Chocosho

Who hasn’t dreamt of grabbing a guitar and strummin’ away on stage before a crowd of people, singing your foolish heart out? Swollen lyrics stimulating a crowd of thousands. Everyone relating to your words of love gone amazingly wrong. Wearing really cool jeans that make your butt look good with a rockin’ t-shirt.

Real life scenario? Dancing around your living room, singing your favorite Jewel song into a hair brush with kiwi your cat looking on, so bored that he resorts to cleaning his paws. Bubble burst. Oh well, despite your lack of stage, talent, and adoring fans, you can still look cute during your home kareoke moments with a lavish rocker girl t-shirt with organic flair from Little By Jenny. Chocosho sells many of her designs on their website, all of which I just love.

I try to stick to home design, but Jenny’s nature inspired graphics with an industrial edge really flick my switch. I found them online at Chocosho, along with this adorable calendar by nicole g , and this quirky little smoggy mountain cardboard atomic bonzai kit ($22), perfect for those without a green thumb.

Tradewinds

Festive! Fun bowls and serving platters from Tradewinds, modern with a twist of whimsy. It’s hard to envision summer, but these bright and cheery platters will inspire images of warm summer nights spent sipping a raspberry margarita, afterdark madrid filling the air, entertaining friends with your latest tapas recipe. Fiesta!

I love the colors and textures of these bright pieces; but the mixed black ones are nice too. They’re quite classic meets whimsical charm – they remind me of a naughty secretary or something. When you’re not entertaining, you can display them – double duty!

The platters, not the secretary.

HANNSpree


I simply can’t get enough of the HANNSspree line of electronics. Hard to believe that I said “can’t get enough” and “electronics” in the same sentence. My husband would be so proud. These cuties look like a new breed of Macs or something; I did a double take when I first spotted one. HANNSpree has dozens of styles to fit the mood of you room, including TVs for kids, remote contols, and speaker systems. Finally, a TV that doesn’t need to hide in a monster size cabinet, concealed by doors, unattractive and alone.
