Celestial Cloud Stool sighting

Kind of like "Where's Waldo?", here at Clayton Gray Home, we now play "Where's the Celestial Cloud Stool?" This multifunctional and good looking side table/stool keeps showing up everywhere we look! The swirling design is appealing in so many settings, don't you think?

Beautiful and creative, we love it that others want to show it off too! For more "Celestial Cloud Stool" sightings, check out our previous article - here.


Home Stylist - Wooden Conservatory Pendants

Molly from New York recently purchased the large Wooden Conservatory Pendant from Clayton Gray Home and wrote in to our "Home Stylist" asking for suggestions on other items to pair with her new light.
Great question and we are delighted to offer suggestions, since the Wooden Conservatory Pendants have been one of our best sellers. It's easy to see the appeal of this light (available in 2 sizes) with it's simple wood frame, clear glass sides and white wash finish.
A great accent to the light would be the Architectural Oval Mirror. Made of distressed wood, the natural coloring makes it look great on any wall color. Having the two items nearby would start the cool vibe of wooden products that have been modernized.
Easily our "go-to" floor covering, we love the Zebra Rug with the Wooden Conservatory Pendant. The black and white design would give the light an edge. Keeping the look neutral, but not boring, the simplicity of colors makes bringing other pieces of furniture into the mix an easy task.
Finally, if you are like Molly and placing the light in a kitchen, we love the Stark Round Dining Table right under the large wooden light. The contrast of textures makes it interesting. Add to that wooden side chairs and you've got yourself a magazine worthy setting. Thanks Molly for contacting us with your question!



Wise Choices for Fall - Owls and Skulls

With the wise owl telling us it's Fall, we can't help but adorn our necks and home with the funky little animal. Antique brass owl hangs down low on this pendant necklace that is high on personality.
Love this! Fun kitchen accessory with "fork/knife" version of the "skull/crossbone". No real "danger" here, only warnings that this dish towel is a must-have for the most used room in the home.
Halloween decor can be so typical, but not with the Skull and Spider Web table cover. The organza tablecloth takes holiday decoration up a notch with the orange crystals dotted inside each web. Now it's time to bring out the sweet stuff.
Finally you'll want to toast over and over again with the Owl rocks glasses from New Arcadia Studio. Handpainted in nice fall colors with gold accents, the owl comes to life when used. Set of 4 in a box makes a great hostess gift. Order now and receive before Halloween!



House Beautiful magazine features Matisse Cabinet

Media cabinets have sure come a long way, haven't they? Such is the thought in the article/feature in House Beautiful magazine October issue.
We were thrilled to see the Matisse Large Cabinet from Bungalow 5 featured in their line up of "storage beauties". The selections by Orli Ben-Dor give us more choices than the typical armoire that has been used for many years to store the unattractive television.
However, now that flat screens have come on the scene, it's a little more acceptable, and quite frankly "chic", to show off your modern electronic piece.
As some have found, there can be issues with those solid doors and getting your prized remote to access all of the important equipment being hidden by the cabinet. How smart and stylish though is the Matisse from Bungalow 5. The cut-out leaf design (shown above) manages to solve all issues that have previously plagued this essential home piece.
And if the Natural Cerused Oak finish above isn't your look, how about the Matisse Large Cabinet in White.
We also love this for the Dining Room!
