Happy Holidays!

Just wanted to wish you a light-filled, love-filled, laughter-filled end to your year! We are going to be taking a little break next week (mostly to catch up on shelter magazines and Breaking Bad), so wanted to say HAPPY NEW YEAR too. We'll be back next year with lots of new things including a new sample sale page, a new blog design (you can't wait, right?), new products, our 5 year anniversary (time flies!), new things to wallpaper...

Thank you so very much for helping make 2011 such a great year for us! It means so very much to have you read our blog and support - we appreciate it immensely. Here's looking forward to a very clever 2012!

Wild Dining

Gold is an all year thing, you know, so don't burn out on over the holidays, okay? I mean just check out this fab dining room accent wall pic from the lovely Vanessa De Vargas. Pretty, pretty!

Vasing Things Up

The quality of this book arrangement is almost as bad as the quality of the photo, no?

Be sad no more. Nothing like a Ferm vase and some horizontal placements to make things feel more crisp and colorful (and less grainy...)!

Like Wallpaper for Chocolate

Talk about a love story... Don't you just adore this sweet chocolate shop makeover (including our wilderness wallpaper!) (via designsponge).

Ho Ho Ho!

In case you want to check out what I'm giving and planning to receive...from my (very generous) self this year!

Out with the Old, in with the New

Striped wallpaper went up last night.* I love them even more than I thought I would. Starting the black stripe at the top seems to make the room taller and the horizontal placement makes the room feel bigger. It is like I'm living in a 500 sq ft palace.

In other news, I decided to makeover this tray because the three other patterns weren't enough. Will show your the afters if/when I finish the revamp!

*For the record, I don't recommend wallpapering at night in a room that lacks a proper overhead light.

Get a Jump on It

I try to avoid things that seem too trendy (unless they are animal print related...or birds. Wait, or stripes, or anything Moroccan. Oh, or faux furry or vampirey). [Side note: Notice I didn't say wallpaper because it is a proven CLASSIC!] But, how can I not get on board with Pantone's color for 2012, Tango Tangerine? Especially when it is right at my ferm finger tips. Let's start things off with a triangle of tangerine on one of my favorite pillows!
How about we butter up some toast on this orange buttering board? Sound good? So technically, you're right, it is more of a fiesta orange than a tango tangerine. But, no biggie, it is still bright, energetic, feeling positive, feeling employable, and will make your 2012 extra toasty!
Light it up, 2012!
Just a spot of tea? Just a spot of tangerine. So now, orange you glad it is almost the weekend? JOKE. But, really, aren't you so glad it is almost the weekend? Me too!

Bienvenido a Miami

I can't really explain how much I love seeing these Ferm Living vases in people's spaces, because they happen to be my favorite ferm item at the moment. I just got this one last month, and have another one the way. Trust me, they are good. Okay, you still don't trust me?

How about trusting Elle Decor then? See how pretty they look in the Elle Decor Show House in Miami? Images via Sketch 42.

Sound the Alarm

I think what we are seeing here is our fun chemistry flasks hanging out with a most beautifully designed fire extinguisher (via emma's design blog).
