Maybe my fave meal in Raleigh? French fries and vichyssoise from Jolie. Just facts: I am a french fry connoisseur and these are perfect. Crispy, salty, herby and equipped to dip. The soup is so-very creamy and bright. I try and grab a seat at the bar at least once a month to treat my whole entire self.
My go-to for curtains in Colorado: Pendleton blankets. Whether I'm decorating for myself or a friend, I always come back to using these guys as a ready-to-go curtain. For a fraction of the price of making custom, you can hang a large blanket on rings, and voila - you've got a statement piece that made for mountain living, plus they're already blackout and insulating from cold weather b/c of the heft. Success!
Holiday is in full swing over at Furb (it surprises me every year when we make the collection live in August and the orders literally start pouring in). Two early fan-faves: our Filthy Animal and Wonderful Time of Year needlepoint. I love pulling these out at my house each year around turkey day, and just adding a little festive pop to a chair, or propped up on a bed or sofa pillow. We're currently using one on Vincent's changing table because he enjoys a headrest with his diaper change. Obvi, it's this one for that.
I know it's dumb because his foot is an uncontrollable weed that cannot be shoe-d for any real amount of time, but I'm a sucker for baby sneaks, and they look cute on his bookcase when he's not wearing them. These were added to cart and whelp, now they're on the bookcase.
Tad and I lamented that 7 hours of our lives were donated to this series on Netflix, and never to be reclaimed. I will try not to spoil it for you, but the ending, imo, was just such a super bummer. I know it's based on a true story, and I'm here for keeping to the facts, but in this case, I would've been just fine with some poetic license to spice up the story. Meh. We did enjoy the time, but it's like building a table that falls apart when you try to use it.
I'm such a fan of this funky wallpaper, and my brain is currently deciding if we can live with it in our main bedroom. Too much? Just enough? I should know by now something about that, right? Regardless if I get to live with it, I think it's super rad.
I'm working on a new restaurant in Wilmington and I've spec'd this tile for the bathroom floors. It's too much moneys, it's impractical, and I don't think it's going to happen, but nonetheless, I'm glad it came into my life, and you can bet it's on my Pinterest page for a future use if I can't swing it this time.
