Nathalie Lété’s Busy Paintings Make Great Illustrated Products

Nathalie Lété

See that spot­ted dog in the paint­ing above? I love ‘em. And hon­estly, it’s the first thing I noticed when look­ing at Nathalie Lété’s work… like I have some sort of 6th sense for that type of thing. Her paint­ings are full of quirky objects  set against pat­terned back­grounds. They are busy, but so much fun to look at!

In addi­tion to paint­ings, Nathalie’s illus­tra­tions adorn many, many prod­ucts. I’ve included her scarves here, and she’s cre­ated images that are on toys, tote bags, key chains, and ceramics.

Lately & Liked

Shops I’ve Seen Lately & Liked


For this week’s Lately and Liked, I thought I’d high­light a few shops. They all sell home goods, sta­tion­ary, and other things that brighten our lives. Noth­ing essen­tial, I’d say, but cer­tainly  necessary.



Neëst com­bines inspi­ra­tion in Japan­ese design and was founded upon a strong Scan­di­na­vian influ­ence. Their store has a lot of sim­ple, well-designed items that use nat­ural mate­ri­als (you see a lot of wood). They have some great pieces for your kitchen. Check out their blog, too!

KOROMIKO is founded by Tracey George, a New Zealan­der now liv­ing in Dal­las, Texas.  They started with the idea to sup­port and pro­mote inde­pen­dent design­ers that pro­duce hand­made craft and design prod­ucts. They are into the idea of slow shop­ping, mak­ing thought­ful pur­chases with min­i­mal con­sump­tion. Each year they donate at least 1% of sales to an orga­ni­za­tion that sup­ports arts in the community.

Fine Lit­tle Day


Truth be told, I’ve admired Fine Lit­tle Day (and the blog!) for years. I’m a lover illus­trated prod­ucts, and they have plenty. They have a plethora of inter­est­ing and var­ied prod­ucts like wall­pa­per. Fine Lit­tle Day prides them­selves on being a hap­pily incon­sis­tent and sprawl­ing company.
