Inspirations this week...

This week I'm inspired by these wonderfully graphic postcards I received from Sabine all the way from Denmark. Love the colors, layers, and mix of images...


Cool Shop: Michele Varian

Michele Varian's pillows are favorites of the Lucky & Domino editors. For those of you in New York, her shop is super cool...decked out with her line of colorfully modern & chic pillows, as well as goods from other designers. Here's a sneak peek at Michele Varian's new Spring Collection & her fab store below...



Thanks to a bomb ass tip from Mariana, I'm happy to tell you all the Luella Bartley collection at Target is now available! A lot of items are already online even though it doesn't hit stores till February 1st. Some of the items won't ship out for a few weeks, but can all be pre-ordered. Here are some of my favorites...

{Also, see Glam's coverage of the Luella line here.}

We're less than a week away...

from Olympus Fashion Week! I love seeing what the tent looks like every season. Since I'm no longer in New York, that becomes more difficult...but here's a sneak preview of the tent styling this season...covered with prints from Carmen Marc Valvo (mosiac print), Diane von Furstenberg (blue branch print), Milly by Michelle Smith (black & white print), Tibi’s Amy Smilovic (rainbow print), and Heatherette designers Richie Rich and Traver Raines (not shown). All of the patterns from the selected designers will appear in their Fall collections as well as all over the tents, media, and surrounding areas of Bryant Park.

New Blog: Sabine Brandt

I'm loving Sabine Brandt's new blog. It's filled with gorgeous finds of art, craft, and graphic design. Located in Denmark, turn to Sabine's blog for colorful & soothing inspiration via lovely vintage images, prints, and found & handmade goodies...


Super Cool Shop: Rosanna

I can't take any credit for being one of the first people to discover the super cute tableware shop Rosanna, as Katie and Holly have recently posted their Rosanna faves. But this shop is really too great not to mention. Located in Seattle (I REALLY need to get myself to Seattle) the storefront shop carries an array of fine tableware...with a touch of added whimsy and grandma-chic! The Rosanna online store is a great replacement for the actual shop--with it's whimsical sketched borders and lovely illustrations.


a chic desktop = increased productivity

Since I work from home, I'm always looking for things to spruce up my everyday routine...these gems from See Jane Work make me want to work all day long (well, 'almost' all day long...)


Inspirations this week...

This week I turned to my archive of books for inspiration...I'm into quirky human nature (yes, those are cupcake dresses) & unpurposeful (yet beautiful) designs from around the country...
