Nancy Nikko Design

I recently came across an amazing paper goods shop on Etsy and was smitten with everything they make.  Nancy Nikko Design specializes in personalized stationery, labels and bookplates, all with beautifully illustrated images, graphics and typography.  I am especially drawn to the chinoiserie designs and home decor illustrations and love her collection of business cards.

There are over 800 items in Nancy’s shop, perfect for your personal stationery suite or for gift giving. You’ll also find a collection of party decor, kids stationery and art prints and most of the custom wine labels, personalized stationery and invitations can accommodate color changes, and additional text upon request.

FYI– Nancy will have her Christmas and holiday designs available in late September.

Picking my favorites items was a hard task but I did manage to round-up a few of them for you below.  To view the entire Nancy Nikko Design shop, head here.

I’ve been quite obsessed with all things Chinoiserie of late in part because it’s a design style that is super popular right now and also because I just love the eclectic feel the style lends itself too.

Chinoiserie also speaks to my love of color, vintage and bold pattern work.  The Jamie Meares image above just says fun to me and really represent a collected home filled with unique treasures.

The Ralph Lauren image below is another take on Chinoiserie with a more subdues color and pattern statement but with just as much personality and visual interest.

Some of my favorite Chinoiserie styled decorative elements include blue and white pottery, bamboo styled furniture, mirror and lighting and also Asian motif pillows.

Recently I went on the hunt for some Chinoiserie pillows for our bedroom.  I started my search on Etsy and was thrilled to see that there are lots of pillows available on the site.

One of the things I like about shopping on Etsy is that you can get handcrafted items in designer fabrics for a great price.  I also like that shopping Etsy is a way to support independent artist and small businesses, many of which are run out of the home.

Here’s just a sampling of the pillows I found…

Good Morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend.  

I was a busy beaver but did manage a little time outdoors enjoying the weather.  One of the big task on my to-do list was adding new items to the ConfettiStyle Etsy Shop.  I added over 50 new vintage decor and jewelry items and still have more to add, including some vintage holiday pieces.

If you’ve never been to my Etsy shop and are wondering what types of items I sell, let me tell you about the shop.  I opened my Etsy shop a few years ago and really focused on selling pieces that I loved and would decorate my own home with.  I am an avid flea market shopper and the shop was a great way for me to make some of what I find available to you.  There are several different categories of items in the shop but you’ll find milk glass and ironstone pieces, brass decor and lots of unique vintage items. Back in 2012 I started making vintage jewelry and add my handcrafted jewelry to the shop.  2012 was also the year when my jewelry was selected as an editors’ pick by Country Living Magazine and was featured in the Dec/Jan 2012 issue.

Over the years I’ve added additional handcrafted pieces including designer clipboards which have been very popular.  I have a new collection of clipboards that will be available in the shop soon.

So all in all, my Etsy shop is an extension of my passion for vintage decor, jewelry and my love of handcrafting!  Here’s a sneak peek at some of the items you’ll find in the shop…

And in case you missed it, I’ve decided to expand my shop presence and begin selling vintage finds on Instagram in a new shop called The Vintage Box.  This has been something I’ve thought about for almost a year and I’m excited to launch the shop later this month.

The Instagram shop will have a more focused product offering and I’ll also be selling vintage jewelry as well.  I’m still nailing down the details of the sales so follow along here to be the first to know when the shop opens.

You never know what treasures are in the box!

I’m a sucker for office supplies  and love a chic office space like this one that belongs to Danielle of Shop Dandy. And as soon as the school supplies begin hitting the store shelves for back to school, I’ll be first in line.

Office Space

If you love cool office supplies like I do and can’t wait until back to school season, here are a few pieces I selected from Etsy for my Best of Etsy feature.


I’ll take a pencil any day over a pen and have stocked up on stylish pencils like these from ACD Shop.  They are sure to brighten up your desk and your day!

Why not organize the clutter on your desk in style.  This gold foil acrylic tray from InkSpot Workshop is the perfect catch-all tray for office supplies, business cards and such.

Ever since Nate came out with gold paperclips I’ve been obsessed.  They do the same thing as silver paperclips but they’re just so much more chic. Available from InkKit.

Gold Paper Clips

Add a little shimmer to your desk with the gold glitter tape dispenser from Alice and Marie.  And if one glitter piece on your desk isn’t enough, they’ve got lots more piece to choose from.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments on our spring bedroom refresh.

Today I wanted to share a little more about the beautiful prints I used in the bedroom.  I knew I wanted to place a grouping of images on the wall next to the window and closet to my side of the bed.  You see that wall when you enter the room so I wanted to make an impact.  I also knew that whatever I hung I that wall would be hung in gold frames.

Since one of the goals for the refresh was to add more accents of gold into the space, frames were an obvious and easy solution.

ConfettiStyle Spring Bedroom Refresh12

All four of the prints I used are from an awesome Etsy shop called MyLoveNotedesigns.  The shop is run by Christina who personally designs all of the printable art, many which contain inspirational words and positive messages.  Christina opened her Etsy shop in 2014 after starting a family and leaving an accounting career and the corporate world behind.  Christina said she started designing her prints as a way to inspire and remind herself of what is meaningful in life and to personally connect with others.

ConfettiStyle Spring Bedroom Refresh9

The collection of prints I choose to use were perfect for a bedroom space and also allowed me to add a touch of personalization into the room.  The LOVE print is one of my favorite designs and gold foil is so pretty once printed.  The HEART of flowers couldn’t have been more perfect for our room with a black background and pink flowers.  I also choose a monogram print and love how Christina has added flowers to give the design a special touch.  The last design in the group reads All Of Me Loves All Of You and I love both the message and the delicate details of the design.

ConfettiStyle Spring Bedroom Refresh2

Once printed, I placed each image in a Ikea frame which I spray painted gold using Rustoleum Bright Coat Spray Paint (which happens to be my favorite gold spray paint)

ConfettiStyle Spring Bedroom Refresh22

I’ve purchased several printable images from Etsy in the past and I must say that the collection of designs that MyLoveNotedesigns offers is one of the best.  There are over 450 designs to choose from including gold foil, nursery designs, calendars, meal planners, expense trackers and weekly planners and most of the designs are $5.00 or less.  And, Christina also offers custom orders if you have a specific design in mind.

Because there are so many great prints, picking your favorites will be tough but you can use my list of top 10 to help you shop…


Feather and Floral / Be Our Guest (so awesome for a guest bedroom or bath)


Home Sweet Home (great housewarming gift) / You Got This (fun print for an office)


Ampersand Floral (add this to a gallery wall arrangement) / Fox Fun (fun for a kids room)


Watercolor Feather (love this) / Family Initial (great wedding gift)


Gold foil HEART/  Love Arrow (love the chalkboard feel of this print)

MyLoveNotedesigns can be used in any room of your home and because the prints are so affordable, you can create a gallery wall arrangement with minimal investment.

I usually wait until October or November to share my favorite calendars for the new year but this year it couldn’t wait.  I wanted to make sure you’ve all seen what I am now claiming as my new favorite-all-time-planner!

Even though I’ve read about this planner on other blogs and I know lots of fellow designers and bloggers are already using it, it wasn’t until I took a serious look at it for myself that I fell in love with it.
