Trend spotting: Handwoven wall hangings

A how-to by A Beautiful Mess

I've got the feeling lately that trends in the home decoration and interior world come and go just as fast as those in the fashion madness. Yesterday we had the copper and marble craze, now it's wall hangings. Right, wall hangings. But not the darf dusty persian tapestry that grandma likes to put up on her wall but handmade fringes on wooden sticks that look like they could hang in a teepee.

After spotting those pettable carpets on two blogs, on pinterest and now lately even on anthropologie.com my nose really smells a trend here. I even kinda like it, what do you think?
I'm not sure yet if I'll let one of these fuzzy mops move in with me but if I do, it's gonna be handmade. But I guess that's obvious.

On The Hunt: Acrylic Office Chair

via
While flipping through a home magazine recently, I discovered a picture of an office that had a clear acrylic chair as an office chair. It looked very light and modern and I've been keeping an eye out for an affordable acrylic chair ever since. My favorite is the Kartell Ghost Chair, but like with all other designer furniture it's quite expensive. Ikea has a nice one as well (the one in the image above) so if you're looking for a cheaper option too, go check out the Ikea chair.


My quest for the perfect transparent chair isn't over yet but I'll hunt down the perfekt one eventually, I hope.


Love,

Pretty Little Fakes: Flash Tats


Summer, sunshine, festivals and flashy tattoos. These little fake skin images have been pretty dead the past years, I would say. Unless you were six years old maybe. But now they seem the have a beautiful revival in the form of cute golden and shiny tattoos. They are from the American brand FlashTat and can be purchased via Blissany as well.

Bargain Season Has Come Upon Us

Bag, yellow skirt, striped shirt, bracelet, blouse, t-shirt, black-white skirt

Sale is my favorite fashion-season, naturally. Pretty items get even a little more pretty with a sale tag on, don't you think? I've already scouted through the shops in Berlin and have just now started to scan the online world for great lasst-minute-summer-bargains. In the collage you can see my favorites so far...

Pineapple Galore


1. Pillow 2. Tote 3. Ceramic Box 4. Necklace 5. Print 6. Clock
Tropical prints are all the rage these days. It seems like there a palm trees, flamingos and pineapples on shirts, pants, walls, carpets - everywhere. And I must say, I'm growing pretty fond of it. I even printed some palm tree pillows for my couch (tutorial to follow). But first, these lovely pineapple items above to get in the mood.

Best,
