Sunday

How cool is that?!! And I was just reading on Design Mom’s blog that the book made the New York Times Bestseller list for May and June! So I think you all know our home was featured on Design Mom’s blog a couple of years ago (if you haven’t, check it out here).

Break the Silence! Thank gawd for Ilse!

Thursday

Ilse-Crawford-Sinnerlig-collection-for-Ikea-Stockholm-2015_dezeen_468_1
Hello!!?

STUDIOILSE in Hong Kong

Monday

duddell's
I think by now everyone knows I love Ilse Crawford’s design aesthetic(I have a pinterest board devoted to her work).¬†Duddell’s in Hong Kong is one of her latest projects.
