As an interior designer, I’m constantly on the hunt for fabulous accessories and decor pieces for clients and I’m always tempted to write about them here, but dont since I’m clearly not a design blog. But I’ve finally figured out a way around that! So many things I come across would make for great registry or bridal gifts, so I’m starting a new column called Registry Redux, and in a nutshell, its pretty much anything I would have wanted to register for when I was getting married! We’re not talking crockpots here people, we’re talking serious modern design….hope you guys enjoy!
These Astack candlesticks from Helgo are a new favorite of mine…you can buy pieces in multiple colors and stack til your little hearts content for multiple configurations. Available in the US from The Vitrine and Gretel (on sale!!).

NELLE has introduced a new line of larger handbags named after her fiancé, Harold. I love the colorblocking and think they’d make great gifts for your bridal party…or even yourself!

The Happy Envelope debuted some new thermography cards that had some great texture to them, but what REALLY caught my eye was that darling save the date!
Gotta love Linda + Harriett…her new calendars for 2010 are amazingly beautiful, dare I say even more beautiful than this years? She also showed some new cards that would make great gifts for bridesmaids!
The wooden squirrels from Enormous Champion are my pick for cutest wedding gift this year!
