Today I am so thrilled to announce the launch of a new project I have been working on for many months. Buddy Editions is an online art gallery that sells exclusive (you can’t find them anywhere else!), limited-edition art prints by emerging artists around the globe. I was always looking for art online and didn’t feel there was a site that continually introduced new work I loved at affordable prices — now, we have Buddy. On the site you’ll find everything from fashion illustrations to landscape photography by artists from Australia, England, Japan, Uruguay, the U.S., and beyond. Prints start at only $50 and the collection will be continually growing. I cannot wait for you to meet the artists and see their incredible work — curating the launch collection has been a true honor. I hope you find something special for your home and consider gifting some art this holiday season. The site is named after my grandfather and the project is near and dear to my heart. Can’t wait to hear what you think! Thank you, as always, for your excitement and support. xx Katie
Above is a handful of cozy, winter finds I’m lusting after lately. Between the baked goods (shameless) and the decorating, the holidays are my absolute favorite time of year. It’s such fun adding wintry touches to your space — any excuse for buffalo plaid and gilded accents!
1. Kate Spade New York Odds & Ends Trinket Tray – great hostess gift // 2. Buffalo Check Teapot – I’ve become a big peppermint tea drinker lately, this should definitely be in my life // 3. Buffalo Check Wool Throw Blanket – such a classic // 4. Williams-Sonoma Horn Coasters – so handsome and on sale, tie them up with ribbon as a stocking stuffer! // 5. Tufted Gold Bench – only $75 at Target, seriously chic // 6. Kate Spade New York Hampton Street Double Old-Fashioned Glasses – because who doesn’t appreciate a good stripe? //
If you use Pinterest, chances are you’ve come across photos of stylist Jessica de Ruiter’s spectacular Los Angeles home. Designed by mid-century architect Gregory Ain, the fashion maven and her husband Jed (an interior designer at Commune) injected the minimal interior with warmth and style. From the kitchen’s waterfall countertop to the playroom’s Beni Ourain rug, I’d happily move right in. Read more about Jessica’s killer design aesthetic, here.

I love an advertising campaign that has a sense of realness to it — an authenticity that feels like home. This shot from Jack Spade’s fall 2014 campaign drew me in for just that reason. The Moroccan rug, the mohair sofa, his cashmere sweater, her wool socks…all that’s missing is a snoring pug, but then, one can’t expect perfection.
