I am loving these accessories for the Halloween season!

Bride & Groom Hanging Bats from ZGallerie

Bride & Groom Hanging Bats from ZGallerie

 

With a 42″ wing span these hanging bats are great! They are from ZGallerie and cost $19.95 each.

 

Bone Candleholder from Pottery Barn

This Bone Candleholder is from Pottery Barn and is 5.5″x6″x4″h and is $19.00. I would love to see 3-5 of these in a group as a centerpiece with varying candle heights.

 

Staircase Silhouette

Lastly, a DIY project from Martha Stewart. This Staircase Silhouette is a way to add some seasonal decoration to a space often neglected- the stair risers. All of the directions and a template can be found here. If I only had stairs…

 

Happy Halloween!

Planters

September 8, 2009

Here are some great planters that could work both indoors and outdoors, because I will do anything for summer not to end!

 

Nature Planter by Design Night

Nature Planter by Design Night

 

This first planter is from Design Night  and is called the Nature Planter. This great planter is 18″ tall x 22″ wide and comes in the three colors above and is priced at $375.00 . The planter was designed for a larger plant whose roots need to go deeper to be in the center with several smaller pockets surrounding the larger plant, and three drainage holes on the bottom. Each planter is hand made using a six part mold in Portland, Oregon.

 

Pods by Pad, from Pot-ted

Pods by Pad, from Pot-ted

This planter, Pods, is from PAD. The Pods are made of 100% recyclable aluminum and come in 6 different colors- black, white, red, orange, gold and seafoam. The Pods also come in either a full skirt or a half skirt with stands of either 15″ or 22″ tall. They are suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications and range in price from $45-$165. They can be purchased at Pot-ted (a favorite garden store of mine) as well as a number of other retailers that are listed on their website.

Often times, its all in the details…so here are a few pieces that can add the whimsical aspect to any room…

Oh, Snap Cheese Slicer from ZGallerie

Oh, Snap Cheese Slicer from ZGallerie

 

This cheese board and stainless steel cheese slicer from ZGallerie is one of the cleverest things I have seen lately. The board is made from beech wood and is 5″x9″- the perfect size for a small selection of great cheeses and at under $20, it can’t be beat!

Dragon Lamp by Jonathan Adler

Dragon Lamp by Jonathan Adler

 

I have always loved Jonathan Adler and his ability to create beautiful pieces while infusing sophisticated humour into all of his work. The base of the lamp is made of lucite with a nickle stem and black shade. The dragon is made out of porcelain and since the dragon just rests on the lucite base, any of Jonathan’s menagerie animals can be used! Its a great way to spruce up a room and for those of us that get bored easily- the interchangeability makes it a perfect lamp.

Marimekko Taikamylly Wall Hanging from CB2

Marimekko Taikamylly Wall Hanging from CB2

 

This Marimekko Taikamylly Wall Hanging from CB2 really caught my eye when I saw it. It is made out of 100% cotton and measures at 58 1/4″ x 91 1/4″. The piece is hung with two aluminum hanging rails. The scale of the design on this wall hanging creates multiple dynamic points of interests. I think it would look great to hang three of these along a wall or one on either side of a large doorway.

A Few Fabulous Finds!

July 24, 2009

Here are some fabulous pieces that I am loving today!

Hollywood Regency Chair- from Fabulousmess on Etsy.com

Hollywood Regency Chair- from Fabulousmess on Etsy.com

 

I love this chair! The seller reupholstered it in black patent leather and painted the frame a high gloss black. It has such classic lines and details- it would be perfect in an entry or in a bedroom as a reading chair. If you have a chair like this with a not so great fabric- don’t despair! As you can see here- it can definitely be salvaged.

Grey and Yellow Accent Table from OhClementine on Etsy.com

Another great piece from Etsy.com! This table is fabulous! I love the color combination the seller chose to paint it. And, it’s another piece you could do yourself with practically any accent table- pick two colors and get painting!

Sunflower Down Throw Pillows from thisisnotikea.com

Sunflower Down Throw Pillows from thisisnotikea.com

 

These two down throw pillows from thisisnotikea.com caught my eye immediately. The colors are great and would perk up any neutral sofa, but what I love even more is the scale of the design. These bold, large scale fabrics are great for the summer and with these pillows, you don’t have to spend a lot to get an interesting summertime room.
