Finds From My Recent Design Jaunts

Lately I've been going on quite a few design jaunts for projects and personal stuff and I've been seeing some awesome spring-summer finds and furniture pieces as well, at local shops.  I discovered Tuesday Morning on Blossom Hill which has the cutest stuff! Everything from bedding to small furniture pieces to accents, I liked their selection and mix of styles.  I also spent a few hours perusing through shops in downtown Menlo Park and made some fantastic finds there too (albeit pricier but a great value). There's lots I wanted to take back with me but had to resist!  Living vicariously through the blog and sharing all with ya'll here!


An octagon beaded mirror - yes please!  A pair of these on either sides of the bed would be a great way to bring in the glam

In LOVE with these counter stools at Tuesday Morning.  The rope fabric and nailhead trim is perfection. I wish I had some place to put 'em! And a bench in the same fabric.



Spring pillows!  Love the metallic one with the squiggly lines, which felt Jonathan Adler-esque to me for some reason.

Great neutral throws - golds, greys and whites



A soft white chevron rug - great as is for some contemporary style, or layered with faux cowhide to warm it up a bit



Beach house accents anyone? :)

Striped patio pillows & natural fiber bags. And shell bouquets that looked STUNNING in person - coastal with a little bit of shimmer and shine!




French country bistro chairs. Also  great for a breakfast nook 



This herringbone cabinet would be perfect for small space storage, I can picture it as a sideboard in a small space dining area.  Top with some simple white vases with leaves and branches and you have a moment!

And some sightings in downtown Menlo Park,

...a grass cloth dresser - which I loved to pieces, and which also cost an arm & a leg!! Needed a little wipe down but it was in great shape otherwise.

... this striped table lamp is everything. It would look amazing in an otherwise traditional room. Statuesque and beautiful.

...a cozy chair and antique table lamp - reading corner essentials!




And lastly, some classic coastal furniture at Pier 1 - this chair was super comfy. And I spotted these cute white end tables - love the carved details!
