} Shade on Shape



Oh, the power of a pop of color in a monochrome room! Sure, the tone on tone or black&white color ideas have their power and benefits, BUT I’m a fan for color (my living room IS turquoise, after all.), and mostly great color combos. Call it an ex-graphic designer default setting, perhaps…

Shade on Shape‘s emphasis is all about simple yet powerful (thru color) home objects. Vibrant pops! :)

} Atelier D




I truly adore Atelier D! (Even blogged about it before) It all has a sense of aesthetics that is SUCH my style! Plus, it’s from Montreal (hello, home!).

Jonathan’s material of choice is plywood but also acrylic, and he turns them into anything from clocks to pencil boxes to coasters. Inspired by the minimalist Swiss architecture movement, there is very much of a geometric aspect in his work, which I totally love as you probably can imagine.

Go check it out! :)

I got gripped by Weckery‘s simplicity today!

Focus is not on colors really, more in little details in textures and shades and pure shapes. How about that pitcher, huh? So stunning!

Plus, high contrast pictures are also always my favorite. ;)

Also, I am taking a porcelain throwing class at Atelier Make right now, and love it so. I took pottery classes in the past, using a different kind of clay, the more terracotta color one, which I found easier. Porcelain has been my favorite for a while tho, so I’m extra-stoked!

Obviously, my class pieces (below) are not yet cooked nor glazed, but still, I think they look quite nice! To be followed… ;)

A simple enough utilitarian item, rope has been around every living souls for centuries. Making it current and with another purpose is quite more difficult, tho.

From Brisbane in Australia, Zillpa has done just that, delightfully. From bags to coasters and bowls, stitched in the color of your choice, rope can now take a new path and adorn your everyday life!

Coasters are such a simple affordable everyday life item, but can also easily add color and style to your living quarters! Totally digging these colorful and graphic re-purposed ceramic tile ones by Tilissimo!

} Bookhou

Last Holiday season at PucesPop, my in-front booth neighbor was Bookhou. As much as I was thrilled to have something beautiful to look at for 3 days, it was also a big bad torture, since I knew it would be impossible to resist a purchase when the gorgeousness is staring you right in the face for so long.

And I indeed succumbed, as you can see the pictures above. I loooOOOooove my bag!! It’s “so me”, with it’s screenprinted colors and texture mixes of fabric and leather and hardware. It’s big size (with inside pocket) is super convenient too, since I always carry a lot of crap when I go out in the world (let’s just say no one complains when they need an Advil/kleenex/gum/compact camera/so-much-more, since it’s available right with me at all times. lol). When not in use, I hang it on my entry closet knob, on display, like a piece of art. It’s just too pretty to hide.

Everyone I know LOVES Bookhou, too. I’m not even kidding. Never heard anyone say otherwise, ever.

So, you should check out the shop, and blog, like now. ;)
