Show Your Visitors Some Love

You’re not a lonely shut-in desperate for company. No, you are not! But on the off chance that you are a little lonely, no need to beg your visitor to stay for another viewing of “Harold and Maude.” Just throw down this “Please Don’t Leave” rug as a subtle reminder that your guest is welcome to stay for as long as they want. Or forever. [$19, Urban Outfitters]

Because I’m a jealous and petty person, I can’t stand to read lifestyle/home/craft blogs. Who are these people with endless amounts of free time, money and craft experience who seem to effortlessly turn their homes into the back page of a Martha Stewart magazine? They obviously don’t have cats. And because I’m jealous and petty, and not going to subscribe to Folk Magazine anytime soon (though they keep threatening me with a subscription), I need shortcuts to elevate me from sloth to semi-functioning, well-designed person.

Which is why we’ve collected a bunch of easy, really easy, tips to help make your house one others can be jealous of. Keep reading »

If you’re anything like me, you need a jolt to get you through the morning. Usually I favor caffeine but this mug with a hippo at the bottom will work, too. I can totally see myself sucking down a cup of joe and shrieking, “Oh my God, there’s a hippo in my coffee!” (There’s also an octopus mug if you favor deep sea beasts.) Try not to spill on yourself and enjoy. [$10.95, Neatoshop]

A Coffee Mug That Wakes Up With You

I may have mentioned (more than once) that my first cup of coffee is the only thing that can get me out of bed in the morning. Add a cute mug to the mix and I’m practically jumping out of bed when my alarm goes off. Well, maybe not. But this Morning Mug will be the extra incentive I need to get going. When it’s cold, the mug displays a sleepy face. As you warms it with the heat of your coffee and you start to warm up to the day, so does its face. What a brilliant way to begin your morning. Just you and your mug waking up together.

H&M Isn’t Just For Clothes Anymore

I have great and not-so-great design news. First, the good news:

H&M is finally going the way of their Netherlands-neighbors, IKEA, and rolling out its home line in stores across Europe. H&M zeroed in on three separate color palettes: neutral, nautical (blues and reds with white) and neon/candy striped.

Personally, I’m all about the nautical (have I mentioned the 11 striped shirts and dresses I own? Yes, really.), so sign me up for some of those perfectly-striped navy bed linens!

But don’t get too excited about decking your place out H&M-style, because here’s the bad news: the H&M home decor line has yet to make it over to this side of the pond. But it’s coming, promise! In the meantime, race you to eBay… [WSJ] Keep reading »
