Ok it’s not exactly like the picture in the previous post but it’s close enough to make me very happy.

Read & Roll

I just saw this picture over at Plastolux and I’ve now I’m obsessively searching for a Toilet Paper Holder and Magazine Rack just like this! No luck yet….

Love this Bath Life Shelf and Towel Bar at DWR …. and it’s 50% off…which would be nice if it hadn’t been so much to begin with.

DIY Wine Wrap

December 17, 2009

I love this DIY wine wrap over at Grey Likes Weddings

I need to hit up the thrift store and buy some sweaters…..

I’ve been getting my Christmas decorations out and decided I don’t like the majority of it.

So I’m longingly eyeing up this wreath by David Stark for West Elm.

Paul Koh Toggle Key Switch

December 8, 2009

I had seen these light switch plates awhile ago but I don’t believe they were actually on sale then. Now Bobby Berk Home is selling them.

However, every light switch near an entry in my house has more than one switch. Hopefully they come out with a multi one soon.

Lighthouse Ball

December 1, 2009

The Lighthouse Ball is available as a tea light holder or outdoor oil lamp, in glossy black or white porcelain.

I really like these… yet when I look at the outdoor oil lamp I want it to be really large, like at least 24″ round for use as a modern fire pit. oh well.

The Stainless Steel Letter Mailbox at Lushpad is a “sleek and graphic mailbox, handcrafted out of marine grade stainless steel for a clean modern look, and tough to weather the elements. Featuring a real full-length piano-style hinge. The segments are welded together, and then the edges are hand-buffed.”

I don’t usually like many kitchen appliances enough to put them on this site, but the hand mixer by Philips is an exception.

Glass Markers Party People

November 6, 2009

Everyone’s seen the little jewelry for the bottom of their wine glasses…but I’m liking these Glass Markers better. They can go on any glass, instead of only ones with stems, and they are a bit more ‘manly’ then the jewelry.

A Drop of Water

November 4, 2009

Here’s a different take on the rain barrel…it looks a little like a pregnant belly but still better looking than a big plain barrel.

‘A Drop of Water’ is a rain barrel that makes saving water really easy by providing a watering can that is automatically filled when it rains. This way, the user doesn’t have to fill the can with our precious tap water, but uses ‘free’ rainwater instead to water the garden.

Snapalarm by Michael Olsson and Rickard Grönstedt is clicked into place, with no need for tools, on the cord of a pendant lamp, rod or chain. Snapalarm recieved the international red dot design award in 2005.

Kitchen Scrubbing Cloth

September 3, 2009

The Kitchen Scrubbing Cloth by Hiroki Hayashi is a “natural abrasives in these scrubbing cloths make for a resiliant kitchen utility. No detergent is needed for use, though a tiny dab of soap can be applied for the greasiest of dishes. The scrubbing cloth can be used for several months, gets curlier and softer with use and resists odor and bacteria.

The yellow coarse scrub is made from recycled corn cobs while the red gentle scrub is made from peach pits.”

The Strut Credenza by Crate and Barrel is crafted of shesham wood with a matte walnut stain, an adjustable and removable shelf, a storage drawer and letter-legal file drawer.

I hate when I see something I’d like to buy and it’s only a concept design

Ecosystems BADA

August 13, 2009

Most people want to upsize their house…I want to downsize mine… and when I do I’d love to have the BADA table that converts into a loveseat, by Ecosystems

July 28, 2009

Available from MOMA, this sugar dispenser is ‘made of double-walled glass, and has a wide hole in the top for pouring and a hole with a rubber stopper in the bottom for refilling. Made by Alessi.’

Woolly Pocket Garden

June 25, 2009

Overlooking the odd hipster-y naked people on the website, I really like these Woolly Pocket hanging gardens, which come in all sizes.

 I actually have a thing right now for vertical gardens. I recently read an interesting blog where she talks about a vertical vegatable garden installed on the side of a food bank building in LA.

Paper Pot

June 16, 2009

Many products try to dress up tissues but this is by far my favorite! The Paper Pot from Japan is designed to be used for both toilet paper and tissue paper.

Design*Sponge trivet

June 11, 2009

I really liked this cute trivet that I saw over at Design*Sponge. They have a tutorial if you follow the link. It seems simple enough…not that I’ll ever get around to it.

Tota Coffee Carrier

May 29, 2009

Awhile ago I posted about a drink carrier but it was full of links that took me to sites in other languages. Then while looking at BetterLivingThroughDesign today I saw that there is a similiar version for sale at Ponoko.

LOVE this bracelet
