a quick valentine’s day post to let you all know that mcgee & co is about to kick off an awesome sale! in case you’ve been living under a rock, mcgee & co is the homewares and lifestyle shop started by uber talented design duo studio mcgee. and if you haven’t heard of studio mcgee, shame on you. kidding. sort of. but you’ve probably seen their work floating around instagram and pinterest and didn’t even realize it.

starting tomorrow and running through february 23, the more you buy, the more you’ll save. spend $150 or more, get 15% off. $500+ get 20% off. $1000+ get 25% off. i’ve got a couple mcgee & co items in the house already and am eying a few more. below are some of my favorites but really i’ve bookmarked at least half the site over the past several months. everything is well made and nothing is overly trendy. in other words, almost everything they offer can truly stand the test of time.


one / i’ve considered this side table for our living room. and still haven’t ruled it out!

two / i have these rattan baskets scattered all around the house. they’re a chic, affordable + natural way to corral all the random items lying around.

three / oh fallon cabinet, how i love thee…

four / the color of this chair is just too good.

five / a subdued way to incorporate florals.

six / i’m considering using the extra large version as a DIY pendant light. will keep you posted…

seven / this bistro double sconce could work in a variety of design schemes.

eight / the matteo sideboard would work in a living room or dining room for extra storage and display.

nine / mcgee & co teamed up with vermont’s farmhouse pottery for an exclusive collection and I WANT EVERY PIECE.

ten / look for this pillow in our living room sometime soon…

eleven / a little bit traditional but also feels contemporary.

twelve / maybe someday we’ll move to a house that has ceilings higher than 7’ in the bedroom…

thirteen / another farmhouse pottery collab, these beechwood bowls can serve multiple purposes.

fourteen / a tripod side table in the perfect shade of teak.

fifteen / a pop of muted color.

sixteen / this light wood hourglass table has my heart.

seventeen / a pendant inspired by french country design.

and here is the fine print about the sale.

15% off of orders of $150 or more, 20% off of $500 or more, 25% off of $1000 or more. shipping not included in total cart amount. discount excludes gift certificates. not applicable to previous purchases. only one promo code per purchase; not combinable with any other offers or your to the trade discount. shipping and handling charges still apply. offer ends at 11:59 pm (PT) on 2/24/19. sale quantities are limited, and all sales are final on items with a price ending $.99. discount automatically applied to qualifying carts with codes 'SAVE15', 'SAVE20', and 'SAVE25'."

happy shopping!


urban outfitters home spring preview by emily starr alfano


urban outfitters has become a go-to for affordable and often trendy home goods, joining the likes of h&m home, target, zara home etc. i have a couple things in the house including the curtains in max’s room and recently used this adorable side table in a client’s nursery. last week i was on the lookout for another post i’m working on and noticed some pieces they’re previewing for spring. sooooo good!


one / THIS. BED. I. DIE. if we hadn’t just gotten a new bed frame {which incidentally we do love}, i would get this in a heartbeat.

two / this armoire is so chic and has space for hanging and displaying items.

three / stools are super versatile. i keep a few around the house.

four / before i looked at the description for this chair, the words utilitarian and chic came to mind {spoiler, this is in the description}.

five / a multi-purpose mirror slash ladder.

six / there’s nothing particularly “special” about this dresser but i love the streamlined design.

seven / a modern yet classic platform bed.

eight / how good are those metal pulls?!

all seem to be available for shipping at the end of february / early march.
