I have really been enjoying the work of Dolan Geiman lately. Found thanks to a post by Bloesem, I immediately loved the strong, warm, eclectic feel. Using handmade and eco-friedly techniques, Dolan creates paintings, collages, and box prints on wood. All available for purchase through his website.
Located in Des Moines, Iowa, Domestica has a wonderful selection of home and personal accessories. Their goal is to “promote the quality and value of handmade/cottage industry craftsmanship; planting the seed of great design that’s kind to the environment, kind to the artist and kind to your pocketbook.” To do a little online shopping, or just for inspiration and ideas, check out Domestica online.

Maybe it was the previous World Map post that got me started, but here is another wall mural post. Since 2002 Blik has been collaborating with artists and designers to produce some pretty great wall decals. They range in price and in difficulty of installation, but I have found both to be pretty reasonable. I have even seen some of these in a few restaurants, and in a hotel we stayed in recently.
During the design process I constantly come across things to remember for another project. Some time ago I came across these maps from Murals Your Way ,and Pedlars and I set them aside to use in our daughters’ room. Maps are a great feature for a child’s room, because they are usually not expensive, and available in various sizes from 24×36” to full wall size. For a more antique look you might try your local second hand store or antique dealer.
