If there is such thing as being in love with a chair, I think I’ve found the one. The Eames Molded Plastic Chair with wooden dowel legs has caught my attention lately. Although, I’m not sure lately is the right word to use – this chair was designed in 1950!!! Yes 65 years ago!!!!! And it still look fabulous. Its sturdy, comfortable, easy on the eyes, pairs beautifully in a variety of decors and tables, and easy to clean! I love the one with the wood base as it looks a little warmer and sturdier than the wire base counterpart. You can buy the real-deal Eames Molded Plastic Chair here! And if you are looking for a less expensive version, there is an awesome one here!

The New Bohemians by Justina Blakeney

The New Bohemians book by Justina Blakeney is out today! Have you ordered your copy yet? I’m SO SO SO excited to get mine in the mail!!! Justina is one of my favorite bloggers – I love her eclectic sense style, use of fun vibrant color & textiles, and of course, the PLANTS! She just has this way with using and showcasing interesting plants around the homes she styles. I will be the first to admit that I am TERRIBLE at keeping my houseplants alive. But she always has me wishing to add a little cactus here, or a palm in that corner…

Anyway, the book looks awesome and interesting and totally different from some of the other books I’ve featured on the blog before. I’m pretty sure the book is full of gorgeous textiles and pillows we can all drool over. Also, if you haven’t already checked out Justina’s blog, you should – the jungalow.

You can buy Justina’s book here and here!

Here are some snaps from her instagram account

Hillsborough Family Home designed by Chloe Warner

Hi guys – I’m so happy to be BACK!!!!

I totally didn’t mean to take almost three weeks off from blogging. We went away for a week to Switzerland which was both awesome and totally insane. Toddler + Jetlag = CRAZY. And then when we got back, it was spring break so there was no preschool, & Jack and I got to spend a lot of time at the park (*and see previous note about jetlag). And then this week, well, let me tell you that it was a total kick-in-the butt with illness that found us in the ER on Monday. Everyone is on the mend (thankfully) and I couldn’t be happier to be back to designing / blogging/ regular life.

So let’s start off again with this fabulous home I recently spotted on Domaine. It was designed by Chloe Warner of Redmond Aldrich & is actually in the neighboring town from me in Hillsborough! I love the color palette with pops of bright happy & feminine colors (look at the chandelier in the dining room!). The design is beautiful and approachable and it feels like a well decorated home that you can actually live in & enjoy. Nothing looks untouchable & I love that. Which is your favorite room?

Off to Switzerland…

By the time you read this, we’ll be on our way to Switzerland for a little holiday & to visit Philippe’s family. Wish us luck, traveling with a 16 month old toddler… the good thing is we can still get by with Jack as a ‘lap’ child until he turns two, or is that the bad news?!?!

I won’t be posting here while I’m gone, but I’ll be on instagram (duh!) And if you like, here are some things from the archives that might interest you in the meantime…

Our last trip to Switzerland.

Its always fun to learn more about artists… see some of my favorites in the The Otomi Home Artist Series.

The Best List series features a lot of modern classics for the home.

I don’t know why, but I love dreaming about pretty home offices like this one!

Nothing like a hanging basket chair to have you yearning for summer.

And my first ever post! Time is flying!!!

Have a lovely week everyone.
