We have a new textile brand in the shop that you’re going to love…and it goes by the name of Walter G. Let’s learn a bit about them!

This Australian-owned and Sydney-based brand was founded by two best friends, Lauren Emerson and Genevieve Hewson.

Lauren and Genevieve spent two years traveling extensively together to places such as India, South America and Vietnam, learning as much as they could about the textiles and techniques of these regions while they were there. They even spent 6 months living in India living in remote villages, immersing themselves in the arts of indigo and block printing. How cool is that?!

They made their debut at Life Instyle in Sydney in 2012, and the rest is history.

The owners describe their brand as “lived-in, imperfect, timeless, relaxed, and artisanal”. They design all of their patterns and develop them right alongside a team of Indian artisans, and all of their textiles are completely hand-blocked, which is so awesome.

They offer fabrics, pillows, and table linens. Take a look at some of the different patterns available!

Pillows:

Fabrics: they offer their different fabrics in canvas, cotton and linen.

Table linens: (absolutely adorable and perfect for a beach house!)tl

 

Their fabrics are very versatile and can be easily mixed in with different styles to create a stylish, casual look, and this is just a glimpse of the patterns they offer!

There’s some pretty great info on their website regarding the indigo and block printing processes that are used to create their products. Definitely worth checking out!

We’re so happy to have Walter G’s beautiful textiles in the shop, and we hope you’ll stop by to see them!

 

Mountain House Ready
Comments Off on Mountain House Ready

The first day of Fall is finally here! We can’t wait for the leaves to start changing, the crisp nights ahead, an abundance of cozy throws, and of course, everything pumpkin. The change of seasons has got us thinking of where we’d most like to spend the cozy Fall days to come, and we couldn’t think of anywhere better than a mountain house. If you’re fortunate enough to have a space in the mountains that you can to retreat to, we’re here to get your mountain house ready for Fall! These schemes and products can obviously be used in your own home to freshen up for the season, too! Let’s take a look.

We love these two schemes that we came up with for a relaxed, yet chic, space. The muted hues and neutrals create an aesthetic that’s fun, but still very comfortable and easy to live in.

Since cooler weather is upon us, it’s definitely time to stock up on comfy throws! We can’t think of a better throw for cool weather than our go-to faux fur throw. They’re luxurious in the way they look & feel! We’re also loving these cable knit throws in our favorite muted hues, too.

To us, Coral & Tusk just screams mountain house! These sweet embroidered pillows on a soft linen are perfect your spot in both the mountains and in your own home to refresh for Fall. The feathers lumbar is a favorite, and how cute is this bison portrait pillow?! We’re also crushing on this Dash & Albert woven wool rug with tassels that’s the perfect way to tie together your space. We have a 3×5 and 2.5×8 runner in stock in the store!

Fall hasn’t really begun for us until we’ve started burning the best candle around: Pumpkin Chai by Nest. It’s absolutely delicious!

This scene in the shop has so many components that would be great in a mountain house- the marbled tray, faux fur throw and mudcloth pillow/throw are great additions for your cozy space!

We hope you enjoy the first days of Fall, and that this gets you in the mood for the season ahead!
