Brand Spotlight: Kahler Design

If you don’t know Kähler, you’re going to want to get to know them. The iconic Danish ceramics company has been making museum-worthy pieces since 1839. Don’t let the pedigree scare you though; the Kahler pieces you’ll treasure forever are still handmade by artisans yet are reasonably priced.



Hand-painted stripes mark the classic Omaggio line by Kähler. A variety of shapes and sizes in a range of colors, the vase collection is made for all sorts of leaves, branches and blooms.



Omaggio will dress your table with style as well. A favorite is the crisp contrast of black and white with lovely wooden details like the butter dish’s top.


As an interesting side note, Kähler more recently expanded from making serveware to serving regional Danish specialties in their restaurants in Denmark.


The Botanica vases have beautiful colored glazes that reflect the light.

Watch Kähler being made:



Kähler’s Urbania lantern’s windows glow on the table.




Speaking of glowing,Kähler has a variety of playfully shaped candleholders.


Kähler’s Ora Table Clock adds sweet charm to any table or bureau top. It comes in white, black, pigeon blue and rose.

I love the way Flickr Member Sweet Something Design has arranged this tablescape. It has a bold graphic base, between the black and white tablecloth and bold green tray. It adds natural elements via the white tulips and coral, and some vintage ephemera underneath the magnifying glass. It’s a perfect balance – Bravo! Thank you for adding this shot to our Fresh New Spaces Group!

Inspriation Monday: Gettin’ Woodsy


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

Today I’m off to a very slow start, I blame stupid “spring ahead.” In better news, the clock in my car is accurate for the first time in six months so I’ll have to remember to stop doing math and that I’m no longer running an hour early. Today I got thinking about groovy, funky wood. The kind of panels you might see in an original Sea Ranch house, or in some sixties cottage on Fisher’s Island or in Truro or Welfleet on Cape Cod. Wood is back big time, whether it be live edge counter tops, faux bois lampshades, driftwood coffee tables or even a that thing that keeps your iPhone from shattering. I’ve rounded up a few favorite wood and wood-inspired products from the site to share with you:

Flickr Faves on Fridays: Fresh Blooms


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

don't feel too bad.

This flickr fave comes from the amazing and talented Victoria, a.k.a. sfgirlbybay. She’s such a blog superstar that it always gives me a little jolt when I see she’s bothered to contribute to our Fresh New Spaces group! This picture is for those of you that still are not seeing a bud on a tree and still expect snow, and to remind you that blossoms can warm up and cheer you no matter how cold it is outside. For some of us, it’s a perfect time to clip some branches and force those flowers out indoors.
