For a change of pace, I thought I'd start a new column on the blog sharing some of my favorite things. These are things that are inspiring me, styles that have my attention, and trends I'm diving into headfirst. I share a lot of these things over on Pinterest (are you following along?) and I'm excited to share these interest here with you so we can explore them in greater depths and get inspired together!
Things I'm Loving:
Vintage Glassware: Probably not a huge shocker, I'm forever styling vintage glassware into my instagram photos and now even selling some my collection in the vintage section of the shop. This iridescent set is one of my favorites and will be available this evening during our weekly Tuesday restock at 7 PM EST.
Garden Patios: I bought my first home last spring and wow. Every inch of this property needs work. Thankfully its 1980s construction is saving us from the nightmare of asbestos or major structural issues, but the cheap materials and beige on beige on beige has got to go. As the weather is warming up I'm shifting my attention to my backyard and planning a major makeover on that space, asap. These spaces are inspiring me to use a mixture of patio pavers and small stones to create a garden-centric outdoor living space.
Matcha Magnolia: From this candle collection I designed with Anthropologie and Capri Blue. This scent is so soft, fresh, and lightly sweet. Even unlit the scent adds a delicate fragrance to any room it's placed in. I began designing this product waaaaay back in early fall 2015! There's a lot of behind the scenes work happening both in my studio and at Anthropologie to make these designs come to life. We work collaboratively to design the products and Anthropologie wonderfully handles all of the logistics of commercial manufacturing so we can offer these designs far and wide. Because of this extensive process it often takes well over a year before the designs hit the shelves at your local Anthro stores. Seeing (and smelling) these candles in real life is a total dream. This is one of those products that I'll be stocking up on while they're available. Click here to shop!
High Contrast: If you've noticed bolder colors and deeper hues in the collection it's no accident. I'll always love a good pastel, but lately I'm feeling inspired by darker colors at the table complemented by brightly colored fruits and vegetables, sparkly cocktails, and soft stone and wood tones to balance the scene. Tonight during the restock we're releasing a brand new dessert plate color (for the first time in over a year!) that celebrates this bold, high luxe, contrasty look. (Signup for the newsletter here to be the first to know what this new dessert plate color is!)
What are you loving this February? I'd love to hear in the comments!
