A long, lazy weekend

Via Pinterest.

Here in the States, we're kicking off summer's last weekend. It's the Labor Day holiday, and I'm wishing you each a sunny spot as beautiful as this.

My fave 5 from the House of Bougie

 Meadowscape tables, $998.
Folkloric McWhimsington, and I fully embrace them.

Anthropologie, the sugar-spun home of twee, twinkles and fairy cake sprinkles, has released its fall home collection. As usual, it's all over the place stylistically - French country, MCM, Victoriana, Boho hippie trustafarian. But where it really shines is with its out-there pieces, many produced expressly for Anthro.

Painted Quadrant candelabra, $598.
I have no idea why it's so expensive, but then that's my internal
response after reading 9 out of 10 Anthro price tags. 

Harvest Foliage dinnerware, $14-$24.
Like most patterned Anthro pottery these days, this is a decal.

Handcarved Fretwork dining table, $3098.
Priced like a white person carved it, even though we all know 
that's not true.

Persica mirrored screen, $1898.

A mash-up of Victorian sensibility, Arts and Crafts earnestness, and 
Deco curves, this foxed fox somehow wins me over.

J.Crew's Jenna Lyons' inspiration


Today, the Coveteur visits J.Crew Creative Director Jenna Lyons' office. She's been lying low since the company's recent financial implosion, but it's hard to keep a good woman down. Let's take a peek at what's inspiring the queen of high/low (and we're going to forgive the color-coding of her library)...
