These Hot Mesh chairs are new from Blu Dot. Aren’t they great? They remind me of patterns from Spain – the Barcelona sidewalks, and the patterns throughout the Alhambra.

I’d be happy to have one of each.

Get a closer look at the chairs here. See all of Blu Dot’s new designs here. And have a happy weekend wherever you are!

I stumbled across these photos by Trine of the Hoytrykk blog (it’s Norwegian). She made these tables using paint and vintage wallpaper. They are so cheerful and colorful for a kids’ room.

The Hoytrykk blog is new to me, and it’s so pretty – I am a fan.

Have a happy weekend!

Favorites: Vintage Rappelkiste Bunk Bed

Vintage Rappelkiste bunk bed via Rafa Kids

When I saw this “Rappelkiste” bunk bed (designed by Luigi Colani), I imagined how much I would have treasured an all-in-one creative space like this to call my own when I was a kid.

When I was young – I don’t quite remember how old I was – I used to climb up on the shelf in the closet in my bedroom and play up there. (Looking back, I have no idea how I fit up there – it was a 19th century farmhouse closet).

Did you have secret, special places where you played as a kid too?

Favorites: Ktaadn Tea Towels

Ktaadn tea towels

I love these two Ktaadn (pronounced “kuh tah dn”) tea towels, which I bought at Renegade Brooklyn this year.  The red pattern on the left is called “Knife’s Edge” and the red and blue pattern on the right is called “Net.” The linen fabric is soft and luxurious.

Ktaadn sells tea towels, pillows and notebooks in several different patterns and colors in their shop, all of which they screen print by hand in their studio near Portland, Maine. These towels aren’t in their shop yet, but I’d guess that they’re coming soon, and you can always contact Ktaadn to find out.

If you bookmark shops for gift ideas, this is a good one for your list.

Girl in Flowers cushion cover by Beneath the Sun

Beneath the Sun is a colorful, cheerful homewares and stationery collection by Australian designer Leah Bartholomew. I love this cushion cover – don’t you?

She has many more items in her shop: cards, tea towels, pillows, art prints and wrapping paper. Go take a look – her work will make you smile. You can also see her blog here.

Happy Father’s Day to all you awesome dads out there (including the dad of my two girls!).
