i’ve had my eye on the berlin studio hoyss for a while now and recently fell deep into their tumblr feed. it’s full of masculinity, stark whites, rich dark color palettes and clean strong design. there is so much inspiration here, it makes the fact that today is friday that much sweeter.

check their gorgeous feed out right here.

happy weekend friends!



when i ran across the website food52, i stared at my screen for an hour and a half totally captivated by the beauty of their products, their cooking columns, and (don’t even get me started on…) their recipes. it’s a wonderful site to get lost in – loaded with resources, information and some of the best styled shots i’ve seen in a while. their products are unique, innovative and great gifts for foodie friends. if only i had discovered them before christmas! alas, i suggest you check them out immediately – be prepared to swoon.

visit their website here, and their online shop “provisions” right here.

i had a conversation with my soon to be sister-in-law about style over christmas and she said that based on my pinterest boards, she figures that the only thing i’ll ever need in a space to make me happy is mass amounts of white with some good furniture to accompany it. indeed, she’s right. (makes me feel pretty confident that i’m marrying into a family that already knows me so well!) and truthfully, if i could just move right in to the space above, i would.


the mixture of airy white paired with industrial elements brings such a unique life to this space. andy ramus of ar design studio, recognized the potential of this historic stable and rennovated it into a modern three-bedroom house featuring much of the structure’s original barnlike character.

see and read more here on how andy and his studio merged the old with the new and preserved as much of the original stable features as possible.



it’s been a frigid week here in the midwest with windshields nearing -45 below. eek! i’m dreaming of these winter knits to keep me sane today. stay warm friends!

how on earth have six months flown by since i last drafted a post in this space? i’ve thought about this little corner of the internet so often these last couple of months, but all of the ideas, excitement and determination to spend time here somehow trickled away as life happened. 2013 held so many memorable and special moments near and dear to my heart and i am so beyond grateful that i was able to be fully present in each and every one of those moments.

i won’t do a full recap on the year, as i’m chomping at the bit to get things started regularly around these parts, but i do have to say one of my very favorite moments of 2013 was getting engaged to this talented guy. he’s one in a million and our summer spent celebrating with new and old friends quickly turned into late fall, which morphed itself into chilly winter and well, here we are with a whole bunch of new to-do’s and an extremely satisfied glance back at all 2013 held for us.

i ran across the quote above a couple of days ago and it really hit home. for so long i’ve wanted to explore myself as a creative and designer in new ways, finding new territories and pushing myself in new places until i feel i’ve learned and perfected all that i can in this exact moment. i feel thrilled (and honestly, somewhat relieved) to be embarking on a new year of discovery.

so thank you beyond words to all of you who have continued to support me in pursuing my passions this last year, and to all of those who have come to this space while i’ve been away, i can’t wait to follow along on each others journeys as we head into this brand new year!  -jenn

poketo is a wildly fun and vibrant shop located in los angeles, california and is one of my go to stores when buying gifts for other people. founded by husband-and-wife duo ted vadakan and angie myung, poketo was born out of a belief in “art for your everyday.” aiming to be an online destination for design-driven products that takes art off the gallery walls and into the home, the items in their shop are not only fun, but they offer up a unique flair to everyday housewares, accessories, apparel and just about anything you’ll need to bring art into your everyday.

visit their online shop here, and read their incredible story here.

i’m going to fess up right away that the home of melbourne-based designer sarah quin pretty much leaves me speechless. anything and everything that i would ever consider wanting in a home is found right here in these breathtakingly beautiful images. and just when i didn’t think it could get any better, i scrolled right down to that pretty little kitchen and i thought to myself, “now this is how life is supposed to look.”

sarah has a wonderfully inspiring interview about the work that went into creating her perfect home over on the design files. make sure you check it out, in addition to the rest of her beautiful place. and wait, just wait until you see that garden… it’s perfection in the purest form friends.
