Rowan and Wren

Isla Fluted Champagne Coupe, Set of Two

I *think* I just may have a favorite fall/winter home shop – are you familiar with Rowan and Wren? Maybe it’s the impeccable styling or just-so dark and moody lighting, but I can see at least half of their goods gracing my home. My aesthetic is in the middle of changing, combining minimalist modern preferences with more traditional pieces, and Rowan and Wren’s thoughtfully sourced collection of distinctive homewares sits smack in the middle of that Venn diagram. Here are my 13 favorite things, because I quite literally couldn’t narrow the list down any further!

Trending: Embroidery

Embroidered Military Shirt

Fall trends are emerging, and high atop the list is embroidery. Every article of clothing from shoes to shirts is fair game for brightly colored thread and pattern – and I dig it. I also dig that it would easy to DIY something you already own with an appliqué to mimic the look. (Always a bonus.)

Arco Table Light

 

The Arco Table Light is designed by Chicago-based sculptor Arielle Pollock. Inspired by gemstones, the top and bottom halves of Arco are made from a translucent PLA that creates a lovely diffusion when lit, emitting a glow that’s creates a calming ambience. The table light is made by Gantri, using an unique 3D printing process that combines advanced machine-engineering and meticulous hand-finishing, all done in the Bay Area.

Karen Ann Myers

 

It’s no secret that our relationship with our bedroom is an intimate one. Painter Karen Ann Myers is out to explore the psychological complexities behind that thought, while also inspired by the cult of beauty in mass media. Each overhead composition includes many of the same elements – a bed, a patterned rug, a wood floor, a dresser or chair, a bedside table, and oftentimes a phone – along with a woman in various stages of undress and emotion.

Irina & Silviu

 

Plenty of couples work together, but Irina and Silviu Szekely create across multiple disciplines – collage and photography. Today we’re highlighting the duo’s handmade collage work, which is made using scissors and glue just like the rest of us might grab at home. Each piece is full of completely disjointed bits and bobbles, and yet things end up ultimately harmonious. (I’m thinking we could all learn something from this, no?)

Sseko Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

 

If you recall, I’m acting as a Sole Sister for Sseko this entire year! As a Sseko Sole Sister I’ve been connected to one university-bound woman on Sseko’s team in Uganda to help her reach her educational goals –  and with every purchase made through our shared link sales will go towards her university scholarship.

Sseko recently launched their fall/winter 2017 collection and I wanted to share it with you. There are so many great staples to get you sartorially through the next few months, quite a few I’m eyeing to give as gifts this holiday season. First off, Sseko has launched an apparel line! Highly curated, the first season includes shawls, dusters, kimonos, and scarves.

 

 

 

They’ve also expanded their beautiful bags into the realm of travel. Four styles of varying size have all the space you need to make it through an overnight or a long weekend, and if you’re a light packer (or the weather is warm) you may even be able to fit a week’s worth.

 

 

 

Of course there are also some seasonal additions to Sseko’s already impressive collection of leather bags. Mulberry is shaping up to be this fall’s hot color and they made sure to include it – I’ve been carrying around the bucket bag below during errands for a few weeks and have received so many compliments.

 

 

 

 

The Fall/Winter 2017 Collection is a celebration of strength and resiliency. We are women who know that a dream without a plan, without action is merely a wish. We fall and fail because we are done playing small. We do hard things because we see the gap between the way things could be. We stand in the gap, we face the darkness and know that when we emerge we will be stronger and more resilient versions of who we are created to be. We do not just survive, but thrive.

Sierra Barber

 

Sierra Barber is a self-taught encaustic artist based out of Port Dover, Ontario. Her process involves a repetitive build-up of thin layers of melted wax that create forms specific to how the material was applied, allowing the material to gradually build and transform into something that appears to have happened organically. Sierra’s work has explored themes of preservation, the collection of memory, artificial memory, virtual nostalgia, and curiosities of time.

deerjerk

 

deerjerk‘s – aka Bryn Perrott’s – woodcut art hit my radar when I saw her incredible protest sign amidst the masses at the Pittsburgh Women’s March in January. Her work has been used as beer labels, band merchandise, tattoos, and more though she’s best known for the individual woodcuttings. Bryn’s high-contrast relief carvings feature themes like animals, death, and religion with a folk art feel that often mix cuteness with gore. The pieces are incredibly affordable and sellout fast, so you should go have a look at what’s currently in the shop!
