While I should be researching mattresses… I digress. Prior to having a home I was roaming around and came upon antique olive jars. I ran my hands along one of the large voluptuous beauties and felt an instant connection. I love them in the garden, the bathroom, grouped in corners. So beautiful, looking to collect a few of my own.

cubes, drums, abstract form- love the stool/side table movement. i’m particularly into those made from natural materials like stone, wood, cement. love them on their own or in a mini cluster, mixing and matching different materials and sizes is a pretty good look. haven’t come up with exactly how but it sparks the diy lightbulb, or perhaps the idea of using something not conventionally thought of as a table, AS a table. check out andrianna shamaris, and amma studio for some of my favorites.

when i was in greece i stayed in this house on a tiny island called hydra. upon first entrance i was filled with curiosity and awe as to how the architect built all the little nooks for living within the house. beds were built in, kitchen, sofas, from what i remember most furniture in general was part of the structure. i think it’s an interesting space solution, have seen it mostly in bench style outdoors, but i like the idea of taking it inside, a sofa in a den, a sectional in a living room, a reading nook in a bedroom, could give a space a touch of european vacation home feel- with chic casual customization.
