I love these hand-printed linen pillows from Hable Construction--such a fun complement for vintage furniture. The "Charcoal Checker" pattern (dots) comes in four sizes here. The "Charcoal Ribbons" pillows can also be ordered in four sizes here. Explore many more patterns and pillows from Hable Construction here.
Note: You can also order custom-sized pillows here.

Oh, and if you've had a stressful week and want to start off your weekend with a little irreverent humor, check out my go-to blog for good laughs: my sister's new blog, The Cluck and Strut. Her musings on life have always been hilarious and I'm so glad she's finally sharing them with the world!

I love period-style hardware. Who knew you could find a covered keyhole (aka "escutcheon") with an acorn motif?! Truly, it's the charming little details in a space that make me smile.
Also pictured: Antiqued brass number and letter, shield escutcheon, Sheraton knob, plate handle with anchor detail, and "h" hinge.

(Fun fact: I discovered these fun containers via one my favorite artists, Geninne Zlatkis, whose work I previously posted about here.)

I've been searching for a boot tray. Sounds like an easy task, doesn't it? Well, we're a big-footed bunch around here so most standard options out there won't fully contain our boots! Also, we don't have a mudroom (just a "spot" for stuff at the back door) so I need something that can easily be moved to another spot. I think I may have found a solution: a seagrass basket from Restoration Hardware (shown above). The basket comes in three sizes, including one just right for our messy rain and work boots! I'll probably add a rubber liner of some sort to protect the bottom and catch dirt/water. Find a similar basket (in a set of three) at Ballard Designs.
I first spotted the basket at Trad Home (below) where it blends style and function as a magazine container (designer: Robert Passal; photo: Patrick Cline).

I love the tub treatment here--and how about that window?! This wonderful bathroom is in the c. 1936 Atlanta home of interior designer Jill Brinson (photos: Simon Upton for House Beautiful). See more here.

I love seeing handmade elements like pottery in any space, and it works so well here as it's juxtaposed with the steel backsplash. Below: A scene from the same kitchen. See more of this kitchen at Emmas Designblogg (photo: Warren Heath for Frank Features).

In December, I was excited to discover the work of artist Marlis Cornett at a local holiday crafts market. I was particularly drawn to her etched glass work, but have since discovered that she works in many other media including calligraphy, graphic design, jewelry making, and painting. Such talent! I love the unique floral motif on her original lamp design (above, bottom). Also above: A beautiful cloche with etched feathers.
Below: Starting with a photograph, Cornett creates a beautiful silhouette of a moment captured at the beach.
You can also find Cornett's work at the Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, North Carolina, and Gramercy Fine Linens in Atlanta.
