In collaboration with Pip Studio, a famous Dutch studio, Eijffinger presents a unique wallpaper collection.

"The wallpaper in this collection shows a complete set of many strong designs in fashionable colours, like firemen red and ochre yellow as well as beautiful natural powder colours like soft mint and sweet grey."

Available in Australia.

Pip have also collaborated with Brian Yates "to create this delightful and cheerful collection of trend-setting wallpapers. An eye for detail with layered prints in the most amazingly 'happy' colour combination's makes Pip a rather unique concept."

Classical garden birds sitting on delicate branches of blossom sparkle in gold and silver. Trailing florals interspersed with butterflies and a cute cross-stitch design can be used with more calming stripes and polka dots.

Available in the UK from Tangletree Interiors and Wallpaper Direct.

Simone of The Bottom of the Ironing Basket recently asked me where the floral wallpaper in Elin's room from my Craft & Creativity post is from. Well, it is from the adorable Pip Studio. I love their motto: "Happy Products for Happy People".

Pip Studio is a Dutch design company based in Amsterdam selling bed & bath collections, stationery, cushions, tablecloths and of course, an extensive collection of wallpaper.

Pip's handwriting is characterized by a warm, and almost intimate, touch and feel. It is often a mix and match concept of layered designs with a keen eye for small details and special finishes, combined with a subtle colour palette.

Salt Water sale

Laura's Design Inspiration
This little mood board inspired the high summer story of delicate silks, etched dragonflies, and gilded details.

Saltwater is a British clothing design label based in London and Cornwall.
They make women's clothing with a fresh, soft, vintage feel. Think pretty vintage printed skirts, hand embroidered dresses, faded print tunics and fine knits. I am loving their blue and white China bird skirt in the last pic, which has over 50% off in the sale!

Craft & Creativity

Annie's new room by Craft & Creativity
Birthday cake by Craft & Creativity
I wanted to share with you Craft & Creativity, a Swedish lady named Helena who posts the prettiest pics of her house on Flickr. I have been admiring her pics for over five months now and recently featured her necklace hanger in my Flickr Faves post, 'Vintage blue'.

At the weekend she posted some new pics of her little daughter, Annie's, room. I immediately fell in love with the tea/coffee set with the cutest wooden cakes. Doesn't she have just the nicest taste!

How fab is Annie's room with the hand crochet kitchen towels, and pretty storage solutions?

I adore the bright patterned cushions and floral wallpaper in Elin's room, and especially the hand made 'E' cushion.

Serena & Lily

Serena & Lily storage bins
I have just found these gorgeous storage bins from Serena & Lily. I love that the print is a glossy watertight coat: so many uses from storing your icy cold drinks at parties to dressing up your outdoor space with the window boxes.

Serena & Lily retro fan
I am also loving the pool blue colour of the wall and the fabric strands tied to the retro fan in the above pic. I think the fabric strands make it look so pretty.

Serena & Lily daybed
The pale yellow and green bedding on the gorgeous daybed looks so fresh. I love the Moroccan pouffe and the low level lighting.

Serena & Lily duvet cover
This duvet cover, with the embroidered peacocks on the bottom, is fantastic, as is the low chandelier. The white voile curtains and white polished floor keep it so clean and fresh.

Serena <br />& Lily bed
I like the mix of prints on this bed set against the paneled walls which gives it a vintage touch.

The above photos are from Katya De Grunwald, an English photographer whose work has appeared in, amongst others, World of Interiors, Elle Decoration, Martha Stewart Living, and House & Garden. She takes the most beautiful photographs from interiors to fashion to the everyday.

I love the so pretty vintage looking pics that are subtly full of shine and texture. I especially love the quirkiness in the first photo.

The Rice DK Autumn/Winter 2009 catalogue is now up on their website and is full of beautiful images like those above. Danish designer house Rice DK "specializes in fair trade homewares with a great strong design and social ethic. Rice is fair trade certified to SA8000 and works closely with the communities that produce and manufacture its products."

I just love the fabric picture frames on the pink fridge and I so want to get their pale pink rolling pin in the last pic to match my kitchen baking utensils.
