It’s been a strange winter hasn’t it? I think this year people are more excited for spring than ever and that goes for me too. I’m so ready for a spring refresh. March has brought us some nice weather around here and we’re seeing trees full of blossoms and daffodils popping up everywhere. This morning we had some much needed rain showers and I’m taking the day to cook a cozy Sunday dinner, catch up on some if my favorite shelter magazines and blogs, clean the house and generally just take my mind off the news. Does anyone else feel like they’re becoming a complete germaphobe? I don’t blame you! Read below for some favorites for March and let’s hope this month ushers in some better news.
Let’s start with wicker sconces.
I just spotted some cute wicker light fixtures on The Identite Collective’s blog, who said they spotted them on Emily Henderson’s recent blog round-up of wicker + rattan. And, I was literally just looking at some similar sconces for an upcoming project so I was happy to find some options in a range of prices. See how that happens? Now I’m obsessed too.

I’m a little bit obsessed with bedding. My linen closet is literally packed full of options because it’s an easy way to update our room with seasonal changes or even just when I’m in the mood for something different. Sometimes it’s as easy as swapping out the pillows and sometimes a duvet can completely change the whole look. I’m in love with this Logan duvet from Pom Pom at Home. I have it in navy. It’s 100% linen and I love the soft frayed edges and subtle stripe. It adds a pretty, organic coastal feel to our room.

On a recent excursion in San Francisco with my daughter, we ran into Marine Layer and I picked up this pretty wrap jacket. It was windy and chilly and I wasn’t prepared. I fell in love with this lofty, plush, cozy jacket in the prettiest shade of baked clay.
This vintage French glazed stoneware confit pot is full of rustic charm. I love mixing in a bit of vintage in my interiors for a warm and collected look. This would do the trick!
If you follow me on social media, you know I had a great trip to Austin last month for a designer retreat called Design Camp. We stayed at The Way Back Cottages, a Texas hill country, casual boutique hotel. The staff were amazing and super friendly, the food was outstanding and the cottages are appointed in a rustic-chic vibe that I just couldn’t get enough of. This was my cottage below and a fun photo of our amazing designing-women group. If you’re looking for a little spring getaway this would be a great spot!
My last must-have for the month is spring flowers. I snipped these pretty blossoms off a tree in our yard. They smell as amazing as they look.
