Design Wants...

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I keep a folder in my Gmail for home decor pieces and design ideas that I come across or feel inspired by. It's creatively titled "Design Wants"... I pulled a few of my recent saves and shared them with you below. Hope they inspire and/or entertain you as much as they do me!
State shape cutting boards. These are so cool! They come in every state (some more practical than others). Massachusetts (above) is one of my favorites. At $48.00 they would make a cute house warming gift or a going away present for the new state in someone's life! Get them here.

I fell in love with this fireplace screen a few months back. Not sure how effective it is, but aesthetically it is a gem.  I love it with those birch logs piled up next to it and that Greek key moulding - oh my, so lovely!

I have been SEARCHING for a rustic ladder for my living room to hang my throw blankets on as pictured above. Finally I discovered one in the barn at my parent's farm house, but was quickly denied access to it... I didn't realize it, but I am a throw blanket hoarder. This would do wonders for keeping our living space organized and chic. I find I am really picky when it comes to ladder options, so the search is still on. via


How awesome are these?! Found them on etsy and I'm thinking about framing a few and adding them to a gallery wall in the apartment. I loved the idea of getting J's sign, my sign and Bug's sign, but then remembered we are all Scorpios. The three of us are literally born only a few days apart. I am the oldest in the family by 4 days so I am obviously the wisest/smartest. It's times like this I wish I had more wall space!! I need a house...

There is something about this chandelier - I am so intrigued by it. At first glance they look like individual light bulbs but really they are more like water drop pendants. Though it has a modern feel to it, I could really see it working over a round rustic wood table in a room with all neutral fabrics and wall color (think restoration hardware). It's always good to have some sort of conversation piece, something unexpected.... 

Bisous, Elle
