Magnolia Blossoms Wallpaper

Have you guys visited Anthro’s home section lately? My mom sent me a hot tip to check it out this weekend, and it’s a veritable treasure trove of design goodness. Their wallpaper collection is especially on point so I thought I’d round up my favorites above.

Just when I thought I was over suzani, Jovana pulled me right back in. There are a ton of coordinating pieces, too. I’m thinking the shower curtain might mitigate the very beige situation in our guest bath until we’re ready to renovate.

Jungle Vines is begging to be used in a powder bath with basketweave tile and Magnolia Blossom is making this Southern transplant’s heart skip a beat. SO pretty.

Happy papering!

Allow me to interrupt your mid-week routine so we can collectively play out our British country mouse daydreams (I can’t possibly be alone on that one, right?) I discovered Wardington Manor via House & Garden and am completely enchanted by the Jacobean home and organic flower farm in Oxfordshire.

Owned by Bridget Elworthy, the manor’s 30 acres serves as home base for the cut flower business, The Land Gardeners, which Elsworthy operates with her business partner Henrietta Courtauld. The manor itself is enough to put me over the edge, but add in Victorian walled gardens, and dinner plate sized dahlias and I just can’t even.

Once a week the duo loads a van with freshly cut English flowers and sends them off to London to be delivered to clients like Soane, purveyor of some of the chicest pieces of furniture, fabric, and wallcoverings that I very much aspire to own. Too charming for words.

Sigh, in this case the grass is literally greener.

FEELING QUIRK-Y

I’m en route to DC for client visits and some much needed time at the Design Center, but I stopped in Richmond last night to visit my sister and we grabbed dinner and drinks at The Quirk Hotel. The setting, meal, and drinks were completely delightful and deserving of their own post–I’m really hoping to book a weekend stay at some point this fall–but it reminded me I hadn’t shared the owners’ townhouse which was recently featured in House Beautiful. 

Designed by Richmond based interior designer, Suellen Gregory, the townhouse is equal parts feminine and modern and the exact opposite of what you might expect for a home built in 1892, but it just works. The high ceilings and stately moldings set off the clean lined mid-century pieces, while antiques upholstered in punchy hues lend a playful gravitas.

 If you visit The Quirk Hotel it’s easy to see the owners’ sensibilities similarly reflected. I found myself particularly obsessed with the pleated sconce shades throughout the space and while re-visiting these photos quickly honed in on a similar shade in the master bedroom.

I admire anyone who has the the courage to really go for it with their home and a pink lacquered sitting room certainly falls into that category. Suellen Gregory’s ability to pull it all together in such a refined and seamless way speaks to her immense talent.

Plus, I had our living room painted pale pink a few months ago so this is giving me some ammunition against my family who think I’m a little bit crazy. 😉

ORANGE CRUSH

I am without a doubt in the midst of an orange obsession and I have the Pinterest trail to prove it. If you happen to have the perfect orange paint color similar to that fabulous door please send my way. I just had a mirror lacquered for our entry and it was just slightly off from that almost electric Hermès color I was hoping for. #decoratorproblems

THIS & THAT

As I was stalking the Shopbop sale last night–which is ridiculously good right now, btwI came across this little number. A suzani skirt?! Gimme that.

All Things Mochi

The skirt reminded me of another skirt that had recently won my affection. Check out this genius detail as seen on (and shamelessly screenshot for future use) the immensely talented Katie Ridder’s Insta feed.

Does it get any better? Oh wait, it does. This whole situation lives on Nantucket. Truly winning.
