Of course we couldn’t resist sharing these pattern-covered pumpkins for Halloween! If only we would’ve been so creative with our own this year! Hope you all have a great Halloween!
These awesome pumpkins are from Alisa Burke’s blog.

loving: marimekko 10.11.2011

>

As pattern designers, we can’t overstate our love for marimekko. it simultaneously reminds me of childhood (the cars and trucks pattern was in my little brother’s room) and feels so fresh and current. so, the new flagship store in new york city along with their new online shop is heaven on earth for these two pattern-obsessed girls!

house & home: dwell studio furniture 10.04.2011

>

yep, you’re seeing this correctly! Dwell Studio is introducing a brand new line of furniture and it is A-MAZING!!! You know how obsessed we are with Dwell (I personally own two of their rugs, one in the nursery shown here, and we have no shortage of posts about Dwell, like on our holiday gift guide for kids here, and for our bookshelf here) ….soooo, needless to say when the email titled “Introducing DwellStudio furniture” landed in our inbox today we just about fell out of our chairs! And, of course, it’s perfect! The whole line feels, “grown-up”, but not too overdone. It feels so new, yet, it has clear inspiration from the past. The finishes seem to be in just the exact colors, textures and materials we look for but can’t always find. And, of course, the upholstered furniture can be done in all sorts of Dwell signature patterns. Are we wanting to redo our entire house since the moment this email was received? YES, yes, and YES! (run, don’t walk, go there now)

We’ve been long obsessed with designer, Orla Kiely, so who better to teach our kiddos about colors and numbers using her awesome shapes and patterns!? We love the new addition of Colours Book for Babies and Numbers Book for Babies to the Orla Kiely collection. Definitely wouldn’t mind having these laying around the coffee table!

    >These are seriously cute. I wish I could get my hands on them. I'll have to check if the book depository sells them. I need all the free world wide shipping I can get. I'm living in Brazil for a year. Yay! But I miss all the goodies from the States. Anyway, thanks for pointing me towards these books.

Not gonna lie, these kinda make us want to start completely over on the baby rooms!! Aren’t these just adorable! So much character! And yes, you read that correctly, they are reusable! And they are fabric! So basically, they are perfection! Check out the entire range by Love Mae right here…we seriously had a hard time editing and there are SO many more options!
