Margaret Howell

Every year, every season, I love the collections from Margaret Howell. She designs classics that are timeless, versatile, and show special attention to what feels crisp and put together, but with pieces that are comfortable and made from natural fibers. These are some of my favorites from her Spring/Summer 2017 collection and some of them are actually available in the MH shop already. I especially love this first look (pockets!), the second and third looks, and the outfit with the pink shirt. I always love a jaunty scarf or cravat! More HERE.

Thing Industries

I’ve been admiring Thing Industries, by Bridie Picot and her friends, for a while now. At her NY-based design studio, Bridie works on pieces that she has been envisioning for her own home, as well as fun collaborations with other designers. I absolutely love that she she describes her company as “specializing in optimistic and adventurous objects for home” — so perfect. Some of my current favorite Thing things are the Boob Hook, the Banana Pillow, the Wood Beach Towel, the Bookend Planters, the Brick Blanket, the Upside Down Shelf, and the Tray Set. I also keep thinking about the fact that there’s a lot of great wedding and housewarming gift ideas in this shop! More HERE.

Quiet Town

My mind keeps drifting to sunny days ahead and I’ve loved looking at the cheery designs from Quiet Town. Lisa and Michael Fine live in Brooklyn and, so far, their sweet designs consist of twelve bath rugs, nineteen organic canvas shower curtains, and perfect S hook designs in two finishes. My current favorites are the Ojai in Moon Jelly, the Topanga in Night Ride, the Mendocino in Moon Jelly, the Orient in Night Ride, the Narlai in Hidden Beach, and those Brass Acadia S Hooks. Aaaannnnd… I’m pretty sure all of us need a massive greenhouse with a clawfoot tub to luxuriate in. Right? More HERE.

Friday!

honey-kennedy-deborah-turbeville-bath-house-01

Hello! Happy Friday! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I’m laying low while recovering from a terrible cold. I’m hoping to get a burst of energy to get out into the garden and do some gardening and rose pruning, but we’ll see. I’m working on some special rose posts if any of you have been interested in growing some of the beauties you’ve seen on my instagram feed. I’ll go over my experience and current favorites. I’m hoping to help you to not feel intimidated and go for it — it’s so rewarding. Anyways, back to tea, blankets, and Victoria. And Riverdale (don’t judge — it’s so dark and weird for Archie!). xo Jen
