ONE pop open some cold brews in style with an understated, but awesome bottle opener that is just $7 from CB2. TWO literally, one of my favorite things of all time. Not just this friday… all time. Cotton Dhurrie zig zag rug with sizes starting at $195 from Serena and Lily. THREE go all of the places on your list this summer with the linen cosmetic bags from Mark and Graham. They have they best monogram selections and start at just $15. FOUR heath ceramics has long been one of my favorite sites to go and oogle at beautiful things. This serving bowl in their ‘Alabama Chanin’ line is no exception, but is pricey at $180, so maybe just the oogling for now. FIVE I love that this serving tray from Leif is modern, but has a little bit of an antique vibe with the indigo and white pattern. $88 SIX you know when you come across those things that just make you want to throw away your inhibitions with wild abandon? This stool is that thing. The Karr Stool is chic, rustic, minimal, and just perfect. $579 from Room and Board.
I love the mellow, earthy vibe of this week’s faves! It seems so perfect for the weekend that kicks off summer – blue hues, modern touches, and naturally hewn materials just make me feel like taking advantage of the outdoors – opening all of the windows to let my curtains blow up in a breeze or growing some sort of garden (which totally won’t happen because I have a notoriously black thumb). How does it happen that someone who loves flowers so much can just stink at growing things? Oh well, we all have our strengths, right?
I am looking forward to heading up to Cleveland this weekend to visit with some friends who just moved up from Dallas, and hopefully be able to relax a bit by being out of my element. Sometimes doesn’t being at home cause us to see all of the things that should be done and keep us from being able to sit back and relax? I’m going to ignore the laundry and landscaping (until Monday, at least!).
What is on your agenda?
P.S. I’ll be taking a bit of a Memorial Day break on Monday, but will be back on Tuesday with an awesome giveaway! (let’s just say one lucky winner’s summer home improvement projects will be supplemented!) wink!
