Just In: Novogratz x Walmart Bedding Collaboration

Husband and wife design duo Bob and Cortney Novogratz are at it again. There latest effort is the 9 by Novogratz bedding and bath collection at Walmart. The line includes bedding, beds, and bath accessories in their signature bright, geometric pops of color. The pieces are great for kids—the couple have seven of their own—and extra vibrant grownups.

Bob and Cortney Novogratz masterfully layer pattern and color, but of course the throw pillows, shams, duvets, towels, and shower curtains work perfectly as accents . The collection also includes furniture—painted metal beds, upholstered beds and headboards in stripes and solids, tufted storage ottomans, solid color sofas, and chevron armchairs.

In addition to the 9 by Novogratz bedding and bath collection at Walmart, there’s the Novogratz dinnerware collection at Macy’s with brightly patterned dishes, and the Novogratz collection at CB2 with more eclectic home furnishings.  They even have a television show, “Home by Novogratz” on HGTV. Yeah, they are pretty busy and creative energy abounds.

I’ve deconstructed two rooms below (and included images of several others), so you can put the look together yourself.

Get the Look: 27 Black Home Furnishings

Since black is *the* color for decor, and I’ve done plenty of posts focusing on black decor, including black kitchen pendant lights and rooms with black walls for LampsPlus and black bedrooms for the Matouk Bedding blog, I thought it was time to do a roundup of black home furnishings and accessories. From black flatware to black seating, there are 27 choices, all with distinctive details or in interesting silhouettes. (Come to think of it, though, I may never have done a roundup of rooms with black walls here. . .  perhaps I owe you one!)

Site Spotlight: Idyll Home

Idyll Home is a British webshop offering a tightly curated collection of home furnishings and decor that have a vintage modern aesthetic, infused with a bit of the rustic and industrial. I hadn’t come across it until this morning, when proprietor Claire Krier sent me a note. I happened to need a quick topic to blog on this morning, so was psyched to see her darling offerings. Idyll Home is based in the Staffordshire countryside. Krier searches out things that aren’t in every shop, including ethical and recycled products. Lines include American meets Indian favorite John Robshaw, Danish brands Tine K and House Doctor, and Dutch tabletop company Jansen + Co. Below are a dozen pieces from Idyll Home that I’d love to own.

Just In: Design by Sir Terence Conran for JCPenney

Conran & Company for JCPenney

Brit design great Sir Terence Conran of Conran & Company has entered into a partnership with the very American retailer JCPenney. Obviously its following wannabe-thought-of-as-high-end collab happy Target, though this enterprise is meant to be long term. The collection is called Design by Conran for JCPenney, and the first wave of products (58 on the website) just launched in approximately 300 JCP stores (apparently monogram monikers are the way to go these days) and online. It doesn’t seem to be getting much hype, or maybe I’m just sorely out of the loop somehow, but the products are fantastic looking. So much so, I’m tempted to drive out to the ‘burbs for a touchy feel. More likely I’ll just order something. UPDATE: Many of these pieces are now on sale. Definitely time to shop; click through for the reduced prices.

Marimekko Holiday Gift Guide: For the Entertainer

This is a three-part holiday gift guide series sponsored by Marimekko, one of my favorite home design companies.

S H O P P I N G

1 Räsymatto Oilcloth Placemat, $24
Durable and easy to clean, it’s not  just the pattern that makes this perfect for young families.  It’s made of 100 percent cotton and phthalate-free PVC coating.

2 Räsymatto Teapot, $87
Sami Ruotsalainen designed this teapot as part of the Oiva dinnerware collection. The clean lines and serene character are inspired by Japanese design. The handle is natural wood and there’s a porcelain tea strainer inside.

3 Socks Rolled Down Glass Pitcher, $89
Sukat Makkaralla, which means “socks rolled down” in Finnish, is a collection of glassware designed by Anu Penttinen. The size and shape works for flowers too.

4 Lumimarja Dinner Plate, $27
Sami Ruotsalainen designed this subtle wintry pattern for Marimekko, which is a new addition to the brand’s pattern line.

5 Kippis Tea Towel Set, $36
Pretty linen-cotteon blend towels are great stocking stuffers, because really, who splurges on these for her own kitchen?

6 Vattenblank Plywood Tray, $82
Trays are made of fabric that has been pressed into birch plywood and laminated. The bright design shows off plain white dishes to perfection.

7 Socks Rolled Down Dessert Bowl, $49
Serving dessert is extra sweet on a pedestal. Anu Penttinen designed this whimsically named collection.

8  Irrbloss Mug, $49
Sami Ruotsalainen designed this mug as part of the Oiva dinnerware collection, using Astrid Sylwan’s abstract Irrbloss pattern.

9 Kuukuna Apron, $49
This new veggie print is super cute, and the dark color will hide your mess. Plus, it has handy deep pockets.

10 Vanhakaupunki Small Bowl, $20
This new design was also designed by Sami Ruotsalainen . The red, gold, and burgundy palette makes it perfect for breakfast on Christmas morning.

11 Lappuliisa Oven Mitt, $24
Makes baking more fun.

12 Socks Rolled Down Tumbler, $39/pair
These distinctive glasses are hand-blown and handmade of solid stained soda-lime glass with colors that run inside the glass, not just on the surface.

13 Oiva Serving Pot, $65
Not just for the table, this piece is practical too, since they’re dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe.

14 Siirtolapuutarha Plate, $35
Maija Louekari created this pattern for the forms in the collection so that each piece tells a different part of the story. 

15 Siirtolapuutarha Espresso Cup & Plate, $35
This set is the newest addition to the Oiva tableware collection. In addition to this Räsymatto (means “rag rug” in Finnish) pattern, designed by Maija Louekari, it comes in solid white.

16 Oiva Pitcher, $52
The silhouette of this pitcher, made of hard, glazed porcelain like the rest of the line, is beautiful enough to display it full time.
