DESIGN FINDS

There’s nothing I love more than a great design find from an unexpected source (and sharing it with you, of course!) My latest finds are pretty amazing if I do say so myself.

I came across the above collection at Urban Outfitters (!) and am downright obsessed. I’m considering that fabulous little settee for our breakfast nook. With a reupholstered seat cushion and a pair of pillows it will be the perfect placeholder until I have the banquette built when we renovate the kitchen next year.

If I didn’t already have a set of vintage Hans Wegner chairs I was planning to pair with it, a set of these would be perfect around an oblong tulip table, don’t you think?

I’m an East Coast girl through and through, but lately I’ve been drawn to all things California cool and surfer chic. It started with a healthy dose of wicker, rattan, and raffia–which, I should add, look fabulous anywhere, but work especially well with a boho beach vibe.

Case in point: this chair. You will not believe the price tag on that bad boy (in a good way!) and I can think of about a dozen rooms I’d like to use it in. Add a cushion in something by Peter Dunham or John Robshaw and pat yourself on the back for mastering the high-low mix.

 Beach babes on both coasts need a spot to rest their pretty heads and One Kings Lane has got us covered through their new collab with Parsons. I picked up a pair of these and can’t help but think the whole situation would be a lot better with a massive pair of sunnies.

Need Supply is one of those stores I forget to check regularly but when I do I find hidden gems like these. Perfect summer shoes! Pair with a little white dress, a turquoise necklace, and my favorite summer polish and you’ve got yourselves a uniform that will last you through Labor Day.

Serena & Lily Palm Beach Mirror | Furbish Blue Leaves Tablecloth | Hunters Alley Goblets | Baja Fabric | Gap Ballet Flats | Equipment Pajamas |

 This mirror is everything. I want to use it in every project for ever and ever (at least until I’m on to a new obsession next week). I stumbled upon this tablecloth and set of goblets independently of one another, but I think they’d make a perfect pair for a spring fête.

It’s a little bit granny chic, but I’m kind of loving this fabric. Consider it an alternative to the ubiquitous Fig Leaf (which I still have an undying love for). I can never have enough ballet flats and the price on this pair is just right.

On the other end of the spectrum, these pajamas are a major investment, but I can’t help but think they’d be adorable to get ready in on my wedding day. Don’t these delicate earrings laurel earrings have some serious every day potential? Love ’em!

I recently found a beautiful vintage watercolor for a client by artist, Lisbeth Reed. It was one of those situations where if the client wasn’t interested I definitely was going to snag it for myself (occupational hazard of decorating!) With vintage finds, the chances of coming upon something similar are usually slim to none, so imagine my surprise to come across an entire collection of original pieces by Lisbeth Reed on One Kings Lane! The colors inspired this collection of lovely things.

I am obsessed with Lizzie Fortunato’s jewelry. Her collections are always on point, but this necklace really does it for me. It’s an investment, but thankfully Shopbop is having one of their amazing Friends & Family sales so you can save 25% which is a big deal (if you needed help self-justifying!) In other sale news, this pair of bamboo nesting tables is on sale for under $250 which is a song. I kind of can’t believe it. Buy them, they’re perfect.

The little taste of spring we’ve had has had me dying for some al fresco dining. If we had outdoor space to entertain my table would look like this: block printed placemats, cork napkin rings, and wicker salad servers. Done. Oh, and I’d be wearing these espadrilles because I plan to wear them straight through spring and into summer!

If you saw on Instagram all the champagne that was being poured last night, you know why this post is coming a few hours later than normal (but oh it was worth it!) I’m looking forward to visiting the Thread pop-up at Union Market this weekend and did a little advance online stalking of Ann Mashburn to pick my favorites. I’m really hoping to see these espadrilles in person, but at the very least I’m coming home with a hot pink pen.

Virginia Johnson is expanding into home decor, and I couldn’t be more of a supporter! The color and detailing on this garden stool are just fantastic. Pairs perfectly with this clutch, don’t you think? I love love love classic menswear inspired pajamas and Sleepy Jones does them best if you’re looking to splurge (if not, these are my favorite and they’re on sale.)

One of my favorite sites for affordable art, 20 x 200, recently came back after a long hiatus and I think I’ll be celebrating their return with this print I’ve had my eye on for ages. Lastly, thanks to Tory Burch for pairing up two favorites: turquoise and malachite. The bracelet version might be even better!

Maybe if we think bright thoughts, Spring will come?
