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.

While I was working on my pretty Rose-Tinted Visions sunglasses post, I also bookmarked a bunch of lovely black, brown, and tortoise shades that I love. I’m starting to let the autumn vibes in, so this palette is my pick for when those leaves start to fall. No matter what the hue, I always gravitate to that old movie star glamour and vintage bad boy classics. I might be kind of a nerd, but I think those who wear good shades in any season add a little mystery, intrigue, and swag. I love the color of this brown pair (also, my middle name!) and I think they would look good on fellas, too. I own and love this glamour babe black pair that are 40% off. I wear mine ALL THE TIME. Those are the only ones on major sale, but there is a range of price points in that sea of fanciness. You can click the pics in this new roundup, too! ♥
There are so many beautiful things rolling in at Rennes. While I don’t want the summer flowers, fruit, and veggies to stop, I am looking forward to the transition into fall. Julia’s little shop is stuffed with lovely pre-fall things right now — just add tights, sweaters, and boots when it gets more chilly. I love this striped linen dress, this black dress, this pleated black dress, the crimson Krasner Jacket, the fuzzy Petula Coat, the black Gretel Tote, this insanely beautiful Milo wallet, and the dreamy silk macaroon boudoir pillows. More HERE.
I love this beautiful Claudia Li collection for S/S 2016 by the New York-based designer who originally hails from Auckland, New Zealand. The only tease is that I can’t seem to find any retailers, so here we are… longing. Her sculptural draping in seaside breezy white and blue is such a breath of fresh air. Her designs are so elegant and also capture a woman who is irreverent, creative, independent, and nostalgic. Just an absolutely stunning collection. I very much look forward to seeing more from Claudia Li! Keep up with Claudia on Instagram.
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.
