In the spirit of the Fall season, I’m doing a country home post. A successful country home combines three elements: comfort, nature, and beauty. Woolrich is an outdoor clothing company that also sells great products for the home. I thought their wood furniture and flannel throw blankets would belong perfectly in a rustic, country inspired house.
It’s worth taking a second look at the coffee table. Below the glass surface is a crafted wood canoe. I think that’s such a great detail that would really bring character to any room in a rural home.
I love these World Market tea kettles. The copper tea kettle is my absolute favorite, without a doubt. I hope to one day have a kitchen with all copper pots & pans. For right now, it’s just a pipe dream. Although, the copper tea kettle is pretty affordable, ringing in at $39.99. The aqua kettle is only $19.99! I’m a fan of World Market. I don’t think I’m alone in wanting to gravitate towards affordable kitchen shopping.
The pictures belong to World Market, and the picture titles were the names given to the products on their site.
I just stumbled upon an Architectural Digest article posted in August. The photos below belong to Architectural Digest and if you click them you can read the original article for yourself. It touches on interior design in Manhattan, and Mica Ertegun’s experience designing the apartment below.
I think Mica Ertegun‘s eye for design is fabulous. Her rooms are full of artistry, but just barely full. She has a way of putting exactly enough furniture and art in a room. The spaces she designs are mesmerizing but never overwhelming. Each piece of furniture, and each piece of art, reaches the eye’s a spotlight.
Fabrics are such an important part of design. The fabric you chose, whether for or a dress or a couch, dictates appeal. Clarence House has so many beautiful and unique fabrics. I picked some of my favorites and posted them below. I like prints, which tend to be intricate and bold. These patterned fabrics would be perfect for throw pillows.
As always, click the pictures to go to the site where you can view the original goodies!
Sebastian Brajkovic is an amazing artist and designer. The pieces displayed above, along with many of his others, demonstrate fine art skills. The distribution of colors and painterly quality of the Lathe 1 chair is absolutely stunning. Furthermore, The Lathe Table 1200 is suggestive of a ceramic pot manipulated on a wheel with the spiraling rings. Sebastian Brajkovic is an inspiration.I hope these pieces are just as interesting and beautiful to you as they are to me!
This season Anthropologie bedding is the absolute prettiest! I adore the rosette pillows and and the rivulet quilts. Every item of bedding has some sort of feminine, delicate, and gorgeous detailing. With a birthday gift certificate, I just got a set of crystal lattice sheets from Anthropologie (they’re featured on ‘The Naturalist’ styling, but mine are yellow). They have a 300 thread count, and are tres cute. Plus, they were on sale! I’ll let you know if they are just as comfortable and durable as they are pretty.
P.S. Click the pictures. They lead to a pages where you can view, and maybe even buy (wahoo treats) the individual items.
