aesthetically speaking: double duty bar carts

bar carts aren’t just for holding liquor and bar items these days! they can do double and sometimes even triple duty in a variety of rooms as chic and functional solutions for storage and displaying items. anytime an item can do that is something we can all celebrate, especially if you live in a small space! we’ve rounded up some creative ways that you can use a bar cart around a home. do you have an idea not shown here? let us know in the comments!

one thing is for certain, we love color! and the more ways that we can bring it into the home, the better! we recommend unleashing color wherever you can! otherwise, you can easily get stuck in a very beige world. be daring little by little. start with your accessories and experiment from there into other home decor. soon, you’ll become more adventurous and confident when you inject color into a space. for today’s favorite five, we chose products whose hues were not only bold and vibrant, but also made a fun or creative statement themselves!

aesthetically speaking: african bogolan mud cloth

we love seeing how people incorporate traditional cultural items into contemporary settings! for some, it’s a way of honoring their heritage and for others it’s simply a way of adding character and style to their personal space. one of those items in particular is the african bogolan mud cloth. we love its simplicity and the hand painted geometric lines which give it a graphic, modern feel while still maintaining its rustic nature. lately, we’ve been seeing this motif in both design and fashion, so we wanted to share some of our favorites!

hunt & gather: favorite five fridays

we can’t believe christmas is less than a week away! the team has been so busy as we close out the year and prepare for some exciting new projects in 2015! if you didn’t catch the story on chris meloni purchasing the ozzie and harriet house that kishani designed earlier this year, be sure to check out the los angeles times, curbed la, and variety for more information. we happen to think he and his family are going to enjoy all the wonderful updates that kishani made possible while still keeping some original features of this famous television home. as we were putting this week’s favorite five, we were thinking of the ways that even small updates can transform a room, whether it be new lighting, flooring or even a decorative accessory that keeps everyone talking. we think these items will fill a space with joy and keep the conversations flowing well into the new year!
