Innovative design can be described as showing people what they can have, rather than merely giving them what they want: and this often translates to expanded functionality. When your apartment has limited tabletop and storage space, it’s especially fun to discover one product that can replace two or three devices you use regularly. Are you fond of infusing your home with comforting scents? And do you love to set a mood with colorful lighting? Perhaps you are also in the market for a small humidifier to offset the drier indoor air during winter months. If you’re feeling any or all of these scenarios, then you will want to check out the Innogear Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser.

Innogear is a pioneering company in the art of aromatherapy, and they offer a range of home diffusers to meet your needs and complement your decor. I received the Model AD309D, seen above, for the purpose of this review. Let’s look at everything this diffuser can do!

Eye On Design: Vista Picture Frames Made From Recycled Styrofoam!

If you are anything like me, framed favorite artwork and photos are not only a huge part of your home decor, they’re also an important part of how you rock your personal style.  I love a nice frame so much, I often pick up one that catches my eye even before I have something in mind to go inside it. Maybe you never considered that a  picture frame manufacturer could be a force in the campaign to sustain our planet, but at a recent IHA Press Event, I was introduced to a collection of gorgeous and innovative modern framing solutions from Vista Frame Company which are all created from one of our most notoriously non-biodegradable, manmade materials: Polystyrene (aka Styrofoam). Unbelievable, but true!

Table Display With Foam Example

Did you know that consumers discard about 5 billion pounds of  styrofoam annually? That’s crazy! The story is that even before Vista became a frame company, they were trying to do anything they could to protect our enviroment. Because of this, Vista created a styrofoam recycling machine, and they have placed these machines all over the world, taking away a portion of the 5 billion pounds of styrofoam that would otherwise end up in a landfill every year. Once styrofoam is broken down in these machines, they ship it to their factory and create Vista Frames from the recycled, pelletized styrofoam.

Frame Recycling Step 1

Pink Accent Frame

Vista Frames are super stylish, and of such high quality you would never guess they were not made of wood, plastic, metal or other traditional materials. I love that this company is making a beautiful, functional products and taking care of the Earth in the process. Vista makes the perfect frame for every photo or piece  of frame-able artwork in your home.

Pineapple Art Print

Each piece even comes with a fun print that you just might want to leave in the frame! Find out more about Vista Frames, and shop the collection, at This Link!

I found this amazing lamp on the second floor of Pear River Mart, on Broadway near Grand Street in downtown Manhattan. The price tag says $299.50, but it has 50% off sticker on it, so this is some kind of incredible bargain, if you ask me. If this seems like something you might want to own, I suggest you bring a friend with you, to help carry it to the street, because it probably weighs a few pounds.

Twin Peaks Shower Curtains

Twin Peaks Shower Curtain Scenic

OK, every Twin Peaks fan knows that the series’ first episode opened on the scene of the discovery of Laura Palmer’s dead body, washed up on the beach, “wrapped in plastic” – a plastic shower curtain, to be exact. Now you can think of Twin Peaks every time you shower with these amazing designer shower curtains from Society 6, featuring two dozen different designs, all commemorating the legacy of one of network TVs weirdest dramas!

Here’s one I like a lot!

Forget the fact that he thinks Architected is a word, Domaine Home is actually praising Kanye West’s Interior Design Advice. Oy. Don’t they understand that if we keep giving him all of this attention he’ll never go away? Sigh. If you ever have a few hundred thousand to blow on an over-inflated ego, and need to learn what color is taupe, and which taupe will look good on your ceiling – donate that money to a charity. Or hire Yeezus.

I’m always on the look out for Do It Yourself, Contemporary Design ideas for the home, and this empty Paint Can Chandelier, spotted hanging in Urban Outfitters at the corner of 72nd Street and Broadway, really caught my eye. You can see from the close-up photo below that this lighting fixture could probably be made with some inexpensive cables and a little home improvement electrical know-how Googled from the Interwebs.

You should have heard me squeal when my friend Paula posted this photo of a Pink Pig Radiator on my FaceBook page yesterday. Can you believe this thing has been floating around the interwebs for two entire years and I just saw it for the first time? Neither can I. When it gets hot, I wonder if it smells like Bacon?
