Inspiration  Cheeky Monkey Home Does Turquoise & Greige

This week I am pulling together the things that I love the most from my favorite designers, and pairing them with Cheeky Monkey Home pillows. Turquoise is fresh and vibrant, and I think it is especially beautiful set off by a warm beige-grey (“greige”).  As you can see,  a strong color identity can be all you need to unify a huge range of style and texture in your decor.



I love Caitlin Wilson’s textiles and home decor.  She is amazingly talented, successful and prolific (and so young!).  Her newest collection of rugs seem inspired by her international travel, and I love how they pair with so many Cheeky Monkey designs.  I have also been eyeing everything in the new Serena & Lily catalogue, and especially this gorgeous Palmetto wallpaper!  It feels rich, Indian, and very handmade to me.  


CMH Studio  New Mexican Garland Pillows for GREAT.LY

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.
