“I certainly would not say the British have a monopoly on eccentricity,” says Ros Byam Shaw, author of the 2014 book English Eccentric: A Celebration of Imaginative, Intriguing and Stylish Interiors (Ryland Peters & Small). “Every country has its eccentrics, but perhaps we have much than most. It is a trait we celebrate rather than pillory, and nonconformity is quite a British thing.

Instead of tossing them in the trash, use vacant toilet tissue rolls to keep track of all your cords—a little decorative washi tape will keep the rolls in tact (and looking cute).

Sometimes all you need to add to a bland recipe, room is something a little sweet. The Petit Beurre Cushion adds some shade also flavor to an otherwise plain space. While it does look a bit like a giant cookie, it’s still enough pillow that you don’t have to be labeled “whimsical” for putting it on your sofa.

Kravitz's first big project was a traditional Biscane Bay, Fla., manse he called Villa Roxie after his mother, actress Roxie Roker. The outcome was a decorating contention between Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz's clean, contemporary classicism and the rocker's love of a louche 1970s appearance. Later, a more victorious collaboration with architect-designer Michael Czysz on a Miami Beach ranch residence resulted in a design mind-meld of epic proportions—a shagadelic synthesis of Hugh Hefner's early Playboy clubs and the film A Clockwork Orange.

Shelving looked to be a very plentiful line of work for the designers who were present with creations at Milan Furniture Fair. We have seen so many distorted and completely unexpected shelves that we hardly managed to make a selection. We originally photographed this cool shelving plan but then recognized that the whole living space arrangement is worth sharing. So here it is, in all its creativity. A modern and yet warm atmosphere is generated by the simple and yet novel overall design. The beautiful white couch contrasts with the wooden surrounding furniture. And check out the highly primary table design with decorative wooden detail, some of them placed suddenly outside the table perimeter. Nicely done!

In our yard, we directed my “big dreams” by focusing on one “zone” at a time (see my post on how to design a backyard). See the backyard transformation here. Zeroing in on designing one unusual area can be a way to stretch the budget and resources as well as a way to help focus notice on one project at a time.

Pottery Barn is a design company founded in 1949 in Manhattan and planned on their work reflecting the idea that” home furnishings should be exceptional in comfort, style and quality.” We do not know much about their comfort and quality, but one thing we can say for sure: their furniture looks absolutely amazing! Perhaps it is the vintage touch or the original letters and numbers embedded in the decorations. Or the colors that are not too flashy, nor neutral. And what do you think about the overall arrangements? The flower arrangements really seem to fit in and light up the rooms. Whichever it is, we invite you to take a closer look and pick out those elements that you like the most. In other words, we hope you will find plenty of inspiration in the pictures below.

iPod and iPhone docks come in a myriad of shapes and colors, but this is the first dock that we have seen that actually doubles as a shelf, which is a really smart design.
