A+R

Although most kitschy items usually cause me to roll my eyes, I am oddly attracted to fun, unique household items that scream personality, but also offer a useful function. While strolling Abbot Kinney the other day, I visted A+R and was overwhelmed by the whimsical accessories I am now lusting for. They have a great website and offer lots of gifty (for others or for you!) brilliance for pretty much any age group or occasion.

LEIF LOVE

I love shopping for little things that bring joy into my home.  I’ve forever had a knack for gifty items and enjoy finding a quirky or colorful detail to add to an open space.  Leif is a website I frequent for their fun and unique small home accessories.  I’m embracing the “no rules” decor idea by incorporating dinner bowls into my jewelry storage system, pencil jars for hair accessories and pretty magnets for keeping bobby pins in one place.  Thinking outside the box only makes your home more you.
