    Evolving Doors

    If you live in a home with those flat, featureless hollow-core doors (as I do), here’s a great idea for adding some color to your room: wallpaper. Even if you’re renting (as I am), you can try removable wallpaper or just commit to replace the door should you move. Just ask your landlord first!

    Find the above brief how-to from Martha Stewart here.

    On the Grid

    As a person with a massive collection of grid notebooks in her office cube, I really dig these SAIC origin cuatro platters from CB2′s Design Collab. They were created by School of the Art Institute of Chicago student Allison Rokusek, who based her design on – you got it –  grids. $3.50-$21.95.

    Animal Instincts

    I was browsing the new arrivals section of the Anthropologie web site and ran across two fantastic animal-shaped home decor items – one whimsical and one more realistic. Above, the adorably goofy Domesticated Trinket Dishes, $22 each. Below, the strange and elegant Archipelago Serveware, $168 for the set.

    The Golden Hour

    I just found this great post from Annabode featuring 10 Ikea hacks that require only a can of gold spray paint. I don’t know what it is, but gold paint really does elevate these simple, inexpensive pieces. Above, gold paint added to the inside of a $20 FOTO pendant lamp. Below, gold paint on the metal bases of TOBIAS chairs ($79 each).

    Rock On

    I’ve been seeing a lot of geodes in decor magazines lately. As a kids, my brother and I used to hunt for rocks with our dad and even had a rock tumbler. My point here is that geodes, aside from being lovely, have a lot of nostalgic appeal for me. Today, I ran across a few for sale over at Anthropologie. The above 8″x9″x7″ geode retails for $500. I instantly thought to myself, “I wonder if you can get geodes on Etsy?” Well, duh, of course you can. And for a lot less $$$.

    This 10 1/2″ x 4 1/2 x 6″ Uruguayan Amethyst Geode Cathedral is just $245 on Etsy.

    Face It

    I’m always on the lookout for cute trinket dishes Like this Tuesday Bassen dish from Urban Outfitters, $35. I keep at least one in every room. They’re a great way to leave your stuff all over the house without it looking like you leave your stuff all over the house.
