I have two dogs and thus can tell you, with some authority, that a truly fabulous dog bed (and by that I mean one that isn’t varying shades of neutral or plain ol’ preppy striped) is tough to find. Needless to say, I was super excited to discover Felix & Milou, a brand new dog bed line by Tove Jakobsson -huzzah! Finally, something with a little style!
Her cushions are all made by hand from lovely graphic Swedish fabrics. They’re sized for a cat or small dog, hopefully soon, a bigger size to come! I fear poor Indy is getting the shaft, being more in the medium to large range. But wouldn’t they make great floor cushions around a low table as well?
This is the one I purchased – a fabric by Cecilia Hall Åhlens that has a lovely Josef Frank vibe – beautifully made and adorable in person!
All the cushion covers are removable and washable. Check out the rest of her products here.
Our friend and 2011 Holiday Guest Designer Karin Soderquist recently shared some images of her newest illustrations and we’re literally rolling on the floor laughing. Her quirky characters are what won us over with her holiday cards, and now they’re getting even quirkier. Skate Grrrls (shown above) is a colorful study of the movements and poses of skate boarders. We love the bright hair colors! That isn’t even the best of it. The quirkiest of all her characters has to be her collection of sexy Swedish pastries, illustrated in celebration of Let’s Fika! Does it get any better than a chocolate ball in high heels??
Perhaps the only thing better is a cinnamon bun in cowboy boots…
Lookin’ good, ladies. Thanks Karin for sharing your new work! To view more, head over to her website here!
This week I’ve been getting into the idea of a fun and fresh spring wedding. It all started with the launch of our new wedding invitation lines with the ever fabulous Jacqui Lee & equally lovely Susy Jack*. From left to right and moseying down: Our brand spankin’ new save the date from the Flora & Fauna invitation suite by Jacqui Lee, love this beautiful, beautiful girl – so happy! Details from this adorable wedding (shot by Sweet Little Photographs), this handsome guy is so casually hip (Jenna Trapasso of Red White and Green Photography), and a snappy striped bow tie from Forage. Fun, graphic shoes from BHLDN, polka dot blusher veil from Sibo Designs, this lovely bouquet by Flowerwild (photo by Jose Villa Photography), simple ruffles (photo by Elizabeth Messina), and Flyaway Confetti from BHLDN. Susy Jacks*’ Daisy save the date from her brand new line with us! Love these plaid bows by the Belle and the Beau, and these cute graphic napkins from Merriment Events. Also love this fabric photobooth backdrop from Lena Corwin’s gorgeous wedding…and last but not least, how cute would this little vintage beetle be for a getaway car? (Stephanie Williams Photography).
This week I’ve been loving succulents, the perfect thing for a romantic desert wedding. Our Desert Skyline invitation would be perfect for the occasion, as would this super cool and minimalist tumbleweed bouquet by JL Designs (photography by Gabriel Ryan Photographers), and fabulous sparkly purse – very 70′s disco halter top but in the coolest possible way (photo by Max Wanger from this inspiring Palm Springs weddding). The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs (photo: Lane Dittoe) would make for a hip wedding venue, and I love this bridesmaid’s dress (photography by Gabriel Ryan Photographers). Gorgeous and simple cake (from Whole Foods! Photo by Jose Villa), fabulous signs by Lorie Marie from Pretty Little Things, cowboy boots are an obvious shoe choice and a brilliant option for dancing the night away hobble free (Nicole Chatham Photography), these pretty centerpieces by Air Plant Supply Co. (photography by Brandon Kidd), and brilliant dahlia and succulent wedding bouquet recipes from the Wedding Chicks.
We’ve just added our Marquee wedding invitation to our website, an invitation I designed for a fabulous Art Deco inspired wine country wedding, so this week I’ve been daydreaming about a glamorous 20′s era wedding. Darkly romantic florals from Saipua and these gorgeous sparkly shoes (Kallima Photography). I love the drape and details on this Temperley London Jean Dress and this whimsical shooting star headpiece from Rodarte. St. Germain favors with perfect labels from this amazing speakeasy inspired wedding, crystal and chiffon headband by our dear friend Jennifer Behr (who designed my wedding headpiece!). This simple golden cake (via StyleMePretty) is just stunning and Chie Mihara’s Stratosphere Mary Janes via BHLDN are both elegant and witty. Art Deco perfection in Coralie Bickford-Smith’s foil stamped cover design for the Great Gatsby and of course one must have a bass and banjo player ( The Two Man Gentleman Band ) and a perfect bridesmaid’s dress from BHLDN...See my entire Marquee Inspiration Board here!
This week on Pinterest I’ve been mooning over Kris Knight’s paintings – the palette, the ethereal clarity – so mesmerizing! I have been generally loving delicate, organic details like this amazing mushroom cake by Erica O’Brien (gorgeous photo by Elizabeth Messina) and the muted creamy colors blended with neutrals in this Parisian rooftop. Also loving florals by Saipua, so painterly, loose and natural! This ring by Eldel Precious, delicate champagne flutes from Joy de Vivre, gorgeous Emannuelle Junqueira dress and, apropos of nothing, Strictly No Elephants which amuses me.
Are you on Pinterest? Find us there or leave your link in the comments- we’d love to see what you’re pinning too.
We are huge fans of Shanna Murray and found this post on Creature Comforts about her new decal collection.
We think a customized decal would be fantastic as decoration for a wedding, such as “The Smiths” or ” Eunice & Daniel”!
Or maybe a sweet note on the wall of a baby’s nursery or playroom…

We are thrilled to welcome the very talented Julia Kostreva to our fab design team. She designed this gorgeous invitation suite…
Don’t you just love the split fountain printing (that super cool blend from limey green to orange)…
…and the hand drawn type? We do!
This was printed by the always fantastic Studio on Fire…
Every serious circus needs a ring of fire, obviously – here’s how to make your very own. Tiny tiger not included!
