There are two things in my life that I’ve always dreamed of doing: having a no-holds-barred shopping spree for my home and breaking thousands of dollars in expensive china. Since I have yet to find a store that would allow me to do the latter, I’ll stick with the shopping spree. And of course, with a bank account like mine, window shopping via the internet will have to do for now. Here are my top Crate & Barrel picks for my dream home. (Just a reminder: donations are always welcome).
With their cheery design and vibrant color, this set of Bird Wall terra cotta tiles makes me want to frolic around outside. While that may not be good for my working habits, I have a feeling they could brighten up any room – even an office.
I love unique pieces, and this Tambe Espresso coffee table and side table definitely fit the bill. With well-hidden cubby holes for books, they’d be a nice addition to any living room.
The Axis Right Arm Chaise encourages lying down in the middle of the day, which makes it my kind of furniture. Comfort trumps everything else in my home, so the fact that this piece is stylish makes me want to whip out my credit card and buy it right now.
Since I already have a collection of magazines too big for my own good, this Invisible Magazine Rack would be just perfect for me. Not only is it a great organizational tool, but it’s an easy and inexpensive way to add a little bit of color to the room.
I could write a novel about all the purchases I would make for my home if only my finances were more flexible. But it’s only a matter of time before I have that perfect Crate & Barrel pad.
