Bouf - Buy and Sell Distinctive Design
In case you haven't already snagged a 50% off 2010 "Cute 'n Cuddly Puppies" or "Twilight" calendar (or even if you have -- toss it!), I suggest starting off the new year on a design-savvy note and opting for a wall calendar that's both unique and complementary to your home. After all, with all the electronic and PDA-powered personal calendars out there, regular ol' wall hangers are really just for show nowadays... so you might as well choose one that makes a statement! If you're looking for one that's simple-chic (and can even take you through the years to come!), this perpetual calendar designed by Massimo Vignelli is clean yet still stylish. Or if you're hoping for something a little quirkier, this 2010 Bubble Wrap calendar is a clever way to keep track of the passing days.

As much as you'd like to deny it, it's time to pack those bags and head back to school! Whether you're shacking up on campus in the dorms, going solo in your own apartment, or looking forward to a packed year in the sorority house, those blank walls can look pretty unfriendly. Even if you're not the homesick type, jazzing up your empty wall space can do wonders in making you feel more at home in your new school-year pad, and you're likely to find that even the most cramped or most run-down of places are a whole lot more bearable with a little added personality. Look back on fond memories of last summer while you have new fun times in the fall with a wall photo sleeve, or mark your limited territory over on your side of the tiny dorm room with an initial marquee light fixture. No matter what cool and trendy wall decor you throw up, it may never be a four-star resort, but hey -- it's home! Check the slideshow for some of my favorite fun and quirky wall hang-ups!
