My New Pattern from Jill Rosenwald

When Jill and I chatted about adding another pattern to my collection with her we couldn’t help but bring up the obvious: leopard, my favorite “color”.  Now, it took some time to get Jill on the leopard train as she was NOT a fan- but now I think she sees the aesthetic value in a little animal print!  Here are the pieces we did in leopard, and scroll down to see a very special addition to our line!

Everything is hand made in Jill’s studio in Boston. The accent colors are up to you- so if you prefer green to orange you totally can do that! Also, I love the mix of this pattern with my Bateau pattern too!

Inspired By Mint & Sand

I saw these incredible photographs by Álvaro Sánchez-Montañés and was not only inspired by the magical subject matter but also the colors found in these images. That pale minty green mixed with white and sand is such a soothing palette.

Here’s a roundup of some items that reminds me of this palette- from sandy rugs to crisp mint bordered sheets….

Gilt-y Finds From Kids Sources!

I was flipping through some magazine this week when I spotted this perfect gold canopy bed… and lo and behold it was from Pottery Barn Teen! I got to poking around and found a bunch of great gilt pieces I never thought in a MILLION years I could find here.

The aforementioned canopy bed- it doesn’t come in king, but if you need a queen (or two twins) this is fantastic.

A killer gold leg trestle desk. So awesome.

There is nothing “teen” about this bookcase! A [air flanking a fireplace or window would be STUNNING!

Small But Mighty

I really loved reading about designer Peter Dunham‘s Los Angeles apartment in the new House Beautiful small spaces issue. What’s really interesting is that after a tumultuous personal time, he decided to sell his 3,500 square foot house and move into this 550 square foot apartment . And it sounds like he’s happier than ever in it! I’ve always liked small but efficient spaces, there’s a coziness and feeling of safety to them. Check out his adorable new place and then see how to get the look…

Love the blue door…
