You’ve Got Stye: {Ila, Essentials for A Beautiful Home}

So you all know Sunday Suppers, right? The beyond beautiful Brooklyn based company that is known for throwing the most epic dinner parties. E-P-I-C. You may also know them for their seriously cool cookbook. And if you own it like us, you’re likely lusting after the styling and food ideas that fill the pages while wishing you had a kitchen full of beautiful props to make meals prettier. Well wish no further! With the continued goal of inspiring people to celebrate gatherings with friends and family, Sunday Suppers is on their way to making the most beautiful kitchen goods you’ve EVER ever seen with their new line, Ila. From gorgeously designed olive oil bottles to the best and most unique pantry items like black sea salt from Hawaii, we die over this line of pantry essentials.


For their debut collection, Ila has chosen five varieties of sea salt {because you can never have enough – especially as a stylist!}, spices, wildflower honey, olive oil, and maple syrup – all essentials every cook should have on hand! And right now, you can get your hands on these beautiful kitchen must-haves through Ila’s Kickstarter campaign, so run! We’ve already pledged, obvi – that olive oil is the olive oil of our dreams.

So go on and treat yo pantry to these goodies while supporting their Kickstarter here! Please? Because we don’t know about you, but we want to continue to see more of the absolute dreaminess Ila is throwing down!

We’ve Got A Crush

Similar to the famous R. Kelley song, “our minds are telling us no, but our bodies are telling us yessss.” We’re in that inevitable transition phase when we can’t possibly bear the thought of summer fading, yet yearn for the our favorite season to arrive. Cooler temps and light layers, warm tones and crisp lines, they’re calling our names. Despite our dilemma to make a decision – summer, fall? – we’re truthfully loving inspiration from both seasons. Here’s what we’re crushing on…

We’ve got a crush on marble fireplaces {who doesn’t?} and chairs that are pieces of art!


We’ve got a crush on this creamy grilled potato and cucumber salad {recipe here!}, served in a pink bowl.


We’ve got a crush on ever-y-thing about this kitchen. The wood panel back splash, forest green walls, ceiling mounted swing-arm light fixtures – take your pick.


We’ve got a crush on classic pieces that are perfect for fall.


We’ve got a crush on this moody color palette – it’s time for emerald again!


We’ve got a crush on a clean-lined painted headboard and a monochromatic bedside sconce to match!


Seriously, how cool is that headboard idea and that salad looks SO good. Potatoes in a “salad” are healthy, right? That styled ‘scape has us dreeeeaming up a fall tabletop to work on – stay tuned – and oh, what we’d give to wear a crisp button down shirt right now. We’re terrible. We complain all year for Karl the Fog to go away and now that he finally did, we run for shade.

Looking for more fun inspo? You’ve gotta go here.

9 Gold Pendants To Light Up Your Life

A killer lighting situation can complete the look of a space—it’s like the cherry on top of a sundae…the icing on the cake…the cheese on the pizza? Alas, we digress. What we’re trying to get at is that a good light can define a space and serve to add a little bit more dimension to the feel of a room. Not to mention, extra mood lighting is always welcomed, especially when it comes to enhancing the Instagramability of our meals {#priorities}.

If you’re looking for something more dramatic than a basic ceiling light, but less showy than a chandelier, pendant lights are the way to go. The great thing about them is that they’re super versatile—you can hang them over a elegant dining table or use them to create a cozy reading nook. In our favorite metallic hue these guys offer just the right amount of interest for any decor situation!

It’s hard to go wrong with these pretty pendants—you can go singular and bold or hang multiple smaller options to create the lighting that best fits your needs. Often times, you just need that one glitzy piece to add that touch of glam to a space. We’ve scoured the web and created our own collection of gold pendant light faves!


We love the perforated look of #4. We’ll take two to hang over a long dining table, please! Which would you choose?
