Oh so dreamy! While designing the new Favor jewelry collection for Fall/Winter 2014, Monika was inspired by Art Deco and glam Americana. I love how radiant her delicate pieces are in 14K gold and sterling. My favorites are the 14K gold shaped oval ring, the abacus ring (love the gold!), the mini stitch earrings, the deco necklace and deco earrings (in both silver and gold!). As usual, Favor’s prices are fantastic and I love that Monika always uses reclaimed silver and other recycled and reclaimed metals whenever possible. More HERE.

There are so many great things in the new Schoolhouse Electric collection! I’ve spent the past few days at our new house working with repair people and spending those mind-numbing, overlapping 4-hour work windows wandering around the empty new space — decorating with my mind. Of course, snoozy things like a new sewer lines, electrical repairs, functional faucets and a zillion moving expenses take precedence, but a girl can dream. We need A LOT of lighting, shelving, appliances and hardware — so it will be a little at a time.
Some of my faves from the new Schoolhouse collection are the Luna Natural Brass pendant, the Plaza Chandelier, the Factory Modern No. 4 Sconces, the Library Ladder, the Brass Rails for pans and kitchen tools, Brass Planters, SECO Marble Board, the Modern Scout blankets and I’m totally obsessed with the all the Cabinet Knobs (brass hex!!). They’re also working with some AMAZING artists and designers this season, like Jen Ament, Fail, Wayne Pate, Studiopatró, Leah Duncan, Rennes, Jill Dehan and many others. More HERE.

I love the new Nanushka collection for fall by Hungarian designer Sandra Sandor. I’m also happy to see one of my favorite models Sibui Nazarenko! My favorites are the sleeveless jumpsuit, the enki silk shirt (inspired by the dance of the seven veils!), the anat cape and the maia long cardigan. I’m into Sandra’s exaggerated shapes, textures and proportions. They’re still so soft, wearable and versatile. It would be amazing to visit her shop in Budapest someday! More HERE, HERE, HERE and lots of pieces HERE.
I love the stunning new jewelry from Fail! For Fall/Winter 2014, Christine decided to move away from stones and play with color, texture and light. I also love that while experimenting with with layers of gold, bronze, brass, sterling silver and rose gold — she found herself back at her roots as a metalsmith. It always feels good to come back and embrace your roots with the fresh eyes that come with more knowledge and experience in your toolbox — total magic! My absolute faves are the trace teardrop hoops (rose gold AND brass, please!), elongated bastet hoops in bronze, flicker earrings and all the amazing stackable rings! More HERE.

We bought a house! I’ve been hinting at it here and there, but didn’t want to jinx it before the deal was done. Now we are in the thick of figuring out which stuff to pack, sell, give away or donate and there’s a bunch of things to take care of at the new place before we move. My head is spinning, but we’re so excited. You can see a few photos of our new home on Instagram and I’m sure I’ll be posting more progress pics! Have a lovely weekend! xo Jen
