I recently started contributing stories to California Home + Design’s beautiful new website, and this roundup of colorful home decor is the first. Color is a subject that’s close to my heart, so I really enjoyed pulling together the brightest things that I could find. As an added bonus, CaliforniaHomeDesign.com has designed their roundups so that all of the products are displayed at once, which creates an especially stunning a visual impact with a group like this. Check out this story and the rest of the site right here.

Like a moth being drawn to a flame, I felt an incredible urge to stare at, sit in and own one of these patterned seats immediately after stumbling upon them. Made by Seattle-based NuBe Green, these vintage chairs and sofas have had their springs retied and then have been reupholstered with vintage wool blankets.
Because NuBe Green’s designers mix and match vintage wool blankets, no two pieces will look exactly alike. It’s great how graphic these cozy blankets look when they’re fitted and positioned just so on the tailored upholstery.
You can check out the pieces that have been upholstered and are ready to go on NuBe Green’s site right here. You can also contact them directly about having a custom piece made, which could be especially wonderful if you have a favorite old blanket that you’re like to enjoy in a new way.
