Some home decor favorites

Crate and Barrel is a great furniture manufacturer, and I've heard from a lot of people (even carpenters), that if you can't afford to go custom, than go Crate and Barrel. The quality is consistently great, and the price is what you'd pay for some not-so-great quality furniture from similar companies. They also have clean design - which is a major plus!--okay, a major necessity!

I *love* the Windham writing desk in white! It's so clean and pretty!

A Crate & Barrel classic - the very cool Ona pitcher

I really really want these cushions in white! I want to put two side by side and use them as a headboard. Anyone know where I can find them in white?

A retro cool toaster from Bodum. Bodum is in my building and they had a sample sale last week, but sadly - and as usual, I had no cash

Bamboo dish racks are the best by far. I love mine cause I just fold it up flat and put it in a cupboard when I'm done. Unfortunately it's falling apart - but this would make a lovely replacement!

This pretty Optic sea glass lamp is only $89, and comes in three colors! This would be great for anyone with a coastal theme going on.

I LOVE Crate and Barrel! They just opened up a really big one by my house, 2 levels of heaven! I hadn't heard that their furniture was that great of quality. SO great to know for when it's time to buy new furniture!

I really like Crate & Barrel. I miss having one around here. When we lived in California I loved to go browse around. Now I have to browse online - not quite as fun.

I liked your picks!

Haha... it almost sounds like they're bribing you to put in a good word for them. If I didn't love them so much too, I'd be running the other way wondering what happened to you.

I love C&B -- even their "ready to assemble" stuff is good quality.

I'm not sure if they have it in white, but I did see a gray floor cushion almost identical to the C&B one when I was at West Elm last Sunday.

I love C&B that pitcher is one of my favorites!

How great does it look with those limes? I love adding limes and lemon to my water all the time and it makes that image look so crisp.
