Tips + Tricks: Plants (+ a Case Study Planter Giveaway)

 

If you’re anything like me you’re home is slowly being taken over by a jungle of houseplants. I don’t have the greenest thumb, but I try to help it thrive and grow as much as possible by attempting to give them the right amount of water, feeding them occasionally, and reading up on anything that might help me out. (And when one kicks the bucket I replace it and move on.)

Roland Kiyola Piano

 

She’s not cheap, but maaaaaaaan is she pretty. I’m of course talking about the Roland Kiyola Piano. It’s a MoMA Design Store exclusive, handcrafted in Japan by furniture-maker Karimoku. The modern designed digital instrument is minimal all around, but with a sound reminiscent of an acoustic model. I’ve never regretted ending my piano lessons more!

Købn Towels

 

I’ve never seen a beach towel I would happy hang on my wall, but then I met Købn. Sophie Matson’s line of towels are designed with interior trends in mind rather than beach vibes. They feature fringey edges, drop pile stripes, and the prettiest muted color palette.

ZAKKIA

 

Australia has so much fantastic art and design happening at any given moment. ZAKKIA is on a mission to make the world a more beautiful place through good design, all of it crafted by hand. The Sydney-based studio was founded by former Swede Sara Lundgren, and it’s the place where the design she grew up around and her love of materials meet. The makers behind ZAKKIA’s wares are all family-owned studios located mostly in Vietnam as well as a few in India.

The material is really the guiding force behind many of our designs. Our inspiration often comes from a material’s texture, or thinking about using a material in a way that hasn’t been done before. You will never find anything fussy about our designs. We find beauty in function and we always try to design products that can be used in multiple ways in many rooms of your home.

March Favorites

4/ Kristen Ess The One Signature Shampoo and Conditioner
I took some travel sizes of these along when I had to travel last month and really fell in love with the way they made my hair feel. The scent is more powerful than most hair products I’ve tried, but I don’t dislike it and feel like it helps cover any second day hair smell.

5/ MyChelle Lip Hints
These conditioning lip balms have been valuable players in keeping my dry winter lips moisturized. The light tints are a nice added bonus.

6/ Sqwishful Pop Up Sponges
These guys are 100% renewable plant-based, 100% biodegradable, and compressed to reduce their carbon footprint. And they come in a fun shape.

7/ Striped Knit Crop Jumpsuit

Omoshiro Block

 

The Omoshiro Block – or fun block – uses laser-cutting technology to create what is a hidden object in disguise. At first glance it’s just a square cube of notepaper, but as the paper is used an object begins to appear! Make your way through all of the paper to excavate it.
