New York Market & A Kitchen Update

Hello! I'm sorry for the radio silence.. Erin (from Isabella) and I went to New York this past weekend for market and found some really great things and inspiration for the store.

This picture is of a light filled room in the store Ochre. I LOVED this store, and I especially loved this room!
Another store we both love is Calypso Home. We were inspired by this white and metallic bed we saw there!
We LOVED Tulu Textiles and created a bed with some of their pieces.. I can't wait to put it all together!
We also found a ton of great pillows for the shop in great fall colors.
In other news, we hit a little hiccup with our kitchen.. I posted about it on Instagram last week. The tile I had ordered came in looking COMPLETELY different!

I had to do a side by side comparison.. the tile on the left is a picture I took of the sample, and the tile on the right is what came in. It had a ton of strange bluish specs in it ?
 So, we have been living with this while we tried to figure out what to do....
To move things along, I decided to go with my other tile choice.. a basic neutral from Home Depot. It's pictured below (on the left). The tile on the right in the picture below was what we had ordered and came in pretty different.
I know there's not much to get excited about with basic neutral budget friendly ceramic.. but I promised I would share the process with you :) So that's where we're at right now! If everything goes as planned, we'll get the tile in on Friday and then the countertops are coming in next week!!


  1. I would go with the larger blue, the other looks pink.

    1. The lighting is horrible in the picture... it's totally neutral in person! :)

  2. love all the beautiful textiles.

  3. On my screen the one you wound up choosing looks just like the one that they delivered (but wasn't what you were expecting). This is what makes shopping online so hard I guess. Stuff looks so different on different computer screens!

  4. I like the second choice. I think it works well with the colour of the carpet!

  5. It will be beautiful whatever you choose. I always like what you do. I know that was a disappointment. Been there done that!


THANK YOU for taking the time to share your thoughts. I appreciate each and every comment.
