WEEKEND AT HOME / 113

i recently switched out a pendant light in my apartment, and it made such a difference that i’m a little bit addicted to swapping them out now! one of my favorite types of lights are mid-century globe lights. there are so many different ways to use them: indoors, outdoors, above a bar, in a commercial space, or as a main statement piece in the entryway. they look great in just about every kind of space! they have such a simple, classic look. which one is your favorite? erika

$1000 ARTICLE FURNITURE GIVEAWAY!

so excited about this BIG furniture giveaway and to show you inside our studio space! i’ve been wanting to finish our office for awhile and haven’t gotten around to it but we finally pulled the trigger and got it done with the help of our friends at Article! and to celebrate, one lucky winner will receive a ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR shopping spree to spend on anything on article! you can get a few chairs, a table, or even a sofa. click through below to enter and to get a coupon code! we’ve been using their furniture for a few years now and they have tons of cool pieces.

now for a little update on our studio cottage! the goal was really to create a cohesive space that flowed together and felt cozy, relaxed and finished. we worked to complete not only the big pieces but the details as well, everything from the plants to candles and to have the furniture and colors all make sense together. our office isn’t traditional by any means (which we love!) so we went with pieces that have more of a relaxed feeling that fits our work place. you can see some of our article furniture in action below! we started the furniture picks with those two rose velvet chairs because they’re so good and they really set the overall vibe of the studio, and we added the geome sideboard, the fuzzy grey sheepskin rug, and the black floor lamp

 

we also created a mood board! i have been collecting pieces of inspiration from all of the world during my travels but most of it just lives in my drawers at home so it’s really fun to finally have a place to display some of it! to create the board we covered a foam core board with white linen (stapled it to the back with a staple gun and then just nailed the board to the wall). the total cost of the project is under $50, foam core, linen (which you can buy by the yard at your local fabric store), staples, nails and pins for hanging. here we can collect inspiration, memories, and document past projects!

LACAUSA

Lacausa | designlovefest

i’ve talked about my love for lacausa here before but i recently did an order from them during their sample sale and was reminded why theirs are the pieces i keep reaching for again and again. they are LA based and committed to ethical and honest manufacturing, which i really appreciate. most of what they make is understated, seems like just a dress or a t-shirt but for some reason their pieces come alive in your wardrobe. i reach for them on repeat and wear them in a million different ways. during the summer months, i like to live in a steady rotation of easy dresses that i can wear day and night and to any and all functions. when shopping in general, the statement dresses are the ones i often gravitate towards buying because they feel fun and exciting but really i should be putting my money into the day dresses that get worn 2 + times a week all summer long and not the dress that i pull out once a year for a wedding (although those are important too!) anyway, i thought i’d share a few favorites that i own and that are my wish list from lacausa just in case you’re looking to spruce up your summer wardrobe. – joanie

 loving the dress, so easy and chic for summer. i love the simple waist tie and that it’s a wrap but not a really tight wrap. i’d swap the shoes for either a pair of converse or a simple summer sandal. $220

i’ve been eyeing these overalls,  i like that the leg is slightly tapered and that the top straps are really thin. they’re super cute layered with a tee and i like them in the classic navy.

gingham is going to be a trend that’ll stick around for awhile and i love this simple top, a gentle scoop neck with the subtle pleating at the sides of the waist. $88

Lacausa | designlovefest

a very pretty printed wrap dress that i’d reach for all summer long. $165

again with the gingham, i actually have this dress in purple and love it. made in organic cotton, it’s super sweet and easy to wear. $176

Lacausa | designlovefest

i’ve mentioned this before but they really do make the best t-shirts, like the one above that’s rayon and cotton which means it’s super soft. and their frank tee is actually perfect. you really will wear it all the time. i even wear mine to bed.

Lacausa | designlovefest

this is my dream dress and i don’t know why more people aren’t making dresses cut on the bias, it’s the most flattering and comfortable thing to wear. and i love that it’s in this 90’s inspired floral print. i’ll take this in both colors, please. $115

Lacausa | designlovefest

i own this in two colors and wear it on it’s own as a dress and also under dresses as a slip. it’s also the perfect thing to wear around the house at night when you want to elevate your sweat pant game. $58

a little feminine touch on this cotton top. $110
