Martha Stewart Living, April 2010

Affordable Linen

Need some linen for a project? Grayline Fabrics has you covered. 

"They have 400 colors," says Rebecca Robertson of our decorating department. "We turn to them any time we're making curtains or simple pillows." 

Choose weights from sheer to heavy. Everything is reasonably priced and available online.

Ceramics

Mud Australia's handmade dishes and platters make frequent appearances in Living photos -- and in our homes. 

Ayesha Patel, deputy creative director, is a devoted collector. "The glazes are beautiful, and the proportions are very pleasing," she says. "Plus, the pieces can go in the oven and the dishwasher."

Decorating Sources

Decorating editor Elana Frankel shares a few of her go-to products and sources.

Silver-Crowned Bulb

For light fixtures in which the bulb is exposed, this is the prettiest option. The silver tip hides the interior mechanics and helps diffuse the light. gracioushome.com 

Unfinished Wooden Furniture

When we need a basic chair, table, or bed frame, we buy it from Gothic Cabinet Craft. The selection -- including this coffee table, which we painted -- is vast, and the company ships nationwide. Parsons Coffee Table, gothiccabinetcraft.com 

Hooks

The Hook Lady has an array in every style, size, and finish. The merchandise is exceptional -- not the mass-produced designs you see everywhere. This large-scale brass boat hook is a particular favorite. hooklady.com
