Favorite Fabric: Dandi Custom Fabrics

Here is one of the latest fabrics I’m oohhhing and ahhhing over.

Dandi is a Sydney based design house specializing in the design of modern Australian fabric and tableware. “The Dandi team is a group of trained industrial designers with a passion for beautiful and functional objects. {Their} aim is to share this passion through the creation of a range of modern and unique everyday products.”

I originally discovered their beautiful talent through Decor8 and was immediately drawn to the team’s block print style (one of my personal favorites).

The four leading ladies (pictured below) founded Dandi after meeting in college while studying industrial design. Leezar, Caroline, Mindi and Manuela design and create screen printed fabric and etched bamboo products for the home. While you can purchase pre-made home decor in their shop, you can also buy by the yard here.

I love the colors and I love the prints… I just wonder if they ship to the US? I sure hope so. Beautiful!

PS… I know my usual Friday Guest Blog Series is missing this week! I promise it will be here and back again next Friday – forgive my craziness, but hopefully the wonderful Art of Nesting shower pictures to come on Monday will make up for it!

A Buzzing Bumble Bee First Birthday!

A ‘bee’autiful first birthday party by a crafty mom (who happens to own Scissors.Paper.Cake) to which I can say I.Love.Much. How wonderful is this party for her daughter Scarlett’s first birthday?

From the adorable dessert buffet (and backdrop!) to the hand-designed invites and labels, I can’t decide which detail I like best. The color is wonderful though, isn’t it? I love to see spring parties in such a light and happy shade! Many more adorable pictures after the jump. Continue reading

Favorite Trend: Chevrons

I can’t help but share a recent trend (that I know is all to familiar with everyone) that I’ve been loving, and when I found these easy DIY ideas, they had to be shared! There’s something so simple and classic about a zigzag (or chevron) design - it compliments nearly every style from shabby chic (in light greys and whites) to ultra-modern (in bold, complimentary colors).

I love how subtle the chevron design on top of this dresser is, it’s a sweet surprise on an unassuming piece of furniture. Sunset Magazine shares the detailed instructions here.

And how wonderful are these pillows stacked casually across this Twinkle Living couch? While you can purchase them here, you might try your hand at sewing or painting the zigzag pattern from directions here.

Oh and I love this wall. Stephanie over at Sabbe created an entire accent wall out of contact paper and a very accurate measuring system. Wow!

And finally, designer Nick Olsen gave new life to an old rug by painting it chevron style.

And that’s my zigzag wrap up – I hope you all enjoyed and happy Tuesday!
