Gift for the home: I love the lines of these Bruno Mathsson Eva Chairs for my living room. So sleek and well designed, I definitely need a pair of them.

Gift for the soul: Looking forward to a peaceful and rejuvenating vacation in Japan…just need to buy the tickets!

Elisabeth

Gift for the home: This painting knocks my socks off. “Sea Light” by Tommy McDonnell, a 60×48 multimedia piece, has the most unique straight-edge-meets-organic composition. Plus, he apparently does all his work on his beachfront terrace under banana palms. (Available at Gregg Irby Gallery, one of our local faves!)

Gift for the soul: Nothing makes me swoon more than a magnolia in bloom. I’m talking the enormous, evergreen, crazy-shady beasts that make up this land of ours. My homestead lost our century-plus oak tree this year and my hope is that the planting of a magnolia in its place will help with the melancholy of our empty front yard (though it probably won’t bloom for another 10 years).

Gift for the home: The blue coloring of this Kazak rug is unique to these type of rugs, and this one is pretty much a work of art for your floor. To me, it’s not about filling your home with stuff, but collecting beautiful pieces that will last.

Gift for the soul: This beautiful bag not only supports a local Atlanta business but it’s amazing quality! (Plus, I’m in desperate need of a sturdy bag for work that is light, has adjustable straps, and will hold everything from my laptop to my tape measure.) 

Danielle

Gift for the home: I’m in love with the moodiness of the Temple Mirror. The cathedral window shape and antiqued mirror are calling my name in a faint, ethereal whisper.

Gift for the soul: Two things I can’t resist are Scandinavian art and teapots, and this Marimekko teapot is both! I drink tea with breakfast, lunch, and dinner year-round so this little stunner would be well loved.

Melody

Gift for the home: I’ve never seen anything quite like the delMare table. It’s truly a special piece–only 35 will ever be made. This table looks just like the ocean floor and would satisfy my deeply rooted love of the sea, while still living here in the city.

Gift for the soul: My boyfriend and I recently celebrated our 6th anniversary and family and friends have been asking the dreaded holiday question of “when are you getting married?” I’m personally in no rush, but (just saying) if it were to happen this holiday season, this would the perfect ring for me! I love the vintage feel of the band, and the unique rose gold finish. 

Color Obsession: Autumn Explosion

By: Danielle Cornely

Beautiful_Fall_Leaves

Autumn is in full swing and color is everywhere! Let’s take a minute to appreciate the full range of hues this season has to offer. Of course there’s burnt ochres, fiery reds, and rich browns, but there is also a whole palette of gorgeous, less known colors. Chartreuse, aubergine, and cool grey are the supporting cast, and we think it’s time for them to shine.

This mid century, Asian-inspired style in remarkable chartreuse is a show stopper.

Velvet lyre chair

How could you resist curling up with a good book in this tufted chair?

Alexis lamp

Alexis Lamp by Currey and Company.

We strongly believe lamps can be functional and still beautiful. This Alexis lamp is a work of art.

Louisianne bench

Louisiane Bench by Fermob.

This sculptural bench would be right at home in the back of a garden — the perfect place to sit and reflect.

You can’t go wrong with Schumacher fabric. These pillows have it all: color, pattern, and panache.

Color Obsession: Magenta

By: Kate Donnelly

As Maggie Prescott in Funny Face said: “Think Pink! Think Pink! If you want that quel-que chose!” Magenta’s vibrant energy has made it a popular hue in furniture, fashion, and art for centuries. In Victorian times, it was all the rage for the ladies of the French court. Today, we are still as in love with magenta as ever. Here are some ways to incorporate this dynamic color into your world:
