Build Your Block Pillows

These Build Your Block Pillows by Patrick Chirico were inspired by the various buildings found in Brooklyn. Pick the buildings and colors that you like most and you have your own little bit of New York City on your bed or sofa. The Mini Stuff is pretty cute too. (Should be noted that this would be great for kids and adults alike.)

InterAbstract Shower Curtain

To make a long story short, I had some horrible shower doors from the 1950’s which I removed after hating them for 2 years. I’m planning a rather large bath remodel which involves moving walls and basically redoing everything, so my goal was to make the current bath nicer with a budget of $100, knowing that I’ll be spending way more in a few months to build an entirely new bathroom.

After removing the shower doors, I needed a shower curtain that wasn’t too expensive and was also pleasant to look at. After looking through several hundred shower curtains (I’m obsessive, what can I say?), I finally found this little minimal beauty for under $20. I’m very happy with the purchase and more than likely I’ll keep it in the remodeled bath as well.

You will also need a plastic liner with this.

Paint Chip Quilt in Blue

Here’s a very nice handmade quilt on Etsy, and although it’s a smaller size (crib/throw), it’s proof that quilts can be quite modern if handled the right way. You can request a custom quilt with specific colors from the seller; expect prices to run from $300 to $1000 depending on the size.

100% cotton.

Enormous Moon Floor Cushion

Do you go crazy for moon-inspired products too? Are you close to losing it over this e-nor-mous floor cushion? If your home doesn’t have something crazy/nutty/childish, I think this would be good compromise. It’s the moon, in a floor cushion.

Huge, comfortable floor cushion with big thick moleskin-finish outer. Zipped.
Size 90cm x 50cm

Vertigo Bedding

I’m sort of loving the black and white stripes of the new-ish Vertigo Bedding. There’s something so simple about building on a base of black and white… with this duvet, you just need to add an extra pillow in a nice accent color, maybe a throw at the end of the bed for softness/texture, and ta-da, your bedroom is finished off. Also, the same stripes are available in a wallpaper (Vertigo Wallpaper), which I plan to post soon.

De La Espada Pillows

Check out these new pillows from De La Espada. Sure, they’re quiet in terms of color and pattern, but sometimes you need that in a room, especially if you have other pieces that tend to overwhelm. Personally, I’m pretty taken with the Chicken Wire Cushion ($180.00) because of the pattern and slightly undercover country vibe. Small Jax Cushion ($145.00) shown on left.

Bedtime Story Pillowcase Set

White pillowcases seem so boring when competing against David Shrigley’s version. With these you’ve got a built-in bedtime story for whenever your brain just doesn’t have the energy to make up its own, which is probably often, am I right? I’ve long liked Shrigley’s stuff and certain items seem to be the perfect sort of gift for those that appreciate hand drawn text and such. Also, if you like the look of these pillowcases, don’t forget about the Miranda July pillowcase set, which is equally delightful.

Ethnic Cushions

These patterned cushions had me at hello. Too bad they don’t quite mesh with my current living area color scheme. Maybe they’ll match yours?

Elsie Dodds

I’m more than a little taken with these alphabet cushions by Elsie Dodds. Each cushion is decorated with all sorts of imagery attached to a particular letter which is printed on the reverse. It’s up to you whether you find it appropriate for your living room or for someone learning their ABCs, and maybe for some of you it’ll be both.

Commune Nap Bag

If you’re lucky enough to not bat an eyelid at the price of this Nap Sleeping Bag, good for you. For the rest of us, we’ll take note of the wonderful idea of having a sleeping bag specifically for taking naps or picnicking on, especially one with stripes and plaids such as this one, and file it away for a future DIY project.
