Worthy Links: High Point Market Review

Worthy Links: High Point Market Review — Michael C. Hall's Home on @SavvyHome

I’m back from High Point Market and very excited to be kicking off a new project that is under wraps, but that I can’t wait to share with you all! I ran into a few friends at #HPMKT and most of the conversations went a little like this: “OMG is this your first High Point?? You must be OVERWHELMED!”. One friend’s advice was: “start drinking early, and often”)! While yes, High Point Market is exhausting AND overwhelming (I walked the halls for 3 full days and still only feel like I barely saw 10% of showrooms)—it’s also exhilarating. The inspiration, the connections you make and the talented people you meet all make up for the blistered feet, the back pain that comes from shlepping around hundreds of catalogs & gift bags AND the wardrobe malfunctions (note to self— High Point, NC is a windy place; flowy skirts are NOT a good idea).

After turning 28 last week, I feel excited about the future, especially after my weekend at High Point. I definitely don’t have everything figured out in my personal or professional life, but I’m happy about what I’ve accomplished so far, and I like the direction I’m heading. I could go on and on about the details, but I feel like Molly’s birthday post (who turned 27 six days after me) pretty much sums up where I’m at and how I feel about growing a year older. So here’s to taking it one day at a time.


Serena & Lily is offering 30% off 300+ items! Definitely check out this bedding, this quilt, these barstools, this bar cart, this coffee table (I have the light wood dining table version and I love it), these dip dye stools, this dhurrie rug, this herringbone throw and this double sconce.

J.Crew is offering 25% off full-price styles this weekend with the code TGIFALL. I recently ordered these jeans and this shirt and I’m obsessed. Also on my wishlist is  this sweater, this shirt, these jeans and this coat.


Kiesza launched her new album Sound of a Woman and I’m listening to it on repeat. So. Good.

Michael C. Hall (a.k.a. Dexter)’s house is great, especially this little corner of heaven.

I’m obsessed with these sunglasses and, while we’re at it, these boots too.

In case you’re wondering, this was my most repinned image this week.

One thing that will completely transform the way you cook.

Speaking of cooking, I made this one-pot dish last night.

Bailey’s country house plans are out of this world.

Tour Ellen Pompeo’s Los Angeles estate.

Shantell Martin for Kelly Wearstler.

Ps. Man candy right this way.

3 Home Decor Trend to Take Home from High Point Market

3 Home Decor Trends to take home from High Point Market — New England Nautical on @SavvyHome

I’m back from High Point Market! My brain (and my phone camera) are overflowing with products and inspiration. Here are three home decor trends that you should look out for this year.

3 Home Decor Trends to take home from High Point Market — New England Nautical on @SavvyHome

New England Nautical

To my delight, High Point was filled with nautical nods this year, and I don’t mean the kitch seaside decor (although there was some of that too). Coral and barnacle clusters filled up antique booths, collectors proudly displayed their collection of buoys, demijohns and nautical flags. Lighting was wrapped in rope, encrusted in seashells or topped with grasscloth lampshades. Even furniture was wrapped in grasscloth, rattan, rope, water hyacinth and other natural materials. Rugs and bedding were prominently blue & white or striped (or occasionally plaid) and many pieces of wood furniture were whitewashed. New England based companies like Dunes & Duchess and Oomph gave their colorful preppy twist on the style.

3 Home Decor Trends to take home from High Point Market — Equestrian Americana on @SavvyHome

Equestrian Lodge

Palecek was at the forefront of this Ralph Lauren-esque trend, but they weren’t the only ones. Furniture and accessories across the entire market were wrapped in tan leather and strapped with buckles. Cowhide and navajo prints graced the floors and furniture and mongolian lamb popped up on everything from stools to chairs and pillows. Think updated Colorado ranch.

3 Home Decor Trends to take home from High Point Market — African Safari on @SavvyHome

African Safari

2014 is the year of the antelope: benches, rugs, pillows… I hope the poor animal is not extinct because its skin popped up everywhere across the market. Hides off all kinds were very popular this year in fact, from zebra to tiger. The traditional kuba cloth was also prominent: whether in the form of pillows, upholstered benches or frames. There were lots of safari chairs,  petrified wood stools, antelope antlers (even used as sconce bases).

Were you at High Point this year? What did you post at the market this year? Answer in the comments.

Shop the Look: Jessica de Ruiter's 1950s Home in Silverlake — on @SavvyHome

“I love the way the layers of the house keep building to make a real home” — Jessica de Ruiter









Stylist Jessica de Ruiter and husband Jed Lind, designer at Commune Design, revamped a 1950s home in Silverlake, California for their family. The couple, originally from Toronto, embraced the indoor-outdoor mid-century boho style inherent to California. They filled the house with original modern classics: a Milo Baughman chair and a Paavo Tynell Pulley pendant — and finished the house with lots of textiles: vintage ikat and grain sack pillows, Moroccan and kilim rugs. They brightened up the neutral palette with colorful gallery walls and vintage kids toys.

The result is an easy-breezy and textured oasis that pays respect to the history of the house—where white Carrara marble meets panelled plywood. The house is like a step back in time that’s been updated for modern convenience and comfort.
