So while this is primarily a fashion and photography blog, I have a dirty little secret (maybe not so dirty), I'm obsessed with interior design. It all started when I stumbled upon this channel HGTV (some of you may have heard of it). Well, it's safe to say I was hooked after 10 minutes. My roommates make fun of me because I watch it that often. It's even DVR'd. Yes, my obsession has come to the point where I have to record House Hunters and I'm genuinely disappointed when there aren't any new episodes. With that said, I love finding awesome things for the home so for this Ten Things Tuesday, I decided to round up a few of my favorite etsy/ikea finds.
1. Chalkboard for the Kitchen
This is going to be really weird but when I was younger (aka really in high school), I loved it when I was able to write something on the chalkboard. I really don't know what it is about chalkboards but I love them and I love the idea of hanging one in a kitchen letting everyone know what's for dinner or leaving a note for someone. When I saw this lovely one on Etsy, I literally ooh'd and aaah'd.
How cute is this ottoman?! Unfortunately it doesn't open up to store stuff, but it was so cute I could not resist posting about it. :)
3. Wooden Blocks
I love how quirky these wooden blocks are. I could see them looking perfect on my bookshelf.
What else is there to say? Keep calm and carry chocolate. Everyone should abide by that rule.
5. Living Room Storage
I love the shape of this bookcase/storage system. Two of these on either side of a TV would look perfect in any living room.
6. Room Divider
I know you've all seen the scene in a movie where a girl is usually talking to someone else on the other side of the divider (usually a guy) and she's undressing and you only see her shadow and the guy really likes her so you can read his nervousness on his face, etc. No? Just me? Well, that is what this room divider reminded me of. It looks so pretty and would be perfect for dividing a bedroom area in a studio from the rest of the space.
7. Organizers for Drawers
It's green and it organizes stuff aka I love it.
I love that it's such a simple nightstand but looks like it has tons of storage. Best part is, you can clutter up the nightstand because no one will have to know what's in there.
9. Kitchen Cart
City apartments usually have small everything and that means limited counter space in kitchens. With a kitchen cart, not only does it add some counter space, but it also doubles it as storage. And, you can also roll it around if you need to. I would say a win, win, win.
This isn't much a chandelier as it is a candelabra but I love how elegant it looks. It could warm up any room.
I want to buy all of these things. I might have to start with the drawer organizer and the chandelier, which one(s) is your favorite(s)? :) Happy Tuesday!
Also, a much needed prayer goes out to Japan. May those affected find some peace in a terrible, catastrophic time. I read on Oh Hello Friend that there will be a blogger's day of silence for Japan on Friday March 18 so I will not be posting on Friday and I hope you'll join me for this day of silence as well.
