Let Mother Nature set the trend this month with Sherwin-Williams Unfussy Beige (color SW 6043). We just love how it works with products inspired by nature. From fashion to home furnishings it feels comfortable, with a simple sense of elegance.



Inside or out the Curated Sea Shells from Wisteria and the Barnacle Planter from Terrain both add that natural element your spaces crave.


Of course with our LOVE of lamps, how can you resist this unique Quartz lamp from Willams and Sonoma Home.


Omri Dress by Anthropologie

For date night? how can you say no to this simple yet gorgeous dress by Anthropologie?!

We all know pillows are a quick, easy, and cost effective way to bring trend into your living space and we really responded to these from Target and West Elm.

Textured Chevron duvet

This chevron duvet from Anthropologie sums up the trend beautifully. We love how comforting this bedroom feels mixing Mother Earth with the design elements of pattern and texture.

Modern lantern Bartlett cordless lamp

Last but not least our Bartlett ivory cordless lamp on brass looks great with this "Unfussy" color of the month.

Thanks for listening and let us know what you think!

Hi Pam, We had one but we quickly sold out (test order). While we’d love to reorder soon, it will be a while. Hopefully we will re-introduce them late this year?

Hi Michael, it is on our near future bucket list for sure! It’s a matter of meeting large order size requirements with vendors for our bulb, but we are getting closer;) BUT it is a nice, warm color value, perfect for nice ambience, good for reading when you are under it’s glow. Thanks! hope that helps.

I am considering purchasing four lamps for my living room. I need to know if they are dimmable. Thanks.
