Rich and Rustic Collection

Joss and Main is one of my very favorite design sites, and I’ll cover them very very soon, but in the meantime, check out their Rich & Rustic collection. I have a huge weakness for all things rustic, and this hits all my kinks with its industrial lighting, vintage clock, and muted, homespun tones.

“Brimming with warmly weathered finishes, metallic hues, and homespun appeal, this charming collection of accents invites Rich & Rustic style to your home decor. From hammered bronzed table lamps and amber glass votives to eye-catching propellor wall art and bull’s eye picture frames, this lovely array blends industrial-chic silhouettes with country-inspired design to create a whimsically sophisticated vignette in your living room, den, master suite, and beyond.”

Vintage Love

Caffeine Pick: Maptote

Debuting a new series wherein every Friday I highlight a design website I love. Today’s pick is Maptote, a Brooklyn-based company that makes products decorated with maps of both local and exotic places.  These include everything from note cards to bandannas, zip pouches, and of course, custom-made totes.


When a stylist and a cartographer fall in love and get married, what do they make (besides babies)?  In the case of Brooklyn couple Rachel Rheingold and Michael Berick, they create Maptote, a line of products decorated with maps of locales both domestic and exotic.



LA Bandanna, $12



New York tote, $17

French Vintage or Cool Marble?

Tonight’s post oddly enough is about cups.

And a marbled sake cup set from Leif.

You know, the older I get, the less I like marble and stone – my tastes run now more toward wood and brick – but these sake cups are genuinely lovely. Which do you prefer?
