Good Gracious: Acacia Cake Stand

good_gracious_acacia_cake_stand

Being a good and gracious hostess can mean many things, but for me it means you never forget dessert! Breaking bread is so much more enjoyable with a good cup of coffee and a tasty morsel at the end of the day. Present your fresh pastries on a cake stand like this pretty Acacia Cake Stand by Magnolia Market. The attractive grain of Acacia wood is softened with subtle smooth turnings. Dig in.

Woman Cave: Art Bar

woman_cave_art_bar

A woman needs her space, so ladies now is the time to convert your backyard shed into your own personal getaway! As a painter myself I would encourage you to get back to your creative roots. Place a painting easel in the corner with a comfy stool like the Camira Blue Wool Stool for hours of painting. Sip peppermint tea or cool lemonade from these sumptuous glasses and enjoy the sweet smell of fresh peonies. Of course a pretty chaise would be necessary for relaxing moments to refresh your inner artist.  Essentials would include jars of paint brushes ready at your fingertips and a bar cart to wheel outdoors to a stone patio to paint “en plein air”.

For unique finds like these, visit the Charish website which is devoted to impeccably curated vintage pieces. Check out their current bar stool collection to find the one that will suit your woman cave.

Rochdale Cabinet Hardware

rochdale_graphite_hardware

The utterly handsome Rochdale cabinet hardware collection has become my go-to choice for cabinet hardware because they are so versatile! It is not hard to see why; the riveting has an industrial appeal that is huge right now, the style is not fussy and has a very nice generous feel when you use them to open a door or drawer, and the colour is perfect. This image shows them in their graphite finish which is akin to a dull iron, it is not a solid black but has a slight grey undertone.

When considering to freshen up a room, an easy but oft forgotten accessory is cabinet hardware. Much like changing your earrings to pull a look together, these baubles can add so much. Consider the starburst pull by Pulp Home. They would be darling on a feature side table, vanity cabinet, or any key piece you would only need two to four maximum.
