Once upon a time (or rather last year), former fashion execs Maria Barnes ad Raili Clasen, took a trip south of the border and found themselves exploring the shelves of a dusty old hardware store pulling down brightly colored buckets and obsessing over neon bristled brooms. A couple of margaritas later, they gave birth to the concept of taking mundane household items and giving them a little personality... or so the story goes.
Now, the Alice Supply Co. (named for The Brady Bunch's witty housekeeper) is injecting a fashionable dose of color and humor into the bleached-out abyss of household cleaning supplies – and hopefully making chores a little less laborious. By now you know that we're all about bringing striped pieces into the home, so naturally we're gaga for the range of chic striped home accessories from hammers ($26) to pails ($34), and screwdrivers ($26) to ping pong paddles ($42).
Oh, how we love stumbling onto new and fantastic home sites!
Are you ready for a pimped-out dustpan?
