    Somebody Make Me One of These

    Yesterday I ordered way more toilet paper online than I have room to store in my apartment, because savings. Today I run across this Cloud Toilet Paper holder by Bertrand Jayr and Lyon Bétonon. I would love to have one of these to free up some cabinet space. Alas, they don’t sell these on Amazon. Via Awesome Products.

    The Accordion Basket is Back

    I saw these accordion baskets last year at Anthropologie. Of course, by the time I decided that I, too, might want to store picturesque rolls of twine on the wall, they were complete sold out. But they’re back! $36-$58 at you-know-where.

    DIY Plant Holder

    I’ve been seeing this colorful cord plant hangers all over Pinterest. Good news: Urban Outfitters has a how-to for making them on their blog. The knots don’t look too hard, but I may end up consulting the local Boy Scout troupe. Get the instructions here.

    Magnetic

    In honor of Easter weekend, here’s an unexpected way to add a little Peter Cottontail to your decor. This is magnetic wallpaper from Groovy Magnets. It’s made from iron particles on a vinyl base and is a super stylish alternative to a magnetic bulletin board. Each piece is about 104″ x 24″ and costs € 75. They do ship to the US for an additional cost (around $40).

    Hang-ups

    Hanging planters are a great option if you want some greenery but don’t want to take up valuable surface area that could be dedicated to things like your junk mail, keys and pocket change … or is that just me? Regardless, right now there are tons of lovely options out there like the above teak planters from Anthropologie ($78 each).

    Or this M.F.E.O Jungalow planter from West Elm, $75.

    Or this more-affordable Ceramic hanging planter made from a vintage mold, $38 from Boulder Design.

    I think this is the best bargain of the bunch - Jute plant hanger with geometric planter, $20 from Classic by Nature.
