Friday Faves 3.21

Friday Faves 3.21

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!

What’s on your agenda?

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!

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?

ONE a pretty amazing site with a plethora of vintage goodies, Hunter’s Alley, is home to this gold beveled mirror that is just my style – classic and a bit modern. $275. TWO how amazing are these agate cabinet pulls from West Elm? I don’t even have words for them. At $49 each, they’re a bit pricey, but boy are the gorgeous.  THREE this whole light and airy white collection from target is toying with my emotions.  I want ever piece, but especially these side tables with leather drawer handles. And it’s just $63. I almost can’t resist. FOUR a pretty scalloped planter by Susan Simonini has me thinking ahead to spring. FIVE graphic french windows make a cute little illustration on this ceramic coaster from Wandersketch, $12. SIX during the ‘month of love’ this is a cute doormat to remind all who enter just what a pair you are, $45.  Aside from the obvious association with the holiday, it’s a really darling piece all year and the amazing team at Lulu & Georgia would like to offer you a discount this weekend on their entire site with the code HEARTDAY20

 

Happy Valentine’s Day! Whew, it’s been a busy week! I feel like my heads going to spin off there is so much going on, but I kind of like it that way!  I am preparing for my first ever tradeshow in just three short weeks where I’ll showcase my Grandiflora product to buyers from all over and hopefully they’ll all love enough to sell it in their shops.  I’m both nervous and excited! Have any of you done a trade show before? Tips?

I’ll be preparing most of the day today for our Spanish Tapas party tomorrow and I am excited to heat things up with lots of friends and fun since we’re still dealing with utter cold temps and I’ve resisted going out to dinners.

ONE hand lettered gold XO print would be a perfect gift for her, $28 from Rach Illustrates. TWO carved wood shape salt and pepper shakers are interesting, but classy from Crate & Barrel for $25. THREE I’ve always wanted a moroccan wedding blanket, and I like the darker colors woven through this one from Urban Outfitters, but it’s still a little pricey at $799. FOUR If you’re having a hard time adding a textured tribal look to your home, this striped hemp pillow is a nice place to start. $65 from Nomadic Trading Company. FIVE brass votives from Furbish are the kind of thing you can use or your table or move to your bookshelves or style in a hallway vignette.  They’re totally versatile and quite pretty. $26.50 each. SIX I love this gold triangle wrapping paper.  It’s a great option to have on hand for that ‘pop-up’ party you need to attend. $7 for two sheets.

 

It’s really been a great week here in our corner of the world.  I got my husband back after his man-cation, I had a wonderful dinner with a friend who had moved away, and I’ve been doing some really fun styling work for a local company’s website (I’ll share soon!).

I have a few meetings this weekend and then I’ll be working on my master bedroom closet (details to come)! My sister is coming up from Nashville, so I’m excited to see her in between my work.

What’s on your agenda this weekend?

 

p.s. I sincerely apologize for the confusion with my post yesterday.  I put up a giveaway, but then had some issues with it, so I had to pull it back down to revamp.  It will come back soon!

ONE ‘fortune favors the brave’ print is just the perfect reminder to take that next step.  Three sizes available starting from $18 from FieldTrip. TWO I love natural vachetta leather and this little clutch looks so luxe, but minimal.  It gets more and more beautiful with age and wear (think LV handles!).  The maker, Minimaliste has lots of great shapes, this one is $150. THREE vintage Eames rocker sit’s at the top of my wish list and one day I’ll make the splurge.  $465 from Cast & Crew. FOUR vintage kilim Turkish rug is so vibrant and would add a gorgeous splash of color to an otherwise neutral room.  This one is a large 6.5′ x 10′, but the shop have several sizes available. FIVE navy blue mini triangle pillow would be the perfect addition to my sofa in an effort to bring some navy into the living room. $48 from ShapesColors. SIX my skin is freaking out over here. I need to buy some serious lotion to stave off the winter dryness!  This chamomile and grapefruit body butter from Beridan Naturals is all natural, super thick, and calling my name, $32.

 

Well, I’m back from Utah and getting back into the swing of things over here.  It’s been super cold all week, so we’ve been hunkering down, catching up on our DVR, cooking dinner at home, and drinking lots of wine.  I just started watching ‘Girls’ and can’t decide if I like it or hate it… any watchers?  Of course, the highlight of my Sunday nights is Downton Abbey.  I just love it.

Matty is going away for a boys ski trip this weekend, so I’ll be catching up on some of the work I missed while at Alt, watching girly movies, and possibly treating myself to a manicure.

What are your plans this weekend?

 

p.s.  Big news – I’ll be having a virtual garage sale next week starting on MONDAY!  Follow @erinsclosetcleanout on instagram for all the details!  I’ll be auctioning everything from bags, shoes, accessories, and clothes to some furniture and home accessories!  I’ll be sharing complete rules on Facebook, so be sure to follow there too!

ONE cool, abstract chevron makes a cool pattern for this Addison duvet cover from Crane & Canopy, $99 for a Queen.  TWO I love  marble anyway, but mixed with wood, it sure makes a gorgeous cutting board!  $48 for the small cutting board and $78 for the large from Terrain. THREE the new Steven Alan for West Elm stuff is amazing!  This papier mache table tops my list, $299. FOUR the Viv wall hook won’t leave you hanging, a beautiful brushed gold geometric hook with ample space for everything from coats to handbags to umbrellas. $38 for a set of two from Grandiflora. FIVE I was miserably sick all week last week and this menthol bath soak looks like the perfect way to rehab.  Also, I can’t get over the art deco tin of the cough suppressant rub from J.R. Watkins and wish I’d found it a week sooner! $10 each. SIX bring some green into the winter months with this monogramed emerald green leather tote.  $199 from Mark and Graham. SEVEN cute grey geometric  letterpress coasters just make me smile! $15 for a set of 10 from Grey Line Letterpress.

Aren’t these grays and greens so soothing for the winter weather months?  I suppose if I can’t get my sunroom, I can just include some greens into my home until spring pops along.  Speaking of green, last night at Alt Summit, there was a giant party and the entire theme was green!  It’s one of my favorite colors, so I was happy to be surrounded by it. Check out my green dress choice and see other highlights from the conference on Instagram!

I’m heading out today for another full day of learning at Alt and then a series of mini parties tonight before I head home Saturday.

Have a wonderful weekend you all!

How fun and girly are the faves today?  I’m not usually a big pink person, but the mixture of blush and gold is just something that I can’t resist.

This weekend, I’m going to be preparing for Alt Design Summit which is next week. I’ll be doing a little shopping and thinking about a strategy for what brands and bloggers I want to connect with to ensure I don’t miss anyone!   I’m so excited to see some friends and get all dressed up… something that doesn’t happen too often when working from home!

What is on your weekend agenda?
