Art Crush: Bright & Bold Prints by Melanie Mikecz

Boy am I a sucker for anything bright and rainbow-y. Love these bold geometric prints by Melanie Mikecz!

Etsy Find: Pigeon Toe Ceramics Faceted Drawer Pulls

I’ve been looking for just the right drawer pulls to add to our new cabinets in our new bathroom, and these may be it.  I love the modern, clean feel of these mixed with a nice dose of organic shaping.  Plus the price is great – $24 for a set of 6. You won’t find pulls like this at Home Depot!

Giraffe Is The New Black

It started with our Adler Giraffe Lamp in the front room, then the nursery fell into a Giraffe theme. For quite a while now my husband and I love giraffes as a decorating motif.  Clearly we’re not overly obsessive about it, but we seem naturally drawn to any giraffe accessory, and lately (as previously observed in a wall hook round-up) I’m seeing lots popping up in the background of room designs and as fun home decor pieces & art.

Perhaps my affinity for giraffes stem from my being 6ft tall and somehow I (we) both relate to the tall and slightly awkward creatures (I had a Spanish boyfriend who used to call me “Giraffeee”, so the comparison is a long-standing one).  I think birds/swallows/any fowl sitting on a wire/owls/any woodland creatures, especially squirrels have had quite an extensive limelight…I guess I’m just happy to see giraffes leave the nursery and make their majestic debut.

Will the giraffe ever reach Faux Trophy status? Only time will tell.  In the meantime here’s a quick roundup of some lovely giraffe decor & accessories. (BTW, I’m calling the Elephant as making a comeback soon too.)

Art Crush/Etsy Find: ReStyle

Well wasn’t this a pleasant early morning discovery! Outblush tipped me off to the delightful retro-modern prints of Czech Republic based Etsy shop, ReStyle.  I’m always a sucker for bold graphic prints with text, and these are no exception.  You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Gray might just have to be squeezed somewhere in the nursery. And I am SORRY, but I Love You Like A Fat Pug Loves Cake?? Ahahahahahaaaaaaaa!

The Star Wars poster is pretty fly for those who are into it, and I love this mid-century modern inspired In The Kitchen print too.

And Kiss Me Right Under My Mustache. And pretty much everything else in the shop.
