the dining room of sarah and austin harrelson, as featured here.

We've been working on several residential projects, and we're nearing the finish line of the most charming dining room inspired by this fabulous green space above. We loved the light fixture so much we found similar lighting here, here, and here.

1. We crush over everything Clare V. releases, and it's the perfect time to score some fantastic pieces since they are having an additional 25% off sale! We are obsessed with this, this, and this – and may have already added these to our cart (who can resist Annie Costello at such a steal?!). 

2. Our favorite weekend accessory? Statement earrings! We can't get over how much personality they can add to any outfit (even our weekday uniform!) and have found some SUPER affordable pairs from ASOS – check this pair out, and these too!

3. While we always update our art favorites, when we noticed this cutie on Etsy we couldn't help but share! We think it would be so adorable in an entry, powder bath, or even in your home office.   While looking for art for a client, we also came across this and this! So perfect!

4. We'll admit, we are wallpaper obsessed. (Take a peek at our favorites here!) So when we found out Gucci released wallpaper (MAJOR!) we had to share. We're already thinking about how we can use this gorgeous heron wallpaper in our clients homes' (or ours – shh!), and am coveting this perfect clutch!

5. Each room deserves that "wow" moment – and how chic is this rattan elephant side table. It is super fun and is such a great conversation piece – all at a fantastic price point (40% off)! View more of our rattan favorites here.

6. Valentine's Day always sneaks up on us, and this year we've found some adorable gifts. Parker Thatch has the sweetest bag, and most adorable striped tee that are both cute as can be! Another personalization go-to, Mark & Graham, has the best gift for the "hard-to-buy-for" guy in your life! Plan on staying for Valentine's Day? Sleepy Jones is a favorite of the guys' in our life (this and this is Benjamin's pick)! 

7. Patterned dresses make us so happy, and we think that this, this, and this might need to be on our radar for our next event.

8. Always a necessity in our office, home, and even for photoshoots, are beautiful books. We can never have too many, and are constantly finding new ways to be inspired. We just bought this, this, and this! Need a coffee table to display your finds? We think this would perfect!

9. The New Year means NEW ARRIVALS! Tory Burch has so many fantastic new pieces and we've already filled up our wish list. These colorful shoes paired with this smocked dress is the most adorable combo!

10. We are totally loving this new silk scarf we discovered – it adds the perfect pop of color to any bag! We are major supporters of their mission to bring aid to young girls in La Croix, Haiti. Even more special, each scarf features a piece of artwork completed by girls this product benefits. We are obsessed!

snow day finds!

It's a snow day here in Nashville, and we've been spent the morning rounding up some of our favorite finds! There are so many great new spring releases and so many AMAZING end of season clearance sales! I think my favorite deal of the week are these classic sunglasses from J. Crew marked down to $28! It's time to stock up on these cuties (Made in Italy), too! We love their classic silhouette and the quality is outstanding – we own several different styles! Don't miss the rest of this incredible SALE at J.Crew – all mark downs are an additional 50%. And just how darling are these linens from Pottery Barn?! We can't resist stripes, and the ruffle and button details are just so charming! Plus, we're still loving the 700+ new styles Serena and Lily just released! We have our eyes on this and this. Take a look below for more of our snow day finds!

Happy Tuesday and stay warm, y'all!

1. It's official, we're all major fans of the incredibly chic Irene Chen of Parker Thatch and are currently coveting everything she wears like this ridiculously cute tote!

2. I don't know about you, but this winter weather has us dreaming of packing our bags (we especially love thisthis and this) and hopping in a beautiful vintage red Mercedes straight for the coast!  We've rounded up some of our essential "getaway" favorites here!

3. We're always on the hunt for the ultimate red lipstick and currently – we're loving the combination of this orangey hue applied first then layered on with this red liner for the perfect depth and color!  We also can't wait to try this one!

4. We are seriously crushing on all things red and are especially loving the feminine layers on this beautiful dress, the bamboo details on this bag, the studs on this amazing bracelet and how great are these little red pumps paired with our favorite jeans!?

5. In our minds, you can never go wrong with a classic striped shirt and we love it paired with a pretty hair bow like this.

6. It's no surprise that we're obsessed with all things rattan. We recently shared some of our favorites from Serena & Lily hereand just came across this little bag which has moved to the top of our wish list!

7. J.Crew is having a major and we mean MAJOR sale right now!  It's the perfect time to snatch up this cashmere sweater and these classic sunglasses!

8. We've always got our eyes peeled for beautiful rugs and just came across this beauty that we can't wait to find the perfect project for. We've also recently added more of our favorites here.

9. There is no denying it, we're crazy about wallpaper!  We just stumbled upon this adorable print and we can't wait to use it on our next project!  We've also had lots of questions lately about the powder room wallpaper featured in Southern Living. It's called Citrus Garden by our friends at Schumacher and you can find it here!

10. We've been asked a few times lately about our favorite blue and white pottery – so, we've updated and shared more of our top picks here!  We're thinking about buying this and this!

it's all in the mix: masculine vs. feminine

If you are anything like us, you're rushing to get out the door in the morning and don't want to have to think too hard about what to wear! So this winter we've come up with a super simple "mix and match" uniform which revolves around 3 staple pieces! A great wrap coat – we are in love with this comfy and chic wrap style which is on super mark down! We LOVED it so much that we purchased it in 3 colors (Note: we actually wrap ours like a robe and tie in a knot at the waist)! And of course, you'll need a great pair of jeans – we're sporting a straight leg with a slightly higher rise this season (loving these that are cropped, too!) and sometimes even a raw edge hem. The third piece to our winter uniform? We can't get enough of a classic spectator shoe. We've had this pair on repeat! But recently added these cuties to our collection too! Have a color crush like us? Shop this pair and these! We hope this makes getting dressed during the cold weather a little easier! We would love to hear more of your wardrobe questions and remember you can catch our daily fashion favorites here on Instagram or shop more of them here!
