Kind of obsessed with this collection from Huset. A few of these pillows or tea towels could easily transform any home into a woodland winter wonderland!
I have the utmost respect for a fine beard, moustache... and of course... the postiche!! I have a found a brilliant collection of these false facial pieces by photographer Julian Wolkenstein. So good!
"After many years of intense research and diligent attention to detail Julian Wolkenstein and Paul Sharp introduce you to the fascinating and stimulating world of postichery. Combining rare original postiche with meticulous replicas created by technical adviser Tamara Maynes, we are given, for the first time, a wholly unique insight into this previously undiscovered sector of Gender Studies. The project, part of the Slow Photography Movement, is beautifully documented in a Museum of Helsinki Publication "The Postiche Collection" - a Limited Edition catalogue designed by Hampus Jageland" -www.julianwolkenstein.com
I am such a sucker for pretty prints on fabric. You can ask my roommates- there isn't enough room for all the pillow cases and rugs in our little linen closets- they really must think I'm nuts! But, I think I'm going to have to make room, because I simply adore these linen pillows with foliage designs... Perfect colors for the Summer too. VIA Inkling Prints
These fabrics from Bluebellgray scream "Spring." The gorgeous colorful textiles are perfect for those of us ready to swap out our heavy dark linens with something a little more cheerful. Something about these remind me of those printed pillows from the 80's that evey suburban housewife had on their splatter paint sofas...(except this is like the cool little sister -without all the hairspray and purple eyeshadow. lol.) They also have lovely wall hangings- which could be a great way to update a space from Winter to Spring...
I work at an event coordination and gifting company in Los Angeles, so it's important that I stay ontop of trends for these services. A really cool new thing I've been seeing pop up is the use of fabric & embroidered invitations. Bringing in textures to you invitation ads a touch of personality and gives it a special hand-made quality. Our clients love to give invitations that look unique and personal- and by letting them pick out a coordinating fabric, it gives them the opportunity to input their own ideas during the creative process. It's a nice option to bring in to your design work, and it's actually relatively inexpensive. You can buy iron-on papers to give the illusion of printed fabric, or for a little more moolah, you can use a sewing machine that hooks directly to your computer to embroider whatever your little heart desires!
