searching for a new chair

smitten studio chair guideLike I said last week, I am now on the hunt for a new chair to sit along side our new blue sofa. Here’s a round up of some of my favorite upholstered options that are out right now.

The new chair will be heading for that empty spot between the TV console and the chaise side of the sofa (where we used to have the two yellow ones).

gift guide for cabin life

cabin life gift guide

I’m finally getting around to starting my christmas shopping (hey, better late then never!)…  and so I decided that if I am going to do one gift guide, I am going to have to gear it towards life at the cabin. Of course you don’t have to have a cabin to want or gift these items. Although, I wouldn’t mind if each one of them made a nice little home for themselves at ours. :)

I tried to put a little something in there for everyone, so if you are like me and need to get ordering your presents like today… here are the details:

1: French Press from Anthropologie  // 2: Infinity Scarf by Juicy Couture on Piperlime  // 3: Sheesham Ice Bucket from Anthroplogie  // 4: Men’s Leather Belt from J.Crew  // 5: Weekender Bag by Clare Vivier  // 6: Mini Bow Ring from Madewell  // 7: Wooden Amplifier by Koostik from AHAlife  // 8: Passport Holder from Asos  // 9: Table Grill from A+R  // 10: Blanket from West Elm  // 11: Owl Mug from Anthropologie  // 12: Cutting Board from World Market
