I fell in love with their colorful knitwear a long time ago, but always in the context of fashion. When I came across the 2011 Missoni Home collection my Missoni obsession reached new levels. I’m usually one for all white bedrooms but these bold duvets and woven knits are making me a color convert. The only bad thing is the prices.. Missoni Home is NOT cheap. But there is good news for us Missoni lovers- Missoni has collaborated with Target and will include over 400 pieces of men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, and of course home decor. The collection debuts September 13, 2011 and I know I will be first in line!

all in the family

Family photos often tend to be an eye-sore

Cluttered on dressers and sofa tables, frames end up collecting dust as opposed to displaying the memories of family and loved ones. I’ve come across some great interiors which display their family photos gallery style. The sepia and black & white images create a cohesive look as well as give a nod to the past. The mismatched frames in neutral colors lend to the “collected over time” appearance. So why not take your family photos from dull & drab to dramatic and engaging? Below are some great examples!

God save the King

This past weekend I saw the much talked about King’s Speech and absolutely loved it.

One thing I was immediately drawn to was all the wallpaper! Wallpaper often gets a bad wrap but I find the geometric Art Deco prints as well as the classic Victorian Damasks and florals to be beautiful. Wallpaper patterns, like the ones featured below, look completely contemporary when paired with modern lines or when used for emphasis as a statement wall. 

Here are some of my favorite patterns inspired by the movie:

all patterns are by Bradbury & Bradbury with the exception of image 3 & 7 which are by Rosie’s Vintage Wallpaper
