What Our Children Will Be Buying on Ebay

I found these amazing screen printed art pieces in a little shop and thought I had won the lottery. Made in the charming little beach town of Grand Haven,MI they have loads of style and are so incredibly cheap! Did your parents have the nature themed screen prints on linen by the artist Marooshka? This is the same family 30 years later! Check out these fabulous new classics at The Art Farmer. -dann

Not-So-Risky Business

In case you haven't already noticed, the Wayfarer (and anything like it) has made a huge comeback. A couple years ago these may have been risky, but this season it's hard to go anywhere without seeing someone donning these puppies. Whether you're going for preppy or heroin-chic, this classic style cannot miss this season. Above are some of my favorites, the Ray Ban Wayfarer II, the Cape Town by Alex & Chloe, the Rose '83s by Costalots, and these bright beauties by Super. -ian

This Season's "It" Handbag

If Sex and the City was still filming, I'm sure that SJP would have shed her designer bags this season and replaced them with this season's "It" accessory, the reusable shopping bag. Some bags like the Feed bag are reusable and also raise money for a good cause. Some bags make a statement (literally) like the bags from Greenhome, or inject a little glamour into green like this one from ScoopNYC. Then there is this super cool bag from Hable Construction that could double as a decorative accessory. Lets lose the Prada and try something with a soul! -dann

Chair+Pillow+Floor Lamp

I love putting these vignettes together. I feel alive when there is tension in an interior!!! Maybe I should see a therapist...Maybe you should have some tension in your life. Enter the Lyla chair from Oly. This chair could live in any interior based on the pillow it held. My choice is this fabulous skull pillow from Hable Construction. When you mix two opposing styles like this, add the "little black dress"of floor lamps, the spun floor lamp from Design Within Reach. -dann
