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?

It all started with these shoes. These oh-so-perfect shoes. For a few minutes I convinced myself they would be so chic as wedding shoes… and then I came back to reality and remembered we’re getting married on Martha’s Vineyard. Probably not in line with the whole vision, but I totally intend to scrimp and save for them because they’re perfect.

The shoes led me down a black and white rabbit hole. I discovered this bag and this dress which are sisters from a different mister. Of course I’m never without a few wish list items for my home, which is actually going through a black and white phase at the moment. I love this Rorschach inspired art and the mid-century modern shape of this lamp.

Some of my best discoveries were in the accessories department. Is it just me, or is this bargain of a clutch kind of reminiscent of the Hermes Jige? You know my tortoise obsession runs deep, so I was very excited to find this Michael Kors bangle–gold and tortoise is always a perfect pairing. Plus, as I’m sure you already know if your reader has been as bombarded with posts as mine has, but Shopbop is having a big sale so now’s a good time to buy it.

How about a perfectly pink edition of In Pursuit just in time for Valentine’s Day?  A sconce might seem like an odd thing to include in a Valentine’s Day round up, but this one really has stolen my heart. Definitely using a pair in a project someday. Clare Vivier’s Love Shop is not to be missed. You’ll be wearing this new shade well past February 14 and into spring. Pairs perfectly with this.

If you’re hoping for some jewels this year, this sweet little pair won’t break the bank, but this is luxe list worthy (and has been on my own wish list for 3 or 4 years now!) Give these out as favors if you’re hosting a Valentine’s Day fete–they’ll last longer than the real thing. Sometimes all you need is a little bit of neon, and because everything sounds better in French, my Valentine of choice.

As if being one of the most well-known interior designers wasn’t enough, Kelly Wearstler is also killing it with her jewelry line. Is it too early to make my first Spring purchase? Because these are at the very top of my list. While I’m at it, I’ll take this too.  This mug is almost pretty enough to make me a coffee drinker (but who am I kidding, I’d probably just fill it with diet coke!)

I have two of Christian Chaize’s Praia Piquinia photographs in my entryway, so I was very excited to see this book of his work. Allan Winkler’s blue spotted bowls would mix perfectly with my Blue Willow, and this necklace would be perfect for everyday wear.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I couldn’t resist a little pink and red in the form of this cosmetics case and this pillow. Leave it to Smythson to make the perfect wedding planning companions. I especially love the ‘honeymoon recollections’ notebook. Wouldn’t it be fun to re-read on some long off anniversary?
