I've got a soft spot in my heart for ocean critters. (I study oceanography after all.) Here are some goodies for your home/apartment, inspired by creatures from the deep blue sea:
1 - Spineless by Susan Middleton - a beautiful coffee-table book featuring 250 stunning photographs of marine invertebrates ($35.71).
2 - Fish pillow from Fine Little Day, with pretty screenprinted fishies ($41.00).
3 - Penguin wallpaper from Turner Pocock Wallpaper, with adorable penguin sketches ($105.00 for a 10 m roll). Oooh, or seascape wallpaper from Abigail Edwards, with beautiful, graphic rolling ocean waves ($86.00 for a 10 m roll). Ooo oooh, or octopus wallpaper from Badgers of Bohemia, featuring elegant handpainted octopuses (octopi?) that look beautifully kaleidoscope-y (this one's pricey - $320.00 for a 10 m roll). If only I could wallpaper the walls in my apartment... sigh.
4 - Lobster serving tray by Jessica Howard Ceramics, hand painted and perfect for your next lobster boil ($185.00).
5 - Medusa pendant lamp from Roxy Russell Design, inspired by a concern about plastic pollution in the ocean, ironically handmade from recyclable plastic ($475.00).
