    Etsy Find: Laser-Cut Wood Screen

    I was completely blown away by the work of Etsy seller, Lightwave Laser, this morning. Especially this amazingly intricate laser-cut wood screen with a tree motif.

    It reminds me of something you’d find in a Frank Llyod Wright home.

    It’s a little out of my price range at $4500, but I’d say well worth the price considering the level of detail.

    If you’re looking for something a little more affordable, the store also features several laser-cut lamps for just $132 each.

    It Brought The Sauce: Chicago Apartment

    I love to read Saucy Dwellings on Livejournal to get ideas for my house. This particular one was very cool because she took an odd space- a small Chicago apartment- and made it very saucy. Small apartments are always the hardest to furnish, I think, because you have to make sure you’re not doing too much to overwhelm the space. This one was perfectly done, in my opinon. Go here to see all the pictures!

    Galvanized Metal Key Cabinet

    Here’s another great Pottery Barn find.

    Aside from the worn-industrial look, my favorite thing about this little key organizer is the little key compartment with the cool mesh door.

    Galvanized Metal Key Cabinet, $49

    Fairytale Weekend

    I’m off to my brother’s wedding, so it’s only appropriate that I run across this beautiful Slow White collection by Dutch designer, Bo Reudler.

    Each piece is crafted from tree branches.

    Etsy Find: Cool Table

    This is a really neat table at a good price from Junior Allen & Co. on Etsy. I really like the heavily distressed pine finish on it. Go check it out!

    Pinch of Salt

    There’s no danger of falling victim to the old “loosen the shaker lid” trick with these salt and pepper bowls from Perch.

    It also doesn’t hurt that they are absolutely beautiful.


    Tiny Basket Bowls, $26 each.

    In Tandem

    Bicycles make for great art. There’s just something about all the gears and spokes that lends itself to bold graphic designs.

    This four-canvas print is actually from the new Pottery Barn catalog. It’s 96″x48″ and costs just $279. Not bad.

    Mad About Mushrooms

    I’ve been seeing a lot of really cool decorative mushrooms lately. From Target to Etsy, they’re popping up everywhere (see, I made a fungus joke).

    If you’re looking for an overview of some of the really spectacular specimens, check out this post from A Mad Tea Party With Alis.
