Cardboard Animal Heads

This is a shot of the wall across from my cube. It started with the cardboard buck. Then a white unicorn appeared. What's next? Get yours here.

TREND: Pom Pom Jewelry

Pom poms are not new, but they've become one of the hottest embellishement trends of the summer. Pom poms are a crafty part of the fiber arts trend and are easy to make, adding a punchy bit of color and tactility to any project. Pom pom jewelry inspiration can be seen on the runways and high end boutiques, and there is no end to the many DIYers offering tutorials on pom pom making. If you aren't the crafty sort, you can always get your pom pom fix on Etsy.

Designer Tissue: Isaac Mizrahi

My husband went to the store last night to pick up some items for dinner. I asked him to pick up some tissue, as we've all been sneezing due to allergies. He did good! He came home with a set of the most cool designer tissues I've seen. If you're like me, tissue box designs matter.
Kleenex asked designer Isaac Mirahi to create four new designs to the Kleenex Expressions line of products to help celebrate the brand’s 90th anniversary. Happy Anniversary, Kleenex!

While in the past, Kleenex brand has pulled design inspiration mainly from trends in home decor, inspiration for these special edition patterns was driven by the latest trends in fashion. According to the company, the four designs aim to evoke confidence and inspiration among consumers to help them express their personal style and step out of their comfort zones when it comes to incorporating the latest trends.

Perfect Summer Obsessions

Here are my top must-haves for making your summer trendy. Pink is a top color for summer. If you aren't a pink lover, choose pink as an accent color instead. Tribal influenced prints and patterns for home and fashion are everywhere. You can find vintage kantha, kilim, and suzani prints on Ebay or One Kings Lane, or opt for ikats and tribal influenced geometric patterns at retailers like West Elm. I'm absolutely in love with these pillows that are full of color and texture. Tassels and pom poms embellish everything from jewelry and bags to pillows and hammocks. Macrame wall hangings are a great addition to your living space, as they can bring color and interest to any room in the house. And finally, you will need a comfy, cool place to rest your body as you relax and take in the long summer days. Nothing says summer like a hammock or a hanging chair, and are well worth the indulgence. You can find them at Pier I imports or Etsy.
