i'm charlotte cleverley. over the past 20 years i have been learning the ropes as a modern furniture designer. through the highs and lows of my experience, i have become rather acquainted with the non-stop researching, the studying, the compulsiveness, down to being completely swallowed up by this fantastic culture of modern design. the reviews are in! modern never sleeps.

oh how i love a good furniture store!  a new Interio Furniture opened up by my house, and i am indeed a happy girl.  while there, i was like a large, pale moth swarming these awesome lights by Nud Collection.  i was digging the display of random heights, sizes, and colors, and totally love how flexible they are (i'm not the most spontaneous, so maybe that's why i'm so drawn to furniture and products that are???  hmmm . . . a little introspective revelation!).  i'm envisioning a row of these puppies streamlined down a tall hallway, spattered all around a space like party lanterns, or even one lone ranger above a desk.  these are super flexible and i must say that i need to get one . . . or 12.





cub's crib

what's that i hear?  you're tired of me dragging out the crib + nursery reveal?  well then, consider it revealed!
the lowdown is as follows:  we designed and built the crib, made the curtains and matching throw pillow, the mobile, stripped and painted the dresser/ changing table including painting the handles (but we are going to swap them out for ones made from zebrawood crib scrap once we get a chance), built the matching tray for the changing table, painted the space (actually, a couple of my friends jumped in on that one), and installed the light fixture.  (i also want to give a shout-out to brady's mom, because she was a MASSIVE help in getting everything done.)  

light fixture and dresser lamp:  kartell
crib bedding and changing pad cover:  dwell studio for target
wardrobe in the right corner:  ikea
rocker:  eames
furry stool:  fly furniture

we still need to add a rug, bookshelf, make the handles for the dresser, and add more artwork, but what in life isn't a work in progress?  so very profound. 




the mobile and changing table both used zebrawood scraps from the crib-build.  for the dangling icons (is there a technical name for them?), i wanted the mobile to have a swiss theme, so behold this felt marvel.  ok, so definitely not a marvel, but it was a fun project.  i refuse to use the word 'craft', although husb mentioned many-a-time about the kitchen table looking awfully 'crafty'.  rather than 'craft table' i prefer 'design center'.
it has been a few months and cub still seems quite amused by his overhead view.


the base of the crib offers some great storage (it never fails that the second i kneel down, pup comes over).  a $4 sticker makes the crib seem more authentically swiss.
i purchased these animals in suits on etsy 5 years ago and still get a kick out of them.
2012 has been a busy year.  i need a nap!
