I love this Node bowl from Cake, it’s so pretty. Useful and elegant to display, available in white or chrome. You can purchase this at Joy in Newton (for the locals) or contact Cake directly for information on ordering.
The insula cup is another favorite of mine. It comes in snow white, kiwi green, sea blue, and salmon orange. I think having a cup of tea, without a handle, is a nice change. I also like that you can’t burn your little paws because it’s insulated with a double interior wall making it cool to the touch. Clever.
Cake. Would you like a piece?

Sale alert! Surfing bluefly last night, I spotted a pillow from Hable Construction for under $50. I clicked on it, and it was rather ugly so I didn’t think it was blogworthy enough to share with decor8 readers. However, a new day brought new hope.

My blogmate Brent (as I’m starting to call him a blogmate since he’s amazing), just sent me an email about bluefly adding 3 fab pillows to their site, and I had to post them asap because they’re quite cute. I’m not into pink or lilac, but you may adore them. I think the orange one is sweet.

The Hable Construction bright orange felted wool stripe 14×14 pillow is $59.99, marked down from $170, the pink felted wool stripe 14×14 pillow is $67.99 (was $170), and the lilac and ivory felted wool appliqu? 20 X 20 pillow is $79.99 (was $240). Killer deals. These will sell out fast, so if you like them, activate those links asap and grab your plastic pronto! I tell you one thing for certain, if bluefly adds any Hable pillows in blue or green, I’m all over it!

Finally, a Hable pillow you can afford!

Angela Adams Bedding

Have you heard that Angela Adams bedding is now being offered exclusively at Marshall Fields? Her bedding, bath and decorative accessories line kicked off on Jan. 15th, and it’s worth investigating. For now, there seems to be only one pattern, “Lulu”, but I’m sure more will follow.

Thanks Brent, a loyal decor8 reader in Minneapolis (aka our roving style reporter), for letting us know about Ms. Adams line. Brent also mentioned that out in Minneapolis, Lulu is on sale at Marshall Fields for 25% off and there is a coupon for an additional $25 off a purchase of $100 or more. That translates into the Lulu duvet costing an affordable $125!

Shop online for Angela Adams bedding. Her bath and decorative accessories should be available on soon!

And you thought the rugs were nice…
