Rob Ryan bunting

I’m a big fan of British paper-cutting artist Rob Ryan. I’ve known about, (and bought things from) his etsy store for a long time, but just found out about his collection at Heal’s, which includes this pretty amazing looking bunting. It just might possibly be worth the pound conversion + shipping from the UK: I [...]

PUBLIC bicycle

I haven’t owned a bike in… years, but lately have been thinking that it’s time to change that. The J7 from PUBLIC is definitely encouraging this idea: I mean, how perfect is that shade of orange? photo: PUBLIC

90th Birthday

We celebrated my grandfather’s 90th birthday over the weekend. It was simple and small, and really very lovely. I have been incredibly lucky to have him as my grandfather – he has been the very essence of loving & supportive since the day that I was born. My sister and I are the only grandchildren [...]

Happy Friday everyone! Tomorrow is my grandfather’s 90th birthday party, and Sunday is Easter, meaning I have a weekend full of family, friends, and food in front of me. You really can’t ask for much more. This quote has been on my mind lately; I am finding that there is a lot about life to [...]

knock off tulip side tables

I’m digging these Saarinen knockoffs from Overstock. I have two (vintage) knock off Saarinens that I picked up a few years ago for pennies and use as plant stands. I don’t think I’ll ever stop thinking that this is just a killer shape for a table. Immer White Marble Mid-Century Style End Table and Immer [...]

KORS Olympia flats

speaking of shoes, I just noticed that my favorite flats of all time are back in stock at Zappos.* I spent two years+ searching for the perfect black leather ballet flats, and finally found them last fall in KORS Michael Kors’ Olympia flats. No embellishment. No sparkle. No exterior branding. Just plain, super soft, black [...]

three legged club chair

I picked up this chair from the upholsterer’s for a client today and I am so pleased with how it turned out. It is really just perfect in their space.* We used Mod Green Pod’s Atticus fabric in Cherry – it’s a beautiful fabric that I’m sure I’ll be using again in the future. A [...]

last night I finally started unpacking the last few boxes from my move back in December, and set to getting my closet organized. For the first time in many, many years I have room to store all of my shoes in the same place.* Walking in and seeing this makes me embarrassingly happy**: It’s not [...]
