1. We spotted these beautiful David Hicks illustrations over on Tory Daily, and are feeling super inspired by this fresh mix of colors. We immediately noticed the stunning royal blue accent chair and couldn't believe it when we saw one so similar on Wisteria! Take a peek at the chair here. Always on the hunt for a great steal, we are so excited to see this stunning blue and white planter that we use in our own home is also on sale – 20% off, and SO gorgeous! We're also crushing on this.

2. Saks Off 5th is such a great resource for fabulous designer finds! We're loving this sweet yellow dress for Spring, and have already added these, these, and these to our cart (oops)!

3. We're beginning to think we'll get all our Spring shopping done this weekend! J. Crew is having 30% off EVERYTHING, and we've already ordered this, this, this, and these. And can you believe how adorable this bag is?

5. Dresses are on our mind we have spotted some of the most darling ones! We're loving this and this. Also on our wardrobe wishlist? This and this!

6. One of the most magical pieces for any room is the finishing touches! Serena & Lily is releasing so many cuties and we're daydreaming about this, this, and this

7. Dreaming up outfits to wear when we're in LA next month, we've picked a few "must-haves" and think we'll land on this, this, this, and pairing it with these and these! Other pieces we're loving? Shop our Fashion, Handbag, and Getaway Favorites here!

8. Have you taken a peek at our Vintage Favorites yet? We've already been adding so many show-stoppers like this, this, and this!

9. Who doesn't love a splurge every now and then? Our sights our set on this, this, and some of the outrageous new pieces from Gucci's decor collection like this!

10. We're obsessed with wovens, and when we found the sweetest bags ALL under $60 – we knew we had to share! We'll be carrying this, this, and this

11. The girls of Neely & Chloe are so talented! We are equally obsessed with their fantastic collection, and are totally going to scoop up this, this, and this (we love a great weekender)! P.S. – Everything is 20% off this weekend for President's Day!

steal of the day!

We were so excited when we opened our e-mail this morning and saw that one of our favorite online resources, One Kings Lane, is having 20% off the ENTIRE site! We thought we would round up some of our current favorites below. While you're at it, don't forget to shop our furniture, art, mirror, and lighting favorites – many of of those are on sale, too! Happy Shopping!

design crush – ashley whittaker!

If you're like us, then getting the newest issue of House Beautiful in the mail is cause for MAJOR celebration! We love seeing new projects from fellow designers–especially ones bursting with pattern and color! House Beautiful's March cover by the wonderfully talented and kind Ashley Whitaker literally took our breath away. So joyful! Ashley, a New York City designer extraordinaire, consistently creates whimsical, show-stopping interiors that strike a perfect balance, and always with a fresh spin on the classics. So of course it is no surprise that we are majorly crushing on her most recent project. See the full story here and follow Ashley on Instagram for a daily dose of pretty.

Happy Monday, y'all! We are so excited to share with you our latest vintage favorites – our newest shoppable category! As you know, we think that no room is complete without a few vintage treasures. We adore the personality it adds to any space, and love when a room feels collected over time. If you're like us, these will become your most cherished pieces!

We know first-hand that hunting for these pieces can be time consuming. Then knowing how to hunt, what to pick, and when something is "worth it" – it can be super overwhelming! That's why we've sorted through a few of our favorite online sites and curated the best picks to make it easy and without the headache. We get so over the moon when we see you loving our favorites like lighting, rugs, and mirrors. So when the questions started rolling in about our vintage favorites, it became a no brainer to add a whole category! We hope you'll find your very own gem, and continue to check back daily as we are constantly updating our categories with "must-haves" just for you!

1. We think the key to creating a happy guest room is the use of color and a mix of patterns – and this charming bedroom is no exception! We got so many questions about the darling sconce that we couldn't wait to share it. Another showstopper? This gorgeous headboard that added so much fun! If you're looking to get your own version of this bedroom, we think adding stunners like this, this, and this will help you add such great style to your own space.
