Emerald green has long been one of my favorite colors and I’m so happy to see it’s having a moment this autumn! I love how interiors and fashion often intersect like they are for this trend and can’t wait to take advantage and add a few pieces in this rich, deep hue to my home and closet.

I’m always looking for opportunities to share more of my favorite affordable finds with you, so today we’re debuting a new series called Quick Picks where I’ll do just that. Ten things that I’m crushing on from the last week or so that I don’t own but wouldn’t mind having in my home. No art, no designer anything, only things that are within reach. (If you see something you want to check out further just click on the image!)

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!

Studioart is the creation of Nadia and Gianfranco Dalle Mese, and deeply rooted in their family’s long tradition of leather processing. Here leather goes beyond the fashion world to become a unique interiors solutions – custom-made leather walls! Manufacturing, eco-friendly processes, and original combinations of high quality leathers are just a few of their strongpoints. Studioart offers a wide selection of leather wall coverings, but one of their latest – Frammenti (seen here) – is my favorite for its sharp lines and irregular angles.

The dining room is my favorite room in the house, for a few reasons – it feels the most complete decor-wise, it’s the best interpretation of my own personal aesthetic, and it’s usually the cleanest. (I’m nothing if not honest.) I love that when I’m entertaining it’s the place we all tend to congregate, so I want it to feel comfortable but I’m also not opposed to visitors thinking I know what I’m doing when pulling together a space.
You can check out the current-ish room design here and here, but I’ve been thinking about how a large round table might change the dynamic. Of course that got my mind spinning with the possibilities of an entire room redesign! Because my dining room is painted such a light color – and that isn’t something I’m anxious to change – I’m daydreaming about filling it with some darker materials like walnut wood, leather, and brass.
I’d balance all of those heavy tones and weights out by keeping the tableware and serveware in check with lots of glass, ceramic and porcelain, and lightly colored marble. This large acacia print would anchor everything together and bring a nice dose of nature into the decor.
Candlesticks and hurricane lanterns, along with that beautiful three-armed chandelier, are all I’d need to set whatever mood I’m going for – moody and dramatic or light and bright. I’d say the look of this reimagined room might be called Casual Industrial Modern and I’d happily welcome it into my home!Posted In floors, furniture, house and home, lighting, living, walls
I’ve had my eye on neon wall art for several years now, but the closest I’ve gotten to pulling the proverbial trigger is printing a poster of a photo I shot of one. (Girls! Girls! Girls!) Recently I came across Electric Confetti, a shop that creates custom neon signs as well as sells ready mades. It’s a bold statement for sure, but with the right messaging worth every dang cent.

Each clock in the Hands of Time series has a unique face made from a sanding disc that was previously used by designers from the Design Academy Eindhoven. The discs are worn through use, and over time each one becomes a fingerprint of each designers work that’s then turned into a functional object that can be given a new life. It’s clear that the materials each designer works with greatly impacts the resulting wear and tear, which leaves me wondering what was created with each disc.
