Fashion Friday: Black, White & Red All Over

I’ve been noticing that I like to buy things mostly in a few colors- black, white and some form of red/coral. And luckily for me I’ve been seeing a lot of this combo everywhere recently! A season-less palette that can work for you through summer and into fall, you can feel good about picking up pieces in this color family. Here are a collection of my faves right now:


1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10. // 11. // 12. // 13. // 14. (also OBSESSED with this jumpsuit!) // 15. // 16. // 17.

And speaking of black and white, I was looking for some cute black and white baby clothes as a gift the other day and could find nothing. I mean, I know most people like babies dressed in bright colors, but a little graphic black and white never hurt anyone, right? And then I saw a whole black and white toddler collection on Old Navy last night that is TO DIE FOR!!! (Click images for links)

Sponsor Welcome: Serena & Lily

Serena and Lily has long been a favorite shop of mine, yes for baby and kids stuff, but also for big people pieces too! The kids can’t have ALL the fun…

Their upholstered beds and headboards are awesome, I can’t get enough of of the nailhead details.  The daybed with color banded cuff is pretty amazing too, as is the vintage inspired carved wood headboard. You can’t go wrong with any of these.

Some newly released fabrics designed by Serena…

Pretty pink bedding!

Crisp sheets (I love those Gobi ones so much, in lots of color options- and check out the matching towels too!)

I really love the pattern on these throw pillows.

I’ve used this chevron rug several times in projects, and this big stripe flat weave is modern yet casual at the same time.

Some funk and funky dhurries, perfect on their own or layered over other carpet.

Some awesome stools, both upholstered and little wooden ones with white dipped legs!

How about these gorgeous chairs? Available in a variety of leathers and fabrics.

LOVE LOVE this chandelier and inlay mirror. Like, really love.

A cool mid-century inspired desk and a more intricate inlay bone table (would be pretty amazing as bedside tables).

The whipstitch detail on the these towels is so cute! And these baskets are perfect for hampers or storing little things around the house (like dogs toys!)

Okay, we have to discuss SOME baby stuff- I know kids like bright colors but I can’t stop loving these neutral bedding options for infants and babies. This Marlo crib set has been on my radar for years (mix with navy for a boy or coral for a girl), but that new moses basket with geometric sheeting and rope handle details would be the most amazing shower gift.

My mom has always been obsessed with Hanna Andersson for kids (I recall my youngest brother being decked out in their stripe PJ’s his whole childhood) and S&L partnered with them to create their own collection of jammies- so adorable.

Kinda dying over these animal bookends made of faux leather! And how about this little woven play table set? Never seen anything quite like it- so stylish for a toddler’s room!

And speaking of kids, my friend and client who runs children’s site Chic Child has generously offered a special to EOS readers on their new exclusive children’s line with stationery gurus Mrs. John L. Strong! Enter EOS10 at checkout for $10 off your order and free shipping on orders over $100.

Pretty engraved bookplates makes a great shower gift:

And in an attempt to maintain manners for little ones, fill in thank you cards for post birthday and holidays (and check out that gorgeous box).

Mela & Roam Love

Courtney Barton was one of the first blogs I read when she penned Inside the Loop many years ago from her cute bungalow in Texas.  Since then she moved to Malaysia and then back to Texas, had a baby and started a new company called Mela & Roam specializing in gorgeous textiles that she fell in love with in her travels to India and Southeast Asia. How amazing are these little baby blankets??

She has them for us big people too!

She also has a wonderful collection of scarves and kantha throws to choose from:

And finally, these little hide baby moccasins are TO DIE FOR!!!!

And isn;t she just the happiest, cutest thing you’ve ever seen?

Random Goodness.

Sometimes it’s hard to put together a cohesive post. So today I’m going to fill you in on the randomness swimming around in my brain:

Tommy Smythe’s closet is actually IKEA! Shows what paint and some kick ass hardware can do for a space.

When I saw these insanely cute pet pods I couldn’t stop thinking about Cadbury Mini Eggs, my kryptonite and the crack cocaine of candy.

Baxter would straight up KILL for one.

Oh my God, that makes me hungry. And I bet those bad boys are on sale now post Easter! :)

This font, Vermandois is BANANAS good. I love me a good handwritten font. This is the best I’ve seen to date!

This custom silhouette return address stamp is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

A cheaper, daintier alternative to the amazing Hicks pendant seen all over the design world…

I’ve been seriously parched this season. My skin, that is. I feel like I need to re-apply moisturizer right after I’ve just finished applying it. Annoying. So I finally caved and went back to the only one that actually works all day.  Hype usually falls flat, but not in La Mer’s case.

Just ordered one of Rikshaw Designs kurtas for summer. I love them paired with skinny bright colored denim. Easy peasy.

This double vanity is sleek, pretty and CHEAP- under $400!!!

LOVING this adorable animal wallpaper for a child’s room!

Adorable Overload

I found out about the Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose from my pal Kyle Knight of Knight Moves blog and I simply HAD to share since everyone I know currently is having/has had a baby except for maybe one person. And he doesn’t have a uterus. I won’t even get into the fact that I bought one of the DVF for Gap Kids wrap dresses just in case I some day have a baby and it’s a girl. I’ll save that one for my shrink.

But you know how I feel about animals, never mind BABY animals. Did anyone watch Frozen Planet on Sunday? I nearly lapsed into a coma from those polar bear cubs!  I can imagine nothing cuter in a nursery than these modern photographic prints either in a series or one over-scale one! But you can also be a full size, able to feed yourself adult and sport one in a room too!

A few close ups to make you go “awwwwwww”

Good for adult spaces (how does nature create such a gorgeous pink that flamingos get to sport?)
