Dinanda Nooney


all taken in brooklyn in the late 1970's, these photos taken by a photographer named dinanda nooney are fascinating. the act of going into people's homes and taking photos seems like such a modern phenomenon, at least to me, and these photos are an unexpected reminder that it's been happening long before the selby and the popularity of design blogs. the ones above are some of my favorites, but there's over 500 of them!

introducing beth hoeckel




i couldn't be more excited about these two works by beth hoeckel. both originals ($325 each) and a pretty reasonable size at 16" x 20", either one of these would make a seriously great addition to art walls everywhere. shop beth's work at LEIF here, and then head on over to her website to take a look at all her work.

trend alert: hexagons


hexagons are popping up all over the place these days, and we've got lots of 'em! i love all the copper and gold in this collection. i especially love the new hexagon vases and planters from ferm living that we just added (they're solid brass!). shop the hexagon trend here!

color combos at stylyze

have you guys checked out stylyze yet? it's a newly launched website that makes it easy to create color combination boards from any image you want. they were kind of enough to make the three above using some things from our art collection. pretty good, huh? head on over and create your own here!

new arrival: bolivian frazadas


i'm excited about these guys as it kind of feels like a new category for me (kind of venturing into rug territory) — these bolivian textiles known as frazadas can be used as a picnic blanket, a throw at the foot of the bed, a decorative bedspread, or a rug. i think my favorite use for them is as a rug, as they're pretty heavy and substantial. (they're made to withstand the high-altitude chill of the andes where they originated).

there are seven styles, all totally one-of-a-kind of course. you can check them all out here! (can you tell i like pink? i guess the bolivians do too. my kinda people.)

new kilim pillows in neons & neutrals


i just added a whoooole new slew of beautiful kilim pillows to the shop - it might be my favorite batch yet. i picked out a lot of designs with unexpected hits of neon pink (which makes them feel super contemporary), but there are also some really nice washed out neutrals and pastels. check them all out in new arrivals!

vintage botanical prints


if you haven't yet checked out the collection of vintage botanical prints i put up last week, head on over and check them out! most of them have sold out (i'm wishing i had gotten a lot more), like all these seaweed ones, but the ones left, especially those big, chart-like guys, are super amazing. the colors are so vibrant and vivid. the pink and cranesbill family is my favorite - i'm having a hard time not taking it down and keeping it for myself. the only thing stopping me is i have no place to put it! take a look!

pretty paper products are back!

i'm real excited to announce the relaunch of our paper category! it went away for a little while, but it's back and better than ever — filled with boxed card sets, calendars, journals and more. i may have gone a little overboard with the calendars so i sure do hope you like them! these dipped dyed note cards are my favorite. (the designer used kool-aid!) shop the collection!
