Mexican artist and designer Joel Escalona has created 10 objects that challenge the laws of equilibrium. These bowls are one of them. They are beautiful and make me uncomfortable at the same time.

Galileo Quilt

Haptic Lab designed the Galileo Quilt featuring the night sky as it appeared on Galileo’s birthday in 1564 from his hometown of Pisa. Yes, please.

Nanimarquina Rugs

I love oddly shaped rugs. This large one is stunning. Comes in other shapes as well. Want!

Portable Hanging Magazine Rack

Hanging portable bookshelf and magazine rack. Why not!?

Black Square Trunk

This black trunk would make for a cool nightstand or use two next to each other for a coffee table.

Rainbow Door Stopper

This Rainbow Door Stopper is adorable.

Confetti Map Pillow

I was into this pillow even before I saw it had the word confetti in its name.

Rug by GUR

This rug made me laugh. Yes, more rugs.

Nanimarquina Shade Rug

Not sure what triggered my sudden rug obsession but this one, by Turkish designer Begüm Cana Özgür is a visual gem.

Random Porcelain Cup

Not sure what story I would make up in my mind if someone handed me one of these Random Porcelain Cups printed with unpredictable numbers. I would most certainly not be able to remember my number at a party. Made me chuckle.

Nanimarquina Rabari Rug 2

What a stunning (and pricy) rug. Hand-knotted and hand-woven by Doshi Levien.

Moon Tray

This Moon Tray is a beauty.

Parachute Sheets = Heaven

At a dinner party a few weeks ago my neighbors listed the five best products they bought in 2017. Without hesitation, they started raving about these linen sheets called Parachute. As someone who has never spent a lot of money on sheets, I was surprised at the excitement and enthusiasm that oozed out of both of my neighbors, especially as they are more the quiet, reserved types. Their love for these sheets was palpable. So much, that I spontaneously bought a set after I got home, even though they are super duper pricy. Granted, the 3 glasses of wine might have had something to do with it.

A few days later the sheets arrived. The moment of truth was here! And the verdict: They are F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C. They feel a tiny bit rough, but in a good way. I admit, I am excited to go to bed because of my sheets. And, yes, I do sound like a bored suburban housewife by talking about how much I love my sheets. BUT I REALLY DO!

I admit though, I can’t get over how much I paid for them. They better last a loooooong time! Also, yes, adulting hard!


I’ve had a pretty remarkable a few days in Los Angeles this past weekend and felt like I got to see a glimpse of the magic that’s inside of me, coming into my true power. I had to chuckle when I found this banner just now. They got it from a Frances Hodgson Burnett quote:

“No one smiled. They were all too much in earnest. Colin’s face was not even crossed by a shadow. He was thinking only of the Magic.

‘Then I will chant,’ he said. And he began, looking like a strange boy spirit. ‘The sun is shining – the sun is shining. That is the Magic. The flowers are growing – the roots are stirring. That is the Magic. Being alive is the Magic – being strong is the Magic. The Magic is in me – the Magic is in me. It is in me – it is in me. It’s in every one of us.’…”

Slowdown Throws

How stunning is this throw by Slowdown?


Leaf Shaped Serving Plates

These leaf shaped serving plates made my heart jump a little when I saw them in a store in LA last weekend. How stunning are these? Hat tip to the designer, Nao Tamura.

Goober Candles

These candles by Area Ware are stunningly sculptural. Don’t think I could get myself to lighting them.

Stacking Planter

This Planter by Area Ware is a beauty. The design discretely integrates both a planter and saucer into one form. Lift out the bottom ring to reveal a hidden saucer.

Modern Wood Trivet

This wood trivet is so beautiful, I’d hang it on my walls.

Gold File Cabinet

Whoa! This gold file cabinet is something else.

Wink Eye Bath Mat

This Wink Eye Bath Mat made me smile.

Now this modern doormat by Heymat I could get behind.

This doorstop gets my two thumbs up.

Tritthocker Mono

Mono is a stepstool and a stool. I would adopt him.

(I wish Magazin was in the US)
