Trove is an unbelievable wallpaper company that makes wallpaper look like a piece of art. In fact, I'm considering purchasing an 18 in. square sample and framing it. They also just came out with this wallcovering that is printed wood-veneer made from sustainably harvested wood and bonus! is also low VOC. It comes in a variety of species including bamboo. How cool is this interior design world we live in???

Bottega Veneta, one of the most covetable bag designers, apparently has released a home collection based on its iconic weave design. I've included a photo of the bag's design for comparison purposes, just in case any crazy people reading my blog don't know what a Bottega bag looks like. The above table scape contains this element multiple times, including the placemat, the lamp and the pillow in the background. I believe the designer's home collection is sold through Bergdorf Goodman and includes much more than table items.

Have old sewing patterns you don't know what to do with? Turn them into a floral bouquet! I came across this craft on Country Home magazine's website. It's an interesting addition to a room that will definitely peak people's curiosity.
Step 1: For each flower, cut six 7-inch squares from the pattern. Stack and fold them accordion-style six times, forming a one-by seven-inch rectangle. Snip off the corners of the rectangle with scissors.
Step 2: Tightly twist a wire floral stem around the center of the rectangle.
Step 3: Fan out the paper, then pull apart each layer, creating the blossom.
I have always been an admirer of Ikat print, yet I own nothing in this pattern. Last week, I received the latest issue of Lucky, which featured this dress from Ann Taylor Loft. A steal at $69, I'm very much considering purchasing it. It also falls in line with one of my earlier blogs, stating I need more blue in my wardrobe. As soon as I saw this dress, I remembered a pillow from Crate and Barrel that I had come across a few weeks ago. Yes, Ikat has become a very influential pattern in both the fashion and interior design worlds.

So I have not blogged in going on 2 months, but have recently been inspired by Katy Elliott's blog. She is a master blogger, and I hope to be as good a blogger as her when I grow up. Anyway, I have found another awesome outfit/interior match! When I reflect upon my own wardrobe, blue does not appear in it very often. But, when it's put together like this, it makes me think I should add more of it. Check out how well these two feed off of eachother.
