Rakel Fairfull + Famille Summerbelle + Field Notes

Happy Monday!

I know Monday's can be a bit tough sometimes, but I do hope that your Monday has got off to a good start : )

How was your weekend? We had a lovely weekend that was full of nice family time - brunch at our favourite cafe, a mum and son's trip to Te Papa, and dad and son's trip to the pool (with stunt hydro sliding included!) and a family outing to a Wellington Phoenix football game... all good!

Are you ready for a new alphabetical week? Let's get this 'f' underway...

Rakel Fairfull

As a professional web and graphic design, Rakel Fairfull produces these beautiful works in her spare time - yay for spare time! I find Rakel's prints so soothing, I could stare for hours at the soft colours and dreamy patterns. What a wonderful way to start the week!

Famille Summerbelle

No doubt you would of seen the absolutely gorgeous Paris and London paper cut maps from Famille Summerbelle? - did you know they have recently completed a New York version too? -see first image below.

Pretty much the whole Famille Summerbelle collection is based around paper cuts, everything from Cushions and Wallpaper to Ribbon Tapes and prints ...

"Our designs and accessories are created to achieve a delicate balance in decorating a child’s room: an inspiring and reassuring space for the child which retains the creative, elegant warmth that we try to achieve throughout our homes. A room for everyone."

So good!
