Get the Look: Modern Watering Cans

A watering can is one of those things you don’t think of having (or have room for) when you live in the city. (Or maybe you do, if you’re all green thumb-y.) A while back, I fell in love with a sleek, stainless steel watering can at MoMA (no longer available), that I received as a holiday gift. The long, skinny spout, great for filling vases around the house, is als, not conducive to city-size cabinets, so it lives on the Cape.

I have been thinking of getting another one that’s more compact for Boston (love the copper X3 by Kontextur, though the Born In Sweden watering can is more practical and comes in excellent colors.) I actually don’t have an outdoor watering can on the Cape, which I think I should get if I have any hope of growing anything this summer, which I kinda do. (Shocking, I know.) Here are 20 colorful, modern watering cans, for indoors and out.

Get the Look: Colorful Multicolor Dinnerware

I got an email this morning alerting me to the new and very colorful dinnerware collection by The Novogratz, now available at Macy’s. That’s Cortney and Robert Novogratz, the husband and wife design duo and parents of seven children, whose fun aesthetic has been the subject of an HGTV show and several collections for CB2. I’ve long been a fan of the CB2 Family rug, which is sadly no longer in production. (I’d kinda been thinking about using it in our Florida condo.)

The dinnerware would look great in an all white decor, which got me thinking, what other colorful tabletop patterns are available, if one were to extend beyond white or basic neutrals Here are 25 colorful, multicolored dinnerware options from StyleCarrot partners for you to shop. I’ve always loved iitala Origo (#3). Which would you stray from white for?
