This living room fascinates me. It starts with a very simple and bold layout — a modern sofa and light, and a large painting on the wall — but then unexpectedly creates an atmospheric and subtle mood thanks to its gentle colours. Via LivingEtc.
The WalterFilm Gallery site has an astonishing collection of film posters, lobby cards, photos, stills and more from all over the world — here's a few of the posters that I especially liked. These are works of art as much as advertising — wouldn't any one (or two, or three) be lovely to have framed on a wall? Via Design Observer.
Rachael of Number 8 will be showing this special Alphabet Soup archival print in the Art House Co-op's Scavenger Project, which opens in Atlanta, Georgia, on January 23rd. Digitally rendered from an original drawing, it's been printed with archival Ultrachrome pigment inks on archival quality matte paper and is available from her shop. As an added bonus, Rachael will also be donating 10% of this month's Number 8 sales to raisingmalawi.org.
Genevieve of Paddywaak just got this fab pair of vintage Tiffany blue ceramic vases into her shop! They look rather like twisty ruffles, and remind me of something you'd see in a chic 1940s interior. They're sold as a set, so you can use them as bookends (as shown here), or as part of your decor — either sitting pretty on a shelf, on your desk as an elegant pair of pencil holders, or even in the bathroom with cotton balls. More details here.
