Monday cheer up: Graphic pillows

Hey everybody~ It’s been a fun weekend starting with a trip to Real Food Daily, a delicious vegan restaurant just up the street from us on La Cienega. The food was so tasty and fulfilling, Friday night really set the tone for the  whole weekend, if you know what I mean! Do try it and let me know what ya think!

I wanted to start every week this month with a punch, so I’ve picked out some of my favorite graphic pillows that have caught my eye. Starting with I LOVE VERA, a 1960’s design icon that has been revived for the public!

This green bolster is on SALE at Anthropologie  (if you can believe it!) I actually bought the shorter version in pink because it worked with our living room and I’m luvin’ it. They’ve even made her amazing watercolors into rug designs and upholstery.

Wouldn’t this rug inspire a swim?

Can you believe that Vera Neumann, whose namesake the VeraCompany celebrates, began it all as a scarf designer?

Lately, green is my favorite color and this Kaleidoscope pillow by Jonathan Adler does not disappoint.

Last-but-not-least this teensy little white Geisha Kukiko by myMimi wishes you a cheerful Monday!

There is a world full of curiosities in store for you this week.

Sophisticated Surfaces

Here are some surface designs to cheer the mundane.

An artist from Britain, Natalie Singh makes graphic prints and develops them into cards for family and friends.


I find this print especially eye-catching and could even picture it as a wallpaper.

Love the background colors and pattern on this one!

A final fave is this curvy retro pattern below.

Leaf swirls

Natalie also has a shop where you can purchase cards and she oozes with original features on design.

Another artist that has caught my eye on several occasions is Jill Bliss with her organic shapes and eco-inspired designs. One of my favorite topics to discuss in an artwork is nature and it’s splendor. Based in Oregon with roots in California, Jill’s work investigates the flora around us here.

These poppies are delicate and  beautiful.


Love the minty fresh card!


Oh, what a mural.

Jill maintains a stunning shop of where you can truly grasp her unique style. I was reminded of Jill’s work on my trip to Kentucky, where I noticed some of her splendid notecards for sale, these cards available here.  At Jill’s shop you can learn more about her inspiration as an artist and look at her portfolio too.

Look forward to catching a glimpse of another artist’s cards tomorrow morning along with Jenna’s desk redo coming soon!
