The Beauty of Books

In my future dream home, I would have a wall made entirely of bookshelves. I just LOVE the look! And while I am really diggin the convenience of my new Kindle (thanks Tony!), it may put a bit of a damper on this aspiration! Well pre-kindle, we were lucky to get 8 built in bookshelves with our new apartment. Probably my 2nd favorite apartment feature, after the pantry of course! And at least once a week I think about how I’d like to rearrange the books and other things I currently store on them

West Elm & Etsy = Weltsy!

Two of my favorite shops, Etsy and West Elm just joined forces. Aaaand, life is good.

Craig, your list rocks.

Who is this Craig character, and how did he get to be so awesome??? When it’s too late at night, too cold outside, or (let’s get real) I’m feeling lazy, and can’t make it to an antique or consignment shop….Craigslist is my total “go to” spot for furniture deals. Here are a few Craigslist items I have found recently that I wanted to share…mainly because I can’t buy them myself and would be thrilled to live vicariously though you, should you be able to. Just click on the location link under the photo to see the original listing. And Boston

Plates on a wall

Just like the movie Snakes on a Plane, “Plates on a Wall” are a non-intuitive (and sometimes scary) placement! But UNLIKE the movie (which I never saw, and based off the reviews, hope you didn’t either) plates on a wall can rock! Decorative plates are incredibly accessible, inexpensive, and the variety is amazing. Pick a color scheme (greens, blues, white), a design theme (flowers, polka dots, geometric shapes) or just start collecting plates that you think are beautiful. No matter how you do it, it looks fantastic.. and it’s your own! Check it. Down

Show off those prized jewels…

I love jewelry…. and not the fancy shmancy kind that costs a fortune, but the super fun costume jewelry that you can get on the cheap! But I have this problem, that I’m sure many of you out there have (don’t be shy!) and that is that I forget about the awesome pieces I own because they are tucked away somewhere where I don’t see them. Solution? Pick up one of these funky jewelry displays and accomplish two tasks. Remember the goods you have, and subsequently wear them more often… Add some design/art to your bedroom! Check it out!

Closet Envy.

Oh, we’ve all got it. I swear, I would trade my bedroom for a huge walk in closet. Don’t worry Tony – you can sleep in there with me…. Just don’t touch the shoes, ok?? Let’s take a moment to be “positively” envious. Can you guess who this closet belongs to? All I want for Christmas… is youuuuu! Love the simplicity here.
