Maybe it’s the hot and humid weather, or maybe it’s because I feel like the city scene has been a little lethargic over the last few months, but I think we’re in need of some daily, local craftiness to inspire us to greatness.
So here it is. Today’s DC Craft of the Day comes to us from Etsy seller ksickles, who’s Washington DC Metro Area Glass Tile Pendant will allow you to “Declare your love for Washington DC” and the surrounding hoods of Rockville, Baltimore, Annapolis, Alexandria and Arlington. FYI: The pendant is not waterproof, so no jumping in the Potomac with it on.
‘Spring Trend – Color (Rckndy)’

Looking for a little interior pick-me up while anticipating warmer weather? No problem. David Dennis, owner of Rckndy on U Street, shares exclusively with We Love DC readers a few design trends for Spring. Pops of color seem to be the biggest trend hitting the store with “purple being the new it color” says Dennis, who also suggests that the best way to achieve this look is by incorporating bright colors through a few bold accessories, that way, you don’t overdo it. A popular item is the Gus Modern Stool in Safron even though Dennis says that most people still end up buying it in a neutral color anyway. If color is not your thing, no worries, I was also told that 80’s geometric patterns are having a revival.
Rckndy is located at 1515 U Street NW.
