the child in me {shinzi katoh design}

i first spied shinzi katoh products while perusing the shops along Queen W. and was ecstatic when a friend sent me a link to their online shop filled with adorable tapes, fabrics, soup mugs, stationery, calendars, et cetera!

the little kid in me squeals "i want this one, and that one, ooh- and that!"

also, check out this amazing short film by Kirsten Lepore. click the image below for 10 minutes of eye candy and whimsy:

Bedroom LOVE!

I finally joined the rest of the adult world, and got myself a decent, BIG bed. I love it, and am now on the hunt for the perfect bedding, and also how to fit everything I have in my now too full room. I came across this bedroom, along with an amazing house tour on Design Sponge today. This is the home of Dave Alhadaf, owner of The Future Perfect, a home store in Manhattan. The whole home is pretty amazing, but there was something about that afgan ( the official word for crouched blankets in our family, I don't know what you guys call them) that I though looked so perfect. I'm not big on big, puffy perfect bedding, it just looks too high maintenance. I also suddenly thought, of course, SHELVES. All furniture problems solved. I'll get rid of it all and just use shelves.

Jamie Hayon

While passing through Design Sponge ages ago I spotted a rocking green chicken, and that began my love affair with designer, Jamie Hayon and his whimsical creations. He transforms his amazing imagination into complete interiors, which feel like something out of another reality. ahhh. I love.

Erica Tanov's home to go gaga over.

Images from Apartment Therapy
While browsing through Apartment Therapy today I came across a brilliant house tour that I am still raving about.  One in a hundred, that I can't get enough of.  I rarely read much about the home dwellers themselves, but this one made me want to get to know these ones.  Erica Tanov designs women's clothing in Berkeley CA.  You can see her beautiful collection here.  And you must go here to see the rest of her beautiful home.
