Now that is one heck of a DIY.

I came across this pic on Remodelista the other day. The house, designed by architects Anderson Anderson, was first featured in Dwell. Check out the chandelier. It's "made from tree branches wrapped with crystals and light strands." Amazing, right? Wonder if it was inspired by this...

Spring has sprung... well, indoors it has anyway.

The weather here has been sucking. Gray and snowy. Boo. So it was nice to come across some spring-like color when running errands at Superstore today. They had these fun bath accessories in such great colors. Towels, bath mats, and rubber-finish bath accessories. And did you notice the prices? Along with the bath stuff there were sheet sets, too. I know the mirrors aren't colorful, but I couldn't resist snapping a pick. I thought they were a pretty good find for $49.00.

Pretty Pretty Rugs

Find all images here

Randall Gallant over at Shaun Ford Design was good enough to let me know about this fantastic product line they are carrying from Belgium called Limited Edition. SFD has some pics on their Facebook page, but you really need to check out the website, too. How beautiful are these rugs? I'm not sure how I'd feel about hiding any of the gorgeousness under furniture. (Oh, and SFD has an authentic refurbished Turkish rug - and samples - in their showroom.) Randall also sent me a link to EDITION Magazine. I haven't really read any of it yet cuz I was too busy looking at the great photos. Us designers, so easily distracted by pretty pictures :)

Thanks for the tip Randall!

I sooooooo need to get one of these!

I saw these fantastic humidifiers on the Nate Berkus show. They so don't look like humidifiers! They're stylish! And they come in pretty colors! How great is this? Especially for a designer living in crazy dry Calgary who gave away her humidifier because it was ugly? (That would be me.)

Yes, Yes, Yes.

I was just looking at the most recent issue of Lonny and came across this pic. The grasscloth wallpaper is a lot like the stuff I put in my bedroom, and the plan has been to get an upholstered headboard as soon as finances allow. This is one for the inspiration file...
