Soga Wood Shelf by ACSOB

I’m currently working on opening an online store.  It will feature handmade home decor like dreamcatchers, woven wall art and wood shelves.  It will also have handmade garments and illustrations.

Here is the Soga Wood Shelf.  I will be making different variations of it but I wanted to show a sneak peek.  Hope you love it!

DIY Colorblock Napkin Rings

What you’ll need:

  • plastic shower curtain rings
  • a few colors of embroidery thread
  • glue gun
  • scissors

Gather the ends of all colors of the embroidery thread. Line up the ends carefully and, using a very small dot of hot glue, affix them to the inside of the shower curtain ring. Make sure that they lead toward the portion of the ring that snaps closed (this will be the backside of your napkin ring).

Begin wrapping your first thread. Choose the color that you’d like at the back of the napkin ring. Wrap it repeatedly around the ring and the other threads, hiding the snap on the ring and the additional thread colors. Wrap until you’d like your next color to start. Simply choose a new thread and begin wrapping that one, again hiding all other threads.

Continue wrapping all the way around the ring…

Wrap the final color until it meets your first thread. Use a very tiny dot of hot glue to secure the thread to the inside of the ring and snip the end.

You’re done!  Enjoy!

At Home: Erin Wasson

There’s nothing better than loving the space you live in; getting home after a hard, long day at work and feeling comfy and relax in a cool place.  I recently moved in to my 1st apartment and I quickly became obsessed with interior design and with buying any decor that caught my eye.   That’s why I want to dedicate a new section of my blog to showing very cool spaces of people around the globe.

So here is my 1st post for this new section called At Home, this time featuring model/designer Erin Wasson’s awesome home.  Enjoy:

Training Dresser

The drawers of this children’s dresser designed by Seattle product designer Peter Bristol are shaped to match their contents. The graphics help children learn to find or put away their clothes.

Show your stripes

If you have ever met me, then you probably know how obsessed I am with stripes.  A striped top is like a white blouse and black trousers, it must be a staple in your closet hands down.  You can dress them up or dress them down; use on accessories or maybe as decor for your home.

Living room pool

Having a pool (with a swing no less) in the living room is one fantasy many of us could only daydream about. But for Evelyn McMurray Van-Zeller, this fantasy has turned into a reality.

In 1995, Ms. McMurray Van-Zeller was living in Europe when she inherited the Manhattan home from her brother. “You feel like you’re on a permanent holiday,” she says. “There’s almost no reason to leave the house [with] the pool, the sauna [and] the gym.”

The 15-by-30-foot pool is eight-feet deep and was installed in 1975 by previous owners. The pool level has a brick wall and is surrounded by granite flooring and living-room furnishings. Ms. McMurray Van-Zeller said the artwork, antiques, medieval weaponry and plantings in the adjoining atrium give the space a “cave-like, medieval, Moroccan look.”

If you’re rolling in dough and absolutely need this 5,000 sq ft house (did we tell you it’s a six bedroom, five bathroom property?) it’s currently on the market for a cool $10.95 million.
