Side Tables + Nightstands

You know what they say – side table in the living room, nightstand in the bedroom! (Oh wait, I’m the only one who says that. I digress.) Tiny tables are a part of decorating that I especially look forward to. They can be relatively affordable and simply swapping one or two out can change the look and feel of an entire space. Check out these ten that have caught my eye, I’m really feeling warm metals lately.

The Beauty of Bar Cabinets

I love a good bar cabinet, you might remember the one I made from an old depression era cabinet. It’s just such a classy piece of furniture, a bar cart taken to the next level that’s ready to welcome you after a long day or guests the minute they walk into your home. My favorites have always a mid-century vibe, but I’m also loving some of the more unique pieces below. How about you, do you prefer a bar cart or cabinet?

Cloth Napkins

Fabric napkins equate themselves with a special occasion to me, but it doesn’t really have to be that way does it? I’ve been trying to use the mindset that every day is a good day to use things that feel special, including the cloth napkins in my pantry. Using them for an ordinary Tuesday dinner has the ability to make the pot of soup you’ve been eating for a few days taste 100% better.

Quiet Town

 

Quilted and color-blocked canvas shower curtains made in Brooklyn and naturally water resistant. Hand-woven, hand-dyed cotton kilim bath rugs constructed in India. Custom, local dye jobs that allow risks to be taken and lower our environmental impact. I can’t find one thing not to like about Quiet Town‘s collection of bath textiles.

On the Hunt: Headboard Edition

I’ve only had two real beds in my life, a cherrywood sleigh daybed and a curved iron headboard that I’ve had since my mid-20s. (The cheap-o bed frame that I had in college and grad school certainly doesn’t count!) Right now I’m in the midst of a bedroom redo – plenty more on that to come – and am on the hunt for a new headboard, something more boho chic that reflects what my style has evolved into over the past decade.

Plume

 

Routers seem to be the main cause of WiFi frustration. They only work when placed in the so-called perfect spot and aren’t equipped to handle the needs of a busy home full of tech. Plume puts the router in the cloud, adapting in real-time to the devices and habits in your home. With a small Plume pod in each room you can now work, play, listen, and connect everywhere with a strong signal.

Let’s Talk Fireplaces

Homes to Love

If only every home could have a fireplace, there’s just nothing better to focus the guts of a room upon. My personal favorites are modern – blocky cement or white brick – with a space for storing wood, but I’m a sucker for nearly all of them. What I’ve learned is there’s no right way to do a hearth or mantel when, in fact, you don’t even need either one! Lots of rooms seen here have me thinking about tearing the facing right off of my own fireplace – would you dare?

Do-It-All Baskets

As someone who likes to keep relatively organized, I’m a basket lover by nature. In the living room they organize extra blankets and pet toys, in the bedroom shoes and laundry, and in the pantry recycling and dog kibble. I have them stored under sinks corralling cleaning products and beauty products, as well as in my office full of craft supplies. A good basket is versatile, sturdy, and easy on the eyes and here are thirteen I’ve got a crush on.
