There’s so much beautiful bedding at House of Baltic Linen right now. Of course, we all know that I’m a bit of a linen hoarder, but I think these are also a great gift idea for wedding season if you know the couple well enough to go rogue from the registry. I’ve personally got my eye on the Charcoal Heavyweight Linen Coverlet, the Grey & White Striped Linen Duvet Cover, the Navy Ticking Heavy Linen Summer Blanket, the Dove Grey Linen Duvet Cover, the Dove Grey Linen Euro Cases, the Natural Striped Linen Pillowcases, the Light Grey Stonewashed Linen Sheets, and the matching Light Grey Linen Cases with Ruffle. That’s my very edited list because everything in the shop is gorgeous. More HERE.

I love the new TOAST summer collections. Every single shot from the lookbook makes me long for some (currently out of reach) languid summer days spent lounging somewhere far away removed from daily routines and responsibilities. Doesn’t that sound wonderful? Sigh. My favorites right now are the Ikat Check Apron Dress, the Striped Linen Pinafore Dress, the Duck Egg Linen Cross Back Dress, the Chandini Print Robe, the Grey Embroidered Pleated Skirt, the Striped High Waisted Bikini Bottoms and Top, and the Wide Brimmed Straw Hats. I’m also cuckoo for Toast’s Bed Linens and Tablewares! More HERE.

I’ve been so taken with the stunning oil portraits by Bernard Boutet de Monvel — particularly from the late 1920s through early 1940s. His colors are a dream and it makes my heart skip a beat that he usually included a floral element especially when it came to ladies and children. His wife Delfina and daughter Sylvie were often his subjects, but he was beloved by the European and American high society sets. Also, his interior design, fashion illustration and eye for the most lavish, yet tasteful, detail was absolutely phenomenal. Oh, the flower studies, too! I can’t wait to read more about his life and the circles who were clamoring for his deft hands when this gorgeous book comes out in September! More HERE.

Mrs. Gilbert Kahn (Sara Jane Heliker) and the bouquet, 1938. 5. The Maharajah of Indore, 1929. 6. Delfina playing guitar, 1936. 7. Sylvie, age 19 in 1941. 8. Delfina with baby Sylvie in her cradle, 1922. 9. Self-portrait at the Ritz, 1932. 10. Flower studies.

A few months ago Ink & Peat started carrying some dreamy clothing, like breezy tunics and cute embroidered dresses. I’m also crazy for the poufs, the woven pillows, beautiful textiles, the cardamom chocolate, the pretty scarves, the bells, soaps, and the cookbooks. There are some wonderful cards and cute stuff for kiddos too. Check out all the loveliness below…
