Target’s latest line with Safavieh has me yelping “That’s from Target?!” left and right these days. I am dying to nab a bunch of these insanely good items for my new addition (which starts in about a week and a half so get ready for lots of renovation posts!) Here’s my most favorite picks right now (get ‘em while they last!):
I have long frequented Hudson, my most favorite home shop in Boston, not only for myself and my clients. Jill Goldberg, the shop’s owner and interior designer, has THE most impeccable taste. Her store installations, changed seasonally, are always so perfectly spot on I end up leaving a visit to the shop with lots of ideas and desires for my own space. So when they asked to become an EOS sponsor I was super thrilled, a more natural fit than this I cannot think of! Here are some shot of the store’s spring look…
And here are some of my current favorites in the shop (you can shop online as well, but if and when you are in Boston’s South End you NEED to go!)
I also saw these new pillows on their Instagram and LOOOOOOOVE them. The gold zipper detail is perfection, no?
I saw this drop dead gorgeous image of the terrace at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York and thought it was fantastic inspiration for anyone’s own patio! I have some of Peter Dunham’s Fig Leaf pillows in my own sunroom and even though it’s been seen everywhere I have to say I STILL love it above all other pillows in my home. Some things just stay fresh, and this print is one of them.
So here’s how I’d translate this terrace into a patio or porch design…
And if the Peter Dunham is too pricey, there is a great alternative on Spoonflower by Domesticate called Tropicali Afternoon.
Windsor chairs are a historic style (first made in the 1700’s) that still are popular today. But not just in country style homes, there are so many modern interpretations not only from current furniture makers but also from the 50’s and 60’s. These chairs offer clean lines and work with a variety of dining tables and decor. Let’s take a look at some room utilizing this long-standing style:
Modern meets traditional:
I love this traditional country room because it has such simplicity that it sneaks into modern territory:
Light grey painted chairs are subtle and classic:
I love these two rooms- one employing more classic chairs within a modern room and another (right) with more modern lines all around.
I love the spindles of these modern Windsor chairs with a sleek Parson’s table and patterned rug.
As you may recall, when it came to picking a dining room table for my open concept kitchen/ dining area I chose to design my own table with the amazing team at Huston & Company in Kennebunkport, Maine. Since then they have added the Gates table to their repertoire (and website) and since then have made quite a few for clients all over the country! Each one is custom and unique to the style and needs of each client (the real beauty of handmade, custom furniture) and this collection of images shows all the variations they’ve gone in size, shape and stain color! I’m working on a new design- a desk- that plays off this style mixed with some campaign influence that we will release in the coming months! I’m so excited!
Here’s the original that sits in my own house:
Wellesley, MA- rectangle table (no leaves) 80″ x 55″ in white oak with dark walnut stain (and check out that light fixture too!)
Wellesley, MA- oval table 75″ x 48″ in red oak with dark walnut stain. (This happens to be a client of mine)
New York, NY- 48″ x 36″ rectangle in white oak with custom wenge stain.
Glencoe, IL- 64″ round in white oak, custom whitewash stain (just like mine).
Newtonville, MA- 73″ diameter round in ash with custom oak stain and removable lazy susan.
Cutchogue, NY- A rectangle version 64″ x 44″ with to 13″ leaves and inlay detail.
(in process in the shop with one leaf)
It’s so fun for me to see how all these different people customized my design. I love, love, loved working with these guys and if you have any custom furniture needs contact them for more information!
