It was Bevin Butler’s persistent need for sophisticated, yet stylish, suits that inspired her to leave her career as a lawyer to be become a full fledged designer. Her debut collection for Cade is all about tailored separates that are not only work appropriate but also relaxed and modern. 9 to 5 just got little chicer!
I haven’t stopping thinking about illustrator and textile artist Elizabeth Pawle‘s wall hangings since I first came across her work on Instagram a few weeks ago. Her most recent endeavor, titled Scatterings, is a series of rectangular hessian pieces that have been hand embroidered, stitched and woven using wool, cotton, silk and acrylic. The brightly colored doodles and three dimensional textures nearly dance off the neutral background, creating a feast for the eyes. Needless to say, I’m dying to own one.
I have Catbird to thank for inspiring my burgeoning devotion to delicate, precious jewelry. Nearly five years ago, I was introduced to the Brooklyn based boutique’s collection of stackable, barely there rings and these days, I’m obsessing over their beautifully curated selection of dainty earrings. I recently had the opportunity to style some of my favorite pieces – I had so much fun playing around with a combination of single studs, climbers, cuffs and mini hoops, that I went and added a third piercing, in one ear, a couple of days later. I wish I had done just one more. Ok, maybe two more. If you love these beauties as much as I do, Catbird is offering our readers a 15% discount for 3 days only.

All of the wonderfully eclectic details, that make up Lázaro Rosa-Violán‘s home in Barcelona, are to die for. Though the 4,000-square-foot, Art Nouveau style home was rather neglected when it was purchased by the interior designer, it was filled with an insane amount of original details like stained glass windows, intricately tiled floors, carved oak panels and ornate ceiling moldings. And I just love that Lázaro layered on the design with furniture of a wide range of styles and periods.
