AdelineKlamPlanning to do more paper projects this year starting with these stars made from origami papers. We found these designs on French blog, Adeline Klam. They’re great as holiday ornaments but can also be used year round as gift package trims. With the proper paper choices the stars can be simple and elegant as shown above or fun and colorful.

Zoe Attwell

ZoeAttwellAdmiring the simple shapes, colors and textures on these designs created by London-based surface pattern designer, Zoe Attwell. Her stylized patterns are mostly hand drawn with a few vector elements. The patterns are made into stationery, pillows and tea towels, some of which can be purchased here on Not on the High Street. She writes this about inspiration:

“I’m drawn to design from the 50s, Lucienne Day, Miró, Scandinavian design, and to the colourful and abstract. My design style is mostly hand-drawn, abstract and stylised. My patterns are happy and cheerful and are designed to bring fun and colour to your home.”

Marti Mugs

MartiMugsHope you don’t mind this Monday morning endorsement but our friend just opened up her Etsy shop, Marti Mugs. She creates these custom made captioned mugs that are dishwasher and microwave safe. They are hand-scripted ceramic mugs so no two will ever be alike and you can contact her if you want a personalized message inscribed. We love them a lot and they’re great for gifting.
