January is a notoriously crazy month for me. Things are busy at work, Kyle’s busy at work. I don’t have time to eat properly or do my Tracy Anderson videos (somehow there is always time for french fries though). My birthday comes up and then I’m in my “late twenties” and lots of freakouts and what-the-hells will inevitably happen. I get a giant pimple during Golden Globes weekend and Jared Leto looks me square in the face. All the fails happen in January.
So one morning, instead of feverishly checking emails, I walked around this little home of mine and took survey of my favorite corners, nooks, and crannies – you know, the clean and organized ones because there’s just no question that dirty socks and opened boxes of chocolates are just outside the frame of these photos (I blame Kyle). So I took survey, because as much as I still think my home is nowhere near “done,” there are still small corners that calm my buzzing mind and make me smile. Here are a few of them:
SOME RESOURCES: Pendleton blanket | UO Butterfly Chair | Ikea Sheepskins | Modernica Plant Stand | Bench via etsy | Makr Plate Hook | Schoolhouse Electric Coat Rack | Modernica Wire Chair | cb2 Dining Table | Ikea Pendant Lamp | Weck Jars | West Elm cutting board and cheese boards | World Market Hanging Fruit Basket | Rifle Paper Co. Calendar
Love everything about this. Home perfection. And ps. Your house is ready for walls so I’m coming ovaaa. Get ready 🙂
let’s do it, jay!
your home is beautiful! and like you said — even for me — very calming. love the pendleton blanket, the fiddle leaf fig and that hanging fruit basket especially.
actually, follow up question — how do you hang the hanging fruit basket? just a simple nail or hook?
thanks for the kind words, Valerie! the best thing to do for the hanging fruit basket is to find a stud so you can nail a hook into wood. that will be the strongest hold. if you don’t have a stud in a particular place you want, there are drywall anchors, etc for hanging things into drywall. i usually just go to the hardware store and tell an employee exactly what i want to do, and they show me all the tools i need. hanging things into the ceiling is hard!!
good to know! thanks Janelle, I’ll definitely ask a hardware store employee as well.
Lovely little corners you have! I love taking a glance at the little pieces in my home. They say so much, but often get lost in the big picture (also, my messiness). Great photos.
SO FREAKING CUTE I CAN’T EVEN, GIRL
THE MOST AMAZING. (P.S. I’m digging 27 so far and I know you will too!)
The print hanging next to the rifle paper company calendar (by the fruit basket) is really lovely! Can you tell me where you found it? You have such a beautiful home! 🙂
Thanks so much! I got it at the Renegade Craft Fair in LA but you can get it from the bendor’s website here: http://thisisya.com/seasonal/ I love it!!
