Lovely Things #4

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.

I love the new Blushing Taupe Blooms Wallpaper and all the rest of the new designs, too!
honey-kennedy-rebecca-atwood-wallpaper-02

I love this wood and brass tray! Breakfast in bed or a nice coffee table spot to put candles, coasters, and incense. This reminds me of my art deco one.
honey-kennedy-art-deco-handled-wood-tray-03

These brass and mirror trays are great, too. I love these for dressers, vanities, or pretty toiletries in the bathroom.

Oh, helloooo! I love these new Black Bubble mugs in both sizes. I want to stare lovingly at one while I sip my morning coffee.

I love this fringy Coyuchi linen table runner. The wildflower runner is beautiful, too.

It’s hard to find a cute dish rack — this one is probably the cutest one ever.
honey-kennedy-white-metal-dishrack-10

These copper watering cans are a handy classic — and easy on the eyes so you can leave it hanging out with your houseplants.
honey-kennedy-haws-copper-watering-can-plants-09

HELP. I want all these pretty standing planters. Especially the grey and the rose pink ones.
honey-kennedy-west-elm-turned-leg-standing-planters-11

First, I need a mudroom with cute tile and beautiful molding. Then I need this oak bench to put in it. And all the planter pots and things.

Lovely Things #3

Hello! Here we go with another installment of Lovely Things! This roundup seems to be feeling the love for tomato red, hot pink, muted apricot hues, grids, black straw, abstract art, mid-century, and cool vintage babes. And shoes. I really want some new shoes and I’m kind of loving those red booties, but I always end up with practical neutrals for autumn. We’ll see — maybe I’ll go rogue this year! Check out more Lovely Things roundups HERE. ♥

I know I’ve been talking a lot about sunglasses, but I also love these Acne Studios shades.
honey-kennedy-acne-studio-sunglasses-01

My friends at Seamwork put together this beautiful Painting with Dye tutorial.

Flying saucer? Little black hat? Such a great little incense burner.

There’s just something about red suede shoes.

Lovely Things #2

Hello! Here I go with my second installment of LOVELY THINGS! This time it seems to be more about home goods, travel, and art. It’s strange that, without trying, these things that my eye tends to gravitate to all sort of fit together in color and mood. Totally randomly lured by them, but cohesive all the same. Oh my word, I am coveting so many home things. It’s hard when you can see the design symphony your home could boast, but the piggy bank just shakes its head. Little by little it will get there. Check out more Lovely Things posts! ♥

Love this viewpoint of a 17th century church on Monserrate in Bogotá, Colombia.

This beautiful little specimen terrarium display case is high on my wish list.

I’m absolutely cuckoo for this Forest Green Velvet Settee and all the emerald, grey, and duck egg hues. Also, this navy velvet sofa is very close to my antique Chippendale rescue.
honey-kennedy-lovely-things-2-21-forest-velvet-settee

Such sweet floor cushions in geometric waves prints. Nice for kitties, pups, babies, or just so your own bum is comfy relaxing on the floor.
honey-kennedy-lovely-things-2-05-floor-cushion-pet-bed

This fun Geometric Wool Tile Dhurrie is a great piece! Especially if the #ihavethisthingwithfloors reality of fancy tile prices is getting you down.
honey-kennedy-lovely-things-2-06-graphic-tile-wool-dhurrie

Ummm…. I can’t unsee these phenomenally beautiful kilims by Taher Asad-Bakhtiari. His textile work is brilliant.

Such a clever stacked jewelry box in layers of maple, cork, and copper.

Lovely Things #1

I have a backlog of beautiful things to share, so I am going to start posting these Lovely Things roundups to try to get all the wonderful finds out there in a semi-cohesive way. Here are 20 of them now — more coming soon! xo Jen P.S. The photos are clickable too. ♥

I love this Mondrian-esque slip dress — I just wish it came in silk or rayon.
honey-kennedy-wilke-dress-01

This dress is from Mr. Larkin SS2014, so it isn’t available anymore, but DAMN. That amazing print — and the entire collection — was inspired by artist Niele Toroni.

Cavalcade!

It’s been a while (again) since I did one of these mega Cavalcade! posts. With taking time off last week to take care of Zelda–I’ve got a backlog of lovely things and not enough time in the day. So, here are some things I’ve been admiring lately. There’s not really a theme per se, but it looks cohesive through my rosy goggles. Maybe a “blush silk Morocco quartz crystal diamond whiskey jetsetter magical rays” kind of theme? I dunno–that’s all I got.

I love this old photo of model, Jean Shrimpton. Such great style–those bags!
honey-kennedy-jean-shrimpton

This print from Liam Stevens is fantastic–love his work.

This rose hip mask sounds nice. They say it leaves a “rose hip milk tea” scent on your skin.

This pretty Dawn in Montauk candle smells like melon, honey, grass, sandalwood and sun.
