The Friday Five: White at Williams Sonoma

As I sit here on a Friday night with a broken washing machine (again), a slightly sore throat, and a pile of marking to get started on, I’ve opted to forget my worries, procrastinate, and finally write my Friday Five post. Oh, adulting is fun sometimes, isn’t it?

My Internet travels have taken me to Williams Sonoma, and the shop has so many pretty items. Have a look at these five.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Design: Round Mirrors

Round mirrors are so versatile. They’re great above bathroom vanities, bedroom dressers, and foyer consoles. Perhaps these photos will inspire you to use one in your own home.

The Friday Five: Making Coffee

What type of coffee do you drink? Are you more into the pour over than the drip? How does espresso fit into your life?

The Friday Five: Dinnerware

I’m on the hunt for dinnerware. I know I want a white collection but I’m not sure if I should go for round or square, detailed or plain.

Marketplace: Beverage Dispensers for Summer Entertaining

It seems to me that a good-looking beverage container is one of the most coveted items for summer entertaining. Here are two that I saw at Sablétine last week in Waterloo, Ontario.

Hello Lonny!

If you haven’t already heard, issue 4 of Lonny magazine is now online. Lonny’s many pages are full of delightful interiors, interesting articles, and great art. I’ve been a fan since issue 1 and although I still prefer the texture of magazines (as in the ever-popular Domino), Lonny has been a wonderful addition to my online reading adventures.

Here are some of the white pieces I bookmarked as I “flipped” through the pages of this online treasure.

Elsa Peretti thumbrint bowl, $175, Tiffany & Co.

White flower stool, $390, Green with Glamour

Pail, $22, The Laundress

Shag pouf, $385, Calypso

Ostrich brush, $60, Caldrea

Globo di Luce pendant (in silver), $93-$1332, Design Within Reach

Folding bird house, $50, MOMA

Ceramic countertop compost pail, $32, Williams Sonoma

Many of these products come in other colours so if you’re not in love with white (gasp!) then you might want to check out the other options.
