SAVE THE BEES

Wednesday, 29 October, 2014

As you know, every month we donate 1% of our sales to a good cause. For September it was SAVE THE BEES and while researching this campaign we learned a lot about why saving the bees is so important:

Basically, “since the late 1990s, beekeepers around the world have observed the mysterious and sudden disappearance of bees, and report unusually high rates of decline in honeybee colonies. Bee killing pesticides in particular pose the most direct risk to pollinators.” Did you know that “the economic value of bees’ pollination work has been estimated around € 265 billion annually, worldwide?” A third of all our food depends on bees’ and other insects’ pollination. A world without pollinators would be devastating for food production. Visit SAVE THE BEES for more info!

Ever heard of wildflower bombing?! This video has  inspired us to find some land to flower bomb to help the bees!

We also found these beautiful images of beehive frames from a charming blog called Appleturnover. With this sense of color and pattern, we may have some bees come to the studio to help design our next collection…

Color on the mind

Tuesday, 21 October, 2014

Here are a few objects we’ve come across lately that are pretty dreamy. It’s nice to bring color into a space with hard surfaces and materials, not just the soft ones. But we’ll still take silky pastel gradients and marble // crystal combos any day!

These Condesa chairs are made of recycled plastic and are super sturdy and resilient.

Matti Braun’s dyed silk panels are so pretty.

This award winning collection of colored blown glass bubble lights is pretty cool. It’s got me in the mood for some bubble gum ~ ~ ~

I wish I could find more info on this beautiful claw-foot-crystal table. Found on this blog but if anyone has any other info please let us know.

Iacoli and Mcallister’s wire side table comes in this awesome pink powder coated steel! It’s a great piece for modular stacking – or simply on it’s own as a side table.

Brook&Lyn

BROOK&LYN is an LA based creative studio that makes these amazing weavings. They’ve also started making furniture and ceramics and beautiful handcrafted wooden objects for the home. All of the pieces we’ve seen from this husband and wife duo have a simple and calming aesthetic and an obvious presence of hand craftsmanship. We’re looking forward to seeing the whole furniture collection!

Getting ready for fall

Friday, 3 October, 2014

With summer slowly leaving us, we are starting to prepare for the change in season. We’re getting excited for cozy movie nights, wrapped in blankets and brisk early mornings with hot coffee in hand. One of the things that helps to make it all more enjoyable is being within a cozy space that has lots of texture and warm tones.

Ilse Crawford is a pro at creating warmth within a space. No doubt her Danish roots helped with that – long dark days for months at a time definitely has its payoffs! Who doesn’t want to curl up on that beautiful rattan lounge chair?

This Finnish-esque home in the Hamptons has us thinking about pattern mixing. Warm greys and neutrals, throw in some indigo and any pattern is welcome!

We also love The Apartment by the Line which is in Soho, NY and is open to the public. Here is one cozy bedroom corner snapshot. If you’re in New York be sure to check it out.

Loft Living

Tuesday, 30 September, 2014

We came across this interesting project that combined two lofts on the Bowery into one beautiful home, with 17 foot ceilings may I add. Stunning millwork throughout, with bleached alderwood in the kitchen and knotty pine throughout the living space, this home is filled with a sense of vastness and light. The Akari pendant helps to ground the open space and provides a soft contrast to all the wood and hard surfaces. We also love the playful use of beach towels for bath towels!
