Blockprint & Beaches: Welcome Pomegranate, Inc.

Monday, January 6th, 2014

I know in a good portion of the country the weather is dipping into historically low temperatures, and so I thought a little sunshine and bright color would do us all a lot of good. Don’t get me wrong, I am not going to be all “it’s after Christmas, therefore let’s talk about spring non-stop”…..oh no!  We have a WAYS to go before the s-word is on our tongues. I mean, I saw shorts and bikinis on the “new arrivals” racks at Bloomie’s and nearly had a fit.  But when we face below zero temperatures we need a little hope, am I right?  And what’s happier than the beach, dining outside and bunches of block prints? Not much! It’s a great time to introduce a new EOS sponsor Pomegranate, Inc too.

How badly do you want to be here right now?

A summery table.

I adore a good block print- I’ve used this paper in a powder room and it’s lovely.

Caftans and tunics in a bohemian print are my FAVORITE thing to wear in the summer (India Hicks looks pretty stunning in this one!)

AHHHHHHHH….. yes please.

So let’s so a little daydreaming about setting a summer table with these awesome block print napkins (I adore the anchor ones and actually got my mom the oven mitts for her new beach house for Christmas!)

Their raffia placemats with inset border are a favorite of mine.  But they also have these pom pom trimmed ones and print as well.  If tablecloths are more your thing, there is a BEVY in similar prints to the napkins above too!

They introduced great bathrobes (love this one), pajamas and tunics (on sale!) in their prints as well!

I mean, come on! The little anchor tunic? I know a few little ladies who would be just DARLING in this!

This settee is classic and amazing while this little wire side chair is modern and feminine (and would be so cute pulled up to a vanity table!)

The mix of traditional and modern is great- like this console table in black and gold and brass side table.

Bundle Up with Burberry.

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

My very first designer shoe purchase in my adult life was at the Burberry store on Newbury street. I must have been 23 or 24 and I was walking by the store, gazing in the windows when I saw a pair of classic Burberry plaid point toe pumps on a sale rack. Being an 8.5 shoe, I am totally used to never finding great sale shoes in my size, so I was totally assuming they were going to be a 10 or a 6. But I went to check anyways. Lo and behold, they were an 8.5 and on sale for $85 marked down from $375. I could not believe my fashion karma and I absolutely floated back to my apartment high off my amazing find proudly swinging my Burberry shopping bag. I wore those heels into the GROUND, they were insanely comfortable and I was so excited about having a touch of that iconic plaid in my possession. The day I had to throw them out was a sad one, I felt like they deserved a burial, but since then my love for Burberry’s classic, British design has remained.  Now my focus has moved onto acquiring a classic trench, one I would keep forever and hand down to a daughter as the most killer “vintage” piece.

Here are a few of my favorite current Burberry picks for the season- a little something for everyone.

Sponsor Welcome: Circa Lighting

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

There are some vendors that we use over and over again in our daily work at EGD, and Circa Lighting is certainly one of them. So when they asked to become a sponsor I could not think of anything more natural. Their massive and gorgeous collection of lighting is astounding and a designer favorite the world over.  I think it’s an invaluable resource for everyone to have in their back pocket for times of lighting need- here are some of my favorites:

Flush Mounts: An attractive flush mount fixture IS possible! I used the classic star in my entryway (but am way in love with the NEW multi-point star!) I also used the small Paris Flea Market on my closet ceiling recently and it’s so girly and charming.

Chandeliers & Pendants: There are so many good ones here- from kitchen pendants to dramatic dining room chandeliers. We LOVE the classic, antique looking Paris Flea Market Chandelier at EGD, and of course the Hicks pendants (the two tone I used in my kitchen, and have since moved them into the mudroom on a short chain as a ceiling fixture!)

Sconces:  Sconces are really important in bath lighting, but also in other areas of the house. There are SO many to love- from the classic Bryant I have in my bathroom to the Boston Library Sconce with it’s fab arched arm (and name!) Modern or traditional, there are a ton of options.
