Designer Rebecca de Ravenel (remember her gorgeous home?) loves to entertain and has been sharing a bevy of hostessing tips online. Recent features on One Kings Lane, Vogue, and Tory Daily, show off Rebecca’s serious dinner party skills. I love her unconventional mix of table linens, dinnerware, and serveware. Many of her pieces were collected on her travels, something I love to shop for while abroad as well (“how did you fit all those cabbage plates in your carry on?!” -my husband). Below, find some gorgeous photos of Rebecca’s table settings and my suggestions on how you can get a similar look at your own soirées. READ POST

Today is my birthday (31 feels good!) and I am delighted to share the day with the debut of the AERIN collection for Williams-Sonoma. Tastemaker Aerin Lauder was inspired by her family’s home in Palm Beach and I’m all about the line’s timeless, tropical vibe. From champagne buckets to bamboo frames, the new collection boasts a wide range of blue and white dinnerware, gilded decor, and chic woven outdoor furniture. I’m especially coveting the ikat linens, scalloped plates, and basketweave cachepots. I should treat myself for my birthday, right?! Below, find more lovely pieces from the AERIN for Williams-Sonoma collection. READ POST

Above, some classic cabbage dinnerware. READ POST
Do you love to bake? I don’t, but I love to eat cookies. These playful designs from Rochaix Cookie Cutters on Etsy have me wishing I had more skills in the kitchen.

Explore some of my favorites below (the pug!), and shop the full collection here. READ POST
Monday greetings! I thought we’d kick off the week with some of my recent vintage finds available online now. It’s a good thing I don’t live Stateside, otherwise it would all be in my cart! Today is our one year anniversary in Denmark (how time flies…) and we think we’ll be here at least another year, so I’m refocusing my efforts on decorating our apartment. I’ll keep you posted on my progress!
