Magnussen Ashby Bedroom Set

Magnussen Ashby Bedroom Set

A few months ago, I was looking at the bureau from this collection, not considering that I might be able to afford investing in the entire set. But now all 6 pieces are available for almost 30% off, which is basically unheard of for this brand! I'm absolutely loving the updated cottage appeal of this set, and am thinking the time is perfect for a Happy New Year's present to myself :)

But in all my armoire-loving days I have never seen one I love quite as much as this one. This suits my design aesthetic perfectly, and is practically begging to be filled with my clothes!

I have fallen in furniture love before, and I know the feeling of falling in love again! Pass me the champagne and remote control, dahling, for I am about to sip in style while watching Project Runway reruns. That's just how I roll. :)

As a huuuuuge fan of magazines, I always have them laying all over the floor just waiting to be slipped on. If you don't know, magazines on a berber carpet are the indoor equivalent of icy sidewalks! Perhaps something like this will help me clean up my act stylishly. Now where is that new issue of Self? I can't remember where I last slipped on it.

  • How amazing is this chair?! Not only is it award-winning and a fan favorite of everyone from MSNBC to Better Homes and Gardens, but it also has a storage compartment in the back and looks like a shiny piece of candy.

Not only is it award-winning and a fan favorite of everyone from MSNBC to Better Homes and Gardens, but it also has a storage compartment in the back and looks like a shiny piece of candy. A blue raspberry jelly bean, perhaps? Oh, and it's only $49. Yep! That got my attention, too. ;)

My niece is turning 14 soon and her parents are letting her update her bedroom to be more grown-up. She's super excited to let go of her old furniture and pop star posters, and has asked us all to buy her something nice for her new room for her birthday. Her parents are covering the furniture for the most part, but with everyone getting her something, she's probably going to have a much cooler room than any of us have or have ever had! I love this metal butterfly mirror, and I think it's the perfect balance of girly and grown-up. And it happens to only be $50, so I'm excited about that , too!

I've seen princess chairs in a lot of stores, but this one looks a lot nicer and better made than the competition. And, it's less than 60 bucks, free shipping! I think I found my Christmas gift for my 2 youngest nieces :)

I have always found mirrored furniture to be so glamorous and classy, I just haven't seen a whole lot of it in stores. I think it may be making a bit of a comeback as chic and sleek pieces like this seem to popping up in more places. Now I just need fabulous gowns to lay about the house in!

I am so tempted to put this on our wedding registry. I know it's supposed to be for kids, but it's sooo much more fun than adult furniture, and it's made by Powell, a company even my mother trusts! What do you guys think? If I let my fiance have a video game room and paint it black like he wants to, do I get to pick our bedroom furniture? (I secretly want the video game room too, but I *don't* want to paint it black!)

And that is exactly what has been done. And I want it. Ba... What's cooler than a bright, bold chair shaped like a humongous baseball mitt? Admittedly, not much! Unless you take that same chair and add multiple vibrations and speeds. And that is exactly what has been done. And I want it. Badly. Now. Please?

I love bold, fruity colors, especially for summer. My taste tends to lean toward cottage-y overall, but I also can't resist pieces like this that just make me want to eat rainbow sherbet and have friends over for karaoke. :) And it's less than 100 bucks...quite a bit less, actually!

  • I don't think I've ever seen an Offi lamp I don't love. They're just so cool.

I don't think I've ever seen an Offi lamp I don't love. They're just so cool. Like, if they were kids in school, they'd be the kids with the best hair, sweetest ride, most unique style, AND they'd actually be nice. Might even share a cupcake with you at lunch. Anyhoo, I want this. Mostly cause it's just plain awesome, but also cause it looks like stacked coffee cups, and coffee makes me happy.

  • How pretty and colorful is this little number?! And, wait for it...it's a great price, too! Less than $100 gets you this brilliant blue piece of summer, just waiting for a lazy Saturday.

Less than $100 gets you this brilliant blue piece of summer, just waiting for a lazy Saturday. Can someone hand me my misting fan, please? Ahhhh, yes. Oh, and a fresh glass of lemonade as long as you're up? Thank you, darling, you really are too good to me!

I love spending as much time outdoors as possible in the summer, but I also hate sweating (I know, it's a tricky situation!), and I have to be careful to keep my oh-so-Irish skin out of the direct sun as much as possible. I don't tan - I burn. And badly. So, I spend a lot of time under hats and patio umbrellas sipping iced tea and the occasional mojito! My favorite thing about this patio set is the swivel chairs, which let you easily move around to talk to others, and help prevent that awful sound of chair legs scraping on cement or bricks. Like nails on a chalkboard!

Someday, I hope to have a sweeping front porch on a stunning cottage-style New England home, where I can sit outside with my marvelous family (including puppies, of course!) sipping fresh-brewed iced tea and enjoying friends playing guitar and singing softly. Until then, this lounge chair will have to do! Of course, I'll take it with me when this all happens, as it will have weathered wonderfully and serve as the physical representation of my dreams, which will have come true. It's just that in the meantime, it may have to settle for a cramped balcony instead of a sweeping front porch :)

  • Outdoor furniture just got chic and sleek, ladies and gents! And this simple and stunning number is not only stackable and strong, but it's nice enough to use inside as well, which means inviting more people to Halloween and Chris... Outdoor furniture just got chic and sleek, ladies and gents! And this simple and stunning number is not only stackable and strong, but it's nice enough to use inside as well, which means inviting more people to Halloween and Christmas parties! :)

  • Love, Love, Love! Somehow Emeco manages to give each of their chairs such a unique personality, even though they're all fashioned from the same material. But I am not interested in the 'how' or 'why' - I just enjoy the outcome :)

This would be perfect for a smaller apartment, or just as an extra bed for overnight guests that doesn't take up a ton of space. And if you have a wood panelled room, it would practically disappear. Until you say "Voila!" and a bed appears, that is! (Disclaimer: Simply saying "Voila!" may not be enough. You might have to unfold it as well. I know, bummer. Bed's still cool, though.)

Maybe it was growing up in the 80s with Scooby Doo and all those 2-way spinning walls, or maybe it's my fascination with things that are not as they appear to be, but I have always wanted a wall bed. I just didn't realize how pretty they could be! You can even add side bookcases (the more bookcases the merrier!) so you can unfold your bed, grab a good read, and hope for magical dreams with hidden passages and no meddling kids ;)

  • In addition to this being my favorite color (green!) I love that the featured word for the drawer is "Laugh".

I love that the featured word for the drawer is "Laugh". I know there aren't a whole lot of people who don't love to laugh, but it's for real one of my favorite things. I legitimately try to find the humor in just about everything I can - it's not just some cliched thing I say on my Facebook. Plus, I adore cottage-style anything, and that's no joke!

  • Love this bench! I mean, it has "Love" right on it, how could I not? ;) I adore cottage style furniture, particularly in shades of yellow and blue, and I think this would look great as an entryway bench/place to put my keys.

Plus, it's only 80 bucks and ships free. That's a price I can "Live" with!

If only so I can listen to the song 'Blue Velvet' while I'm sitting in this chair, I want it! But, there's also the fact that it's absolutely stunning, with a beautiful velvet burnout fabric that is both unexpected and sophisticated. Oh, and I can afford it, too! That doesn't always happen when I want something. But this is less than $200! Not too shabby for a piece I can envision enjoying for many, many years.

  • I love a multi-function piece of furniture, and I love it more if it has a bright red velvet fabric!

I love a multi-function piece of furniture, and I love it more if it has a bright red velvet fabric! This would be great for my dog to snuggle up on by my feet (her keeping my feet warm is how she earns her keep!), and would also make great extra seating for parties and get-togethers. Plus, it's just fiercely fabulous, no matter what it's doing :)

  • In an ideal world, I would be half as cool as this chair. But alas, I'm just a dork with a fabulous eye for design! Seriously though, how cool is this chair? So cool, that's how cool!

Seriously though, how cool is this chair? So cool, that's how cool! Lately I've been on a chair kick, and either I just haven't noticed how many amazing chairs there always were, or furniture designers have been on a chair kick, too! Now I just need a few extra rooms to put all the lovely chairs in, and I'll be set.

I'm in love with every inch of this chair. Button back chairs have such a fabulous polish to them that I can't get enough of, and anything that even hints at zebra makes me smile - they're the coolest animals ever! But apart from the zebrawesomeness (just made that up!), it's also a fantastic price (well under $200), built to last with attention to construction details, and super sleek. Love <3

For some reason, funky furniture always seems to cost more than two months rent! But this hot pink piece of awesome is less than $80! It even has a super glossy finish that reminds me of a 1950's diner, which makes me think that whoever has one should always have a chocolate malt at the ready :)

While I have curbed my book-buying habit a bit over the past few years, borrowing from friends or the library instead of needing a new copy, I do still have quite an impressive collection of favorites, poetry books, reference books and the like. I don't want to have a houseful of smaller bookcases, but would love a cleaner, classier way to store them than in piles. This...is...it! I have never seen such a beautiful book library in any store, and I know I'll enjoy this for many, many years.

  • What can I say - I like to be comfortable! Call me crazy, but no matter how attractive a chair, couch or cushion is, if I don't say 'ahhh!' when I sit down, I don't want any part of it.

Call me crazy, but no matter how attractive a chair, couch or cushion is, if I don't say 'ahhh!' when I sit down, I don't want any part of it. So when it came time to look for a new recliner, I asked some fellow comfort-loving friends what they recommend, and Stratolounger was a name I heard more than once. While I did expect something cushy for my tushy, I didn't expect it to look so sleek! Recliners have apparently come a long way style-wise since I was last looking for one, and I'm super considering this model in sage suede. The free shipping doesn't hurt either :)

I tend to like opposite ends of the spectrum, particularly when it comes to colors, which is probably why I prefer very dark furniture *and* bright white furniture. There's no need for all that stuff in the middle! The color of this set is described as Midnight Merlot, which sounds positively gorgeous. And while the styling of the majority of the pieces is primarily clean and crisp, the curves of the bed have a whimsical quality that even looks like it would bring happy dreams!

My heart belongs to Magnussen's Ashby bedroom set, but this one is so fresh and unique I can't help but to give it a second (or third...or fourth!) look. This set is definitely modern, but it's not as stark or serious as so much modern furniture. It actually has an almost woven quality to it, giving it an unexpected basket-like look that I can imagine enjoying for many years. This set is also super on sale! Ahhh, decisions, decisions :)
