At some point during my recent travels, I popped into the coolest store in Asbury Park, NJ, and purchased the awesome midcentury vase you see here. It’s from a German company called Jasba, and while I can see where some might think the aesthetic quite hideous, I find myself loving it and wanting more.
Here’s a jug with a very similar color combination to above.
J. Crew’s new collaboration with Liberty of London features items for the home—like these nifty napkins, plus also gorgeous bedding, tablecloths, and more—and I do think it will sell out fast. So if you’re at all interested, do not delay.
This home design brand is so far up my alley: I don’t know what you’d call their aesthetic, but it’s kind of a mix between midcentury and rustic farmhouse chic, if you get where I’m coming from. Their stuff isn’t cheap but it is well-made in my experience. I’ve been looking for a new duvet cover for ages, and have turned down many for being not quite right, but I love this striped one beyond reason.
