Dreamy Daybeds

Emily Henderson-Design Crush

Around the age of 10 I wanted anything in my bedroom other than the twin canopy that had been handed down to me. I had my sophisticated eye set on a white metal framed daybed, you know the kind with the gold finial balls on each post? In other words, the cheap one. My grandparents had offered to buy me a daybed, just not That One. Off to the furniture store we went, eventually settling on a real beauty – cherry wood, scrolled head- and footboards, spindled back. After I moved off to college the day bed was retired to my Grandma’s spare bedroom, where it still sits in wait for me to one day (hopefully) hand down to my own daughter. All of this is the longwinded way of saying how thrilled I am that daybeds are having a moment again!

To Wallpaper or Not To Wallpaper

Flat-Vernacular-2-Design-Crush

 

In my first house the guest room featured a wall of patterned navy blue wallpaper behind the bed’s headboard that I loved. But one short year after completing the room I picked up and moved halfway across the country, and the walls in the 1900 house are paperless. Having been in the space for nearly two years I’m beginning to see things in a different light, and considering an accent wall here and there. The second floor bath or perhaps a wall in the dining room, maybe something subtle or something bold that knocks your socks off the moment you walk into the room. Here are ten wallpapers I’ve got my eye on – thoughts?

WKNDLA

WKNDLA

 

Anything featuring tassels is usually either A. a little too grandma or B. a little too hippie for me. Not so with WKNDLA. Brass, wood, and cotton play prominent roles in the different sculptural wall hangings and accessories owner Cindy Zell makes and sells. Their modern, minimal vibe is a breath of fresh air.

Bonnie and Neil

Bonnie and Neil-Design Crush

 

I first came across Australian textile design studio/duo Bonnie and Neil about a year ago, and it gave me butterflies. Their vibrant range of home products incorporate botanicals, bright patterns, and an occasional nod to Australiana culture, with designs influenced by their surroundings and a love of color. My favorites though are Bonnie and Neil’s plate collection (get in my cupboard already!).

Livada Fragrance Vase

Livada Fragrance Vase-1-Design Crush

 

One of my summer goals is to have fresh flowers around constantly. It’s one of my favorite ways to keep my home feeling fresh, and I usually pick up a bunch at the grocery store when I make my weekly run through. Designed by Studio Macura, the Livada Fragrance Vase is a glass vase meant to hold a small bouquet of flowers or herbs. Made to enhance and enjoy the fragrance of flowers, it consists of two glass pieces – a small glass container and a cover that’s pierced with a small hole to allow fragrance to make its way out.

Get Outside Already

Outdoor Furniture Roundup-1-Design Crush
Free-Standing Hammock

Have you been spending lots of time outside or are you holed up inside avoiding the heat? I’ve been doing a little bit of both, as well as avoiding some rainstorms by hanging out on my porch. (One of my favorite times to be out!) The key to enjoying the outdoors for me is making my yard just as livable as my house, which means furniture that carries over the same style and sensibilities. Peek at my backyard setup that I shared last year, then take a look at these stellar outdoor furniture pieces.
