I have a little mid-summer treat for you - I've restocked many of the most popular items from the summer collection (seagrass carafes, tumblers, throws!) and some all-time favorites (hanging baskets and kitchen brushes!). In addition, I've added some new items that I hunted down for my own home and wanted to share.
When we moved into our house I had a vision of an eclectic mix of white and blue pillows. I thought they's be relatively easy to come by, but after a bit of looking it seemed like I would have to go the custom (very expensive!) route. Almost at the end of my rope, serendipitously, I came across a small company in Massachusetts that create these woodblock print linens with the exact color and patterns I'd been after.
What's more, all of these products are handmade in collaboration with a group of independent artisans, designers, and crafters in India. During production, multiple generations of families work on all steps such as block-making, dyeing, printing and stitching. The goal is to develop a sustainable source of income for these families and ensure that the cultural heritage of hand block printing continues to flourish.
Woodblock Print Pillow Cases, 20" Square Cases $45 each (cases only)
Woodblock Print Napkins, Set of 4, $32
Left to Right : Large Paisley Print, Trellis Print & Petite Flower Print
All of the cases are 20" and require a 20" Square pillow insert. Let me know if you need a resource for the inserts - they are easily found.
I love how they've freshen our hearth room. Blue and white is my favorite color combination; it is so seasonless and classic. I can't wait to incorporate more rusts and muted colors with them for Autumn.
They give the room a very comfy and relaxed feeling - exactly what I want this room to be.
Now, onto the restocks - Seagrass Carafes are back... again! They sold out in just a couple of hours both times I've restocked. So, here we go again : )
And because I didn't even have one left for my own front door, Willow Hanging Baskets!
Kitchen Brush Collection - I'm planning these for several housewarming gift for friends.
My personal favorite tea towel - Window Pane PlaidI have used this Napkin holder (with napkins!) so much this summer - and received so many compliments. This Napkin Box and the rest of the Classic Collection have been restocked.
And, finally, the Unbleached Blue Linens that are perfect for casual summer entertaining.
I have a couple of DIY house projects to share with you in the next couple of days and a new recipe or two. Enjoy restocking!
