Kiwi & Pom Printed Tables

I absolutely adore these printed tables by the london based design company Kiwi & Pom. When thinking about prints &patterns its sometimes hard to think outside fabric and upholstery etc. But when applied to tables prints & patterns can also be beautiful. Plus its a nice compromise if you're not crazy about table cloths. Who knew?

I would love one of these for my kitchen table. How about you? Does anyone else know of some nice printed tables? Click here to check out more of Kiwi & Pom


It's Tea Time

Im in love with these beautiful printed teacups. A must for any design savy fahionista looking for a way to add some character to the kitchen. {Bright Morning Teacups} $128.00 for set of four Anthropologie.com

Don't hide them away in the cupboard either. They're way too beautiful. Why not try installing some open shelves and display them in all their glory? Here's an idea to get your creative juices flowing...

To find brackets such as these seen in Country Living, look at your local architectural salvage yard. Beautiful reclaimed brackets from old buildings range anywhere from $65.00 to $150.00 for a pair and help to add character to your design. The only other materials you need are some mounting materials and a piece of plywood or a butchers block to lay across.
