Cozy Winter. Part I

Yesterday when I woke up it was snowing again...!
I am sure that If I had a little house in the mountain like this I would feel much better :)

Petit Antoine's Room

I don’t know if I like better the bedroom or “le Petit Antoine” himself.  How cute is this boy?!! The furniture comes from a chic kids shop in London called Bobo Kids.
I love that green toddler bed and the accents in red and grey. It is a great combination for a boy's room. The steel cabinet and the plastic cushion add a rock and roll feel to make it lees traditional. 

I don’t get to see what the rug is made of. Is it cow skin?

I got into knitting last year and I have to say that I am hooked! Today I came across these pictures and I laughed out loud because I saw myself going completely nuts and knitting everything possible with those XXL needles!! For God’s sake where did she get them?

I have to say that I love what she did especially the cushions and the cover for the large vases.

I think she is making one of those cushions that I like!

I have been looking for TV stands like crazy and finally I found what I wanted: a small, discreet Lucite Shelf. Ebay is a great source for finding acrylic furniture at a resonable price.
I like Lucite in small doses always surrounded by other pieces made of warmer materials like wood, textile or natural fibers.
Here are some interesting pieces that I found during my TV stand research:

Atlanta Home Magazine Via Delight by Design
 I am not sure Lucite is practical for a dining table but I like the look of it.
Looks great mixed with traditional furniture.
Desk from Plexi-Craft NY Via Unplggd.
Perfect coffee table for small spaces. CB2 sells the same one.
I want to own this desk from Pieces!!

NYIGF 2011

This has been my first year in the New York International Gift Fair. I am used to the London design fairs were you can see almost everything in a couple of hours. The extension of this exhibition caught me by surprise! The first day I ended exhausted but I also had to come back the next day (this time with light jacket, comfy shoes and a bottle of water) Anyway, it was worth it. Here are some pictures of the things I liked the most:

Zentique was hands down one of my favorite stands 
 I always liked the idea of a seetee as an alternative seating for a dining table 

The quality of the Chelsea Fabrics furniture range is great and the laquered
colors are beautiful. I particularly liked this Mid-Century inspired chair.
 I love spindle chairs so I was happy to see that Julian Chichester
created a version of it. In their catalog they show a very similar chair
with a faux bamboo finish but this one is nicer.
Manglam Arts came from India to exhibit their nice range of 
mother pearl inlaid furniture and vintage quilts.
 I want that purple chest of drawers for my daughter's room NOW!!!
Beautiful artwork from Briana Sophia for Natural Curiousities.
Glass bottles from Peddlers
My friend K reflected on the mirror :)
These faux animal heads from Roost are cute for children bedrooms.
 Nice chandelier from Ro Sham Beaux

Block Printed Fabrics

So I am officially obsessed with block printed fabrics. Everything started with my crush for John Robshaw a long time ago. Since then I met Peter Dunham and with him all the brands that he carries in his LA store, Hollywood at home. I was there last year and I considered bringing my luggage and staying there for at least the rest of the trip. Mr. Dunham himself was there but I didn't have the courage to ask him :)
Here are some of my thousand favorite block print fabrics ... right now. (I am sure I will be posting more in the future)

Udaipur fabric from Peter Dunham Textiles
This one is actyally nicer in reality. 

Kashmir Paisley fabric from Peter Dunham. 
I think this one would very cute in a girl's room

Samarkand fabric from Peter Dunham

Indian Pear fabric from Robert Kime

Borada Indigo fabric from Lisa Fine
Very nice for bedroom curtains

Rajmata fabric from Peter Dunham
I would use this one on the headboard
