay so have you picked a favorite? Mine is the second image because the flowers are whimsical and remind me of balloons and floating away… I imagine this paper in a bedroom on the wall behind the bed only to symbolize floating… as in, off to sleep. Which one do you fancy? Why?

Sorry to be such a tease… but this wall below is NOT the result of wall decals or wallpaper… and you can do something like this in your own home with a few stencils and some paper. Talk about a budget transformation!
You’ll need to visit this link for the good stuff though. :)

I saw this sweet shop featured earlier today over at the lovely Kind Over Matter blog and had to share… especially since I love bright uplifting messages as prints. The Happiness Is Handmade (so true!) print shown below along with all the others are from the Erin Jane Shop. Many more prints are available so you’ll have to visit her shop to see them all…
Illustrator Erin McNulty lives in Louisiana and maintains a blog in addition to her shop where she shares her latest work and inspirations. I love the green and white teapot above, very Kate Spade!
