Weekend Show and Tell

29 Apr

Happy Sunday everyone!  I woke up sore this morning from shoveling dirt and spending money (more on that tomorrow) so I am happily ensconced in bed doing nothing until I have to go shovel more dirt.  It will be worth it, you’ll see.  In the meantime, have some very cool things to share with you.  Enjoy!

I love the look of this DIY wood pallet wall.  It’s both modern and rustic at the same time and creates a wonderful warm effect. (Via 2Modern)

There is seriously not enough wall space in our house for me to hang all the family photos and art work that I fall in love with.  The latest from Jenn Ski are lovely, perfectly MCM and totally affordable.  At $35 for a giclee print, you can’t help but pick up two.  Very atomic.  Love the newsprint and wood texture.

Apartment Therapy is having their annual Small Cool contest, for the smallest coolest home design.  My current favorite is Tess’s 450 sq ft apartment in Brooklyn.  Marimekko print, Noguchi coffee table, Eames coat rack…just clean and lovely.  I even spotted an owl in there!  Go vote now!

In the category of ‘Sweet Jesus that is gorgeous…’ is the Casa Almare in Puerto Vallerta.  What a view.  What a gorgeous use of wood.  What an amazing driftwood tree trunk in the middle of the room.  Want.  (Via Pursuitist)

My latest obsession for our outdoor living this summer is the butterfly chair.  My grandparents had two red ones on their patio (which also had a sundial, go figure) and I want two to put on the patio outside our bedroom.  I like this one from Circa 50, made to the specifications of the original BFK for $318.

There is also a less expensive option at CB2 for $59.99.  Either way, it’s got to be orange!
