Loving: Stella Stackables

So these stackable cabinets and cubbies from 2Modern are supposed to be for kids, but I love them.  They would be great for my kitchen since storage kind of sucks.

Loving: Hand Print Wallpaper

This Hand Print Wallpaper from Branch reminds me of a crazy game of Chutes and Ladders.  The black and white scheme makes it much more adult, and not quite so crazy.

Eating at: Offi Packet Table

This Offi Packet Table from Design Public would be great to have on a small deck or porch.  You can keep it folded up next to a lounge chair as a side table, but when you want to eat outside, you can unfold it into a table with four seats.

Writing in: Walls Notebook

I saw this Walls Notebook in Urban Outfitters, and I've been kicking myself for not getting it.  Instead of blank pages for you to fill, it has photos of blank walls from NYC, so you can make your own graffiti, or just scrawl your notes across people's windows.

Loving: Wooden Blocks Rattle Set

I love the little faces on these wooden rattles from the MoMA Store.  They're just made from wood, so you don't have to worry about any crazy paints with chemicals when your baby's chewing on them.  Then, after the baby's outgrown them, they're cute enough to keep around the house.

Sleeping on: Calla Bed

I love pieces like this Calla bed from Hickory Chair, because they look like a family heirloom, but would fit into almost any style of decor you like.  It would make a statement in a clean modern room, or it would be at home in a more traditional bedroom.  Plus, the bed itself is enough decoration for a room, so you don't have to worry about making the bed!

Stepping on: Chelsea Rug

The rock pattern in this Chelsea Rug from the Furniture Loft reminds me of the real stone bath mats.  This one though is made from carpet, so it would be soft and warm anywhere in the house.

Sitting on: Madison Armchair

There's something about a comfy chair in a flowery print that I love.  Plus, this Madison Armchair from Pottery Barn has the bonus of a modern flower print that's nice enough to be in almost any living room.

Loving: Trudie Bedding

I love this shade of green!  I would love to have this color in every room of the house.  And the Trudie Bedding from Inmod is gorgeous.  The mix of lime green on white with the great pattern is just what my bedroom needs.

Rocking on: Empire Rocker

This Empire Rocker from Modern Nursery is just a bit to adult to fit into my idea of a baby room, but I love the mix of old school tufted chair, with the rocker legs and clean lines.  And it looks like if you manage to put yourself to sleep during a late night feeding, you could just lean your head against one of the tall sides.  Or you could just ignore that you bought it from a nursery website and have as a cool piece in your living room.

Loving: Damask Indigo Sconce

This bright Thomaspaul Damask wall sconce from 2Modern would be a great thing to hang in an apartment where you can't paint the walls.  It adds just a little bit of color to a room, but that color is so bright and rich that it would stand out instead of fading into the background like other lamps.

Sleeping on: Ludlow Bed

I love the giant tufted headboard on this Ludlow Bed from Feel More Human.  It's one of those great pieces that you can put in a room, and not have to worry about filling up the rest of the room with decorations.  It makes enough of a statement by itself and would probably just look silly with a bunch of other clutter in the room.

Loving: Grassy Organizer

I would love to get a bunch of these little Grass Organizers from Smart Furniture and line them up behind the faucet in the bathroom.  It would be strange and unexpected, but really practical for all the little things that clutter up the bathroom.

Sitting on: Slow Chair

This Slow Chair from Hive Modern looks really comfortable since it's made from a knit cover over a frame.  It will give exactly where you want it, and conform to your most relaxed position.  But I really just love it for the color.  I would love to have a pink chair in my living room, and this is just pink enough without being too pink for my husband.

Loving: P'kolino Klick Children's Desk

This P'kolino Klick Children's Desk from Exclusively Home is perfect to have anywhere in the house.  It's big enough for a little kid to draw and store anything they want, but when they're done doodling, you just store the art supplies under the chair and slide it into the desk where it makes a cube.

Loving: Three-Face Wall Clock

This Three-Faced clock from the MoMA store might take a little time to get used to reading, but it would be really interesting on a wall.  It's practical, but since it would be so spread out, it would be wall art.

Loving: Stanley Wallpaper

I love the crazy geometric shapes in the Stanley modern wallpaper from 2Modern.  The bright orange would be great to do on one wall, or just a strip or two in a room.

Sitting on: Jellybean Lounger

This Missoni Home Jellybean Lounger from Unica Home has a great shape that looks really comfortable.  And the fabric is from Missoni, so it has a really interesting pattern.  It could only be better if it rocks, and it looks like that might be possible.

Loving: Walter Onion Bedspread

I absolutely love the texture of the Walter Onion Bedspread from Design Public.  It kind of looks like you draped spaghetti on your bed after making it.  Plus, it comes in a bunch of different colors and with different colored raised threads.
