I flew home to Kansas City before the massive snow storm hit DC last week. I ended up getting stuck there as flights were cancelled. So when I finally got home on Tuesday I was just emotionally exhausted. I even took a nap! Which I NEVER do. So this week has been all about catching up and attempting to get back into my routine, however it’s been hard to do that since the snow has made parking in the city near impossible. Lots of secondary streets, and even some main ones are still down to one lane, making traffic more of a nightmare than it already is. Basically I’m glad it’s Friday, and I’m glad that this weekend is going to be in the 40s and 50s, so hopefully all this dirty snow will melt!
Now for a few home items that are On My Radar:
Love this untitled face painting from Sally King Benedict’s face series.
Nate Berkus is always cooking up something for Target. Love this fringe stool.
I rarely use an alarm clock, but when I do I use my phone. My husband uses the one I had in college. It’s the most generic plastic thing ever. I’ve always been on the lookout for something more chic, and I found it in this cube clock from MOMA.
The bar cart trend is not over! Because who doesn’t love a nightcap?
These teacups are a part of CB2’s Design Collab. They asked 12 students in the Designed Objects curriculum at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), “What does ‘live well’ mean in the context of home design?” Channeling the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, student Louis Kishfy wanted to take the idea of drinking to to a new level with these handmade teacups represent “a spiritual experience that embodies harmony, respect, purity and tranquility.” Designed to be authentically Japanese, handmade rounds are partially glazed colbalt, white or light blue with earthy flecks of brown, stopping just short of the base to expose the rich tone of natural clay. No two are exactly alike.
