Meus

I love this amazing, new to me shop, Meus. There are so many lovely little things that make sweet gifts for yourself or loved ones. Mirachelle carries wonderful designers, like Claire Ginn ceramics, jewels from Seaworthy and Melissa De La Fuente, Cainnon hand-carved combs, clothing from Pippa Romana and Ace & Jig, dishes and ring cones from Bailey Doesn’t Bark, leather goods from All Hands, canvas bags by Nicole Vannucchi and a lot more. I was also so happy to see my favorite whipped seashore honey sold by the jar and in an amazing little gift box with beautiful ceramics, tea, linen and a serving board — such a sweet idea! Here are some of my faves below. More HERE.

Alder & Co.

I love the new things rolling in for spring at Alder & Co. Some of my spring faves are the white cotton slip (so perfect for hot summer nights to come!), the indigo wood block dress, the navy sleeveless dress, the black denim jeans, the sweet Japanese overalls and the white nightshirt. I’m also still very much in love my bday bottle of Cardinal perfume and all the linen things. If you’re in Portland, stop by Alder & Co. at 616 SW 12th Ave. More HERE.

Chris Earl: The Framework Collection

So, I’ve just been sitting here for days staring at The Framework Collection made by Los Angeles-based furniture designer Chris Earl. THAT BED. THAT BAR CART. THE LITTLE X TABLES. Walnut, brass, tempered glass — I love every single piece. To top it off, I am officially obsessed with a Tic-Tac-Toe Set. And let’s not forget Mr. Earl’s stunning Danish Candlesticks, Business Card Holders and ceramics collection. It’s all so beautiful. I want so many of his designs for our new home that other housewares just pale in comparison. More HERE.

“Furniture is more than a mere object in a room. The items that we fill our dwellings with uniquely speak to who we are, what we cherish, and the legacy we leave. Furniture should be functional, graceful and timeless, for it has the power to create a lasting and meaningful impression. Not only does it fill our living spaces, it fills purpose. It hosts conversation and laughter; creating new relationships and strengthening the ones we have. It bears the weight of deep thought and is a marker of our heritage. It moves stories from one generation to the next. Together, let’s build what lasts.” — Chris Earl
