Midwest Soundtrack: Songs for Fall

I like my music like I like my fall weather –all over the place. One day it’s cold and out come the booties and the sweats. The next say it’s hot and it’s tanks and flops.

These mood-swinging tracks celebrate Girls who rock. Girls who never back down. Who challenge the man and the machine.

Status quo? Yea, no. 

  • YACHT: Psychic City
  • In Love With a Ghost : Flowers
  • Solange: Dancing in the Dark
  • iamamiwhoami: Play
  • Tei Shi: Keep Running (One Bit Remix)
  • Honey is Cool: Baby Jane
  • Hole: Awful
  • Poe: Angry Johnny
  • Orbital: Halcyon and on and on
  • Ra Ra Riot: You and I Know

In Home Styling Services by Coveted Home

We talk to so many people that pass through the store and tell us they are 75-80% satisfied with their house but just can’t seem to finish it. The last bits of pulling together a room with the right accessories and art can be difficult. Thats why we are so excited about our new service, in home styling sessions! This is perfect for those that have the majority of items in a room but it still doesn’t feel quite right or finished. Give us a couple of hours and we will transform your unfinished room. Here are a few before/after pictures from our latest styling session. 

Before: this client really had some amazing pieces to start with! Lots of collectible mid century, but the room just didn’t feel pulled together–all of the accessories were a little haphazard and lackluster. 

After: By staying within a restrained color palate, adding well made pillows and some vintage accessories (plus one big plant!) the space is now cohesive and well thought out. 

Before: the console was definitely an after thought with a few random accessories and a lamp that was too small. 

After: We centered the console on the wall, hung the art, added better proportioned lamps and a few vintage and handmade accessories that fit our color palate and vibe. 

Before: the dining room felt unfinished and a bit bare. 

After: we added a few simple accessories that fit our vibe–the handmade table runner and vintage pottery piece on the table. 

After: the clients happen to have an amazing bar in another room so this bar cart is more for accessories and to look pretty. We added a plant and some vintage pottery as well as the African basket on the wall to help anchor the cart. 

After: One of our vintage Turkish runners in the hall helps bridge the two spaces.

Hashtag Round-Up: June’s #MyCovetedHome Picks

2017. We hardly even know you yet your halfway gone!

This has been the toughest round-ups yet. But there we were, scrolling through the days of June when we notice a strong theme — most our our favorites, they’re dining rooms! So, we stuck with it. And that’s that — June is the unwitting month of dining rooms and these are the cream of the crop. 

This mix by @suzannasantostefanodesign  has everything. Rustic, modern, bold art and so much personality. So good. 

Can’t get enough of what @sub_folk_collective  is up to, its just the right amount of “more is more”.

The unique talent of @kim_dti always catches our eye, her home is moody, artistic perfection.

 Sometimes the most simple room stands out in a crowd and  @leantimms  beautiful and welcoming dining room did just that. 

As always, be sure to check out the fab accounts we’ve featured. They’re designers and decorators and artists and creatives to keep your eyes on 😉

Use the hashtag #mycovetedhome for a chance to be featured in the July Roundup!
