This week's episode of 9 by Design featured a Smeg refrigerator, and of course I was in love with it's retro charm. Here are some more photos I've found here and there. Depending on the pricing, it might even replace Big Chill on my wish list. It's a tight race!

Super Desserts

I saw an incredible local band tonight! Seriously, I absolutely loved their "craft-pop" sound. Check out Super Desserts here. Definitely buy their record, Banjo Forever. Isn't the cover design fabulous? They win.

Kate Spade Organizer

Why didn't I buy this in January!? I hate half-filled planners, or I would absolutely get it now. It's just delightful.

Rosehill Cottage

It was a dreary, slightly rainy day in Columbus and for some reason that inspired me to watch The Holiday. It's actually more of a Christmas movie but why not, right? I have always been in love with Iris's charming cottage, tucked away in the English countryside. After a little searching on the internet, I found some shots of the set here on Maggy Moon Interiors. She has done a whole post of her favorite movie sets, and it's definitely worth checking out.

I fell in love with how cozy this space is! Despite how tiny it seems on film, the creams and pastels paired with touches of dark wood really open up every room. The fabrics like the crushed velvet on the ottoman and the soft white blanket thrown over the Edwardian chair in the library give the set such a warmth. The best part is, these elements feel very luxe-on-a-budget, which is exactly what I need. I am taking notes for my new apartment this fall!

Now, Voyager!

I am obsessed with this luggage set! It's the complete Cruise collection from Globe-Trotter, a company that makes gorgeous hand-made luxury luggage. Definitely out of my price range, but can't you just imagine Bette Davis in Now, Voyager carrying these as she boards the cruise ship that will change her fate forever? I'm so happy that you can still buy beautifully crafted luggage like they used to make. Now about that price tag...

Amazing Small Space

If you are a city dweller, you are likely trying to make the most of a very small space. Apartment Therapy is hosting a Teeny Tiny Division of their Small Cool Contest, and this particular space caught my eye. It is a super small 1930's cottage in Sausalito, CA and the interior styling is fantastic. I love the use or color to enhance the space. The owner, Beth, really made the most of a 350 square foot space.

Do you have an incredibly rad small space you'd want to enter to the Small Cool Contest? Entry for the 2010 Contest ended on April 19th (sorry!) but keep your eye out for next year's contest. Go here for more details!

Paper Show

I had an absolutely amazing time at the RIS Paper Show today in Columbus. I am now the proud owner of thousands of samples, and I can't wait to take lots of photos of them to show you all. I can, however, show you these two awesome large-scale prints I scored from French Paper Company, who by far had the best goodies of the day. It was seriously like trick-or-treating for adults!

Balcony Gardening

Spring is here, or at least trying to be, and it's gotten people in Columbus, Ohio very enthusiastic about gardening. Once again, I am struck with the dilemma of living in a tiny apartment with only a fire escape...So the answer to my problem is one that I figured out three years ago. Balcony Container Gardening! But now, how to make it pretty? I've been looking for inspiration and found some good ones. Check them out!

An Etsy Kind of a Day

I also really like the Etsy shop of Vintage Bouquet. They pair vintage scarves and brooches with one anther and sell them as sets. I love this because I like to always be coordinated, so I thought you all might find this interesting as well. Decent prices too, averaging from $25-30.
