Decor Items I'm Loving Lately

Just wanted to share a few items that have ended up in my "I want this decor" folder.  Super cool things that make you go, "ooooohhhhh, that would look cool in/on my __________" (you fill in the blank).

I first saw these lit circus letters in a cool boutique shop in Portland, called Manor.  I decided to search for them online to see if I could find a better price...and I did.  You can find every letter and a few other fun characters - like "&" and "@"- for sale at  They cost $179 but are huge at nearly 2 feet tall and 1.5 feet wide, adding a major statement to an indoor or outdoor room.

One of my fun new neighbors mentioned these Penguin Clothbound Classics books to me yesterday, and so I looked them up ASAP.  You can find the best assortment online at - each book costs between $11 and $14.  They have many of the great literary classics, like Jane Eyre, Little Women, Great Expectations, The Odyssey, Oliver Twist...just to name a few.  Each cloth book cover was designed by Penguin senior designer Coralie Bickford-Smith.  They look so cool on a painted bookshelf:

Not only are these books beautiful to look at, they contain wonderful literature.  Multi-purposed decor...does it get any better than that?  They'd make great gifts for teachers, bookworms, name it.

I love this Ikat Sari Pouf from Pier 1 Imports.  I bought one the other day to use as an ottoman in my baby's room, and it looks amazing in both her room and my living room so I'm a little torn on where it will end up...I guess it can share some time in both rooms, depending on where we need some extra seating.  There are poufs everywhere lately, but this is the only one I've found that incorporates so many different colors.  It also adds a bit of whimsy in a room, giving it a collected/eclectic feel.  Each pouf is unique, since they're made from scrap Indian sari fabric.

Happy decorating, today and everyday! -Kristen
