    Well, That’s Cool

    I was tooling around on Pinterest when I ran across the Ground Fridge. It’s a prefab cellar that is self-cooling because, apparently, even if it’s 1000 degrees above ground, it’s like 50 degrees underground. I think my landlord would frown upon me digging a giant hole behind my apartment, but it might be worth it since the Ground Fridge doubles as a wine cellar. Just sayin’. Via If It’s Hip It’s Here.

    Etsy Find: Buttermilk Design Co.

    Macrame has been all the rage lately, showing up everywhere from artsy boutiques to Urban Outfitters. I love the texture of some of the wall hangings I’ve seen, but they are usually well out of my price range. Luckily, I found Buttermilk Design Co. They have some really beautiful, simple geometric designs at very reasonable prices. Above, $183. Below, $110.

    Seen in the Ikea 2016 Catalog

    I just had a chance to click through Ikea’s 2016 catalog and was so impressed. Appropriately titled “It’s the Little Things that Matter,” it’s full of fantastic new decorative items with tons of style.

    In addition to new items, the catalog is a great source of decorating inspiration.

    Garlic Gadget

    Living in small spaces means collecting a lot of kitchen gadgets is pretty much out of the question. That said, I will definitely be making room in my utensil drawer for the Garlic Chop. As much as I love garlic, I absolutely hate the tedious, sticky task of mincing it. $10.08 at Amazon.com

    A Little Monday Marbling

    Did you know you could use spray paint to marble hard surfaces? Me either. Luckily, Vintage Revivals has a great tutorial for upping the cool factor on your plain white vases right here. Now I’m wondering if this would work on Ikea furniture.

    Over the Rainbow

    I’m surprised by how much I like these multi-colored resin nesting tables from Antropologie. Maybe it’s the subtle hues that make them work for me. Available in small and large, $300-$750 each plus 20% off with code SALEAWAY.
