Lovely Things #2

Hello! Here I go with my second installment of LOVELY THINGS! This time it seems to be more about home goods, travel, and art. It’s strange that, without trying, these things that my eye tends to gravitate to all sort of fit together in color and mood. Totally randomly lured by them, but cohesive all the same. Oh my word, I am coveting so many home things. It’s hard when you can see the design symphony your home could boast, but the piggy bank just shakes its head. Little by little it will get there. Check out more Lovely Things posts! ♥

Love this viewpoint of a 17th century church on Monserrate in Bogotá, Colombia.

This beautiful little specimen terrarium display case is high on my wish list.

This photo from The Danish Girl of Alicia Vikander, as amazing artist Gerda Wegener, is stunning. The costume designs by Paco Delgado are a dream.

I’m absolutely cuckoo for this Forest Green Velvet Settee and all the emerald, grey, and duck egg hues. Also, this navy velvet sofa is very close to my antique Chippendale rescue.

Such sweet floor cushions in geometric waves prints. Nice for kitties, pups, babies, or just so your own bum is comfy relaxing on the floor.

This fun Geometric Wool Tile Dhurrie is a great piece! Especially if the #ihavethisthingwithfloors reality of fancy tile prices is getting you down.

Ummm…. I can’t unsee these phenomenally beautiful kilims by Taher Asad-Bakhtiari. His textile work is brilliant.

Yep. Still have my eye on these black pom pom baskets. Too good.

“Forestus Tatas”. Hahahaaaa! This Imaginary Boob Fungus Terrarium painting is awesome. I also love this other terrarium painting she did.

Wow. Lisa’s new lighting designs are freaking fantastic. Those colors! I’d like a Large Smooth Bell, a Small Smooth Bell, and a Large Matchstick Tube to hang together.

ALL the things from Woonwinkel, please. Especially loving the Copper Bowls with White Marble Lids and the Natural Linen Black Triangles Pillows.

Such a clever stacked jewelry box in layers of maple, cork, and copper.

These pretty blown glass pitchers would be nice to have filled with ice and lemonade spritzers for summer dinners on the patio or filled with mimosas at brunch with friends.

YAY! It’s peach season!! This peach tartlet recipe looks yummy.

Oh, yeah. I’d love some strawberry apricot breakfast crisp any morning… any day.

I love how inviting these tufted daybed mattresses look when stacked up or positioned amongst the houseplants for a living room floor retreat. Really into this one and this one.

Some of the amazing ceramics available at OKO. Those black vases are by Bobbie Specker and Meadow Design Ceramics made the black planter pot and black salt holder.

Well, this is a dream workspace! Love the Samara Work Table and the whole look from Feist Forest and Country Living mag.

Debbie Carlos

I’m planning out some paint, wallpaper and large prints in a couple different rooms at home and I found myself back in the amazing Debbie Carlos print shop. I own the deliriously dreamy Pink Clouds Print (you can see the Pink Clouds in my bedroom) and the huge Clouds Poster. Debbie’s prints are on beautifully thick, heavyweight luster photo paper and I think it makes them a bit more special as well as more sturdy. The posters are on nice paper as well and I think they are especially good for creating a fun, large impact in a room at lower price point so you can switch it up. The smile-inducing new Debbie Carlos lookbook below was shot by Ola Onda — so great! I currently have my eye on the Fog Print, the big black and white Roses Poster, the color Flowers Poster, and the Lake Print. I love that Debbie is offering clips and wooden poster hanging kits now — super handy. More HERE.
