Pretty Patio

Since we spend so much time out there in the summer — I’ve been thinking a lot about investing in making our patio more comfy and cute. I recently noticed that there’s a lot of lovely outdoor furniture at CB2! Since most of it is on sale right now, I thought it would be a good time to post what’s catching my eye. I love the nod to decades past and my favorites are the gala gold lounge chair, the maya wood outdoor chair, the la rêve day beds and sectionals, the caprice outdoor chaise lounge, the pod hanging chair, the smoke grey and brass dining table, the midas gold dining chairs, the sophia black dining chairs, the brass bistro table, the acapulco black egg chair, the brava dining lounge chair, the lucinda mint stacking chair, the wire terracotta planters, the isla white planters, and the ixtapa loveseat. That blue swirling tile is so good! More HERE.

Lovely Things #7

Hello! YAY! Another Lovely Things post comes together. I’m clearly feeling pretty summery over here and I feel like a lot of these things would be nice wedding gifts or birthday gifts for Cancers and Leos. My birthday is coming up and I’m trying to resist the melancholy, but I suppose that’s probably futile. I’m pushing it back by being really enamored with what people are making right now and having fun doing deep dives into handmade magic rabbit holes. I hope you like my finds, too! See MORE LOVELY THINGS. ♥

Stone fruit is coming, so I’m thinking about this Peach Maple Soda recipe.

I’m pretty cuckoo over Trine’s hanging ceramic rainbows.

Jane is making so many lovely things! Her linen pillows are just one.

All these tasseled linen throw blankets are so pretty and perfect for summer nights.

I think one of these stained glass panels might be my birthday present to myself this year.

Love this sweet patio daybed and it’s currently on sale for 20% off.

These silver knot heels are super cute for summer parties and events. And the flats!

Ooooof… I cannot stop staring at this Venus dinnerware. So beautiful!

Yum. A lavender sea salt rimmed margarita sound AMAZING. And ROSE!

These matte blush mugs are my current favorite to sip my morning coffee from.

I’s like a whole set of these handmade oak and leather dining chairs — or just one.

I’m in love with this handmade ceramic chess set.

This sculptural gold mirrored pendant light is absolutely gorgeous.

STUNNING. I love this handmade bleached maple and handprinted paper lamp.

This simple ivory one piece swimsuit is a classic that will look good with jeans and skirts.

If you have deep pockets, my birthday is June 26 and I love this quilt. Just sayin’.

Still feeling this marble and blush wallpaper.

Piles of cheerful, pretty printed pillows make me really happy.

I love this silver vintage alarm clock! And its beige-y pink buddy.

A perfect black linen summer dress! Just add tights and a cardigan for fall.

These beautiful sculptural brass statement earrings are so elegant.

I imagine this citrus and wood fragrance smelling like heaven on a warm breeze.

I’ll be over here — drooling over this dreamy brass and glass ring.

Pretty storage time — love these marble boxes and dishes.

So cool. These wall-mounted kitty houses would be a sweet alternative to a boring cat tree.

Apiece Apart

I’m really feelin’ these dusty hues paired with the bright whites and cheery citrus and marigold shades at Apiece Apart right now by Laura Cramer and Starr Hout. My current favorites from these ladies is the Mauve Novella Maria Dress (all the Novella Maria dresses actually!), the Tangerine Piper Petal Dress, the Citrus Reina One Arm Ruffle Dress (also the cream!), the vibrant silk Electric Orange Tan Tan Blouse, the Mauve Botanica One Shoulder Top, the Cream Zahar One Sleeve Top, the Sanna Cropped Camisole in citrus, the Electric Orange Silk Aroussa Jumpsuit (and the black version), the Mauve Denim Merida Pants, the Sand Washed Cotton Merida Pants, and the cotton Fatima Wrap Cape. Some of their simple white dresses and outfits would be lovely options for brides! More HERE.
