Svenskt Tenn

Today I'm loving these bright, bold patterns from Svenskt Tenn, an interior design firm in Stockholm. Josef Frank was one of the founding designers back in the 1920's. Amazing how the house has kept the designs feeling modern and fresh! Enjoy the pop of color on such a dreary winter day.

Can I please put this couch and chair in the same room? With glossy white painted floors and gilded frames?

Fred Shand

So, I don't think this is too new, but it's brand new to me! Fred Shand is collaborating with Anthropologie to create these modern quilts and throw pillows. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and handcrafted with antique linens. I love this modern take on such a classic craft.

Love the colors in this one (above)

The Crystal Chain Gang

It's possible that I'm loosing my mind. I've been crazy busy bouncing from meeting to meeting. These lovely pieces jumped out at me from my inspiration folder today. I sincerely hope I haven't already posted these images, but it's worth the risk because I find them to be so, so lovely!! I know absolutely nothing about glass work...but from looking at these I have a feeling the craftsmanship that went into them is superb.

I know, I know. Put a bird on it. But these are so pretty I couldn't resist!

Modern Windsor

I want to start the day this morning with a great big hello to any new readers from The Sweetest Occasion! I was lucky enough to be featured on there with the lovely children's portrait photographer Christy. Thank you, and welcome!

So, I got the new West Elm catalog in the mail yesterday and their new Modern Windsor line totally caught my eye. Aren't these chairs just beautiful? I'd love to see what other takes West Elm could do on traditional furniture styles. Like maybe a modern Jinny Lind bed? How cool could that be?

The chaise, truly swoon-worthy!

And just in case you'd forgotten, this is what the traditional version looks like. Pretty great update, right? image via Country Living

Aren't these little valentine's just lovely? I'm such a fan of the tandom bike! And those teeny-tiny hearts? So pretty! Lynn of Satsuma Press just posted these in her shop today!

These cards bring to mind this wedding featured in Oregon Bride and shot by FS Photography. Isn't it pretty? More images here.
