We can’t get enough of our cosy homewares at the moment.. and the range below by House Of Rym is no exception. House Of Rym is a place where ancient Tunisian handcrafts and contemporary Scandinavian design fall head over heels. In love. We love these colourful, homely, tribal-inspired textiles – and they’d look perfect in our living rooms! What’s even better is that all of the following are being offered with a discount at the moment… making these even harder to resist!

Is it wrong that I do a lot of pinning on Pinterest while breastfeeding my little one? Don’t get me wrong.. feeding time is very much a bonding experience for me… buuuutttttt when it starts to cross the 45 minute mark, I figure that I can bond just as well by having one eye on my laptop? That’s ok isn’t it???! Well – i’ve been finding some bloody lovely stuff in the process! Check out the fabulous imagery below from a multitude of talented people (see our ‘Bicycle’ Pinterest board for a closer inspection). I might make this a regular ‘Pinterest  Discovery’ feature as have sooo much lovely stuff to share… watch this space…

Where have we been?! We are sooooo sorry guys! Due to the arrival of teeny tiny feet last November and consequently 3 months of sleep deprivation, Morning Edit has been ruthlessly cast aside in favour of cake consumption instead (in those blissful moments when the little one is napping of course!) But we do hope you haven’t left us for good, and that we still have a few friends out there!? We will be returning very shortly with more gorgeousness. Rather like this super-duper New Baby card above from the oh-so-talented Ros Shiers. Cute!

I have been in love with the floral paintings of Lulie Wallace for ages now. There’s something so feminine about them, maybe it’s the colours I don’t know, but at the same time they manage to be ballsy and bold. I also love her use of pattern, it manages to make the backgrounds of her paintings as interesting as the subject matter. It’s so rare to come across an artist with such a large body of work and to love every piece but I genuinely do. And looking on her website tonight she has a new section of landscape paintings  – who knew! AND to top it all off she also has a range of fabrics you can purchase by the yard or ready made as cushions and bags. All lovely but I’m saving for a painting!

sanna-annukka-logo

We’ve been huge admirers of Sanna Annukka’s work for many years, and so we thought we’d check out her latest work as it’s been a while since we’ve taken a peek – and we needed our fix! It’s safe to say that we LOVE Sanna’s prints below.. Each print is a limited edition silk screen print on
285gsm Fabriano Rosapina, signed and numbered by Sanna herself. We just adore her patterns and palettes combined with her simple shapes and compositions. Just lovely. We’re also liking her tea-light holders and Soul Bird piece below too… Yep – we want it alllllll!!!!

Wow. That Laine Fraser is a clever so and so isn’t she? There I was marvelling at her website, full of illustrations, designs and collages (is there nothing she can’t do?!) when I clicked on a link to a site called Tassel and Gaine. Not only does Laine work as a Senior Graphic Designer for iconic Australian stationery brand Typo, she has enjoyed a successful career incorporating a number of disciplines including brand identity, advertising & marketing collateral, magazine cover & layout design, textile design for both apparel & homewares, through to designing gift cards, wrap, craft/scrapbooking product, stationery items, custom illustration & design.  But not content with a career history like that, NOW she has set up her own boutique homewares label Tassel & Gaine with her friend, Fleur Harris. Phew. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. I love, love, love the idea of the double sided cushions, why has nobody thought of this before? Take a look below at a selection of her design and homewares ranges. Wowsers, that’s one busy lady.

elzo-logo

We love the dark, macabre and yet strangely cheerful work of Elzo Durt. His designs can be found gracing the covers of magazines, on festival and gig posters, newspapers and also for skate and snowboarding brands such as Carrhart, Rome and Flip, and for clothing brands like Lacoste and Step Art. Elzo was born in Brussels in 1980, and following an adolescence drenched in skateboarding and punk culture, he graduated in 2003 with a degree in graphic design and began to flood Belgium with his psychedelic and punkoïd images. We love it! We hope you do too?! His prints are stunning – check out his shop here for a browse over his silkscreens – all available online.

We have always had a soft spot for Tom Selleck, especially after seeing him in his lesser-known – and somewhat overlooked – blockbuster ‘Quigley Down Under’ many years ago… His handsome tasche can’t help but make us feel warm inside. And so what better way to celebrate the man than by having a permanent reminder on a cushion? Job done. And we’re not restricted to just the Selleck.. designer replaceface has created a whole collection of manly heroes via Society6, including Sly, Bill Murray, Tom Jones, Patrick Swayze, Jackie Chan, David Bowie and Eddie Murphy – to mention just a few. Santa – please take note that we love them all…and we want them all!

These hauntingly beautiful illustrations are the work of Swedish illustrator Mats Gustafson. Somehow Mats manages to include so much detail in works with just a few brush strokes. You can practically feel every ruffle and feather in the dresses he paints and the models show such elegance and grace. There is something very refreshing about the medium of watercolour used in editorial, particularly in the world of fashion illustration but if this is the result it should be used more!

Along with watercolour Mats also uses pastel and cut-out paperworks to achieve his instantly recognisable works. Now living in New York, Mats began his career in the seventies fighting back against the surge of photography being used in editorial work at that time. His fashion and portrait illustrations have been included in editorial publications such as French and Italian Vogue, The New Yorker, and Visionaire, and he has created advertising art for Hermès, Tiffany & Co., Yohji Yamamoto, and Comme des Garçons.
