This week I thought I would bring you a Tumblr Thursday geared toward stylized home decor. What ever you personal style may be, we can always use a little inspiration to make our place even more unique. I am always asked what my personal style is, and well, I can’t live without color, and lots of it. I love mixing traditional ideas and pieces with very modern and bold colors (my current fav is teal and orange!), as well as keeping things light and airy with a lot of whites. So please, take in the color and ideas and enjoy!

Ok, so the holidays are coming up, and the economy is starting to pick up again, but lets face it, not fast enough. So, for today, I present to you a collection of items that can spruce up your place or make for some great gifts, all on sale. That’s right, every single item below is on sale! Granted some sales are better then others, but a sale is a sale! So please peruse the goods and save some money! Click each number under the images to get to the sales.
It has been a while since I have rounded up a collection of clocks, and this morning, I have all kinds of different styles, colors and price ranges. As you know, I love clocks. Even the ones that you have to stare at for a few minutes to figure out the time. Oh how I wish I had tons of cash to expand my little collection!
These two are perfect as a tabletop accessory, or next to a bed. Left, the Innermost Mantel Dome Clock, 6″ W x 8.5″H, comes in black or white. And I am simply loving the Twice Twice Clock! It will work for the table or can be hung and is 13″ x 8″ x 1″. And as an extra bonus, this clock has dials on both sides that can display two different time settings!
Always a fan of adding color to walls, I am loving these two from H is for Home. Unfortunatly these don’t come with fun names, on the left, vintage wall clock made from Weimar quartz in East Germany in the 1970s! I am just loving the red white and blue. Right, another vintage wall clock produced from Metamec in the 1960s. I am getting more and more into orange… just got my very first bright orange accessory for the house!
Perhaps your are looking for a clock that is a little more subtle, how about these beauties from Chiasso? I have always liked the look of flower inspired clocks and mirrors, and this one is just mesmerizing. Left, the Orbit Clock, designed as a modern take on a sunflower and is a whopping 29.5″ in diameter! Left, the Cosmic Clock. I love the look of metal on wood and it totally reminds me of something you would see on the set of Mad Men… anyone else excited for the new season??
A little more on the quirky side, but I am loving this Pop Quiz Math Clock. Oddly enough, I am one of those people who has never liked math, but throw it on a clock and Im all interested! Perfect for youngsters who are learning. This last one may not be quirky, but its really is nice to look at. I am picturing this in an all white room… lovely! The Firenze Wall Clock was originally designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1965 and is now available from Alessi, Italy.
Its Monday, and boy am I having a heard time getting going! I’ll just blame it on the lack of sunshine and the drilling and sawing in my front porch that has been going on for weeks. Although I am super excited to finally have a fenced in front porch! Anyway, back to the blog. I took a virtual spin over at West Elm, and if you haven’t checked out their site lately, do stop by. They are having tons of summer sales and are introducing many new products. A few from their site that not only caught my eye but are pretty nice to the wallet as well.
First up are these cute little animal figurines. Perhaps its my lack of pet these days, but I am loving little additions like these for shelves and little nooks. The Sheesham Birds are made from well, sheesham and come in two sizes, perfect for little additions in any room. The Narrative Animals are a little more animal like in shape but have a touch of irony. White figures with funny decals really make the look, available are a rabbit and top hat, a squirrel and nut and a tortoise with a hare.
Moving over to all things glass, I am loving these Gourd Table Lamps and Hurricane Lanterns. Perfect for tabletops, these will be sure to add some shine and light to any room. The gourd lamps come in either a clear of charcoal tint and come with a natural linen shade. The hurricane lanterns are a perfect accessory for an outdoor table or casual dinners inside. Made from glass and iron, these are a delicate yet sturdy addition.
One of the most common questions I get asked is how to make a big impact on a small budget for bedrooms. I am a fond believer that a headboard can make or break a room, and I am loving these two for modern rooms. On the left, a Metal-Inlay headboard and the right is the Random Cutout headboard. Each would give your room a new focal point and a place to rest all those pillows against!
I must be in the mood for a shopping spree, I stopped on over at Urban Outfitters to see what’s new, and if you haven’t been to the site lately, you need to seriously consider it! There are tons of great odds and ends and some fun and colorful bedding new in stock. A few things that I would grab up in a heart beat…
First up is the brightly colored 30″ Circle Bird Rug. The size is just right to add a little color without going over the top, and it fits a nice budget at only $18! The Fiance and I have been in search of decanters that blend that traditional look with a twist of modern and this Glass Decanter is exactly what I have been picturing. Now that summer is here and the weather is slowly getting warmer, this Industrial Fan is just too cute, and perfect for a tabletop at only 10″ tall.
Now, I don’t have an iPhone, but if I did, I might consider theses Artist Series iPhone Skins. The skins fit a 3G phone and come in several different designs, each done by a different artist. Adds a little something to that thing we all carry around with us everyday.
And now onto tabletop accessories! I am loving all of the bold graphic plates and bowls, particularly the Graphic Plate Series 8, the Graphic Bowls Series 7 (someone needs to work on some names!) and I those Boulder Mugs make me want to curl up with a good book.
Its Friday, and boy am I ready for the weekend! I thought I would take a quick look over at Velocity and CB2 to see what is new in stock, and found a large amount of glass objects for your home. There is something about these clear little pieces that make me want them all!
When I was little, my Mom kept a huge porcelain piggy bank in her closet and every time my brother and I saved up some coins and the hard to come by “paper money” as we liked to call it, we dropped it in the bank. I am loving the Glass Piggy Bank by Roost, made from borosilicate glass, these could be the perfect solution for a more modern kids room, or you know, in my bookcase! Lately, I have been seeing more and more terrariums becoming popular, no doubt due to its insane cuteness and who doesn’t love a living plant in their room? These Recycled Glass Bubble Terrariums are hand crafted without a mold so no two look exactly alike. The organic shapes are perfect as a small centerpiece for a tabletop or shelf.
These Palette Bowls are perfect for summer entertaining! I am loving the pop of orange and yellow… I can just picture a pile of green apples sitting in these. My motto, you can never have too many vases, and these Noir Vases are nice enough to look at even without flowers! They may not be made from glass, but I couldn’t help myself! Made from matte black iron and polished nickel on the inside, these will sure turn some heads. Last but not least, these Glass Canisters are perfect for keeping your bathroom and small objects nice and tidy! If only I had seen these when I was in need of some jars!
