I am sure you have noticed how white walls, black and white abstract art and rustic natural elements are trending in a major way. Don’t get me wrong, I love the look too. But I can be fickle and become slightly bored with something that everyone is pinning, blogging and obsessing over (hello Moroccan white shag rug).
Looking at rooms with a bold use of color and a refined design sensibility has been my respite from the overload on the current trend that has saturated the design world. Who better to turn to than the majorly talented Nick Olsen?
This stunning dining room design landed him on the cover of the August World of Interiors issue.
I love this room. I bow before anyone that can use such a bold shade of yellow and make it look so chic.
It’s no secret that we value comfort at CovetedHome. It is the centerpiece of how we want customers to feel when they walk in the store and as an extension, how we want our clients to feel when they (or their guests) walk into their home. It’s also no secret that we like nice things.
In an effort to always be diversifying our product offerings in shop, we’ve added a few fine things…it all started with a dinner out with Sierra Winter, where she convinced me we should have her diamond pieces in the store (it honestly didn’t take much arm twisting, I’ve long coveted these pieces of hers). Followed up by a luxury perfume brand reaching out to us that just recently started distributing in the US to select shops…
I’d love to introduce you to some of the new, finer items in the shop: Abel, a 100% all natural Eau de Parfum with 6 different intoxicating unisex scents. So far I’m hooked on the Golden Neroli and Gray Labdanum. And then there’s the Primrose diamond necklace and earrings by Sierra Winter Jewelry. These two new “fine” offerings are the epitome of quiet, luxurious elegance and I can’t get enough.
For me, the end of summer has looked a little like this: me staying cool inside the shop in a romper with my black birks, diamond necklace and a different Abel scent every day (I’m testing them all out!). Fall is sure to look similar but maybe swap out my birks for my booties and add a chunky sweater. Comfort & luxury is my current vibe.
Stop by soon to see these fine things in person or visit us online.
You may have already heard, but Sierra herself is all sold out! Get the last of her stock here, at the Coveted Home.
This necklace is handcrafted in India using a polki cut diamond and 14K gold. The diamond is a slice that has been backed by silver foil to reflect the light.
Named the Primrose Necklace after one of our favorite prairie flowers that blooms in the spring and summer after the prairie has been burned. When you catch it in the evening light it seems to glow with a beautiful yellow color.

-Size: 16″ long
