Amazing Designer Inspired Deals!

In my sourcing travels I’ve been seeing a lot of pieces from discount or big box retailers that look MIGHTY similar to some designer items popular right now. Imitation in the sincerest form of flattery, or so they say, and these pieces give very similar (in some cases- identical) looks for a fraction of the price.

Sponsor Welcome: Summer Style with Dear Keaton

I don’t know if I’ve ever enjoyed putting together a sponsor welcome as much as I did this one. Dear Keaton is new online shop for home and fashion and it is so perfectly curated that I want just about one of everything. Truly. I spent SO much time doing this post because I could not help myself- it was so fun.

Here’s a beach ready look featuring a bunch of their spot-on selections- I need all of this to happen for me:

Sweet Inspiration

I am a frustrated baker at heart. I have always LOVED baking, and wish I could translate my creativity and art skills into amazing cakes. Alas, I do not have the time- and when I do, I often get so frustrated by working with icing that I give up and just eat the hot mess I’ve created. So I am in awe with the work of baker/artist/pastry wizard Alana Jones-Mann in Los Angeles.  She makes such incredible cakes and bakes goods- many with clear influences from the design world! Here are a few of my favorites paired with interior compliments!

Can yuo EVEN with this palm leaf wallpaper cake? Because I can’t.

International Delight: Barnaby Lane

I can’t recall where I saw this brand, Barnaby Lane– probably Instagram- but I fell in love with the leather and wood chairs they make. Especially since they come in BLUSH.  A bit of modern design girlie girl heaven if you ask me! Blush leather + wood = a hundred heart eye emojis.

Too bad they are in Australia and don’t ship internationally (but yay for you Australian readers!!!)

I adore this woven leather look- great for a corner in a bedroom or in a pair in a living room.
