Flowers + Fabulousity

Monday, November 18th, 2013

When I tire of the bull that a career in design brings with it (believe me, there’s lots….) I think I’ll open a flower store. After arranging so many flowers for our photo shoots for the book, I found that I kind of have a knack for it.  It’s so peaceful and meditative, and I for one need a bit more of that kind of vibe in my life. So I think when I grow up, I’ll be like Stephanie Schur, the owner of Botany Flowers in California.  Lonny did a great feature on her and I kept thinking (as I virtually flipped the pages)- “Her life looks nice.”

I romanticize retail all the time, it’s a HARD business, but I can’t help but want a little shop like this!

The flowers– oh, the flowers!

And of COURSE she has an incredible home! Naturally!  See more of it and a great interview with her on Jenny Kayne’s blog Rip+Tan:

If you have bookshelves you need ceramic horse bookends (of course), and this little sweet writing desk is great for a small apartment!

That little stool is covered in a VERY pricey Kelly Wearstler fabric and was priced cheaper than 2 yards of just the fabric!

Books+Wine+Puppies

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

I forgot to tell you guys about the coolest bookstore I got to visit while in North Carolina! Picture this- a rambling, two story shop full of vintage books with a wine and espresso bar inside and BONUS, you can bring your dog?!?!  Is there anything better??? Meet the Battery Park Book Exchange in Asheville.

I loved the vibe of this place- layered rugs, mismatched vintage furniture and so many nooks to hide in while looking at books and sipping a nice Pinot.

 I am SO loving that sofa.

If you prefer espresso to wine, there’s this.  I personally, prefer BOTH.

I mean. Yeah. This is pretty much everything. My head just exploded.

And I LOVED their wine glasses with their dog logo!!!

There’s even an outdoor cafe too for those nice days.

This visit reminded me of something though… that I need to get a new camera.  While I am a total Instagram addict, I want to be able to take serious pics for the blog with a real camera.  I’m thinking about the Canon Rebel SL1.  Being small and light get a digital SLR is important- my last Nikon felt like carrying around a brick so I never took it anywhere!  Anyone have it? Thoughts??

Just A Note…

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Am I super late to the game in obsessing over the Letterheady site? Just in case I’m not, it’s an awesome collection of letterhead stationery from famous people througout time (and some not famous people, just some awesome letterhead!) It’s amazing how much a small piece of paper’s design can speak about a person….

(This above would be Eddie Vedder’s. So cool, of course)

Adler Love at All Levels.

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

First of all, can we please have a moment of silence for the new lucite and brass Jonathan Adler line? Specifically the bookcases, for which I’d do unspeakable (possibly illegal) acts?

style_Jacques

Amen.

Most of us can’t swing $2,000 for a bookcase (points to self), but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy some truly luscious Adler wares.  As I just found out (am I the last person to this party?) JCPenney has the Adler Happy Chic line and it has some SICK stuff, y’all!!

Lacquer bookcase (comes in various colors too) and side table.  These look line some other very expensive items I use a lot.

A modern grey sofa with fabulous lines.

A totally gorgeous take on the tuxedo sofa- comes in navy too!

These dining chairs are purely awesome- I can see a set around a white tulip style table in a heartbeat.  Also loving this little tray side table.

I have to admit I kinda freaked over the trim on these ready made drapes in white and tan.  You can never find store bought drapes like this… ever! Pondering the white for a shower curtain actually!

More lacquer- this console is GORGE. You could always replace the pulls with brass (if you were me, and had a serious brass addiction problem)

Screen Shot 2013-03-28 at 7.12.52 AM

Oh there is a double dresser too. Yeah, I know. It’s awesome.

Screen Shot 2013-03-28 at 7.14.05 AM

Cute round pouf (looooove the pattern) and square pouf. Who doesn’t need a couple poufs?

Screen Shot 2013-03-28 at 7.11.44 AMScreen Shot 2013-03-28 at 7.12.03 AM

I am digging the crisp, mid-century modern look of this white and wood tv console and tallboy dresser. Great for a kids room too!

I have a little elephant side table like this one and love it, and this vase is classic Adler.
