Party of 5

Some patriotic swimwear to kick off your holiday well as some fun news - we're expecting! Shuffler child number 3 will join us this November. Remember when I didn't blog at all in April? #firsttrimester But it's over and I'm feeling much better!

So cheers to my growing family and a fun holiday weekend ahead with lots of pool time, friend time, and family time. See you next week!

Safavieh Stools

Garden stools are perpetually on my radar. Great size, highly versatile, instantly chic.

Their popularity isn't going anywhere and I just found these blue/white numbers from Safavieh that are perfectly perfect:

At under $100, I think a mismatched pair flanking a settee would be lovely and affordable. Although garden stools are a little easier to come by in retail these days, I do think finding blue and white ones is harder and these are quite pretty.

Shop these three here, here, and here.

Friday Crush

This image from Chenault James Interiors' Insta has been on my radar for a good long while. The desire for a built-in kitchen breakfast nook never leaves me and I L-O-V-E the idea of taking a high-end fabric that you would NEVER allow your children to eat on and coating it to create a perfectly slick, wipeable surface. So clever and chic.

I am on a plane to Spain this weekend (heading back for work - remember I went last year?) so I'll be away from the blog next week. Enjoy doting on the dads in your life and I'll see you the week after next!

Catch Me in the Washington Post!

Friends, I'm so excited to share that The Washington Post recently asked me to weigh in on their Splurge or Save column...and it's available today!

I got to pick a subject of my choice so, naturally, I picked Chinoiserie.

Head on over to the online edition and see my picks for worthy splurges and smart savings for some of my favorite, classic Chinoiserie items.

And for locals, pick up the print edition and check out the Local Living section.

Special thanks to Megan McDonough for reaching out and including me.

Restrained sophistication. Love the twinning of the painting and side table. And THAT LAMP. It's by Kelly Wearstler for Circa Lighting if you are interested. What I always admire about truly neutral spaces are their command of texture and dimension. The sofa, blanket, and rug all have varying textures...the lamp has dimension as does the wallpaper...and then the swirls of the table and painting take it to another level. So well done. Check out the full project here...

We are kicking off a true summer weekend...hope you have some fun plans. See you next week!

Katie Rosenfeld NYC

It's been a while since I've written about one of my favorite designers - Katie Rosenfeld - and, boy, do I have a doozy for you today.

Check out this maximalist New York City apartment...Katie and her client did not hold back and the results are stunning.

My personal favorite space is the bedroom featuring Les Touches with that punctuation of spring green. But every space is thrilling to look at with hearty doses of Chinoiserie and color.

Check out the full apartment here, along with some notes on the design from Katie...

Eddie Ross always has the Midas touch...and this Insta peek at how his master bathroom is shaping up at his new house is pretty much everything that is right with the world. The blue/green Le Lac colorway is iconic and coupled with that tile, this will be #bathroomgoals. Can't WAIT to see this one in its final state. 

Summer has begun. We'll be hitting the pool and Ana Claire will make her dance debut in her first recital. Hope your weekend has fun plans. See you next week!

Catalog Pick: Jacqueline Dinner Plate

Thus far, I have opted for all white when it comes to our casual dinner plates. But I have recently fallen in love with these Jacqueline dinner plates from Ballard Designs:

The scalloped edge, dots, and design are just gorgeous. Perfect for summer AND holiday time. 

And I can't stop thinking about creating a patriotic table by layering it with these plates from Juliska (that I actually own...hmmm...):

Beautiful stuff, right? Those Ballard plates are immediately at the top of my wish list.
