Censer Incense Burner

Censer Incense Burner-1-Design Crush


I haven’t burned incense since college, but Censer makes it look so chic that maybe I need to give it another try. The chalice base and porcelain dome are most definitely not the wooden ski-like incense burner I once owned. But it’s functionality doesn’t stop there, place a votive inside and the dome lights up transforming the piece.

Juniper & Scout-2-Design Crush

I reserve the quiet ritual of French press coffee for chilly winter weekends, and vessels don’t get much prettier than this high gloss ceramic beauty with a copper pull.

This bar of Black Gold Equilateral Soap has an activated charcoal bottom to deep-clean pores and is scented with lavender and tea tree essential oils, plus it has that easy-to-grip shape. Pamper yourself or leave it out for guests.

My purse is basically a blackhole, so this Tropical Linen Pouch would be perfect for helping me get organized. It would also make a great gift, you could fill it with other little goodies or toss in a gift card.


Juniper & Scout-5-Design Crush

Moscow mules are my cold weather cocktail of choice, and while they’re traditionally served in copper mugs I  love these copper cups as a chic alternative. I’d also happily use one on the bathroom sink or to plant a few small succulents.


Juniper & Scout-6-Design Crush

How sweet would this It’s Good to Be Home embroidery look hung over the front door or near the coatrack? I love the modern take on such a traditional craft.


Juniper & Scout-7-Design Crush

I get so dry when temperatures drop, and this Rosewood + Blood Orange Lotion Ball looks like a fun way to stay moisturized. It would also make one heck of a stocking stuffer.


Juniper & Scout-8-Design Crush

If you are or have a creative insomniac in your life you may want to pick up one of these Creative Ramblings Journals. I’d put mine on the bedside table so I could make note of all of the strange Google searches I think of at 3:48am!

Lostine-1-Design Crush


With the holidays fast approaching (gulp) I’ve got my eyes on the lookout for unique goods perfect for gifting. Lostine is a well curated shop featuring handmade and vintage items that I’d not only happily give to loved ones, but keep for myself. A set of the candleholders above would make any Thanksgiving table.

Actually, It Is Easy Being Green


Bloomsbury pattern // Susanna Vento // The Transcontinental Affair

This season there’s one color I can’t help but see everywhere I look, and that’s green. Green of all hues and shades, super saturated and pleasingly pastel. From home interiors to fashion to everywhere in between, this color that’s usually making a departure come autumn is all of a sudden making a play to stick around!

The Vintage Vogue

The Vintage Vogue-1-Design Crush


I’m admittedly a homebody. I love my home, I love being surrounded by things that hold meaning, and I love spending lots of time with my pets. But as we head into colder weather my time indoors increases even further, and I find myself doing what can only be described as nesting. Padding my space with a few new pretty things as I give it a seasonal deep-cleaning. One shop that’s caught my eye lately is The Vintage Vogue. Charlotte, the artist behind it all, gravitates towards a muted palette and natural materials that I just can’t get enough of.

Fine Little Day


The Grid Blanket // Glasilium Vase // Birch Knitted Wool Mittens // Storm Wall Hanging

I’d love to pillage the virtual shelves of Fine Little Day! Their carefree, simple philosophy goes a long way to explaining why they choose just what they do to sell in their shop. It’s about enjoying the everyday, not taking ourselves too seriously, and embracing the imperfections in this crazy thing called life.

Haus Candles

Haus Candles-1-Design Crush


You read about a company, you ooh and ahh at the packaging, and then you finally see (smell) it in person and get it. Such was the case with Haus Candles. Each of the their ten scents is named after a type of haus that is the inspiration behind the carefully developed scent. That, partnered with the styling below, has me lock, stock, and barrel.

Stol Guitar Stand

Stol Guitar Stand-1-Design Crush


I don’t play guitar, but I always have the goal to someday pick it up. The Stol guitar stand pushes me even further in that direction, considering the instrument would look eons better perched upon it than in my clumsy hands. The Stol (Swedish for chair) is collapsible, snap the two wood frames together then knock them down to store flat.
