Modern Etsy: Kiteless

Categories: Modern Decor + Objects
Modern Etsy: Kiteless

Today’s Modern Etsy shop focus is on a lovely and delicate shop, full of bright colors, sweet patterns and enough charm to cajole a chicken out of its feathers. We’d be lying if we didn’t say we kind of want to buy every thing we see in the Etsy store — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: Atomic Attic

Surfing onto the Etsy shop page of Atomic Attic is like walking into your favorite grandmother’s house, where it’s all warm and cozy and it smells like chocolate chip cookies that she’ll soon be putting in front of you saying things like “Eat! Eat! You’re too skinny for goodness sakes!” — Continue reading

How We Feel About The Weather:

Now you, too, can express your disdain over a whole number of topics by a gorgeous dangit walnut block. As seen on the Etsy store Edie’s Lab.

Blue Monday: Ceramic Blue

Blue Monday: Ceramic Blue

Like any good blogger, we took to Wikipedia to get an exact definition of just what ceramic is: “A ceramic is an inorganic, non-metallic solid prepared by the action of heat and subsequent cooling.” How unromantic a definition for a material that has allowed so many artists to woo us — Continue reading

Blue Monday: Set the Table Blue

It has been said, somewhat disappointingly and erroneously, that out of all the colors in the spectrum, the one most likely to produce an actual physical response of “this is unappetizing” is the color blue. While we’ve never tested this out in scientific settings (or even unscientific), we think the — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: Rerun’z

Most of the Etsy shops that we post about are sleek, retro, Mid-Century Modern collections of the highest degree. But every now and then, we come across a shop who’s just a little bit sweeter. Who exhibits a homier, more charming, simple collection, full of items that you know the — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: The Vintage Supply Co

We’re pretty sure we’re not mermaids, but like those gorgeous mythical angels of the sea, shiny objects sure capture our attention. Though, we have to admit, colorful items arrest us even more. For all these reasons and more (except the mermaid part), we chose the fabulous Etsy shop The Vintage — Continue reading

Blue Monday: Put-Your-Feet-Up

What’s more relaxing than plopping down in your favorite chair after work and ceremoniously putting your feet up on a conveniently-placed ottoman? Well, besides an all-expense paid-2-week long trip to Hawaii, not a heck of a lot much else. In case you don’t yet have a conveniently-placed ottoman in your — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: Little Dog Vintage

Oh we do love a sweetly curated Etsy store with only the most fun and fresh items, displayed cleanly and attractively. Little Dog Vintage answers our needs for those things and more. Though nothing strikes us as overly retro or super Mid-Century Modern about many of Little Dog Vintage’s wares, — Continue reading

Blue Monday: Blue Year

We know it’s already three days into 2011, but we’ve never been the sort of person to shop for our new yearly calendar before the new year has started. Many blogs and blog readers have probably already grabbed their catches for the year, but if you’re like us and the — Continue reading

Pattern: Screenprinted Concentric Circles

What is it about placing circles within other circles that makes the whole setup seem so much more intense? Make those circles not-quite-perfect, create them in a bold, bright color and screen print them on a tea towel, and you’ve got the perfect item for showcase on this blog. Seriously, — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: Twoems

Though we’ve certainly tried to avoid cutesy holiday décor for the duration of this holiday season (we are a modern design blog, after all), we thought since this was Christmas Eve, we’d indulge ourselves and enjoy a little adorable holiday illustration that might could be used all year round in — Continue reading

Emerging Designer: Modern Industry

Emerging Designer: Modern Industry

It’s not everyday you come across a fantastic emerging designer on popular handmade website Etsy, but we think we’ve done it. Though we of course cherish and treasure the sleek, almost-not-there-seams of some modern furniture makers, we also have a soft spot for those who show us that their work — Continue reading

Trend: Triangles

Sure, straight lines and sleek angles get a lot of attention in modern furniture and design, but circles and squares aren’t the only shapes who deserve so much focus. We’re not sure why, but we’ve always had a soft spot for triangles (could it be our love of the work — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: Haus Proud

Modern Etsy: Haus Proud

We promise that today’s Modern Etsy store feature was not chosen based solely on the fact that one of our favorite words is “haus” (but it certainly didn’t hurt). With the holidays swirling around us in a dizzying array of commercialism, bright lights and flashy colors, we thought it would — Continue reading

Blue Monday: Say It With Blue

Blue Monday: Say It With Blue

They say a picture is worth a thousand words…so we figure a thank you card in a fabulous modern blue must be worth a couple hundred. Whatever you need to say, and whenever you need to say it, improve your message and boost the communication by saying it with modern — Continue reading

How to: Accessorize the Bathroom Simply

With the holidays closing in, you are no doubt rushing around following every online post on how to get your home ready for holiday house guests, whether by cleaning, decorating, readying the guest room or any other number of things you could be doing. We’re sure the bathroom has already — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: Edie’s Lab

We’ve got the biggest soft spot for letter decor. We love hanging them on the wall. We love placing them on bookshelves. We even just like leaning them against the wall on a table top. There’s no where we wouldn’t put some letters. Imagine our delight and joy upon coming — Continue reading

Blue Monday: Glass

Blue Monday: Glass

What is it with us wanting to put glass—that gorgeous but ever-so-fragile material in our homes? It’s prone to chipping and shattering, gathers dust and isn’t really all that tough. But it also transmits light in a deliriously wonderful sort of way, and comes in so many shapes and colors — Continue reading

Pattern: Suzani

Yes! One of the best things about being a blogger is learning new things! Even though we had heard the word “suzani” before, we had never given it much thought. Maybe mistakingly thinking it was a brand of furniture or something. Nope! It’s a pattern! And one we are going — Continue reading
