imaginenations globes

by Grace Bonney

When I was going through the D*S book edits last week, I realized how many globes are in the homes we feature. I knew they were popular again, but it didn’t really hit me until I saw them all together just how pervasive the trend has become. So when I saw these pretty globes from Wendy at ImagineNations, I thought they’d make a perfect start to the day. Wendy updates vintage globes by making new designs on top of them with recycled materials. I’m so smitten with the Bon Voyage design above (some lucky duck already snagged that one, argh!) but there are several to choose from — and more on the way — over at Wendy’s site.

Also, Wendy posted this fun video of how globes are made on her blog. If you’ve ever wondered, now you can watch them in action! So cool. xo, grace
