The Framed Objects

I discovered these great wall objects from The over on Joy’s blog this morning and found the vase particularly fascinating. I’d love something like this on the wall in my kitchen for flowers as I find that kitchens can often lack that certain softness and charm due to all of the shiny, smooth surfaces…

the.

This is such a great vase and a fantastic idea — you could even use them in a row of 3 for a hallway or with two above and two below over a fireplace mantel. You could even put them on an office wall and instead of flowers, paint a bouquet of rulers or hand craft some flowers using pipe cleaners and fabric. Being creative at home is so much fun!

On another note, aren’t these anti-theft lunch bags a riot!? I love the things that The makes, they are so witty and fresh!

Ferm Living

This is product styling perfection in my book. It’s gorgeous. I love seeing wallpaper coming out of a typewriter — so unique. But then again, I’m not surprised as Ferm Living is one of the most inspirational home decor company out there today. Love them!

Ferm Living

Here are some more lovely shots from Ferm that I think are quite pretty, too. And look at all of these gorgeous knit vessels and gold and white cups and, and, AND! Just look already! :)

I can’t wait to wallpaper my new home, I’m definitely buying some rolls of paper from them and installing it in my bedroom and possibly in the entry or hallway, too. And when I’m finished, I will definitely share the results here on decor8.

Yum!

Elli Popp Wallpaper

I was so pleased when talented surface pattern designer Katja Behre from Elli Popp wrote in to share her latest neo-romantic wallpaper collection. I couldn’t wait to receive images from her to put on decor8 and since they just arrived last night, here are about 25,000 of them for you to enjoy along with me. :)

Pretty things so rock.

In addition to all of this gorgeous wallpaper, Katja designs ceramics and fabrics as well (yeah, can you say OMG along with me?). You can see some examples of her ceramics and pillows in the images above. I happen to have a few samples of her wallpaper and let me just say that in person, it’s even more gorgeous. I’m thinking that I may order some… I was excited to learn that Katja is German and her hometown is Hannover, where I live!

Psst: If you are in London next month, visit Katja at 100% Design, Stand C54 from the 23rd – 26th September in London@Earls Court.

Makelike: Cactus Love

How about a little more love for the Pacific Northwest today?! Makelike is a graphic design studio specializing in print, illustration, collateral, pattern and surface design. Oh, and a love for creating homewares! They are currently obsessed with cactus (and soon to turn their attention to a new collection focused on national forests) so they have created a collection of pillowcases, wallpaper, posters and tea towels to celebrate their spiky desert dwelling friends.
