WEEKEND

Jaxon Home Vintage projectsOh Hey! Here’s some clicking around for ya.

I really got into this wicked awesome house renovation tour on Houzz. I’m a lady with many dreams and so when I squeeze my eyes real tight and imagine my lifestyle – about a third or a fourth of the time that scene is dominated by a perfectly renovated mid-century post and beam perched on a hill overlooking a vast landscape full of city lights. So, imagine my delight upon seeing that dream spread before me in a collection of fantastic before and after photos.

I’ve been marathoning Lea Thau’s Strangers podcast lately. I’ve always loved Lea and her podcast was a project that I was super into, but whatever has changed in me in this past year and a half has me relating to these stories and this concept of exploring humanity between strangers on a whole new level. I think I’ve gobbled up almost the entire body of work in the past two weeks.

I’ve been loading up the JaxonHome.com store with accessories. It’s just a start and there are tons more to add, including a new pillow line and a new rug line. We’re really starting to make some curatorial selections and it’s exciting to work toward capturing the Jaxon vibe and trying to tell that story online.

Ummm… our friend Jamie of Furbish Studio was listed as one of the internets best 38 home decor stores on Racked. I mean, I was already filled with joy and awe sitting there flipping through Domino Magazine to find her spread in the glossy whose fold gave her a rise to fame in 2009… and this is yet another big achievement! Furbish is listed among some really heavy hitters the likes of Wayfair, West Elm, CB2, DWR, and alongside distinctive designers like John Robshaw, Jonathan Adler and Thomas Paul. Great company indeed. Congrats to her and her team!

Also, y’all… If you’re following our personal journey, let’s have a hoorah! The dude’s last chemotherapy treatment is done, and we’re just waiting out his final recovery period. Before you know it, we’ll be back to that normal old routine lifestyle where we go to work everyday and eat dinner at that same old restaurant down the street. <3<3<3

Love,
Betsy

A wool Pendleton blanket hanging out with chinoiserie wallpaper, who would’ve thought? Clearly these folks did and it works sooo well.

Camp style can show up in all kinds of interiors. Check out my camp style picks for Houzz this month.
