I love sleek, modern decor. Clean lines, minimal clutter.
I know a lot of moms talk about ugly baby gear taking over their homes (I read one blogger who said that most baby gear looks like "the circus threw up on it"). And while we don't have a baby yet, I'm already noticing a little bit of this with our furry baby, our cat Judah.
No offense to anyone, bu there is some seriously fugly cat gear out there. Exhibits A and B:
Faux houses, neon colors? No thank you.
Ideally, I'd love to have a sweet playground of a house for Judah, like this house in Japan.
Isn't that cool?! But it's just not feasible for us.
Apparently some merchants got the memo that some people want sleeker cat products and decor. In fact, Modern Cat is blog/website dedicated to all things modern for cats. But the products are all sooo expensive.
Enter Ikea Hacker. They have so many great ideas for what to do with Ikea products. Such as this litter box hider (originally intended as a bathroom sick cabinet). LOVE this!
Or this cat tree made from Lack shelving.
Now I just need to convince the Mr. to bust out his tools and hack some Ikea with me one of these weekends.
Of course, I can't do a post about Judah without a picture of him. I guess he wanted to come to work with me, because he tried to stole-away in my laptop bag. Silly cat.
Have you incorporated any pet items into your home in a chic and easy way?
