A Little Bit of This

When summer comes around I feel the sudden need to edit my surroundings. From dishes to dish soap, I switch out the warmer tones to those that are more seasonally upbeat.  My faux fur blanket becomes an oversized turkish towel, and bright colors become more prominently placed.

I’m going to keep it simple today, it is Friday after all. Here are a few old and new summertime housewares, accessories, and links I am loving at the moment.

C. Wonder coral melamine plates in nautical blue. Perfect for by the pool.

JA Pop Rock Glass white

I just purchased these Jonathan Adler Pop Rock glasses in white. They can be used for a summer dinner party or chic dinner on the patio.

JA Pop Rock Glass orange

JA Pop Rock Glass Turquoise

How fun and fabulous are the orange and turquoise shades!?!

cucina orange dish soap

Normally I use the classic Cucina dish soap, but during the summer I love to switch to the blood orange scent. Makes washing a dish a little more pleasant!

Molton Brown Eucalyptus Body Wash

This body wash by Molton Brown is not the typical Eucalyptus scent that comes to mind. It makes your shower smell like an upscale spa, and helps waking up a little more enjoyable.

Crema Per Le Mani Santa Maria Novella

Speaking of spa, this creme by Santa Maria Novella is a spa for your hands. Non-greasy and smooth as summer silk.

Brigg's Freeman Home

Brigg's Freeman Home Part 2


Wilson Fuqua is designing this Dallas home that is currently pending. All of his work is incredible! I have several pictures of his homes on my instagram and didn’t even know it was him! New favorite find.



OKL Mayville Cofee Tables

I adore this coffee and side table currently featured on One Kings Lane. From modern to classic, they can find a home in any house!

wisteria large basket

I recently purchased this Iron Mesh Basket from Wisteria (it is on crazy sale!). My woven basket that held my blankets was used a chew toy by my pug puppy, so I had to think fast. Luckily, iron is not as easy to destroy and this looks great next to the sofa!

Mark D SIkes puppy HRH Lily in Veranda

In the August issue of Veranda, Mark D. Sikes‘ perfect home is featured (I literally mean perfect- there is not one thing to change). They also have an interview with his adorable frenchie, HRH Lily. How cute is she lounging by the potted boxwoods? Follow the princess pup on instagram @hrhlily.

Also, I wonder if Lily and Emmie would be friends? ; )Emmie

Emmie and I wish you a wonderful weekend!
