CPOTW- Isaac Ottoman

This week’s CPOTW (Cool Product of the Week) is the Isaac ottoman from Pier 1.

They add a fun punch to any room, and at $149.95/piece you can pick up a few. They can serve various functions, whether you need a footrest, an accent table, extra seating or group some together for a coffee table. Available in ivory, teal, red, brown and avocado, there’s a color that will look good in just about any room.

Here’s one idea of how you can incorporate it into your new, chic room:

They are available at:–Teal/language/en-US/Default.aspx

CPOTW- Mod Clock

Check out this cool clock:

It’s found at CB2, Crate and Barrel’s more modern, more affordable, sister store.

It’s got that mod/retro/pop art vibe and I’m lovin’ every bit of it. It’s hung by a rod from your ceiling, BUT is battery operated aka no electrician needed. What’s not to like?!

The frame is red and one side of the face says “GO’ and the other is “IDLE”.

You can buy this cool cat at :

CPOTW- When Life Gives You Lemons

When life gives you melons, you might be dyslexic… Take you a minute? Yeah, me too.

This week’s Cool Product of the Week is from Target. Target online, specifically. They are very simple, very inexpensive and will give any room loads of pop. Here you go:

At $14.99 for, count ’em, 3 sets, what better way to up the cool factor of your home?

They give any room a crisp, playful edge. You can place them in a bowl on your coffee table, in a vase in your Bathroom or can be used as part of a centerpiece in your Dining Room. I have several in a vase in my Living Room and they are often complimented.

Here’s the link to purchase these bad boys:

Note: They are only available at Target online and not in stores.

CPOTW- Hanging Candelabra

Cool Product of the Week-

This one is more of a Cool Product of the Day or 2…. if you’re lucky.

A new favorite website of my features daily deals on all things home at major discounts. The products that they sell are 1-part vintage 1-part cottage and 3-parts cool. They post new products every day and often sell out fast. So, if you love this as much as I do, you better get your booty moving on this one.

Check out this candelabra:

Pretty dang sweet, huh?

At a cool $82, it won’t break the bank. You can hang it pretty much anywhere, Bedroom, Bathroom, Living Room, Entry…. With the subtle candlelight, it’s sure to set the mood. The antique style will add some personality, too.

To purchase:

CPOTW(Cool Product of the Week)

Cool Product of the Week? Easy.

I saw this and fell in love immediately. It’s sold by a company called Shades of Light. They market it as an end table. I say end table, sure, but what else? I like the idea of grouping four of them together as a coffee table. Could be the coolest plant stand you’ve ever owned. I also like the idea of having it as a stool for your feet(it’s short enough).

What’s so cool about it? Well, for one, it’s reasonably priced. 2) It oozes rustic cool. The shape is modern enough to go in your urban loft and simple enough to go in your cottage. The finish is one part country and one part chic. So, it can pretty much work in any space. I’m a big believer in adding at least a small dose of “funk” to your space. This may be your piece….

Have fun. Think BIG. Be nice to people.


CPOTW (Cool Product of the Week)

Whenever I go to a client’s house, I like to check out what they already have. If a piece is in good condition, I try to incorporate it into my overall design. There are a lot of ways to refinish or change the overall appearance of furniture. I recently found out about a product that I can’t wait to try. It’s called O’verlays. They are panels that are made from lightweight PVC composite. They come in various styles and sizes and can also be custom-made for your existing piece. You can add these moldings to furniture, mirrors, walls…. you name it. They are easily painted for a custom look that’s perfect for you.

Check out a couple of examples of what they offer:

Oh, and I forgot to mention… they are inexpensive, too! What’s not to like?!
