Well, I haven't had internet in what feels like forever, but I'm on the ferry between Tsawassen and Swartz Bay, on my way to Victoria so that means I have some spotty internet! Yay!
When I last had internet I spent my time perusing ARTERIORS from activemerchandiser.com . I went through all of their PDFs and picked out my favourites.
Quite often I find things I love BUT could or would not ever incorporate into my home. Almost all of the pictures below fall under these categories.
|Super cool. Not totally in love with the shade but shades aren't hard to change. But look at the craftsmanship in that flower! Gorgeous!|
|I recall my stepmother has something like this. And I have to say, that woman knows style. This, like hers, is fantastic in a walk-in closet.|
|I'm going to make these. Maybe. No, no I won't because the moment I go to do it I'll remember that the knit will get dirty. I would however absolutely use this as a cozy for old cans and tins of coffee that I use to hold stray pens and pencils.|
|I like the horns but I think they're made of glass. I'd much rather have a real one. Where to put it? who know.|
Ya, I love agates. I would use them as paperweights or bookends.
|I don't really want any of these in my home but they are neat. I just love round tables. They just feel homier.|
|Neat, but I don't like them for me. I love wardrobes - they are great for everything from storage, hiding televisions and computers away to holding clothing and linen. I really enjoy that they are textured. That, and the deep rich colour.|
|Not sure I want one of these. Maybe in a guest bedroom? They're cozy, not overly stylish, and they look well made. What do you guys think?|
|Very cool. But where would this go?|
|I really like these especially the top right lamp. I would probably use it in my dream "Moroccan room."|
|I stayed with my stepmother for a few months during my first year of college and I remember her glasses. They were a lovely rounded collum set of glasses with lovely little air bubbles throughout the glass.|
|Really not sure why I like the one on the left so much. I don't think I'd ever use it but I still feel nice when I look at it.|
|I LOVE ocean life based lamps. I just do. The one on the right reminds me of a long jellyfish. On my next update I'll be sure to add my favourite lamps.|
|Gorgeous again. but again, where?|
|These are just neat but I'd have a hard time incorporating them without making the room feel more full than I want it to feel.|
|This one I would use, maybe with a shorter shade, if I could find a place for it.|
|these are neat.|
|You know me and ocean lamps. I like the top left|
|These I would buy. Where I would put them, I have no idea but that wouldn't stop me from buying them.|
|mmmm steampunk-sh lamps. I will own these. My favourite are the accordion lamps.|
|weird but cool. kids room?|
|oooo. I like the flower one but I kind of wish it were a torch. :(|
|That's right! I love mirrors. Especially rounded ones. I feel like they're very useful for pulling together a room and creating a focus. Love them.|
