Just for kicks...

I had fun last week taking photos of my new PURE Kicks Collection of organic fabrics.  You may wonder about the name...  I was having fun messing around with my existing patterns - changing scale and colors - I did it just for "Kicks" OR the fun of it.  I loved the results so much I had the fabrics printed!  I'm so glad I did - I love the FRESH and FUN color combinations!!

Friday FUN Find { Design Shuffle Edition }

Hi, I’m Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, a fabulous online community of design lovers and professional from around the world who share their work and inspirations. It's a great place to browse pics of design projects for inspiration. As a writer, I'm lucky to visit cool design blogs as a guest blogger. I love Samantha's gorgeous new organic textiles... so beautiful. I'm excited to be here at PURE Inspired Design to do a Guest Edition of Friday Fun Finds. I had so much fun pulling these decorating ideas together. Hope you enjoy these fun finds.
Have a great Friday!   Book Art Design
I love these prints, available on Etsy or as DIY projects, on old book pages. The screenprint can be transferred to fabric for DIY textiles and pillows. Infinite possibilities. So fun!
  Chandelier Dining Room Design
This chandelier is such a sunny splash of color. I love the amber/yellow beads. This might make for a good DIY copycat project. Love it!
  Pet Silhouette Design
Love the yellow velvet button tufted sofa but the real finds are the pet silhouettes. I love silhouettes and think including the family pet (or fur person) makes for charming art.
  Custom Painted Wall Design
A custom painted wall is a great bedroom design idea. A little tape, some paint and a level is all you need to make it. Beyond the wall, love the large vintage lamps next to the bed. So chic.
  Yellow Cabinet Design
Okay, last yellow find... but I love this cabinet from Ikea. It would be great in an entry for shoe storage, the kitchen as a pantry or china cupboard, the bathroom... so many places.
  Pumpkin Latern Design
Love a simple but oh so pretty DIY project. These paper pumpkin shaped lanterns are so chic and easy to make! Perfect for a sophisticated fall party or Halloween. Bird Artwork Design
Birds are such a hot interior design element that doesn't seem to be fading in interest or charm. I love these owls that follow the bird trend but feel more original. Beautiful artwork.
  Paper Wreath Accent
Another beautiful paper project, this wreath is made from book pages. A great use for that marked up copy of The Great Gatsby or an outdated textbook or encyclopedia. [ Images 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 ] Head on over to Design Shuffle where you can get inspired by the talented work of Los Angeles interior designers to New York interior designers and more!

Color sneak peek...

I'm just about ready to send my new patterns to the printer!!  Here is a sneak peek at my new color palette!  It includes:  dark gray, fresh green, turquoise, indigo, and mustard.  Of courses the colors will not appear all at once on the same fabric and they will be popped against light natural organic cotton, but I wanted to show you the entire palette.  I'm excited - I can't wait to share the actual fabric!!

HAPPY Random Dining...

I'm always looking for inspiration and today I discovered a Dutch website called vtwonen with tons of inspiration.  It has a lot of photos - I found these great dining pictures under { Inspiration - Food } or { wooninspiratie - Eten } I really love these dining spaces - they are simple, relaxed and a little quirky.

HAPPY Dining everyone!!

Falling off the treadmill is a Royal Pain....

On Friday I nearly fell off my treadmill while watching Royal Pains because I needed to stop to capture this scene.  I just LOVE this bedroom!  The color scheme is so pretty - yellow, cream, and gray with pops of green.  Love the Dwell sheets, wallpaper, yellow and cream screen, iron bed...  All set off by the the white trim and french doors... Notice the attached artist studio - LOVE IT!  And does anyone know who makes that wallpaper??!!

Have a happy Monday everyone!!
