My obsession with MakeLike Wallpaper!

I guess I'm officially on a wallpaper kick these days, but I just had to share a local wallpaper company, MakeLike, which we have been following for some time now. They produce everything from hand screen-printed wallpapers, tea towels, posters and even a full range of product development services. I love this pattern 'Zig Zag' from their new Forest collection. Perfect for the cozy little reading nook so you can feel like you're reading in a a charming storybook forest. I hear next up is a geometry series... can't wait to see samples! Cheers, Carey

Scrapwood Wallpaper - Simple Wall Accents

When I see this wallpaper I envison my future tiny little cottage on the coast of Nova Scotia- super clean and modern except for this great rustic element on the walls. Check out Scrapwood Wallpaper by famed Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek, mimics scrap wood paneling in a simple, washable format. I'm happy to report we'll soon have these wallpapers available through Relish! Cheers, Carey

Archiform Shop Tour and Interiors Collaboration

Carey and I had such an inspirational day yesterday. It all began at a clients home with the goal of helping her create a functional Rug for the Living Room, but not too fancy for their budget and two little kids. We decided on FLOR in the end, but the pure wool variety. Next up, was a tour with our local Archiform and meeting with the co-owner, Anne De Wolf. They have a roster of amazing Portland historical renovations and recently, a few mid-century homes that we may help with the interiors. Here are a few shots of their cabinet shop and the salvaged Container Guest house they are remodeling! A day in the life of a designer and the people behind the scenes making beautiful and sustainable environments!

Custom Powder Coated Steel w/Douglas Fir side tables

I was so happy to deliver these custom, locally made side tables alongside our local Quarter Twenty furniture design studio. We started with some measurements and a quick sketch I had in mind a few months ago. The goal was to balance the linear and rounded elements of their other furnishings, but have tables in raw material with important functional drawers for books and bedside necessities. We scoured the home decor world for nice, functional side tables in steel, with a drawer, but all came up short. Enjoy!
