Love is Blind @ Bodie and Fou

Love is Blind is a team of two British talents, product designer Patrick Laing and fashion textiles designer Abi Williams. I love their new collection of blinds, so unique and definitely more interesting that the standard white ones we see here in America at Home Depot’s everywhere. There are currently 7 designs total (“hand show” is not shown), but I feel mostly drawn to 2 of designs – the tree, perfect for those in the city who may not look out and see as many as they’d like, and of course I love the plants because I think the color and pattern is fabulous, especially for a kitchen. You can find the blind collection from Love is Blind exclusively at Bodie and Fou online.

Alena Hennessy *New* Additions!

Fresh from Alena Hennessey’s studio, comes pretty woven pillows, tapestries, and totes in addition to her already solid collection of paintings, apparel, and sculpted birds in flight. I love the new horse pillows and totes – so nice to see something a bit different as far as motifs go… And who doesn’t love a beautiful horse?

Alena is not only talented, but she is very attentive and caring, and every experience with her is as special as the things she makes. Here are some images of her latest, or if you’d like to place an order, click here for more information.
