Nest is a literal nest egg! Crafted in 3D printed porcelain and steel as a numbered edition, Nest can be used to collect change and then smashed when full. Its metal base doubles as a makeshift hammer when the time comes, and inside you’ll find an unexpected homage to the traditional piggy bank in miniature.

I’d love to have one – or five – of these ceramic wrap vessels by Formantics in my hot little hands! Each piece is a bespoke handcrafted original artwork, with everything from the hand-drawn pattern to the glazing being completely unique.

It’s been a minute, well about three and a half years, since I did anything major to my living room. I’ve updated the floor rug and throw pillows and some other little things a few times, but nothing big. Lately I’ve been getting the itch to do an entire overhaul. Not that it’s in my budget at the moment, but it’s worth daydreaming over for a bit. The first piece I’d bring in would be this couch that I’ve had a crush on for years – I love how welcoming it looks. And a big round mirror over the mantel would make the room feel larger and add a nice focal point.
My fireplace doesn’t work at the moment, but I still enjoy a stack of logs nearby and this holder could double as a magazine holder if I get bored. A sweet little side table could either be used for its intended purpose or a plant stand. Didn’t you know that I love pieces that are multifunctional? This brass floor lamp will add some cozy light to the room.
I have a lot of books and love putting the on display, so a trio of these shelves should do the trick. (All lined up in a nice little row, of course.) Plants run rampant in my home, and one of these large bullet planters would hold a large palm nicely. A pretty blanket would bring in a simple pattern and some texture.
If you haven’t noticed, lately I’m heavily drawn towards a mix of wood and metal in neutral tones. This little table lamp combines all three very nicely. An updated bluetooth gramophone ties together the old-meets-new aesthetic I tend to gravitate towards, and the media cabinet gives a place for all other electronics in the living room.
No room is complete without art on its walls, and I really like the simplicity of this piece. A pair of these standing planters would flank the fireplace nicely, don’t you think? And a decent sized basket works hard in any number of ways, including holding blankets and pillows.
The edge on this coffee table is a unique feature that I really like, as are the thin brass legs. The navy blue in this large floor rug ties in perfectly with the hues in the rest of the room without being overwhelming.
The third source of light would be ideally situated in the corner of the room, directly over the crook of the sectional – the best reading spot! A pair of chairs that make a statement in pale pink finish things up, while a set of quartz coasters check off a necessity. Here’s to dreaming!Posted In accessories, behind the scenes, floors, furniture, house and home, lighting, living, my house
The temperature has been beyond frigid, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve been piling three or four blankets on top of my usual bedding each night. I’m so lucky to have a roof over my head and be able to pay the heating bill, but even those things haven’t felt like enough to stay warm. If you’re looking to add some layers, check out these options.
