Current Obsessions: Found Art

Issue 15 · Shades of Pastel · April 19, 2014

This past week, we looked at a DIY kitchen overhaul for under $500 and bunny decor for the design-minded. With Earth Day looming, we're dedicating our next issue to eco-friendly and sustainable living. Until then, take a look at a few things we've got on our minds.  

Hanna Eshel Loft | Remodelista

No need to use chemicals this Easter; dye your eggs naturally with a How-To from Real Simple.

Saturday Night Live's Cecily Strong gets some home decorating help from the stylists at West Elm. 

Sherry and John at Young House Love recently revamped their office (clever couple; they used a shade from our Happiness-Inducing Paint Palette).

Neon Rain Detail Wallpaper | Remodelista

Perfect for spring tables: Jadeite Plates made since 1959 in Ohio of hand-pressed glass. You can also find a bonanza of Vintage Jadeite on Etsy.

We wouldn't mind downsizing if it were in any of these Tiny Houses
