Rachel Salomon, fellow pillow contributor to Urban Outfitters, produces a beautiful array of mixed media art that moves beyond just awesome couch adornments. She has designed graphics for everything, from tees and print art, to CD’s and snowboards. Her inspiration is derived from “spending afternoons with her grandmother” and being surrounded by antiques and illustrated story books.
I’m a total color fiend, but lately I’ve noticed that there are some black and white doodads with real appeal. So… here are my black and white bedroom pics.
I’m stuffed with smooshy love for these new, bold, graphic pillows by Alyssa Zukas. This self taught artist has been designing for stores like Urban Outfitters and stylish, Jewish paraphernalia company, Notschlock. She goes by the pseudonym Two String Jane and subscribes to the idea of creating “designs that are wearable and pairable.” She works across many forms of media, from painting to sculpture to houseware design. Check out her latest and greatest (all available at Urban Outfitters):
Oooo wah! It’s likely I’m late to the game, but I just discovered the gem that is Lena Corwin. This ex San Franciscan, now Brooklynite, is a textile designer, illustrator, author and teacher. She not only sells her beautiful work, including team Mociun + Corwin, for affordable prices on her site, but she’s also teaching a hand printing workshop in her own Brooklyn apartment. If you don’t know her yet, you must check her out.
Stuffed animals or creature shaped pillows? The somewhat recent trend in couch pillows presents a fine line between the two. But who cares, they’re pretty rad and I wouldn’t mind throwing a few whales on my couch. What do you think will be the next couch pillow trend? What about “waterpillows”… like an 80’s waterbed only it’s a waterpillow? 🙂
UPDATE: new, amazing creature pillow installment here!
While moseyman was away, camping in the desert, I had been squatting in squalor. It’s barely an exaggeration, I had been shamefully lazy and had let the house become something he wouldn’t have recognized when he got back. Luckily, during my lowest point of procrastination, I found some sweet nuggets of online bed and bath inspiration. So in the nick of time, I whipped up a cleaning doozie and even added some fresh cut flowers to the kitchen! Still not picture worthy though, here instead, are a few of the images that willed me to turn on the vacuum.
