Loving: Hookaboo Multi-hook

This coatrack from Smart Furniture is so great.  I would love to hang a bunch of them together along a wall of my bedroom.  How easy would it be to get ready in the morning if you could hang up everything you could possibly need the night before?  You could have a hook for everything from underwear to the shoes, and then when you're done, they just fold back up.

Loving: Lions Tigers Kittens Oh My!

How awesome would it be to do a Wizard of Oz themed room with this Lions Tigers Kittens Oh My toddler bed set from Modern Nursery.  It's just cute enough to be great for kids, but is so cool and quirky, I kind of want it for my bed.

Loving: Geo Table

This Geo Table from Feel More Human is pretty much just a big hunk of wood.  It's a really simple piece of furniture, but it really can set the mood for a room.

Loving: Leaf Dishes

These leaf dishes from Graham and Green are really fun.  They're really simple and rustic because of the leaf design, but the silver makes it very luxe.

Sitting on: Bamboo Spring Chair

I love these Bamboo Spring Chairs from Design Public.  It looks like someone just took a sliver of bamboo and bent it into a chair shape.  I'd have a bunch of these around a big white dining room table.

Loving: Green Hourglass

Hourglasses seem to me to be more relaxing than a countdown to something.  And I love that these ones from Z Gallerie are really simple but with green sand.

Loving: Nest Bassinet

I've been looking for a bassinet that looks nice, but is small enough to keep in a small room.  This Nest Bassinet from Exclusively Home looks perfect.  It's small enough to keep by the bed, but looks sturdy.  Plus, it doesn't look like it's only for a baby, so you could probably use it later on for other things.

Loving: Radcliffe Etagere

I think this Radcliffe Etagere from Jonathan Adler at Unica Home is just a little too luxe for my home, but it's just too pretty to not want. I love the Greek key cutouts on the side, and that it tries to be simple with the shiny white lacquer.

Sleeping on: Tree Bed

This Tree Bed from Shawn Lovell Metalworks is really beautiful.  Each tree looks different, as though they were really just trees growing in the forest.  I would love to fall asleep every night feeling like I was sleeping in a tree.

Loving: Folding Birdhouse

I love this little folding birdhouse from the MOMA Store because it keeps the old idea of an actual house for the birds, but makes it completely modern.  Plus, the little windows are really cute.

Loving: Ola! Crib

I think the greatest thing about this Ola! crib from Design Public is how it converts twice.  It goes from crib, to toddler bed, and then you can pull off the slatted sides and make it into a twin bed.  Plus, it actually looks like something you'd want around the house that long.

Loving: Knife Wall Hook

These knife wall hooks from TC Studio at Supermarket HQ would be totally out of place in most rooms in a house, but that's half the fun of it.  They would be very Psycho in a bathroom, especially with a red bath mat or towels.

Swinging in: Stripey Hammock Chair

It's still snowing, but I really just want it to be sunny and warm already!  I can totally picture myself hanging this hammock chair from Graham and Green somewhere off the house and just reading a book outside in the sun.  Maybe in a couple more months it'll finally stop snowing and the dream can become reality.

Staring at: Fes

I love the intricate pattern on this Fes print from CB2.  It's a reinterpretation of ancient Moroccan mosaics, printed onto canvas, so you can just hang it like a piece of art.  It would be really cool to add this print to a really modern home, just to mix things up.

Loving: Stuffed Bear

I love this funky shaped stuffed bear from Emmo Home.  It looks like something that was handmade generations ago, but magically survived years of love, hugs, and drool from previous kids.  Plus, it doesn't have any little buttons or anything to choke on, and it looks like sewing up little tears and rips would only make it look even more unique and endearing for a child.

Loving: Orla Kiely Dinnerware

I'm completely in love with just about everything from Orla Kiely, I currently own a set of notepads that are just too pretty to write in.  But now Target's coming out with Orla Kiely dishes so now I can actually use them and replace the odd mug that breaks instead of buying a set and just looking at it through a glass cabinet.

Loving: LAX Wal-Mounted Shelf

This LAX Wall-Mounted Shelf from Mash Studios at Feel More Human would be a great to hide all your electronic stuff under a flat screen TV.  You'd have to drill a hole or two for the wires, but you'd be able keep the cable box, DVD player and video game stuff behind closed doors.

Loving: Meridian Table Lamps

These Meridian lamps from Feel More Human give off a really nice glow, almost like candlelight.  They also have a subtle mum design in rich colors that can either fade into a background or pop on a side table.

Loving: Little Twin Cub

I love the idea of furniture with multiple uses, like storage that's also seating.  This Little Twin Cub cabinet from Swigg at SupermarketHQ is a great example.  It's perfect for any small area that needs some storage, like a entryway or kid's room, plus it's made of all sustainable materials.
