So, dear readers, after a couple of days of frustration trying to finish my last two dream room ideas, I decided to share some recent discoveries from the past week or so. Cause my rooms just aren’t coming together…
First up: Posters!
From top to bottom:
Let The Birds Sing – Anthony Burrill
Love – Volume Twenty Five @Etsy
Wherever We Are Together (Airstream Edition) – Volume Twenty Five @Etsy
Do Us Part- Eric Kass @Funnel
Happiness Is A Warm Gun – Sagmeister @typo/graphic
Inspired by this bedroom (which I found out, after drooling over it for awhile, was designed by Miles Redd)… some pretty things I’d like to have for my dream bedroom.
Farrow & Ball – The Lotus Papers wallpaper
Carini Lang – Mums silk rug
Anthropologie – Italian Campaign canopy bed
John Reeves – Louis Side tables
West Elm – Fluted Glass Lamps (in the iridescent grey color with custom shades)
Atmosphere print – JKLDesign (@Etsy)
Viviana print – Sandra Suy on (@Etsy)
Manon Lescaut bust
Still on the lookout for the perfect bedding, though I’m a fan of Dwell Studio, Thomas O’Brien for Target, and, occasionally, Anthropologie’s bed linens… I need ideas for a cool lamp shade fabric too. Have you got any suggestions for my pink, grey, and silver dream room?
Surfing around the net I found some things I’d love to see in my house…
The beautiful blue bottle glass hanging pendants would be great in the kitchen or dining room.
Love Amy Butler’s rug for the living room. I could see my now pea green sofa with new off white linen upholstery sitting next to John Reeves’ chic Louis side tables. Don’t they look like stilettos?
Love the oversize poppy print bedding and the Moroccan inspired headboard both from West Elm. I actually think the bedding would be great as a shower curtain. The head board (and the narrow leg bedframe) would be treated with a satin finish neutral gray and dressed with something fancier. Haven’t found the bedding yet. The search continues!
I was surfing the web the other day looking for vintage sewing patterns and I came across this Wiki. There was a plethora of vintage pattern information there including quite a healthy showing of patterns by a company I never heard of: Advance Pattern Co.
Check out the wiki for more info on Advance… and for tons of pattern envelope art for inspiration.
I spend a lot of time riding public transit because I don’t have a car. Consequently, as any transit rider knows, I spend a lot of time waiting. While I’m doing all this waiting, I like to look for something nice to look at.
That’s where the clouds come in.
Now, I’ll admit that my current cloud obsession has come about, in large part, because of where I wait. Out on the industrial edge of my city there is a surprising amount of nature to be observed (my job is near a protected marsh). Rabbits, snakes, deer, and coyote have all been spotted in our parking lot. That makes it pretty easy to get into the spirit of enjoying nature. Since my city of residence is often rainy… there are also many amazing cloud formations. I started taking pics so that I could preserve them for the super blah days of winter.
