An all purpose throw is a design essential, and when chosen in the right fabric and color, can be used year-round. This vibrant pink herringbone blanket is the perfect weight for all season use, and the dual pink tones are to die for. This is one design find that’s sure to add a pop of luxury AND color to any space.
So glamorous, we’d hang one in every room of the house. This light fixture is upscale glam with an edge, and the perfect addition to any room needing a statement piece – dining room, bathroom, living area – the possibilities abound. The pendant features three lights with antique brass spike embellishments and a bronze finish on the inner drum. Gorgeous!
When you want everything Smeg, but you have to start small, consider this glam toaster in cream. It’s sleek, modern, and the not-quite-white shade of cream is just plain lovely.
Organization is key to great design, and everyone needs a catchall. This dish is perfect for corralling small items like jewelry, change, or anything needing beautiful place to call home.
Somewhere between a sconce and a lamp, we found this fab wall mounted swing lamp. Sconces are really having a moment now, with new and modern designs appearing over sofas and nightstands in the bedroom. This version has a substantial feel with industrial elements, including brass. (It also swivels for added utility).
This chair is a visual demonstration of why we’re so in love with Pantone’s color of the year, Rose Quartz. The color is pure perfection — feminine, with just the right amount of pink, but soft enough to double as a neutral when necessary. Done up in lush velvet with pleating elements and an antique brass base (that swivels!), you have definitely achieved accent chair perfection.
Sometimes simple is better, and we think so in the case of this all purpose bar cart. Metal and wood accents play well with any decor, and wheels allow for easy transport from room to room. When the party’s over, use in the kitchen to store dishes, small appliances, or other essentials appropriate for display.
Storage is always en vogue, so stock up on chic organization must haves like this versatile basket. Use for laundry, toys, shoes, magazines, closet overflow, or, well, anything. The graphic pattern and leather handles are modern and display-worthy, so leaving this storage bin in view is a smart move.
Instead of organizing agallery wall
opt for a single bold print instead, like these bright orange kumquats. The colors are simple, organic, beautiful, AND this design is exclusive to domino! Order this print unframed, framed in black or white, or on printed canvas.
If you’re loving Rose Quartz, but still not ready for a total makeover in pink, try incorporating smaller accent pieces instead. This faux lamb’s wool pillow cover is a great way to start. It’s affordable, full of fun texture, and (YAY!) machine washable. Yes, please.
There’s nothing not to love about this graphic area rug. It’s 100% wool, incorporates a hint of Rose Quartz, and was actually inspired by paintings. Just try not to fall in love.
Everything old is new again, and that includes this modern take on a classic chesterfield and tuxedo sofa. This settee is the perfect shade of powder blue — lovely, subtle, and somehow romantic and modern at the same time.
We love an all purpose bowl, especially when it’s Scandinavian inspired and copper plated. Use for storage, or simply as a modern decorative accent.
You may be fooled into believing that this simple (and gorgeous) tea kettle has Scandinavian roots, but it’s actually made in Japan by a third generation enamelware company. When a design element works as well as it looks, it’s a definite must have. Get one for yourself, and keep this kettle in mind for future wedding gifts.
This colorful crystal vase is just as beautiful without flowers. Soft shades of pink are all the rage this year, and we think a small accent piece by kate spade is a great way to get on board. (Hint: It would make an excellent Mother’s Day gift, too.)
