I'm working on several projects that have a gallery wall of art front and center. One of my go-tos when we need to augment an art grouping is to add an abstract piece by Kayce Hughes. Her work has such a fresh modern vibe that it lets a grouping breath, and it brings a really vibrant feel to an edit that can quickly become stuffy or too-cluttered. We just added about 15 new pieces online at Furbish, so cruise over for some eye-candy and inspo.
We're moving to a new home in Raleigh next month, and I'm doing my best to get a jump-start on decorating. In the main bathroom, there's only one wall that needs papering (great for the budget!), so I think I'm gonna splurge on this Josef Frank clover wallpaper that I've been oogling for years. About a year ago, a friend taught me how to find 4-leaf clovers, and I gotta say, I'm kinda a pro. On a normal dog walk, I can usual find at least 1, sometimes more! I'll take my luck where I can get it, so I figure added a bit more to the bathroom surely can't hurt!
We're about to finish up Season One, and while it was a slow start for us, we def are hooked into the drama. I am so freaking mad at Connie Britton! Girl, it's your 4th marriage, and he is playing you! I am glad to see she's getting a little crafty here at the end, but lord, woman - the smoothie a day ain't worth it! I love her so-extra older daughter, and the interior design biz with the fancy warehouse and designer delivery van crack me up. I honestly am just trying to get through to start season 2, because i lurvvve Amanda Peet and hear that the wardrobe in that one is right on.
I'm obsessed with this Farm Rio dress. I am not allowed to buy (girl's gotta buy wallpaper!), but it's sitting in my cart just in case there is some major change in my position in life (budget). There are so many great new things on their site, like this rainbow skirt, this very cute pink dress with puffy sleeves and this so-pretty maxi skirt.
PSA ASAP BTW! My very fave Belles Rives tray is on sale over at Furb. I swear this tray has a cult-following - when I go into a client's home where I've put just one, I am never surprised when I see they now have like 3 or 4. They are just so dang attractive, and practical. You can use on the coffee table, the kitchen counter, the nightstand, or in the bathroom. They corral clutter in a most-chic way, and now you can join the klerb for a fraction of the cost! Click over to see what styles we have left.
My new place has lots of exposed natural brick, original wood floors from the 1890s and huge factory windows, so I'm looking to the Soho House for inspo. No one does it better in my opinion when it comes to luxe, laidback style than founder Nick Jones. I was stoked to find there are two really great coffee table books on Amazon the SH folks have put out - and they have been so helpful for me as I research my plan for the new digs. You can buy both books here and here.
