January Marketplace Refresh

January is the perfect time to take a look at life and maybe make a few changes. I’m not talking huge life altering things, more like tiny refreshes with a focus on increased quality in life and home. I’ve updated The Marketplace with plenty of new goods to make your January refresh a reality. Plenty of new home goods, art, and more – here are just a few of my favorite pieces.

 

January-Refresh–Great.ly-Design-Crush

The Family of Things: Woodland and The Family of Things: Polar can add a bit of magic to your walls. A colorful geometric pillow cover packs a punch of color for your living room or bedroom. This navy dot cotton scarf is a great piece to layer with to keep out the chill. Use this cork bowl in the kitchen to corral all of that lovely citrus bounty. The understated Nebula Bangle will work hard all winter, then transition with your wardrobe to spring. Don’t forget about your skin – use this detox body oil in your bath and on your body. Make your time in the kitchen happier with this sweet hand block printed tea towel.

See all of or makers and their goods over on The Marketplace!

Jude Allman Stoneware Pottery

Jude Allmän Stoneware Pottery-1-Design Crush

 

When it comes to kitchenwares I’m definitely drawn towards simple yet heavy duty pottery. These hand-thrown food-safe glazed jugs, bowls, and other homewares by Jude Allman all exhibit a modern rustic influence that could fit in nearly any household. I love the clean lines and simple aesthetic that each piece has about it.

Mod Pieces

Mod Pieces-1-Design Crush

 

New-to-me Toronto-based Mod Pieces is scratching my itch for color, in nearly every room of the house. All products made my shop owner Lia are unique and sustainable, going against the throwaway culture that seems to surround us on a daily basis. The hope is to create truly one of a kind pieces that are rare, unique, and irreplaceable. I can definitely back that notion.

Camp Blankets

I’ve been taking full advantage of the lower temperatures each evening and curling up under a blanket with Bebe as I finish up work for the day. (The fact that dogs are essentially electric blankets is totally underrated in this day and age.) I’m also looking for a good reason to tote my heaviest camp blanket outdoors to either enjoy a hot beverage in the backyard or hang out around a campfire. And while I’m all stocked up, here are eight camp blankets I’ve got my eye on.

ROW 1: Modern Scout Throw // Civil War-Style Wool Blanket // Derailed Eco Throw
ROW 2: Black Kantha Quilt // Vintage Throw    ROW 3: Antique Buchanan Tartan Cashmere Blanket //
Signal Stripe Throw // Mega Knit

Anna Joyce

Anna Joyce-1-Design Crush

 

These hand-painted and printed pieces from Anna Joyce are riding high near the top of my Christmas wish list. They also make me want to get out my paints and see what kind of damage I could do to a tablecloth, just for fun. Maybe between Christmas and New Year’s when things slow down for a few days?
