Karo Art

Curly cosy sheep by Karo Art

These decorative ceramic pieces by Karo Art are fun with a side of fun, a double dose of fun, if you will. I’m fond of the Clouds in the Sky ceramic tile and I could imagine hanging that in entryway that would elicit a smile or two from guests or the occasional door-to-door salesperson. Do you get hounded by sales people? Recently, a salesman knocked on my door and tried selling me steak. Yes, steak. Completely random, I know. And no, I didn’t buy any steak from him.

Pray tell, what’s the most interesting and/or odd thing a door-to-door salesperson has pitched to you?

Color Crush: Vibrant Purple

A6 flower cut-out notebook by Serena Olivieri

I haven’t always been the biggest fan of the color purple, but it’s been starting to grow on me, especially in the summertime. One of my favorite cardigans (I own a dozen at least) is purple one that’s starting to show signs of age, no longer the loud, vibrant purple it once was when I purchased it last year.

Here’s a slew of vibrant purple, the color I’ve been crushing on lately:

Inspired Weddings

Inspired Weddings by Matthew RobbinsLast week while perusing Holly Becker’s blog decor8 (which has been recently redesigned and if you haven’t seen it, take a look!), I stumbled across wedding expert Matthew Robbins’ book Inspired Weddings.

With a beautifully styled cover, I have a sneaking suspicion that it’s one of those books that from the cover alone I have a gut feeling the interior will be laden with gorgeous photos of his innovative ideas galore for decorating and table setting a wedding.

Inspired Weddings by Matthew Robbins

The book is centered around basing “your wedding design on an object you and your spouse-to-be find meaningful”, and a from the previews I’ve seen that a lot of the book is infused with vivid colors and florals. Looking for extra wedding ideas? Pick up your copy over at Amazon.

Satchel & Sage

Creative husband and wife team Gerren and Morgana Lamson of Satchel & Sage put the “fun” in “funky”. I love their hand-drawn and eclectic style of the prints they currently have in stock in their shop, particularly their woodland creature series.
