Rocker Chic Quilts

by Lynn Byrne

By Lynn Byrne. Quilt and “edge-y” are generally not in the same sentence.  Colorful, graphic, sentimental, granny but no way “edge-y.”

That is true until you see the quilts of Boo (Love the name–To Kill a Mockingbird anyone?) Davis.  Boo says she makes quilts “just like your metal-loving half blind grandmother would.”

OK, I agree with the metal loving part, but no one who is half blind could make these.  Crank up the Guns and Roses and take a look.

A Lucite Lovely

by Lynn Byrne

By Lynn Byrne. When a girl comes across some awfully hip chairs in 2 wildly diverse publications in the same month (Hamptons Cottages and Gardens in the photo above and Better Homes and Gardens below), she can’t help but take notice.

The Mademoiselle chair from Kartell has been an “it” chair for some time now.   Still, I am really digging the lucite base (it also comes in black), and with lucite so trendy at the moment (click here to read about it), this chair deserves another look.

Fall Preview from West Elm

by Lynn Byrne

By Lynn Byrne. It is the first day of summer, but a sneak peek at West Elm’s upcoming fall merchandise just landed in my mailbox!  Such a gorgeous picture, I had to share.  I adore the woven wood chandelier!  Lots of other goodies too, like those orange accent pieces.  Can’t wait until it hits the stores!  Click here for more.

Light the Way: A Gorgeous Exterior Lantern

by Lynn Byrne

By Lynn Byrne. Finding outside lighting that is attractive and the right scale (bigger is better), is not an easy task.  The Ravenspoint lantern from the Urban Electric Company has such classic good looks that it pairs well with a variety of architectural styles.  It is hard to go wrong with this light.  The lantern is one of those products that perfectly matches my aesthetic.  I hope you like it too.

The Ravenspoint in the country.  

The Ravenspoint in the city.  

I would love to see your exterior lighting and hear where you found it.   Just hit the contact button and email me low res. jpegs.  I will do a future post if I hear from enough of you.

Temporary Wallpaper for Kids from Tempaper

by Lynn Byrne

By Lynn Byrne. Lolliprops Inc., the maker of  the self-adhesive, repositionable, temporary wallpaper known as Tempaper has launched a line for kids.  The perfect thing, since the little buggers change so fast.  (I should know, because suddenly all my boys are in high school.  How did that happen?!)

So cute. And green. And with every purchase they donate to wildlife and environmental conservation.  We sure need that at the moment (especially with the awful oil spill).

Right now 4 patterns are available.
