Friday Faves 5.30

bentwood chair, prosecco, bridal shower ideas, picnic basket, grandiflora home and decor,

ONE This has got to be the prettiest bridal shower idea I’ve seen in a long time… bright colors, lots of gorgeous details and a flamingo cake, what else could a girl want?  The whole party was the brainchild of Brittany from The House That Lars Built.  Pop over here to see all of the amazing photos.  TWO when the weather gets warmer, my drinks get colder.  Since I’m not a huge white wine person, I usually stick to prosecco all summer long… mixed with other things or plain, it’s the perfect summer sparkler.  La Marca mini bottles work perfectly for a little here and there without opening a large one. THREE I don’t know why I like this golden glittery horseshoe, I just do.  It would be a really darling little object d’art for the home. $24 from Cast and Crew. FOUR I love this sculptural and modern side chair and guess what?? It’s only $89… believe it! FIVE the most adorable picnic basket ever. That’s all. $52 from Provisions. SIX wow! You guys really like some handwoven rugs!  All of my geometric pink rugs sold out and I only have one of every other color left. crazy town!  $32 from Grandiflora Home + Decor.

 

Yay!  It’s Friday!  This week was a busy one! Lots of work and play was crammed into a four day work week.  I’m working feverishly on the Luau party (shopping details to come next week) and getting ready for a few business trips that are coming up as well.

This weekend we are hanging around Columbus, chilling with friends and enjoying our patio! I hope you all have a relaxing weekend in store as well!

Friday Faves 5.23

ONE ‘lets do cocktails’ print is a perfect little friday reminder and one of my favorite pieces from Evelyn Henson, $20. TWO hand embroidery on black leather, this Lizzie Fortunato clutch is a beauty, $350.  THREE I bought two of these natural woven poufs today for our patio!  They make the perfect little seats or place to prop your feet. $49 each from Target. If you text patio5 to 827438 you can get a $10 for patio/outdoor purchases over $50! yay! FOUR a loved this pom pom trim summer pom pom blanket that Ashley from Sugar and Cloth made!  It is weirdly similar to project I have to show you on monday, but who cares!  There are plenty of pom poms to go around!  FIVE this decorative glass tray is perfect for holding little baubles and offering up a daily reminder.  It would be a wonderful graduation gift for a young lady! $68 from Nordstrom. SIX tortoise tumblers have just a touch of glitter and are on sale! $6 from Pier1 Imports.

 

Woohoo!  It’s the weekend, guys!  It was a bit of a rough week for me, but the end is in sight and I’m going to take a cue from the print above and have a few cocktails.  We have a happy hour scheduled tonight with friends, a little bit of a splurge dinner tomorrow with other friends, and of course a memorial day party or two to attend.

In between the partying we are going to do a little more work on our patio this weekend to gear up for the big luau that we’ll be having next weekend!  I couldn’t be more excited.

Friday Faves 5.16

ONE bergama butterfly chair from CB2 in the most awesome, sunny, and beachy pattern.  It’s a SoCal take on a classic for $249. TWO this hand made french butter dish is $48 from Paperclaystudio, but anything handmade and this beautiful is worth every penny. THREE you know when you have a piece of clothing that says ‘hand wash’?  This is the stuff you need to use.  Delicate wash from Caldrea is my go-to when sudsy-ing up fragile or hand-wash only clothes in the bathroom sink.  Not to mention it smells amazing, $10. FOUR Artsy, metallic animals are the perfect accent to these double old-fashioned glasses by Jonathan Adler for JCPenny.  $30 for a set of four. FIVE original watercolor painting from Courtney Khail is so lively and rich.  I love this pineapple painting for how bright and cheerful it is! $350. SIX This color blocked towel reminds me of a creamsicle! It’s woven chambray on one side, terry on the other, and only $24 from Leif.

 

It’s been quite the week!  I am on-location at a shoot for Pier one this week and it’s been a lot of fun!  I’ve posted a few photos on Instagram, but I had to opportunity to have professional hair and makeup done and to work with an amazing crew to complete some editorial type videos!  I can’t wait to share with you guys!

I head home tomorrow, so I’ll have plenty of time to re-coup before I hit it hard again next Monday!

Anything fun in your corner of the world this week?

Friday Faves 5.9

Friday Faves 5.9

ONE galvanized tiered platter make summer entertaining easier and nixes the need for loads of surface space outside.  $50 from Crate & Barrel.  TWO subtle mirror print pillow allows those of us who are a little less flamboyant with our home decor still capture a beautiful trend. Available from House of Rym for €40. THREE tidy and trendy, this modern side table comes in lots of variations from Habitables in Madrid (but ships to US!), $305. FOUR an outdoor rope rug in navy and white is perfectly preppy from Serena & Lily and the price ($395) for a generous 5′ x 7′ isn’t too bad! FIVE I am in love with these little pom pom shorts from LJC designs.  I have been eyeing them for over a year and today, I’m pulling the trigger. SIX celestial coasters from Anthropologie would have worked with yesterday’s post as well!  I love that each one is gorgeously different and made from hand-glazed clay. $32 for a set of four.

 

It’s the weekend!! We have a jam-packed one, what about you? We have three birthday parties (a 1 year old, a 32 year old, and a 94 year old) and Mother’s day.  Whew, that alone is enough to take up the entire weekend!

We’ve been working very feverishly on our patio to get it ready for summer and I hope to show you some pics throughout the weekend on Instagram.  Matt just finished building an outdoor kitchen to house our Green Egg and the grill and we need to break this bad boy in!!  It has enough space for food prep and a bar set up if needed as well.

We also planted a big tree (Red Bud) and lots of little plants (hostas, lily of the valley, bleeding hears, geraniums, cone flowers, lavender, and azalea), then mulched the entire thing.  It was a solid 4 days of landscaping work and although I am notorious for my black thumb, I am trying to be so so good this year and water my plants regularly to keep them alive.

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!

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!

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!
