a fun sweatshirt.

how amazing would a macrame headboard be?

can i please have this space?

i want every. single. one.

in the market for new lighting? go here.

these are just, wow.

bedroom perfection (that mirror!).

oh my gosh, these sandals!

feeling spring

i just reeeeeally like this artisanal line of home goods today offered up by the australian-based sage & clare, it reminds us that spring is right around the corner, sort of...

bright, light, textural, chock full of simple patterns and amazing materials this line has spring written all over it. and it's so fun! enjoy...

woven by vincent sheppard

belgian-based vincent sheppard is offering up a new twist on woven furniture that i really like. not your typical rattan which in many ways can look cheap or short term, vincent sheppard's pieces are modern, sleek, "imaginative designs that combine tradition and modernity"...
there is a really neat textural element that woven furniture or light shades like these add to any space, residential or commercial. i have always felt that not only adding in texture to your spaces, but mixing textures, mingling a variety of coarser or finer textures to spaces/places keeps it interesting, it allows your eye to flow in and around a space and feel different things. i love that!

i also love this line. it's fresh, elegant and utilitarian all rolled into one great design ball. to read more about vincent sheppard's creative design timeline, head here, & enjoy!

for me it's been a hectic week (but a good kind of hectic) & surrounding us these days are crazy news stories and news paper headlines that are head scratching to be sure. i'm trying to stay focused, positive and full of hope and love. these just inspired me today. they make me feel good...
try to stay positive! just saying...

in between the busy (and busy thoughts!) you'll find me reading, sipping red wine (a friend just dropped off 3 new bottles for me to try!), and sleeping in. i hope that your weekend is everything you want it to be. and it's friday, so some fun finds from around the world wide web:

from tiny islands

i find myself lately pairing down, minimalizing my wardrobe, my interiors, my color palette interests and yes, my jewelry ownership. and i'm most especially attracted to subtle, simple and suggestive pieces. i absolutely love this line...offered up "from tiny islands", it satisfies all that i'm drawn to right now, shape, line, pattern, overall seriously clean design...
the aim of from tiny islands as stated on their about page is to "speak of solitude and freedom, of quiet resolution" in the form of jewelry design. those words are so beautiful at times. and each of the pieces offered up by from tiny islands speaks to their overall design personality.

from tiny islands also hopes to remind those drawn to their jewelry to enjoy them as keepsakes. all of these are on my current keepsake wishlist. what about you? are you coveting a more minimal jewelry design line? or are you still breaking out the big earrings now and then? (hey, there's a time for everything, right?! ha!) enjoy...
