Since my shower curtain is neither in the best shape nor very visually appealing, for last week's Casa Craving Challenge, I asked you to hunt down and bookmark some styling shower curtains. I told you they could be comic-book inspired or covered in moss roses, made of plastic, or made of cotton, so long as they were styling! I have to say I'm impressed with the results; now it'll be even harder to pick one out for my bathroom! Check out the widget to see everyone's fab finds.
For this past week's Casa Craving Challenge, I asked you to hunt down and bookmark your favorite coffee tables. They didn't even have to be coffee tables per say: ottomans, benches, and other objects were fair game as well. Well, color me impressed, because you found some amazing coffee tables that I'd never seen before, from hip tables made from skateboard decks to sublimely sophisticated walnut pieces. I also really loved this Spiral Cocktail Table by Blaise Gasto, made from slabs of bubinga-veneered plywood. Kudos to Wrrnsgal for the cool find! For the rest of the great coffee tables, take a look at the widget below.
Well, the gorgeous sunny days here in San Francisco have continued, and all of this Spring-like weather has me eager to welcome the season into my home. I wanted to start with my tabletop landscape, so, for this week's Casa Craving Challenge, I asked you to hunt down and bookmark your favorite springy placemats. They could be plain and colorful or utterly drenched in flowers, so long as they evoked Spring in your home. Take a look at the widget below for all of the great finds.
For this past week's Casa Craving Challenge, I asked you to hunt down and bookmark your favorite green vases. They could be simple and small or big and intricate. The vases didn't have to be completely green, as long as they had some green tones or green designs within the vases. I was especially fond of the small leaves vase ($65) that Mamafog bookmarked (in the picture above). Take a look at the widget below for the rest of the excellent finds.
I hate having things plugged in next to my head when I'm sleeping, and I hate the glowing digits of digital alarm clocks even more. Thus, I've been on the hunt for a good alarm clock for a while now, but I haven't found anything yet that really inspires me to shell out some cash. In light of these facts, for last week's Casa Craving Challenge, I asked you to hunt down and bookmark the best-looking, coolest, most retro, or most contemporary alarm clocks you can find. You chimed in to my call for clocks with some seriously cool choices, like the Kate Spade Perry Street Clocks that TeamSugar member Gruaig_Rua bookmarked. See the other time-tellers below.
Don't tell my boss, but lately all I've wanted to do is go home, curl up on my couch with a bucket of popcorn, and catch up on old episodes of Lost. So, for this week's Casa Craving Challenge, I asked you to hunt down and bookmark the best-looking, softest, most-comfortable throws you could find — a necessity for TV marathons. Cheers to Niny, who bookmarked The Slanket, a gigantic fleece blanket with sleeves! Check out the widget below to see what you rounded up.
For some reason lately, I've been on a Moroccan kick. I love the unique conical shape of Moroccan tagines, the antique patina and interesting shadows of the country's chandeliers, the one-of-a-kind quality of their kilims, and of course their graphic-embroidered poufs. So, for this week's Casa Craving Challenge, I asked you to hunt down and bookmark the best-looking Moroccan home accents and furniture you can find. Special thanks to Abeethousand for all of her fab finds.
For this week's Casa Craving Challenge I asked you to tag gorgeous velvet furniture that inspired winter hibernation. I was inspired by the drop in temperatures and the rainy days we've had here in in San Francisco, which had me feeling like a hermit. All I wanted to do was curl up on some gorgeous piece of furniture, sip some peppermint tea, and watch the rain from the safe confines of my home.
Casa readers took up the challenge and rounded up some great velvet furniture. Take a look at the widget below for all of the great finds.
Given my love for everything ikat, I was of course smitten with this set of 4 Napoleon III side chairs (circa 1860), with their ebonized wood frames and sumptuous silk Ikat fabric.
For this week's Casa Craving Challege I asked you to find a table that could stand up stylistically to these amazing chairs. And if you were so inclined, I also encouraged you to go on to find table accessories, such as candleholders, centerpieces, floral arrangements, and glass and tableware that would work with the chairs. Take a look at some of the great finds below!
