Good Things from Uncommon Goods

Whenever it comes time to give a gift, I’m always on the lookout for something a little different and quirky. One of my go-to sites has been Uncommon Goods. They’ve been offering unique products from artists and designers throughout the world since 1999. You can always find something that is not only designed well, but also is injected with a sense of humor or element of surprise. With Valentines Day comi

West Elm x Kate Spade Saturday

I love when two brands I like come together to create something even more wonderful. Such is the case with the new collection from West Elm and Kate Spade Saturday. I’ve loved Kate Spade Saturday’s fun, bold and very graphic aesthetic from the get go. And then y’all know West Elm, so this new collection seems like a perfect match. Of course the first thing I gravitate to are the pillows. So many pre

WYWO 5: A Bedroom Do-Something part 2

Here is the final reveal of the Bedroom Do-Something! Real quick, click here to see where we started. What was once a bland and bare room is now punched up with welcoming color. With the teal color making such a strong statement on the walls, I decided to keep everything else pretty neutral and white. I added just a few accents of yellow and gray to keep it fun and lively. Because this room mainly acts as a guest bed

Nate Berkus x Target Spring 2015

A new year means new collections for us to oogle at! Yay! First up is another gorgeous collection by Nate Berkus for Target. I’m so impressed with how these collections have continued to knock it out of the park. For Spring 2015, the collection was inspired by something that hits close to home: the California Coast. Nate says “…There’s something distinctly fresh about California Living. It str

Happy Mundane Holidays 2014

It’s the last few days of 2014! Where did this year go? Frankly I’m kind of ready for it to be over, and much more excited about starting anew in 2015. This is actually my favorite time of the year, not so much about the actual holiday, but more that I get some much needed time off to just do some, as I call it, “holiday healing”. I take this time to finally clean up my house from all the chao

TGISunday video break: Light Motif

I don’t really know what’s going on in this video, but it has such pretty colors… and a monkey. What else do you need? “Light Motif is conceived as a synaesthetic experience based on a visual transposition of Music for 18 Musicians – Section II, by the American composer Steve Reich. The ambition of the film is to cinematically capture the extraordinary life force that animates this essential w

Fall 2014 Centerpiece and Pottery-inspired Pumpkins

For this year’s annual Happy Mundane “Great Pumpkin Adventure”, I decided to pick up where I left off from last year. (click here for a refresher) Generally, I like my pumpkins and Fall tabletop centerpieces to not necessarily be too “Halloween-y” but more just a general not do autumn. That way they can stay up through Thanksgiving! I’m still totally drawn to pottery as inspiration
