For this Thursday's Take Two, we will share a blog post from Daily Candy. Daily Candy was one of the first blogs that we ever started to read. We have watched it evolved to the loveliness that it is today. We hope you enjoy this post.
The last time you hit Tunisia and Denmark in one sitting, you were elbow-deep in a Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego marathon.
Searching for global goods in real life? Look no further than House of Rym.
The home decor site is from a talented, far-flung foursome: Tunisia-based couple Rym Tounsi (a marketing guru) and Zied Youssef (an interior decorator) and Switzerland-based designers/bloggers Anna Backlund and Elisabeth Dunker.
Pieces blend the best of both worlds. Ottomans made from reworked vintage kilims and wonderfully whorled serving utensils rep top-notch Tunisian craftsmanship, while handwoven linen blankets and fairy-tale-esque paper prints put Nordic quirk front and center.
Mixing mod yellow saucers with a handmade wood sugar bowl might not come naturally, but the effects are stunning — and affordable.
You might just call it a steal. Available at houseofrym.com, $8-$1,490.
