Sometimes I forget how much I love getting a package from Design Public. Yesterday I received my Thomas Paul Zebra Canvas Pillow in Java and I could not be more thrilled. I scored it through our outlet, and the only sacrifice I had to make was that the box had been opened. Big whoop.
By the way, I just had that door installed last week and it still needs to be painted and I need to get some hardware that is not bottom of the barrel, so don’t judge! At least there is no longer a breeze coming straight through the old hollow bungalow door from the ’40s that it replaced.
Anyway, There are lots of great scores to be had in the Design Public Outlet. Right now we’re having a blowout. These items are samples and returns. They are “as-is” and all sales are final, but the most common condition granting the big discounts is “Opened Box.” Again, big whoop. In return for these stipulations, items are marked 40-80% down right now for our big blowout. You can find just about anything from bedding to barstools, lighting to area rugs. I’m eyeing this phone by Jaspar Morrison:
While I saw this in our Fresh New Spaces Group, I had already seen it in sfgirlbybay earlier this week. Victoria has painted her room “Gravel Gray” by Benjamin Moore (BTW, she says it’s not quite as dark or as blue as it is appearing in her photographs). She’s also sleeping on DwellStudio’s Chinoiserie bedding. Finally, she’s looking for some input on which artwork to buy for this room. Check it out and chime in on her post!

Getting the kids to stay seated at the kids’ table is one of the most challenging tasks of any parent during holiday festivities.
Whether you’re a parent or simply a host to guests with children, these 3 kiddie table ideas will help you keep those tiny bums in their seats!
1. Available in playful and grown-up prints, these placemats from Modern-Twist are “the bee’s knees.” Nurturing the inner artist in every child, the mats are doodle-friendly with the use of washable or dry erase markers.
2. Make the kids feel like important guests. Use these adorable picture frames from DwellStudio as place cards.
3. Use craft paper instead of a table cloth and let the kids go wild with the new DwellStudio Stamp Sets. Available sets in Baby Farm, Baby Zoo and Baby City.
"I just discovered your site yesterday (and I'm already ordering from it!) I even forwarded it on to a friend. I was giving up on finding bedding that I liked, so it's nice to know there are others out there who appreciate a mod(ern) sensibility. And your rugs are too die for!"
