G P & J Baker for H&M

Another H&M collaboration for the win! Working in the world of interiors I see beautiful wallpaper and fabrics daily – a favorite has always been the iconic British wallpaper and textile house GP & J Baker. They have teamed up with H&M to bring a few fabulous floral and geometric prints to an amazing line of affordable pieces. Shop my favorites from the collection below.

Cane Craze

Owning a home has been such a fun journey, however I am continuously making a list of projects I want to start or pieces I want to acquire. Recently I have been drawn to the look of natural cane and light wood. It still has an airy feel and isn’t the commitment of a dark, heavy wood piece or the opposite, a stark white piece. I purchased this credenza for my guest bedroom and absolutely love it. Now if only I could find a place for the chair below. And what a fabulous bar the armoire would make!

Gola Sneakers

I wish I was spending my summer in sandals however I have been reaching for my sneakers due to a recently fractured foot!  I came across Gola tennis shoes and love the designs not to mention their storied past – the company dates back to 1905!  So many amazing styles that have been revived from their collections over the years – I think I found my next purchase.

The Art of Layering

A few months back when I was in New York I stumbled upon the new Gorjana store in the West Village. I immediately fell in love with the pieces {and the merchandising}. The girls working there were so fun and helped me layer and try on all sorts of amazing pieces. I am 5’11” and sometimes I find the finer pieces just don’t work on my frame. After a little guidance {and layering} I scooped up my first two pieces and already can’t wait to add to my collection. Best part – the fine finishes, the light weight and versatility of each piece.

Dressing Debate

Some days I wish I had a closet full of high-end party dresses for everyday wear and other days I wish I could live in sweatpants and tennis shoes. I typically settle on a happy medium of casual dresses and flats or jeans and sweaters but lately I am reaching for nothing but comfort. I scooped up these and these and have a feeling they are going to get a lot of weekend wear.

Neck Scarf

This summer I have been reaching for my light weight scarves and bandanas to add a twist to my basic summer knits. There are so many ways you can tie it but I love a simple knot near the neck. When you aren’t wearing it around your neck try tying in your ponytail or as a headband.

Summer Table

Now that I own my own house entertaining has been top of mind; especially since the longer days of summer are officially here. Aerin Lauder is back at it again with Williams Sonoma adding even more amazing pieces to her everyday collection. The wine bucket is first on my list – just the perfect piece to chill your summer rose.
