Fab July

Fab for July

I’m working with Fab again to share my favorite quirky finds from the shop. Clearly I was feeling the geometric designs this time around! I found some classics I was already familiar with, along with a few new-to-me discoveries by independent designers. Below are my picks, but you can also sign up for Fab’s email newsletter to keep up with their newest design sales.

  1. Rhino Box
    It will “guard your tiny treasures.” Need I say more?

  2. Strut Table
    I want to design a dining room around this table.

  3. Bundle Side Table
    Nice legs.

  4. Napkin Stand
    What is this? And why do I even want one? Don’t know, but it’s cute.

  5. Crane Light
    Simple, and good-looking.

  6. Be Kind to Books Print
    A good reminder (and subtle admonishment) for little ones.

  7. White Coconut Pendant
    Classic design. Good lighting always elevates everything else in the room.

  8. Triangle Eco Throw
    Zigzags are on the outs, but I still like triangles.

  9. Blue Tablo Table
    Such a playful table! Could be a great coffee table to balance out more serious furniture.

  10. Infinity Kitty Print
    Meow, meow, meow, meow…

  11. Cant Desk
    A small desk with big style.

  12. Hex Copper Bowl
    I think copper is the next metal to have a surge in popularity. Watch your back, brass.

p.s. Fab has a pop-up Kate Spade Saturday sale starting tonight!

Fab March Guide

Fab always has fun finds from big design names along with independent designers, so I like working with them to highlight some of my favorites. Here’s what I’ve got my eye on right now.

  1. Ciao Travel Tags
    All the easier to spot your luggage by.

  2. Decorative Ampersand
    Because I have a thing for decorative ampersands.

  3. Walnut and Leather Wall Shelves
    These are gorgeous. Pricey, but gorgeous.

  4. Lilac Pantone Business Card Holder
    I may pick this one up to hold a few of my pink and gold business cards.

  5. Hello Foil Card Set
    Rifle Paper can pretty much do no wrong.

  6. Red Medicine Cabinet
    I have this in white, in my basement bathroom.

  7. Flower in a Can: Impatiens
    The cute container will decorate a sunny spot while you wait for the flowers to bloom.

  8. Gold Stripe Thank You Cards
    Simple and pretty, and the shiny gold makes them special.

  9. Mother and Child Tray
    I’ve always liked the illustrations on these Vitra trays.

  10. Lilac Pantone Mug
    Hot chocolate would be extra nice in this mug, and it would be cute as a vase, too.

  11. Pinch and Pair Set
    Four little containers that can store and stack.

  12. Amazing Pink Tea Towel
    Why not treat the care details as a design element?

Blue and Green Kitchen

I found this image on my hard drive that I had saved in 2009. Oh, the era before Pinterest! Oh, the folders upon folders of “Some Things I Like!” Oh, the inability to track down where I had gotten the image from.

I don’t like to share unsourced images, so I set to tracking this one down. I finally found it (Remodelista credits the kitchen to a Parisian architect, Phillippe Harden), and was rewarded with additional photos of the space.

I’ve got to get cracking on those curtains in the kitchen so I could play around with the palette in Photoshop. I don’t know that I want to go this colorful, but… maybe I kind of do now? I have to give it some thought.
