Loving: DuffyLondon Chandelier Print Wall Light

I liked this Chandelier Print Wall Light from Exclusively Home just for the print's quirkyness and cool color, but it's even better because it lights up.  It would make a great grown up night light in a hallway.

Loving: Ninna-Nanna Bassinet

This Ninna-Nanna Bassinet from Liapela is really simple.  It just has the basket and a frame that rocks, so you can just pull off the basket and let your baby sleep comfortably anywhere in your home.  And when your baby outgrows the bassinet, you can use the basket for toys or blankets.

Loving: Aristocrat Armchair

I saw this Aristocrat Armchair from Exclusively Home in a store window and it really just caught my eye.  I doubt I will ever own a home where this is appropriate, but I can at least aspire to someday have a room that it fits into.

Loving: Sardinian Rugs

These Sardinian Rugs from Unica Home are really different, but with great colors.  The pixelated patterns are really fun, but since they are more traditional patterns, they aren't so out there.

Loving: Inhabit Graphic Pillows

I really just love the prints on these pillows from Inhabit at Design Public.  They're earthy and quirky and can go in so many differently designed rooms.

Loving: Curved Bent Plywood Shelf

This is the prefect shelf to have during college and the first couple years after.  You're moving around almost yearly and usually doing so in a small car.  The shelf from MojoWorkin's Etsy shop doesn't have any little screws to get lost and it can come apart, and lay completley flat.  Plus, the swoopy-ness is really cool.

Loving: Kid's Work Bench

I already love the idea of having kids playing at building and making their own toys instead of just buying them, so having something like this work bench from Inquisitive Kid that's the perfect size for kids is great.  It's a real work bench, just smaller than the real thing, and it has places for tools, a built on clamp, and it's solid so kids can hammer and bang on it without it falling apart.

Loving: Tissue Box Covers

This tissue box cover from YokoMono Studio at Supermarket HQ is something that you never knew you needed until you saw it and decided that living with those ugly tissue box designs all winter was just silly.  And who wants to look at a cardboard box with flowers all over it while you're pollen allergies are acting up?

Loving: Pom-Pom Throw

The dusty pink color of this Pom-Pom Throw from Graham and Green is really beautiful.  It's girly without being too overly Barbie-ish.  I think the little pom poms would be a little tickly on your face, but they are really cute.

Loving: GenevaSound Medium Hi-Fi

I love how clean this Hi-Fi from GenevaSound at Design Public is.  It plays music from just about any source: iPod, iPhone, CDs or the radio.  They all attach to the top, and you just get a small display on the top right so it just looks like a speaker.

Loving: Celestial Parade Crib Set

I love this Celestial Parade Crib Set from Fawn and Forest.  It's girly without being really prissy or cotton candy colored.

Loving: Scuba Cat Print

I love this.  Hamburgerpanda at Supermarket HQ has taken one of the funniest and strangest cat videos on the internet and made it into an adorable print.  It's dead on, and I would love to have this in my house.

Loving: Blossom Bracelet

This Blossom Bracelet from Aster + Sage at Supermarket HQ.  The colors are really beautiful and the felt almost makes it look like a cartoon version of a flower.  I would totally wear this out now, but how awesome would it be to get this as a prom corsage?

Fainting on: Antoinette Fainting Sofa

I would love to put on a big fluffy dress, pour a glass of wine, and pretend to faint on this sofa from Urban Outfitters.  I probably only came up with the image because it's actually called a Fainting Sofa, but it would still be fun.

Loving: Glass Milk Jug

I love the idea of turning something as childish and throw away as a milk carton into something that looks really stylish and is permanent.  This little Glass Milk Jug from Graham and Green would be really fun to serve milk from at a brunch, or even just for yourself in the morning.

Loving: Reese Li Diaper Bags

I love these diaper bags from Reese Li.  They come in a bunch of modern fabrics that are all completely stainproof and wipeable.  There's a bunch of different pockets inside, and the strap comes off so you can attach it to a stroller really easily.  And, when your baby grows out of it, it's something that you can carry around as a purse or tote bag.

Loving: Irezumi Dishes

These tattoo-inspired Irezumi Dishes from Ink Dish at Velocity are really cool.  The coloring reminds me of the antique blue dishes my mother collects, but the designs are completely new.

Loving: Pine Folding Table

So I currently live with a crappy grey plastic folding table in my living room that my husband uses to study.  Of course there isn't any other good place for him to spread out his binders and books and leave them there, so it stays.  I would much rather have this Pine Folding Table from Muji at the MoMA Store.  Not only does it looks worlds better than the grey plastic, it would actually blend in with the furniture we have and look like a real piece of furniture that we meant to buy.

Loving: 1-layer Center Ring

More fun with 3D printing.  I just love the coral-like texture it makes in this ring from Nervous System at Supermarket HQ.  It's a really delicate looking piece, but actually this ring is really strong.

Loving: Frames Wallpaper

I love this wallpaper from Graham and Brown from Design Public.  You can color it in, draw pictures in the frames, or use it to frame photos.  This would be really great to paper a kids room with and let them actually color on the walls to decorate their own space.
