Of course, it was necessary to find just the right accoutrements to complete the move back into the new home. I tried to incorporate as many of my old furnishings as possible by changing lampshades, updating knobs etc. Of course, there still were some things that had to be brought in order to complete to "look". While searching online, I found some exciting web sites that I share with you here. Happy shopping.
www.terrestra.com: I just love their Riverside sea glass dishes.
www.urbanadesign.com: A very chic and practical take on contemporary pieces to add to your home.
www.bongenre.com: Use these very stylish melamine plates instead of paper or plastic next time you have a soiree outdoors
www.sprouthome.com: When not in Chicago or Brooklyn to see the store in person, check it out online.
www.wisteria.com: No one edits or chooses more stylish products from around the world than this charming couple. I feel as if I know them by seeing what they select over the years.
Two of my favorite sources/designs for cabinetry hardware. I was so taken with the Sartre (perfect name) knob from Pacific Modern that I used it in my kitchen.
www.eco-artware.com: An interesting collection of “reuse” items. Got to have the motherboard luggage tags!
www.branchhome.com: I've included the “seatbelt” hammock photo here because it is so ingenious.
www.totallybamboo.com: Check out the bamboo backsplashes. Next house, I’m going to incorporate one these rich pieces.
www.greenlightconcepts.com: What can be done with old traffic light parts? Stunning lights for the home.
www.eatitworld.com: An interesting collection but limited collection of eco products. I am intrigued with the metal luggage.
www.environtrading.com: I am not convinced that the products here are all that enviro-friendly, but you have to check out their extensive closeout section for great bargains.
www.designpublic.com: I’ve enjoyed watching this online retailer’s selection grow. They seem to be nipping at DWR’s (Design Within Reach) heels in terms of product offerings. They are not all green, but they are all very cool.
