I Love You Blogs + Coffee

Jennifer Ramos from Made By Girl sent over a photo of her latest print, I love you blogs and coffee, and I thought that with the many blog readers out there that this may be quite a hit.

Claire Coles Design

I’ve been wanting to talk about my love for the very intricate work of Claire Coles for ages, but she was on so many blogs for so long that I thought I’d wait until the excitement settled before showing her work here. I was peeking in on her website this morning and came across new photos of her work – from bespoke stitched wallpaper to ceramics, prints and brooches Claire has been keeping busy! Aren’t these things just so beautiful?

Her fresh approach to wallpaper design combines vintage wallpapers stitched together to form beautiful things like birds, flowers and furniture and because her work is custom, clients can specify pattern, dimension and color. Some of her most recent commissions include wallpaper designs for Ted Baker and Oasis and textile designs for Anthropologie. Gorgeous!

Wingbug Wallpaper (Sweden)

I wrote all about Wingbug Wallpaper this morning over at Real Simple and I’ve included the price per roll so please check out that post for the details… but I have to give you a glimpse of how pretty these are.

Wow, right?! My favorite pattern is the Polypodium, in any color really, but the grayish/linen is my favorite I think. I want so badly to buy a few rolls and use it in either my kitchen or office when I move. It’s so clean and modern, understated, yet the pattern is “there” you know so it gives the wall a little interest. I can’t stop thinking about this wallpaper and how much I love it!

Slim Shelving

Love this. Marianne van Ooij wrote to me today to tell me about a product that she introduced this past May at the ICFF in New York called Slim Shelving. She’s a Dutch designer living in Brooklyn who studied design at the Royal Academy of Art in the Netherlands and at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. She wanted to develop a shelving system that allowed her to keep her favorite books in sight without taking up a lot of space so this wall system made of clear acrylic was the ultimate solution and is somewhat affordable ranging from $175-239 depending on the size that you select.

I love this idea and would like to own this — it’s really clever. I have so many pretty books and plan to look into how to order one of these for my office. Great idea, Marianne!
