Layer

Layer-1-Design Crush

 

Like to change up your decor as often as you change your clothes? South Korean industrial designer Sohyun Yun has created a chair – Layer – made out of clear acrylic. It’s entirely customizable, inspired by our consumerist society where people buy things then quickly discard them once something new comes along.

SACKit

SACKit-1-Design Crush

 

I definitely had a beanbag chair growing up, it was pastel green to match one of the colors in the tribal design of my comforter. (Eep.) And to be honest I wouldn’t mind having a few for extra seating as an adult. I especially love these ones from SACKit, because a bit of a back would definitely come in handy in my mid-30s and the addition of a footrest makes them seem extra special.

CB2 Spring

CB2-5-Design Crush

 

Somewhere along the way, CB2 has become less the little sister to Crate & Barrel and more the standout. The offshoot has become a destination for affordable modern design that I find myself clamoring for and ogling. CB2’s spring collection is incredible, full of bold modern lines and lots of metallics.

A Cabinet Makeover with Walls Need Love

Walls Need Love-1-Design Crush

 

This Depression era kitchen cabinet has played a big role in my home as a bar cabinet. I love having a dedicated place to house all of my favorite barware and spirits, but the piece was in need of a little refresh since I first painted it glossy black a few years ago.

When Walls Need Love reached out about checking out their products I knew just what to experiment on. I’d toyed with the idea of wallpapering the interior of the cabinet ever since painting it, but to be honest I was nervous the pieces within might not pop as much if up against a pattern.

Walls Need Love has a fantastic selection of removable wallpaper, just the level of commitment I was looking for (RE: low). If I didn’t like the end result I could simply remove it and call it a day. To start I ordered samples of four designs – Vintage Nautical, Watercolor Cactus, Crazy Pineapples, and Retro Nouveau – and after much deliberation decided to go with the Retro Nouveau. While I thought I wanted something bright and large in scale, it turned out that the best fit for both the cabinet and my style was the smallest and most neutral.

The removable wallpaper itself was really easy to install. I measured and cut a length off of the roll (with a little extra for unforeseen errors), then removing about a foot of the backing paper at a time started at the top and made my way down. I used a wooden ruler to smooth out any bubbles as I went. Lining up a smaller pattern like this isn’t the easiest when it comes to other adding other pieces of paper, but I made my way slowly and used a razor blade to trim off any excess. Overall I’m really pleased with how easy this little makeover was, and with the impact it makes in my dining room. Removable wallpaper is so versatile, I can’t wait to try out some other home projects of different scale with it.
