fly the coop...

i feel like flying the coop. i'm longing for the real world a bit & feeling island fever.
nothing a trip to target & some good mexican food wouldn't cure.
speaking of things that can fly- look @ these cool galvanized metal birds. i have them hanging in a cluster-love them. by the way, even a bird should have modern digs. loving this ceramic modern birdhouse.
maybe i just need to do a little nesting & settle in for the summer.

challenge. no 5 change

this week your design challenge revolves around change. having a good design doesn't mean you can't change it up every once & a while. try tweaking the things you love. change up your favorite pieces or moving your furniture. it can bring a fresh & new feel.
*thought you might want to see this new driftwood candle piece. remember- i blog new products daily. if you see something you love just send me an email. happy redesigning...


new bamboo wares: trays, small bowls, deep bowls, & low bowls. all finished with grey & neutrals on the outside. love them.

challenge no. 4 smart design...

each monday-i challenge you to create a home you love. challenge no. 4 is all about smart design.
a well designed home should be filled with things that serve multiple purposes. it simplifies us & makes sense. like using a great TRAY -it's not just to serve. a tray could be a table top on an ottoman or help organize all that stuff. i have tons of cool trays @ bungalow 9.
now-go, organize, and edit.
sometimes you have to rethink the obvious & learn to use items for multiple purposes. be smart!

adding metal surfaces...

when designing a modern space- it's important to add an element of metal. just by adding a shiny surface, your space can have a touch of glam. another options is adding stainless elements for an industrial feel. here's my pick- i'm loving this mercury glass lamp with bamboo shade. ( multiple sizes can be special ordered)

it's friday... bungalow 9's first friday tonight from 5-9. come buy your momma something good!
don't forget -say mamma leggett @ the register you get 15% off everything.
honestly, the week has gotten away from me & i've slacked on my daily blogging.
maybe it's because i've been unpacking new stuff. i'm in love with these
oversized lanterns. i would hang them inside over a dinning room table...
