Three dimensional design was never really my strongest subject, but my college roommate was an amazing furniture designer whose work I always found to be really inspiring. You may or may not be interested in doing design work in this field, but it's always great to look outside of your own category to push your work forward- after all, I wouldn't have designed my favorite poster to date if it wasn't for Christina!
Flowering Pillow by Julianna Holowka: while definitely out of my price range, I still love this pillow. It comes in different colors, and the selection is beautiful. As a designer, I'm also in love with the composition of where the flowers fall on the area of the pillow.
Pretty Much Anything at Beccalights: the Blush candle, above, is by far my favorite so far, but all of Beccalight's candles are well made. The packaging is really cute - an especially amazing job was done on the Holiday collection. When it comes to photographic and packaging presentation, Beccalights definitely raises the bar in the indie community.
Josephine Lamp by Julianna Holowka: another really great piece from the designer of the Flowering Pillows. I love the lampshade - it reminds me of many different organic things, from layered feathers to layered leaves, but its also so slick and clean.
Woodland Owls Magnet Trio by Rubyfaz: I just thought these were really sweet. I love the little illustrations. Cute, cute, cute!
Dishtowels by Sweetpea Handcrafts: the dishtowels at Sweetpea are great! I love that it's mostly white - it really gives the pattern and the trim the ability to pop out without being too busy. My favorite by far is the one above.
