party provisions from Food52

Whether you’re setting your table for Easter, brunch, or just cocktails with the girls, serve it up in style with these adorable and handsome party provisions from Food52. With the goal of “better kitchens for everyone” in mind, Food52 has carefully curated an assortment of serveware, barware, and even party decorations that make for great gifts (or a treat for yourself…). I love the amount of detail on these pieces: from a gentle swoosh of glaze on a platter, to pony-topped drink stirrers, these pieces are like modern heirlooms.

I love the idea of setting a table and using such a wide range of materials, like copper, clear and colored glass, brass, even dipped enamel. Plus, it’s always nice to throw in a punch of color to perk up a neutral and sophisticated table.

cotton & flax

Happy Friday! This week was quite a long one, but we made it and the weekend is totally in sight. I’m planning to continue unpacking (yes, still, after two months), so I’ve been digging deep for inspiration for my apartment. Pretty timely, considering that two of my posts for Anthology this week were about home decor items.

I kicked off the week with a feature on a home textiles company called Cotton & Flax. I love the casual vibe of these pillows, especially that gorgeous shade of yellow. Head over to Anthology to see more.

Happy Friday, everyone! As we head into the weekend, I wanted to share some light reading from across the internet. Let’s start with my most recent posts for Clementine Daily: The Best Budget Shades for Spring and Surprising Ways to Sneak in Exercise.  I’m always partial to big, statement sunglasses (remember this shoot with Toms?), so these cat eyes are a Must for me this spring.

One of my favorite ways to sneak in exercise is what I call ‘dance-cleaning.’ Head over to Clementine Daily to see more ways to feel the burn.

I’ve been busy over on Anthology, too. Two of my favorite posts are the perfect inspiration for a spring-time refresh in your home: Faceted Planters by Raw Originals and Birdhouses by Pygmalion Studio.

While we’re on the topic of home decor… check out my posts over on Rugs Direct, too: Let’s Get Nautical and Lovely Lace. It’s pretty common knowledge that I am obsessed with all things nautical, so these rugs are totally on my wishlist.

etsy wish list: enamelware

So help me, all I want in my kitchen these days is enamelware… and Etsy is just the place to find it. My wish list of vintage finds just keeps growing and growing. There’s just something about the durability, the glossy smooth surface, the bright pops of primary color that grabs me. I want it all. Plus, think of how functional these pieces will be for my next camping trip!

etsy wish list: enamelwareI am really loving these enamel paella pans. The colors are so cheerful and I love the fact that they nest! Plus, the outside is black, making them a bit more sophisticated.

ceramics from vitrified studio

My new kitchen holds such promise, so much opportunity. I have glossy black granite countertops that practically beg for beautiful canisters and containers. This is why I am currently lusting after these gorgeous pieces from Vitrified Studio. Each porcelain piece is made by hand in Portland by Shelley Martin. I just love the casual, yet elegant shapes of each piece, as well as Shelley’s range of glazes. My favorite though, by far, is the white with matte black glaze. The tiniest touch of cork really just makes the look, don’t you think? This pairing of tall, thin canisters might just have to come reside in my new kitchen.

PS - follow Vitrified Studio on Instagram — her dogs are seriously cute.

get growin' // my garden pot wish list

My last apartment had a plethora of plant life (check it out here), but sadly I had to re-home all of my plants when I moved. Now that I’m almost finished unpacking, I’m thinking of all the finishing touches to make my apartment a home, specifically replenishing my plant collection. The best part? This new apartment has even more room for greenery, which has me shopping for new garden pots to add to my collection. I want to incorporate even more mixed materials this time with hits of wire, terra cotta, and copper. It’s always so much fun to have an assortment of garden pots, so this time I’m really taking the time to curate my mix of materials.

Here are some of my top picks: tapered wire pot from Terrain / copper patina planter from Leif / cacti planters from Baba Souk / tall plant pot from Saturday

ps – In the mood for more spring? Head over to Anthology and check out my post about a new spring-time trend: Fruit for the Home.

sheepskin covered rugs

Wow, can we just discuss how crazy the past week has been? As in, I moved into my apartment, received all of my stuff from the movers, started unpacking, stopped unpacking, started making an Ikea shopping list… everything. Oh, and I still do not have wifi in my apartment which makes blogging soooort of tricky. I guess it forces me to really tackle all those boxes, huh?

Anyways, I’ve been brainstorming ways to make this apartment feel totally different from my last place in Philly. I absolutely loved that apartment, but I want this one to have a totally different vibe, but without replacing everything I own. I’ve already started pulling together an inspiration board on Pinterest called My Ideal Home. Here are a few of my favorite ideas that I totally plan to incorporate into my new space.

billowy bedding
I think this space needs more of a boho, relaxed vibe. I’m lucky enough to have a sleeping nook, so I’m thinking of converting it into a little tented area. I want it to be very intimate, very nook-ish, and totally ensconced in breezy, sheer, billowy fabrics like this bed.

marble topped table
My kitchen has the perfect space for a tiny table for two. Of course I am lusting after a vintage marble-topped beauty like this.

loads of plants
This time I want even more plants, including trees, just like this grouping.
