Omigosh.  This pillow from birdenvy is beyond adorable …

Perfect for a child’s room or someone that just loves kitties.  Made from chenille and tweed.  They also make owls.

Steve from Blue’s Clues Handy Dandy Brooklyn Pad

I’m loving this Williamsburg ‘bachelor pad’ belonging to Steve Burns [from Blue’s Clues].  I would have killed for a space like this in Brooklyn.

A courtyard nestled in the middle of a woodsy, modern, super cool space really sealed the deal for me.  Love love love.

Designed by Eric Liftin.  See the rest of this Brooklyn oasis at Fast Company’s Co.Design page.

Decorating w/ Gray

Gray has been a popular neutral for awhile, but some people are still really reluctant to see it as anything other than drab.  I love gray – it’s the color of our bedroom walls and a large portion of my wardrobe.  To me, a gray room is elegant and cool and it goes great with bright accents or other neutrals.  Perfect for someone [like me] that likes to change things up a lot.  And you aren’t just limited to a gray living or bed room.  Gray looks great anywhere…

Vintage Pull Down Maps

Now that we have so much wall space, I’ve been on the hunt for unique ways to fill it.  My latest love – vintage pull down maps.

Beautiful Wallpaper by trove.

I have always loved wallpaper [despite my mother’s love for floral print walls] and I totally flipped when I saw the designs at trove!

Hand-Stamped Pillows by Heidi Devlin Design

devlin

I just ordered one of these handmade pillows by Heidi Devlin Design and I cannot wait for it to arrive.  I love pillows – they are such an easy way to change up a room.  I tend to rotate ours from room to room depending on my mood and the time of year.  I like to mix a few neutral colored throw pillows with some brightly colored ones to give the room a little jolt.  The French Patisserie pillow is going to look great on our sofa!

Modern Fireplace Design: Portable, Rollable, Hideable

I don’t know about where you are, but here in Chicago IT IS COLD.  Right now I am looking out the window at a fresh blanket of snow covering the ground and even more flakes falling from the sky.  All I can think about are things that make me warm – hot cocoa, fuzzy slippers, comfy sweaters, and the warm glow of a fire.

There is something so mesmerizing about fire – watching flames dance around as they curl around the logs, listening to the crackling of the wood … the smoky scent that fills the air, the warmth radiating from the hearth … ahhhhh.

Modern fireplace design comes with a hefty price tag, but there are some really amazing options to gawk at and dream of maybe one day being able to afford.

Don’t have a fireplace?   Candles just aren’t enough?  Try this tabletop fireplace designed by Carl Mertens.  Two stainless steel “logs” that can bring a warm glow to any room.  Available at Generate Design.

These indoor/outdoor ottoman fires turn your fireplace into a functional piece of furniture when not in use.  From Conmoto.

These little hot pot fires are also from Conmoto and would work great for outdoor entertaining.

The Gift of Time – Wall Clocks!

The other day I came to the realization that I am surrounded by time, yet I never have enough of it.  The microwave, the coffee maker, the stove, the computer, the alarm clock, the cable box, the stereo, and my cell phone constantly remind me how very little time I actually have.  I swear I have aged like 10 years since I gave birth.  I don’t know where it goes, but time really does fly. Anyway, the point is that I have all of these digital clocks all over the place and not one wall clock – which is ridiculous.  The wall clock is a staple of the home and we can’t let that quiet tick-tock be silenced by an LCD display.  So, give someone the gift of time this holiday season … or give it to yourself – you deserve it.

This MDF and bamboo creation is the work of Keith Moore of PILOTdesign in Minneapolis.  I love his color combinations!  Be sure to check out the rest of his modern clock pieces and his lighting designs – very cool.  Splat White-on-Green Clock $59.00.

This little owl clock is soooo cute!  Made from laser cut bamboo and fitted with a silent motor [making it perfect for baby’s room!].  Made by Maiko Kuzunishi of Decoylab in Kansas City, MO.  $48.00.

These beautiful china clocks are the works of Jenilyn of Faire Houre.  The clock on the left is made with a porcelain plate from PiP Studio and on the right, some gorgeous lacey looking repurposed china.  ON SALE – $39.00 / $33.00

Such a simple design and a totally modern feel.  I love this Pendolo Clock by husband and wife team Vincent and Jessie of uncommon.  Available in a wide range of colors.  $59.00. You should also check out some of the amazing furniture pieces handcrafted by Vincent at Dust Furniture.

Wicker Chairs. Yes, Wicker.

Every time I pass through a yard sale or visit a thrift shop, I see some sort of wicker chair sadly sitting out with a low price tag dangling from a piece of string tied to the arm.  When I think of wicker chairs, images of tacky yard furniture come to mind, but that doesn’t have to be the case.  I found some great looking wicker on Flikr – cozy nooks, inviting porches, weathered vintage, and even a few modern looks.  The next time I see one of those wicker chair cast-aways, I will not turn my nose and walk away – I am in need of a chair for my “office” [which is really just a corner of our living room w/ a desk and a bookcase] and I think a nice wicker chair with a cozy cushion would be the perfect fit.  If you have some good looking wicker, I’d like to see it.  Email me.

Reuse Those Lightbulbs!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  I am STUFFED and was just killing some time on the computer when I saw this awesome How To on Instructables.  This light bulb vase is such a clever use for your burnt out bulbs [that you are now replacing with CFLs – wink].  The base is just an aluminum ring from a recycled hard drive and they have some other options for keeping the bulb upright as well.  They have also made a light bulb terrarium – LOVE IT.
