I Love the Internet + I Want This

The most perfect mug ever, and other things that are making me happy.

A few days ago I was skimming through the Design House Stockholm website, and I came across these gorgeous “Bono” mugs designed by Catharina Kippel. Instantly overtaken by the perfection of the one with the droplet pattern in particular (I have a bit of an obsession with teardrop shapes), I grabbed the photo, posted it on Flickr, and started to agonize over the likely cost of shipping and VAT to get a set of these delivered to me in New York.

Shortly thereafter, Katie popped in to inform me that Crate & Barrel is selling all four of the Design House Stockholm mugs for a mere $10.95! HOORAY. Needless to say, I’ll be stopping in to C&B tonight to pick up several.

More things that are making me happy today:

I love this kitchen by DAPStockholm (found via designsponge), with its red Arne Jacobsen faucet (part of the Vola line I love) and the Cole & Sons wallpaper (which I really expected to be tiring of by now, but I still love it). It reminds me of another favorite kitchen of mine.

I really do love red in the kitchen! Isn’t it nice how everything starts to tie together after a while?


+ I’ve really been enjoying Alice’s posts over at Peapods.

+ Camilla posted really beautiful photos of her morning walk yesterday.

+ It’s almost the weekend!

    I’m waiting on Crate & Barrel for a shipping quote for those mugs. If that doesn’t pan out, they better still have them in the fall when I go to the states!

    i am still not sick of that wallpaper either! Those mugs are amazing! When I first saw them I thought they might be marimekko (there is a teardrop design by her too) I hope they are on the website and I live in Canada therefore no C&B here 🙁

    I was just thinking yesterday how much I love teardrop shapes. Fine Little Day has some pillowcases with them that I want real bad.

    There is no Crate & Barrel in Louisiana, wah. Thank you, Jesus, for the internet.

    Yay! Glad I was able to help!

    I have been a frequent visitor of this blog for some time now, so I thought it would be a good idea to leave you with my thanks.

    A cheaper, and quicker alternative to the Cole & Sons wallpaper is this Ikea drape/panel thing

    I hung it in my bathroom instead of wallpaper and it’s been easy enough to clean. As I just moved I know I should be blogging all the DIY, but I can’t get myself to the computer after a long day of… working on a computer!

    I have seen that ‘tree wallpaper’ in another magazine and also thought it was wonderfu.
    Your apartment is really stunning.

    Hi Anna! I love your blog-you’re house is amazing! When I saw the teardrop mugs, I fell in love immediately. I stopped by my local C&B outlet, and they had them for $6.95! I scooped up 6!

    Almost a year later…. I just started reading your blog last month and now I am catching up by randomly reading your older posts. Am so glad that I did because I have been searching the internet for this wallpaper for weeks! I didn’t know the name or manufacturer and googled birch trees, trees, black and white wallpaper. Never thought to use woods. You can imagine what I came up with under birch tree/tree wallpaper – that awful photo wallpaper from the late 70’s. Blech. I had already given up. Thanks so much. My powder room is now saved and I am anxiously awaiting the DHL delivery man.
