bookends from the vintage style Dutch brand Pakhuis Oost are stylish and functional at the same time. A sweet (and not too expensive) way to keep books in place. They’re handprinted and handcrafted in Vietnam and you can choose from a bird, squirrel, fawn or rabbit (my fav). Available at the well curated and beautifully designed children’s shop Sunday in Color.

candles these days are from Illume. Got the coconut milk mango tin in a goodie bag from the blogshop class I took (more on that in a future post), and I’m now obsessed! Can’t wait to gift these for the holidays.
When a trio..
of talented artists get together, amazing things develop. Jennifer Fiore, Nina Lalli and Signe Yberg meet up weekly to create a beautiful collection of ceramics called Mondays. I want every one of these lovely pieces to call my own, but I also think they’d make pretty fabulous gifts as well. Find the full assortment of one-of-a kind bowls, cups, planters, platters & beyond here.
the bold and colorful collection from Paul Farrell. The UK-based artist and designer is inspired by color, nature and form to create his work. And if you’re as smitten as we are, you can shop the full assortment of cards, textiles and prints here.

Ferm Living New Collection
to see the new collection from Ferm Living. We dressed our dining room walls with the feather wallpaper and couldn’t be happier with the outcome. So, the new fall/winter 2012 collection leaves me wanting more Ferm Living in my home. They have an all new bath line, as well as some other killer pieces like pillows, baskets, flower pots, tea towels and SO much more. Check it all out here.

Love Bird Bowl
Lacy Bluebird Bowls
my new favorites is Folksy, a site that showcases the work of UK designers and makers. It’s fun to browse the fab selection of goods, and one adorable little bird that might be neat to have around the house is this guy. It could be a nesting area for jewels or even used for serving snacks to visitors. For an even bigger selection of these hand crafted ceramics, check out all of the designer’s work here.

Bergman Chair, $400
define the furniture company Industry West and they are: “Design, Quality, Value, and Community”. They give back to the community, use solid materials and make pieces that are sturdy and clean. I’m loving the industrial feel (and the price point’s not so bad either).

Rockett St George
with Rockett St George. This gem of a shop has a “unique and eclectic mix of homeware and gifts,” as they so perfectly state. I’ve got my eye on so many of the wonderful things Rockett St George offers, especially the Tie Dye Bedspread, this wallpaper and almost all of the lighting options they’ve got stocked. Really, it’s hard to narrow it down, so go take a peek and see what you might find.
In the early days..
we wrote about the hanging air plant and once again Mudpuppy brings more gems like the Terracotta Hanging Ceramic Pinch Pot. This little beauty is handmade in Denver, Colorado and is sure to liven up any room. It also currently comes with the air plant, great bonus!
