If you follow me on social media you probably saw a mention last week about a little interview I did on Lauren Nelson's site (formerly known as Girls of Lincoln Park). It was a fun interview and I love her blog, so it was such a fun opportunity.
One question she asked was about pieces I've got my eye on lately, and two of them in particular I just had to share here as well.
First is this dresser from Crate & Barrel. My mind has started to shift gears at home to our bedroom, which is pretty boring looking right now. While we aren't likely to get rid of our current dresser, I'd love a pair of shorter dressers in place of nightstands. These caught my eye and hoy boy. Total perfection. I love the unstained teak, the long, low lines, the thin drawer pulls... basically the perfect kind of elegant, California cool. Just when I was wondering how I'd convince my husband to drop $3000 when we already have nightstands, I double checked the measurements and they are about six inches too big to fit on our bed wall. Darn it. I have my eye on these smaller (and cheaper) dressers, but I just can't quite get these out of my head. Maybe need to custom design a more petite version...
I also have a thing for stools, benches, and poufs, so I'm always keeping one eye on what's new and different. I fell in looooove with this Arteriors bench (which of course I would buy in a pair). Super sleek lines, simple and restrained design... and just the right hint of quirkiness in the mosquito shape of the legs. I don't have a single place for them right now, plus realized that any future Stephens kiddos would be right at face-bashing height on those corners. But still, maybe for our empty-nester home...? ;)
So anyway, those are a couple things I've been day-dreaming about but won't be adding to our home any time soon. In fact, we have our next couple of purchases pretty much lined up but one keeps selling out and the other I'm waiting to go on sale. So no big changes around here lately, but hopefully soon there will be!
