  • SUN ROOM REVEAL

    Home Décor is an easy way to transform a space.  Typically swapping out Home Décor is a much more affordable way to reenergize a room from season to season without an entire re-design. Last month I was fortunate enough to begin working with Natalie Gravois of Guac My Life.  Natalie is a successful Entrepreneur, Blogger, Model and Mom of Three. She is on the go, to say the least!

    She and her husband, Ryan, a Pre-Med Student, wanted a casual, budget-friendly room where their kids could play, but was still a good addition to the look and feel of their open-floor-plan main floor.  Their taste is updated with a Mid-Century Vibe, and I think we accomplished this with our Room Transformation. Check out the results below along with where you can get the products!

  • How to Host a Casual Get-together

    Hosting a casual gathering at a moment's notice can be easy when you have the right serving pieces on hand. Great serveware can make delicious recipes look even more delicious and put together. (it also makes an excellent hostess gift!) So use it as a reason to celebrate any time. 

    If you are like my family you have a love for all things Mexican Food. Give me an Avocado and a tortilla chip and you’ve made a friend for life.  February has National Margarita Day in it and what better excuse to entertain and pull out your favorite serveware? 

    Uber talented Blogger, Stylist and Floral Designer, Christina Brockman of Huckleberry Collective has created two delicious and gorgeous recipes in celebration of this day. If you haven't already, you must check out her site. I’m excited to share them below featured with our Chaval Serving Trays and Argenta Salad Servers.

  • Copper + Kiln's 2017 Holiday Gift Guide

    ‘Tis the season for holiday gift guides, and Copper + Kiln is no different. This year we want you to forget the stress of fighting the mall crowds and insane traffic and curl up on your sofa to get your holiday shopping complete. We’ve compiled a budget friendly list with gifts under $40.00. Think Hostess gifts, maybe a trinket for the kids’ teachers or even a treat for the neighbors. Just a little something to let that someone special know you’re thinking of them this holiday season. We’ve chosen our Top 10 below for our holiday gift guide, but there are plenty more under $40 items to choose from on the site.

    Happy Shopping!

     Holiday Gift Guide UNDER $4O

    1. Ty Park Hobnob Ceramic Candle: $24.00. We are major fans of this handmade candle line hailing from the state of Georgia. These are available in 3 incredible scents.
    1. Field and Fleur Fragrance Mist: $22.00. Cut Grass is literally in every room in our home.  We love this product because it’s made in the USA and the company is family owned. They make every effort to use local and natural ingredients in each item.
    1. Roost Aragon Marble Serve Board: $36.00. Roost, one of our all-time favorite décor resources, has an organic look with a modern twist. 
    1. Roost Medium Sea Urchin Vase: At $14.00. This delicate hand blown vase is a great gift. (We also have a Tall version for $16)

    2. Field and Fleur Two Wick Glass Candle: $38.00. We love this candle because the burn time has over 85 hours. 
    1. Murchison-Hume Mediterranean Fig Candle: $34.00. This is by far one of our most favorite scents. These are hand poured in LA and 100% natural.  In case you didn’t notice, we love supporting local businesses that also strive to source natural ingredients.
    1. Imax Set of 3 Angled Ceramic Vases: At $34.00. This is another really good buy. These are super cute, mini ceramic bottle vases with an angled bottom.  They come in 4 different very soft colors. Put a fresh bloom in each one for an added touch.

    2. Tag Waffle Weave Dishtowel: $6.95. This is a super Hostess gift paired with something like a fabulous bar of soap or hand balm.  If you are an uber-rock star you can also bake a yummy loaf of bread and use the towel as a special “wrap” tied with gorgeous wire ribbon for an extra thoughtful gift.

    3. Field and Fleur Two Wick Candle: $35.00. Yes, we have a candle obsession and we aren’t proud! This handwoven vessel makes this extra special and this candle comes in the same delicious scents as the other Field and Fleur items on the site.

    4. Roost Brass Edged Marble Coasters: $38.00. These are just simply gorgeous- charcoal gray marble with a thin band of satin-finished brass. This set of 4 is the perfect gift for someone who loves to entertain.
