friday favorites


1. We love the New Year for so many reasons! It's a time to reflect, a chance to dress up, and a reason to cheers an exciting 2018! Above we've rounded up images that are keeping us inspired–inspiration that is refined yet playful, fashionable yet approachable, and the ever classic "it's in the mix!"

2. But, what do we get most excited for with a new year? The chance to hit REFRESH! We think it's the perfect opportunity to update the tired pillows on your sofa, freshen up the powder bath with a fabulous new mirror, or add a sophisticated touch of brass!

3. What better time, too, than during after Christmas sales? We're totally loving a mirror like this (and think it would pair so well in our powder room featured here with Schumacher's citrus garden!), this, and a statement like this!

4. Does your bathroom need a towel overhaul? These paired with these make the perfect instant update. We're also loving this duvet (on major sale!) at Serena & Lily if it's your bed that needs the attention!

5. Do you want somewhere to store your pile of "yet to be read" magazines? Pottery Barn has essentials like this and this on major markdown!

6. Another way to make an impact for both everyday and occasion? A fabulous table setting (this cold Nashville weather has us dreaming about our favorite summer tablescape)! We suggest snagging these, these, these, and this!

8. If you're obsessed with lighting like us, we have this in our cart and thinking about using this for a client! How perfect is the pendant in a corridor or mud room? We think the chandelier is a perfect find for a modern breakfast nook! Shop more lighting from West Elm here.

9. And because you know we couldn't resist a mention of glamorous NYE fashion – we are MAJOR crushing on this and this! Looking for something to stay warm? This coat from H&M is so luxe at a total steal!

10. Serena & Lily's Winter Tent Sale has SO many options to refresh your home! We'll be getting this, this, and this!

We would love for you to keep up with us in the New Year by signing up for e-mail updates here
Happy New Years from the whole team at Pencil & Paper Co. – cheers!
