Dreamy Blue Bath: Get the Look

I’ve been spotting a lot of blue patterned tile bathrooms lately- a little bit Delft inspired and a lot a bit awesome. They feel both modern and traditional at the same time- and while you may want something more simple for a master bath, its an AWESOME look for a guest bathroom or powder room! I adore this one designed by Mark Sikes and wanted to try to recreate it for the real world.

I found some great options like tile from Home Depot (whaaaa?) and accent on super sale (like the mirror and garden stool).  I’m loving this! You?

Elements by Erin Gates Fall Pillows (Round 1)

The first selection of my fall pillows is live on Wayfair and I’m excited to share this collection with you (as well as some sneak peeks of the second shipment of fall pillows that should be available to purchase in 2 weeks!)  Some of these images show items from the next collection not available yet,  but I think it helps to share some now so you can plan pairings ahead of time :)  I used some really lovely rich colors like fig, morel (a brown with grey in it so it feels modern), a green-grey and peacock blues, as well as my favorite light grey and tan neutrals. All of them with a removable down fill insert and under $50 each! :) To see all the colors available in each pattern click the colo dropbox menu on the right (Wayfair has changed their site a bit).

Fashion Friday: Fall’s Best Bags

I know that most people are sad it’s already August, but I for one am not. BRING ON FALL. Like, I cannot wait to be buying sweaters and boots and yummy layers for fall temperatures. Humidity and I do not get along.

While it may feel too warm to go as far as buy sweaters and coats, bags are another thing.  A good fall bag (or two) will get you far (and is something you can carry now for the most part, because instant gratification is where it’s at, right?)

Trends for fall bags seem to be in line with the thinking that simplicity is key, which I love.  Specific things to look for:

  • suede and leather mixed textures
  • rich jewel tones like olive (the new neutral), navy and oxblood
  • Structured totes and lady-like silhouettes
  • Or the extreme opposite of slouchy, unstructured hobos
  • TASSELS EVERYWHERE (cue me doing spirit fingers!)
  • Unbranded bags- no giant logos or logos-as-pattern

Here is a round up of some bags that fit the bill! Click the images for links!

New Art Source: Poster Club

I was away working this weekend so this morning’s post is going to be short and sweet. Came across a great new source for affordable art prints in the UK called The Poster Club and rounded up some favorites into a virtual gallery wall to share with you guys. I love the mix of line drawings, graphic prints, abstract paintings and photography.
