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.

WHY DOES TRADER JOES NEVER HAVE ANEMONES?

TWO OF THESE AT THE FOOT OF A BED WOULD BE AMAZING.

KILLER COLOR COMBO.

This picture makes me so happy.

A LITTLE EDGY FOR ME BUT SUPER COOL.

THOSE DINING CHAIRS ARE SINGING TO ME.

Probably b/c they have a sheepskin blankie on them. #allthecozythings

Chairs, Greige Design | Covet Living

PRETTY IN PINK RUG.

Jenny Keenan always has pretty things in her insta. She’s a designer I’ve loved / followed for a long time.

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.

MY FAVORITE ACCENT COLOR.

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.

Oversized Ticking Pillows | Covet Living

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.

HAS THE WOMAN EVER HAD A BAD HAIR DAY?

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.

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.

Handpainted Wall Mural | Covet Living

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.

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.

Saturday Musings, Winter Edition

Let’s spitball, shall we?!


 
File this under NEED for my office to house tile samples.  Plus it tickles my nostalgic pickle and reminds me of an 80’s card catalog-esque something in the Burris Library. {via Dovetail Furniture / to the trade only.  Contact me for pricing.}

dovetail-antique-dresser-for-tile-samples

I ONLY love / wear jewelry that’s either an everyday timeless staple, or a really unique antique something-or-other.  I feel like this GORGEOUS herringbone diamond ring checks both boxes.

diamond-herringbone-ring

I’ve had to source a TON of antique oushaks / kilims / anatolian rugs this year for clients, and I accidentally bought this stunner last week while pounding said rug pavement.  Finding the good ones takes some hunting down, but they’re so worth it.  This is so gorgeous in person I can’t even tell you.

oushak-rug

Can I do this to my eyelids on New Years Eve? Crested Butte prob isn’t ready for that, but I’m doin’ it anyway. Cuz there’s no other day of the year when you can get away with either dressing like it’s the 80’s, or dressing like a ho bag. Except maybe Halloween.

Spring Greens & Orecchiette pasta dish via Cup of Jo, whom I trust for just about anything.  Can’t wait to try.  The roughage balances out the carbs… right?

DAMN is this good advice.  I saw this quote a few months ago and it resonated with me in about 99 different ways, because I feel like it’s the common denominator of all the lessons I’ve learned in the past 5 years or so… Protect your peace by kindly stepping away from toxic situations / people… protect your peace by setting boundaries and setting the right expectations, personally and professionally… protect your peace by knowing there’s a solution for everything, so remember not to panic, because everything always works out… protect your peace by doing the best you can every day but beyond that, knowing that you can’t worry about what you can’t control. Yadda yadda.

Tabarka can do no wrong for me.  This one is Touareg 8 and it’s kinda moody and I’m smitten.

I couldn’t tell you if Anthro’s upholstery is comfortable, but the 90’s Central Perk Friends lover in me loves this velvet chesterfield of theirs. I ordered the fabric swatch (Color: Forest) and it’s TO DIE FOR.

I’d also take ANY piece of furniture covered in this stunning color of blue velvet.

Maybe not a huge sofa but something vintage and bad a$$ – like these vintage Billy Haines loungers:

Gotta use these antique brass pulls somewhere.  Would be boss on a darker piece of furniture (e.g. deep deep navy or a grey, like maybe Farrow & Ball’s Down Pipe).

Preach sistah.  Truer words were never spoken.  I CANNOT believe I’m 35 years old. Like, cannot.  I think 1990 was 10 years ago and remember **every single** detail of the 3rd grade like it was yesterday.  My point being, dang that’s a good reminder not to squander ONE SINGLE opportunity you have, because time flies. And whatchoogotta be scared of?  ‘Sides nothing.

Tricky to find a cement tile you haven’t seen on the Pinterest merry-go-round 997x, but this Taza pink & burgundy one is new to me, and I’m in love.

I’ve also seen this guy’s black & white counterpart too many times to count, but in this blue hue?  It’s a little bit different (and somehow edgier) – and I love it.

I saw this rug, gasped, then ordered the other half of my brain aka Karrie to buy this rug for her master bath last week, and I’m chomping at the bit for it to come in the mail.  We needed something warm with some color and texture to give us another layer in there, and this was the missing puzzle piece. #obsessed

THESE PENDANTS.  I can’t take it.  They’re obviously antiques and I obviously need them.

brass-pendants That’s a pretty bouquet and a pretty dress.  I’m a chick so naturally I love all things wedding – just love much simpler things the older I get.  I’m pretty sure if I’d gotten married at 24 I would’ve had a Cinderella ballgown and fussed over everything; now I hope if / when I get married it’s the most beautifully understated, unfussy and stupidly fun thing ever.  Also – that photograph is by India Earl, whose work I LOVE.

I accidentally bought these sparkly stilettos a few weeks ago. Because they’re the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen.  You see a lotta sparkly heels out there, but up close these are like, DIAMOND ENCRUSTED and perfect.  I also scored them on eBay for about 70% off which is the only reason I sprang (or is it sprung?) for em.  Can you say New Years Eve?

Love this piece from Dovetail Furniture (to the trade only – contact me for pricing). The simple detail on the doors is gorgeous, but the metal keeps it gender-neutral. I’d use it as a TV stand, a sideboard in a dining room, an entry piece… anything.

Just saw this stone at Cabochon La Jolla last week and had to actually ask if it was marble (…it is).  But the linear quality to it made me think it was quartzite, so I was all kindsa confused.  In any case, I LOVE love loved it for all the variation in (monochromatic) tone, for the warmth of it and for its veining.  They said it’s super unique, and because I’m an A-hole, I can’t even remember what it’s called. #epicfail

Can you even?  I can’t.  Merry CHRISTMAS!  Yep, I said it.  And can I say this outloud? …I’m annoyed that I feel like I have to kind of watch my mouth and can’t even say or sign my emails this time of year with “MERRY CHRISTMAS!” anymore, because I’m afraid I’m going to offend someone.  Can’t we all JYEST settle down and appreciate that there’s kindness in that sentiment and that people mean well when they say it?? If somebody passed me and said “HAPPY KWANZAA!” or “HAPPY HANUKKAH!!” with a toothy grin on their face, I’d be inclined to feel warm & fuzzy on the inside and smile back and be like, “right back atcha buddy!”; not to get my little white cotton underpanties in a big fat wad.  Just sayin’.  Pretty sure there are more important things to fuss over.  So Merry Merry, people!
