Chin Up, Buttercup!

hdb_logo_new_1447793453__35199.png

I was in Los Angeles last month for a little adventure driving up the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco (which I highly recommend, BTW). I did a bit of shopping as well, and thought I’d feature one of my favorite home decor shops in the area. H.D. Buttercup seems to be expanding widely (there are now 4 in LA), and it’s no wonder – they stock an eclectic assortment of home decor and furnishings that are pretty unique. Here’s a little sampling… (As always, click to shop!)

Dyed and Gone to Hudson

Fig_Bella_Home_Collection_BannerI had the pleasure of visiting Hudson, NY last week where I discovered so many wonderful little shops! One that I found irresistible (and that did a bit of damage to my pocketbook) was Fig & Bella. They create scarves, wraps, pillows, textiles that are each individually handmade using a modern interpretation of traditional dyeing techniques.

Every Fig & Bella wool, silk, viscose, & tie dye cashmere scarf is individually dyed by hand in the Hudson Valley. All of our pillows are also dyed in our studio, and our candles are hand poured in the USA. Our cashmere is carefully sourced from master artisans and dyers in Nepal, with whom we work closely to produce only the finest quality scarves.

Pillows Start at $60; scarves at $89 (As always, click to shop!)

 

 

2016 Artisan Home Tour – part 1

I love stomping around the city, peering into homes far out of my reach, and imagining possibilities. The Artisan Home tour provides the chance to see the work of local builders and designers, on projects most of us would only dream of! Yes, one can get a bit of a complex touring these multi-million $ homes (um, yes, I do), but at the same time, it’s totally inspiring because there are ideas that you totally can apply to your own home. Here’s a few pics from the tour last weekend:
