Hello! Today I am giving you a preview of some of Cheeky Monkey’s new spring and summer collection. I am thrilled to introduce our hand-cut garland designs, inspired by tissue paper fiesta garlands from Mexico. I love the way they look as appliqués!
The colors and designs you see are being offered exclusively through select tastemakers at GREAT.LY–an amazing new online marketplace that connects the work of “makers” like me, with “tastemakers” (design bloggers) who want to bring original, high-quality products to their readers. Over the next few weeks, the GREAT.LY tastemakers will be filling their shops with goods created by makers exclusively for their shops. (more…) →
There is something so totally classic and crisp about the combination of blue and white. I have been collecting images to inspire some new pillow designs, and just love the way they all look together. Stay tuned for some great new Cheeky Monkey Home pillows in blue and white this summer!
I am always watching what will come next from my friend Jen Hill, of J.Hill Design. Jen makes patterned map prints about places she’s never been, as well as a lot she has explored in her travels. She is a genius with color and pattern, and almost everything she makes can be personalized. Nothing is better than e a personalized gift, and she even provides information on economical framing options, so you can get it all done in one stop!
I am a big fan of her famous map prints, featuring neighborhoods, cites and countries around the world. She chooses the patterns and colors carefully to evoke the imagery, history and stories of each special place.
