Brick Pouf by Hem 

This is one of my absolute favorite pieces in store right now. From a distance the pouf looks like the perfect shade of forest green but then when you draw close you find it’s confettied with lime and grass green! There is seriously a party going on all over it. So comfortable. So inviting. Put your feet up. Set a book on it. Move it around the room.

Waffle Towel by Hay

These towels are sooooo soft! I swear it’s like marshmallow cotton or something. I love the burgundy and blue together. A statement combination.

Egg Pin by Georgia Perry

I wear my heart on my sleeve and this egg on my lapel. With compliments a plenty. It’s fun and unexpected. And it’s an egg, man. Why wouldn’t you want to wear it?

Hooray For 😍 Current Color Trends 😍

How many times have you scrolled through design blogs and thought to yourself, I need a room like that. Yes, often times photographers step in and stylist's perfect. But honestly, it's more about seeking out inspiration then sourcing the appropriate pieces. Thankfully for you, this is one of our favorite things to do around here. And we're here to help. So be sure to stop back as we post photos we find inspiring, along with the right pieces to get you there. 

ILY : Truly, Madly, Deeply do.

Round UpBethany AshmunComment

It's Cupid's Holiday, and your love secured a spot just for the two of you. The candles are lit, the food is rich, and you can't imagine yourself anywhere else. You sip, you dine, you smirk and gaze at one another. And, then it happens. They slide across the table a gift specific for you. And, Truly, Madly, Deeply begins it's serenade overhead. Suddenly you're encapsulated in the moment as you hold dear each and every lyric, receive your gift of appreciation, and let the tears devour you.

"I'll be your dream. I'll be your wish. I'll be your fantasy. I'll be your hope. I'll be your love.  Be everything that you need.  I'll love you more with every breath."

..I want to stand with you on a mountain.  I want to bathe with you in the sea. I want to lay like this forever, until the sky falls down on me..
 

..And when the stars are shining brightly in the velvet sky, I'll make a wish send it to heaven
then make you want to cry..

..the tears of joy for all the pleasure and the certainty. That we're surrounded by the
comfort and protection of the highest powers. In lonely hours. The tears devour you..

..Oh, can you see it baby? You don't have to close your eyes. 'Cause it's standing right before you.
All that you need will surely come..

..I'll be your dream. I'll be your wish. I'll be your fantasy. I'll be your hope. I'll be your love. Be everything that you need. I'll love you more with every breath. Truly, madly, deeply do..

..I want to stand with you on a mountain. I want to bathe with you in the sea. I want to live like this forever, until the sky falls down on me..

Wormwood Absinthium Cream by Prospector Co.

"I recently purchased this lotion and I can't get enough.  It looks great on my dresser and the masculine scent is subtle enough that I don't feel like I just walked off set of an Axe commercial.  It makes my skin look and feel great."

Morihata FD Style Bottle Opener

"I have been eyeing this item for quite some time.  I love it's simplicity and sleek design.  This is the bottle opener that you can leave out on the counter, bar cart or hang on a hook without looking like you didn't clean up from last night's excursions.  No more passing the can opener or a lighter and watching your house guests struggle to open their Sweet Child of Vine.  I have also been known to show off my roots by opening a beer bottle via the edge of a counter but it's time to stop bruising my wrist (and stop ruining my counter tops) and say yes to this beautiful, easy to clean, rust proof bottle opener by Morihata."

Plant Pedestals by Areaware
I love this set. Use them not only for plants but books, incense, cat figurines...

Lavender Takenaka Bento Box
The cutest way to pack up your snacks. I love the great color combinations and stacking options to accommodate different food items.

Vintage Mushroom S + P shakers (in store only)
Such a charming little set. I can't resist a bit of whimsy every now and then.

THE PLANT JOURNAL 8
"Every page takes my breath away. Beautiful imagery, paired with insightful and poetic articles. Reading it is a meditation."
 

SOLSTICE CANYON'S AZTEC CHOCOLATE ALMOND BUTTER

"Sooo yummy! I haven't had a nut butter quite like this one. Not overly chocolaty, with a complex flavor and a bit of spice. A little warming snack."

Broyhill Saga Set - in store only

These are incredible vintage pieces from the golden era of modern design.  Beautifully made and constructed, by mid-high end mid century American maker Broyhill.  Characterized by the atomic "star" patterns, the Saga line is one of the most sought after of Broyhills out there. I hope I look this good at 50 plus. 

Mid Century Teak Hutch - in store only

This piece is stunning. Beautiful warm teak with sliding glass doors on top and sliding teak doors with sculpted dish pulls on the bottom.  No marks or signatures to be found on it and a design that I've never seen before which makes it pretty rare and it's in excellent condition to boot. 

Pendleton Yakima Camp Throw -

Hard to get much cooler than Pendleton.  Classic, beautiful wool blanket with an awesome vintage-style design, made right here in 'merica.  boom.

1. This In The Grass Pillow by HAY is so fun. I know there's someone on my list that would appreciate this...maybe it's me...

2. I'm headed to Mexico with friends next month and I'm packing this super soft Pendleton Towel for sure. It'll be perfect for beach hangs and whale watching. 

3. I've never had to buy teacher gifts before, but I think these Malin and Goetz votive candles will be perfect for my daughter's preschool teachers. Perfect size and smell oh-so-nice.

4. Seriously?!?! These Hipstory Postcards by Illustrator, Amit Shimoni are insane. They are all so fun, ridiculous and thoughtful in their characterization. I can't get enough.

FMW FAVS from Sara

Round Up, New ProductsRebekah CookComment

This week's FMWFAVs is from our buyer, Sara! See her picks below. You can also see previous staff picks here.

The new issue of Gather Journal just arrived, and it's amazing. Somehow, they were able to successfully merge the eerily cosmic, the prehistoric, and the sometimes absurdity of a museum diorama with rich food photography -- it will force a shift in perspective.

While I'm usually a vintage fan (and the early version of this radio can be found!), the Model 1 by Tivoli is a radio that I have to have. They are minimal in design but manage to package great sound and better reception in a classically beautiful, functional piece that is a joy to use.

Yes!! We just received our 100.2 Baskets from Doug Johnston in specially chosen colors. I can't say enough about how much I admire Doug Johnston's work - his studio's experimentation. It's kinda like exploring how a line can travel through space...

The Egg Bowl by Workaday is silky smooth, lightweight, and has just the right amount of play to it's speckled design throughout. The perfect size to hold in your hands and fill with a hearty salad, or bowl of pho!

Gym Hook by HAY - For towels, for tomorrow's t-shirt, or to just plain make a statement standing alone. I fell fast for these gym hooks the moment I saw them. Awooga!

Dur Linen Handkerchief by Fog Linen - The soft feel of the linen and rich indigo color are enough, really. The old spirit in me, wants to start carrying handkerchiefs; I think I'll start with this one.

The vintage wooden bison -These enormous creatures symbolize provision, gratitude, blessing and prosperity.  What a powerful symbol to have in your space and give it some northern rustic warmth.

Soap holder - Aromatic soap dishes that give your bath or kitchen a soft modern touch and sophistication!

McKracken Edition 1 Rug by Gur - There is no such thing as too many rugs. I love that this rug is both soft and bright without being too busy, the colors are sure to compliment almost any arrangement.

"I'm a creature of habit and I always have a cup of tea (or two) before bed.  Enamel tea pots are so classic and beautiful. I love the wooden handle next to the black enamel.  Also, the Black mug by graham Morkebacke -The size, the matte glaze, the simplicity...such a perfect little cup."

Both of these items are found in store only.

"The weave detail on this throw is stunning. The slightly speckled yarn and imperfect selvage make the blanket feel very honest and cozy. I love the fact that every dainty triangle is block printed by hand!"
