I could stare forever at this print called Allusion from Yellena's Etsy shop. The detail in it is amazing and the colors somehow work together here. The only way I can describe it, is that it looks like someone blew up a evil seamstress' laboratory, and the silk and hosiery experiments are raining down.

I love the combination of the clear plastic legs and the great fabrics in these Kartell Mademoiselle chairs at AllModern. It almost looks like the chair is floating, the intricate Missoni fabrics gives it an earthy, modern feel.

I love this cork trivet from Mio at Supermarket. Any time you can take something basic that everyone has in their home and make it new and interactive, I'm there. These cork hot pads have a houndstooth pattern and come in sets of 12 (6 of each color), but you can get a couple sets, link them all together, and have one giant hot pad down the center of a table at a dinner party.

So of course the front pillow is the classic Union Jack from KarenHiltonDesign's Etsy shop, but I think I love the bright colors in all the rest even better. The design is classic, but bringing it out in lime, pink and orange makes it pop in a room even more.

This armoire from DucDuc's Cabana Collection at Fawn & Forest would be perfect for an apartment that's lacking in closet space. It has four drawers, an adjustable shelf and a hanging bar. Of course, you wouldn't be able to hang anything too long, but since I'm not big on dresses, it's not that big of a deal.

I love the simplicity of these chairs from Staach available at 2Modern. The Cain chair has really simple lines that let the color do all of the talking. I would get a bunch of the blue chairs around a lacquered black table. And they're stackable, not that there's much need to stack these chairs in your own home, but it's kind of cool that you could.

The pattern on these plates from NotNeutral completely reminds me of patterns on doilies or that you would make with a spirograph as a kid. But the gold on white makes it really beautiful and elegant. I would plan a dinner party just to serve food on these plates.

Yes, I know, it's bright and floral. It's something that would show up in a sitcom at the crazy older aunt's retirement condo in Boca. But I love it! I want to paint a room pale grey blue and plop this sofa from Pier 1 Imports down front and center.

I love these gorgeous kitchen towels from Tikoli. The bottom one is called Air, and the really delicate dandilion seeds are perfect on the really pale blue. And the green one, called Blok, almost looks like geometric bubbles.
