Entertaining With :: Poplin & Queen

Hard to believe, I know, but Labor Day is officially upon us. It’s bittersweet: a weekend full of revelry and family time is always a good thing, but kissing summer goodbye sure does sting. So to help soften the blow, we’ve turned to interior designers Lindsey and Shannon of Poplin & Queen. The duo is joining… read more


My Life, Styled :: High-Waisted Denim

They say you can judge the economy by the rise and fall of the current season’s hemlines. If the same is true for waistlines, then I would say things are looking up! I’m not afraid to admit that in high school I owned denim so low that the zipper became some sort of superfluous accessory… read more


How To :: Style the Coffee Table

Happy Monday, folks! We’re kicking off the week with a much needed lesson in styling from one of our favorite interior designers in town, Ann Lowe Edgerton (though you might remember her from this gorgeous entertaining story).

The backpack: not only is it the iconic item at the forefront of back-to-school buzz, but this season, it’s also a must-have accessory for fashion lovers of any age. So even though we may not be counting down to the first day of school around here, we’re still coveting those trendy everyday packs for toting our laptops, workout… read more


An End-of-Summer Family Feast

There’s an unexpected calmness that creeps in this time of year, don’t you think? With the novelty of summer worn off and most of our travels a thing of the past, we’re now channeling our focus back to routine and ritual, and those big summer blowouts are being swapped out for intimate dinners that allow us to catch up with… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Indigo Shibori

Don’t make the mistake of calling it tie-dye — today’s board is inspired by the much more glamorous and way more hip version of everyone’s favorite summer camp activity. Made by twisting, folding and binding fabric, then dying it with natural dye (in this case, gorgeous indigo), the result is a rich pattern that looks… read more


Dream Job :: Art Curator at Wythe Hotel

When we think of “hotel artwork,” most of us can’t help but imagine mass-produced abstract prints in poor color choices, or large-scale, arbitrary stock photography (insert sad face). But at Brooklyn’s Wythe Hotel, that’s not nearly the case; instead, each and every piece of artwork you’ll see has been carefully and intentionally selected to bolster… read more


Field Trip :: Lick Honest Ice Creams

If you’re an Austinite reading this, chances are you’ve already thought to yourself (or maybe exclaimed out loud), “I love that place!” In the three years since it opened, Lick Ice Creams has made a name for itself in town for being unlike any other, and during these dog days of summer we can’t get enough of… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Take a Hike

If today’s inspiration board doesn’t make you itch for a dose of the great outdoors, I don’t know what will.  A friend of mine spontaneously headed out to Rocky Mountain National Park last week, and looking at his photos got me reminiscing about the countless summer hikes and camping trips I took growing up, and… read more

Half the battle is deciding on colors and patterns, and the other half is finding an upholsterer who can do the job right.
