Pirates in the Boys’ Room

Pirate Fabric Vinyl Wall Decals by Love Mae via DelphineAhoy, mateys! How stinkin’ cute are these pirate ship fabric wall decals by Love Mae? Just think of the stories you could make up at bedtime about these guys. That octopus looks mighty sneaky. I wonder if he knows it’s International Talk Like A Pirate Daytoday??

vintage car and vintage robot vinyl fabric wall decals by Love Mae via DelphineWe’re not up for painting our son’s room this year, but his new room could certainly use some color and fun. I think these retro – cool decals are the perfect way to add some charm to his room without breaking a sweat with a paint brush. The stickers are made of adhesive fabric, so they are removable and reusable — I think he’ll have fun rearranging them. Love Mae also has some super adorable girls’ room decals (think ponies and woodland creatures and other charming scenes). They even have a circus scene. Ridiculously adorable!

renovation: plaid for the big boy bedroom

photos by DELPHINE

FINALLY! The plaid dresser is done and put in A’s bedroom. To be fair, I must admit that the dresser started with light blue and white stripes, so we had a head start.

Ever since we finished the room the cat has started hanging out in there.

ring me up: vintage telephones

You know how some places just have a super fun vibe about them? (Think the opposite of this blah boring boringness). Well, over the holiday weekend I went to a fantabulous party at a fellow wedding industry pal’s summer beach rental. A’s home has such a wonderful feeling to it. You walk in and know that there is a lot of fun going on there! I told her I felt like I was at summer camp as I oohed and ahhed over all the quirky details in the place (an open skylight in the bathroom; a fireplace in the dining room complete with rotisserie, a kitchy mural of hawaii in the basement). I fell in love with two things in particular: a giant vintage flower farm hand painted wood sign (promise next time I go over I’ll bring my camera), and a bubblegum pink rotary wall phone. Got me thinking …. hmmmm … my studio could use a vintage phone, couldn’t it? I found 3 phones I like so far (still searching for that perfect one).

1. Vintage mustard yellow telephone, Ebay.   2. Vintage aqua bell rotary telephone, Ebay.   3. Vintage aqua blue wall mounted telephone, Oldphoneworks.com

foxy wallpaper by ashley alexander

I AM smitten by Ashley Alexander’s (of I’m Smitten) new foxy wallpaper design for Studio Nommo. It looks great in a studio/office environment, but I think it would be equally lovely in a dining room. I’m envisioning a dining table with lots of birch candles, warm lighting, good friends, rustic wood dishes, and a steaming pot roast. And some popovers. And a bottle of yummy red wine. Mmmm. Now I’m hungry! Is it lunch time yet?

to do list: clean the studio

Normally I’m a fairly organized and tidy person. But lately it looks like a herd full of wild animals have been living in the studio. On the to do list today: clean up around here.

Red rim metal wire waste basket from Wisteria. I’ve got my eye on it as a wrapping paper holder, but I’m not quite sure if it’s tall enough.

decorate: kitten ornament

click on photo to enlarge.

Ajax the kitten is the best Christmas tree ornament ever. Though he does make the tree lean a bit.

holiday: day of the dead

photos courtesy Ruby Lang

Halloween is just around the corner … and so is The Day of The Dead. Each year the amazingly talented Ruby Lang lovingly installs an ofrenda within SoLo to celebrate the holiday. This year’s theme is “Alimenta Para El Almo” (“Food for the Soul”). She decorated with traditional sugar skulls, fresh flowers, religious artifacts, a basket of limes, and plenty of food. The altar stands about 12 feet tall and is chock full of treasures and tiny details. You can check it out through November 1st at SoLo (on Cedros Avenue in Solana Beach, CA).
