Last month’s House Beautiful had an interior featuring the iconic banana leaf wallpaper from the Beverly Hills Hotel, and thus, I wanted all things leaf printed.
Favorite of this bunch (ha!): the plates! Love the entire Lulu DK entertaining line, really.
I don’t know a poetic way to say my husband was laid off yesterday. Absurdly, this is not the worst thing to happen to us this year.
We could really use a win.
If you live in a city, chances are your outdoor space is limited, if not nonexistent–mine is, unless you count a fire escape! Even so, you can still create a cozy and stylish sitting area.
I like both of these chair styles because they’re not strictly outdoors chairs. You can bring them inside for extra party seating and not be embarrassed about lawn chairs. Retrouve chairs are absolutely on my dream list of furniture, pricey but gorgeous.
A few plants are a must to make the area feel “outdoorsy” even if your view is an alley. I like these mini but cute pots.
Finally, a little candlelight outside can make a concrete slab feel dreamy. Then complete the area with a versatile stool for extra seating or drinks!
Here’s an art deal I suggest you not delay: a small collection of watercolor prints from Virginia Johnson are on sale for only two more weeks, and they’re lovely!
The prints start at $100 for an unframed 8″x10″ and range in colorful subjects. Absolutely perfect additions to a gallery wall!
Gingham is all grown up, people! Of course I love a gingham shirt (and why yes, a check tablecloth), but no need to end the pattern there.
By the way, if any of you seriously dig the print, I’m dying to do silk gingham drapes. Please do it for me. Billowing ones.
