tory burch home

I’m not exactly the target Tory Burch customer, but there’s something I love about adding touches of her casual preppy style to my boho, unkempt style — especially for my home. This is why I love the new collection of home decor from Tory. Focused on the tabletop, these pieces really capture the effortless ease of the brand in the best way possible. Definitely not fine china, these are pieces that are perfect for every day use, but with a fun, historical twist. For example, the spongeware plates and bowls are inspired by the 19th-century English ceramics that both she and her mother, Reva, collect. Plus, the entire collection is mix-n-match friendly, so you know you can put your own twist on it. My favorite piece of the home collection? These lucky charm cocktail napkins, of course.

Rebecca Atwood Fall Collection

Always amazing, Rebecca Atwood has once again blown me away with her new collection, titled The Howland Collection. This new offering features naturally dyed shibori styles, painted watercolor designs, marbleized swirls, metallic linens, and screen printed pillows at new lower price points. Pretty awesome, right?

Rebecca Atwood Fall CollectionIn Rebeca’s words, this is the inspiration for the collection:

The new fall collection begins on a crisp autumn morning. It’s a morning where milk turns a warm cup of coffee into that perfect latte color. It’s a morning where light dances across the bedroom walls, creating ever changing patterns. As morning gives way to afternoon, smoky grey shadows cast long grids along the sidewalk, and weathered steel reflects the soft luster of the late-morning sun. A day in the studio is spent creating potato prints, marbling paper and working through ideas in a sketchbook. By the end of the day, the light has shifted, casting everything in deep blue-green hues.

it's ok

September is a good month for me. After a lot of travel (Venice Beach, Colorado, and Chicago), it’s good to have a month off! It’s really just the perfect opportunity to continue/finish nesting in my new apartment. Just last week I unpacked my last box, kind of a big deal for me. So I wanted to share a few peeks into my home. I’m one of those people who believes that a person’s home is a clear representation of who they are as a person. For me, mine is full of special little bits and bobs I’ve picked up along my journey. Whether it’s my vintage souvenir plate collection or naked lady painting, I surround myself only with things that excite me. Here are a few vignettes.

vintage paintingUgh, this painting. There’s just something about her that makes the apartment feel complete. I bought her at the Alameda Flea market during one of those moments where I just knew I had to have her.

Fabric napkins are a must have in my house. I hate the waste of throwing away a paper napkin, plus I love having that special pop of pattern on a luxe fabric. The new Bandana Napkins from Studiopatró are a recent favorite of mine. Measuring 22×22″, these napkins are made of sturdy 100% linen. Plus, because they are linen, they will get softer with each use! The pattern, as the name suggests, was inspired by traditional bandana designs, as well as the punched openings of a kitchen colander. Each is handprinted one-by-one, using ecologically friendly water-based inks. These napkins are truly the perfect sophisticated and clean textile to add to any tablesetting — and this week I’m partnering with Studiopatró for a giveaway!

that fall feeling

This is my first fall in California and I’ve heard we don’t exactly get one… that it’s actually the warmest time in San Francisco. Kind of weird, right? After spending the past 2 years back on the east coast, I can’t help but long for apple picking and sweater weather and changing leaves. It’s my favorite time of year so I’m feelin’ a bit ho-hum about missing out on it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still pleased as punch to be here and excited to see just how gorgeous it can get… but I still long for those golden fall days.

Confession: if I could, I’d turn my entire apartment into a pillow fort. Lately, I’ve found myself obsessed with the eclectic handmade pillows from bunglo. Just how great is their mission statement: “At bunglo we believe our colorful, energetic patterns put good vibrations out into the world; transforming residential and commercial spaces into meditative environments with light, soul-lifting fabrics.” Designer Shay Spaniola hand makes each pillow and each is printed in the USA on a linen + cotton blend fabric.

Rebecca Atwood fabric by the yard

Oh, Rebecca Atwood… such a talent. Recently, this textile design powerhouse launched fabric by the yard. Available on her own site and Studio Four NYC, these textiles perfect for upholstery, curtains, even creating your own tablelinens. The line is hand-printed in Rhode Island at a family-owned and operated mill that’s been open since 1937 — how cool is that? I also love how the prints seem to mix and match so well together. With all these amazing prints, it’s hard to pick a favorite.
