Fresh. Modern. Timeless. What better way to “save the date” than to stitch it onto the inside of your wedding dress. Monograms have become so cliche as of late in wedding decor. If I see one more cake topper with initials, I might lose all remaining faith in people. Luckily, my faith is temporarily restored by this super sweet detail. I can’t help but love the incorporation of the ever-changing world of design into the deep-rooted traditions of the western wedding. My only minor tweak to this would be to model it after my (one and only) favorite calendar — the Stendig. Can we say the epitome of avant-garde chic?

As a huge Jackie O fan, this one makes me smile more than any other.

New ways to look at ordinary objects. Case and point: pencil salt and pepper shakers. A tongue-in-cheek way to season your food.

A great conversation starter when your guests come over and hang up their jackets.

I really like this teabag teaspoon cup and saucer set. For one thing, the black on white always grabs my interest. Additionally, I love the sketch/hand decorated look. Very organic. Very pretty.

Geeky potholders/grips. In the kitchen, it’s always helpful to have an extra set of hands.

I love these personalized initial necklaces — Ebony & Ivory. You get a pair in both black and white. Capitalization and lower-casing can be customized to your desire. Sterling silver eat your heart out. Find these necklaces at Furni.

Nothing makes ringing in the new year more official than replacing old calendars with new ones. For me, the Stendig wall calendar is all I need. Designed in 1966 by Massimo Vignelli and chosen that same year to join the Design Collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Stendig calendar is the epitome of classic chic.
The Stendig wall calendar consists of twelve sheets printed in black ink on white sixty pound weight offset paper stock. The calendar sheets for some months are reverse printed producing a black background with white letters and numerals with other months printed in black on white background. Make sure to have a big space for it. The calendar is three feet by four feet. Recently, I purchased an assortment of bold color Post-It Notes. You can write all over your Stendig or adhere a variety of Post-It Notes to the date as reminders for appointments and things to do. Additionally, I love re-using the sheets for gift wrapping and other fun projects. I love all things bold. The Stendig will keep your life in order and it it will also be a piece of art for your wall. Extra points for black & white!
