Hurry! Blue Bell Bazaar just posted some fabulous flea market finds in her etsy store that you’ll want to scoop up quickly since she usually sells out fast. These look like items you’d see on display in some of your favorite rooms in Domino magazine, don’t they? I want the parrot cage and all of her owl mugs!

Anthropologie has done it again. This season, they are dazzling me with this botancial beauty, the Josef Frank wingback. Mmmm.
I’m also a big fan of the Glass Menagerie glassware (they strangely remind me of Inke silhouettes) and this funky macrame-inspired jute doormat. It looks like something my mother would have owned back in the 70’s because she loved to macrame.
Although the chair is out of my league (it’s $2,500-), the price somewhat makes sense because Josef’s textiles are expensive off the bolt, I imagine half the expense of this chair is based on the fabric alone. I suggest purchasing the fabric alone from Svenskt Tenn (online, based in Sweden) and use it for smallish projects – cover a bench, seat, a fabric blind, etc. The linen shown on the chair above, Gr?na f?glar (does that mean green bird?), is $171- USD per meter. With tax and shipping to the states, one meter will cost you (gulp) around $338.00 USD. (Use this handy currency coverter as you’re shopping their site.) The prices shown are in Swedish Kroners. Maybe you can go in with a friend or two on a purchase and split the expense?

Do you remember Fernanda Bourlot, founder/designer of Simplemente Blanco in Boston’s South End? I interviewed her last summer for decor8 (click here to see that and to tour her studio). She showed her products at the NYIGF last week and sent in some stunning booth photos to share with decor8 readers. I love her style, and how she manages to make white so warm and inviting, especially in a tiny booth at a trade show! If you’re interested in her collection, please visit her website.
