Darling Clementine is a small Norwegian design agency that also offers an edited collection of products under the banner: “Darling Clementine Paper Empire” (love that moxie!). I am totally charmed by their scandinavian aesthetic, and ability to create work that is clearly modern yet gives a warm nod to tradition. They also write a nice blog that you can visit by clicking HERE.

Founded in 2008 by designer Rachel Castle, the Aussie homewares brand Castle has become a haven for lovers of all things sunny. Cotton bedlinens are made and handprinted in Australia; artworks all sewn, screened and painted by the designer herself. Brilliantly colorful, irreverent and playfully modern.
CASTLE loves having a bit of fun. We love color and whimsy. We love making accessible art and beautiful bedlinens. We love spots and fluro and grey and yellow and love hearts and flowers and paint and felt and everything that POPS around in our studio. If its fun, we love it.
Mosaic House is a New York based tile company specializing in a variety of Moroccan tiles; hand-painted, cement, mosaic, chiseled and wood. As the newest generation in a centuries old family of tile makers, they draw upon the traditional craft expertise of Morocco, while embracing a modern taste for texture and design. If you poke around on the site a bit, you’ll find videos showing how each tile is made, like THIS. Amazing.
Brisbane, Australia’s Rose Jensen Holm is the artist behind Yesvincent, an extraordinary collection of hand woven wall hangings; each is a one-of-a-kind piece of luscious color and pattern.
Coming from a family of potters and weavers has enabled me to remain connected with established family traditions, while simultaneously being influenced by the broad scope of contemporary design. I often use the technique of tapestry weaving to depict a strong connection to the natural environment: the colours, forms and textures are a constant inspiration.

Food has always played an important role in my family growing up. I’d say my love for food started with my granny’s delicious recipes. Gastronomy is something that I really love, it excites and inspires me. I tend to make my artworks simple, colorful, accessible and witty, wanting to reflect feeling of good food & living. I’m inspired by everyday moments and small things, simplicity and nature. Passionate people, cookbooks, dance, music, nostalgia, sentimental things…and gorgeous Italian food.
