The multi-story behemoth that is Restoration Hardware’s Meatpacking district flagship store is very much like a museum of home design retail. You could spend a week in that place. The abundance of fully-furnished display rooms also makes it a great place to find Pink Things. Case in point: these Paris Pink Lacquered Storage Boxes, which I covet wildly.
These hand-poured and polished lacquer wood boxes — each layer individually hand polished to create a deep, rich finish impervious to heat and alcohol — feature a a velvet-lined interior, which makes them ideal for keeping your jewelry safe and pampered. Made in the United States by Pacific Connections, they are available in a range of sizes and can be purchased online Here.
Oh, You Pretty Things . . .

I originally took this photoof a giant paper mache (guessing) Pink Bunny Storage Ottoman (guessing again) at a NY Now gift show in August of 2019. I found it in my photo archives while digging around for a pink thing to post this week. How fortunate.
You can see it is rather big, so it would probably be a great addition to a child’s bedroom or playroom, as the back has a removable “lid” and I am sure you could store lots of toys and kid’s crap (or even linen) inside it. It’s pretty cute, definitely unique and also quite practical. Although I neglected to note the vendor, I did a search for “paper mache animal heads” and found this site, where I immediately recognized the Rainbow Striped Cow Head in the background. I have no idea if that is the correct vendor, but if you want to have a hand at doing some research Googling on your own, please leave any information in the comments.
If you’ve been paying attention at all, you know by now that the Pink Thing of The Day posts every Friday, with no exceptions. So why, you may wonder, am I posting Pink Things on a Thursday? Well, it is certainly because tomorrow is Christmas, and I have something even better than these assorted Pink Tabletop Christmas Tree Decorations waiting for you this Friday! You’ll see what I mean tomorrow!

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!
Are Unicorns still trending? Who cares! Are you perhaps even a grown adult women who needs to own Pink Unicorn String Lights for her bedroom or bathroom? Well, here you go! And at only $8.00, what a bargain!

You’ve seen the fabulous and boldly colorful designs of PolArt furniture on The ‘Gig many times before, and these flocked busts in a bright magenta pink hue might just add the ideal classic accent for your own home! Surely they would go perfectly with something like This!

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!
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.
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.
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!
