Blanket Up

Yes we’re still in the midst of the dog days of summer, buuut cool fall nights are just around the corner. I swear! And when that time comes there’s nothing cozier than a soft blanket when you’re gathered around a bonfire, cheering for the home team, or simply watching a movie curled up in the living room. Don’t worry, I’ve gotcha covered – no pun intended!

I first spied the genius unihook in Alyson Fox‘s Austin home this past April and fell in love. I meant to ask her where/who they were from, but I was having way too good a time to remember to do so. Now I’m happy to report that they’re by Pat Kim and each one can support up to 30 lbs! I love the versatility – use it to hang dish towels in the kitchen, hand towels in the bathroom, or even coats.

Are you brave enough to bring some neon into your home? The trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, and I for one am a-okay with it! These killer bedding pieces from Australia-based Feliz pack the perfect sized punch that won’t make your room look too kiddy or teeny bopper. The white acts as a neutral to even out the look, and I gotta say I’m feelin’ it! (via Anthology)

PS: I know the last one is gold not neon, but I couldn’t resist!

That feeling of finding out someone who’s really good at one thing is also really good at another? Yeah. The Char-Bea collection by Ashley Goldberg for Urban Outfitters gives me those feelings in a big way. Her art translates so well to textiles with those big patches of color!








Crane & Canopy



Crane & Canopy is all that and a bag of chips, and I’m about to spill the many reasons why. Bedding is one of those final touches that make a room feel finished and pulled together, it’s also one of the more expensive elements in a bedroom. It seems like every search I’ve embarked upon has ended with me being in love with a set waaay out of my price range. (Followed by wine and chocolate.) Crane & Canopy has revolutionized all of that. First by creating their own designs,  second by working directly with premium companies to cut out the middle men and lower costs.



But here’s the thing, just because the textiles are actually affordable doesn’t mean they’re lower in quality. All of Crane & Canopy‘s base fabrics use the highest quality cotton with 300 to 400 thread count weaves, optimized for softness while maintaining lifetime durability and longevity. And every piece has special touches like convenient corner ties, easy care zipper, exquisite piping, or beautiful embroidery. Not to mention the bold, graphic, and inspired prints created by their designers. (I picked up the Octavia for an upcoming project!)



The icing on the cake (or bag of chips) is that this spring Crane & Canopy has partnered with New York’s Safe Horizon to give back to domestic violence victims. For every bedding set purchased they’ll be donating a complete bedding set to to Safe Horizon’s shelter residents. I can only imagine how amazing it must feel to someone looking for even the most basic of human needs to safely and comfortably snuggle up at night.



Crane & Canopy also sells the most delicious sheets with colorful edging that I can’t wait to pick up, they look perfectly crisp for summer! Also just launched is their spring pop-up shop, filled to the brim with lovely modern things for your entire home – not just the bedroom.
