This week is all about a clean, muted color scheme and ancient canisters from the Orient. I’ve even thrown in a little high fashion for good measure. Read on to see what’s hot in the blog world this week:

I’ve been seeing these cute ginger jars everywhere. These darling canisters have been around since the Qin Dynasty in China, where they were used to hold oil, spices and, of course, ginger. Not only is the classic white-and-blue print making a comeback, but you can find ginger jars in a variety of sizes and colors. Here are some of my favorites:

I’m loving the muted tones popping up all over. Classic white, ivory, cream and oatmeal are taking a starring role in rooms and wares.The result is a soft, clean and pure aesthetic. These images inspired me to buy a couple of ivory Provencal buckets over the weekend.

I had to share these prints from Versace’s newest home collection. I really can’t decide if I love them or hate them. I’m all about mixing the old with the new, but something about the classic Greco-Roman motifs mixed with these shades of neon seems a little off. What do you think?

    I love the idea of mixing old and new. Not only is it eco-friendly, but it also gives a sense of interest and uniqueness to a room.
