knot weave doormat

37141199_000_a

i really love terrain but we all know how pricey they can be. for example, this knot weave doormat (so pretty, right?) comes in at $98. i can think of a bunch of other ways i can spend $100. and since i like to have my cake and eat it too (aka get what i want but save $)-here are some good copycats!

crushing on: jersey ice cream company

webRiverhead-Dining-5

i stumbled on this amazing duo recently and am obsessed! i love how they came up with their name and i love every single thing they do. great story, great branding and amazing talent.

a little bit about them:

“Jersey Ice Cream Co was founded in the summer of 2010. Two kids in love found an old embossing stamp at a flea market, dreamed up a design empire, and then set to work trying to create it. Today Tara Mangini and Percy Bright spend their time moving house to house, job to job, leaving beautiful homes in their wake. They believe in craftsmanship, timelessness, and leaving things better than they found them. They do not make ice cream, but will happily have some if you’re offering.”

and here’s some of their work:

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.

weekend edition

i know i mentioned i was going to do a post about my bathroom reno this week but it has rained every. single. day. and there are a few more shots i’d like to get when its not raining. anyways, we have a lot of christmas things going on this weekend (a parade, charlottesville holiday market, the holiday market at grelen– has anyone been? i’m super excited!) and lots of decorating! hope y’all have a great weekend!

a few finds from this week-

christmas
1//2//3//4//5//6//7

as y’all know, (since i confessed here) i kiiiinda like love am obsessed with christmas.  i keep things pretty simple and traditional but i’m such a sucker for vintage christmas decor. without it getting too theme-y/ cliche/ your grandma’s house, i love to add touches here and there (think bottle brush trees, pastel-y glass ornaments, tinsel) and mix traditional and vintage. i scour ebay, etsy and estate sales for items on the cheap but if that’s not your thing, so many stores this year (especially, it seems) have put out some nostalgic goodies.

some items on my wish list:
-some sort of old christmas related sign (see above)
-my granny had a bunch of these and i loved them when i was little
-some vintage children’s picture books
-look for some pretty antique stockings to add to the mantel
– frame old piano book lyrics/ record covers/ postcards—> YES

design book review

the new bohemians: cool and collected homes- justina blakeney

ATHOME-BOHEMIAN-STYLE-1-TB d60ba40b7b90c69cfea03305ee904b48 f030794c96e82ec44455d814422e79c3

The+New+Bohemians+1

while this isn’t a design book i’d normally pick up, i’m always open to getting out of my comfort zone. and i’m glad i did- i really enjoyed this book.

justina blakeney did such a beautiful job putting this book together- the pictures are gorgeous and the spaces are so cool. i love the color, the collected aspect, textile mixing and the organic touches.

i feel that sometimes these sort of books can be a little word heavy (let’s be real- pictures > words, in this case) but she includes short and sweet little blurbs about each space. sprinkled throughout are a series of “adopt an idea”s- which helps translate each style into your own home- and “diy”s that are totally doable and inexpensive.

curated

i can just hear my sister laughing right now but i love the word ‘curated’.  to me it means the perfect balance of everything you love with great layering and looking gathered, all while feeling easy. there are so many great designers out there right now who just get it. i feel like sometimes things can look so forced and stiff but it takes the right amount of all of the ingredients listed above to make a room perfect.

here are some images i just can’t stop thinking about.
