i am going to have these tapestries sewn into rippleford curtains for the sliding door in our bedroom!
my dad forwarded me the info on this amazing boathouse for sale on little cranberry in maine. if i can't have it i at least want the awesome mussel pillow on the yellow chair!
i just spotted this lamp on a design sponge sneak peek. i can't wait to get one! it is a castiglioni design that is being produced by flos. the bulb is sand blasted on one side to diffuse the light and the extra cord wraps around the base. it might be the perfect lamp.
get it here in all these colors.
if i didn't hate hate flannel sheets i would buy a set of garnet hill's ticking stripe in ink. they are so beautiful, maybe i could use the shams and not actually sleep on them..
ever since i staple gunned it to my walls and ceiling in a college dorm room i have been obsessed with burlap. i recently made a shower curtain out of it, an hour long, very satisfing project!
i can't wait to get these burlap shoes from tom's shoes. if you haven't heard of this company yet check it out!
i have documented my love of national geographics before, but i think this image really shows what they add to a room and how graphic they can be. i live in fear that my ebay guy will run out...it started as prop for a set and i have now ordered for myself, friends and several clients...

i am a huge fan of salvor, their eve balso wall hanging is on my top ten list of the past year. i think the idea behind the salvor shop kiosk is brilliant. simple products with good (usually graphic) design are sold grouped by country. you can get hair-pins and twine, notebooks and gargling salt... so far japan, sweden, mexico and germany haave been featured. south africa would be a great one to do next!
this exhibit is so inspiring! i really hope to get to east sometime when it is up. now i can only obsessively read all the info on the website...
it all started with this rope chair by christian astuguevieille (available through holly hunt) that i saw in the march met home in the apartment of designer andrew flesher. i am now mildly obsessed with it... then i saw this post on apartment therapy. and then this one from domino's nick olsen.... i have now successfully improved the legs of my desk with 5/8" jute rope. i can't stop, i wrap anything that doesn't move with rope. i think i am going to tackle the banister at my in-laws cottage in maine this summer...
i have long been coveting one of sasha sykes' plexi cubes and now that i have seen the hay bale coffee table my coveting is out of control!
sykes has branched out from the hay cube with farm 21, "modern rural design" (what could be better?) she is not only filling plexi with different natural items, all sourced from her family's farm in ireland, they have some gorgeous wood benches and very cool roller shades (my favorite type of window covering). i am obsessed with making a cube filled with mussel shells!
