Holiday Gifts for the Global Wanderer

the-global-wanderer

Hi everybody!

We are moving right along. Today’s holiday gift ideas are for your friends with the wanderlust.

Ah, does she appreciate a good escape.

Whether it is through her latest adventures abroad, a good cultural read or her addiction to her textiles stash.

The global wanderer appreciates the quality of handiwork that is evident in her collections from around the world. She lives vicariously through the products she collects from the far reaches, whether she’s traveled there in person or not.

This is a little piece of what that looks like. Find all of these items and shop the entire Global Wanderer Gift collection on TEOT, here.

ADD THIS! Vintage African White Mudcloth

White Mudcloth

If you aren’t yet hip to the Vintage African textiles trend, get up on it y’all.

Mudcloth, in it’s exciting tribal patterns as well as the many indigos and ikats that we are seeing, are all the rage.

Today, we celebrate the wonderful addition that a white mudcloth pillow brings to any pillow grouping, regardless of your style. We love the boho maximal goodness that is everywhere we turn, but we also really appreciate a more subtle, if not sophisticated application of these nubby, textured and soft textiles.

The black and white pattern plays nicely with other colors and patterns and will likely pair well with your current decor. It’s an easy addition for a new flair.

Cruise on over to shop TEOT and see what we have in stock in white mudcloth. We think your home will sing with the addition of one of these global goodies!

Shop Talk: TEOT Mini Kitchen Reveal

Hi friends,

Thanks for stopping in.

I wanted to give you guys a look at the final design of the mini-kitchen in our new brick and mortar shop.

For a quick refresher, SHOP TEOT is laid out very much like an apartment. We took that idea and ran with it.

Before we came along, the space was a salon. The back room that we turned into our kitchen had some really ugly exposed PVC piping and bit of a mess of some cabinetry. With the help of our crew, we pulled it all out, capped it off and started afresh with a miniature kitchen build.

This is where we were when we signed the lease.

Having a mini kitchen built into the retail space serves a number of functions.

It’s wonderful for presentation and merchandising of our newly expanded kitchen and housewares collection. A sink is always a good idea, from washing dirty DIY hands to late nights with a bit of sour beer to get you through the tagging and pricing process. Of course, the whole setup plays host nicely for catered parties as well.

Sarah knew pretty immediately that she wanted to put in some pesto green kitchen cabinets and an apron front sink. She zeroed in on a paint color called Artichoke, by Sherwin Williams.

You might have guessed it, but a quick look at the history of our kitchen trends will find that our blog pretty much nails the final product. We have our sconces, our open shelving, our favorite cabinet hue, brass pulls, mixed metals, and white subway tile!

 

It all comes together for a modern take on classic design! Here’s the final look. We hope you love the result as much as we do!

New Bedding for Fall

By Posted on 0

Fall is in the air…

Here in Los Angeles of course, it’s still a bunch of hot degrees, but the nights are growing cooler and soon we will buckle in for the season change.

All of you on the East Coast seem to be bundling up for Friday Night Football games and long afternoons in the park where the leaves will soon be changing colors.

My nephew, the freshman kicker on his HS Varsity team, just kicked a winning field goal and the after photos made me long for a cozy cable knit sweater and some new ankle boots to love.

While you are getting ready to get cozied up for the new season, we have an idea for you!

Fall is a wonderful time to update to your bedding for a fresh take on the season. I recently added a cool white linen duvet to my bedding scenario and it gave me a whole new outlook on my quality of life. It’s silly how much of a difference a change like that can make. Of course I also moved my bed to the opposite side of the room for its 3rd spot since we moved in. I’m trying desperately to find a configuration I can commit to, so we can call that room complete.

So, back to the task at hand. Our signature serene blues and whites from the TEOT bedding line are fantastic for a transition into cooler nights.

We selected a number of designs by the inimitable John Robshaw. If you aren’t familiar, trust us when we say that the extra long staple cottons (aka Egyptian Cottons) used in his lovely block print motifs are the most luxurious that the market has to offer. Sarah and her mom are HUGE fans of this bedding line and we are proud to offer them exclusively at TEOT in downtown Southern Pines.

So, in preparation for this, the coziest time of year – we suggest you lively up yourself with a major bedding upgrade! Here’s a peek from a recent tear out in Sarah’s inspiration file.
