If Josh and I lived in Palm Beach I would say pretty much everything for our home would be from Circa Who. ¬†They have the the coolest vintage pieces that you would want to design entire rooms around. ¬†I was just cruising through their website and was wanting EVERYTHING.
This is furniture design at its best. I wish this were mine.
Not a fan of the fabric, but if these were reupholstered, they’d be pretty sick.
A pagoda desk.
Milo Baughman styles swivel chairs.
A Ficks Reed dresser and nightstand. I love the layout of the drawers.
An awesome pair of Ficks Reed Fan chairs. We have a similar chair that i refurbished. Check out the post HERE
You can check out all of these pieces and so much more HERE. ¬†
I’ve been a HUGE 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent fan for years. ¬†Her clothes are special and modern, but still have a bit of that California-boho thing going on. ¬†I dig the look.
So…. Obviously…. Their Los Angeles corporate showroom is just as awesome. ¬† ¬†Last Friday I was crusing through the Cooper Design Space doing a little sample sale shopping when I totally did a creep-peek and snapped a few pics are their amazing space.
I could sit on that couch for hours and talk-shop! From the interesting horn legged benches, to the gorgeous sofa and paired coffee tables. ¬†The space is so inspiring, creative, and fresh.
We entertain a lot at casa de H & J. ¬† I would say we have people over at least once a week…. and this can range from 2 people to 15. and I love it. ¬†The more the merrier!
Because of that, I buy a of serving pieces. ¬†I don’t like the look of mis-matched serveware, so I make sure that every piece I add to my mix has gold and white in it. ¬†As much as I love mixing up my furniture and playing with time periods, ¬†I dig a little “matchy-matchy.”
I recently came across the new Firenze Medici collection from Juliska¬†(inspired by vintage Florentine papers) and it is absoluely gorgeous. ¬† These would layer great with my basic white Crate & Barrel dishes, and would do well with all my gold accent pieces. ¬†Boom.
Anthropologie’s kid sister Urban Outfitters has some great home goods product. ¬†To be honest…. I’ve always been a fan of Urban Outfitters. ¬†They always have good junk and it never really feels crappy even though its mass produced. ¬† They are always on top of the latest trends and its hard to walk out of their empty handed. ¬†Even if its a funny book, a candle, or some cute underwear or a dress…. there’s always something in there that works.
I was cruising through their furniture to see what their buyers have whipped up, and there are some great pieces I’m considering for our guest room and the balcony.
I am semi obsessed with this jute elephant side table. ¬†I mean… does he get any more adorable? ¬†I just love him and want him, and may actually just need.
The Heritage Book Shelf is awesome – and is on wheels. ¬†This definitely would be great for our guest room/home office. ¬†We have a ton of books still sitting in a card board box that need to see the light of day.
The criss-cross coffee table , modern and sleek but I think this would look awesome to break up a vintage boho inspired home. ¬†Maybe to even spray paint the base gold, or a fun color like turquoise or emerald green?
Top on my list was to paint the ugly beige walls, and my color of choice – Gray! ¬†And I love the way it turned out.
So above is the foyer. ¬†Such a good color, right? ¬†I was a little nervous because the foyer doesn’t get a ton of light and I was afraid it was going to darken the space even more, but it just made everything have warmth.
The mirror above the mantle in the living room use to be yellow (here)¬†and was in my dining room, but yellow was not working for the new digs, so gold it is now. ¬†Sort of obsessed with it.
I know…. I know… I totally fell off the bandwagon. ¬†Which really is such a shame because I love this blog so much! ¬†But…. Hopefully we can get back on track. ¬†Lots has gone on since Josh and I have moved into our new place. ¬†It really feels like our home and I’m loving it. ¬†The entire place has been repainted a fabulous gray color, and I’m slowly but surely tackling projects.
So, here is part of my first project. ¬†I bought a crazy bamboo high-back chair when we were in Palm Springs several months ago. ¬†Josh was going to kill me when I told him I had just purchased it. ¬†He obviously didn’t see the potential! And when I told him I spent $35 on it (I thought this was an utter steal) – he was convinced I just wasted my cash.
So….. a serious cleaning, a sanding, a few spray paint coats later, and a fun new Subrella upholstery job…. We were in business.
And here she is…. all complete! I am in the process of buying an outdoor rug for the space and potted plants – but here is the completed chair.
¬†Here is our bedroom. ¬†Not much has changed since this picture was taken in November, but that we have dark gray sheets and bedskirt and a white duvet. ¬†But its boring. ¬†I love the rug, our dresser, and our lamps. But the bedding is such a snore. ¬†Here’s some inspiration that’s helping me make some decions.
¬†I love the monogrammed bedding bedding! ¬†BUT for some reason, Josh doesn’t lay nicely on the bed. ¬†It’s like he leaves his mark everytime he sits. ¬†He’s like a puppy. (but in a handsome way).
¬†This bedding bewlow with the hints of lilac and the stripe is UH-mazing.
Massucco Warner Miller designed the bedroom below. ¬†My duvet never looks that full. ¬†And I splurged on a good one for us! ¬†What is the trick here?
The colors below are just beautful and I love how clean and well kept this look.
For the bedroom below, I like the layout of the pillows. ¬†I think I need king size pillows.
And this last one – love the bedding, the mix of tonal colors and the softness.
Please do share what is on your bed and how you keep it from looking cluttery and messy!
I made chocolate toffee bark for a few people in the office last night (and wrapped them up this morning) as well as made a few extra for Josh to take to work. ¬†They are SO freakin’ good and SO easy to make ¬†(meaning – my mom could probably handle this one). ¬† Get the recipe here from Deep South Dish. ¬†¬†¬† (It’s literally 5 ingredients). ¬† ¬†They are a bit gooey, so I wrapped them in wax paper in layers, pulled them in plastic bags from the Paper Source, and then tied with vintage ribbon.
Wishing you a super sweet and wonderful Valentine’s Day!
After work today I popped into 45 Three on Fairfax (south of Wilshire Blvd. for those LA peeps) and of course they had great stuff, but nothing that’s on my list that I’m currently needing for my new digs.
If you live in the area you should totally stop in there. ¬†They are having a sale and there are some really great pieces.
I’m convinced that World Market could be one of the greatest stores ever. ¬†You’ve got food, wine, home decor accessories, furniture, serveware, ¬†and wrapping paper all uner one roof!? ¬†I mean… I don’t know about you, but this place is a total score.
Here are some of my favorite pieces on their website that I am totally into.
