bodie and fou

Quick note today: I really like these bold, simple black-and-white prints from British online home-design shop Bodie and Fou.   

judy ledgerwood

When one of my favorite Pinterest pinners (is that a thing?) pinned Judy Ledgerwood the other day, her work looked so familiar—I was sure I’d written about her already. A quick look at my archives said I hadn’t. (Maybe it seemed familiar because it incorporates so many things I like: pattern, flowers, pretty color.) So [Read more]

a few botanicals

Mia Camareros Just a few botanicals from around the web. These are all simple, beautiful, and well-priced. (While you’re looking at that top one, check out all of the Buddy Editions, a great new collection.)

brent wadden

Forgive my blog delinquency! I’ve seen so much good art lately, and found so little time to write about it. Now, in the interest of butching things up around here (after so much pretty work by women), let’s look at these boldly geometric woven pieces by Brent Wadden, a Canadian living in Berlin. On first glance [Read more]

amanda reeves

Amanda Reeves‘s paintings perfectly satisfy my recent (oh, who am I kidding? constant) craving: art that’s minimalist but definitely pretty. (Serena and Lily also carries her work.)  

karin olah

Karin Olah uses printmaking techniques and natural fabrics in her abstract quilt-inspired paintings. The results are beautiful.

ferm living art

Who knew that Ferm Living, Danish purveyor of very cool home goods like pillows and espresso cups, sold lovely art as well? The prints are sleek and simple, with an appealing, muted pastel palette. The wallpaper is also nice—you could frame a section, or paper over an accent wall.  

sally england

Maybe it’s my 1970s early childhood, or my love of all things California, but I have a soft spot for wall hangings, when they’re simple and not too crunchy. Sally England works only on commission—that’s how much care and time is put into her deceptively simple macrame pieces. I like how some of them are just [Read more]

elise ferguson

I’m loving the geometry and color in Elise Ferguson‘s paintings. Some people just have an eye for composition—it’s so simple, but so ingenious.
