It’s autumn! In Kansas City, the trees are still green, but soon, they will turn red, brown, and gold. It’s a magical time of year! The changing colors, falling leaves, sweater weather, fires, and pumpkin spice; it’s easy to see why fall is America’s favorite season.
Each new season is an opportunity to reevaluate our homes and make practical and aesthetic changes. In the summer, I put away my rugs and extra textiles, it seems to help the house feel cooler and more relaxing. In the fall, I bring out my textiles, so we have them on hand in case we get chilly. Many people like to celebrate autumn by changing their home accessories. But, you don’t have to go pumpkin crazy or hang up scarecrows and skeletons to honor the harvest season. Adding a few gold accents can help bring the fall spirit indoors. Gold can make your home feel warm and cozy (a must, on those chilly fall evenings). Whatever your style, we carry a range of gold home accessories that can give your home an autumnal vibe.
Stay Gold with Coveted Home. Most items shown above are available to purchase through Coveted Home in Kansas City and are also available to view through their corresponding links. As always, let us help you design your life.
One of the best parts about being located in KC is the abundance of talented, creative folks who call this city home. Not to mention, a community that fully supports the movers, shakers, and makers who are helping to shape this city into one of the best cities to live in the U.S.. What do pretty flowers have to do with that, you ask? We believe in better living through design. This is true about individual homes as well as whole communities. When the design community (print, fashion, interior, floral, etc.) flourishes, the community reaps the benefits. So, when we have the opportunity to work with local creatives who are willing to share their talents and skills with the community, we get stoked! Last month, we hosted a flower-arranging workshop with Emily Walters of The Bloom Academy, and she brought some gorgeous flowers and gave us some useful tips for great flower-arranging. It might seem intuitive (you just stick the flowers in a vase, right?) – but we all learned some new tricks to take our arrangements to the next level. It wasn’t all work, we also had a great time! Moxie Catering prepared some delicious noshes and nibbles for the event, and The Garnish Co. created the perfect summer sangria. We knew the arrangements would look stunning in vessels by Convival Production, so we gave each guest a vase to take home. Sarah Sweeny was there to document the fun-filled evening, and we’re excited to share some of the photographs from the evening with you! Stay tuned for more details about future events, floral or otherwise.

The best wedding gifts are the ones that stand the test of time; the ones you will use and enjoy year after year. It can be an arduous task to decide which gifts will really enrich your lives and which ones will be taking up space, collecting dust, only to eventually be donated to charity. If you want to include handmade/local products, or other unique, heirloom-quality items, consider registering at Coveted Home. We’ve added an online registry system to our website to make creating a wish list more convenient for you and your partner. You can easily add items to your wishlist online or stop by the shop to see items in person, and one of our associates will help create your registry.
How to create your registry online:
Create an account on covetedhome.com – Click on “My Account” at the bottom of the page
Click “add to wishlist” on an item to add the first item to your wishlist
A window will open and prompt you to name your wishlist and set preferences
You can choose to have public, private, or shared (only accessible by the link and not searchable on the site) wish lists. You can manage you wish lists from My Account or the Manage Wishlist link in the footer under the My Account menu column. Shoppers can access the registry search tool under the floating menu, the shop menu, and under Online Tools. Email or call us if you have any questions about setting up your registry.
And if you want to keep all of your registries in one place, many universal gift registry sites like myregistry.com will let you add items from big box chains as well as indie shops (like, Coveted Home).
Small Business Saturday is almost upon us (November 29th)! We are so proud to be a part of such an amazing community like Kansas City where we stand among some of the most talented fellow merchants around. Shopping local is a win-win for all involved, especially during this busy holiday season. Let’s all work together to build our growing neighborhoods by shopping at our local boutiques, eating our local fare, and taking part in local services.
Coveted Home is participating in Small Business Saturday with a few incentives! We are offering 15% off all purchases of $50 or more, including Special Orders. We will also be serving up some delicious hot cider to all who attend.
Our Saturday hours are from 10-6. Hope to see you then!
I can’t believe it is June already. Which means that July is just around the corner. Which means I have exactly 57 days till I head for the mountains of Colorado for some highly anticipated R&R with my girlfriends. The men will be “roughing it” for 5 days in the middle of a national park so this gives us freedom to explore! One shop in particular has been on my radar for months now. I am so excited to visit Cedar & Hyde Mercantile, a small boutique located in Boulder whose wares range from home goods, market items, and apparel for both men and women.
Cedar & Hyde was founded by sister duo Christie and Poss Lambert and officially opened it’s doors in October of last year. “Inspired by the past and also encouraged to make different choices for the future”, Cedar & Hyde Mercantile is a modern day general store. Fueled by the overwhelming interest and support for the “maker”, the revival of the general store mentality is running rampant from coast to coast. Here at Coveted Home, this movement is welcomed with open arms.
The name Cedar & Hyde Mercantile is the combination of historical reference and the inspiration of raw materials.
Hand woven baskets, Turkish towels, artisanal bath & body products. This is my kind of general store.
I spy Young in the Mountains, a small ceramic and jewelry line that will soon be showcased in the shop. We are more than thrilled!
