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!

Last week I was invited to be a guest curator over at Wedzu, and I’m excited to share with you my favorite picks from their vendors. Feel free to pop over and check it out!

Its become pretty common that couples generally live together before getting married, which means they’ve already stocked their cupboards with all the plates, glassware, and appliances they could ever need, so dont really need to register for any more (ok, you can still get that Kitchenaid Mixer if you REALLY need it!). Some couples would rather register for experiences instead of more of the same, and thats where Traveler’s Joy comes in!
Your registery takes minutes to set up, and not only can you register for things like dinners or spa treatments, but you can also add in guide books and cameras to keep you on the right track and capture all your memories. More expensive items can be divided up into manageable dollar amounts, so multiple people can contribute to a gift. A friend of mine recently registered for honeymoon experiences, and I can honestly say its really gratifying knowing that my contribution was to something they really wanted to do, and that I knew they’d always remember…
