Flexible Flatware

Chevron paper by Belle & Union. Giving new life to old things is practically our mantra here at the studio and today we’ve lived up to our philosophy with the creation of these vintage-turned-chic powder coated silverware. Don’t let the bright colors dissuade you; this flatware works well in a variety of table settings – from traditional to poppy to rustic. Take a look at our powder coated cutlery in three completely different setting styles: From top to bottom: 1. The delicate lines of the Cake Vintage paper placemats accent the feminine chinaware. Soft blue hues found in the plate help subdue our teal powder coated spoons.  Let the blues remain the subtle splash of color and keep with a neutral napkin. 2. Our silverware gives this kid’s (or grown-up’s) setting a fresh twist. We love the playful lines of this chevron dinnerware by Target paired with the vintage-inspired…

Wild Adventure Ahead

It looks like Elle Decor has been wandering alongside us in the safari and they’ve got their latest issue to prove it! You may recall our recent blog about home items inspired by a jungle safari and this week we are venturing even further into the wild. The above Elle Decor snippet features busy animal prints and warm tones that put your home into the thick of things, which made us want to try our hand at creating a trendy safari look on a cooler scale that has a bit more longevity in the home. The end result gives you two very different ways of adding some jungle flair to any space while still maintaining your personal style. Check out another one of our takes on the safari theme: 1. Gazelle Bust – Anthroplogie’s animal busts have the versatility to be used in both child and adult spaces. What could be a fun singular…

Lions, Tigers, and Bears – Oh Yes!

It seems that deer aren’t the only animals roaming the faux taxidermy forests these days. Felt, paper mache, and even crochet are adorning the likes of these domestic beasts and we are loving every second of it. Below are a few animal heads we’ve been collecting for some time now that add the rustic feel to your home without the taxidermy guilt.

Color Crush: Tangerine

We may still be bundling up at night (after a long day’s work at the studio of course), but that doesn’t keep us from dreaming of that sweet summer sun. Luckily for us, summer has come a bit early with the introduction of this season’s hottest color trend: tangerine. This color is dominating the design world with its fresh, warm vibe. A few of you may also recall a Quadrille ottoman we made a while ago which you can see here. Check out a few examples below on how to bring summer into your home all year round: Clockwise from top left: Photo by Pernilla Hed – Hus and Hem Trina Turk – Clayton Gray Home Ariannabelle Honore design –  Cote Maison

The Right Direction

Image Credit: October Issue of Country Living It’s no secret the design team at Rethink is an avid supporter of all things woodland and rustic. Now, we are so thrilled to see the arrival of a new design trend: native american arrows. Just when we had finished painting every square inch of our (make-believe) studio a black and white chevron, the delicate lines of the hunting arrow quickly swept us off our feet. One of our favorite inspiration images (above) features the wall covering Zuni by Cavern Home. We love the classic black and white lines mixed with warm hues to create a space both timeless and cozy. Below are a few extra items we found to help you get this dreamy indian feel: From top left (clockwise): 1. Linocut Print 2. Stationary 3. Tea Towel 4. Navajo Pouch 5. Throw Pillow
