Saturday Stroll: Brimfield

Named for the Massachusetts town that draws crowds of people from around the world for its massive flea market, Brimfield channels a rustic but elegant cabin feel that was an oh so fantastic stop in on an unseasonably crisp and cool August Saturday. Charmingly rustic, and expertly polished were the words to describe this stunning shop....I couldn't have said it better.

Brimfield offers refined Rustic lighting, original art, a large selection of fabrics for upholstery, vintage jars and kitchenware and so many little treats for the eyes. Do not be fooled - this is a true interiors dream and somewhat of a showroom, not too many bargains to be had, but such an experience. I am ready to book my northwoods cabin retreat, complete with a lovely vintage champagne - perfectly Brimfield! Brimfield, located at 5219 N. Clark, Chicago (Andersonville neighborhood)

Rainy Wednesday

Just one of those rainy, rainy summer days- beautiful in it's own right!

Hunkering down today- lots of work... meetings, designing, bill paying (urgh) and welcoming our newest team member- August... to the shipping department. Welcome August!

P.S. No, we don't only hire people with lovely nature inspired names ;)


Falling for Gray & Green

Make that Green Paper Company colors...Ash, Jackpine, Balsam Fir, Spearmint, Aspen. Calming and crisp with still a hint of whimsy. Loving the freshness for late summer into fall!

Hatch Creative- Feathering the Nest

All designers know that feathering the nest of any space is what makes the house a home. We were so smitten with The Nest Event Loft we rented for Monday Morning Mimosas we thought it deserves a special post all it's own...

The space is the work of Barb Saltzman, talented and oh so creative founder of Hatch Creative. Designer of weddings, events and all things lovely- be sure to check out her site!

The space is perfect for most events and can accommodate formal dinners, casual parties, corporate events, trunk shows, photo shoots, and of course, Monday Morning Mimosas!

The eclectic blend of old, new, borrowed, blue, vintage, mid-century, urban and country all blend to create a warm and welcoming space.

Collection of radios- reuse at it's best!

Les oiseaux

The views from every window (and there were lots of them!) had an amazing view, including The Empire State Building. But most of all, we coveted a nearby rooftop garden and penthouse across the street!
Thanks Barb- we can't wait to fly in again sometime soon!

Monday Morning Mimosas (part 2) All the little Details!

We couldn't have asked for more this past Monday in NYC for our Monday Morning Mimosa event during this summer's NYIGF. A gorgeous view from our event space: The Nest at Hatch; a great group of talented fellow vendors: Delphine, Smock, Linnea's Lights, & Russell+Hazel; excited buyers, and (oh, did we mention...) mimosas and macaroons! Such a lovely day!

The bar...outfitted with coordinating ash colored paper straws, mmm themed stir sticks & cocktail napkins, bubble gum, malted milk balls, and lemon drops. Swoon.

Macaroons (lemon, coconut, and almond oh my!) from Paulette.

Goodie bags for a sweet sendoff!


Great Idea: Mixed Glass

For a late summer picnic, we love these (re-used jelly, jam, sauce, and condiment) jars filled with single leaves and flowers. So incredibly simple, lovely and inexpensive! Next time you finish that jar of mustard - take a look at the shape, and see if it's vase worthy or one for the recycle bin.
