Alicia Bock

Looking to dress your space with affordable + beautiful photography? Alicia Bock is your girl.

You can also shop her lovely selection of prints, vintage inspired glass magnets and jewelry with inspirational words like fly, live, and hope. etsy store. She has a great eye for color and design; I’m sure you’ll really like her work. Here’s her bio:

“I left my job in the non-profit health arena in 2003 to stay at home full time with my children, and to pursue my creative interests. My art is inspired by my daughter, Nehalem, and son, Jasper, who notice every bit of life. We spend our days daydreaming about the Oregon Coast, taking pictures and enjoying the wind on our faces. We have big plans for this next year and are excited to see what adventures the year brings!”

The coi print is a favorite of mine – love the dreamy colors!

W Hotel Shop!

The uber posh W Hotel now has an online shop so you can recreate the whole W experience at home. You don’t have to steal the towels anymore, come clean with these! I highly suggest their online music, although a modest selection, I give an experienced thumbs up since I own half of it in my own collection (tip: you’ll really enjoy the ultra chilled for nights when you’re entertaining and want to transform your home into an ultra chic lounge). More than music, you can shop for bedding and yummy accessories at the W store, too. You can never turn away cute boys for dinner, invite the salt and pepper men for only $15!

Having a less-than-creative day? Need a little design inspiration? Perk up! Your friends over at 2Modern can show you how to style your space right here. Make time to read their blog, too.

Not to miss…hot new 2Modern product must-sees include their new X-Rug Collection designed by Calle Henzel for HZL. These sizzlers are constructed of 100% New Zealand wool in funky patterns like Soho, Friday, Monday, Mood Discotheque, and my personal favorite for obvious reasons, Hollywood. Perfect for urban hipsters who want to stand out from the crowd, these rugs will spark many a conversation in your swank space.

Now that you’ve spruced up that floor of yours, your bed could use a little bang, too (no pun intended). 2Modern carries the new Inhabit bedding for Spring – fresh fresh fresh! Delicious mix of colors, I’m crazy about the lush cantaloupe orange with the cocoa shown below. Inhabit bedding is completely perfect for couples who like a mix of feminine and manly man, the best of both worlds! Clicky clicky!

psst… 2Modern offers free shipping on orders $50+

The Black Apple

Emily Martin from Athens Georgia is the girl behind The Black Apple, the same girl that obsessively buys domino, readymade, and any magazine that could potentially feature lovely wall decals (a disease for her!). She recently started reading decor8 and told me about her wares on etsy.

Emily has the cutest etsy store ever, almost exclusively painting + prints. I love the colors, the faces, it’s like peering into a story book. As she describes it, “it is a bit in the low-brow illustration realm, children’s books, 60’s & 70’s pop art…it’s a mishmash!”

I think it’s pretty cute and thought you’d like to check it out. Love the big green eyes below!
