    Seahorse Pillow

    I’ve always been a big fan of seahorses. Probably because I am such a big fan of regular old land horses. So it makes total sense that I really, really want a pair of these seahorse pillow covers from Humble Collection.

    They’re 100% organic, too.

    No Need to Recylce

    These “plastic” water bottles are actually glass decanters. I love the tongue-in-cheek styling but am slightly annoyed that Solutions doesn’t allow you to choose which of the four bottle designs you buy.

    Harvey Nightstand

    The description calls this color “Lobster Red,” but it looks distinctly orange to me. Maybe it’s a computer screen thing. Nonetheless, I found this new Harvey nightstand from CB2 appealing to both the eye and the budget at just $99.

    It also comes in gray if red (or possibly orange) isn’t your thing.

    Going Green And Clean With The Sheraton In Atlanta

    My pal Jeffrey from the Fun Times Guide To Living Green did a fab interview with the Director of Sales and Marketing for the Sheraton Downtown Atlanta about how they are the greenest hotel in all Atlanta. It’s really quite fascinating, it totally makes me want to go visit now.

    Some Assembly Required

    I have never been technically inclined, but I couldn’t help being complete intrigued by these prints of ordinary objects disassembled and artfully arranged by Etsy seller Brittny Badger.

    Each 13×19″ print is $50.

    I Heart Carts

    I ran across a fantastic idea on SwissMiss this morning. This is a changing table made from an inexpensive Sunex tool cart. I don’t have kids, but I thought there must be a million other things you could do with one of these fantastic, colorful carts – like turn it into a rolling bar cart for a patio or even your dining room.

    I love the yellow, but I only found the red. But this heavy-duty service cart is just $97. It has locking wheels, so you don’t have to worry about your martinis rolling away. You could store glassware and an ice bucket up top and liquor bottles below.

    I also found this economy cart for just $68!

    Arch Magazine Rack

    CB2 is having a summer sale. They’ve got up to 50% off a lot of cool items, including some nice patio chairs. But I particularly like this Arch Magazine Rack, now just $29.99. It’s got a nice Midcentury vibe.

    Office Style

    I just recently rented an office. Now I have a space to go write where I don’t have a bunch of kids bugging me. Working at home is great, except during the summer when the kids are out of school. So now I have to decorate it, and that’s my sticking point. The only thing I know for sure that I want to have is this poster from despair, inc. I don’t really have “customers” in the traditional sense, but when I worked retail, I had this thought many times.

    Dror for Target

    I ran across a few of the Dror for Target items in-store this weekend. They are housed in the dorm area, but are simple and chic enough to work in any home.

    And the student-budget pricing doesn’t make them any less attractive.

    Wood Accent Table, $59.99

    Stick Table Lamp, $19.99

    Plastic Wall Clock, $24.99
