It would be a crime to hide these darling measuring cups in your utensil drawer. Leave them on the countertop to add a splash of color and personality to your kitchen.
My mother always said that if you don't tell people what you expect from them, they'll never know. This poster won't leave anyone guessing.
Sleek and modern with a side of kitch, this just might be my favorite butter dish ever.
All it takes is a fun splash of color to take a basic, industrial piece from drab to fab. I love the pop of red on the metal elements of this chair.
Adding personality to bookcases can be a tough task. When I stumbled upon these storage baskets, I immediately thought they would be great for adding a bit of pattern next to my classics.
Wouldn't you like to hang your hat on this cheery fellow every day?
This lamp would add a nice touch of whimsy to a little girl's room. The tiny teacup on top is definitely the icing on the cake.
Using an unconventional container for storing things can add some fun to a room. I like the idea of using this metal basket to store a stack of old books with matching bindings.
This little stool is so versatile! It could be a nightstand or a stool for the kitchen, or perhaps you can purchase a few and turn them into a coffee table. Wherever you decide to place it, it will no doubt brighten up your space with its cheery color and unique design.
I think it's safe to say that many of us shy away from large, bold patterns in our homes. Why not try out a big pattern in a small space? This butterfly shower curtain would be a good start. That way if you're not completely convinced with your choice, it's not something your guests will see every time they come in the front door.
These darling pillows bring new meaning to the phrase his and hers. If I had a guest room, they would definitely be adorning the bed.

Fabric dinner napkins generally make a meal feel more special. These linen, stamped napkins will make your next meal special and fun.
Desk accessories are usually boring and sterile. The neon accent on this leather mouse pad makes it the perfect piece to spruce up your home studio or office.
This metal arrow plaque could be hung in any room of your home to add personality. Perhaps it could point out a direction to the powder room or be intermingled with your favorite family photos.
Wall decals have been popular for a couple of years, but I've never seen such a pretty design as these falling feathers.
I believe that even small, everyday items should be beautiful and fun. This Milk Bottle Carafe is both.
Many would say that a mobile only belongs in a nursery. I think this wood mobile is so beautiful that it would be a great conversation piece for any room in your home.
