CURRENTLY INSPIRED BY…

Just a few things that have caught my eye that I think you’ll find worthy of your attention…

McGrath II | Domaine Home

I’ve posted about the work of NYC based design firm, McGrath II, in the past, and was especially excited to see the apartment of co-founder, Lauren McGrath, on Domaine.

I really need to find a faux finisher because Lauren’s faux horn coffee table is everything! Anyone want to share their secret source with me? ūüėČ

McGrath II | Domaine Home

Projects by McGrath II always make me want to upgrade my furniture. Without fail, they the select perfect pieces –whether new or antique–that are sure to stand the test of time.

Habitually Chic | One Kings Lane

The One King’s Lane blog has quickly become a favorite. Did you catch the¬†tour of Heather Clawson of Habitually Chic’s home? I’ve always coveted the oil painting behind the orchid in this photo.

Zooey Deschanel

A renovation I’m working on has kitchens on my mind and¬†this one from Zooey Deschanel’s former home is particularly great (the whole house is worth a peek!)¬†I’ll always love an all white kitchen, but if you’re willing to go outside your comfort zone, color is so worth the risk!

SALES I’M SHOPPING
I’ve kept my shopping to a minimum all summer with plans on hitting the Labor Day sales. It will be Spring in South Africa during¬†our trip next month, so it’s the perfect time for me to scoop up some warmer weather pieces at a steal.

Packing for 2.5 weeks in a carry on will be another story… Any tips?!

I hit up the end of summer clearance at Nordstrom for these scarves which will be perfect for 16+ hours of flying and am planning to test these out for out hike of Table Mountain.

Shopbop’s sale is especially good right now. I grabbed this, this, and this¬†and have my eye on a new pair of sunnies¬†which seem safari appropriate.

Have a great holiday weekend!

BITS & PIECES

Antique Botanicals

Hello, September! I love the fresh start, blank slate feeling that comes with start of Fall. With three installations on the books, a major kitchen renovation underway, our trip to Africa just a month away (!!), and some exciting personal news I’ll be sharing soon, this month is gearing up to be a doozy, but we’re hitting the ground running. I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Today it’s off to the framer. The two ferns above are favorites from a set of a dozen 19th century botanical book plates I picked up for a client. They’ll be hung in three rows of four above a navy chaise. It’s going to be such a great little spot for the young family that will call it home and I can’t wait to see it come together.

Do you have any plans for the holiday weekend?

Mansur Gavriel Large Cammello Tote in Dolly
Camel Leather with Hot Pink Interior

Here’s one for the fashionistas! I impulse bought a notoriously hard to come by Mansur Gavriel bag last month as early birthday present (now sold out everywhere!),¬†buut I kind of wish I had gone with the bucket bag¬†and¬†it’s been sitting in the box it came in ever since.

That just shouldn’t happen with a bag this pretty–truly a crime–so I’m hoping someone will #treatyoself and show this beauty off since Mansur Gavriel doesn’t accept returns. Brand new, never worn, all tags/dust bag/etc. included.
