Sunday Morning Musings | 4.2.17

Saturday Flowers Farmers Market | Covet Living

Good MMMMMMORNING!  Ready for me to yack this month’s rainbow of my favorite things all over you??

First & foremost: hit play on this jam – which reminds me of still chilly but bright & sunny early mornings in So Cal… and then peace out to your mental happy place while you look at all the pretty things for the next 5 minutes.

PERFECT FOR MY FUTURE OFFICE.

I’m certain I’ve posted about these before, because I’ve had them saved for years.  They’re divine, and perfect in every possible way.

WHAT SO CAL FEELS LIKE (ALL THE TIME).

Barefoot, breezy, and in pastel cotton candy technicolor colors.

WHAT I WANT MY FRIDAY NIGHT OUTFIT TO FEEL LIKE.

Black on Black | Covet Living

THIS WEEK’S REAL-LIFE FRIDAY NIGHT OUTFIT.

Whoops.

Sexiest Sweatpants | covet living

BUT FOR REAL.

I had plans but they fell through… plus, ya can’t beat a hot date with Gus for Prez, Totinos pizza rolls & Scandal.

GusGus for President

STILL OBSESSED.

And may snap this off eBay for a wedding in the South in May.

Self-Portrait Azalea Dress

Karrie and I are both now the proud owners of 3 of the CUTEST MUGS EVER.  I posted about these awhile back and had to email the Etsy shop owner aka Santa Claus and have her make more. I don’t mean to be a total weirdo, but they legit encapsulate how life feels. PS I swear I didn’t smoke a doobie for breakfast.

A LESSON ON NOOKS.

This pic makes a strong case for a striped bench seat (vs. solid) and a shallow ledge for mismatched frames (vs. a hanging gallery wall).

WAVERLY FOR THE WIN.

Always. I was trolling the streets of Manhattan Beach a few weeks back and popped into Waverly. So much great stuff, as per the usge.

NEVER HAVE I EVER.

Look how pretty.

TWO TONES DON’T USUALLY TICKLE MY PICKLE…

But this contrasting upholstery situation I could get on board with.

ALL HAIL THE 90’s.

They’re back. I would’ve worn that skirt in middle school, and I’d wear it again today.

THE CARIBBEAN VERSION OF THE PINEAPPLE BATHROOM AT CASA COVET LIVING.

This is via Julia Hengel’s Insta, and it’s of the bathroom at the Bahama House Inn. I need the source of that pink pineapple wallpaper stat.

ALL I EVER NEEDED.

I design and lust after a lot of big a$$, spendy kitchens… but truthfully, this is all I really ever wanted or needed. There’s something luxurious about a small, simple space; it means you can only really put it in your most favorite, carefully chosen things.

THE WEAVE OF DREAMS.

Color is also perfect.  Couch also is not ugly.

I LOVE THIS DINING ROOM FOR 3 REASONS.

The mismatched seating, the bubble chandelier, and the grasscloth. I lied – 4 reasons. Those kelly green curtains are icing on the cake.

THE SWEETEST LITTLE HOUSE.

In the Berkeley neighborhood of Denver, snapped on my morning walk with Gus last week. It’s on the block my girlfriend lives on, and every time I pass it I love it a little more. White brick + a Spanish tile roof + OMG those cherry blossom trees in bloom.

IMG_9878

FAVE NEW CAB.

Thoroughly enjoyed by me + a high school buddy this week – to the tune of a raging headache all day the next day, but worth it.  This vino is also allegedly exclusive to Il Postino in Denver, which really chaps my hide. I even asked if I could buy bottles from them and they said you have to open it then cork it before you leave. I’m determined to find a work around.

IMG_9920

YOU KNOW I LOVE NEUTRAL WITHOUT BEING BORING…

cuz I say it all the time. But this I would do on my backsplash in a heartbeat. Backsplashes are TOUGH because they’re like having to choose one outfit that you wanna wear every day (for at least the next 10 years). You wanna land somewhere between doing a classic subway (which can border on boring depending how you do it), and a fun, loud patterned tile (which you may be very well be sick of in a year). THIS, to me, is perfect… the pattern is small and the color is just subtle enough. That hazy grey/blue looks great with everything, and it’s interesting without being overpowering.

IMG_9929

MY NEW GO-TO PEDI COLOR.

And, this non-gel color is very gel-like, in that it lasts for WEEKS on your tootsies. I also have it on my fingernails right now and it’s still not chipped, one week later.

ONE PIECE PERFECTION.

And ever-so-slightly 70’s/80’s.

TICKING = THE BEST FRIEND OF FLORAL.

Pair a ticking euro / larger pillow (less spendy) with a statement throw pillow or pattern and you’ve got a winning combo, yo.

THIS GUY.

Whom I try not to really post about cuz I don’t wanna jinx it. But I adore him.

Chris + Steph | Covet Living

LATEST OBSESSION = finding a pair of vintage brass director’s chairs, and recovering them in a non-tawny velvet.  Those these have a certain charm as is.

PICS LIKE THIS ALWAYS MAKE ME WANNA CUT MY HAIR.

…and go buy a pair of white jeans at Target than I can intentionally destroy to look like that.

SO CUTE FOR SPRING.

I gasped when I saw this – the color and pattern and cute is perfect.  But then I found it on Revolve and it looks goofy on the model.

Summer Halter | Covet Living

WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER.

Another neutral but not boring tile. Perf if you’re scared to do color but want to punch things up a little.

PINK MUDCLOTH IS THE NEW JAM.

I’m pretty over black & white mud cloth (that goes for blue & white batik as well, as pretty as it is), but the pink version feels fresh and delightful.

COZIEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE.

These are from Dovetail and someone had to pry me out of them at Las Vegas Market in January.

SWEET LITTLE COFFEE TABLE.

From a designer’s shop on the same strip.

ALSO FILE UNDER ALL I EVER WANTED.

Takeaways include: a non-stark white, creamy (but not buttercreamy/yellow) cabinet is SO classic.. black & white check marble floors are equally as timeless… and dogs are the stuff of a joyful life – they make everything better.

THIS JAM IS LIKE CRACK.

CAN WE MAKE THIS INTO WALLPAPER?

I was helping a client style an antique hutch in her breakfast room on Friday, and decided to prop one of her old books up on plate stand… was flipping through some of them and flipped to this page of an old copy of the Velveteen Rabbit. How sweet would this be as wallpaper? Or just blown up into a print.

IMG_0059

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL ENTRY WAY.

It really is true – an entry way is kinda like your home’s first impression… like a little preview or the Cliffsnotes for what people are gonna see in the rest of your house.

LOVE FOR A FLOOR PILLOW.

Or dog bed. From LiveSTYLE in Santa Monica.

SEE YOU THIS SUMMA.

And mind you – this table is SUPER easy to recreate – it’s called $10 strings of lights from Tar-jay, plain-white-plates and clear glasses you can scoop up from Goodwill, and save your empty clear bottles from now till then & just soak the labels off. Scoop up some old mismatched dining chairs from Goodwill while you’re at it.

Perfect Summer Outdoor Table | Covet Living

ANOTHER WHIP O’ MY DREAMS.

Via a Sunday morning walk through Karrie’s new hood a few weeks ago.

IMG_8948

I WISH THIS WAS WALLPAPER.

But it’s a painted mural. I’m literally dying to put this in one client’s master bath, in the little nook above the wainscoting / above the freestanding tub. OR in someone’s nursery. But that means I gotta call the little Picasso who did it.

LOOKS LIKE EUROPE BUT –

It’s the flower fields in Carlsbad (about 30 min up the road from San Diego).

THIS KATE SPADE CHAIR %#@&*^!

It’s also a stupid amount of money (like, get serious – Serena & Lily would sell this for $450), but I love it nonetheless.

Kate Spade Halsey Chair | Covet Living

I LOVED GROWING UP IN INDIANA.

But truth be told, while I adore my family, it would be hard to imagine ever moving back. Pics like this, however, make me SUPER nostalgic, and make me yearn for the heartland in the summer – when everything smells green and sounds like cicadas in the trees. Also reminds me of my Grandparents, or mornings eating breakfast at my Dad’s house out in the country, looking out at the back 40 – which looks like this. And just a simpler time.

But it’s such a good one. From Quadrille.

DO Y’ALL FOLLOW ERIN GATES FROM ELEMENTS OF STYLE?

This amazing little Kate Spade sofa is in her new office. But more importantly, she is amazing, and hilarious. One of the few I still follow. And in a world where Instagram has more or less taken the place of blogs where people actually used to have the patience to read text, I would still read anything she wrote.

So, take a bathroom break, grab your coffee, pop a squat & hit play on my new favorite song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0Pt7M0weUI / oh and PS – it’s late and I’m 107 and falling asleep, so I’ll add rest of hyperlinks & credits tomorrow!  For now, some of the pics link directly to the source if you click them… and/or most are on my Pinterest page.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT THIS HOUSE?

I’ve seen a few different shots of this house circulate the past month or so, and I do a deep inhale and exhale when I see it. Truthfully – individually, I don’t know if there’s one item in that space I couldn’t live without or would do in my own house (I would do the bamboo blinds and a neutral palette, but…) …but something about it speaks to me every time I look at it. I love it. There’s something to be said for simple being luxurious.

Coziest House

HEY LITTLE FELLA!

Serena & Lily is killing it lately… among other things, with this little Cooper leather stool. Pop 2 under an open console, and you’ve got back-up seating for a party.

Bowls, Steelite? | Covet Living

THAT SINK IS A REVELATION…

It’s already amazing because it’s integrated with the countertop / also made of marble.. AND because it’s an apron-front (aka farmhouse) sink in a *bathroom*, which you hardly ever see (I’m currently doing this in a kids bath in Wisconsin, PS)… but what I love here is the dropped front – which makes washing chubby grubby little hands much easier for kiddos who aren’t quite tall enough to reach. Kids bath (vanities) are always a challenge, because while you want to lower the vanity / cabinet height slightly to accommodate them, they’re gonna outgrow it faster than a pair of Osh Kosh b’Gosh’s.  Also – love how the center portion / sink cabinet steps out from the rest of the vanity. Anytime you can change depths / heights on cabinets, it adds interest and makes it look way custom.

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DRESS I’VE EVER SEEN.

I say that about a lot of things, but in this case I really mean it. It’s Elie Saab, and I’ve had it stashed in a vault for years. So it’s basically vintage now, which makes it even cooler.

THE PEACH CHINTZ!!  THE PEACH CHINTZ!

I had to stalk this from another blogger to track it down. It’s through Classic Cloth (who used to be with Dessin Fournier in the PDC, but has now moved and I can’t find them). Perhaps I should check Platform 29-1/2. Anyhow. I wanna use it anywhere/everywhere…
