Well hello stranger... I'm working from home this week. I decided a mental health break from the office was in order. I'm still technically working FOR SURE (hello clients that read my blog!), but I needed to buzz around town so much this week, that I decided to work from home in between errands and appointments. I must say, it's been nice to wear sweats (cute sweats mind you!) and fuzzy socks, a pot of tea at the ready.
With summer drawing to a close, but fall not quite here, the 'theme' of this list of things I'm digging is reflective of this time in between.
Here you go...
First, they had me at the name. Then they had me again at the logo. Ever since I discovered this Australian based company this summer I've been mildly OBSESSED. I have thought about these headboards many times and when/where/for whom I can use them. I find them so incredibly nostalgic of summer homes of my youth.
Since I haven't found a place for them yet, I've decided that I must use them myself...someday...whenever I get a Stinson beach house. Two of these will go in the 'girls' bedroom.
Boho chic Peacock Chair. Love it.
If you're not already familiar, Janus et Cie is a high-end outdoor furniture company. Their lines are on the contemporary side, but they also carry some classic pieces that will appeal to the traditionalists. I recently discovered they have an online outlet that offers 70% off!
I love the settee below. It was originally $3,757 and is now only $1,350!
I would love to add a shed or out building to our property. Whether it's a potting shed, artist studio, office or just a destination, there is just something about being able to escape to your own little cocoon. This company makes shed kits in a few sizes and offers packages for the intended purpose - guest house, gardening, etc.
Finding just the right lamp can be difficult. It's an accessory that is both practical and decorative and often is one of the last pieces to be added to a room. Recently I needed a pop of purple in a gray family room. I was thrilled to find this new line of custom lamps that only take two weeks to make! They are on the pricey side ($900-$1,000/ea), so I didn't use them for this client (otherwise I would show you!), but I bookmarked it for future reference. (I realize this is one doesn't fit in with the 'theme', but the jewel tones they offer made me think fall. Plus, I wanted to share it anyway and it's my blog:-).
Mottega offers a choice of glass or ceramic bodies in many shapes, several shade options, and choice of material for base and finial.
It's been a little cooler here in California lately, so I'm finding myself getting in the fall spirit and daydreaming about being here...
Wearing something like this...
Then going back to places like this...
Happy Fall and a wonderful weekend to you!
