Giveaway :: Monorail Studio

Tuesday, July 16, 2013


{shop :: Facebook :: Twitter}

Do you ever find yourself browsing a shop you love and you realized that you have bookmarked every item you come across? (I call it “mental bookmarking” when I’m in the physical store.) I love when this happens because it means I always have somewhere to go when I need a little retail therapy. This is one of the easiest ways to bring the sunshine in, by the way. Spend a little time browsing those brands and shops that bring you joy and that inspire you to surround yourself with beauty.

Monorail Studio is one of those shops for me, friends. Sandrine Molnar and Daniella Valerio are the artists/designers behind the paper goods and apparel print studio and their creations are the type I wish I could make but know that I can’t. This Owl Totem absolutely belongs on my wall. (I have a thing for owls. And good design.) And this Great Waves tshirt? Perfection. I am so excited to spread a little sunshine in your direction with Monorail Studio. You’re welcome.

Monorail Studio is giving away One Tri-Lemon Unisex Anchor Tank Top (Winner chooses size, available in xs, s, m, l, xl) and One Large Pirate Rhyme Screenprinted Poster (Winner chooses color) to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Tuesday, July 23rd. Comments now closed….good luck!
Please visit Monorail Studio and tell us: Do you have any collections? If not, what kind of things are you drawn to when looking to decorate your home?
Start checking the winner’s box on Monday, July 29th, to see if you’ve won!

    I collect artwork. Its mostly street art and none of it is very expensive but all of it is something I chose for a reason and connects me with a certain feeling/time/place. It also provides great visual interest to my home.

    I collect art and artifacts that remind me of my time spent living in Spain. I have framed etchings, needlepoint pictures of flamenco dancers (I dance flamenco too), hand-painted fans, and sand & seashells from the Canary Islands. I just recently acquired a flamenco dancer doll that I’m very excited about!

    I collect lots of things but what defines my space are the books and “art”ifacts. I call them “art”ifacts because these are things which I find aesthetically pleasing but also meaningful in some way, this may mean a small figurine of a bird that belonged to my grandmother or a handmade bowl I found at a yardsale. I am guided by inspiration from the natural world, from artists and craftsmen, and by my own whimsy. Collections come and go, they change as I grow.

    I collect milk glass anything! I have mostly vases but a few other really cool pieces too. I like it because it really pops against color and the vases look so dramatic all grouped together.

    I collect masks from all over the world and hang them on the walls in my bedroom. Most are from Africa and South America but I also have a few from Mexico and Hawaii. They are each so beautiful and unique and soothing to see hanging on my walls.

    I collect vintage cameras, but my favorite collection is inside one of them. I have a small box that is designed to look like a camera. I can pop open the back and store fun things in it. I got the box when I about 13, and each time I have a moment I want to remember I place a memento in that little camera. Ticket stubs, a charm from my sisters wedding bouquet that I pinned to my own 5 years later, a fortune cookie fortune, photo book strips, etc. It’s my own personal memento collection and I smile every time I add something new.

    I have started collecting vintage brass animals. Other than that, I am drawn to simple designs and beachy decor.

    I don’t have a set collection – but I do love little items…in any form. I love to add them as nick nacks to shelves or tables.

    For the past 15 years (since I was a young teenager) I have collected antique keys. I love all things rusty and worn and a key is great because they travel well. I bring at least one home from every vacation. The thing that really draws me in about keys though is all of the stories that match them. Maybe someone somewhere has an old trunk and I have the key to it. Or the boy that lost his roller skate key and the key to someones grandmothers roll top desk…I just stare at them and think of their “lives” and the treasures that they opened.

    I actually have a collection of heads that I’ve accumulated from my travels. This was an accidental collection – I didn’t realize I had it until I started displaying the artwork that I’ve collected. I have a little rhino face from Chicago, a chicken from Paris, a sun mask from Mexico and a face made from whale’s teeth from Alaska. Random, I know, but I think an accidental collection is better than something forced. And they make such a statement displayed together!

    Over the years I have accumulated two random, but lovely things: currency and rose petals – something old and something new.

    From my travels I bring home coins and paper bills from the country at hand to display on my wall of maps: easy to carry, amazing to compare.

    And the second: rose petals. My grandmother presented me with a ceramic jar containing a dried petal from a bouquet from my grandmother’s wedding, my mother’s wedding, my birth, and enough room to continue to add my own petals from my own life moments: prom, dates, performances, and eventually my own wedding.

    I collect snowmen and ornaments from places that I visit – some are kept out all year as they are not just Winter/Christmas related.

    Okay- this is going to sound kind of ridiculous- but i unintentionally collect candy. Buying pretty candy and seeing it in my house make me really happy. Turns out it makes me so happy to look at it, that i never actually end up eating much of it. Just feels like a novelty!

    I moved recently and when you are forced to pack and unpack your stuff you realize what you tend to have multiples of. I’ve discovered that I have a bit of an obsession with throw pillows and blankets. What can I say? I love to be cozy!

    I collect seashells or little trinkets from each destination I visit!

    I love art museums but I don’t love to spend time looking at things I’m not really interested in or drawn to, so I skim through art museums until I find a piece I adore and then I sit and spend some time with it. I collect prints of the pieces I spend time with, and then plaster them all over my house.

    My mother collects buttons made of shell.  My father collects…DVD players…(I think he has 8 or 9 right now…drives my mother crazy…)  My daughter collects the tiniest scraps of trash ever (think sticky popsicle wrappers) which she wants to make crafts out of.  And me?  While, mainly right now I collect dreams.  I’m 31.  I’m trying to sort out my life, trying to be the best (single) mom I can be.  And so I’m slowly filling my life and mind with beautiful things.  The newest thing I’ve just added is mother-daughter harp lessons.  Yes.  My 5 year old and I are taking harp lessons this fall together!!! (Dreamy!)  It’s the best collection I’ve ever had.

    I collected sayings, quotes, and words of wisdom and put them into my home decor through art work. Also, I have been collecting Mickey Mouse since I was born. Other than really old pieces, I limit the Mickey stuff to items that hold meaning so my home doesn’t become over ran with the mouse.
