human house harvey, clearWhen I was a kid, I used to tell everyone that my favorite color was clear. I thought that was a brilliant choice because it meant I didn’t have just one favorite color, but that I appreciated them all. Now that I’m wiser and more mature about the ways of Pantone selection, I can say that my choices in color have definitely changed. But I will never lose that soft spot in my heart for all things clear, so today I’ve rounded up some of my favorites in the crystal-clear world of design for myself, my home and my pup, Mr. Harvey. — Stephanie

HUMAN — I’m an eyewear fanatic. A chic clear frame can be hard to come by, but these incredible clear sunglasses will be in my hands soon enough.

HOUSE — I love the look of a modern ghost chair among other classic elements. This unique style would be a great addition to my living room.

HARVEY — It can be difficult to find a set of dog bowls that matches the color and style of your personal decor. But when the bowls are clear, there’s no need to worry about them fitting in.

    I have and LOVE that chair! I happened to find mine at a sale in downtown Los Angeles. A company, which furnishes movie sets, was having a blowout and I got the chair at a ridiculously low price. At the time, I had no idea who made/designed it and knew nothing of it’s original retail. About a year later, I was floored to find out how much it was actually worth. Needless to say, I’m obsessed.

  2. I was just reading about how clear acrylic furniture can make a small space feel bigger (at apartment therapy). Could it make a small face feel bigger with clear acrylic sunglasses? Hahahahaa! I kid. But really, I love this trend of clear furniture and accessories. Really fun. Also, I love that as a kid you told people clear was your favorite color. Makes me smile!

  3. Love these picks! I especially like the clear pet bowl – I totally agree, it can be really touch to find stylish pet accessories!

    I shared the same favourite ‘colour’ as a child. My first watch was a clear Swatch watch and my first phone was transparent too. SO COOL. I currently have a vintage clear frame and love them. Thnks for sharing.

    I have that chair too! I picked it up at a garage sale for $15 – I take it’s worth a little bit more than that? Who’s the designer, what is it called?
