I love a basket. A basket next to the sofa holding a cozy throw, a basket for the farmers market, a basket for the beach. You can always use one. I think this dip dye basket project via Martha Stewart is perfect for a Mother’s Day gift. Simply dip the bottom in Mom’s favorite accent color. Complete the gift by filling it with flowers and Mom’s fave treats. She is sure to feel the love. See the full tutorial via Martha Stewart.
I love sheepskin and Mongolian lamb accents in a room. It’s a wonderful way to bring comfort and coziness into a space that needs it. Feeling like your Sisal rug is too rough? Throw down some sheepskin rugs, poufs, pillows or stools to add a much needed softness. Do you love the look of your modern mesh desk chair, but not the comfort? Toss a sheepskin throw over the chair to make it and your office oh so cozy. Here is some inspiration to get you headed in the right direction. The look works best in small accents and not doing too much. Don’t miss the D.I.Y lamb stool tutorial below.
Lindsey Adelman is the hottest lighting designer right now. She creates fixtures that are works of art. If you hang one of her chandeliers the room need almost nothing else. Obviously, these masterpieces come with a high price tag. That is why I flipped when I saw this D.I.Y to make a Lindsey Adelman fixture of your very own. See the full tutorial HERE.
We had our server go down yesterday, so this post comes to you a little late. I must say it was nice to unplug myself for the day and made me realize I need to try that more often. Happy weekend all! Here are 5 things you can try.

The power of adding a SMEG refrigerator in your Kitchen is amazing. It has the same impact as an architectural detail. It takes a kitchen from nice to whoa! I would love to add one to my kitchen…I just don’t know if I could ever decide on a color…something minty perhaps.
I am in love with chairs and bassinets that hang from the ceiling. Only the ones that are “el natural” in rattan, bamboo or rope. I just think they are fun and sooooothing in a space. I mean when your swinging your feeling good right?! When a baby or child is swinging they are in good spirits or better yet sound a sleep. It’s my new product love and I think I need one.
I can’t wait until my daughter is old enough for chapter books. Well…I guess she needs to learn how to read first and speak. I get excited when she remembers a few words out of the board books we read every day. I’m all like….get the video camera she finished the sentence by saying nose and toes! I have always had my eye on the beautiful Penguin Classics …they had me at well accessorized shelf. Anthropologie has a new collection of them available in all the greats. Not only are they good reads, but they are beautiful on the shelf…did I mention that. What a special gift to give a child or friend who loves to curl up with a good old fashioned book.
