Every few months, I pop into Crate and Barrel to see what’s new for clients. It’s a good place to find accessories to up your home’s style. Sometimes, I get enticed to purchase something for us whether it’s something we need like cereal bowls or a splurge like a candle. Here are some casually modern things making me smile right now.
Up Your Home’s Style
A Bowl As A Centerpiece
This $20 Japanese flower style bowl sparks joy on my table and encourages me to eat fruit as a snack.
These fern branches on my client’s new mantel bring in color. I have them on my mantel, too.
Leanne Ford Candle
So when the girls were here for the Design Influencers Conference…we took a break and headed over to Crate and Barrel to check out the Leanne Ford new collection. Love the hand-made “sculptural look” of the ceramics and her textured baskets.
Some other things that caught my eye…
Small Metal Shelves
These metal shelves would look great above a toilet!
Rustic Wooden Mirror
I can’t stop thinking about how cool this mirror is…
Lava and Stone Bookends
These bookends would make a great gift…
Wire Candle Holders As Utensil Holders
Kim bought these while we were there and look how she is using them…
in her new kitchen.
Kim wrote more about her Crate and Barrel favorites here.
Square Versatile Dinner Bowls
Speaking of favorites, Howard and I bought these square bowls recently and we use them all the time! I have oatmeal or yogurt and fruit for breakfast in them… and we use them for dinner salads and soup. I like how they are a little deeper and there is some portion control. $37 for a set of eight.
Back Home With My New Candle
And here’s the cool Leanne Ford candle. It will probably end up on the coffee table (there is one there now that’s almost used up). See anything you like to Up Your Home’s Style?
Have a wonderful week! Come back on Thursday for Project Design: Spring Fashion with some great real people fashion.
