With Thanksgiving behind us here in the US, I’m excited to begin making Christmas crafts and bringing out my family’s old decorations that have been passed down. This year more than ever I am attracted to simple decorations like the ones shown here. More inspiration on Pinterest – follow me here.

La Distributrice (The Dispenser) occupies the smallest retail space in Montreal. With a staircase above and the width of 2 espresso machines, the space is room for just one barista who will create your espresso drink of choice to go as you exit the very busy Mont Royal Metro Station in The Plateau neighborhood. They serve espresso from Detour Coffee Roasters out of Ontario and sell their beans by the bag as well. The visual identity for this travel-worthy coffee window was designed by Gabriel Lefebvre and Rachel Lecompte and you can view their project page here.



Last year I wrote a post about how much I liked Zooey Deschanel’s character’s bedspread on the set of her (then) new tv show New Girl was and it has been by far the most viewed post on this blog, which leads me to believe that many of you enjoy it as well! The frustrating bit is that no one could figure out where it was from! Realizing that it was probably a custom comforter made on set, I went in search for the fabric, but how easy could that be? I mean, really. There are too many fabrics in the world to ever be able to magically happen upon it in that manner.

Thanks to reader Eva, we now know! First we happened on this article from which then by way of quick Google search led me to this.

And there you have it, friends.
