Things I bought, things I want: Schoolhouse

10

This home design brand is so far up my alley: I don’t know what you’d call their aesthetic, but it’s kind of a mix between midcentury and rustic farmhouse chic, if you get where I’m coming from. Their stuff isn’t cheap but it is well-made in my experience. I’ve been looking for a new duvet cover for ages, and have turned down many for being not quite right, but I love this striped one beyond reason.

A cool jute doormat with a herringbone pattern.

This lamp looks fantastic and doesn’t take up a lot of room. It’d be good for a desk in a cramped space. (Also, it comes in other colors, as many Schoolhouse products do).

My wooden spoons are all old and janky, so I’m tempted to go for this spiff set.

I don’t know anything about cooking with this saucepan, but I sure love the way it looks.

A minute porcelain sugar bowl, the likes of which I could really use.

A pretty floral quilt that looks handmade.

And speaking of quilts, of course I’m crazy for this yellow one.

Wouldn’t this clock add cheer to a kitchen wall?

    I’ve been drooling over that floral quilt since they previewed this spring collection… you might make me pull the trigger.

    I have the vintage version of that chili red Dansk Kobenstyle pan – mine is at least 50 years old and still going strong. The enamel is a bit chipped in places as to be expected, but that adds to the character. It’s really great for sauces, and I love the teak handle! You can still find these occasionally at antique shops & flea markets.

    Great picks!! I wanted to send you this before, when you were posting about lamps. Best small lamp ever is the PABLO Pixo. Two light intensity settings, and a USB port for charging kindles or iphones. The LED lamp will last 25 years unless the cat knocks it over and breaks it at the swivel joint.

    One of my favorite stores! I bought the yellow quilt many years ago and still love it and have been debating the red and white quilt for about a month to replace my ancient Target quilt… I’ve also bought shams from them, and also those selfsame cooking utensils as stocking stuffers for my husband. Wonderful beautiful things!

    If I didn’t already have one that I love, I would snap that little sugar bowl up in a second. I first learned about Schoolhouse when Eva Chen was furiously decorating her upstate NY cottage and she mentioned ordering a clothes drying rack. I needed one, too, so I thought I would check it out. It’s $174!!! Umm no thanks, especially since I replaced my otherwise perfectly serviceable one because it got mildewy. I’ll go with Target’s $39 one, TYVM.

      I almost went for the sugar bowl but figured I should wait till my kitchen is done (complete gut reno starting “soon”) before buying pretty shiny things. I am drawn to the lamp but it is a bit too pricey for the use I’d get out of it , and I’ve a feeling I’ll eventually go for the mustard quilt, which I think has been featured here before. I am ridiculously happy with my Costco drying racks, which I think were on sale for about $20 each. I went years without one and now use both constantly – talk about simple pleasures!

        Best of luck with the reno, Eloise! May it go without a hitch.
