I’m insanely attracted to the work of Steven Harrington. I would own everything he creates if I could. I especially want the peacock screenprint below, but I’m afraid he has sold out. The man just oozes with talent, I imagine he walks around with this amazing aura of positivity and bursting with energy. Look at these illustrations, and the colors, this is serious talent, people! I know I’m gushing, but sheesh… I’m smitten. These are the times when I wish an oxygen mask would pop down from the ceiling and save me. Deep breathe, Holly.

Textiles and wallpaper always make me happy. These are from Sandberg in Sweden. I love these images, and happy that wallpaper is still very much in vogue here in the states as well as in other parts of the world. It’s wonderful to see more and more pretty papers, and less fear of wallpaper overall. Prints and patterns are SO exciting!

I blogged about Nama Rococo last summer, but upon discovering their beefed up website, I had to mention them again because they are just so amazing. Look at these images, aren’t they divine? I love that something like this comes out of Massachusetts, of all places. Not Paris, Berlin, or London. I mean, New England? If you live here, you know exactly what I mean. It’s not exactly the land of the risk takers when it comes to interiors. But I’m thinking that time and fresh, new blood can shake things up a bit. We’ll see about that though. (Baby steps people.) For now, let’s just take time to enjoy Nama’s new website and these gorgeous images, shall we?

Alicia Bock photography captivates me. I love her style, composition, and color palette. Most of all, I love her eye, the ability she has to see something beautiful in things you may otherwise overlook as you’re out strolling around.
Her latest nature-inspired series, “Through the Viewfinder“, (above) is now available in her Etsy store. Soft, organic, each gives you that feeling of nostalgia, perhaps it’s how she captures the light. They have this vintage quality to them that I find so appealing.
All of her photos are magical; transporting you back to simpler times. Your 1st family trip to the amusement park, peering up at the massive ferris wheel, a mixture of excitement and fear because today was the day you’d ride it with your father (I speak from experience!). A wide open field where you ran until you collapsed with your first love, both of you promising ‘forever + ever’ as you tumbled and giggled beneath the summer sky.
You can visit Alicia’s blog or view her online portfolio on her website. I hope you enjoy her work as much I do. With notecards and photography priced between $3.50-24.00, and a few that are slightly higher, there is something for every budget.
Psst: She ships to international buyers, too!
Her work fits in so nicely with the naturalist look, doesn’t it?
