for your consideration

I feel as though Mondays need a bit of inspiration to start off the week. Here are some things that have inspired me lately. 


This British stylist’s home. So quirky and a bit busy, but those bathroom tiles are so dreamy. Handpainted! I love it. 


This brilliant article in T Magazine. The history of these buildings is so interesting and the ruinous grandeur that is being slowly restored is just beautiful. Personally, this is just the phase of restoration I would want to stop at. Perfect! 

I am kind of bored of many fashion brands, but I really liked Ulla Johnson’s recent show. I loved her “meditation on craft” as she called it. Also her use of past fabric scraps in the quilted pieces is a great idea and what all fashion companies should be doing. 

The beautiful color on Scribble & Daub’s booth at a Brides fair in London seems like the perfect color for this fall.  And somehow reminds me of this delicious pumpkin bread that I am definitely making this week. 

Hope you have a great week, friends! xo

I shared this on Instagram, but I think it’s worth sharing here for posterity, also I am an old millennial, therefore, I still have a soft spot for blogs. I’m starting fresh, so here is a new journal to share some story and inspiration with you. 

So, after 4-ish years of designing I’ve decided to make some changes. One being a new name! Sarah York Designs is now Suna Studio. Pronounced, sun-ah.✌🏼The name is kind of a take on the Gaelic word for “happiness”. My work is about bringing happiness through design, and I have Irish roots a few generations back, so it just seemed right. 🍀 I’m also changing the way I approach design, call it “slow”surface pattern design. More hand painted designs, more simplicity, more emphasis on well made and ethically made products. Less waste. Not fast fashion. I want to design things that will last and can be re-used or can be recycled, and won’t hurt people or the planet in the process. I’m so thankful for you following along on my journey and hope that you’ll stick around for this next chapter. 

Thank you bunches friends! xo, Sarah
