interior love list

  1. Bar carts: because who doesn’t love their entire alcohol selection available on wheels? Wheel it into entertaining areas and start mixing up the magic, or park it in the corner and jazz it up for a good looking display piece. For a more sophisticated bar cart look, sass it up with fresh flowers in a pretty vase, or small plate filled with limes, grapefruits, and oranges. You can even stack a few cocktail books (one of my favorites, seen below) and use them as a pedestel to display your glasses on.   [safavieh bar cart, pictured above]

  1. copper accents: I always love the perfect pop of metallic, so why not add some copper to the mix. Copper adds a more industrial feel, paired alongside wood and iron. It’s finding its way into a variety of kitchen items: hammered copper cups and mugs, cutlery sets, bowls, colanders, cooking spoons, as well as a variety of geometric light fixtures and vases. Copper is also becoming a hot commodity in the wedding scene, often utilized at table settings (think: rich shades of purple, seen in napkins and flowers, alongside soft copper napkin rings and votives).  [Agnes copper stool table above, from Keeki Australia]
  1. Terrariums: this is an obvious choice for me…I adore fresh flowers, I would put them in every room if I had money to blow. But then they die. So bring in a terrarium for that fresh green pop to a room, and just let it hang out. So low maintenance, and they give your space a clean, bright finish. Do-it yourself terrarium kits are available readily. (You can google terrarium DIY just as easily and get the supplies at Michaels or Hobby Lobby for half the price).  [Cube Terrarium holder above from West Elm]
  1. funky mirrors: a great way to add shape, texture, and color to a space. A funky mirror can double as a unique piece of wall art in a room [Avasa Scalloped Mirror, above, from World Market]

5. Moroccan tiles: great accent in a kitchen or bathroom! the beautiful shapes, patterns, and colors liven up any room. Being that you may not be in the market for a tile update, do what I love to do with a few pieces of Moroccan tiles: use them as coasters. Order a couple of tiles online, or in store, and set them around your living or bedroom areas a lively addition. [Moroccan tiles, above]


6. catch-all dishes: perfect little stylish additions to a bathroom counter top, side table, or dresser top to hold all of those random do-dads that might otherwise end up in the vacuum cleaner (random stud earrings and toe rings, I’m talking to you). Practical and pretty. [Wooden Hexagon catch all dish, above]

7. cowhide: best for last? I’ve always loved cowhide rugs, but the recent addition of metallic splatters and streaks to cowhide finishes has created a entirely new trendy look.  Cowhide is also getting a face-lift through the use of geometric shapes and lines.   And cowhide isn’t just confined to the traditional rug-check out cowhide coasters, poufs, pillows, place mats, purses…[above pouf from West Elm]
