Possibly it’s my trip to LA exerting its influence—my friends there all decorate with such an exhilarating mix of brights—that’s putting me in the mood for bold, cheery pops of sunshine-y yellow. If I had a home with a pool, this chair would be sitting beside it.
The vertical lines on this vase give it an ever-so-slightly retro feel.
Chevrons and sripes make for a fabulously graphic tea towel.
Super-luxe and extra-chic: an Acqua di Parma block candle.
This happy bowl was just made to fill with Clementines.
It’s always a good day when a new resource for Liberty of London prints reveals itself, and yesterday it happened twice. First, I was tooling around the Amara site and stumbled upon this excellently day-glo journal in their classic Ianthe pattern.
Then, over at Etsy, I found the shop for An Ant, and am now all but literally having to sit on my hands to keep from ordering one of the gorgeous, one-of-a-kind handmade quilts. This one in particular is calling my name (it’s the same print as my tattoo) at a particularly loud decibel level.
I love when geometric prints are both modern and at the same time nicely traditional, which is why this Pendelton throw appeals. (Also because it looks quite warm, which would appear to be this week’s theme.)
Now and likely forever, I will believe that the Christian Lacroix notebook is the best gift under $25, from a bang-for-your-buck perspective.
A gold leather pouf that just gets better with age.
Yet again another super-cool speaker.
These playing cards are most undeniably (and wonderfully) flashy.
One smooth little cocktail shaker.
A nifty wood ballpoint pen from fantastic (and hard-to-find-here) Japanese brand Delfonics.
These brass and copper bowls are enamel on the inside and so damn chic.
The palette of hues on this pitcher is so damn elegant and adaptable.
Likewise, the interplay of stainless steel and porcelain on this sugar bowl just totally works.
And while we’re on a theme: I find the mix of cork and earthenware on this salt and pepper shaker set to be quite winning as well.
One of my go-to gifts: a really dramatically long cheese board by Edward Wohl.
Espresso cups too cute for words.
An Ohio Stoneware crock: ideal for the corralling of random utensils.
