how to find art on etsy

loving this quilt

also, some things on my mind:

  • i always have a love/ hate/ commitment issue with color but i really love this vintage collection that one kings lane just put out. such a fan of layering and pattern play!
  • one of my dreams is to own a store, so i’m always mesmerized by articles and pinterest about the interior design of stores. loving the new pretty plum sugar space featured on glitter guide. (also, follow my “storefronts” board on pinterest!)

what you should be buying at: furbish studio

another new series (!)- what you should be buying at _____. i’ll be spotlighting stores that i love and the amazing stuff they have.

first up- furbish studio. jamie meares, of the oh-so popular blog, i suwanee, is such an inspiration and has an amazing eye. such a great mix of home accessories, gifts, even bags and jewelry. i have yet to visit the raleigh brick and mortar but this is a site i check weekly to see what new goodies they have and trust me, they have so much good stuff.

check out some of my favorites.

Laguna_I_Secondary

this cult classic is back in stock and is so versatile- living room/ playroom storage, a bright pop of color in the bathroom or even a planter.

Pink_Otomi_Runner_2_-_3

i’m such a sucker for an otomi textile. another versatile purchase- table runner, a cool wall hanging (how cute would it look in a little girl’s room??), even at the end of the bed.

Ibiza_Lumbar_Blue_-090-fin

love this simple pillow.

 

Landscape_Ginger_Jar_medium

such a pretty southern staple.

 

Screen_Shot_2015-11-23_at_4.43.44_PM

about to scoop this up for the front porch (ps-i finally painted the headboard ceiling haint blue and let me tell ya, it looks GOOD 🙂 also, i wanted to be as historically correct as i could so i referred to the “historic colors of charleston” color chart by sherwin williams and picked piazza blue.)

Pool_Bar_Print_1

i’m such a fan of local artists and this one just so happens to be from my ol’ stompin’ grounds. love this one from dorothy shain.

SO good, right?

engagement gift basket

with so many big life events constantly being announced by friends (basically) daily, i thought it might be helpful to put together a few gift ideas (kind of like how i did here). i love the idea of a basket that incorporates a wide variety of things at different price points- perfect for the Mr and the Mrs! Plus, who doesn’t like multiple presents?!

here are a few things to get started!

parachute essential quilt (this is on pre-order. i love it and haven’t seen anything similar but since i lack any sort of patience- i want it NOW! any suggestions for something similar?)

still looking for some layering details- shams (in a fun print! maybe these?) and a throw for the end of the bed.

spring cleaning inspiration

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset
a warm cloudy spring morning in virginia.

i’m SO excited its finally spring- farmer’s markets, gardening, flowers, cleaning, light colors, open windows- it really is the best. i’ve already gotten started on a few projects that i’m excited to share soon (master bedroom purchases, landscape projects, window boxes, exterior painting, rearranging and organizing!)

here are a few links to get going!

bathroom: before & after + accessories

bath

 

our mini bathroom update (paint and tile) was finished right before thanksgiving and i never shared- sorry about that! although they were just small changes, it really did a lot for the space. ultimately, we’d like to gut/ rearrange it but for now, its good to go! now i’m just looking for small accessories (ie new knobs, some hooks, hand towels) to finish off the look.
