Favorites: Art by Anek

Summer fruits print by Anek

Salad print by Anek

Blueberry print by Anek

I am really taken with these prints by Ana, a Croatian graphic designer and illustrator. Exquisitely simple and richly colorful. The two fruit prints, in particular, are my favorites.

Ana has many more designs in her shop (in other sizes, too), as well as a calendar. If you have a foodie on your holiday list, her art prints may be just the thing you’re looking for.

You can also find her on Tumblr, Twitter and Pinterest

Favorites: Country Road

Country Road's new tableware collection

I just love this photo. And if Country Road were a store in the US, I would spend all of my money there. See their new summer tableware collection and so much more on their website.

Inspired By: Vintage Airline Luggage Tags

Vintage luggage tag calendar 3 by Girl n Gear

Sometimes I want to jump up and down when I see something that really stands out from the crowd. There are many beautiful calendars out there to choose from, but this one, inspired by vintage airline luggage tags, is unique, and I love it.

Great job, Girl In Gear Studio. I definitely want this calendar for my office.

Favorites: Styling by Charlotte Love

I never knew the combination of pastel and neon could be so fabulous. I love everything about this workspace (especially that chair!) styled by Charlotte Love for the new issue of 91 Magazine. To see the details up close, and also several more beautifully styled photos by Charlotte, check out issue 4.

You can also see Charlotte’s blog here.

Favorites: Colorful, Compact Children’s Bedroom


What I like about this Danish children’s bedroom:

1) Between the bunk bed, the desk and the shelves, it maximizes the small space beautifully

2) The Ferm Living wallpaper paired with that lovely yellow desk

Favorites: Utility Canvas Quilts and Bags

Utility Canvas bags and quilts at Purl Soho

If you are already starting to think about the holidays (I didn’t just say that, did I?) or need some special gift ideas, these Utility Canvas quilted blankets and classic field bags at Purl SoHo may be just the thing.

Utility Canvas Classic Field Bags at Purl Soho

Purl SoHo is only carrying two each of all the colors/designs of the bags and blankets, so if they sell out quickly (and I think they will), you can also find them directly from the Utility Canvas website (along with more many products).

Which is your favorite? The Red Swiss Dot blanket and the Pink Classic Field Bag are definitely going on my wish list.

Favorites: National Parks Explorers Guide

National Parks Explorers Guide by Ello There

National Parks Explorers Map close up by Ello There

Five years ago, I wouldn’t have loved this National Parks Explorers Guide by Ello There as much as I do now, because over the past few years, we’ve taken our girls to quite a few places on this map. (I wrote about our road trip to see Mount Rushmore, Devil’s Tower, Yellowstone and more here.)

The Explorers Guide is mounted on canvas, ready to hang, and comes with colorful tree stickers to mark the parks you’ve been to. Not only is it a beautiful addition to your home, it’s surely a lovely reminder of your travels.

Find the Explorers Guide ($115) in the Ello There shop here.

These Hot Mesh chairs are new from Blu Dot. Aren’t they great? They remind me of patterns from Spain – the Barcelona sidewalks, and the patterns throughout the Alhambra.

I’d be happy to have one of each.

Get a closer look at the chairs here. See all of Blu Dot’s new designs here. And have a happy weekend wherever you are!

Favorites: Vintage Wallpaper Side Tables

wallpaper tables by hoytrykk

I stumbled across these photos by Trine of the Hoytrykk blog (it’s Norwegian). She made these tables using paint and vintage wallpaper. They are so cheerful and colorful for a kids’ room.

The Hoytrykk blog is new to me, and it’s so pretty – I am a fan.

Have a happy weekend!
