October Moodboard

After a month of constant travel celebrating the launch of Travel Home I’m excited to enjoy time at home with family. October felt as though I blinked and came and went. I wanted to share a little moodboard that’s been inspiring me this month.

October is one of the those months where I’m expecting a transition but every year it ends up feeling more like summer. San Francisco gets warm weather, we extend our summer wardrobe reluctantly and crave for the fall crispness to fill the air. I’m excited for the new season to arrive and for us start having those cozy moments at home where the days are shorter. Is that weird? Maybe it’s because I’ve been traveling so much and crave being in my home.

What are y’all looking forward to as a new month approaches us?

On the Bookshelf

I’ve fallen a bit behind on my review of books (too busy getting my own book launched and book tour!) and I didn’t want to leave out these two amazing books: Houses/Atelier AM and Terrain: Ideas and Inspiration for Decorating the Home and Garden.

Houses/Atelier AM by the husband-wife team Alexandra and Michael Misczynski, this is a follow-up book to their hugely successful book Interiors: Atelier AM. The interiors featured in the book are all designed by them and they are ones of refined beauty one can only dream of living in. With stunning antiques and priceless art, these homes show us a style everyone should feast their eyes upon. Taking on very few projects a year, each house is both an architectural and landscaped treasure.

In Terrain: Ideas and Inspiration for Decorating the Home and Garden, writer Gary Lehmkuhl takes the reader through the steps to bring your space alive with suggestions on how to bring nature into your home. I had the opportunity of visiting their founding location at an historic nursery in southeast Pennsylvania, and it did not disappoint. I love the earthy approach to decorating that encourages bringing the outdoors in. Now I need to search for a nursery and try to implement some of the great ideas I found in the book!

Fall in Love with Jayson Home

One of the places I often source for my clients’ spaces, is Jayson Home in Chicago. It’s been a tried and true source for many many years. The selection is deep and what I love is that I find pieces for their homes I don’t see everywhere – they are amazing curators. They have a wide variety of both furniture and accessories. And I can say, we usually source all of our table lamps from them (why is lighting sometimes so hard?). I can always count on Jayson Home to have those finishing touches I need to create a beautiful space.

I’m excited to announce that for those of you living in the Chicago area, Jayson Home will be hosting our book signing for Travel Home at their store on Tuesday, October 8th from 5-7pm. It felt like the perfect match since we are already such huge fans of this store.

With the change of season I thought I’d put together a mood board made up of items I’m currently loving from Jayson Home – there is no better time to switch out some items than a new season.

Tanjia Spoons
Beldi Footed Plates
Aline Wing Chair in White
Cotswold Solid Bedding
Linker Tables (LOVE THESE)
African Basket
Alban Bar Stool
Clara Sofa

I hope this brings you some inspiration to you and your home. And remember we will be in Chicago at Jayson Home on 10/8 and be sure to check out all our Travel Home book tour dates HERE. We look forward to meeting you!
