We love doing custom designs and are so excited about these few that we just did! If you have an idea, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and share it! We would love to help create your vision.
The one above was done for a group of people and the customer had the charm monogrammed for each individual! So cute.

I know, I know... enough of a good thing. But I keep seeing Carleton Varney pop up and it just makes me smile. Love this window that Eddie Ross just blogged about here. He did it for the fabric company Carleton V.

Our visit to the Greenbrier has left my head swirling with dreams of big bold graphic prints. I feel like I have been living in black and white (or should i say beige and beige) for so long that it is time to bring some color back into my surroundings. Some of these designs below are actually just hand painted designs - which I find very inspiring because I am such a DIYourself-er. These large scale designs add immediate impact to these spaces.
The next 6 images are from the Greenbrier.

Here are some other wallpapers and painted patterns for inspiration.

REM songs define my tween years. His voice instantly takes me back to days on the bus. It is not surprising to learn that Michael Stipe has been busy with other art projects . Now he can add scuptor and photographer to his resume, as if he needed anything else. I discovered this while in Atlanta a few weeks back. On our way to dinner we walked up on a pack of gold wild foxes outside the new Sovereign building at 3344 Peachtree in Buckhead. Without even knowing who did the piece we were intrigued. They are really beautiful in a wild but controlled way. Foxes is Stipe's first large scale sculpture. Long ago (long long ago) Buckhead used to be wooded and actually had foxes running through it. Very cool. Here are some pics I took of it- they dont really do it justice though.

These wicker "Peacock Chairs" from the 70s have been popping up everwhere. I wrote a few weeks ago that our friend Bryce bought one in Atlanta. Here it is when she bought it and then below that you can see how good it looks in its new home! I am pretty sure it is Mama's Chair only!

We literally stumbled on a gem while in WV this past weekend. The Gibson studio is part of the Artist Colony at the Greenbrier. At first glance we thought these shops on the hill were more tourist gifty places, but they are actually galleries from local artisits. Gibsons Studios was our fave. It has a huge working studio where they produce these geological works of art.
