Blog of the Week: Nectar & Light

Have you had a chance to glance over at the decor8 blog of the week, Nectar & Light? It’s a gorgeous photography blog by Fieryeyed Studio’s Jen Altman. She photographs bits of her world and combines them with other imagery that she loves, showing them on her blog and sharing them with the rest of us in her etsy shop. I love her soft filtered lighting, and I think her Polaroid prints are truly beautiful. To me, their grainy and blurred “imperfections” make them imperfectly perfect.


I hope you have a chance to visit Nectar & Light, it’s infused with so much beauty that I’m sure you’ll find it a real treasure.

Ferm Living {New for Spring}

Danish company Ferm Living just updated their website for Spring ’08 to include not only their wallpaper and vinyl decals, but some fantastic table linens, throw pillows, tea towels, paper goods, and bedding.

Remember seeing their beautiful wallpaper in Elle Decor last year?

What a stunning collection for Spring, great job Ferm! If you’d like to see their wallpaper in action, tour a beautiful San Francisco apartment belonging to their U.S. rep Christiana Coop right here on Apartment Therapy.

Psst: Vanessa De Vargas of Turquoise LA will host a very special event with Ferm Living… You can meet and mingle with them out in L.A. I’ll post complete details soon.

Stick Meon

Deanna wrote in from Stick Meon to show me some sweet wall decals. I’ve seen a lot of wall stickers since decor8 launched over two years ago, but this trend continues to press forward which leads me to think that it just may be around for a very long time.


I’m still hoping for the day when someone invents wallpaper decals for those renting property out there. But for now, even a renter has options with decals like the adorable ones from Stick Meon. Thank you Deanna for writing in!

DwellStudio Wall Art Collection {new}

Hot off the press! That’s right, DwellStudio has expanded beyond bedding, soft toys, and table linens. They’re going for room domination now as they’ve just added wall art to their nursery collection. How fun! These prints are pretty cute, it makes coordinating everything for the nursery so much easier for new parents if you’re into themes, that is. Some parents are, some aren’t. But in case you like this sort of thing, DwellStudio is your one stop shop for baby.


What’s next? Rugs? Tiles? Clothing? Diaper bags? Whatever they think of next, I’m sure it will be another big hit. It’s great to see them bringing their graphics to walls everywhere. Nice work, Dwell!
