Robert Kime London

robert-kime-london-store-boutique-shop-1

Though my decorating tastes lean rather minimal as of late, I’ll always have a soft spot for cozy, traditional English design. While in London last September I stumbled upon one of Robert Kime’s jewel box boutiques. I’ve long admired his textiles and in person his colorful lampshades and vibrant wallpapers were rather magical. I purchased a lovely, little alabaster bowl as a souvenir that sits on my desk as I type. Someday (when my budget is far less modest) I should like a handsome roll arm sofa to call my own…

All About the Details

decorative-accessories-katie-armour-the-neo-trad-wish-list

The well-accessorized console in Jenna Lyons’ photo yesterday got me thinking–it’s really all about the details, isn’t it? Above are some odds and ends I’d gladly display on my future console (speaking of which, do you like this one…?).

1. Salmon Pink Aalto Vase – this iconic vase design was introduced at the 1937 Parisian World Fair. I love the pretty spring hue, can’t you picture it with peonies…? // 2. Large Diptyque Candle – I have been wanting this for ages! Love the all black and its grand scale. 190 hours of burn time! // 3. Resin Tortoise Shell with Metal Stand – well done, Target, well done… // 4. Domestic Art: Curated Interiors – a handsome design book that will inspire me to collect more art…  // 5. Quartz Votive Holder – it’s so chic surely it gives off good vibes… // 6. Hellos & Goodbyes Guest Book – Love the idea of having this for my dinner (okay, more likely cocktail…) guests to sign and record funny memories in my new apartment… // 7. Aerin Round Match Striker – another piece that has been on my wish list for some time. Such a stunner… //

Pillow Party

Though I recently opted for plain white bedding, there are countless more colorful options that I can’t help but admire from afar. Above are some fun new bedding styles for the more adventurous! Clockwise from top left:

1. Scalloped Sham – like Porthault for a fraction of the price… // 2. Toile Sham – reminds me of Kate Spade’s toile guest bedroom, also in handsome grey and red versions… // 3. Morgan Border Sham – so many great color options! // 4. Classic Stripe Sham – bold stripes are timeless… // 5. Ikat Sham – love the blues… // 6. Garden Flora Sham – would be so sweet in a little girl’s room! //

While in Santa Barbara recently I stumbled upon the Jenni Kayne home store. Tucked away in Montecito, the light-filled space is bursting with chic finds. If you love Kayne’s shoes (do I ever…) you’ll be equally taken with her taste in home goods. From the heavenly scented Cire Trudon candles (Ernesto, inspired by cigars in Havana, is my favorite…) to the striking array of dinnerware I couldn’t help but want one of everything. I’ll just have to bring a bit of Kayne’s cool west coast vibe with me to Chicago…perhaps in the form of a place setting.

VISIT: Jenni Kayne Home, 5 San Ysidro Road, Santa Barbara, California 93108
