Foster’s

I recently discovered a fun little store called Foster’s that I think you’ll fancy. With a retail space in Philly, and online shopping for the rest of us, I’ve selected a few fresh finds that made me smile, like the beer bands (forget wine tags!) and the voodoo doll toothpick holder (ouch!). Surf Foster’s and see if you can find any others that appeal to you!

I’m off for a meeting until 2 p.m. EST, so I won’t be posting again until late afternoon. I’ll be back with a few more fresh finds later today, so stay tuned, design addicts!

beer bands, $6.50

hotheads silicon pot holders in dog or frog styles, $10.50

what a dish quilt in ecru (shown in top photo) or red (below), $42 + up

Bev Hisey

Bev Hisey, fashion designer turned textile designer, is a notable Canadian designer who specializes in modern home accessories. Modern, but not stiff. Playful, but not over-the-top. Her line is best known for combining unexpected colors + textures resulting in a whimsical touch for your modern space. Rectiliear or curvaceous interlocking patterns. Hand-screened. Die-cut botanical pattern leather. 3-D flower lumbar cushions. See what I mean?

You can shop for Bev Hisey online at UMA, or refer to her website for store locations nearest to you.

Some of my favorites include her wool runners, panels, pillows, and lighting shown below. Splendid!

Simplemente Blanco

Fresh air. Sunshine. White.

Boston based Designer, Fernanda Bourlot, is at it again with a new line of men?s bedding added to her Simplemente Blanco collection. The lovely and simplistic collection of sheets, blankets, pillows, and pillow cases can be deliciously yours in colors like rich chocolate brown and dreamy pale sand with accents of tweed, wool, suede, and my favorite, leather. Fernanda also brings you organic inspired items for eating, bathing, sleeping, gardening, personal accessories, even decorating and floral arranging services!

Located at 46 Waltham Street, Studio 203, Simplemente Blanco is open on Tuesdays & Fridays from noon – 5:30 p.m. or by appointment.

Here are some of my fresh finds: a cuddly blanket, unique napkin rings, cozy sheets, and a simply elegant handbag. Keep in simple, sister.

coffee + cre8tive [feb 15 '06]

Inspiration of the day from the lovely Karin Eriksson site. Romance is still in the air.

Reflect on it. What do you see? How does it make you feel? I see Paris in the springtime. People watching at a cafe. On my way to a museum.
