March desktop calendar download

I don’t know about you, but I can’t start a new month without Monica’s desktop calendar. They’re a great way to track the year! March’s theme is a play with pattern on pattern. Enjoy!  Read on →

Limited edition home goods with Meta Coleman

Meta Coleman for The House That Lars Built

You guys! We’ve teamed up with interior designer and stylist, Meta Coleman, on an exclusive limited edition line of beautifully curated home goods new to the shop starting now and while supplies last.

Meta is one of my dearest friends (and Jasper’s self-appointed godmother ;)–ha!) and it’s a dream to team up because she’s absolutely passionate about anything related to the home and how to personalize it to your tastes, background, and current obsessions. She is always one to push the boundaries and help you to look at how YOU see your own home and how you can make it different than any one else’s. Read on →

March book club: A Big Important Art Book

Hi readers! March brings us to the start of spring (hooray!), but also a certain day we’d love to mention: International Women’s Day, which is March 8th. To celebrate the women around this world, we chose a book that does just that—A Big Important Art Book (Now With Women!) by Danielle Krysa. Creator of The Jealous Curator blog, Krysa is an author extraordinaire and talented artist herself. In this book, she shares the profiles of more than 45 female artists from around the world, giving us fabulous ideas on how WE can become artists as well! Depending on how long you’ve been reading with Lars Book Club, you might know that Danielle Krysa is a much-loved author here. We’ve read Your Inner Critic Is a Big Jerk a couple years ago, and we’re happy to feature another of her books this month! Follow along @larsbookclub and stay tuned for artwork later this month. Enjoy!

Head over to @LarsBookClub to enter to win a copy of the book in our giveaway!

Featured Illustrator: Patti Blau

I’m pleased to introduce you to our featured illustrator of the month, Patti Blau. Patti designed the poster and bookmark for our Book Club this month. I was first attracted to her work because of the beautiful fashion portraits she creates. I knew she’d be the perfect person to tap into the vibe of Umbrellas of Cherbourg. She has an interesting story to tell and I loved reading more about her (especially her closeness with Jean Michel Basquiat!).

Lars for Wildbird

I’m pleased to share our new collaboration with sling favorite, Lars for Wildbird! The collection launches TONIGHT at 7pm MST. They have a tendency to sell out fast so I’d suggest setting your timers!

Jasper spent the first few months of his napping on us in a sling ONLY. It was the hugest lifesaver. Now that Jasper is super mobile (waaa!) and doesn’t like to be contained too much (or at all) we use it when traveling (remember our trip to Mexico?) and when we need to get stuff done around the house and he’s in the mood for a cuddle.
