Living Typography

This fun alphabet is meant to be used to tell many stories. Besides serving as shelter for our feathery friends, these kooky letters and numbers can be hung anywhere outside your home as a nameplate or even as house numbers.“Living Typography” is the crafty work of designer Nishant Jethi, who reproduces all 26 letters of the alphabet and the numbers 0 to 9 in hollow wooden shapes, becoming funky bird houses. What a super duper idea!

White As a Feather

As our feathery friends start making their way back into our gardens, let's welcome them with these fun and stylish bird houses and feeders. They deserve a nice place to hang out while filling our terraces and backyards with sweet melodies. For sure, if I was lucky enough to have some outdoor space, a couple of these would be part of my decor. Although you can find them in different colors, I picked white — not just because I love everything white— but because their colorful plumes will stand out even more.

Colorful Flourishes

As you're getting ready to beautify your outdoor space and start looking for fun pieces to brighten it up, here are some whimsical chairs for you consideration. Inspired by the designs of traditional wrought iron fencing, the Versha Chair is designed by British artist and designer David Le Versha. Their playful backs and lovely colors make it hard for me to choose a favorite. They're so cute, they put a big grin of my face. By the way, these might also be a great choice to add some fun to your kitchen table. Oops, I almost forgot. These beauties are brought to you by the one and only Anthropologie.

Authentic Gardening

If you have a green thumb and you're always in search of original ways of displaying your greenery, these plant bags may do the trick. The innovative Urban Garden Series, designed by Patrick Nadeau for Authentics, is a fun alternative to the conventional ceramic and plastic pots found in your local nursery. The inventive Plant Sack is made of coated textile fabric giving it a casual look and making it quite practical. The sacks are filled with water-storing clay marbles for easy drainage. This new and versatile plant system allows you to place or hang your flowers, plants or herbs practically anywhere in your pad without the use of additional saucers. They're ideal for those plant lovers in need of unconventional and chic indoor gardens. Enjoy your weekend!

Save It From A Rainy Day

As we get ready to enjoy our outdoor spaces and take care of our plants and blooms, it's important to be conscious about water conservation. To help us in this effort, young Dutch designer Bas van der Veer has created a rainwater collection system that plugs right into your downspouts, providing a watering can that fills up automatically when it rains. The Raindrop Mini, inspired by a drop of water, was designed specifically to be used on balconies and in small gardens. We all know recycling rainwater is a simple way of reducing household water consumption, so this genius system makes it easy for city dwellers to store and reuse rainwater in urban environments.

Elevate Your Plants

I'm so looking forward to the arrival of Spring next week, and I bet some of you are feeling the same way. It's been a long and dreary Winter. So in order for us to get in a Spring state-of-mind, I found these slick and colorful planters for your home. Made out of powder coated spun aluminum, the Walter planters feature five small holes for drainage making them ideal for any outdoor environment. Whether hung on a wall, from a tree or even standing tall among your beautiful perennials, the Walter planters give your green thumb an array of options to display this season's blooms. They're great for small delicate succulents, cactus, herbs, or lettuces. Are you loving them as much as I am? Ah, remember Daylight Saving Time resumes this weekend, so don't forget to set your clocks one hour ahead before going to bed tonight.
