TO SPRUCE UP THE HOUSE

New trinkets around the house always jazz up my overall mood. It’s rare that we’ll make big furniture decisions so any kind of change, no matter how small, is totally refreshing.

Like a marble-handled cheese board that you never knew you needed until it’s right in front of your face and then you wonder how you’ve lived for 28 years without it. Same with the jewelry display box. That thing can be used in so many different ways and in so many different places around the house. Just for a little added dimension, some excitement, ya know? Gold-rimmed boxes, man. That and ceramic mugs. I can never have enough ceramic mugs.

Which gets me to the point of the post, the real meat and potatoes of what I’m getting at: ideas for more stuff that I’m eyeing for the house. It could always use a little more sprucing. Here goes:

housewares / the style eater

URBAN OUTFITTERS TERRARIUM // I’ve been wanting this terrarium for ages and ages, although I think I’ll end up with the copper version. It would fit right in on my bookcase.

BODIE & FOU NATURAL BASKET // Baskets are perfect for corralling and hiding random crap around the house, aka my speciality. Need it.

SCHOOLHOUSE ELECTRIC AIDEN CANDLESTICKS // These candlesticks are like the Silver Lake of candlesticks. Cool, but the bones are classic and simple. Reasonably priced if you buy just one (like an apartment right off of Sunset), but pretty expensive if you ball out and get all four varieties (like a craftsman up in the hills overlooking the reservoir).

CRATE & BARREL SUIT NAPKINS // Because a stack of these on my dining table before dinner would really just round out the kitchen vibe, don’t you think?

WEST ELM AGATE BOOKENDS // So I actually ordered these online and received two very different sized agate bookends, in very different colors. They are natural so I GET IT, but what I wouldn’t give for 2 symmetrically shaped ones.

URBAN OUTFITTERS MARBLE HEXAGON CUTTING BOARD // Spotted this little lady over here and can’t stop thinking about it! It would go perfectly with my marble-handled cheeseboard. Could you even imagine how next-level the appetizer game would be around here?

STEVEN ALAN HASAMI MUGS // Because ceramic mugs.

SCHOOLHOUSE ELECTRIC STUDIO DESK LAMP // Because I’m still using lamps from my college dorm room and I just can’t even deal anymore.

STEVEN ALAN FARIBAULT WOOLEN MILLS BLANKET // We eye this blanket every time we go to Steven Alan in Venice. Now that it’s on sale, it mayyyyy just have to happen.
