A CLEVER TWIST ON MATERIALS

Contrary to their name, these Like Paper Lamps are completely made in cast in concrete. The one-of-a-kind lamps are uniquely designed by German designers Miriam Aust & Sebastian Amelung — each one of them made with their own set creases and folds. I particularly love how they look hanging in a set. Aren't they amazing? Enjoy the weekend!

FIRE ME UP!

I'm so ready for Fall to finally kick in. It seems like Summer doesn't want to let go here as we've been having rather unseasonably warm days here in the Northeast. I so can imagine myself cozying up next to this Fire Basket and enjoying a nice cup of joe on a crisp Fall night. The mobile fireplace is the newest member of Menu's outdoor collection by Norm Architects. I so want one now.

LEANING BEAUTY

I'm always in constant search of innovative pieces of furniture for my projects. Especially when working in small spaces where I need to get creative and make the most of the limited square footage. So scoring multi-functional pieces is always a good thing. Take for instance the Lean Man Side — a smart looking side table/bookshelf designed by Frank Flavell. Its slim and minimalist design makes it ideal as a night stand or side table. I guess I hit the jackpot!

A KNACK FOR LIGHTING

I'm totally having a crush on these gorgeous lamps designed and handcrafted by artist and woodworker Ryden Rizzo. His lighting fixtures, sold at Allied Maker, are beautifully made by him in his Sea Cliff, NY studio. I personally love their simple yet elegant design and the perfectly balanced proportion between wood and metal. To me they're almost pieces of art. Happy weekend!

CAPITALS OF COLOR

I've seen many interpretations of city maps, but these colorful and graphic renderings are one of my favorites. Created by self-taught artist known as Jazzberry Blue, these gallery quality giclée prints are a great way of having a piece of your favorite capital on your wall. The color combinations used are quite unique and unexpected. They're different and super fun! If you love this style, you will also love the rest of this artist's body of work that you can find here.

A SPLASH OF COPPER-TONE

Metallics have always played a strong role in home decor, but the on-trend metallic for the incoming season seems to be copper. This precious metal has evolved from a patina-like finishes to a very sleek and shiny surface. Thanks to its new renaissance, I've been seeing an avalanche of copper furnishings everywhere I go. From kitchen appliances to trendy bicycles, the selection is quite extensive. Its beautiful color makes it easy to mix with other natural materials and works beautifully with pastels, grays and earth tones... and of course, black. Now, there's no need to go crazy with this trend, adding one or two touches of cooper in your decor will be just right. Here are just a few of my favorite picks from the trend. (Love the bike!)

FOR THE SOFTER SIDE OF WINTER

I know it's a bit premature to be posting about Fall when we still about a month and a half left of Summer. But I simply couldn't resist sharing the upcoming collection from the Danish home decor brand Bloomingville. Their Autumn/Winter collection is a beautiful mix of metallics, wood, wool and beautiful patterns. Soft pinks, lavender, peach and grays dominate their new lookbook: a rather unexpected palette for the wintry season—but one that will definitely brighten up your decor on those long and chilly days. I encourage you to browse through their online catalogue here. It's to die for.

DESIGN ON WHEELS

This super chic little caravan puts cool back into camping. Danish company Design Camp recovers old retro caravans and refurbishes them to give them a second chance on life. After an impressive and much-deserved restoration, the trailers are transformed into modern mini boutique hotels on wheels equipped with custom bunk beds, graphic wallpaper and a trendy decor. Not a bad incentive to go on a road trip.
