Fall Trends Translated

The fall season is almost officially upon us. Well, almost. If you live in the Midwest like we do, it’s fairly certain that the strict definition of a “season” can be very blurry. It’s always a gamble. So, we may be prematurely pushing cable knit sweaters and frantically searching for our Hunters, but we just can’t wait any longer. Fall, as unreliable as you are, we will always love you.

We have appropriately paired up some of our favorite fall fashion trends for this year with their home decor “doppelgänger”. All items featured are available to purchase in-store and online at Coveted Home.

Summer Beach Vibes

It is an unfortunate fact that we live in a landlocked world that is Kansas City. As much as I love my hometown, lazy days at the beach call to me especially during the summer months. Aside from the watermelon cocktails and clam bakes my daydreams tend to consist of, I can picture open air bungalows decked out in blues and whites. Relaxed, effortless spaces that spill out onto a wrap around porch that is just the same. Here are some options, that together, can help bring the summer beach vibes inland. Insert hammock + sound of waves on the shore.

Loft Life // Client Update

Kansas City has some fantastic loft spaces in the downtown area and my client lives in one of them. Wide open spaces, high ceilings and windows galore with great views. But why do contractors that build loft spaces think its cool to paint every single wall a different “accent color”? This is a design pet peeve of mine..accent walls are tricky and should only be done by a design professional with really good taste. Otherwise they end up looking very cheesy/commercial and or dated. Needless to say her walls were painted an array of burnt orange, sage green, dark gray and I think there was a blue color thrown in for good measure.

We knew we would have lots of color in rugs and upholstery so the first order of business was to paint the walls white. We used Shoji White by Sherwin Williams and it looks sooo good, it was really the perfect shade for this space. My client fell in love with this piece of art from the shop and actually purchased it before we even had a chance to hang it on the wall at Coveted Home! This was the starting off point for new gray velvet upholstery on some vintage chairs, gorgeous Rebecca Atwood pillows and a neutral Dash & Albert rug that created a beautiful sitting area in her entry. IMG_1078

The benches are part of this crazy cool vintage cocktail table/ottoman. We reupholstered them with this beautiful marbelized fabric. The glass top rests on the middle piece (which we still need to have reupholstered..I’m thinking a cream/white color) and the ottomans are there for extra seating when you need to pull them out. Her mother found that amazing vintage rug at an estate sale. #score

I quickly styled this shot with some extra accessories she had laying around. There is still some more to do here but I’m loving how this project is turning out and look forward to sharing the completed space in the future!

A Tribute to the Weekend

Summer is officially beginning! Those dreams of sitting poolside, grilling out with friends and family, concocting refreshing adult beverages…they are all about to come true. It is Memorial Day Weekend, the kickoff to warmer months and longer evenings. It is an American tradition. A time to honor the past and celebrate the future.

In lieu of this, we have compiled a group of shop favorites that when combine, make for one heck of a patriotic tribute. Have a safe and wonderful weekend, everyone!

Indigo Wild

We’ve got the blues….and in at least 50 shades. It has been a long standing trend, blue. For myself, it has overpowered my wardrobe for years and now I find that my home has come down with the case of the blues as well. From indigo to royal to navy. Moody and natural. Blue is a color that connects.

Patio weather is just around the corner and we are all ready to get comfortable outdoors!

This time of year makes us all want to makeover our patio or porch. Below are some shop favorites (all of which are specifically made for outdoor use) that are sure to instantaneously turn your space from drab to fab!

Look! What’s New.

Okay. So the stars haven’t necessarily aligned for us to enjoy an early spring, but I would go ahead and count them as lucky with our latest additions to the shop!  We have just received a shipment from MARGINS, a California-based print studio, whose works “draw on the natural world and numerous spiritual traditions”.  We are featuring their fascinating Moon Calendars in a variety of colors, all of which are custom framed.

We have also been graced with the presence of Jules, a gorgeous polished brass and glass dining table from the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams spring collection. She is part of a vast collection of similar occasional pieces, all of which are available to order through Coveted Home. Lastly, we are restocked on our ever-popular Dash & Albert rugs in both woven cotton and indoor/outdoor polypropylene. We have a difficult time keeping these guys in, so stop by the shop today to snag a coveted 2×3 that have arrived in springlike shades of coral and blue.
