Every year on Christmas we always put up the usual fake christmas trees but this year calls for a real fir tree planted in a pot. I love to bring nature in my house this year. And the good thing is that it can become a great plant decoration for your home afterwards!

I recently stumbled upon a very talented textile designer and illustrator based in Brooklyn, Leah Reena Goren. Leah graduated in 2012 from Parsons School of Design with a BFA in Illustration. Her work is inspired by her sunny California roots, with lots of bright floral patterns, girls and niche culture illustrations. The colorful and bright textile prints she designs featuring lot of flowers, plants, and girls make life seem more beautiful. I am sure she has a great more deal of creativeness to offer us and I am delighted to share some insight into her work:Amondst her creations are clothing, totes, scarves, dolls and more accessories. One of the most popular designs she’s done so far is the black cat dress I love it! You willa lso find her work in the “Made in Kind” line she did for Anthropologie..
