0 Etsy Find | Flatland Drygoods

Two of our favorite makers across the pond, surface pattern designer, Lucie Summers and jewelry designer Emma Mitchell of Silver Pebble have a sweet new collaboration out right now called Flatland Drygoods on Etsy.

Emma tells us, "Together we created a small batch of handprinted and signed nature journals/sketchbooks. The cover design is Lu’s Signs of Spring and each journal has a bookmark handprinted using a tiny screen made from a wren I drew. Each sketchbook has a glassine envelope in the inside cover for collecting feathers and small nature finds and the sturdy manila washer envelope (surely the most marvellous stationery product ever invented) protects the journal in your bag whilst you’re out on walks or whilst it sits in your bookcase."

We love them! Let's take a look!

1 Hotel Style | Byron Beach Abodes

With Air Canada now flying Vancouver to Brisbane this June, visiting Australia's beautiful Byron Beach just came a little easier.  We stumbled upon Byron Beach Abodes recently on Instagram and knew we had to include it in our hotel style series.

A family run business, Byron Beach Abodes specializes in boutique-style accommodations.  Featuring The Cottage, The Chapel and the House which each have their own unique style and are only a five minute walk to Byron's best beaches.  

Let's take a look!   Above, we love the art deco-style chairs in The Cottage, which has been tastefully restored retaining many of the original timbers of the building.  The space features three bedrooms and two baths with beautiful french doors opening onto a large undercover deck overlooking the plunge pool and spa. Lots of white on white with cream and tropical fabric accents.

The Chapel is a nice little spot for a romantic getaway.  We love the recycled timber beams and stylish mix of eclectic furniture and fittings. Living room with it's high ceilings and steel staircase has the feel of a New York loft.

The villas are a nice place to hang after a day at the beach featuring a nice pool and entertaining area.

3 Go Big Or Go Home

We're thrilled to have Victoria of  SF Girl By Bay guest blogging for us today.  Victoria has an amazing eye that we've admired for years and love idea of going big in the art department.

Hi Poppytalk readers, it's Victoria from SF Girl By Bay dropping in today to share some artful ideas for decorating. Have you been noticing the trend lately of decorating with one minimal, but very large piece of artwork? I love the bold statement that a large photograph makes -- drawing your eye into a room and creating a stunning and dramatic backdrop. I love this dining room designed by Black Lacquer Interiors and went on the hunt for a few examples of large format art you can shop online for. You can also print your own Instagrams and other digital images super big with online companies like Framebridge, Artifact Uprising and Parabo Press which can be a super affordable way to add very personal and unique artwork to your space. Online art galleries like 20x200, Mammoth Collections and Tappan Collective are also great resources for getting the big print.

Thank you Victoria! Visit SF Girl By Bay online at:
