Registering for gifts can sometimes be a hassle…you usually can’t find everything you want at 1 store, and then have to deal with registering at multiple stores. Or maybe your home is already set up in the kitchen and linen departments, but you’d love help with doing cool stuff on your honeymoon. Well thats where the genius of SimpleRegistry comes in…you can register at any store or for anything you want! Add stuff in person with the snap of your iPhone or get lost on the web collecting sites, its easy no matter what you do. Best part is your guests can pitch in for all or part of gifts, and you get to redeem it all as cash to decide how to distribute or when you buy, cuz honestly, who wants an apartment filled with boxes when you’re trying to plan a wedding and have all your DIYing to do! See what else SimpleRegistry can do to make registering for gifts easier here, and while you’re there, sign up for your own registry website!

As an interior designer, I’m constantly on the hunt for fabulous accessories and decor pieces for clients and I’m always tempted to write about them here, but dont since I’m clearly not a design blog. But I’ve finally figured out a way around that! So many things I come across would make for great registry or bridal gifts, so I’m starting a new column called Registry Redux, and in a nutshell, its pretty much anything I would have wanted to register for when I was getting married! We’re not talking crockpots here people, we’re talking serious modern design….hope you guys enjoy!
These Astack candlesticks from Helgo are a new favorite of mine…you can buy pieces in multiple colors and stack til your little hearts content for multiple configurations. Available in the US from The Vitrine and Gretel (on sale!!).
Williams-Sonoma is pretty much the go-to place for great chef’s tools right? I think everyone can agree on that! But not always are chef’s tools that attractive looking while still being super functional. I’ve scoured the entire Williams-Sonoma site to find the best looking products for your registry that are modern, sleek, fun, and of course, amazing in the kitchen. And best of all, you’ll have a chance to win $150 to spend at Williams-Sonoma to get your own goodies!
[Above] Why stick with plain white kitchen tools when you can spice it up with some color? [Multi-color ceramic 7-piece mixing bowl set, Kuhn Rikon essential paring knife set, Taylor Orange digital timer, Chef'n citrus juicer, Rosle fruit muddler, Microplane herb mill.]
For your tabletop and entertaining, sleek lines and stemless wine glasses make for a perfectly modern setting. Sticking with white here means you can accessorize with color using table linens, flowers, etc. [Aaron flatware, Riedel "O" wine glasses, Riedel "O" wine decanter, Pillivuyt Coupe Porcelain Dinnerware]
These appliances are good enough to keep in plain view on the counter! [DeLonghi Magnifica-S Espresso Machine, Cuisinart Stainless Steel ice cream maker, Breville One-Touch Tea Maker, Cuisinart Elite Die-Cast 12-cup food processor]
So now’s your chance to win some of these good-lookin goodies for yourself!
