Poppytalk for Target!

Happy Friday! Just in time for the weekend, we are sharing Target's newest collaboration with Poppytalk!

Jan Halvarson of the Vancouver-based blog Poppytalk, has been creating beautiful and inspiring posts on her lifestyle blog since 2005, and has now created a collection of party d├ęcor, paper products and serving pieces in bold colours and fun patterns with Target. Inspired by "glamping," these items are the perfect addition to any party- from a gathering in your own backyard to a picnic in the park. The collection boasts a new take on mid-century prints and pieces to create a whimsical and playful setting, where ever you decide to use them!  

Take a look at the collection below and get all these items in stores now. We have already started imagining how we will be using these pieces this weekend!

CB2 Fall 2014 Collection

This might be CB2's 2014 fall collection, but we couldn't help but share their newest selection of pieces! With hits of peach, brass, turquoise and black combined with geometric shapes and modern prints, we are already smitten. Our favourite pieces? The brass bed frame, gorgeous light fixtures, and that pixelated floral area rug! We will be dreaming of this collection all summer long until it hits stores in the fall.

Rifle Paper Co. Wallpaper Collection

We here at Alykhan Velji Designs love to use wallpaper in our client's spaces. It has come a long way and can instantly add an element of surprise, pattern and interest to a space.  We've also been fans of Rifle Paper Co. since it started creating beautiful stationary, so we couldn't be more excited about their new wallpaper collection. Time and time again they have created beautiful designs, so it's no surprise they did the same with their newest wallpaper line. We can't wait to use it in our spaces!

She has recently teamed up with Anthropologie and launched her first ever home collection, that exudes all these same qualities.

In keeping with our summer and sunshine theme featured on the blog yesterday, we are excited to talk about designer Kate Thornley-Hall's new collection. We all love to dream about traveling to the beach, putting our feet up and relaxing in the sunshine. And now Kate has created a collection that let's us bring that feel to our own home! 

Inspired by Cayman islands, the line includes contemporary wool and silk hand-woven carpets made in Nepal as well as flat-weave rugs, throw pillows, fabrics and decorative wallpapers, to be followed soon by the introduction of lifestyle products. With colours influenced by what's found above and below the sea, the collection is sure to create a relaxing and beachy atmosphere is whatever space you chose to use it in.
