Friday Faves 9.13

friday faves 9.13

 

ONE Sequined basket is all shine when closed and is the perfect mixture of natural and bling.  I love it! $40 from Brilliant Imports. TWO get ready for fall with these skull appetizer plates from Z Gallerie.  $32 for a set of four. THREE gilded foil liners combine two of my favorite things – cupcakes and shiny things. $6 for a set of six from Bake it Pretty. FOUR you’d be surprised how versatile a metallic drum stool can be.  I move mine into different rooms for different occasions – I wish I had about three! This one is one sale for $349 from abc home. FIVE a need to find a fun piece of furniture so that I can buy these jute knobs from West Elm.  And they’re just $9 each! SIX stylish and small, the Rook Lamp from BluDot is jam-packed with perfection, $299. SEVEN a love the grayish brownish mossy color of this pebbly throw from H&M home, $80.

 

It was a big week for us over here at House of Earnest.  We announced the launch of our new home + decor line, Grandiflora, and couldn’t be more humbled by the feedback and encouragement from you all.  Thank you for being so wonderful!

I will tell you, however, that developing my own line has given me a whole new perspective on the cost of goods.  Some items that I’ve always wondered why they were so expensive (lamps) I’ve quickly found out!  There will be tons more learning for me in the future, no doubt!

This weekend I am presenting at the Country Living fair along side some pretty great talent.  I’ll be sharing how to prepare for the perfect cocktail party from concept through clean up!  I’m a little anxious to talk for the full forty minutes, but then again, if you’ve ever talked to me, you’ll know I could talk a persons leg off when it comes to this topic!

Aside from that, I’m meeting some local Columbus designers out for drinks tonight and trying to get myself prepared for the Better Homes and Gardens Style Spotters Workshop which is next week in New York!  Whew!

Anything big on your agenda?

Friday faves 9.6

 

ONE numbered decorative box is just $30 from Target TWO I might have to snatch this one up for myself!  Criss Cross shag rug is super cute and has a super price on sale at $212 for a 5 x 7 by Threshold for Target. THREE I love these mod coasters for a splash of glam without going over the top. By Jonathan Adler, sold at Zinc Door for $48/set. FOUR jewel tones are huge this fall and a set of two peacock chairs at $199 from World Market are perfect since you’ll be having tons of guests over! FIVE lucite letters make great gifts and I can think of about 10  DIYs I’d like to do with them.  $68 from C Wonder. SIX for a towel holder that isn’t boring, this hexagon option from Urban Outfitters is a fab choice, and at only $14, it’s a steal!

I’m leaning a lot toward jewel tones and plush, lux finishes for fall this year.  I’m normally a harvest-y type person, but all of the moody glam that is out there might have a spot in my home and still go along well with the other decor.

This weekend, I am so excited that both Matty and I will be at home together, at the same time for the first time in over a month.  Crazy, huh?  I plan to relax, get some small DIYs completed and hang out with friends.  What is on your weekend agenda?

ONE a mini crystal orb light packs a punch for small spaces and the price is pretty small too!  $80 from Super Light Deal.  I just bought it for my hallway! TWO I love little personalized trinket boxes.  They are great, functional decor for vignettes, dressers, and bathrooms.  This one is $69 from Mark and Graham. THREE little reminders for the start of the school year – even if you’re not headed back to the classroom. Simple reminders pencil set is just $12 from AmandaCatherineDes. FOUR the shape and finish of this cane chair from World Market is perfect, and the price at $120 is pretty perfect too. FIVE kind of a jerk move, I put this on the faves today and then I bought it!  It will look just perfect this fall in my kitchen, so I couldn’t resist.  More great stuff from BeebeLaRue is still available, however (sorry!!). SIX hand knit geometric pillow covers give the right amount of cozy to a couch. $49 each from Arctic Apparel.

 

My favorite finds this week might show you that I’m amping up for autumn around here.  There is this perfect sweet spot in the year where it’s still warm, the sun shines brightly, but there is an underlying cool to the air and football is on the TV.  This is the time of the year where tomatoes and squash are at their perfect ripeness, farmers markets are teaming with amazing things, and I just revel in it.

My husband is off to a bachelor party this weekend, so I’m going to enjoy the weather, maybe cook a few things with my end of summer produce and work on some projects.  I few of you asked about this rug and I know I’ve been holding out on you, but I’m announcing the source next week!  So hold tight!

Have a FABULOUS Friday and weekend out there!

Friday Faves 8.23

 

ONE Stockholm cabinet from Ikea is a nice modern and airy design.  If you think china cabinets are too fussy, this might be the one for you, $399. TWO copper mugs are something we recently acquired and they’re not just for moscow mules!  Even beer tastes frosty and delicious out of them!  They’re a bit of an investment at $25-$30 a piece from Mark and Graham, but will be one of those things you pass down. THREE I just loved the design on this grey pillow cover from a new (to me) store, Spartan, $110. FOUR these purl baskets are big enough to store pillows and blankets and are soft and dimensional as well.  £69 for the set of three from Made.  FIVE a cafeteria style acacia partition plate would be so cute for little canapés.  The sleek wooden design certainly is an upgrade to those plastic things we used back in school. $23 from Muji.

So, I’ve been at home for less than 24 hours and I’m taking off again (this time with Matt) for a lake weekend with my girlfriends and their husbands in Tennessee.  I am hoping to catch up with some of by best friends, relax a bit, and hopefully catch a little sun.  I didn’t see the sun for the past 10 days in Hong Kong and I am feeling the sans-sunray blues.

I’ll be back on Monday with a few snapshots from my recent travels and a really fun giveaway!

See you next week!

ONE a new 2013/2014 planner from poppin is cheap at $15 and will keep you on track from now through the new year and since it’s 18 month, you won’t be lugging two calendars around when it comes time to switch over. TWO I can’t stop with the scandinavian crosses!  This black and white pillowcover by Pencil Me In Stationary is minimal, stylish, and won’t break the bank at $38.  THREE It’s easy for baskets around the house to look old, but the chunky weave and bold handle design on this Nate Berkus Basket is current and cool.  Plus, it’s just $10! FOUR I’m obsessed with these smooth walnut wood cutting boards by DominikWoods.  They would be just as perfect on display as they would be for chopping veggies, $89. FIVE gold and white coasters by The Coastal are on sale for $22 (set of four) and come in a few beautiful designs.

Happy Friday, guys!  I’ve already finished work for the day in mainland China and am back in Hong Kong enjoying a fabulous hot pot dinner tonight with some colleagues and friends.  If you’ve never had Chinese hot pot, it’s like fondue, but they use broth instead of oil and the selection of things to cook ranges from a slew of Chinese veggies to cuddlefish balls, shrimp dumplings, kobe beef (sliced super thin) and fish skins (which are actually quite delicious).

This weekend, I am excited to do a little bit of shopping, drink some champagne on the terrace of one of the tallest buildings in HK, have brunch at a fancy hotel, and possibly hit up the pool at my hotel if it stops raining.  It’s a little bit of a departure from the renovations and DIYs that have been consuming my past few weekends.

Have a good one out there and come back Monday for little project which really improved the privacy situation in one of my rooms!

ONE I’ve had my eye on this wall sconce for a while now and might need a couple for my office plans (which I intend to share soon!) The black matte exterior with a shiny copper lining is what I’m all about.  £105 from Idyll Home. TWO this metal drum table from World Market is on sale for $69 and I’m contemplating a purchase! THREE pinched and glazed, could a planter be prettier? Handmade in Brooklyn and at $40, it also comes in Aqua and a glorious dark teal from Leif. FOUR ream, muddle, repeat. The perfect cocktail tools are simple and beautiful. Fruitwood reamer and muddler are $42 for the set from Jayson Home. FIVE I have a thing for little scandi crosses and the coral color is perfect for a summer transition to fall.  iPhone case from Pencil Me In Stationary for $40.  SIX what could be more classic that tortoiseshell? These highball glasses would add a serious pop of awesome to my home bar.  $48 for the set of four from Design Darling.

 

I’ve got a lot on my plate this weekend before I leave for Hong Kong on Monday.  I’m going to DIY paint the walls in my bar, prep and photo a few posts for my time out of the country, produce a styled wedding shoot that I’m organizing along with a fabulous local photographer, do some laundry to prepare for my trip and then pack!  Eeek.  I’m going to need some serious lists to get it all done. If you see me running around town like a maniac in workout clothes, I’m not working out, I just GSD better in activewear (haha).

I hope your weekend is going to be fun and relaxing!  Tell me, what are your plans?

ONE lines rug from Idyll Home, £85. TWO The cutest poof I’ve ever seen.  It looks to be sold out at Nordstrom, but I’m on a mission to source it from somewhere.  I’ll keep you guys in the loop. THREE I love this strut desk from bludot that Victoria just ordered and I’m thinking about this Navy version for my office.  I need a big desk for two, so even at $699, this might have to work! FOUR if you struggle with arranging flowers, you can follow my tutorial, or buy this vase from Kate Spade Saturday with a helpful grid for $70. FIVE I hope you didn’t miss the Trade&Made reveal this week, but if you need you must check it out. I LOVE this keychain by Damask Love. SIX If you’re looking to amp up you photos, this tutorial from Lark & Linen is just perfect.

It’s Friday, but there isn’t much relaxing in my future.  I have so much work to do this weekend, but I’m not complaining, I am pretty excited to work on the projects that I’ve got lined up and can’t wait to show you guys!

I might work a little beer tasting or some reading in – any good books you’d recommend?

ONE Raza lace plate and zig zag platter are the perfect hint of cool blue for a summer night dinner, $13 and  $25 from Crate & Barrel. TWO named for clouds, the cumulus and stratus double old fashion glasses would be just as beautiful in Christmas as in summer. $6.95 each from CB2. THREE I love this more natural update to the starburst – a woven mirror would look great along with some wall baskets from yesterday’s post! $148 each from Serena & Lily.  FOUR black and white blocked stripe napkins look just like a rug I used to have and still love.  Maybe these napkins from A Sunny Afternoon Co. will be a good temporary replacement at $26 compared to the cost of a new rug. FIVE I’ve been eyeing these monogram boxes from C. Wonder for a few months now.  I might have to break down this weekend and spend the $78. SIX this iphone case reminds me of mexican hand painted tile and I think I need that in my life.  $18 from CocoLake.

 

It’s finally Friday!  With the 4th of July holiday, my personal vacation, and the Chicago trip last weekend, this was my first full week in the office for July and it’s felt like it. I’m ready to finally have a weekend at home to get caught up.  I’ll be making my Trade & Made creation this weekend to share with you all next Wednesday and I’m SO excited to see what the 12 other bloggers create as well.

What is on your weekend plan list?

ONE this pretty mint soap dish from Ross Labs brought a smile to my face, $32. TWO a cottony and cool summer blanket from Terrain is just perfect for warm evenings or picnics, and the pattern is pretty awesome too! $68. THREE octagon cutting board is the right bit of whimsey for a minimal kitchen.  $65 from Douglas + Bec. FOUR colorful, but not too crazy, floral mugs from Idyll Home are ideal at £6.50. FIVE I’ve been eyeing this brushed gold sconce forever now, I might just need to get it for something.  What that something is, I don’t know yet! $149 from Crate & Barrel. SIX back and white napkins will go with everything and the cool design will amp up dinnertime. $20 for the set of four from CB2.

This weekend, I’m headed off to Chicago on my first ever trip for the big adventure.  I’m excited and nervous and cannot wait to tell you guys about it all so soon!  I’m hoping to squeeze in a bit of fun and maybe some shopping as well.

Have a phenomenal weekend and let me know what fun you have planned!

 

p.s.  You can shop all of these faves in one place and take a look at the other things I’ve been ‘keeping’ at Keep.com!

ONE light up your night with this pretty globe and rope lantern from Dwell Studios.  It sure is pretty, but at $390, maybe it’s a DIY idea.  TWO ‘hooked’ bottle opener would be a cute hostess gift for a summer weekend at your friend’s lake house. $16 from Terrain. THREE lovely painterly dinnerware from Anthro is all between $12-$18.  Pretty nice! FOUR who says outdoor pillows have to be in crazy color?  This beautiful neutral embroidered outdoor pillow is perfect, comes in different designs, and is on sale ($39) at West Elm! FIVE a mixture of sand-repellant cotton and terry make the perfect beach towel. This is one of those things that would be my favorite year after year. $83 from Nine Space. SIX pop of pink caddy for anything from utensils to paint brushes.  $22 from The Land of Nod.

I had a partial work week this week after a three day ‘stay-cation’ and it’s been just fabulous.  I got so much done around the house and was able to really unplug my brain from the office and let go a little.  Still, I’m happy that a Friday was right around the corner and I get to spend some more time doing my Erin things and hanging out with Matty.

This weekend, I’ve got a few big projects up my sleeve (soon to be shared!) and hope to get some work done on them!  What is on your agenda?
