Gift Guides: Stylish Stuff for Minimalists, Under $100

We’ve been busy rounding up cool goodies that are less than $100.

You know the type, this person wears architects glasses, banishes clutter, loves Vera Wang and Calvin Klein, drives a black car, checks in on Door Sixteen religiously, wishes they’d been born Danish and grown up during the mid-century of the last century. Their place may have polished concrete floors, lots of stainless steel and glass and lots of white walls. This person is a design aesthete who is very persnickety about every item that crosses the threshold of his or her home.

This gift guide is for the minimalist. Chances are, that person doesn’t really want STUFF coming in the door, so everything has to have a very clear function. There’s the very staightforward lighting options, the clean-lined toolbox, the unadorned silvery gray ottoman/seat to go with all that stainless, a way to streamline kitchen herbs, even a super-sleek and sanitary peanut dispenser for those who still think about Ben Stiller’s germaphobic declarations about bowls full of nuts in the movie Along Came Polly.

I couldn’t help myself and had to add one superfluous and hilarious terrarium, I mean, even minimalists need a conversation piece to shake things up, right?

Around the Web This Week: From Fab Offices to Sparkle

1. First of all, I’m happy to announce that Design Public has finally jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon. Be sure and follow Design Public on Pinterest! Who do you like to follow on Pinterest? I haven’t had a lot of time to delve into it, as I know it will be a huge time sucker, but right now I’m loving checking out Tobi Fairley’s pins.

2. Speaking of pins, a great place to find pin-worthy images of places that are available for you to rent is Airnb. We love the images of their new offices that we spied over at Office Snapshots:

The spaces are incredibly dynamic and diverse; one great pairing is this super-sleek white meeting area that uses Panton Chairs by Vitra. I love the contrast between the space above and the space below, which has some vintage granny chic happening. A way cool granny; one who hung out at The Factory back in the day but who also likes to get comfortable with a cat in her lap:

This is just a teaser; be sure to check out the full post for all of the surprising and beautiful spaces within their offices.

3. I loved getting a peek in Jamie Wyeth’s studio in Preservation magazine this month. I’ve admired the island it’s on from the shores of Tenant’s Harbor, Maine, many times, from the wonderful East Wind Inn, which has the most out-of-control, delicious coconut cream pie on the planet. By the way, when you become a member of The National Trust for Historic Preservation, you receive this beautiful and informative magazine.

That island to the left is Wyeth’s, the view is from the East Wind Inn’s porch. Wyeth gave the owner some wonderful work to decorate the beautiful dining room.

4. We’re keeping our eyes open for new ways to decorate for the holidays, and freshome has a great feature this week: 10 Ways to Bring Sparkle Into Your Holiday Home. One of my favorite things about the holidays is sparkle!

5. I’d like to give a shoutout to Brittany at Curvy Girl Guide for including the ever-squnchy, super-comfy, and always cute Fatboy in her fabulous Gift Guide for Kids! Also, I really wish they would make those Metallic Mocs for tots in adult sizes. They are the coolest! Here’s a peek at her picks, head on over to Curvy Girl guide to grab the links and order her recommendations.
