Shopping LA – part 1

Thought I’d share a few pics from my visit to Los Angeles earlier this summer. Loving the Cali Casual vibe and great mix of vintage + artisan + modern pieces!


Chin Up, Buttercup!


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!)

Upstate NYC – part 1

Earlier this fall, I spent a few days exploring a number of lovely towns throughout upstate NY. What I discovered was amazing vintage and home shopping, and an abundance of unique character! Totally charming & inspiring.


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!)



Atlanta Gift Show, July 2016 – part 1

The Atlanta Gift Fair is one of my favorites. Mostly because everything you can imagine is represented there! The diversity of styles is incredible and allows for unedited inspiration.





Put Yer Feet Up!

I’m on a mission to find a new coffee table for my living room. I want something cool looking, but not weird; practical, but not boring – not too big, not too small. It’s a tough decision, as there are sooooo many good options out there! Here’s a sampling of contenders… (As always, click to shop)
