Fall's Warm Glow!

It's definitely that time of year! The weather turns chilly, leaves brush the sidewalk, and the sun sets around 5 PM! As the night comes faster, we get really excited about how our stores begin to glow with warm lighting and unique lighting fixtures. Take a look at the lights we're turning on this Fall!IMG_0238 copy IMG_0242 copy

 Our Los Angeles Store is teeming with warm, glowing lights! Our tip? Mix and match chandeliers over a space, such as the dining room, for an eclectic, yet rustic, ambience.

Spherical lighting fixtures are such statement pieces! These look great grouped together in odd numbers (think 1,3, or 5) in a space. The shadows they create are unique and create more of an industrial ambience.

Another go-to for interesting shadows is the rectangular Ephesus Lantern! This also lends a hand to industrial ambiences, but is more refined and structural. Pendant lamps are also a great choice! (These are on sale!!) A trio of these would light up a kitchen bar perfectly.

A caged pendant lamp is a great option for any Man Cave. Hanging naked mixed light bulbs on twine and alongside other hanging industrial items creates an innovative source for lighting. We love how creative this option is! IMG_0367 copyIMG_0377 copy

Not all lighting needs to be big, bold, and take up a huge amount of space to be astounding. We adore these glass pendant lamps in our Bed & Bath section at our Los Angeles Store. The texture adds a feminine touch that is illuminate with the flip of a switch! Dainty & feminine chandeliers are also a classic that can draw up a romantic and cozy ambience.

The crystals are so lovely and mesmerizing under the light! Who isn't dazzled by a crystal chandelier? (We want one in every room!) Whether you're searching for a new chandelier, a few pendants, or simple an innovative bulb, we have a great selection at our Los Angeles store! Be sure to stop by and shop our expansive amount of lighting!

DIY: Clay Imprint Dish

The perfect dish for your vanity! Top it with your jewelry, create a place your favorite perfume bottle, or pile on your stray hair accessories. With a bit of air-dry clay and one single circle cutter, you can create this gorgeous, delicate clay imprint dish. Trust us, you’ll love it!

After you’ve gotten all of your tools together, take your clay out of the package and mold it in your hands to soften it up. Remember to close up the rest of the clay tightly when you aren’t using it so it won’t dry up.

We found a flat surface and then laid down wax paper to prevent the clay from sticking to anything. After that, we used a rolling pin to roll it out until our circle cutter could create a complete circle

We then placed our cutter down, removed the excess clay, and voila! We have a circle. You can stop here if you love a minimalistic look and let it dry after shaping it in a bowl, or you can create some extra detail.

We placed our circle over a doily to add a feminine touch and rolled it out once more over the doily to make the imprint. After that we used our circle cutter once more to keep the shape.

Take your clay circle and place it in a bowl so that it dries into the shape of a dish. Let it sit overnight in a dry place and in the morning you have an extremely gorgeous clay imprint dish!

We weren’t kidding when we said it was easy! These small dishes also make the cutest gift when wrapped up with a piece of jewelry. We love these dishes and heavily encourage experimenting with the finishes. A watercolor wash, glaze, or gilded accent would create an amazing finish. Don’t forget to share your projects with us. Happy Crafting!

A Perfect Summer Tablescape

Radiant heat, flourishing succulents, a small breeze, and a vivid palette of colors. The signs of Summer are ripe with a carefree ambience and we couldn't wait for the excuse to take our entertaining outside onto the patio. With our Pantry  stocked with dainty details + cool colors, we knew it was the perfect time to put a new spin on Summer with the perfect tablescape for any summer soiree!

Soft hues in cool colors set the tone for our entire tablescape. Succulents, worn votives, and soft details were a definite must we knew we had to incorporate!

Mix and match cool browns, teals & blues, white, and grey to stay on the cool side of the color wheel. We layered a striped linen between plates and tucked the back underneath the bottom plate for extra appeal. Votives make the cutest containers! Pot succulents and top with white pebbles for extra pop.

These tarnished grey votives were a perfect match. Amazing texture, right?!  We incorporated  these along with a creamy white votive that has a reflective, seashell-like finish. For the larger succulents we added a few larger white accent stones.

Slightly tarnished silverware is the perfect addition. They have just enough wear to be elegant & sophisticated, but also carry a whimsical Summer feel that is a necessary addition for a complete tablescape. Votives are mixed and matched along the table, lovely glassware is added, and you're ready to celebrate Summer!

While we love a bright, vivid palette for summer, we were in love with this calming tablescape that would literally set the table for a sophisticated summer event. Succulents, lovely votives, and captivating colors: what else can we ask for?! We hope you found some inspiration (and find a reason to get outside)!
