Rachel Powell is a surface pattern and wallpaper designer. You might have seen some of the prints and wallpapers by her before, but it was this screenprint above that really caught my eye .. i love the simplicity and the paperbag background color ... the fabrics are available by the meter and with just a little bit of imagination you will be able to transform your home or even just a few pieces within your space.
Her prints are playful and give a general sense of happiness. Definitely something you would love to see the moment you step through the door after a long day at work.
The cheerful nature of Rachel Powell's creations have found it's way into my heart and hopefully your homes as well :)

Veronika started her business a little over 3 years back on Etsy. Her focus has always been on great customer service and personal approach to each customer and I believe that is just the best to way to grow a business ... I remember my first post about Cherrywalls a couple of years back and i am truly happy Cherrywalls has a huge collection beautiful and easily replaceable wall decals. The new Underwater and Safari are great and will be a hit in every bedroom.
Veronika told me her inspiration comes from blogs about modern decor,
moms blogs and Pinterest. Her belief that quality and safety of her
products are the most important things made her decide to choose and buy
materials and make wall decals. Every decal is made to order in USA,
which means the customer can request any size or color to make it a
perfect decor piece for baby's nursery or kids room. Although
Cherrywalls make wall decals for any room they do focus on kids rooms
and nurseries in particular when creating new designs.

This post is brought to you by Photowall.
great pleasure that I am writing today about a wonderful collaboration
between Photowall and Fine Little Day. Elisabeth Dunker was invited to curate a collection of five wallpaper designs from five of her favorite artists: Mogu Takahashi, Kindra Murphy, Klara Bothén, Cecilia Pettersson and Steffie Brocoli.
And exactly as what we are used from this multi-talent the result is
stunning. Not sure what my favorite design is ... I sincerely love them all.
But if I had to buy just one I think I would pick Mogu, my boys are so into drawing lately and I believe this wallpaper wold only encourage them to keep on doing just that ... but the wooden
village would give such a bright and special feel to a room ... you see very difficult for me to make a choice... why not
buy both :)!
Click here to find the wallpaper designs and please let me me know which one you would choose!

Two sisters, one studio and a wonderful collection paper products ... that is studio Pimpelmees from the Netherlands. Starting out with unqiue and stylish birth announcements followed by other cards, small canvasses and customized wedding invitations studio Pimpelmees now also sells cool wall murals!
and their latest addition is a collection of beautiful wall murals ... 'butterflies and birds', the 'deep sea' or 'fly away' they will all make a sublime wall in your child's room.
[MORE BELOW THE FOLD]
I was just thinking if I were to have daycare centre I would consider
hanging these murals on one of the walls
... I'm sure kids will just dream away
by looking at the patterns.

The new wallpaper collection from Hibou home is just spot on ... soft pastel colors with prints that kids will love too ... I have been a fan of Hibou home for a couple of years now and find it so admirable how Emma Lycett, founder and creator is growing her business in these which we all know not so easy times.
Great way to start this week I believe and lot more to come ... a new DIY project tomorrow .. a book review in a special way and some pinterest fun. So hope to see you more often this week!
ps. I love the papiermache animal pieces on the wall .. where are they from, who made them?

Yesterday I saw Holly's post about Sian Zeng's amazing magnetic wallpaper and knew it was a perfect fit for BloesemKids.
Not only do I think the imaginative scenes on the wallpapers are very beautiful... I absolutely LOVE the idea for kids to be able to 'play' with their walls ... which child doesn't like to paint or draw on walls? Well mine do for sure, yesterday I went in the boy's room and yes Kiet had drawn a green bus above his bed :) perhaps these magnets will keep him from doing this in the future?
Sian was born in China and moved to Hungary with her parents when she was seven. She graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2009 with a BA in Textile Design and has since <read more>
created her own collection of fabrics, illustrated stuffed bears
and cushions and of course wallpapers ...
The wallpapers and many more beauitful things from Sian's collection are available through her online shop right here... thanks Holly for the tip!
