Color Story: Fall

It’s no secret that fall is my absolute favorite time of year.  I start getting excited for the clothes, the colors, and the cool nights.

Grey has been the trend for the last few years, but this year there is a change in direction.  I’m seeing browns everywhere, and I think that warm caramel will replace the greys of the previous years.  Pair it with navy for a classic preppy look, or combine it with warm burgundy and your summer pinks for a pretty autumnal flair. Greens are still going to be big, so you don’t have to get rid of the pretty mint throw you bought for summer, just pairing it with a teal or jade colored cushion is all you need to move into the fall.

It can be hard in home decor to change things out seasonally, but a new pop of art or a pretty dish will help to register change.  I’m really eyeing those pillows from West Elm and think they might be mine soon.  What do you think?

Are you ready for fall?  Or still trying to squeeze a little more sunshine out of summer?

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Details with // Mandy from Fabric Paper Glue

Our regular bi-monthy ‘Details with’ column was moved to Tuesday this week to allow for a very exciting give-a-way tomorrow (of which I instagrammed a sneak peek this weekend)!

I’m excited to be showing you a few special glimpses from the home of Fabric Paper Glue creator and writer, Mandy.  If you aren’t familiar with Fabric Paper Glue, Mandy has the most ingenious ideas for everything from cocktails to crafts.  She is an avid sewer and makes beautiful clutches for her Etsy shop (like this gem, who’s cream twin I bought earlier this year and have instagrammed a few times).  I always look to Fabric Paper Glue for some colorful inspiration and the courage to add it to my home (you know I love my neutrals).  Keep Reading for more special details from her home!

House of Earnest Out and About

It’s been quite a weekend! I tweeted a little hint last weekend about the photo shoot that we were doing for Houzz, and tweeting about a month ago for a style shoot I was working on for a (then) undisclosed project.  Today I’m here to show you whats been going on behind the scenes! Firstly, our ‘Houzz Tour’ went live yesterday and I’ve been flooded with wonderful questions and comments ever since (except one nasty comment, but that’s just how some people are). Shooting my own whole home in a day was a little hectic, but with my return from India, I was up against a deadline. It’s surprising the things you see in photos that you don’t even realize on an everyday basis (cords, namely) but it was a fun experience nonetheless.  Below, is a slideshow filled with the photos only, but you can click through to read the full interview!

The undisclosed project, is a style shoot I was working on to reflect my style, esthetic and work for a curated collection on Joss & Main, which goes live tomorrow!  The first photo and this last one are just a little peek of the lifestyle look book that we’ve put together to highlight the theme of the event (which, of course, revolves around entertaining) and I’m just indescribably excited about it.  I choose a full collection of products that really showcase the House of Earnest style and I hope you love them.  If you’re new to Joss & Main, it’s a flash sale site which features mini-sales full of common products.  You can join the site HERE so that you don’t have to wait on an invite!

Have a WONDERFUL Monday!

Friday Faves 8.3

ONE studded edge bowl from Ankasa, $95; TWO Rae Dun cheese markers $35 at Nordstrom; THREE globetrotter calendar $20 at anthropologie; FOUR Thomas Paul ‘Moby’ Pillow $78 at Burke Decor; FIVE hand sculpted spoons $48 from Avesha Michael; SIX Thomas Paul bazaar side plates $34 from Burke Decor.

A splash of color and pattern for your Friday!  I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been trying hard to broaden my horizons when it comes to adding color into my home.  I used to be a very neutral, minimal kind of girl, but I’m realizing that adding those pops just intensifies the purity of the neutrals as well.  I hope you’re enjoying this journey for me!

This weekend, I plan to get SO much work done.  I have a lot of projects that are half started and were interrupted by a last minute trip to India, so I’m looking forward to picking them back up and finishing some things off.  Matty’s out of town and I am going to make myself a big bowl of this – a recipe my one of my favorite new bloggers.

What about you?  Any fun plans?

Have a HAPPY Friday guys!

Spa Bathroom in Delhi

Does this view look familiar?  If you follow on Instagram (@houseofearnest) you would have seen this lovely view just a few weeks ago while I was in India.  I was expecting an intense week of hard work, an uneasy stomach, and lots of homeless children (cue scenes from Slumdog Millionaire).

What I got, was an amazingly beautiful, colorful, lush retreat to relax and recharge in between days with my suppliers.  This bathroom was the opulent icing on the cake.  As soon as I walked into the room (at 1am local time) I was immediately smitten and decided that a hot soak was in order.

I think my experience was much different than most.  I was certainly living in the lap of luxury at the Oberoi, but it got me to thinking about the elements I want to include in my own bathroom renovation.  Glass shower cubicles and enclosures? Yes.  Stunning bathroom mirrors with backlighting? Yes. Giant soaking tub with a view of a blue sky (maybe something a little more angular like this)? Yes.

Although my own bath wouldn’t be quite so glam (a little less opulent, and little more natural) there are a lot of cues I can take from this beautiful room.

What about you – what are absolute ‘musts’ in your dream bathroom?

Have a STUNNING Thursday!

The Well-Rounded Entry

All my life, I’ve envied the grand entryways that have a large round table with a large vase of flowers.  You know the ones – welcoming guests and looking chic through the glass front door? I never thought I’d have the pleasure of having the type of ‘foyer’ that could accommodate this design feature, but I was wrong (as I am here and there!).

I’m always toying around with various rooms in my house and after a rug purchase in India for our entry, I got to thinking about the round table (complete with flowers) that I’ve always wanted to have in an entry.  The rug sat there for about a week before I starting moving tables in and out to play with the scale that would be appropriate.  I needed something tall and skinny.

I borrowed a side table from our living room and a marble table top that I’d found thrifting a few years back to combine them into something very simple, but grand enough (thanks to the marble) for the entry I was envisioning.

I piled it with two sturdy design books and a small (gotta keep that scale in mind) vase of flowers.  I know I’m clearly biased, but I love it.  And sometimes it’s just the little details that make you smile and feel wonderful in your home.

Have you done anything lately that you’re exceptionally proud of? Let me know!

 

Have a SUPERB Monday!

Details With // Jenny from Hank and Hunt

Jenny Batt, who writes her own blog, Hank and Hunt as well as contributing for Oh Happy Day, The Sweetest Occasion, and Hellobee, is certainly one busy lady.  Not only is she the contributing DIY editor for some of my favorite blogs, but she’s also a mother to two little boys.  If anyone loves DIYs as much as I do, it’s Jenny.  I am so excited to have her showing three details from her home which keep her smiling.  Here are what these three photos mean to her, in her words:

ONE My newest trophy from the hunt this weekend. I’m crazy over it with my collection of mini plants.  TWO It’s a crazy cheap rug from Ikea that I just love. I have a thing for crazy mishmashes of color. The chair is from my husband’s job as a metal man after college and it’s green. I love green. THREE Faux malachite bowl in the most delicious shades of green.

 

Thanks Jenny!  For those of you who are newer to House of Earnest, every other Wednesday I share three photos from inside the home of influences from around the web in a column called Details With.  I love these little sneak peeks and hope you do you.  You can see past features here!

Have a FANTASTIC Wednesday!
