Ania Pauser was recently selected as the "Young designer of the year" by Plaza Magazine for her gorgeous laser cut pendant lamps made out of aero plywood and paper. The jury's comment: "Ania Pausers lamp in laser-cut wood is like something straight out of Arabian Nights - fabulous!"... I couldn't agree more. They look like they came straight out of a Moroccan dream!
Thinking of adding a splash of color to your home- scratch that- a ginormous wave of color? Here's a bright idea- try out these stunning digital mural/ wall papers by designer Catalina Estrada. I also have to mention how much I love the styling of these photos. The contrast of modern vector images with vintage pieces of furniture is an awesome look and definitely tones down the wild graphics...
Just love all the beautiful prints on from beloved online store Mae. The fabric wall decals are defintely my favorite thing on the site- but they have some great tutorials to check out on their blog as well (and we all know thats the real way to my heart!)
I'm usually a short bare fingernails kind of girl (you have to be when you're dealing with ink and printing all day) but this is something I MUST try out sometime... It's a clever little imprint nail design you can do with newspapers you have around the house. Very cute! VIA

It's great for those of us who are trying to keep a budget.... as we all know, holiday spending can add up so its nice to not have to spend moolah on something that can be done at home! This paper pumpkin project is simple to do and can be customized to match your home decor according to what paper colors you use.

Littlefly has an amazing line of jewelry made from paper... but not just any paper. They use the pages from books, then insert the finished jewelry back in to it's "excavated space." They'll even create custom pieces, extracting pages from your very own books. It's a wonderful, unique process where they laminate the paper with a high-gloss- only showing faint imagery from the actual pages. I'm so excited to be sharing this with you today...
