Hello friends! I know it’s been way too long. Work has been crazy and we actually just got back from a spontaneous trip to Hong Kong – which I hope to share some pics soon. But right now, lets talk about Rikumo – a lifestyle brand that celebrates Japanese craftsmanship, design, and aesthetics. These products were actually some of the first things in our new home. Not only do they fit beautifully, but they’ve set the atmosphere and created a lifestyle. We start off the mornings with a mist of hinoki and end the nights with the refreshing, relaxing scent of cucumber, watercress and mint – water soy candle. Their room shoes are amazing – simple, light and what my feet slip into the minute I come home from work. I shared some of my favorites, but seriously, I want it all.
I shared a photo of this vase on my Instagram last week when it launched, but I wanted to share this on my blog as well (because I love it so much).
My friend Jackie of Munster Rose teamed up with Doug Trotter of Prairie Garden to create Kindred – a new line of beautiful handmade vases. They are shaped by hand and then glazed using a single-dipped glazing process, making each piece unique but equally beautiful. There are two different styles, the horn and upright (which is the one I have) – both have a simple and beautiful design – truly a perfect piece for any home. You can read more about the collaboration here and purchase them here.
Wow, I’ve completely neglected this little blog of mine… so sorry! It’s been beyond difficult to find a good work/life balance. I know that’s getting old, and I wish I had a better reason for my absence, but that’s all I got.. help!! Any suggestions??
Anyway, nude + black is one of my favorite color combo – here are some things I’ve been eyeing :)
Thank you AlwaysMod for my new tea set, which needed some major updating. This Stelton Emma Collection is absolutely perfect – the pieces are classic, simple and minimal. My favorite piece is the tea jug. It’s a Scandanavian classic with both form and function. The top easily twists on and off – you just put some loose leaf tea in the filter, pour in some hot water and the built-in smartfilter will actually stop the brewing process once the tea has reached the desired strength. It also keeps the tea warm for awhile, so when I take it to work, I can enjoy it the whole day.
