I love the strange simpleness of this painting from Cathy Scarlett's Etsy store. From the white trunks of the trees, I'm going to guess that it's a painting of birches, of course birches don't have blue leaves, so it could just be a pretty painting.

After a long day of cooking, eating and cleaning up afterward, I think that this more grown up bean bag chair would be the perfect place to relax and nap. It's called the Watusi Floor Cushion from Graham and Green, but it's really just a great excuse to have a bean bag chair again, but with a great print and better fabrics.

I love the cutout detail in this Hana media stand from Pier 1 Imports. You can hide everything away, but the remote controls could probably still reach their recievers even with the doors closed. And the design is subtle enough that you could have it in a room with a lot of other accessories, or you could let it stand alone.

I really want to live in one of the windows in this drawing from Erosner's Etsy shop. It looks like a crazy apartment building in NYC that you would walk by and either see a bunch of zoo animals in the windows or a mad scientist's colorful explosions in other windows. The name of it is Forty-First and Fifth Ave., maybe it really exists.

I love the Cobra Lamp from Hive. I think I would keep it in the more spherical shaped configuration. It just looks more like a little globe of light. Of course it's great that the light can be swiveled around to wherever you want it without being too obvious.

These glass vases from Stille Ben Shop are all hand blown, so each on has a slightly different shape and are a little bit quirky. And they have a really beautiful smoky color that makes them pop in a room instead of just fading in the background.

I think the muted tones in these photographs from Pixieblossom's Etsy shop are the perfect thing to get through winter. They remind me of the beautiful colors of spring without being to bright and showy. These smallish (8x8) photos would be great grouped together on a wall.

These Livingstones from Smarin Design look just like river stones that I already love to use around the house. They also look really comfortable, like bean bag chairs, but nice enough to stand alone in a room. Plus, you can pile up a bunch like those stone piles you find on the beach.

Unfortunately, this awesome Weltfeld shelving unit from Matthias Ries Design Office is only a prototype, but the second they start making them, I would run out and get a bunch. I'm guessing that it's made out of recycled, heavy duty canvas. When you unroll it, it makes up a complete shelving unit that would be perfect for an entry way or office, but when you move, you can just roll it back up.

I love this Shinshoku watch from Tokyo Flash Japan, but it would take a while to get used to telling time on it. The red lights are hours, the green lights indicate 15 minutes, and the yellow is just 1 minute. So the watch above says 8:35. But you have to press one of the buttons to get it to light up, so most of the time it just looks like a really cool cuff.

This Morfeo sofa from Domodinamica at Unica is perfect for a library/office/guest room. The lamps are built in right over your head, so you can just curl up with a book and not have to worry about weird shadows from table lamps. Plus, it pulls out to a bed just in case company stops by.

I think I would never be able to get out of the house in the morning if I installed this Defendius Labyrinth lock from Think Geek. It would be really fun though to lock the door when guests come over and have them let themselves out.
