In the blogging world few things make me smile ear to ear like a “coworker” taking their love of making to a new level. We Make Stuff is the new venture of Funkytime founder Sibylle and her equally creative brother. The Berlin-based business creates high-quality handcrafted one of a kind pieces for urban interiors with wood, concrete, steel, and textiles as their signature trademark. Can’t wait to see what’s in store from this awesome new line!

I have a small, but ever-growing, collection of wooden cutting boards. Most are interesting because of the type of wood they’re made from or their shape, and I’m thinking that one of these just released Vege_table cutting boards from Seletti would make a fantastic addition. The tomato is my favorite!

As I write this I’m trying to ignore the buds i saw on the tree in my front yard this morning. In January. I’m so not okay with that, I haven’t had nearly enough time in front of my fireplace yet this winter. Inside I’m keeping it as cozy as possible despite nature’s warnings – spicy candles, pots of soup, and of course plenty of blankets to bundle up in.

It’s no secret that I love a good mood board or collage, and today I’m happy to share that I’m partnering with Polyvore for Project Decorate! You probably know the site best for their super easy drag-and-drop fashion boards (aka “sets”), but Polyvore is expanding into home decor and interior design. Absolutely perfect for those of us who consider creating dream homes a hobby, as well as those who do it for a living. You can even follow me if we have similar taste.
Create a room, an inspiration board, or an entire home in a few clicks of your mouse. I’ve already pulled together a living room, bedroom, dining room, and kitchen goods that are tugging at my checking account along with a set that tells you a little bit about my style aesthetic. Not only was it fun, it’s completely addicting. There’s even an app if you need to get your fix on the go!
Now here’s the best part – visit my contest page, create a set about Modern + Bright style, and you just may win one of two $500 West Elm gift cards! That’s right, we’re giving away a total of $1,000 for you to feather your nest. So get to creating a Polyvore set with some of the pieces I’ve selected as part of my collection and be sure to tag it with #ProjectDecorate. Click here to enter and good luck!
The new year is kicking off with Aztec-inspired prints across the board. This bold, graphic print has been popping on garments, accessories, and in the home. It’s equally eye-catching in black and white or bold colors, and lends itself especially well to cold weather essentials like cardigans and throws. I can’t wait to get on board!

Plumen recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for its second designer low-energy lightbulb, and holy crap the campaign is already fully funded! It’s really easy to see why, just look at Plumen 002. Art and ambience all in a lightbulb of all things. They’ll be available for purchase come September 1st and LED products are coming down the pipeline.
I have a mega design crush on Brooklyn-based artist Rebecca Atwood, and if possible it just got bigger. Her use of traditional textile techniques and hand painting makes my heart go pitter patter and both are on full display in the new Rebecca Atwood and Calypso St. Barth collaboration. Four unique designs with reversible details are now available online and in stores. The white canvas, subtle metallics, and soft sea greens and blues will bright up your winter and still feel fresh and vibrant when summer rolls around! You can read more about the process on Rebecca’s blog.
