Did you catch the sporty vibe in the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2012 collection? The relaxed look, poppy colors, and stripes in the collection instantly inspired me to look for sporty "separates" in the home decorating world.
To get the look, start with bright colors, such as the shades of blue found in the Nesting Side Tables & Step Stools by Areaware ($400, middle row, right). Also available in shades of green and charcoal, this set of three nesting tables each opens at the top, with safety hinged lids for inconspicuous storage.
Another favorite are the West Elm Pendant Cord Set ($30, top). You can add a colorful twist to industrial style, and customize the look by choosing all one color, or a variety to fit your needs.
