Aimée finds herself floating through an unknown galaxy. The stars, asteroids, and comets begin to morph into a churning sea of cheetah spots. Friendly cheetah faces appear but quickly turn ferocious jumping out of space to chase her through a sleepy jungle. She tumbles through sparkling puddles, past lumbering sloths and playful primates, soon realizing she has lost the pursuing wildcats. Her journey continues as the jungle melts into an arid desert. Cacti the size of skyscrapers tower over her and the sun emerges high overhead. She basks in its warmth, exhausted from her surreal voyage.
PHANTASMAGORIA COLLECTION by Aimée Wilder brings this recurring, shifting dream to life, melding galactic visions, jungle adventures, and desert wanderings. The collection experiments with elements of light and shadow, pushing the limits of repeat size and density of detail. One is easily lost in the fantastical, oversized repeats featuring flora and fauna both real and imagined. Four new patterns debut in wallpaper, fabrics, pillows, and poufs, and three new patterns in an incredible new range of rugs and bespoke carpets.
Four new wallpaper patterns in more than 35 color ways comprise the new collection. They are priced at $180 per single roll (27 inches by 5 yards), and are printed by hand in the US on clay-coated, FSC Certified paper. Commercial substrates are also available starting at $200 per single roll.
Recently I blogged about The Ekka Necklaces from Designer, Julie Thevenot. I enjoy her contemporary sensibility, use of color and materials. I thought I would write again since recently she launched a full collection of accessories including wall pieces. Her "wall necklaces" are colorful and unique works of art that would complement a range of spaces and styles. She also has comfy printed clothing available in her shop as well.
I am really loving these necklaces by designer Julie Thevenot. They can be purchased in her big cartel shop along with some adorable printed duffle bags.
As I continue to search for the perfect wedding gift, I came across some very interesting dinnerware. East Hampton, NY based Sydney Studios produces beautiful ceramic pieces that can stand well alone or complete an entire table setting. Some of the brightly glazed plates, and bowls are pictured below. I would love to see this design style in the form of wallpaper or baby bedding.
Recently I have been browsing for wedding gifts and came across remodelista.com. Below are a few pics of some of my favorites on the site. Included on the site is a library of wonderful decor ideas, as well as many well curated resources for shopping both online and in different cities.
John Robshaw designs beautiful print based products for the home. To find inspiration for his line, John travels around the world and works with a nonprofit organization called Aid to Artisans. The orginization connects talented craftspeople in struggling countries to global markets to help their businesses thrive and grow. To create his work he combines the designs and techniques from the different cultures that inspire him. It wouldn't surprise me if the John Robshaw brand expands into wallpaper in the future.
Renate Müller has been creating limited quantity toys that are used for therapeutic purposes for handicapped children since the 1960's. These toys became very successful in hospitals as they were used for hand-eye coordination, balance training, and sensory and orthopedic exercises. These toys are highly functional, so beautiful and unfortunately very expensive! I would love to see Renate Mullers estate put out a more accessible series.
I mentioned The Brook Farm General Store in a earlier post last week but wanted to share some details. They stock some of the most beautiful linen products from europe and tons of other goodies for the home. Everything has a nautical and fresh feel. They even have luxurious Mateo bedding. Since I live so close my home is slowly transforming as I continue shopping there.
The Rabbit on the Run showroom is now open to the public every Saturday to Monday on the blossoming South side of Williamsburg. Pieces from past and current collections are available and all of the beautiful graphic clothing is one size fits all! I stopped by earlier this week and wanted to take everything home!
The store is located at 73 South 6th street between Berry & Wythe in Williamsburg. Around the corner is Diner and Marlow & Sons. Additionally, next door is the Brook Farm General Store--also worth a stop.
