Thanks to KP who uploaded her super colorful and quite eco-friendly paper towel roll photo into our Flickr pool, I learned what an unpaper towel roll is. We talked about going toilet paper free. But would you ditch your paper towels?
This is Offbeat Home's archive of kitchens posts.
Big fuzzy yarn-fluffy thanks to Honolulu Homie Lauren for uploading this color orgy of a moment into our Flickr pool. Or as she referred to it… "Yarn-pocalypse: Boring corner overhaul." The moment I saw it pop up like rainbow magic in our Flickr pool, I just had to know more… paintings, dinosaurs, what's hanging up over the kitchen pass through!? Amazing. And Lauren was more than happy to tell us all about her moment.
Given the ubiquity of fruit stickers (…at least here in the US; is this a regional thing?), we've had a longstanding tradition in my house of collecting our stickers on the top of our water filter pitcher.
This begs the question: my husband and I can't be the only people who can't stand to just throw away a sticker. What about you, Homies?
I am losing my shit over this impeccably restored period home in Denver, Colorado. Not only is the home a mid-century modern dream, but it's been decorated — inside AND out — in color-blocked, Mondrian-style, using a Skittles palette colors of bright reds, yellows, greens, and oranges.
If you'd like to be schooled on color-block decor, come drool all the fuck over this 1952 ranch home.
Can we talk about matching spice jars?
Half of me says "You should totally do that! It's chic, pretty, and awesome." The other half says "THAT IS THE STUPIDEST IDEA AND MAKES NO DIFFERENCE. WHY WOULD YOU MAKE MORE WORK FOR YOURSELF BEYOND THE JARS THEY COME IN?!" My brain literally yells that at me.
What does everyone else think? Does anyone in the real world have all their spices in matching jars?
After a Twitter exchange with Homie iLiveinmylab about whether or not I had seen the newest French Bull kitchen knife, I got to thinking… What OTHER amazing and brightly colored housewares does French Bull have to offer? The answer was stunning as it was downright colorful to the point of hurting my eyeballs.
I have spent the last week researching fun, colorful bar stools with backs that should be about 26" tall, but I haven't found one yet! 26" would be the ideal height to be able to fit our legs under the table, but most bar stools are taller. Do you have any ideas or awesome finds to share?
