Wish List: Straw Entryway

It’s no secret that I love straw accessories, both for the home and the wardrobe. So it should also come as no surprise that I have a lot of them lying around my apartment.

Recently, I’ve been thinking about taking all of my straw accessories and curating them into a beautiful entryway statement, just as these photos show. I love how each of these entryways instantly conjure the feeling of adventure—like you could just grab a hat and hit the beach at a moment’s notice.

What do you think? Is a straw entryway on your #WishList, too?

1 Chair, 3 Ways

I have been loving challenging my inner designer with this series, plus reading your comments both here and on Instagram make me so so happy. I’ve been scoping out all the furniture in my apartment and decided to try out styling my living room chair for this edition of 1 piece, 3 ways. Keep reading to see how I did it, and don’t forget to share a comment with your favorite!

Chair 1: Seeing as I can never get enough shibori, I decided to layer the two pieces that I have. The end result is a very boho, relaxed vibe that I’m sort of loving.

Chair 2: Talk about another piece I just can’t get enough of: the sheepskin throw from IKEA. I have 3 of these and I just love layering them all over the house—on the floor of my closet, over a comfy chair, over a dining table chair, you name it. So it should come as no surprise that I decided to try one over the chair in my living room for a comfy, cozy feel.

Chair 3: If you’ve followed the blog for a minute, then you know that this is usually how I have things set up. It just about sums about my favorite things: soft cashmere, Vogue magazine, and diptyque candles.

Can’t wait to hear which option you like best!

Apartment Refresh

It’s officially official: I’m a chronic redecorator. And I’m ok with it. Keep scrolling to see the updates I’ve made around the house since my last blog update.

Another blue and white vase to add to the collection.

A beautiful new dish from my friend, Stephanie Intelisano.

Hand-painted patterned pillow made from fabric that we bought in Thailand.

Sea shells also from Thailand, as well as sage.

I guess one can never have too many black and white patterned pillows because I scooped these two up from the Alameda Point Antiques Fair.
