Fall’s Most Wanted (Home Edition)

Were you aware that Zara had a home collection? Yeah, me neither!  Until today – and I have seeeeeeen the light!  I could peruse this site for hours.  If you are unfamiliar with Zara clothing – it’s basically an H&M from Spain.  Great, thoughtful, forward design all at really reasonable prices.  The home collection is no different.  And I have seriously been searching for a horn soap dish for about six years – of course they have it.  Dreams do come true.

Now that we are in the full throes of Fall (brrrrrr!) I’ve been feeling inspired by warm metals, spooky skulls and natural materials.  I’ve picked just a few of my favorites above, which was a difficult task – believe me.

1.  skull flatware | 2. pitcher & tumbler | 3. cozy throw | 4. black vanilla candle | 5. chain link frame | 6. horn batch accessories | 7. pub stool

I find gift-shopping for guys so much harder than gift-shopping for girls,  so when I’m buying presents for dad, bro, or the special guy in my life I try to find things that are fun, useful and something they would proudly show off to their friends (stuffed animals are out of the question).  Although, gift shopping for my brother has become incredibly easy as over the years we’ve developed a “comedy DVD/gag gift/item of clothing” system that works remarkbly well.

p.s. How cool is that iPad cover?
