Green Idea of the Week: Coffee Bag Chic

Sometimes we design bloggers get worn out. We look at so much design all day that it takes a lot to impress us; sometimes nothing seems new. Sometimes I think if I hear “Hollywood Glamour” or “Brooklyn Modern” one more time I might just throw up, and those are two styles I actually like.

Then there are some times when you go on a virtual house tour that gets you really buzzing with excitement again. This was the case when I saw Alysia’s Treehouse by the Lake on Apartment Therapy L.A. Alysia’s decorating philosophy was inspired by The Recycled Home by Sally Bailey. She begged, borrowed, swapped and repurposed. One of the best results was this ottoman she reupholstered with an old coffee bean sack a local roaster gave her.

In case you missed it, here’s a great link to Aparment Therapy’s Complete Composting Guide. I’ve been thinking of getting a worm composter for my brother for his birthday and did not know where to start. Lo and behold, I was browsing AT and all my questions were answered. Check it out here.

Lights Up! Gets Some Apartment Therapy Love

I have absolutely no time to read all my favorite blogs this week and construct a post with my favorite links, but I was excited to see the Meridian Pendant in mumm by Lights Up! receive some AT love the other day. I originally bought this lamp for my own home at DRTC here in Atlanta, and when Drew, a founder of Design Public came to visit, I showed it to him and told him we simply must find out the vendor and carry it at DP. That was years ago, and the graphic prints of the Lights Up! fixtures are still going strong.

In following the AT Before/After story of the Lights Up! owners Nick and Kate (photographed above), I followed the trail to another favorite blog, Door Sixteen. Apparently, Nick and Kate inquired about the pendant lamp they spied in Door Sixteen’s New Years Eve Party Post, which is this lovely piece from another favorite of mine, Mibo. The uber-renovators over at Door Sixteen led Nick and Kate over to Design Public, where they eventually picked out their mumm Meridian Pendant Lamp.

I’m starting to feel like Elaine on Seinfeld typing all of these exclamation points. When I actually take the time to edit my own posts (which is, ah, ahem, not that often, usually after I’ve posted and read it live and say “oh crud, this post is a disaster.”), I find myself cutting out exclamation point after exclamation point, so you are kind of killing me right now, Lights Up!(!!!)!
