Inspiration: Stuff and Things

Isn’t it amazing the amount of new things that come out every week that we usually want or sometimes need? So many talented people out there making and thinking up new and cool ideas. These are all the things I was inspired by on my web travels. I wonder if they will inspire your Monday?

Coco Cafe

I would love one of these right now! It sounds yummy: fair trade coffee + hydrating coconut water = a hydrated buzz and the packaging is HOT, but the best bit is these guys are really making a business to be proud of with donations from their profits going to promote good nutrition and a balanced diet to underprivileged kids in the US.

Coco Cafe: Getting the Shot from B&E Studios

Welsh Tapestry

Going back to my roots here, isn’t it funny how we do this as we get older? I was surrounded by these Welsh blankets as a child and I didn’t really see the appeal, but now I am mad for them!

dbO Handmade Crockery

Beautiful and original ceramics and furniture from this Handmade business in Connecticut. Husband and wife team together to make lovely lamps too, she is the ceramicist and he the wood aficionado.

Tote Bag by Doug Johnston

Saw these gorgeous handmade cord bags and sculptural storage baskets, on one of our favourite blogs, Remodelista last week. They have a lovely nautical feel, I imagine myself walking somewhere on the French Riviera loaded with cheese, wine and bread. Love the simplicity.

Stella Necklace by Dannijo

Brilliant combo of heavy metal in a feminine shape. Would add some drama to any outfit. Been coveting this for a while…

Socks by Antipast

I became a fan of these socks via the wonderful sfgirlbybay Blog. Hand knitted by a mother and daughter outfit. You can buy them via Ped Shoes.

Deer and Tree Wooden Lights for Kids by Ferm Living

Big fan of Ferm Living and was very happy to find these super cute lights designed by Anne Wendlandt via the Decor8 Blog where I always go to get great ideas for my home. Got my eye on these for juniors nursery.

Diamond Lights by Eric Therner for FRAMA

Love these Diamond light bulbs and love the packaging. I would probably not be able to throw the gorgeous boxes away and would end up with a cupboard full.

The Jimmy by Native Shoes

My mate has a pair of these and I love them. I am still trying to decide on a colour for our Vancouver rainy weather. They are lightweight and really well made. And Native is a based Vancouver company!

Kids Stationery by Paper Art

I would send these myself! Love writing short notes to friends and family to remind them I am thinking of them. Check out their website for a massive range of cards and stationery. They plant a tree in a US national forest for every order made and all products are made out of either 100% post consumer recycled paper or alternative non-tree fibers. Brilliant.

Bare Bones chair by Ben Forgey

The Bare Bones chair has lovely driftwood legs with a clear perspex seat. Inspiring idea…
