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.

LONG HAIR AND LONG DRESSES = SO PURDY.

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.

HEAVEN ON EARTH.

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.

HAAAHAHAHDHJKSHDAKHDAHAHHAHA.

Totally me + Karrie during awards season.

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.

THE MUSHROOM TOAST FROM GJELINA.

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?

YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO MY DINING ROOM TABLE.

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.

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.

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).

WORN LEVIS + CHUNKY KNITS.

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.

ON EITHER SIDE OF YOUR HEADBOARD???!!!

I’M SURE I’VE POSTED THIS BATIK BEFORE.

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.

Kate Spade Sofa, Erin Gates | Covet Living

YES.

As seen on my friend Jessie’s Insta. Couldn’t agree more.

And then they made it in a new colorway: lagoon.

That’s all folks! We’re off to the beach for the day, then yoga. Followed by fish tacos for dinner, Monopoly, then the cloud + more Netflix. OMG I HAVE THE BEST LIFE EVER.

PS: comme toujours, imma post this and then be editing and adding links while y’all are reading… cuz it’ll take me till Monday & then it won’t be Sunday morning musings anymore.

Steph's Scanned Signature

(and Karrie)

 

Gift Guide #1: {Our} Wishlists

Happy Monday, Turkeys!  Hope you guys had a great weekend full of green bean casserole-induced food comas and a lot of tree trimming.  Now that the holidays are in full swing, we’re bringing a new GIFT GUIDE every day this week, and kicking off today with both of ours!  So Mom, Dad, Tim & Santa: these are a few of our faaaavorite things!  Readers: hope you love some of our picks, too!

Hey, it’s Steph!  I’ll go first….  Now.  That right there is the face of a child who is trying to either charm her way out of trouble, a child who just sharted, or a kid who is saying, “CHEEEESE SANTA!”  But for realz… I’m not saying I would turn down anything on my Christmas list if it magically appeared under my tree, but when it comes down to it, all I really want for Christmas is to get Gus home safely sans an international incident / TSA emergency…  to watch It’s a Wonderful Life on Christmas Eve with my family…  to take naps on my Dad’s couch and have cocktail hour at the kitchen table promptly every afternoon at 4:59pm… and to slam some Pizza King. Nonetheless, here we go

1 – Gigi New York Uber Clutch in Black Embossed Python, $145.  I don’t know what I love more about this – the tassel, the embossed leather, or the size of this bad boy (13″ x 9″).  It’s beyond perfect, and it’s in the top slot for a reason. #numberonepick

2 – Dior Crème de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm, $27.  Twenty seven dollars for lip balm is straight cray; I know.  Or rather, knew, until I dabbed by ring finger in the pot at Sephora and tried it on.  It is bliss – and incredibly flattering on. Otherwise, here’s my favorite budget-friendly lip gloss.  Either would be great stocking stuffers.

3 – Sole Society Deco Statement Necklace, $39.95 $27.97.  Heavens.  What a stunner.  The ballet slipper pink/emerald/seafoam color combo is great.  PS, fellas – dingdingdingdingding! – this is a good one for your lady.

4 – Everlane Slouchy Cashmere Tunic, $155.  This sweater makes me want to throw on comfy leggings, pop popcorn and curl up for movie night in.

5 – Fendi Blue Patchwork Sunglasses, 260 GPB.  Did I say I didn’t want anything on this list?  …I lied.  These are FAN-freakingtastic.  I stumbled across them on Helena’s blog a week or so ago and about fell over.

6 – Crème de la Crème tee, $38.  I’ve been eyeballing the Zoe Karssen $85 version of this forever, but I can never bring myself to spend $85 on a t-shirt, and it’s also almost always out of stock.  I know this bad boy’s been around the block for years, but je don’t care & je l’adore toujours.  (Can you tell I minored in French?  #fancy #franglaisorbust)

7 – Kate Spade 2015 17-month Large Agenda in Green Painterly Cheetah, $36. All the tech-y calendars and apps that keep me organized are great & all, but there’s just something charming about doing things the old fashioned way.  Plus, this would just make me happy to pull out of my bag every morning.  Note: I just saw this sell out on Kate Spade, but you can also find it here.

8 – JaxKelly Gold Dipped Turquoise Earrings from Pigment, $28.  I will ogle over flashy chandelier earrings all day long, but you know what I end up in every day?  Some version of denim, a white blouse and pearl stud earrings.  These little turquoise ditties punch up the pearls a notch or five.

9 – Lafco Pool House candle from Bixby & Ball, $60. Pool House is a the scent I make a point to take a long, luxurious sniff of whenever I’m at Bixby & Ball, but Betsy Bracken (one of the shop’s owners who – people of Muncie, holla! – is from our beloved hometown) introduced me to Kai’s Reed Diffuser ($78) earlier today, and I *might* have a new favorite.  Tuberose, Gardenia, Lily & Jasmine…  Betsy said it smells just like Hawaii…  I don’t know what it smells like, but it. is. wonderful. PS: Everything is 20% off today with code CYBERMON (!)

10 – Burning for You matches from Paper Luxe, $11.  Cheeky, adorable and a great pop of color for your coffee table!  I ran across them at Solo on Cedros today, but you can’t purchase from their website, so I pimped you out to Paper Luxe – who I wasn’t familiar with, but they have some great stuff, so do yourself a favor and snoop around.

11 – Vintage Brass Monogram Ring from Bixby & Ball, call for pricing.  Everything is 20% off today with code CYBERMON!  This one (on my ring finger) isn’t online, but you can call (858.436.7214) and order it, have it monogrammed and they’ll ship it to you easy peasy.  As with the bit about jeans & white tees & pearls, I lean towards classic, timeless, everyday pieces when it comes to jewelry, and this I love.  I first spied this on Kristin’s right hand (girlfriend has the best and most perfectly curated jewelry collection of anyone I know) ut hers has a “P” on it. For her hubby’s name. How sweet is that??

12 – Everyone’s a Dumb Whore cross stitch from Furbish, $48.  (Cyber Monday: 20% off of orders of $75 or more with code HOLLADAY).  I feel like I’m already getting a look of disapproval long-distance style from Jayne, but every time I read this I cackle out loud.  Karrie actually posted about Subversive Cross Stitch 3 years ago and has one of these in her bathroom that says “Home Sweet F*cking Home.” Bwhahahaha.  If you have time to DIY, pop over to Subversive’s site.

13 – Aloha Splash-Proof Pouches, $24-32. I need one of these splash-proof, Tyvek-coated pouches for beach days and yoga days…  cuz otherwise what am I gonna do with my sopping wet gym clothes or my wet bathing suit?  Not that the plastic Piggly Wiggly bag in the bottom of my other bag isn’t always a fun solution – or just letting ’em soak & stank up everything else they touch.  The small version would also make a great makeup bag.

14 – Charlotte Olympia Kitty Velvet Flats in Black, $495.  I should be smacked for putting $500 kitty cat flats on a gift list, but c’mon.  They’re seriously adorable. Image credit: Sincerely Jules

That’s all I got!  Wait I totally lied.  This peel is amazing.  Ok now I’m done…  Until Wednesday (Gift Guide #2 for Guys), Thursday (Gift Guide #3 for the Gourmand), and Friday (Gift Guide #4 for Gals)!

xoxo!

FOR STEPH’S PREVIOUS YEARS’ PICKS: 2013 | 2012 | 2010

It’s hard to believe it’s been another year since last Christmas, it really is. And that it’s been approximately 30+ years since that photo was taken above. GAH. This year it took me a while to think about the things I’ve been lusting after for my Dear Santa list… and I think that’s cause, like Steph wrote last year, I don’t need anything, really. I’m truly grateful for all that I have, right now. But hey – I’m a bloggess – and what does a bloggess do around Xmastime?  She makes a freaking Santa List. Here goes – some of the things I’m asking St. Nick to deliver to me, thank YOU.

1. A buncha versatile, all-sorts-of-fun shoes (clockwise from top left): J Slides Slip On Sneakers – How cute are these?! I can see these with some black ripped – or boyfriend – jeans | Black Patent Leather Oxfords from Clark’s – so shiny, so versatile |  Steve Madden Caveat – F Boots are biker chic; love em | NikeWomen’s Free Flyknit 4.0 Running Shoes are lightweight and totally cute enough to wear with regular ol’ street clothes.

2. The Courtney Bib from BaubleBar: Repeat Offender Alert. Yup, this bib necklace was on my Dear Santa list from last year, but I must’ve been a bad gal, cause Santy neglected to drop it off in my stocking. So I’m asking for it again!

3. Ina Garten: Make It Ahead: The newest collection of recipes from my perennial homegirl, Ms. Ina Garten, which are curated to be made ahead of time. Because we’re all busy these days, and that includes Ina, who in my mind is hunkered down in her Hamptons home making roast chicken and a perfect martini for Jeffrey:

4. BaubleBar ear jackets: I am LOVING the latest trend of ear jackets. Super edgy yet classy at the same time – available here and here:

5. A couple inexpensive, cozy cardigans!: Left: Black Long Sleeve Front Zip Cardigan – Only $29! | Right: Graduated Colorblock Cardigan – Only $24!

6. Smartphone Photo Cube Printer: Am I the only one a little sad that Facebook and Insta have all but made printed out photos obsolete??? Ok, so enter this cute little gadget, which is compatible with all portable devices and prints out photos in three sizes.

7. These sets of pillows from Furbish: How downright droolworthy are these, available here and here:


8. Michael Kors Slim Runway watch: Sleek, masculine, and glam all at once.

9. Entertainment Weekly subscription – You guys. Do you love pop culture like I do? Movies and TV and books and celeb gossip and everything in between?  I am a bit of a pop culture whore, and for that reason, Entertainment Weekly is the best mag to read. It’s chalk full of juicy up to date morsels of pop culture goodness.

“We’re gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny f—ing Kaye.” – Clark Griswold

Here’s to a wonderful holiday season, honeys!

xoxo,
