Now here’s a cool new product!  Cocoon 1 is a very special place of retreat.  “The innovative product magically connects aesthetics and function. Its insularity provides protection and seclusion. At the same time, its translucency enables us to let our thoughts wander whilst simultaneously allowing us to join in with life “outside”

Another fantastic pillow announcement!  The Swedish textile design company, Bemz, is now launching a unique “Artist Series” collection of digitally printed and specially designed cushion covers. Developed by Bemz’s in-house designer Katarina Wiklund, the fabrics feature both classic and retro designs, new on-trend neon colours and interesting trimming and detailing.

I think I’m in love with all the designs shown here!  The colors and patterns and spot on with the trends we are seeing around the web.  There are lots of options to choose from and I think everyone will find something they love!

“The new collection includes five different designs, ranging from digital prints based on landscape photographs from 19thcentury postcards to patterns inspired by the recently renovated Fisksätrakyrkan (Fisksätra Church) outside of Stockholm. The patterns will only be available as cushion covers as a part of the Artist Series Collection, and all of the fabrics are made of natural materials like the rest of Bemz’s products. The collection will be available online and at Bemz’s Inspiration Store in Stockholm from today.”

Happy shopping!!!

No one can ever have to many pillows.  It’s the easiest way to freshen up a space!  I love the soft colors used in these Fred Shand pillows which are available at Anthropologie.  Also the tiny coral cross-stitches and printed and appliqué plumes are pretty awesome.

I am a firm believer in collaborating.  I always say that two heads are smarter and wiser than one independent head.  Lia Fagen of Mod Pieces recently collaborated with textile designer Avril Loreti to create a limited edition collection of lamp shades.  The two met at the Toronto One of a Kind Show.  Lia was drawn to Avril’s angular patterns & off-beat colour schemes. Avril’s line of modern homewares had never included lamp shades, and it wasn’t long before they started discussing a collaboration.  Bravo ladies!!
