Kate Spade for Bed, Bath & Beyond

Kate Spade has quite an extensive collection going on over at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Have you seen it? One of their newest editions is this About Town shower curtain and bath accessories, which could be a super cute and really affordable bathroom makeover for spring. I would have really been into this stuff when I was 22 years old settling into my first Boston apartment – fun!

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Hello friends, bloggers, internet! How are you today? Are you doing good. I thought I’d round up five lovely shops for you from Etsy that I’ve had my eye on lately so let’s get started and check out some cool handmade stuff!

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

No stranger to this blog, the beautiful handmade jewelry from Nest Pretty Things is always a favorite. I want to order so many things from this shop!

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

A featured shop currently on Etsy, I just love the botanical home care products by Kayce White at Haven. I wish these were available in Germany!

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

Lena Hanzel from Room for Emptiness in Berlin makes handprinted textiles, paper products and hand paints both vintage and new tableware. Really nice graphic feel.

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

Trixi Angermüller is Frau Sieben, who makes mostly wooden necklaces and candle holders in Hamburg, Germany with a very clean, modern Danish vibe.

If you love rubber stamps but not that into the ones you see in most craft stores, you may like the nature-inspired minimalist approach to stamping that Karmelo in Cologne, Germany takes to her designs. Really nice! My favorite is the cloud bordure, which one do you like?

Any etsy shops you’d love to tell me about? Share your own or the shop of someone you love in the comments section below to be considered in future columns.

Pimp Your IKEA: Superfront

If you want to pimp out your IKEA cabinets, Superfront is definitely THE place to get started. Superfront gives you the ability to create high quality furniture using an IKEA base combined with their collection of 9 fronts, 8 handles, 8 legs — all in 12 different colours. They make their parts for existing IKEA cabinet bases so if you want to freshen up your existing IKEA kitchen, sideboard or bathroom cabinet now you can! These products are not mass-produced in some faraway land – they are made right in Småland and Dalarna, Sweden. I love the leather handles and the fun legs – this is GREAT.

I first spotted this on the German blog, raumfeurzwei. What do you think, would you use Superfront? I totally would!

Magical Bohemian Style Loft in Madrid

I came across a stunner of a bohemian-style loft today in Spain and couldn’t peel myself away from examining the many details. This place is in Madrid and is totally unreal – so imaginative, I’ve never seen anything like it. And it’s very neutral and industrial with loads of vintage elements, wow! It’s the space of interiors photographer Manolo Yllera and doubles as his light studio. Interesting, right!?

I found this on an equally creative Spanish blog called Virlova Style.What do you think? Spot any details you’d like to try at home? I love the wooden white screen above with the handpainted blossoms – great idea for a room divider.

I also love all of his Berber carpets from Morocco – those Beni Ouarain rugs have been showing up everywhere in the most stylish homes – have you noticed the Beni Ouarain trend too? I noticed it back in 2011 but wow, it’s grown to be quite a hit ever since.
