Share the #DesignLove with us
Welcome to Design Love Wednesday! From interior designers to DIY blogs, visual artists and more, the REstyleSOURCE team has a growing #DesignLove list that we just couldn’t keep to ourselves anymore. We’re going to share a new group of creatives with you every Wednesday on Instagram, so don’t forget to follow us over there @restylesource, if you don’t already. Now, on to the design love!
San Francisco artist Aleksandra Zee is, as her Instagram profile says, ‘a woodworker and a one woman show.’ In these sundrenched sepia-toned shots from her studio and daily life, she gives followers glimpses of her latest work. We love her 3D, geometric-inspired wood creations for their bohemian vibe and almost hypnotic patterns. Definitely a maker to watch!
First, husband and wife team Eva & Kirk Jorgensen traveled the world, then they settled down to ‘live simply, yet beautifully’ in the rugged Utah mountains. Luckily, they also founded Sycamore Street Press, and you can follow along with the photos of their beautiful cards, prints, gift wrap and stamps (not to mention some stunning lifestyle and landscape shots) on their lovely Instagram feed. Sycamore Street Press makes ‘simple, beautiful things…with quality, sustainable materials’, and we at REstyleSOURCE say cheers to that!
Wallpaper has come a long way–from old-fashioned and luxurious to somewhat low-rent and tacky and all the way back again. These days, impeccably designed wallpapers are the height of chic once again, and no one is doing it better than Hygge & West. Their charming patterned papers weave a kind of magical spell over a room (‘hygge’ is a Danish word that loosely translates as ‘cozy’), are 100% American-made and designed by some of the most exciting talent around –Rifle Paper Co., Joy Cho (aka Oh Joy!) and Justina Blakeney are just a few from their roster of talented names. Hygge & West’s Instagram feed is every bit as colorful and inspiring as you would expect, make sure to check it out!
There’s something almost intimate about really good quality handmade ceramics, and Anna Eaves’s Instagram shows that off to great effect. The subtle marks and perfectly imperfect qualities left by the artist’s hand are showcased in each closeup shot of her stunningly simple ceramic cups, bowls and plates. In fact, the artist’s hand is actually visible in about half of her photos, holding up a cup or sweeping away ceramic shavings. The Arrow and Sage Instagram is lovely, serene, and aside from the fact that it will give you the inexplicable craving to shop (seriously, we could buy her entire stock of handcrafted mugs and still want more), browsing Anna’s pastel-tinted pics is the most peaceful way we can think of to spend a morning.
