The skies may be grey, and snow may be falling in your part of the country, but we’ve got some things that are sure to help brighten up your day! We’re sharing another set of the best bookmarked interiors, design and products of the week.
For your viewing pleasure, we’ve got an eclectic grouping of design this week, from a Mid-Century home in Australia that’s gone totally modern, a colorful California guest suite, a little market with big ideas, a rug that’s a work of art, and lots of inspiring items for you to shop.

Mid Century Gone Very Modern
Ever wonder what happens when an historic Mid-Century Home goes totally modern? This Australian home does just that. Built in 1959, design firm Studio Gorman gave a totally modern update to the interiors, bringing in colorful and sculptural furnishings. The result is a totally enviable home, not to mention the pool and that view!
For a dose of organic modern in your space, try this simple ceramic vase. The black color provides a bold punch, while the rounded shape and rattan wrapped handles have an earthy feel. Throw in some sculptural branches and you’ve got a perfect centerpiece or accent for a tabletop.
Seriously Soft Sheets
Earlier this week we shared 12 Bed Linen Pairings to give your bedroom an upgrade, and we came across another sheet set that we just had to share. These jersey sheets from Tuft and Needle are not only seriously soft, they’re also wrinkle free and help wick away moisture. Now that sounds like a good nights sleep!
Little Market, Big Ideas
We’re totally smitten with all the wares on offer at the Little Market, a non-profit fair trade shop that focuses on ethical and artisan made products from around the globe. We especially love their handmade pillows in graphic black and white, which are all sewn by women in India. It’s shopping you can definitely feel good about.
A Natural Light
We can never pass up a great lamp, especially on that looks this good (and is only $20!) Part of the new collection from Project 62 at Target, its sculptural round base and textured finish give it a handmade feel that will light up any corner of your home.
Hang In There
Give your clothes somewhere special to hang with these sculptural modern hangers. Available in black or copper, they’re an easy (and affordable) way to elevate your closet and keep it looking just as modern as the rest of your home.
A Colorful Guest Suite
What happens when the 2nd Floor suite of a duplex gets a color filled re-do? You get the Yolk house (named for the yellow staircase at the center of the building), a space with period details and lots of fun festive, color choices. We seriously can’t get enough of that gorgeous mint green tiled bathroom!
One Slick Side Table
Need a special spot to place your new house plant? Go with this hourglass shaped side table. The sculptural shape is very on trend, and the metal, rust colored finish brings just the right amount of edge to any interior.
Brutalism for Breakfast
The concrete and black metal accents in Paradise, a new restaurant in London, definitely bring to mind the more iconic features of brutalist style. Designed by Dan Preston, the sleek and sharp interiors are in sharp contrast to the colorful and bright Sri Lankan food being served. Its a combination that has us intrigued- booking our reservation now!
Art For Your Floor
Art doesn’t have to be confined to your walls- it can even be on your floor thanks to a new collection of rugs from Nordic Knots. They collaborated with Danish artist Carsten Beck Nielsen on 3 new designs that integrate simple, graphic artwork into hand knotted wool rugs. The results are statement pieces that might just make your walls jealous.
Petite and Pink
We love an unexpected color in a kitchen, whether it’s bold black, or a soft shade of pink in this compact California kitchen. Designed by Studio Surface using Semihandmade cabinet fronts, it’s a simple and sweet space that makes the most of a small footprint, and uses black hardware to add in just the right amount of graphic punch.
Speaking of hardware, we’re loving the organic, handmade vibe of these link knobs. They’re a great way to bring a unique touch to standard, store bought furniture (for only $8 each) and come in both black and brass finishes.
