I have a thing for lists... lists of my favorite designers, my favorite colors, favorite stores... I can go on all day. I’ve recently made a list of a few things that I’ve come across that I think are kind of cool. Here are my top picks.
1.Concrete Wall by Tom Haga
This custom trompe l'œil wallpaper from 'Concrete Wall' uses photographs by Norwegian photographer Tom Haga to simulate the look of poured concrete as well as exposed brick. It uses high-resolution photography and custom manipulation to ensure the patterns are never repeated. The wallpaper itself has a vinyl surface which is washable, UV resistant and scratch resistant.

Bringing warmth and a touch of the 'arts and crafts' style into your home, furniture like the knitted pouf as well as knitted and crocheted rugs and cushion covers have led to a resurgence in these crafts.
