CELEBRATING MODERNISIM

I just came across these wonderful prints inspired by the all-so-iconic Scandinavian aesthetic, and I'm just loving them! It's Liz Lyons' way of paying homage to mid-century, modernist design and designers like Eames, Jacobsen, Saarinen, Cathrineholm, Lindberg among others—and of course some of their most emblematic work. The prints come with a white border, ready for mounting and hand signed by her. You can see her complete collection in her Etsy shop Visual Philosopy. Enjoy!

JUST ADD WATER 

These are the kind of finds that give me an instant smile. Maybe it's their cheerful colors or simply because they bring back happy memories of Summer. Either way, this fabulous version of the classic garden hose will add a touch of coolness to your outdoors. The Dramm Hose from West Elm is made of rubber and nickel-plated brass and resists kinking and coils easily, even in cold weather. The yellow one is my favorite... which one is yours?

A TOUCH OF VINTAGE MODERN

I'm glad I stumbled upon these wonderful swinging wall lamps created by Logan Hendrikson from Onefortythree. Logan started designing and building furniture and lighting fixtures for his own house to later launch his online shop where he sells his mid-century inspired collection. His lamps are hand-bent and welded with durable powder coated finish in matte black or gloss white. The sockets are made of real Teak or Walnut wood veneer and wired with a cloth twisted cord to give it that vintage feel. I'm really liking the simple lines of these lamps. They're perfect if you're looking to add a little bit of industrial chic to your home.

A BRIGHT DECISION

Lighting is very important when putting together a room. As a matter of fact, selecting lamps for your decor is as important as choosing any piece of furniture, so include in your design plan from the get go. Floor lamps are particularly wonderful choices and can make great statement pieces in a living room. Dare to play with the size of the lamp to create contrast and a focal point in the room. Here are some amazing spaces with unique floor lamps that will inspire you next time you're in the market for a one. Which one is your favorite?

A TIMELESS CLASSIC

With just a couple of days left until we ring in 2013, time is running out to get a cool calendar for your wall. There are tons and tons of options out there, but if you're looking for something stylish and timeless, I'd consider Massimo Vignelli's Perpetual Wall Calendar. First introduced in 1980, this classic (and my all-time favorite) calendar can be used month after month, year after year while being a super graphic piece or art for your home office.

THE ISMS OF ART

One can never have enough artwork in their home, especially when its as cool and affordable as these super graphic fine art prints by Genis Carreras. Hanging a set of four or six of them on a crisp white will create a dramatic statement. Don't you think? If you like these, you'll love the rest of Genis' collection. Take a look here. I've already but the Relativism print on my wish list.
