Hello Storage Boxes

Dear Ikea, 

You have really outdone yourself on this one.

Oh, and they come in Navy too.

I am a person who loves the finer things in life (although most I cannot afford) so I truly appreciate Ikea and other stores that tend to offer great items at an equally great price.  The problem here is that they usually tend to lack a whole lot of charm - but Ikea has really turned that around with these storage boxes.  Not only the grasscloth look on these guys but adorable labels as well.  I haven't seen them in person yet but I'm thinking I need to head to my nearest Ikea asap and get my hands on some of these.

Hello Tile Obsession

When I saw this image on pinterest yesterday I was completely enamored. I love everything from the brass bryant sconces, to the simple stone vanity, and most of all that ridiculously awesome tile. I immediately followed the image back to its source, New Ravenna. Almost everything they make is absolutely beautiful and can be found only in select retailers. I had seen a few of their tile patterns and bathrooms on sites in the past but never knew the original source and never would have thought so many beautiful items came from one place! Here are some more that really caught my eye.

A herringbone mosaic.

This one is simply beautiful.

More ikat - this time in blues and whites.

More beauty.

A modern take on the traditional hex tile.

And a bathroom thats perfect in a whole different way - totally traditional and yet still modern and stunning.
