Hi! We moved our Ferm Living Shop, Clever Spaces Blog over to here (http://www.fermlivingshop.com/blogs/cleverspaces/). Please come visit us!
So... I learned a little bit about how to Photoshop over the weekend. I know, I think it was way past time to do this too! Prepare yourself for some new roundups, things with colorbars, animated gifs, and what not. This was my practice in which I chose my favorite things from the new Spring collection; i.e. things I am about to preorder :)
Just perusing the Feb issue of Real Simple, when lo and behold...
Ferm Living Shop's A Week of Dishcloths got a shout out - so fun!
I use mine all the time. Right now, I've been working the Monday. I actually split the set with my mom, and it has been reported that she likes hers a lot too (even though, in an extremely selfish move, I steered her in the direction of not taking my favorite patterns).
If dishcloths aren't your cup of tea, might I also recommend A Week of Tea Towels. Again, rumor has it, I might have given some of these away, yet I still seem to have all my favorite patterns here. One can't be too selfish with the Ferm. On the off chance you're wondering, I'll note that just recently my hair guy suggested I rock some Lizzy Caplan bangs. In theory, this sounded extremely promising. In practice, they read a bit more Jim Carey circa Dumb and Dumber. You win some, you lose some.
Back to Real Simple. So, I tried this. Walking backwards on a treadmill is much, much harder than it looks. I'm sure that's a good thing from a health perspective, but it might not worth trying to do for the first time in front of other people is all I'll say.
I was over at my friend's house for a little concert of sorts recently. She's used our Waldots as a backdrop for her piano wall. I still love this discontinued design! Which made me think to tell you that a lot of our older wallpapers have just been discontinued. If you've had your eye on a pattern, be sure to get on it before it's gone! :(
Did you see that Ferm Living just debuted their new collection for 2014. Not surprisingly, we LOVE, LOVE LOVE it. I am getting those plant stands STAT.
And this blanket. Yum!
Look at all those pretty pillows too! Let's take a close up...
This table cloth is basically takes my breath away.
Just. Wow. Love.
Lots of fun new things for the kitchen too!!
Cuteness! We'll post the new kid's collection tomorrow and be back with more info about when we'll have this lovely new collection in the US on our site when we have it. So exciting!
Woah, this holiday season is getting so busy. Have you bought your loved ones something ferm yet? I sure have. If not, here's some extra inspiration - we love this under $50 gift guide on Design*Sponge complete with our Diamond Treasure Boxes and Star Trays. You obviously don't have to spend a lot to show how much you care so long as it is on ferm :)
Just got back from a teeny, tiny vacation at The Parker in Palm Springs. One thing I wanted to put on the record was this. Ten gallon hats should be more popular than they are. Such a nicely shaped, dramatic object that connotates some many stories and so much history.
If Jonathan Adler likes it, so should you :)
I also recently acquired one, so am biased. It is so interesting how some trends come and go... Luckly, now you know to watch out for ten gallon hats :) Let's do this thing. And... in a more job related note, Ferm will never go out of style. We're always a good bet!
How adorable is Lucca's room featured in a beatiful home tour yesterday on Design*Sponge.
We're a tad biased because she is surround with Ferm Living's Ribbed Wallpaper in Turquoise. Regardless, though, this room is so lovely and sweet!
And what an adorable little girl, too!
Let's take a road trip through Northern France to Chez Ric & Fer, shall we?
For the sake of being chic in France, let's drive that car. Might as well.
Let's have a bit of a refreshment in some polished silver before we head upstairs.
And then, Oui, let's sleep under our Spear wallpaper!
How unexpected and cool is that? Okay, maybe it wasn't that unexpected since you're reading our blog. But still. We love it.

Finally got my hand on a copy of the fall issue of DIY magazine within which I wallpaper a lot of things. My favorite project was the remix wallpaper screen I made to hide my nonfunctioning fireplace. More like, it would function if my landlord had cleaned the chimney in the last 30 years. Which he has not.
Runner up is this wildflower wallpapered screen.
I also spray glued some ribbed wallpaper to canvas and hung it up in Jonathan Adler's lamp easel, which is a great way to elevate (both figuratively and literally) artwork and wallpaper in my opinion.
Getting my hair cut is one of my favorite ways to spend time. Thus, reading the new Dwell magazine with our Half Moon basket, while waiting to get my hair cut was an event unparalleled.
A big (man-hands sized in this case) thumbs up to Anna at Door Sixteen for the shout out!
The new Ferm Living Catalog came out today! New pillows? Check. I'll be getting the blue one.
For the marble fans, we have pillows.
And a new shower curtain. This shower scene makes my old tub look so sad. Note the new mint wire basket too.
New tea pot and bowls. Yes, I'll be getting those. Love.
Lots of fun new tea towels.
Striped tins. And check out the pot hanger. I'll be getting to that in a just a sec.
New copper pots and storage boxes.
New collage art and those wood frames are so cool. What I personally find the most exciting though are the wood tops for the wire baskets. So you can turn them into tables or stack them. Yep, getting some.
Hexagon mirror shelf. Perfect for entry way to keep your keys and check you don't have food in your teeth.
Really cool clocks. I used to have lots of clocks, but I don't know where they all went. Very odd. I bring that up only because now I won't feel guilty getting one of these, because I actually sort of need a new clock.
Circular dorm shelf. Very nice.
Okay, seriously, so how awesome is that leather hanger thing? New rose colorway of the marble wallpaper too.
Wire basket toppers. Yep, still good.
Love this simple grid wallpaper and new candle holders. One can never have too many candle holder options. Fact.
Okay, that clothing rack is still killing me. I love it. I think I might use it to hang some fabric in front of my ugly heater when it isn't in use.
Last, but not least, pretty diamond boxes. If you're my friend, you'll probably be getting one of these as a present in the near future. Another fact for today.
We'll work on updating out site with shipping times/etc. soon, so check back!
The Super Moon has come and gone, but luckily I did a little round up of Moon decor, so you can have super pretty moon stuff all year long... For example, some Full Moon and Half Moon cylinder cushions. Yes, I have one. Yes, I love it.
Moon Dominos? Yes, please.
Crescent Moon Bottle Opener. Why not?
Half Moon Basket. Everything (that's messy at least) looks better in basket!
Waning Moon Cushion. Everyone needs a little Fornasetti, right?
Moon Tea Towel. I use mine all the time!
Crescents Wallpaper has the different moon phases - just beautiful!
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!
