Ferm Living Spring/Summer 2015

I’m looking forward to these great new pieces from Ferm Living for spring. Royal blue and Rose are the highlighted colors for the season, and while it’s the pink for girls and blue for boys type of thing, when Ferm Living puts their spin on it, you don’t even notice.

Ferm Living Kids SS 2015

There are new cushions, blankets, and three sets of house blocks.

My favorites are Little Mr. Teddy and Little Ms. Rabbit.

The block sets are Blue, Grey and Rose, but really, don’t you just need all three?

You’ll be able to find these new kids pieces as well as the rest of the SS2015 collection in the US & Canada from Clever Spaces.

Rich or Reasonable: Tree Coat Racks

Every day I see someone has repinned this wonderful image of these Swedese Wall-mounted Tree Coat Stands. The image comes from a beautiful house tour on decor8 but I did manage to find some US sources for these. The cheapest I found was at Century House Inc. at $530 for the small one and $665 for the tall one.

Swedese Tree Small Coat Stand

For some, the drama provided by these beauties might make it worth the cost, but I can understand that for most, $1200 is prohibitive.

Swedese also makes a free standing version of the tree coat stand, but the price of that isn’t any easier.

Tree Coat Rack

A less expensive alternative is the Little One’s Clothes Tree from P’kolino.

I know, it’s not quite the same look, but it is a cute little decorative coat rack nonetheless.

For a more grown up version, try the Adjustable Branch Coat Tree from The Container Store. $60

A more rustic version of the wall mounted Tree Clothes Rack is this one from Urban Outfitters from $98.

I also like the idea of using a simple tree wall decal and attaching wall hooks over the top.

Or even simpler, how about a washi tape tree with hooks?!

Marsala: Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015

I know 2014 is coming to an end because Pantone just announced the next color of the year. For 2015, they’ve chosen Marsala, “a daringly inviting tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind and soul.” Sounds like a delicious way to start off the new year. If you’d like to add this “hearty, yet stylish” pinkish brown to your home or nursery, here are my best suggestions.

This was not an easy task, as wine shades aren’t typically used for kids products. While office chairs in shades like Marsala are plentiful, it may take a while before we find this tone in more higher-end design. Once we do however, it’s a really easy color to work with.

Pantone 2015 Color of the Year Marsala

1- Bungalow 5 Tanjila lamp- $375 to $480
2- Dusty Rose Pillow Cover from Sophies Bazaar- $44
3- Jess Brown Doll – Rosa- $180
4- Everyone’s Lost But Me from todo TADA- $10+
5- 3 Sprouts Snail Storage Caddy- $15
6- Faux Leather Storage Basket – Burgundy- $15
7- babyroues letour II Bassinet and Stroller Black Frame System- $500
8- Antigua Jute Rug- $55 to $609
9- Axis II Chair- $1100
10- Southwestern Pouf in Maroon and Blue- $239

Chloé Fleury

I should have introduced you to Chloé Fleury’s shop long ago, but since she’s having a moving sale this weekend, I thought now’s a good time to make up for the omission.

Her inspiring nursery was shared online far and wide,
