Decorating Your Sneakers with Tattly

A few days ago I shared on my Instagram how my daughter felt inspired to decorate her white sneakers with Tattly. I can’t remember getting this many DMs with excitement and thumbs up. It’s super simple: Grab a hold of some fun small-ish Tattly and apply them, just like you would on your skin, but on your shoe. Make sure to cover the designs with a clear sealant or clear nail polish. Superfun! Boring sneakers no more!

There are many more Tattly DIY ideas on our blog.

Tattly launched Embroidery Tattoos by Tessa Perlow yesterday. These are the coolest! I don’t know what to do with my excitement over these! Gah!

In case you’re not familiar with Tattly: It’s a high-end temporary tattoo company I started 8 years ago. The designs last 2-5 days and are printed with vegetable based ink, here in the USA. We license art from professional artists and they get a generous cut of every single sale.

Entryway Mosaic Floor

Last week I was invited to a friend’s house and this is the mosaic that greeted me at the entryway. What a stunning statement right at the entrance of a home! The masterpiece is by Sarah Donato. I learned from the owner Jules that they were inspired by Nick Misani’s work.

Now I am dreaming of one day renovating a home and being able to hire Sarah to make me a custom mosaic. One day! One day!
