Currently Coveting: The Hibernation Edition

hibernation

It has officially been 8 months since my last currently coveting post, and I’m thinking it’s high time to bring this series back to light. And what better way to do so than with a board filled to the brim with the coziest of all cozy things.  As you can see, I’m more than ready to hunker down for the cooler months ahead. Give me a big ol’ mug of tea, some cable knit socks, and a stack of magazines and I’ll be happy as a clam ’til spring!

currently covetting: golden tipped

Currently-covetingIt’s funny, if you look at my “currently coveting” history (right here) you’ll note that many of the items are some form of dishware. There’s something about beautiful pottery that simply sings to me. And when they’re presented in the form of soft, feminine shades, topped off with gold tips? It’s simply pretty overload and I just can’t help myself. But let’s be honest here, can you blame me? One day I’ll venture out of my ceramic comfort zone, but until then, let’s just take a moment to oogle these goods. Because they’re so, so good.

I can’t really explain it, but I have a strange infatuation with dinnerware (mugs especially). And now that you probably think I’m sufficiently weird, I will keep going. When I first stumbled upon this new line of dishes I literally gasped at my desk. It has my name written all over it. It’s probably a blessing in disguise that we’re stuck with a teeny condo kitchen (that’s already packed to the gills) otherwise I’d find myself spending all my hard-earned money on place settings.

My co-worker and I joke about our ability to, without fail, find the most exorbitantly priced products in existence when searching for our clients homes. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that I fell in love with a $18,900.00 light fixture (the very first one up top). Stunning, yet unrealistic per usual. Please allow me to take a moment to gawk, at the very least! These babies make my eyes incredible happy, even if they don’t fit into any budget for the time being.

How incredible are these bowls, vases and vessels? I haven’t been able to get them out of my mind ever since spotting them a  few days ago. Inspired by erupted volcanos, the artist, Tabuchi Taro, has created these true works of art made entirely out of porcelain.

With all thoughts pointing towards our bedroom undertaking, I can’t help but be drawn to items that relate. While we’re not technically in the market for a new set of sheets, I can’t deny that I have my eye on these worn linen beauties. Unfortunately they’re not in the cards at the moment, but it’s always nice to dream.
ps: if you have a moment, you should head on over to check out my guest post on Anna’s blog, Canoe Design

Have a wonderful weekend!

retail therapy: mignon kitchen co.

I just can’t get over Rachel’s new online shop Mignon Kitchen Co. I must have gone back to it eight times yesterday just to peruse some more. With its focus on unique items for your pantry, pretty packaging supplies and beautiful items to adorn your table, all at a more than reasonable price-point, it just cannot be beat. Plus, the addition of the easy tips and tricks to help you bake add a lovely personal touch that I often find lacking when it comes to online shopping.  I, for one, am absolutely smitten.

ps: Make sure to check back this afternoon for a great giveaway!

It has been some time since I’ve posted something I’ve been currently coveting, but I can think of no better item to break the cycle than this beautifully designed tea kettle. With its stunning clear glass body and temperature control setting, it would be the perfect accompaniment to that afternoon tea session.

The fact that it’s designed to do away with any unnecessary energy consumption makes it all the more appealing. Its clear body allows you  to determine how much water you need to boil, eliminating any wasted water (and energy spent boiling said waste). Not to mention, you have the option to set the device to work towards a specific temperature (like 80 degrees, for example, the temperature in which you should steep green tea to avoid burning its leaves). I will always have a soft spot for an item that combines both form and function, and this kettle is no exception.

I’ll let you just take a moment oogle the goodies. These area rugs are outstanding. Superb even! (So superb that I’m even using the word superb). They’re almost too good to even end up on the floor!

I’ve had Sydney Hale’s Fig & Vanilla honey candle pinned on pinterest since the beginning of time (yes. time.) If I’m not mistaken, it may have been the very first thing that I pinned. The packaging is beautiful, and with scents like sea salt & bay rum and cypress & cassis it’s almost impossible to go wrong. Most recently, I got my hands on my much coveted fig & vanilla scent and I could not be more pleased. The scent is subtle but overwhelmingly delicious and the packaging is almost prettier in real life. I, for one, am a fan.

Cassie from The Veda House has recently launched her online store, market203, selling gently used vintage goods at incredibly reasonable prices. The girl has been working her butt off for the last few months and the results have surely paid off. I definitely have my eye on a number of items (hello pretty rustic boxes, wire baskets and vintage cheese jars) that would undoubtedly add that extra touch to my new home.

An unbelievably reasonable Leigh Viner print, (or an even more reasonable original! A few hundred for an original painting is pretty spectacular). How beautiful are these?! I can just imagine them in so many settings.

currently coveting: wooden shower head.

found here

 Being a self-proclaimed shower lover, this is one product that I could fully get on board with. When I say lover, I really, truly mean it. I often sit underneath the stream of steamy warmth for much longer than I’d care to admit (what, you don’t sit in your shower? My legs take a little while to function in the morning – don’t judge). While a good, long, hot and steamy shower is already on the top of my list of things that make me happy, adding this beautiful wooden shower head to the mix would be the icing on the metaphorical cake.

Happy weekend my loves! I’m off to Montreal to visit my brother. I’ll be gone for just the weekend and yet I’ve packed three scarves (and six shirts. shh). I think I need an intervention.

These pipes & fittings turned bookshelves: so clever! You bet your buttons I forwarded these images to my boyfriend who just so happens to be super handy and will surely throw together one or two of these bad boys for me. Right??

Happy weekend lovelies! And do us a favour, send us good vibes as we head out on a new apartment shopping adventure. Think: dirt cheap deals and golden vintage finds. Highly appreciated. xx

currently coveting: pretty tea cups.

 

images found here and here

In the past I’ve mentioned that I’m always an advocate for supporting local products, especially when they’re hand crafted and specially designed, and especially when they’re as stinkin’ cute as these guys. I’m even more of a fan of designer Ange-line Tetrault because she too went to OCAD. In fact, she’s still there finishing up her last year of industrial design. It’s like one lovely little art school world! I’ve noticed these mugs here and there around the interwebs and they just slay me every time. Who wouldn’t want a sweet little owl poking out of their almost empty tea mug? Nobody, that’s who.

If you’re in and around the Toronto area, you should come and take a look at Ange-lines work (along with a ton of other incredibly talented female designers) at the upcoming design show Capacity. I was fortunate enough to have gone to school with a number of the designers and I must say, these ladies ooze skill and you should prepare yourself for leaving with an armful of goodies. I’ll be there trying to convince myself that I don’t need any more tea cups.

currently covetting: a perpetual calendar.

found via Design Milk

Calouette, a design studio mixing architecture and product design, has come up with this pretty amazing perpetual calendar for us to feast our eyes on. Each piece of coloured acrylic has a different date carved into it and you simply need to release each sheet as the days of the year progress. You could even write important dates and milestones on each sheet, to remember each and every year.  A beautiful way to keep track of time and life’s important events.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American readers! Have a wonderful, wonderful holiday, and know that I’m over here feeling all jealous while sitting at work with my leftover pasta for lunch… and dinner (because I always make WAY too much pasta)
