Living With The Butcher

As our much-anticipated butcher shop project breaks ground this week, we were inspired to bring you the fundamental elements of our design in the form of a farm-fresh living space. In true Savannah style, kick back in those classic Hunter boots on an industrial coffee table while getting face to face with a longhorn – it’s what’s for dinner. 1. Set the tone more towards sophisticated than barnyard-chic with Cisco’s Spider Chandelier. Spanning an impressive 72″, the large fixture can fill a room without seeming too heavy. 2. Always have the fields on your mind even when inside with a geometric planter from Light & Ladder. Try filling with a low-maintenance variety like jade or a common succulent. 3. Take fancy farm living head on with this stunning photographic print from on of our favorite art sources, The Animal Print Shop. Use a minimal mat with a 1-inch frame…

Crocodile Kid

Growing from little to big is an adventure in itself, which is why it pays to be prepared for whatever monster may jump into your path. For creepy critters with sharp teeth and scaly tails, we’re going incognito with items for casa and kid that take the fright out of creatures in the night: Sources: 1. This Raindrops fabric by Donna Wilson guarantees no crocodile tears will be shed when used for a pair of shams or impromptu pillow forts. Made of lightweight cotton, this sold-by-the-yard fabric is printed in the historical silk town of Macclesfield in the UK. Click here for more mom-worthy finds. 2. Keep hidden from scales and tails until morning inside Land of Nod’s cargo tepee. Two large pockets are perfect for holding your field guide and extra pair of safari socks. 3. Fine Little Day’s new Gran pillow in indigo remind us of sharp pearly…

Artist Spotlight: Sweet & Vicious

We can’t think of anyone better to showcase for the latest Artist Spotlight than the super talented team behind Sweet & Vicious. Written and styled by Libbie Summers with stunning photography by Chia Chong, Sweet & Vicious is all about whipping up wicked-sweet creations in your kitchen that feature daring culinary combinations to delight your taste buds. The hundreds of recipes, elixirs, and extracts throughout the book aren’t even the best part; just try and keep a straight face as Libbie shares the conception of each and every bite along her journey from fierce foodie to culinary producer. For our Sweet & Vicious interior, we took inspiration from the bright and poppy photo behind Libbie’s Good and Plenty Cupcakes. The playful contrast between the bubblegum pink icing and daring black and white patterned blouse had us envisioning a young but fierce coming-of-age girl who’s not afraid to style…

Our Top Picks: Embroidered Pillows

Whether you’re looking to renovate or simply give new life to your home, throw pillows are one of the easiest ways to spruce up your space on a budget. To keep your next arrangement of cushions from falling flat, try selecting pillows that have a textural element, such as embroidery. Creating a cluster of pillows with varied applications (seen above) allows for a more layered and sophisticated look, while infusing personality. This week we pulled a handful of our current embroidered favorites for you to explore: Sources: 1. Herringbone Diamond Pillow – Coral and Tusk / 2. Labyrinth Persimmon Pillow – Dwell Studio  / 3. Feather Trim Long Pillow – Coral and Tusk / 4. Ari Medallion Pillow – Anthropologie / 5. Diamond Echo Pillow – Villa Home

The Best of NY NOW 2014

Despite the wicked sickness circulating through the office (and most of the Southeast) this past week, Joel survived his trip to New York to check out some of the latest retail vendors across the globe. NY NOW (formerly New York International Gift Fair, or NYIGF) is a large design convention held every year to showcase the freshest home and lifestyle products for wholesalers and the trade alike. While we as a design studio tend to gravitate towards timeless neutrals and international products that celebrate the essentials, there is certainly something for everyone in the expansive Javits Center. Here are some of our favorites from Joel’s grab bag: Clockwise from top left: 1. Morihata is a refined Japanese company that offers high-quality bath products and textiles. 2. We love the hand-sketched quality of Nell & Mary’s dish towels. 3. Keep your mister looking dapper with fun bow ties from Birdkage. 4. Forage…
