Kate Spade Saturday aka Kate Spade’s younger, rebellious little hipster sister, is starting to come into her own.
The brand’s slightly edgier designs have now teamed up with Pottery Barn’s little sister aka West Elm to create a series of print and decor pieces. The collection ranges from dreamy watercolor florals to subtle start printed sheets and funky wall art. I love, love the floral print – it reminds me of a fun, impressionist painting. What do you think of the collection?

Does your design style include psychedelic poured enamels and postmodern abstractions?
Well then you should definitely check out artist Leah Turner’s fabulous collaboration with West Elm. While I may have scratched my head and though, “Hmm probably not” if I posed the question above to myself, I really like this collection. It goes to show that art prints can be beautiful to many if they are done in the right pattern, colors, and scale.
Of course the bonus with this collaboration is that you get an artist’s work for a savvy price (that and it’s functional – just try fluffing up one of your existing artworks!)

One of my decor musts remains a beautiful settee.
I first proclaimed my love for settees here but really got inspired all over again when I saw this settee in the home of Gerard Tremolet. The settee is actually the most understated piece of decor in the room. Yet it remains undeniably elegant. Can you imagine lounging in this corner as you serve tea and finger foods to a few guests (hummus and pepper filled crackers come to mind!)?
