How fantastic is this collaboration between Schumacher and Dempsey & Carroll? It’s pretty much a dream come true for a textile and stationery nerd like myself. Actually, a real dream come true would be a partnership with Gracie or de Gournay wallpaper. Pretty please, Dempsey & Caroll, I’ll buy boxes!
So here’s the tough question.. which one is your favorite? I’m leaning towards the Chiang Mai.
FEMININE+FLIRTY: Sugar Paper LA Notecards | Caran d’Ache Pen
MODERN PREP: Iomoi Notecards | Iomoi Bamboo Pens
COLORFULLY CLASSIC: Dempsey & Carroll Notecards | Campo Marzio Pen
What’s your stationery style? Me, I’m a bit of a hoarder and will take one of each, please!
delfonics pencils | medium notebook | small notebook | large notebook
I have a habit of always keeping a notebook stashed in my bag. They come in handy for to-do list making on the fly, and are perfect for jotting down those occasional genius ideas. These polka dotted notebooks from Madewell are too cute for words. I’m pretty sure they’d inspire more frequent bouts of creative genius, don’t you?
Rainbow Rag Rug | Anna’s Chair | Notebooks | Wedges | Earrings
If your week is in need of brightening, this round up should do the trick. I’m particularly obsessed with Anne Harwell’s rendition of Anna Spiro’s chair. Anna happens to be one of my very favorite interior designers and I die over this chair. What’s even more amazing is that Anne’s print has been turned into a needlepoint kit. If I only had the skill..
After being away from the blog for so long, I knew that a fresh start would require some fresh inspiration. Lately I can’t get enough of German artist Nina Nolte. The painting above is from her series “The Best is Yet to Come”–I can’t think of a more appropriate theme to start off 2012! I’m always searching for statement pieces to add to my jewelry collection and only wish I had snapped up this Kate Spade stunner when it was available. Jackie Kennedy’s equally beautiful sister Lee Radziwill is another icon of mine. Her book Happy Times is currently on my nightstand and offers the most intimate glimpse into the lives of the Bouvier sisters. In 2012 I’m resolving to take care of myself. Getting the requisite 8 hours of sleep should be no problem thanks to my dreamy new D. Porthault Tigre shams. Color and pattern continue to be my biggest sources of inspiration and Quadrille marries the two perfectly. GADABOUT’S “A Horse of a Different Color” note cards have been on my wish list for years. The fact that they continue to inspire me is reason enough to pull the trigger!
P.S Thank you for all of your kind emails and tweets over the past few months. I had no idea how many of you came to love this little blog and am eager to get back to posting!
P.P.S for more of inspiration follow me on Pinterest. I’m obsessed!
