Of course, every house should have a first aid kit, but I would love to have mine stored in this Army Style Medical Storage Box from Graham and Green. It's just so awesomely obvious so everyone would know exactly where it is, but oddly stylish enough to just keep out in the open.

I totally heart Martha Stewart. I actually had a subscription to the magazine when I was a teenager (yeah, I'm a dweeb). So, I would naturally love to have an entire house outfitted with Martha furnishings like this Bloomery rug, a fully stocked craft room with every color of Martha Stewart Glitter and a kitchen with all of her pretty cooking tools.

Everytime I see really sweet bedding, like this Renate Flora duvet set from Ikea, I swoon and start envisioning waking up on a sunny Saturday morning cuddled up in it. Then, I crash back to reality where I live with a guy who woule never go for something like this, and even if he would, the baby would never let me sleep that late and wake that peacefully. I can still dream though!

I love the contrast of the natural brown interior and the bright exteriors in these Coconut Laquerware Bowls from Branch. They seem like the perfect size to set everything up when you're cooking or to use as little storage bowls.

I think winter makes me want to completely redecorate my place with dark woods and wooly rugs, so this Matera Dresser from Design Within Reach would be perfect. It's really simple, but I love how the trim frames the drawers and holds it up off the floor.

So when I was little I got it in my mind to make my mom a pair of slippers as a surprise. So I found some nice green fabric, traced my mom's shoes right in the middle of it, and cut them out. A little glue and some cotton balls later I gave them to my mom only to have her realize I'd cut up the fabric she'd just bought to make a new skirt for herself.

I love that these Outdoor Hanging Candles from Dutch by Design can be hung just about anywhere so you can have candle light everytime you have dinner outdoors without cluttering up the table or installing permanent light fixtures.

I really hate having to do my hair for anywhere that a ponytail isn't appropriate. It just always ends up falling out unless I shelac it in place with a combination of mousse, hairspray, and several pounds of bobby pins. But this Kimberly Hair Comb from Emily Elizabeth Jewelry at Supermarket HQ looks sophisticated and really easy.

This Panier Table from the MoMA store combines a bunch of my favorite things: it's a really fun shape, it's clear so it'll make a bunch of really cool shadows, and it's green! Awesome! It of course comes in other colors too, but the green rocks.

Now that my little guy is teething, he'll chew on just about anything he can get his hands on. I used to think that wood would be too much for little teeth, but it seems like the harder the better, so this Hippo Teething Toy from Little Alouette at Supermarket HQ would be perfect.

I'm a complete sucker for cute paper like these Walk Through the Woods Note Pad Sets from Cicada Studio at Supermarket HQ. I even have stacks of stationary that's too pretty to write on and mail to prove it. So I would love to get these to jot down quick notes or shopping lists, but we all know they would just end up lying nicely on top of my desk.

This Fifties Kitchen Hanger from Graham and Green is really cute, and you always need all the storage space you can get in the kitchen. Of course, there's no rule that you would have to hang this in the kitchen, but it would probably just confuse guests if you hung it in the bathroom.

They say that this Animal Farm wallpaper from Ferm Living at Velocity is for kids, but I would put it up in just about any room. It would be really cute as a kitchen back splash or in a bathroom, or just a small strip along the bottom of the wall.

This Eye Bench from Vivavi would be perfect in so many rooms. It could hang out at the end of a bed and hold extra blankets, or by the front door with bins for mittens and hats. And I love how all the little layers of bamboo look like stripes.

This Bird Bowl from Prince Design UK at Supermarket HQ is made from pressing a vintage lace doily into a porcelain bowl while it was still soft. I love that the affect is texture and not just painted on, and the teal color is just beautiful.

I love that this Airplane Mobile from Flensted Mobiles at Design Public isn't the usual cute stuffed animals. I would definitely design an entire baby room around this mobile, with blue walls with clouds just like in the picture.

I would get one of these Stroller Blankets from EliseHooperDesign's Etsy shop just for the cute little cars print on the back, but I really love that you can get it personalized with your kid's name. It just makes it that much more special for the little guy.

This Journey Journal from Cracked Designs at Supermarket HQ is such a great way to remember a road trip. It has just enough pages to quickly jot notes and thoughts, but not so many you feel like you have to write down every thing that happened just to fill it up. And the cover has pin holes over major cities and little pins and a string, so you can see exactly where you went.

I think the best part about this Tree Friends Mobile from Branch is the little hedgehog at the bottom. It's just so cute! Of course the rest of it is pretty cute too, and quirky enough to just hang in the window of any room.

Okay, I know it's way to early for Valentine's Day stuff (though stores were already stocking it in December!) but these "Olive Juice" cards were too cute. They're from In-Vita Paper Studio's shop at Supermarket HQ.

I love little things that look delicate but I usually would just break them or stain them and pretty much just ruin them after a couple uses. But these Lace Doily Serving Dishes from FoxAnd Clover's Etsy shop just look dainty but can stand up to the abuse of getting used a lot.

I can't believe this Until Dawn Curtain from Dutch by Design is all paper. It's beautiful and intricate and I need to have them in my bedroom now. Just think of how nice it would be to wake up to the sun filtering in through all those pretty flowers.

I'm normally just into the regular blocks as toys, but these World Building Set Blocks from Little Sapling Toy's Etsy shop are really awesome. They have just enough detail to be recognizable, but plain enough to blend into the regular shaped blocks.
