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.

AURA

Aura Home-1-Design Crush

 

More good things coming to us by way of Australia, this time in the form of AURA by Tracie Ellis. High quality homewares inspired by years of global meandering, my favorites of which are the stoneware ceramics for the kitchen. With plenty of brights and pastels to choose from they’ll mix seamlessly with whatever you’ve already got going on in your cabinets.

Sage and Clare

Sage and Clare-1-Design Crush

 

Sage and Clare is my kind of boho – global treasures that are handmade, soulful, and eclectic. Husband and wife duo Chris and Phoebe’s passion for color, texture, and objects with heart comes through with every piece. Serious about ethical practices, they spend months every year working side by side with weavers, block printers, and screen printers to bring Sage and Clare designs to life.

Alphabeta Pendant Lamp

Alphabeta Pendant Lamp-1-Design Crush

 

The Alphabeta pendant lamp is a structural showstopper consisting of twenty-four different interchangeable spun-steel shades in eight different shapes – including various shaped bowls, cones, and tubes. It’s the world’s first digitally customizable pendant lamp with more than 10 billion possible combinations. When Alphabeta is displayed in groups it is likened to the letters of the alphabet forming words.

Let’s Talk Shelves

Kelly Beall-1-Design Crush

 

I despise the term shelfie, but I do love a well-styled set of shelves. I have three in my home that serve as both organizational epicenters and focal points. The built-in in my dining room (above) corrals favorite serving pieces and barware, along with a few other things like candleholders and glove molds. (Trays, party decor, and other odds and ends live in the cupboard underneath.) The freestanding set on wheels that resides in the kitchen holds most of my cookbooks, a collection of vases, and stacks of white dinnerware and glasses that I pull out for entertaining. And lastly, the shelves in my living room show off most of my books. (I want to get away from the organization by color, but haven’t been able to let go just yet!)

What’s your stance on shelves? Do you like them stacked full or sparse?

Askov Finlayson x Hygge & West

Askov Finlayson x Hygge & West-1-Design Crush

 

Menswear label Askov Finlayson has teamed up with home goods company Hygge & West for a limited edition line of wallpaper. The collection consists of two designs, both inspired by Askov Finlayson founder, Eric Dayton’s, childhood memories of winter in Minnesota. The two designs are available in four colors, and every sheet is hand-screen-printed in the U.S.A. I love the organic look of both and would say this collaboration is quite the success!

Studio Yama

Studio Yama-1-Design Crush

 

I’ve noticed lately that the more stress I’m experiencing, the more I look forward to a solid start to my day. Namely my morning cup of coffee. I make it a ritual of sorts – Chemex, quality beans, and just the right mug. The ceramic pieces of Studio Yama have caught my eye, with an aesthetic rooted in both Japanese and Swedish culture and design traditions their pieces strike a lovely balance of aesthetics.
