Loved seeing our copper pencil holder in Billie's Furnish round-up. If you've haven't checked out Billie Mag, we highly recommend it - lovely photographs and decor ideas!
In case you missed it... definitely check out Door Sixteen's Dressing Room with our Berry Black wallpaper, an eye catching orange bench, fab Nate Berkus rug and fiddle leaf tree. Now, that is one seriously good decor mix! (Image by Anna Dorfman.)
Was camping in Hawaii last week!
How did it get to be Friday again already?
Best part of camping? Little beach monkey nephews...
Best part of coming back? New Ferm Living Star Cushions.
Sleeping in a bed (with a new Ferm Living Bedspread? yes - bonus points!)
and, new Anthology Magazine. Happy Weekend!
Did you see Anna's lovely post about our new Half Moon collection over at Door Sixteen?
She mocked up her guest room with our Half Moon wallpaper which I (of course) think looks fantastic! And, I'm happy to report that all the Half Moon products are now in stock and shipping. I know this, because I just got a tracking number for mine...
Thanks again, Anna, for the awesome post!
We ADORE this nursery designed by Amy Sklar Design. She incorporated our Mountain Friends wallpaper into the reading nook and turned two of our duvet covers into custom fitted crib sheets, a pillow and a bumper!
What a beautiful ceiling too! Seriously, how great is this room? Soothing, serene, modern, but playful... Lucky baby!
Just got back from Mexico and catching up on things.
Mostly that means I've just been unpacking my new goodies, catching up on HBOGO, and updating our website. Which leads me to happily report that lots of the new collection is now in stock, yay!
Flipping through the new Elle Decor UK yesterday, I was delighted to see some ferm surprises.
Our house of money in the trending section... Side note, I just did my taxes, and could use one of those thing. Filled up.
I believe that is our Little Geometry pillow in Olive. Pretty!
The rest are from a fantastic apartment in Copenhagen. It is owned and designed by Mette Hagedorn who owns and interior store, Base 212. She used our Spear wallpaper in her bedroom, and we get peeks of it above and below!
She also did this amazing wallpaper installation. Using different wallpaper patterns, including our Dotty wallpaper, she cut them in to hexagons and arranged to create a unique and adorable accent. So ferm!
Just a few of my recent pics from Instagram. I guess I just like to take pics of my favorite things which are ferm, food and San Francisco at the moment. Above... a ferm copper cup, and below is the copper tray. I love them both equally.
The large, black wire basket holds all my bags. It is perfect because it is actually huge, not just large. And you can see everything it is holding so you won't forget you own that bag on the bottom of the pile...
Here's an English pork pie my mom made. It was perfectly yummy and fit perfect on my ferm platter. I was basically fated to eat the whole thing for breakfast.
99 cent oysters. I love cheap happy hours. And, I know, maybe the world as a general rule doesn't want to see pics of food, but aren't oysters so pretty?
Here's the Spear shower curtain, which I am really digging. The color combo is so beautiful and unique. Sadly, my tub needs a new paint job, but that's one of those things that is easier to close the curtian on.
Ferm flower pots. A new obsession has started.
I took these photos of a wallpaper installation my poor friend did of an old ferm pattern about 5 years ago. I've finally moved past the heartbreak and feel strong enough emotionally to post them. So here we go...Hopefully you can learn from her mistakes and avoid this wallpapering tragedy.
1. I thought this went without saying, but match the pattern repeat.
2. Unless you're some kind of pro with a craft knife, use a straight edge to cut the trim.
3. Don't cut the wallpaper horizontally.
4. Sponge off the wallpaper after you hang it to remove any excess paste.
5. Use a sharp blade to cut the trim. If not, you end up not getting a clean cut. It also helps with this to use a straight edge. See 2. above.
6. When cutting around outlets, light, curtain rods, etc., don't leave any space. Ideally you should take them down, but if that's not possible trim right up to the obstacle
I promise, wallpapering it totally doable. Just follow the instructions and try to have a good time with it. And now, at least you can rest assured that someone out there did a worse job than you ;)
