design for the dog-lovers

I’m a fan of dogs – so much so that I have been known to {literally} drop everything because of a frenchie (or boxer, or rottweiler, or corgi) sighting. It is no secret that I also love canine-inspired items in household design. There are a lot of really fun doggie-themed items available right now – and many make great gifts. Here are some of my faves. Enjoy!

label love :: chandon redesign

chandon-redesign

Anyone who knows me knows how I feel about champagne. It is my beverage of choice (and I do not believe you need a special occasion to enjoy a glass or two of bubbly). I blame my sister-in-law.

So it’s no surprise that I would be perusing the sparkling wine section of our local grocery store. While browsing, something immediately caught my eye – Chandon has a new label! The new placement of the “shooting star” works well and yet keeps the brand very recognizable. The sans serif font chosen feels reminiscent of 20s-30s advertising, and yet is modern and clean at the same time. I’m also a fan of the new shade of gold used.

This is a redesign that I believe will serve the brand well. Well done! Pass the bubbly!

our bare walls are taunting me

letthesunshinein

Our bare walls are on my brain this week (as is evidenced by the two previous posts) – I’m itching to buy, frame, and hang new artwork. And I’m anxious to repaint the living room (currently green, but I think we’re going to paint it the same shade of gray as the studio – just waiting for a free weekend to tackle it).

This screen printed artwork by Slide Sideways is another favorite – perfectly appropriate for our Pacific Northwest household.

dear colleen print

champagne

I discovered the dear colleen etsy shop via design*sponge yesterday and immediately fell in love with this print. Inspired by a Tom Waits quote (I know Jonathan will appreciate that) and featuring my favorite beverage (mmm…bubbly), this could be a perfect addition to our wall.

Also, since I’ve been in real pain for the past week (I’m recovering from oral surgery), I can tell you that this print echos my real feelings on the matter.

letterpress office print

katiekirkofficeprint

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this letterpress office print by Katie Kirk of Eight Hour Day (also the illustrator of Eli, Noremember that cutie?). Buy it here.

This is a perfect addition to our home studio, which happens to be the same shade of yellow as is seen in the print…

can I make you a drink?

barcards1

An essential part of any well-appointed bar is a bar book – but I’d be tempted to ditch the whole book idea in favor of a stylish option like these classic cocktail bar cards by etsy seller neilhubert. Screen printed and packaged neatly in newsprint, these would be a fun gift to any cocktail enthusiast (or to yourself!) I’m tempted to order two sets – one to frame, and one to use.

A friend posted the website of illustrator Gemma Correll on facebook and we were immediately smitten! I love these doggie greeting cards (below) – did anyone else notice how multicultural these dogs are? Love! Cards (and more goodies) available in her shop.
