An inspiration board.

July 23rd, 2011

  I’m currently working on the chair project, but in the meantime I’ve let myself imagine how it all might come together. So far I’m digging it! I’m always fighting with the Dusty Turquoise Fedora flor tiles I bought for the rug here. It is a dusty baby blue that I love, but it’s much [...]

  I LOVE them! I found two of these vintage molded fiberglass chairs on Chicago’s Craiglist yesterday. They match the studio perfectly and will make perfect head chairs for our conference table! I’m not exactly sure what year they are from, but the owner has had them for over 25 years. The beautiful label says [...]

I’ll admit it. I’m pretty into DesignSponge’s Before and After, and how can you not be with all of those amazing reupholstered chairs? I’ve been on the hunt for a year now for the perfect beginner project to see just how difficult it can be to bring an old chair back to life. Now that [...]

A few months back I found an impossibly simple looking tutorial on Crafty Nest by Heika DeHart for what I’ve been calling “String lamps.” I’ve always audibly scoffed when seeing the Random Light at Design Within No Where Near My Reach for nearly $700, and that’s for the smallest one, so I was really excited to [...]

I can see the solidified drips of metallic silver spray paint like it was yesterday. Now I peruse [...]

Just discovered Pure Modern’s Holiday Gift Guide, 100 Gifts Under $100. It’s just too good not to share. Some of my favorites are the Paper Pot and the Ceramic Tree Bird House. Happy shopping!

Designer Discounts

November 22nd, 2010

Did you think that outlet stores were only something seen in the blur of your window down remote suburban highways? Think again. Some of the most expensive online modern furniture and accessory shops on my radar have the best sale rooms, sample sales and even outlets! Save $500 on a designer rug? Scratch and dent sales on [...]

Modern Rugs Under $250

November 12th, 2010

The good news is that there are many (shockingly) affordable modern rugs online. I found a wonderful rug for our office at of all places Walmart.com. (I hate to admit that.) But when I was looking for a big style piece for a little budget room, they had just what I was looking for, coming [...]
