Just for fun, I did a little virtual merchandizing, grouping items into vignettes that suggest (but do not necessarily function as) spaces for the home.
How about an entryway or two?
What about a fun and bright game table for two. Or is it a kitchen dining nook? Who knows what that screen could be hiding.
How about a full-fledged dining room?
Loving all the variations on a sunburst or crosshatch pattern there. (On the chairs, too, though it's tough to see here.)
A brand new living room, perhaps?
Particularly loving that slipcovered ottoman--very John Robshaw, but from Crate and Barrel.
Well. It was fun to pull favorites from the new catalogs and to see the ongoing trends. Mid-century modern, kilims, bird art, chartreuse, bright/saturated colors, wood as a material (rattan, bentwood, etc), and strong graphic patterns are still popping up everywhere. I love many of these trends, so it works for me.
Any new items you are lusting after these days?
