Why Don’t You…?

… ditch your outdated nightstand in lieu of something simple, accessible and [more than likely!] hanging out in another room of your house?

Yes, an everyday chair can act as an impromptu – or forever! – nightstand. Why not grab a spare from your dining room table in lieu of the bulky nightstand that might currently be cramping your bedroom’s style?

The look screams function, but is also stylish at the same time. Would you ever give it a go? Is the look too cluttered for your taste, or just the right amount of surprise?

… turn your headboard into a ceiling canopy?

Sure, we’ve all seen reclaimed wood headboards, but have you ever seen one quite like this? By adding a few more strategically placed planks, this homeowner created an instant conversation piece and upped the cozy factor in one fell swoop. Better yet? The reclaimed wood canopy offers a hiding place for any electrical wires necessary for those sweet little symmetrical chandeliers.

What do you think? Too much wood, or just enough wow?

Product of the Week: The Rocking Bed

You’re flabbergasted, aren’t you? Me, too. I can’t quite speak to its functionality, but I will say that this rocking bed design is out-of-this-world beautiful.

Designed by Shiner International’s Joe Manus, the bed can be cemented in place with rubber stops, or left to rock the night away. Available as an indoor/outdoor piece, I can only imagine what a statement it would make in any space.

Of course, this unique piece will set you back a pretty penny: $3,000 to be exact. A small price to pay for mobile dreaming, yes?

Inspiration Only: Vignette

Inspiration can be found in the most unexpected places, as was the case when I stumbled upon a storefront that was styled in the most genius manner:

Post 27 recently hosted a gallery event in their retail space entitled Vignette. The result? Dazzling vintage ephemera and classic furnishings paired together in a swoon-worthy combo.

My favorite look is the above image featuring clipboard wall art, quirky typography and a fall-inspired color palette.

Ahhhh, this will be one for the tear sheets indeed.

Why Don’t You…?

Sometimes all it takes is a subtle, inexpensive alteration to make a room come alive. Take this space, for example:

You see it, don’t you? A giant ball of thick yarn hanging from an otherwise-overlooked chandelier creates just the right amount of drama and movement to make you look twice. I can almost guarantee you have something hangable in your own home that will cost zero bucks for a massive impact.

Why not give it a go?
