weekend wishlist: uncommon goods
Since we moved in to our new place a few weeks ago, we've working non-stop to de-blue the space. The seller had painted the whole place (even the closets and bathrooms!) a very sad shade of blue-gray that I have been calling "Eeyore Blue." Many, many coats of primer later, our living room is finally super white and ready for us to start working on the design and decoration of the space, not just the sad wall color. This is where Uncommon Goods comes in to help freshen up our home decor.
one: Micro-Green Kits. We finally have some outdoor space, so I'm excited to see what we can actually grow on our fairly windy balcony.
two: The Bicycle Encyclopedic Print. My beloved Linus is stored downstairs with all his bicycle cousins, but this print combines three of my favorite things: clean graphics, encyclopedias, and bicycles.
three: Geometric and Honeycomb Pillows. Our collection of assorted couch pillows could really use an upgrade. And obviously the answer is hexagons.
four: Vintage Camera Pillows. Another acceptable answer to the pillow question is vintage cameras.
five: Photobotanicus Fern Statement Pillow. Since my mister is a bit plant-obsessed, this ferny pillow would fit right in.
six: Rope Knot Doorstop - Twine Ball. Since we live in a highrise, the corridor to the elevator is pressurized, so when we open the balcony door we create a serious wind tunnel.
seven: Astral Wall Hangings. These are just so pretty and have a great mid-century cocktail hour vibe.
p.s. This post is sponsored by Uncommon Goods, but I wholeheartedly support their mission to have a positive impact in the world and their workplace. I am all for fair wages and gorgeous objects.
