After the Zara Home images (a heavy dose of white overload), and now seeing tons of snow falling outside of my window (it’s April, hellloo?), I needed a jolt of color to cheer me up. Color and pattern in bold, geometric prints is what our girl Heidi is all about. She has some stylish papers and cards; I’d love to blow up some of these patterns and paste them on a wall, what swank wallpaper some of these would make. Fresh!

Is this thing hot or hairy scary? Resembling a Muppet and badly in need of google eyes, only 50 are available over at Design Within Reach, so if you want your eco-friendly Miss Gana ottoman made from unworn, overstocked flip-flop sandals for $250- act now before it rolls away… Or walks. Or ends up with an acting career on some Nickelodeon show.
Hot or Scary? Would you own this thing? I cast my vote like this… If it was in one of those massive, swank Elle Decor style homes with all the right billion dollar furnishings, it would work. If it was in my home, just plain scary. And you?

This is such a cool eBay find from seller Mod Avenue (one of my faves), and I think with the right knobs, it would make a great accent piece. I just love the price– Buy It Now for $300 and it ships to your home straight out of Brooklyn. I love it because I had an entire bedroom set just like this growing up, only it had cane trim and was white.
If yellow isn’t for you, paint it your favorite color, it has such great lines and detail, and you can find knobs over at Anthropologie to dress it up to look totally girly, grown, ornate, tame, whatever you like – hardware can transform this piece into something unique just like you. Paint it in a few colors, outlining the details. Line the drawers with your favorite vintage wallpaper. Use it in the entry to store paperwork, bills, scarves, mittens, keys… Or in the more common places, like a walk-in closet, bedroom, living room, etc. It’s so much fun to find pieces like this on eBay, such a great bargain and so much potential to perk it up and have fun.
