While the term “Industrial Chic” may at first conjure up visions of something mass made and sterile, this trend is anything but, instead focused on items that have a sense of history dating back to the early 1900’s when the industrial age first began. Metal plays a big part of the style with machined iron and steel paired with unfinished wood for a look that is delightfully nostalgic. We’re loving the look of adding one or two key pieces to transitional interiors, giving rooms an injection of the unexpected. Think accent tables or storage shelving that have a functional, chic “old factory” look, or the simple shapes of metal pendant lighting. These cool vintage inspired finds accent interiors with rustic, utilitarian style. Ready to add some personality to your rooms? Check out the latest in Industrial Chic

Clockwise from top: Silhouette Easter Eggs by Le Papier Studio, Square-Patterned Eggs by Martha Stewart, Chalkboard Eggs by The Red Thread, Monogrammed Place Marker Egg as featured in Ladies’ Home Journal
You’ve helped the kids create their own Easter eggs, now it’s time for mom to break out her mad crafting skills and blow everyone away at Easter brunch with eggs that are both functional (you CAN eat them after all) and decorative. Silhouette eggs nested together make for a charming accent placed at either end of the table, or bring a little sparkle in with glittered sticker eggs. Mark the place of each guest with their own monogrammed egg or jot a personalized message on a chalkboard egg. We’re also loving the idea of keeping little ones occupied during the meal by placing a few pieces of colored chalk tied with raffia beside their egg as a handy “blank canvas” to unleash their creativity on. Decorate, celebrate and eat up!

Fusion (n.) The union of different things by blending, merging or uniting, and the ideal description of what Bungalow 5 does so well. Taking classic, iconic Eastern and Western furniture and accessories, Bungalow 5 creatively reinterprets them for modern homes. The result is furniture that has a cool reference point to the past, echoing the details of Asian or French antiquities fused with a streamlined appeal and colors that pop. Here a reference point, there a familiar detail, pared down, recolored and reworked to create a line of furniture, lighting and accessories versatile enough to slip as comfortably into a traditional room as into a modern loft or sunroom.
