Here is a selection of Westwing products I’d love to get my hands on and add to my own interior…
|In love with the vibrant summery colors of these hammam foutas By Johanne®. These would look fabulous at the beach, in a bathroom or to show off at the next pool party!|
|Oh, what a cool idea! I already mentioned that I really like wallpaper as statement pieces on one unique wall. Add some pop in your entryway with this awesomely unique "paint strips" wallpaper from Oh My Wall®.|
|How many pillows can a sofa or daybed hold to be welcoming and cosy? If you ask me, the more, the better. I am having a serious crush for these Colorique® "ethnic" chic inspired pillows.|

In today's society the use of organic materials is becoming not just a trend but also a necessity for people with extreme allergies. Many products have “off gassing” that contributes to air quality in the home. Designers are working with organically made products to create a more healthy environment.
Organic bedding made with organic cotton
Organic rugs and carpets made of wool, jute, bamboo, cotton, and hemp.
Flooring made of bamboo and reclaimed wood.
Low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) paints
These are just a few materials you can begin to change when designing or redesigning your home.

|Imitate the sunlight rays with the use of a lighter paint color|
|Why stop at the window or the ceiling, keep going!|
|Invent new lines and shapes, be audacious!|
|Build a focal point and delimitate two spaces|
Not a passage anymore, a "Grand" passage now...

We were looking for a way to do some inexpensive art for kids and teens rooms when we stage vacant homes. These were a breeze to make.

Hans Blomquist was kind enough to share with us some pictures of The Natural Home, due for release on April 1, 2012 and available through most book retailers.
As Hans Blomquist puts it himself, "the book celebrates a home where style, through furniture and materials used, is very natural, celebrating vintage objects with patina that aged with time and use [...] The homes shown are furnished in a very spontaneous way... unplanned or un-staged, where the style and setting have evolved with time, where furniture and objects found their place, almost by accident. [...]".
The Natural home is an ode to the "perfect-imperfect" look many of us try to achieve in our home, a look that instantly gives character to a space and clearly contrasts from a "showroom" or catalog home. Can't wait to add this one to my personal home decor book collection... Monsieur Blomquist, merci!
