Happy Friday! It is starting to set in that our baby girl will be here in less than ten days. I know my whole life is about to be turned upside down- but in the best way! That being said, I am going to miss stopping into my store, Paloma & Co, every day while I am on maternity leave. When things get hectic on the design side of the business, the storefront always seems to provide a breath of fresh air and escape from the chaos. I love to peruse the shelves and admire all the new arrivals that we so carefully selected. During my last few days in the office, I have been admiring a few particular pieces in the store. There are so many amazing things right now, that I am going to focus on finds from the store for this week’s Friday Five!
ONE: This stunning work by Hillary Howorth is one of my favorite pieces of art in the shop right now. Her mastery of shapes and soothing colors results in art that evokes a sense serenity. I find myself pausing and admiring Hillary’s work every time it arrives in the store- the sign of truly impactful art!
TWO: I am swooning over this Louis XVI style ebonized mahogany marble top commode in the manner of Maison Jansen. While not antique, it dates back to 1940. I frequently use ebonized commodes and dressers in my projects because they make a statement while maintaining that timeless feel.
THREE: Summer is here meaning its time for al fresco dinners and cocktail hours. There is nothing that elevates a summer night like candlelight. This beautiful brass hurricane shields your candles from the evening breeze.
FOUR: Nicola Bathie is a Texas based jewelry designer. Her jewelry is the perfect combination of timeless and unique. I already have the perfect outfit for these earrings planned in my head: this floral dress and these leather sandals.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
