FRIDAY’S FAVORITE FINDS WITH ‘HOUSE 15143′

Happy Friday, everyone!  I was recently invited as a guest by Table Magazine to attend a release signing cookbook event by wellness coach and author, Lindsey Smith (stay tuned – I’ll be sharing a post on that next week!).  As part of my ‘Friday’s Favorite Finds’ blog post series, I wanted to first share with you a few of my favorite finds from the beautifully curated shop the event was hosted at… House 15143, located in Sewickley, PA.  After living in PA for nearly 10+ years, I have never visited this borough…shameful, isn’t it!  Upon arriving to Sewickley village, I was impressed by the large beautiful homes (that’s the HGTV part of me) and the quaint downtown area filled with restaurants and boutique stores (I felt like I stepped into a Hallmark movie set!)  I can’t wait to return to Sewickley because we went during the evening hours, so it was quite dark outside.

The lovely ladies, Danielle and Kristin are the owners of this stylish, chic and modern shop. I just love, love, love boutique stores that carry home decor, entertaining essentials and unique gifting and House 15143 was just that and more! If you’re looking for graphic art prints – look no further, they have a wide selection of prints to choose from that suit your personality. If you’re in need of something custom, no problem, they have an in-house graphic designer who can design and create it for you. In addition to the unique products they sell, they also offer decorating services and host cooking classes in their in-house kitchen, featuring local chefs and restaurants! If you live in the Pittsburgh or surrounding areas, you can view their upcoming events, here.

Check out below for my favorite finds that I purchased and a glimpse inside House 15143 via a video snippet I created, at the end of this post.

FRIDAY'S FAVORITE FINDS WITH 'HOUSE 15143'

I was pretty obsessed with all the eye candy that surrounded me as I stepped foot into House 15143. The first thing I noticed was the large floor-to-ceiling display of luxury candles.  You guys know how obsessed I am with scented soy candles, so it was no surprise that one of them was going home with me! As you’ve noticed from the pictures above, I snagged a few other items:

  • Candle-Match Bottles.  An apothecary jar with a built-in, strike-on-bottle design that also features a printed message on the bottle. I also  a tall glass bottle with cork top that includes oversized candle matches. Pairing these candle match bottles with your scented candles is a convenient and beautiful way to display on your coffee table.
  • A Luxury Scented Candle.  There was a wide selection of fragrant candles to choose from and ultimately, I went with a Sydney Hale Co. candle. The scent reminds me of summers at the beach which was probably purposeful, since the name of the scent is ‘Sweet Water’! I’m looking forward to lighting this candle after the winter months have passed.
  • Prosecco Cocktails Recipe Book. Since I love to entertain this cocktail recipe book is perfect for when hosting a brunch – after all Prosecco cocktails and brunch go hand-in-hand! I’ll be sure to share recipes with you on the blog so that you can try them at home too!
  • Brass-plated Wine Bar Sign. I haven’t shared this with you yet but I have recently turned our bar cart into wine cart. When I saw this Wine Bar sign, I knew it would be a perfect addition to the bar cart. I’m going to have to think of a creative way of displaying it since it is meant to be screwed into a wall or cabinetry. Stay tuned for this!
  • Tea Towel. With Valentine’s day just around the corner, I was smitten with the tea towel that an illustration of a tree with a red heart hanging from one of the branches.  The message on the tea towel reads: ‘ love grows here’.  I have another tea towel that was gifted with a purchase of Lyndsey’s cookbook. It read
  • Wooden Serving Board.  Ok, you guys, I’ve been searching high and low for a large wooden serving board and I was ecstatic when I saw this one! At-home entertaining just got more fun – look out for an epic charcuterie and cheese board…a future ‘how-to’ blog post! I can’t wait to use this massive woodend display board.
  • Beverage Napkins.  I collect a variety of bev napkins to have readily available for any occasion and I couldn’t resist the black and white stripe ‘Cheers’ ones that I picked up.

Whenever I can, I like to support local shops and I’m happy I found another store I foresee visiting frequently!

Decor & Interiors: KITCHEN GALLERY WALL FEATURING CraftMei HERB PRINTS

Kitchen Gallery Wall Featuring CraftMei Herb Printables

Ever since we repainted our kitchen walls, I’ve contemplated for months and months on what type of framed art I should hang on the wall. It wasn’t until I visited the shop of Chelsea from CraftMei that I knew her herb printable collection would be a perfect design choice. I just adore Chelsea’s work, as you can see from my prayer print and my Christmas print! I simply swoon over her font styles!

Since I had to fill a large kitchen wall, I decided to create a gallery to display six herb printables (dill, chives, basil, parsley, oregano, and cilantro) and inserted each of the prints in an 11″x14″ white double mat frame.  I love the simplicity of the print designs and by choosing white picture frames, it complemented the color scheme of the bistro table, and other kitchen decor accessories.

We are happy with how our little kitchen nook area turned out. Clean. Modern. Simple.

THESE FOUR WALLS: Laura U Interior Design

Happy Thursday! So I wanted to let you know that today will be my last post on my ‘These Four Walls’ series. I hope you have enjoyed the many inspiring interior spaces that I’ve shared from the many talented designers. But not to worry, if you are a fan, I will still feature interior spaces from time to time.

I would like to introduce Houston based interior design firm, Laura U. The first thing I noticed right away when viewing the work of Laura U, is her use of mood-lifting color choices. I like how she tastefully infuses pops of vibrant colors when mixed with a neutral base, so it doesn’t appear distracting. While I love my neutrals, I do believe use of color(s) can enhance and even sometimes transforms a space.

THESE FOUR WALLS: The Cross Design

If there was one interior space I can jump right into, it would be these rooms designed by Vancouver interior design firm, The Cross Design! The monotone furnishings and finishings creates a restful feeling but not without interest and detail.

Humm, I may just have to steal this flower arrangement and vessel idea!

The copious amounts of light streaming through the windows is naturally a nice feature! By the way, you can purchase that LOVE print my Made by Girl. I actually own one myself.  You can see how I styled mine on this post.

A very impressive bathroom! Sleek. Smooth. Polished.

THESE FOUR WALLS: Anne Hepfer

Toronto-based designer, Anne Hepfer caught my attention with her stunning interiors. As a New York native, her expression of high-style is shown through her designs. Take a look…

Who knew incorporating pink in a neutral and brown color palette could look so good!

I can see why Hepfer is known for her luxuriously appointed kitchen and bathrooms. This kitchen is not only jaw-dropping, it’s my dream! Clean, quiet and intriguing. Hepfer brilliantly made good use of light and volume, creating elegant perfection.
