We are not sure the origin of this image, the decorator, or the wall panel manufacturer but it’s too great not to post this morning. Anyone with info please do share!

It’s also a part of our continued efforts to mentally will the beginning of spring, even though it seems to be quite sluggish to show up this year!


Fabric and Wallpapers by Abigail Borg

Daylight savings time change from this weekend has us with spring on the brain.  Are you counting down the days for better weather and sunshine?  We certainly are which is why British illustrator Abigail Borg is the perfect visual indulgence for us today.

For now, we’re going to forget what it looks like outside our windows and focus on this incredibly talented work by Borg.  We’re going to be filling our design library with her amazing fabrics and wallpapers stat!

Why not go all out with these fabrics and papers? Here’s how we’d like to use Borg’s amazing product line in a country house. Would you?!

At Home with Tibi

With the impending arrival of the newest member to the Tilton Fenwick family (Anne’s baby due April!) we’ve had a special interest in baby/child/parent/nursery research which lead us to the discovery of the fantastic site, The Glow.  From their “About” page…

The Glow is a glimpse into the world of inspiring and fashionable moms.  Here you’ll find their styling ideas, go-to gear, multitasking secrets, and enviable decor.  Edited by Violet Gaynor / Photography by Kelly Stuart / Co-founded in January 2011

Today’s great feature is a glimpse inside the word of Tibi owner, Amy Smilovic with her kids in their Greenwich, CT home.   The interiors are a funky take within a very traditional colonial style home.  Check out some crazy wallpapers, which we thoroughly enjoy especially contained within this very quintessential Greenwich style home.  Take a peek!
