Lounging on: EB Lounger

I love this Eazy Bean Lounger from Feel More Human instead of regular outdoor furniture.  It looks really comfy, and you can lounge around outside by the pool without ending up with lines from regular outdoor furniture.  Plus, you can bring it inside and lounge around the house.

Staring at: Elsita's Papercut Prints

These adorable papercut prints are from Elsita's Etsy shop.  The top one of course is Alice in Wonderland, and the bottom one is Red Riding Hood.  They remind me of antique fairy tale books where the pictures have a little bit of creepiness to them.

Sitting at: Braxton Trestle Desk

I love the sawhorse-like look of the Braxton Trestle Desk from Target, like you just grabbed what you could from the basement workshop to hold up your computer.  Of course it looks much nicer than my dad's beat up sawhorses.

Bundled in: Yumi & Laurie BlanQuettes

These bright colored blankets, called BlanQuettes, are from Yumi and Laurie.  They kind of look like giant towels, but soft enough to cuddle up with.  And I love this pattern, called Nevis, simple, cheerful, and chic.  I think it's definitely what I need now that it's getting chilly and I refuse to turn the heat on until at least November.

Purring in: Kittypod

So this Kittypod from Vitamin D has a really similar base as an Eames La Chaise chair.  While I couldn't afford one, at least my cats could live in a little bit of luxury.  Plus, it's cardboard, which every cat loves to destroy.  I just hope you can buy a replacement pod because my cats would eat through that in a flash.

Looking at: Perspective Mirror

This Perspective mirror from CB2 reminds me of something the designers tried to do on Top Design a few episodes ago.  Of course, when it's done right and not in a rush it looks completely better.  I don't know that it would be really functional with every face at a slightly different angle, but it would be really interesting to put a bunch of candles in front of it and see where the reflections go.

Loving: Michael Arras

I love this coffee table from Michael Arras' Etsy shop.  It looks like river rocks, but the rich wooden tones make it warm and organic.

Sleeping On: Chateau Bed

I love the rich heirloom quality of the Chateau Bed from Graham and Green.  It looks like it once belonged in a castle in France.  I'd put it in a room with little to no other furniture, just the bed and maybe a big mirror leaning against a wall.

Loving: An Animal Calendar

I love the animal prints on this calendar at StorybyMia's Etsy shop.  You couldn't really jot down appointments or birthdays, but it's too cute to mark up.

Staring at: Letterfest's Alphabet Art Print

This Alphabet Art Print from Letterfest at Supermarket would be a fun addition to a kid's room.  Of course, even if you don't have children, the bold type, great colors, and cute illustrations make it something that can hang in any room.

Cuddling with: Graham and Green Velvet Quilt

I think I love everything about this Cotton Velvet Quilt from Graham and Green.  The velvet looks amazingly soft and perfect to cuddle with, and the peacock blue color is bright and rich.

Loving: Bamboo Tiles

These Kimono tiles from Anchor Bay Tile are made from taking slices of bamboo and mounting them in resin.  Each piece is unique in color, shape and texture, making them a focal point in any room.  I think they'd make a really interesting new surface for a desk or coffee table.

Sitting on: Bokz Lounge Chair

I love the simplicity of this Bokz Lounge chair from Lunar Lounge Design's Etsy shop.  The basic design really lets the bright orange color take the spotlight.

Knocking on: Reclaimed Doors

These reclaimed doors from Smiths Architectural are a great way to quickly make a big change to your home.  They're antique doors from the 20s and 30s reclaimed from renovated or demolished houses, but once they're fixed up and in your home, it makes your entry way unique.

Sitting on: Truss Museum Bench

This Truss Museum Bench from Context Furniture at 2Modern would be great in an entry way.  It has plenty of room underneath to store mittens or shoes or whatever, and the laminated surface means you can just wipe off any mud or snow.

Staring at: Cloudscape

The print of clouds called Cloudscape from Ross Meneuz at Design Public is beautiful on it's own, but by printing it on balsawood it gives it another texture that makes it unique and rustic.

Loving: Versailles Lamp

This Versailles lamp from Graham and Green looks like it could have been plucked out of a French castle.  The graceful shape is something new and unexpected, but it still looks antique.  They paired it with a black shade, but I think it would be great with a dark teal or plum color.

Loving: Modernlink James Desk

Since I'm naturally cluttered and unorganized, this modernlink James Desk from 2modern would be perfect for me.  It has plenty of space inside to keep everything out of sight, and built in "gills" that can hold files or mail.  Plus, I just have a thing for desks with really big drawers.

Wearing: Pop Out Earrings

So clearly, these aren't for the home, though they might make a fun mobile, but these pop out earrings from Mellissa Borrell at Supermarket are great in so many ways.  They come in the flat sheet of plastic, so you get to punch out your own earrings, put them together, then wear them like you just made your own jewelry.

Dining on: Shinzi Katoh's Cafemug

This adorable cafemug/bowl combination from Shinzi Katoh at Three Potato Four is exactly what I need for my morning oatmeal and coffee run at work.  The bowl fits on top of the mug making it easier to carry with one hand with less danger of spilling both down the front of my clothes.  And the cute birds and trees design is just what I need during the winter when neither of them are around.
