This Week’s Field Guide is all about how we can amicably cohabitate with our collector toys.

I don’t know about you, but we can’t resist a good collector toy. There’s just something about them. The problem is how do you live with them, and where do you put them? Do you gang them all up (tried that), or do you display just one at a time (but which one)? At some point they just become a bunch of bric-à-brac around the house. I’ve never felt comfortable relegating them to a curio cabinet type situation though. These guys might have found the balance.

This week’s Field Guide is a collection of stools.

We are moving in to our new space at the end of the month, and we are mentally organizing furniture. We’ve never had a bar in our kitchen before, so we have been thinking about purchasing some stools. During my search, I saw stools not only as bar chairs, but as desk chairs, dining room chairs, and plant stands. All great ideas. Here is some inspiration; I am really liking the Monarchy rocking stool, it would be great by the door to put on shoes.

This week’s Field Guide is all about the color black, with a little white thrown in the mix too.

There is something really beautiful about the way homes look without all those extra colors. I’m really drawn to sterile looking homes, but the “homeyness” seems missing sometimes. These spaces really proved me wrong. They may lack a variety of color, but they feel incredibly warm. I hope that we can come close to capturing this feeling in our future home.

This week’s Field Guide is all about botanicals.

It’s spring again, and that means I’m ready to cover the house in flowers and other plants. I’m especially loving unconventional ways of displaying them, like the baby’s breath. Here are some other great ideas to brighten up your home with botanicals.

This week’s Field Guide is all about candlesticks.

Candlesticks are quite lovely, lit or not. The way you store them can be beautiful; I love the idea of having a jar of candlesticks around as decoration. If you don’t have a vase on hand, they’re a great place to put florals. Here are a few other ways to use them, and a few candlestick holders as well.
