Are you a knick knack-y kind of person? For someone who is, choosing accessories for the home is as easy as choosing things you really like and incorporating them into your decor. But for folks who don’t like knick knacks (as we suspect many modern and minimalist folks are), sometimes — Continue reading

How to: Hanging Mason Jar Lights

The changing of the seasons means a lot of different things to each of us, and often smelling new fall scents in the air and seeing the landscape change makes each person think of elements that remind them of fall. For some reason, along with apples and leaves and pumpkins, — Continue reading

As the wheel of the seasons continues to turn and we find ourselves closer to fall, we begin to crave darker, more autumnal items that remind us of the time of harvest. Of organic shapes that make us feel closer to the earth and all it holds. We have found — Continue reading

We just can’t get enough pattern these days. We’re really into bringing bold, energetic, brightly-colored patterns into our lives and our homes, in any way we can. Whether that’s rugs, furniture, accessories or in the case of this post, art! We found this neat Etsy user creating some really brightly-colored, — Continue reading

Kilim! Suzani! Ikat! If you’re as big a fan of tribal and ethnic prints as we are then you’re gonna love this Modern Etsy store we found: Sukan! Full of lovely patterns and lovely colors, these square pillows would literally be the perfect thing to add to a home, especially — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: Bold & Noble

There’s a lot of precedent for lots of little things making up bigger things. Atoms, for instance, are tiny things that like to interact together to make big things like tables, cars and people. One bird — impressive enough, but lots of birds = a scary and amazing flock! Such — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: Tiny World in a Bottle

Oh to have the world in your hands! It’s probably how you feel right after you graduate from college, with the rest of your life and all your hopes and dreams still ahead of you. Then, as the real world becomes more and more real the older you get, don’t — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: and furthermore,

Are these doily clocks too cutesy to be on a blog all about the latest and greatest in innovative modern design? We don’t care. We love ‘em. Besides, sometimes you need a little light-hearted cuteness to bring some balance to all that serious, cold modernism. Though these would seem to — Continue reading

Alright it’s true: we’re huge animal lovers. But we swear that had nothing to do with today’s Modern Etsy choice. * We chose this Etsy store, which sells adorable — er, I mean very modern — watercolors of animals because we actually think these would make an affordable art choice — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: Jaimers

File this post in the dictionary under the word “oversight.” In big bold letters. How we haven’t featured the Etsy shop of Design Milk‘s Jamie Derringer, “Jaimers” yet, is amazing, and something that must be remedied. Known for stunning tastes and a keen eye on the blog, what you’ll find — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: Objects of Beauty

It’s been awhile since we featured an Etsy store that sold vintage goods we coveted; let’s pick a good one for today, shall we? We chose Object of Beauty, a store mastering the art of finding some of the coolest and most modern wooden accessories we’ve seen in awhile. Beautiful — Continue reading

Trend: State Pride

With the Fourth of July just around the corner, we thought we’d celebrate country-wide state pride with some fun state-shaped things, which we have to admit seem to be cropping up everywhere. From cutting boards, to soap to jewelry to even state-shaped wooden puzzles, states are the next trendy pattern! — Continue reading

Loving these wooden, magnetic puzzles of countries and states. We like how well they’re made — more accurate than some cutesy-crafty version. This would be fun for a fridge to add some warm interest, but also fun to incorporate on other metal pieces in the home, for a fun surprise. — Continue reading

Loving, loving these bubble chandeliers and these cute wooden taper candle holders. They’re all quite modern pieces, but they have an indeterminable warmth and sweetness to them that would certainly bring a lovely addition to any space. More here.

We’re just loving all the colors and simple patterns we spotted in Etsy store dahlhaus. Such cute, fun, summery color palettes and perfect for punching up a pantry, table or the open shelving in your kitchen. Pretty good prices, too! We really are digging dahlhaus ceramics. Check out all these — Continue reading

Trend: Brightly-Colored Owls

We like when two previous trends combine to create a forceful trend that will probably be short-lived but quite delightful while it exists. Owls have been in favor in interiors before, and recently all we’ve been seeing lately in spaces is small and powerful pops of bright, neon colors. So — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: STUDIOPATRO

The lovely designs on cloth coming 0ut of San Francisco-based Etsy store STUDIOPATRO are soothing our weary soul right now. We like the soft, subtle, classic color palette, and like how designs are both slightly architectural and kind of handmade-ish. These designs straddle that line between too cute and too — Continue reading

Tradition vs. Modern Technology

We usually revere modern technology in the design world for its ability to help create fresh, funky and usually more affordable than handmade designs that can be accessible to lots of folks. Because the design world’s so big, handmade and hand-crafted work still has a place–and sometimes seems more revered — Continue reading

What did the world do before CNC routers? We’re not really sure, but we do know we’re ultra appreciative of designers and artists the world over who took to this new technology to create affordable, modern designs that warm our soul and make us happy to be alive in this — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: Sometimes She Does

Loving the abstract and lovely designs found on the tableware of Etsy shop Sometimes She Does. Organic shapes mingle with recognizable motifs and a fresh color palette enlivens the senses. This certainly isn’t a standard or boring set of plates…they’d infuse your tabletop with a whole heck of a lot — Continue reading
