Friday Faves 5.2

Friday Faves 5.2

ONE foil color-blocked trays from The Vintage Vogue Story start at $32. TWO isn’t this diamond woven poof the coolest?  I saw it at Anthropologie last night and loved it immediately, $198. THREE I am not big on wearing scarves, but I am big on using colorful scarves for table linens!  This summery striped one from J. Crew is high on my list.  Bonus, it’s handmade by ethiopian craftsmen and women to help create economic independence.  Knowing that it was handmade makes the $135 price tag a little more worth the cost. FOUR a classic white pitcher will work all spring and summer long. This $20 enameled version from Ikea is perfect for flowers or drinks. FIVE festive and fun, these fish planters are a little coastal and a little quirky, $50-$60. Don’t worry, the big price reflects the big size!  The green one is a giant 19″ wide, making it wonderful for an impactful table centerpiece. SIX a new take on nautical, this navy and white (peel & stick!!) wallpaper is just right.  Also, it’s repositionable, apartment dwellers delight!!  $40/sheet.

Happy Friday!! I am really ready for a weekend, are you?  I spent last weekend in Hong Kong and although I had a great time, I had back to back meetings for most meals, making it quite the working weekend. I usually don’t get jet lag too bad, but I do end up waking up several times during the night wondering where I am, only to feel Perry’s little furry feet wedged against my back and realize I’m in my own bed.  So, I put on my new bed-phones (haha) with some ocean wave sounds and try to fall back asleep.  Side note, these headphones (made for sleeping) are amazing… especially if you have a snorer in your household. I tune them to a variety of sleep stations on Pandora.

Anyway, this weekend, I am SO excited to soak in some of the springtime in Ohio.  Things are greening up quite nicely and I think we’re out of frost territory, so Matt and I might try to finish our landscaping and build a raised herb garden.  I think I’ll also try to squeeze in a trip to the driving range… I’m trying to work on my game!

What’s on your weekend agenda?

Friday Faves 4.26

friday faves 4.26

ONE painted silhouettes might be the best idea for mothers day, but given their custom made 4 week lead-time, you should probably go ahead a get one for father’s day. Starting at $85 from Vonjet Silhouettes. TWO a high back woven chair for the outdoors, but it’s beautiful enough to be inside too. $466.00 from Crate & Barrel. THREE I love Mara Hoffman’s resort and swim collections, so when I heard she was doing a collab with Havaianas, I was pumped.  Flip Flops are $48/pair, but will keep you styling all summer long. FOUR I pretty much love every rug that gypsya has, this blue, coral, and white geometric flat weave rug is just one of many gorgeous examples, $288 for a 4′ x 6′. FIVE cute little patterned plates from H&M home for just £4 are a steal! (check out the pink ones too!). SIX ceiling mount lights can be so ugly, but this $79 geometric diamond light from the Young House Love for Shades of Light collection makes up for all the others.

 

It’s been a wonderful week in Hong Kong!  I’ve had a ton of great meetings, solidified some pieces for the Grandiflora fall collection, and had a chance to relax a bit too. I hope you’re been enjoying my fashion challenge so far!  I’ve loved sharing with you guys and being as strategic as possible with my creations.  Today’s outfit might be my favorite (until tonight that is!) so be sure to hop over to Instagram to follow along!

Friday Faves 4.11

ONE the perfect spotted pillow isn’t too wild, but is just the right bit for a subtle hint of glam.  $45 from Society Social.  TWO Crane flower candle from Voluspa mixes grapefruit, geranium, lavender, and nectar inspired by the bird of paradise flower… to me, it just spells like a heavenly vacation.  $38 from Anthropologie. THREE a nice little reminder from Sugar Paper to sit above your desk or display in your bedroom.  The gold foil print is 11 x 14 and is $50. FOUR handmade and so pretty, this gold border ring dish from The Object Enthusiast is lovely and makes a gorgeous gift at $34. FIVE how darling is this mini bow cord keeper? I want one for every charger in my arsenal, and at just $6 from Oh Hello Friend, I can afford to!

 

Happy Friday friends!  You know those weeks when you feel energized, optimistic, and on top of all your ‘to-do’s’? Well, it’s been one of those weeks for me.  I’ve been able to think ahead on some projects, get a couple fun dinners in, and overall just breathe a little.

How has your week been?

ONE just last week I shared Joy’s line for Target, then this week she surprises us with a line for Land of Nod.  Not only is the line gorgeous, but I’ve begun thinking that Joy is my newest business idol.  #isthereanythingshecan’tdo? This floral doodle art is so pretty, and at $20 who wouldn’t want this – kids or not!? TWO how am I just (this week) finding out about Block Chromatics? A mid-century german line that is colorful and too cute. This site has a set of six mugs for $75. THREE Have you seen Rebecca Atwood’s newest?  The Williamson collection is full of bright tangerine cushions, which I love starting at $150 (shown is $225). FOUR this simple black and brass sconce is high on my fave list… now just for someplace to put it! $110 from onefortythree.  FIVE is it possible to fall in love with a rug? That is clearly what’s happened to me.  This silver metallic border jute rug from Serena & Lily is my favorite thing I’ve seen all year. and maybe last year too.  Starting at just $48 for the 2×3, this will make an appearance in my home, and stat!

Wow!  Happy April, guys! Can you believe it?  I’m so so so so happy that spring is finally coming out to play.  This week I even drug out my patio furniture! Goodness knows, there are still cold days and rain in our future, but things are definitely looking up!

Today I’m in Kansas City at Go Blog Social speaking on DIY blogging!  Follow on Instagram for tons of glimpses of the event and if you’re in the area, hit me up!

Have a great weekend, y’all!

Friday Faves 3.28

ONE the most fun little woven basket from Leif is made in Senegal and is just $20. TWO personalized stationary that isn’t the least bit stuffy from Rifle Paper Co. $130 for 50 custom cards. THREE a Dulce de Leche recipe with labels made using Makr! FOUR I’ve been eyeing this Kilim pouf from Target, and now its on sale for $56. Woo! FIVE have you seen the Oh Joy! for target line?  I love every single piece.  These wall decals are just $7 for the pack of four. SIX a cotton hammam towel could double as a warm springtime wrap, $28.

 

Happy Friday, guys!  Did you have a good week?  I was super busy, but all around had a great one.  I got a lot done, had two fun dinners with friends, and started working out again.

This weekend, I am going to try my hand at some relaxing.  We’ll see how this goes!

ONE a new take on inspiration prints.  Some of us more *ahem* uptight people might need a push in the ‘why the hell not’ direction.  Prints start at just $18 from alphonnesine. TWO I’ve been working on some robbery replacement shopping and want this leather cosmetic bag from Mark & Graham.  I totally know that white is the wrong choice for a cosmetic bag, especially at $79 but refer to number one.  Maybe I’ll use it for a travel cord bag (I keep all chargers, wires in a pouch when traveling – you should try it!). THREE little colorful bowls are one of my weaknesses!  These gems from Paper Source were taunting me all day Wednesday, but I was shopping for work, so I had to keep myself in check… but at $8 each, I might have to go back and snag a few… for styling posts, of course! FOUR this chair will be my downfall. I have at least 6 magazine pages torn out of homes with this beauty and until this moment didn’t know where it was from.  Enter, the $1500 woven chair by Ralph Lauren. The price is ridic, but boy is it gorgeous!  Maybe one day… FIVE I’m not a huge pink person, but I love how this Roger Rug from Lulu & Georgia is more of a subtle blush.  It would look really great in even neutral modern homes.  It also comes in lots of other colors! What I love about Lulu & Georgia’s rugs is that the come in every size possible, so anyone can add a little fun to their floors without completely re-doing a room.

 

Happy first Friday of SPRING you guys!  Who’s excited?  It’s been such a long long winter, I couldn’t be happier to see the sunnier, warmer days on the horizon. This week has been a long one.  I do some freelance styling work for a local company and have had the majority of the week devoted to sourcing props and shooting an upcoming campaign.  So this weekend, I am going to be hunkering down and finishing my closet, doing laundry, getting the house put back together after the closet reno, and hopefully reading my book!

Friday Faves 3.14

ONE I am obsessed with the ‘cut corners’ mirror from Terrain.  It’s a decent price at $198 for a good mirror and want it for my vanity, but it’s a little too big for the space! TWO pretty levels of blush are perfect for spring and I love how neutral the nightfall votives from bhldn are.  $48 for a set of eight. THREE new arrival in the shop!  Les Pointelles Prints are now available from Grandiflora and are just $28/print.  FOUR how adorable are these luminous dot pillows from Anthropologie? I love the foil print in a slightly ikat dot.  They’re $58 each. FIVE I’m not huge on mid-century style, but I love this nook console from West Elm for it’s understated glamour and lots of places to stick things, $499. SIX I can’t even imagine the handwork that goes into creating these porcelain twig spoons from Michiko Shimada.  They’re $48 for the set of two.

 

Happy Pi Day Friday! I used to love Pi day in school.  I can only remember 9 digits out, but I think that’s good after 20ish years of those memory competitions. It’s been a good week over here, I’ve done a little shopping to replace some of my stolen items.  Some new sneakers will come in handy for what is supposed to be a warm and sunny weekend.  I ended up with these. I also re-bought my hairdryer and curling iron this week, so I won’t be rocking the ponytail this weekend when I go out.

I had the opportunity to chat for over an hour last night with one of my very favorite blog friends, Clara!  It’s just so wonderful to reconnect with people who are as uplifting and encouraging as she is.

I’m excited for my first weekend at home in a few weeks and plan on finishing my master bedroom closet! I’m really looking forward to it.  Is there anything on your weekend agenda you’ve been looking forward to all week?

 

P.S. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE vote for me in the final round of the Better Homes and Gardens Makeover Madness!  If I win today, I go to their home offices to compete in a craft challenge!  Wouldn’t that be so fun!  I’d love your vote!

Friday Faves 3.7

ONE a pastel cake stand would not only go wonderfully with this week’s DIY, but it’s perfect for spring and summer! £49 from Idyll Home. TWO I saw this pop color chair in person last week and it’s a much more orangey, coral red than it looks here.  It’s a gorgeous piece and I might be a color convert… maybe. At just $59 from Ikea, who wouldn’t be? THREE it’s not a home item, but it certainly makes my faves list this week.  I might have to buy myself a little something! Bien Fait scarf is just so darling and is on sale at $14.50 from Madewell.  FOUR a table runner… with confetti printed on it.  I think this is the perfect thing to take you from early spring through summer, so for $55 you can decorate for half the year. done. FIVE I just love baskets, and if they’re dipped, dyed, or have have sort of weave interest, I’m game. The set starts at $38 from Hard to Find.

 

So, we made it.  No doubt it’s been a rough week for me.  Aside from what’s been going on with the break-in, I had to turn around after just a day at home and head down to Atlanta for the Spring Home + Gift fair where I’m exhibiting my Grandiflora line for the first time.  I am SO SO excited to show you guys on Monday what I did with my booth.  You really won’t believe the transformation from convention center curtained booth to a ‘retail’ space designed with Grandiflora in mind.  Aside from the show, I’ve never been to Atlanta, so I’m enjoying some free evenings to explore.  If you’ve been to Atlanta (or live here) let me know your suggestions!

Are you guys up to anything fun this (march!) weekend?

ONE fun and funky flavors of jam from m. greenwood take a cheese platter to the next level!  Pair balsamic strawberry with brie and grapefruit with bleu cheese. TWO painterly stroke towels from fateyedesign are almost too pretty to use. I might turn them into something like this.  THREE cut end coasters $12 from Aloe Designs are just a cool $18 and are definitely darling. FOUR tiny little herb snippers are perfect fun gifts for crafty ladies or gardeners alike. FIVE little bamboo utensils are painted in the perfect shade of sunset coral.  $22 from Mr & Mrs P. SIX Rose scented salts for soaking in the bath from Oh So Pretty, they smell absolutely divine!

 

All of these gorgeous items were in our swag bag here in Palm Springs! I’m so happy to get to know these brands and their creators through their fabulous products.  I’ve having an AMAZING time in Palm Springs and it couldn’t be a better time for me to get out of the winter weather. It’s so refreshing to have the sun and warmth so plentiful. I’m crafting up a storm today on some projects and new ideas that I’m sure you guys will love!

Have an amazing weekend!

ONE doesn’t this darling crux pillow from Blu Dot look like this table runner I made a while back?  I do love the lofty 3D texture of this one, though! $79. TWO the wooden Kai table lamp is modern and natural, just the way I like things.  $88 from Joss & Main.  THREE script wire messages for your wall are whimsical and unique! I might have to try a DIY on this one, though! $48 from Anthropologie. FOUR a color blocked enamel casserole dish is probably the most trendy casserole dish (can I call I casserole dish trendy?) I’ve ever seen. $68 from Brooke Farm General Store. FIVE did you guys see Mandy’s house tour on Design*Sponge?  It’s gorgeous and a must-read! SIX I love a good bar cart and this one from Anthropologie is the perfect mixture of rustic/natural and pretty, $498.

It’s been a great week, hasn’t it?  It wasn’t frigid out, we got a lot done around the house, and I prepared a ton for my upcoming Grandiflora trade show in Atlanta. Today I’m headed to Ikea with my mom for some display shelving for the show, we’re doing some  bedroom renovations (coming in a post on Monday!), and having dinner today with some good friends… so basically doing all of my favorite things in one weekend.

What is on your agenda?
