Stuck on You, Kid.

 

 

When we grow up there’s a sense of playfulness from our childhood that never really leaves. We find ourselves reverting back to the days of sidewalk chalk and recess in the most subtle of ways – and in today’s instance, we are giving you another outlet to let those grade school colors fly: wallpaper. These fun and edgy wallpapers not only look great in any children’s room, but can also be brought in to other parts of the house that could use a touch of whimsy.

Hanging with the Best

 

Let’s face it – we always seem to outgrow our closets. The idea of keeping all of our wearable belongings tucked away in a tiny box is less than ideal, and pretty soon we find ourselves with the inevitable closet overflow. We’ve put together for you a few minimal clothing hangers that minimize clutter and also make planning your next-day outfit a breeze. Whether your closet is shrinking or your wardrobe is expanding, these clever solutions for display-worthy clothing racks will keep you organized and also give you an excuse to buy more clothes – how can you go wrong?

Fool Proof Foliage

 

Low-maintenance plants such as succulents and air plants (specifically tillandasia) are becoming quite the rage in home decor and there’s no wonder – they are practically fool proof. The great thing about air plants is that they don’t require any soil and only need to be watered about twice a week. Because of their exposed roots, you can pretty much plant these babies in anything as long as they have exposure to sunlight. We love the whimsy of Etsy shop boygirltees and their toy animal planters (seen above). You may recall us using painted toy animals in our holiday party for party decor, so these were right up our alley. How fun would these be on a kid’s room windowsill?

 

 

Speaking of whimsy, these jellyfish-inspired seashell planters from Petitbeast are an innovative way to display your air plants. Below is Etsy seller redcrowned modern adaptation with the ability to customize your own ceramic vase.

 

 

We love the rustic air planters below from sassycontessa made of ceramic vessels decaled with the pages of old books that specifically discuss the tillandsia plant.

Rethink Spotlight: Shop Savannah Fashion Week

 

We were thrilled when Savannah Magazine asked us to be a part of their Shop Savannah Fashion Week! The goal was to go on the hunt for trendy fashion finds that are also must-have looks for Spring. Erika and Sarah took their keen design eyes with them and were able to find classic staples that could easily be carried from day to night. See full article here.

Jungle Fever

There is a noticeable international flair in the design world these days, and it makes me want to pack my bags and travel around the world for the sake of design inspiration (and the food, of course). Until that time comes, I am perfectly content with pretending to explore far away lands through the online gathering of trendy international things. I’ve got a hunch that the first stop of the design community is a wild jungle safari. This trend combines the previous popular looks such as chevron and coral and introduces a few new components like olive green and animal motifs.

 

Take your home on an adventure with the addition of these hot safari looks:
