Summer: A Mixtape (+ Art Print) by Elise Joseph

Welcome to the first official day of summer! I figured it was a fitting time to release the season's new mixtape. This one is perfect for those hot, laid-back kind of days. You can listen to last year's monthly mixtapes here.

The special covers were designed by my friend Julia Kostreva, who developed various collages and filtered them down to isolate a specific idea for each season. It is also available as a print—they look awesome framed and hung on the wall!

Domino Magazine Feature by Elise Joseph

I'm over the moon to share these images with you—Domino Magazine has featured over 8 pages of photos and interview from our home in their Summer issue, which is also available to view online. I have been obsessed with the magazine for as long as I can remember, and was thrilled to open up the issue and see this! My friend Laure Joliet flew out from Los Angeles to shoot, which was an amazing honor as I am a huge fan of her and her work. I loved getting to brag about my talented friends, many who are on display in our home and in my closet.

Giveaway: Cocoon by Sealy by Elise Joseph

Allow me to introduce you to my friend Emily Leonard. She is an amazing artist, wife and mother, and lives in beautiful East Nashville with her little family. Their space is the perfect mix of charming, cozy and eclectic. From the impressive variety of artwork to the fresh handpicked blooms and baskets of plush children’s toys, her home oozes elegance, comfort and accessibility all at once. Her bedroom is no different - I love the rustic wood paneling with the bright white bed. Her own work hangs on the wall and a collection of found shells and rocks sits on the window. Every piece has a story to tell.

I’m so excited to partner with Cocoon by Sealy to offer one lucky reader a brand new mattress! The bedroom is such an important part of a home, and the bed serves as the centerpiece and focal point. My husband and I have been loving our Cocoon by Sealy soft King bed, so I’m thrilled to be able to share this with one of you.
