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… //

Jenna Lyons in Le Figaro Madame

The first J.Crew opened in Paris today (12 Rue Malher) and the company darling, Jenna Lyons, has been getting some serious French press. These shots from Le Figaro Madame have both top-notch fashion and enviable decor. I’m thinking my new place needs a similar console setup complete with peonies and an abstract.
