Bostonian Seeks Kitchen Designer

decor8 reader and Boston local, Jeremy E., needs help renovating his kitchen. “I?m trying to find someone to help come up with a smart design for our modest-sized space, using IKEA cabinetry.” Jeremy writes. “Could you recommend someone who has experience with this kind of design work?”

If you specialize in kitchen design, and have experience with IKEA products (for the kitchen), oh and if you are local to Brookline, please contact Jeremy at Jae80 {at} Columbia {dot} edu.

Orla Kiely Wallpaper and Things…

So many scrumptious new products on the Orla Kiely website today… But the wallpaper, oh the wallpaper! Although there’s only 4 patterns to choose from, at least my favorite is one of them – Flower Blossom (top left). That would be gorgeous in a living room or bedroom. I imagine the others in a dining room or kitchen, don’t you?

I’m happy to see throw pillows and the new Linear Steam business bag (perfect size for a laptop) on the site as well as the fabulous blue wellies – boots I’d leave out to display in my entryway even when it’s not raining. I love the coffee cup pattern, it’s understated and just playful enough for me.

Charlyn Koo Art + Cards

A new collection of stylish stationery and art released under the name Charlyn Koo. California-based designers, Dorothy Teng and Mono Koo, design swirly serene works in a positively dreamy color palette. I love Autumn After the Rain. Lovely!
