Awe, it’s Friday! Today’s decor find is some very chic dip dye pillows. The dip dyed design is trending and looks great mixed with other patterns as I’ve done in my own home with this cute blue one. The soft cotton pillow covers come in four bright colors and are super affordable too at only $38 – available at Nine Space. I know … you need one for yourself!

happy decorating,

Girls Flamingo Bedroom & Caitlin Wilson Textiles

It’s been months in the making, but our new home addition is in its final stages. The master suite was all new construction, but some rooms were reconfigured. One such room was the bedroom of one of my kiddos. She’s an animal lover and can be found most of the time in the backyard talking to our hens. She has even knit them scarves. So it was totally in her wheel house to select a pink flamingo wallpaper for her new room (yes, there are tons of flamingos and yes, it’s adorable).  Pinks, corals and gray. Loved this color palette and looked to Caitlin Wilson Textiles first when sourcing throw pillows for her bed. I was in the process of narrowing down sizes and patterns when I received an email from Caitlin’s assistant asking if I like to review some throw pillows. (what?! I almost fell out of my chair.) It reminded me of the times when I would pick up the phone to call my mom, but she was already on the line because she was calling me.

So, of course I said yes and selected the Coral Fretwork and Greige Deco pillow. They are even more beautiful in person. The Coral Fretwork pillow has tiny gold metallic threads that create just the right sparkle. Love!

If you haven’t been introduced to Caitlin’s gorgeous pillow collection, I’ve selected a few of my current faves.

Thank you Caitlin for helping make my daughter’s room so special!

happy decorating,

Design Crush :: Lulu DK

LuLu DK butterfly table runner and pink peonies // fiesta ideas

A few years ago a butterfly fabric by Lulu deKwaitkowski for Schumacher inspired the color palette and theme for a family party. I spotted the playful pattern in another textile of Lulu’s that was used to cover walls. It’s hard to see from the image below, but the fabric is a gorgeous linen and the butterflies are in shades of blue with gold metallic accents. It is quite striking.

The image, found on Lulu’s blog reminded of how much I love her aesthetic – colorful, chic and always inviting. Her sophisticated, yet relaxed style is a result of her polar upbringing in bustling Manhattan and the laid-back beach lifestyle of the Hamptons and Bahamas. It’s most apparent in her LULU DK collections of fabrics, rugs, bedding, artwork and other decor items.

Lulu always hand draws and paints her motifs and patterns before they are transformed into beautiful textiles. Her artwork is stunning!

Recently, Lulu launched a line of adorable wall decals. My fave are the butterflies. So cute for a baby’s nursery, don’t you think?

I’ve never been a tattoo girl, but Lulu’s new metallic jewelry tattoos are so chic. Available in gold, silver or black the tattoos will last about 4 days in and out of the water. I just might have to try them out this summer!

happy decorating,

cristin

As you know, textiles are huge inspiration for me and ‘m particularly smitten for hand block prints. Some of my favorite are created by Philadelphia based, Galbraith and Paul. Their exquisite block printed fabrics and wallpaper are some of the prettiest around. Recently they released their new collection for spring 2014 – lantern, reed, parquet and sakura. They are fresh, pattern rich and you are going to love.
