fall wish list: home.

L says:

Maybe it’s because I’ve been home for the last few days with a new baby. Or maybe it’s because fall always makes me think of a fresh start with new stuff (new school clothes! new school supplies!). IDK. Whatever it is, I have a bad case of the gimmes. Here’s what I’m craving for my house right now…

The Glitter Life Fall Wish List Home
need all of this.

Ikat Duchess Chair // I’m *real* obsessed with these ikat accent chairs from the obsession-worthy site Society Social. In a perfect world, two of these would flank my entry hall console table.

Sputnik-esque Chandelier //  This light fixture from Lowe’s — LOWE’S — is my everything. It’s under $200 – insane! I have something similar in my dining room now, but it’s not this good.

Gold Etagere // I’ve got the perfect place for – and plenty of objets to fill – this Ballard Designs etagere in my upstairs hallway. I would just use the center, pagoda-topped piece…but you could do all three components if you had the room.

Abstract Art by Britt Bass Turner // I’m a huge fan of Georgia artist Britt Bass Turner. Two of her abstract prints hang in my dining room. If I had unlimited funds, I’d put this gorgeous canvas in my entry hall (right between those two Ikat Duchess Chairs).

Wall Sconce // I can’t stop staring at these bright orange double wall sconces from Candelabra. I just repainted my entire house a pale, pale grey (Benjamin Moore Simple White, actually)…and I can think of like twelve places I could put one (or two) of these.

Linen Cocktail Napkins // J and I can never have enough cocktail napkins (see our other picks here, here and here), and we’re always looking for fresh designs. These sorbet leopard print beauties by Letter Made would be perfection topped with a glass of sauvignon blanc.

One or more of these pretties has a really good chance of winding up on my doorstep before the Vicodin wears off. Stay tuned for our fall fashion cravings!

friday five: fresh.

FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY!

Despite the wretched weather in Georgia, or maybe because of it, we can’t stop thinking about spring. This week’s Friday Five is dedicated to all things fresh.

1. Fresh Produce. Spring means fresh produce! Most farmer’s markets will really kick into gear in a few weeks. Drop by your local farmer’s market and scoop whatever looks best to you. Ask questions if you don’t know how to prepare a certain veggie – most vendors are happy to share a recipe or two. Learn how to master your farmer’s market and how to keep your produce fresh with a few tips from Lauren Conrad.

2. Ice Cream Colors. What better way to welcome spring than with cupcakes made with your new pastel KitchenAid mixer? We love every single thing on this collage by Design*Sponge.

grrrrrrr we want that ikat console SO BAD.

3. EOS Mint Lip Balm. It’s minty. It’s tiny. It’s 95% organic (surely the other 5% won’t hurt us). We’re tossing our bright lipstick and using this natural lip balm this spring.

buy a few: car, desk, handbag etc. ahhhh.

4. Mint Blazers. It’s no secret that we love a classic blazer. This time of year we start thinking about swapping our favorite navy jacket for a pastel version. Mint flatters every hair color and complexion, and it looks equally great with dark denim and white denim.

5. White Denim. Speaking of white denim, now is the time to buy the perfect white jean. The Kaylie Slim & Sexy Bootcut fit by 7 For All Mankind will carry you through spring and summer. We love the curvy fit and the not-too-big boot.

Wait, you didn’t think we’d leave you for the weekend without a cocktail recipe, did you? That wouldn’t be very Glitter of us. In keeping with today’s theme, swap your usual wine for one of these mint-cucumber-vodka cocktails. Fresh!
