Cardboard Furniture?

Cardboard Furniture?

Yup. You read that right. Cardboard furniture. KARTON is thinking outside the box and created a 100% recyclable product that fits easily into the urban lifestyle and complements it: affordable yet stylish, low maintenance but entirely functional. Beds, dressers, tables, they have it all. Get this – it can be assembled in minutes without tools. The company claims its high-grade corrugated paperboard means its products are super strong. You can even paint it.

Who would have thought?

Pantone Color of the Year

Pantone Color of the Year

Did you guys hear about the new Pantone color of the year for 2018? Ultra violet it is!

color of the year

There is a whole backstory on Pantone’s selection their yearly color. And lots of people have thoughts on what it means – like this interesting, albeit slightly political take from Refinery 29. Ingenuity, unity, feminism – whether or not you are into the analysis of the color “ultra violet” and it’s meaning, one thing is for sure, we’ll be seeing a lot more of this color. Pantone’s color of the year typically manifests in fashion, decor and wedding trends.

I’ll be honest, I’m not too sure about this year’s Pantone color of the year. I’m not really a purple person but I am intrigued to see how people are going to use it. I think subtle accents is the best way to use this vibrant shade. I’ve rounded up a few ways I’ve seen purple used in home decor that I think work and a few home decor accents that feature the 2018 Pantone color of the year.

This slab is super unique and has subtle shades of purple in the veining.… Read more

Modern Farmhouse Holiday Porch Decor

Modern Farmhouse Holiday Porch Decor

Can you believe Christmas is almost here!?! These last few months have really flown by. I was very reluctant to throw out my pumpkins and put away the fall decor (I waited until December 1st) but I finally decked the halls a little bit around here and put out some holiday porch decor. We’re traveling over the holidays this year so we did not buy a big tree or decorate inside, but I do like to keep our porch current with seasonal decor, especially since we’ve done so much to improve the look of the exterior of the house. So, here’s how we decorated our modern farmhouse exterior with some holiday porch decor 🙂

Holiday Porch Decor

I kept it very simple. I picked up a couple of real wreaths from the Christmas tree tent for our main entry and tied bows using black and white plaid ribbon. I also grabbed a couple poinsettias – I’m not typically a poinsettia fan but since our rug has some red and maroon tones I thought it would work. I think it’s imperative that you take the poinsettias out of the cheesy plastic wrap they come in and put them in a different container.… Read more

Semihandmade Launches New Line of Custom Cabinet Doors

Everyone has heard of IKEA, but have you heard of Semihandmade? Semihandmade is a company that makes custom cabinet doors to fit IKEA cabinets allowing you to have the look of a custom kitchen at a lower price point. Semihandmade’s newest line of custom cabinet doors was designed by blogger, designer and product creator extraordinaire, Sarah Sherman Samuel. She’s also the designer behind some pretty awesome wallpapers!

Inspired by classic beadboard because of its versatility, Sarah created a modern beadboard look. I love the detail the clean lines give the cabinets, while still looking fresh and sleek.

They come in 8 colors! 

And if the new custom cabinet doors were not enough, Sarah designed a line of brushed brass drawer and door pulls to go along with it!

Pretty awesome, huh?

Hanging Chair Roundup & Styling Ideas

Hanging Chair Roundup & Styling Ideas

I’m working on a design for an interesting room for a client -a yoga room! How often does one get to design an in-home yoga room? It’s been a fun space to work on and I’m so glad my client loved the idea of putting a woven hanging chair in there! You guys, I love woven chairs and hanging woven chairs are even better. They are fun, versatile and add a unique element to a space. You can use them inside or out. Just imagine them with a couple throw pillows and a fluffy blanket.  Since the hanging chair we originally chose for my client’s yoga room was on backorder for like ever, I had to find a replacement. I was scouring lots of hanging chairs so I figured I’d round some of my faves up for you guys. Hanging chairs come in different shapes, sizes and colors. You can even find double chairs that seat 2 as well (#8 below) as woven hanging benches (#10 below)!
