Pardon us if we drool, but these simple-yet-gorgeous scandinavian rugs are just our style. The line of cotton and wool Kelim rugs from Ferm Living‘s fall collection are an exercise in simplicity, with on-trend colors and geometric block patterns. Oh, Design*Sponge. You really know the way to our hearts, don’t you?

Beautiful Bike: The Wood B

Househappy —  September 11, 2014 — Leave a comment

We agree with Remodelista: this might just be the world’s most beautiful bicycle.

Designed and built by French brand BSG, the Wood B is the first wooden bike manufactured entirely in France—and it’s simple, clean design is definitely lust-worthy.

Fall Back: First Signs of Autumn

Househappy —  September 10, 2014 — 1 Comment

It’s a chilly morning in Portland!

While we still have a couple more weeks of summer, we’re already starting to feel fall’s arrival. So when we saw this photo series showcasing autumn’s colors over at 79 Ideas, it seemed only appropriate to share.

It’s no secret that we love Apple products and clean design.

The YOHANN—a minimalist, functional, iPad® stand—is the best of both worlds. It comes in a variety of beautiful colors and it even works on soft surfaces. We want it.

No wonder it’s already fully backed on Kickstarter.

Gone are the days of the boring dog house.

Spotted over at Freshome, these fun and colorful pet trailers won’t just give your furry friend a place to call his or her own—it’ll also look great in your home or backyard. Plus, they’re made from environmentally-friendly materials, including recyclable aluminum, plywood, and plastic, so you won’t have to feel guilty about it.

We love Househappy’s home state of Oregon and we love Design*Sponge, so when we saw that they did a roundup of the state’s best homes, you can bet we were excited. Many of the homes that made the list are in Portland, too, so we’re definitely a little envious of these digs.

Summer isn’t over yet, right? (Right!?)

The ease into fall will be a bit easier with these colorful geometric-patterned umbrellas from David Saunders (aka David David). Not only are the umbrellas design-forward enough to brighten up a rainy afternoon, the maple wood shaft doubles as a walking stick when the umbrella is closed.

Time to start perfecting our rain dance.
