I’ve got home goods on the brain right now and a need to make everything a bit more serene. That sums up Lovely Things #4. Wood. Copper. Soft, splatter-y prints. Also, a getaway. I could really use a getaway in a Norwegian cabin. Check out lots more Lovely Things roundups!
I want to hole up for a month or two in the peaceful Norderhov Cabin.
These brass and mirror trays are great, too. I love these for dressers, vanities, or pretty toiletries in the bathroom.
It’s hard to find a cute dish rack — this one is probably the cutest one ever.
These copper watering cans are a handy classic — and easy on the eyes so you can leave it hanging out with your houseplants.
HELP. I want all these pretty standing planters. Especially the grey and the rose pink ones.
Happy Friday, friends! I’ve been enjoying time this week with my good friend, Jenna, while she’s visiting me from Brooklyn. We’ve gone to the ocean, picked fruit and flowers, talked for hours, and I’m looking forward to taking her to more shops around town. I’m also looking forward to doing some cooking! Well, light cooking, mostly making salads and ice cream (we have this simple ice cream maker and it’s great!) since it’s supposed to be 100 degrees this weekend. Have a fun one! See you next week. ♥ xo Jen

Portland boutique and gallery, Tilde, has an aesthetic that is decidedly unique, fresh, and modern. Specializing in local and domestically produced products, Tilde carries a large selection of jewelry, handbags, home goods, art, stationery, air plants, ceramics, and apothecary boasting high quality craftsmanship, pops of color, and clean lines. Located in the heart of Sellwood, a charming South Portland neighborhood known for walkability, great shopping and dining. Tilde is a long-standing favorite destination and shop owner, Debbe Hamada, is known in the community for bringing in wonderful things from small makers.
The large, modern space utilizes beautiful mid-century furniture as backdrop for a wonderful selection of goods. You’ll find lots of jewelry, including pieces from Portland favorites Demimonde, Betsy & Iya, and Kiersten Crowley. I also recommend checking out the beautiful French barrettes, scarves, and other sweet accessories. There are art prints from a bunch of very talented artists, including: Julianna Swaney, Archie’s Press, Mai Autumn, Animal Sleep Stories, Archie, and Michelle Maule. Debbe stock a variety of handbags from the likes of Irish designer and cult favorite Orla Kiely, the well-made vegan leather line from Matt & Nat, and several others. There is also a huge selection of delightful stationery, candles, soaps, and more apothecary goods from lovely natural lines, and so, so much more!
During my visit I was delighted to overhear a mother mention — after stopping in with her small son — that it was their Saturday morning ritual to make a visit after breakfast to look at his favorite items in the shop. In fact, the shop was quite busy despite the early hour and coinciding gorgeous weather. Inviting seating and the lovely staff make it easy to want to get lost while hanging out and admiring all the pretty. Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for a loved one or a special way to brighten your own day, Tilde always has lots of of great options from independent makers.

I’ve been enjoying looking through the pieces from the Commune x West Elm collaboration that just came out. The Los Angeles-based designers teamed up to produce a collection that celebrates the breezy, sun-washed indoor/outdoor West Coast lifestyle. The Commune folks also wanted to make sure to create pieces that people will love so much they’ll want to take them with them from home to home or pass down to loved ones.
My personal favorites are the Commune Leather Sling Chair, the Commune Storage Bench, the Low Wooden Side Table, the Diamond Rug, the Marble-Topped Coffee Table, the Commune Leather Baskets, the Commune Terracotta Planters, the Copper Commune Arch Mirror, the Commune Copper Sconce (hello, moon!), the Brass Wall Art, and the Yellow Circle. I hope that black circle wall hanging becomes available — so cool! More HERE.
Since we last visited the lovely Woonwinkel shop in downtown Portland’s West End, they’ve had a little makeover. And since they are also having their big Summer Sale right now (thru 8/7 — many more items on sale in the Portland shop), I thought it would be fun to post some new shop photos. Plus, they have AMAZING new things in the shop (gimme all those pillows and towels!!!). Stop by to see that glorious pink wall, fantastic neon, new window displays, and overall refresh in person. Woonwinkel is located at 935 SW Washington St.
Woonwinkel is located in Portland at 935 SW Washington and is open Monday through Saturday from 11AM to 6PM and Sundays from 12PM to 5PM and you can shop Woonwinkel online 24/7. Follow @woonwinkel on Instagram and Woonwinkel on Facebook to stay in the loop for new items and more upcoming events!
