Wanted: Snow Day by Elise Joseph

We've had frigid temperatures here in Nashville lately, but today we received several inches of snow, which makes the cold much more bearable to me. I'm welcoming a blustery snow day stuck indoors with our sweet new pup Otto and my cozy winter essentials.

+Rejina Pyo Ribbed Knit Sweater. The perfect two-tone, asymmetric sweater.
+Marrakech Intense by Aesop. My friend Kaela introduced me to this incredible fragrance and I can't get enough.
+Minna Cartographer Pillow. A colorful spot in dreary days.
+Stumptown Hair Bender. My favorite coffee with notes of citrus and dark chocolate—a recent gift from a friend in Portland.
+Back Stripe Crew by Hansel from Basel. Cozy but fun socks, available at Goodwin.
+Peruvian Wool Abrazo Blanket by The Citizenry. A perfectly textured, warm blanket is a must.
+Lip Balm Twin Set by Grown Alchemist. I truly love everything from this brand.
+Niven Morgan Paris Candle. I rotate regularly between this and my shop's Moondance Candle at home.
+The Sun and Her Flowers. A new collection of poetry from Rupi Kaur that I've been wanting to spend time with lately.

The Power Of A Panel by Elise Joseph

Forgive the dramatic post title, but isn't it true that the littlest things can sometimes make the biggest difference? Our house has been in a constant state of flux and construction this year, so some intentional touches (like window treatments) have gone a long way for my sanity. When Barn & Willow reached out offering a few pieces for our new home, I couldn't resist.

Barn & Willow offers gorgeous, custom drapes at one-third of the price you see at other retailers. Their linen is world class, with just the right amount of texture and weight. For our living areas, we went with the soft top style curtain in Natural Belgian flax linen. In our bathroom, I opted for the sleek and sophisticated flat roman shade in Off White. I will eventually add these to our bedrooms as well—they feel so simple yet glamorous.

Home Peek: Rejuvenation by Elise Joseph

IMG_8289.jpg

I am over the moon to finally share a little glimpse into our new home! We purchased the house at the end of February, and have been renovating the 1950 ranch ever since. The first phase of renovations is complete, and we're going to pause and enjoy it before jumping into phases two and three. It's been a bit challenging living amidst a dusty, loud chaotic construction zone for so long—there were a lot of unforeseen delays, but I'm so grateful to have made it to this point. I'm slowly reconnecting with the creative side of myself in our home, and starting to put small personal touches into each room. While the bigger picture isn't quite finished enough to share, I thought I could start with bits and pieces of each room. We'll start in the newly constructed den, with these stunning pieces from Rejuvenation.

Rejuvenation has been a big source of inspiration for me throughout the remodeling process, with their versatile, high-quality collection of everything from lighting to hardware to furniture to home goods (we put these beauties out front). This Brendon Farrell Stand Table Lamp and Ankeny Brass Top Console Table bring so much to the modern space. The hint of brass on the table top, the sleek modular black frame, the linen lampshade and the natural hint of white oak play nicely together and speak to my texture-loving heart.
