Wanted: Smart Finds by Elise Joseph

Smart Furniture is a one stop shop for some of the best home finds, and I can't get enough of their site lately (and they are headquartered just a couple hours away from Nashville!). I'm in the midst of some messy home changes, namely way too much stuff in way too tiny of an apartment. I'm trying to minimize and maximize, letting function ultimately trump appeal. Thankfully, with a company like this, I've been able to have both the looks and the versatility. I'll be partnering with them over the next few months to share some of my favorite pieces, and show you how I've styled them at home. Stay tuned!

Lou & Grey x Pennyweight by Elise Joseph

Lou & Grey is a clothing label that offers chic, comfortable piecesperfect essentials for every day wear. They are an extension of the LOFT family, focusing more on the tomboyish, free-spirited woman. They've also collaborated with some really inspiring ladies, like Ana Kraš and most recently Drake Burnette. I'm excited to share some of my favorite picks from their current collection, captured in the photos above.

I'm wearing the Silk Blouse, Silkwash Culottes, Striped Tee Dress, Knit Zip-Pocket Pants and the Sleeveless Tunic Sweater.

Benjamin Moore x Pennyweight II by Elise Joseph

Earlier this year, I used Benjamin Moore paints in my new home, and fell in love with the quality, coverage and strong color options. It was fun to partner with them again recently to test out the Regal Select Interior Paint line (in a matte finish). I imagine this to be the perfect product for a kitchen or kid's room, as it is extremely durable, resists stains and cleans up easily. In this case, we made over my dear friend's versatile guest bedroom, that also doubles as an office and laundry room.

Chelsea's modern loft home is airy and bright, so it was exciting to work together to bring something more moody and warm to the space. I love a good white wall, but we elevated things by contrasting the home's light walls with this deep Tarrytown Green HC-134. The Regal paint line specifically keeps the busiest rooms looking beautiful, which is important when this functional, small space needs to also serve as a relaxing guest room.
