If you are searching for a website with the most beautiful fabrics ever, look no further than Purlsoho.com. They have a million different fabrics and accessories and books, etc-all of them magnificent. By far my favorite are the new Tana Lawn prints by Liberty of London. They have a great selection of these fabrics that are incredibly difficult to find in the USA. The website is worth a peek just for inspiration!

As summer nears, and we find ourselves outside more and more, it's nice to have some super fun non breakable plates for all of those outside parties. We found these at working class studio, which is part of the Savannah college of art and design, where the artists get to have their designs actually produced and sold to the masses. Some people have just been using them as decoration they are so pretty! Available now at bon bon~

Emily and I love ceramics, in fact we are ceramics crazy. I don't know what it is about us, but we love a good vessel. bon bon, of course, carries the incredible ceramic designs of Andrea Yates and Shirley Kramer (of whom both are very well represented in our homes), but another ceramicist we love--Jonathan Adler. We first went to a Jonathan Adler store in San Francisco, and then fell into his website, and of course watch him every week as the incredibly witty judge on Top Design. Anyway look at his website--his ceramics are amazing, he does incredibly beautiful furniture-oh and his pillows are awesome. www.jonathanadler.com For the incredible Shirley Kramer and Andrea Yates check out our website www.bonbonatelier.com or stop in the store!

Ibride's products are created by 3 members of the same French family. The inspiration for each item comes from both the very close environment and travels around the world. The word 'ibride' itself is a play on words in French meaning 'hybrid', and many of the pieces combine several forms and several functions. The trays are not only sturdy and beautiful while in use but can also become elegant wall décor statements. Each tray is constructed to last using a century old technique. Created of high pressure laminate each of Ibride's items are thoroughly functional and lifestyle enhancing at the same time. And now they are at bon bon!
