"Through the Lens" with Minted

Adding art to our space has been the biggest challenge of settling in. It's always a battle between finding pieces that fit in with our minimalist surroundings, that pull on our heart strings in all the right ways and simultaneously don't break the bank. Enter: Minted. I've been obsessed with Minted's fun designs for a while (Christmas cards anyone?!) so you can imagine how overjoyed I was to discover them hosting a photography-only challenge within their independent artist marketplace.

Ever the fan of California dreams and eye-catching cacti, I immediately fell in love with this submission by Wilder California. I think it adds the perfect bit of pop to our hazy 70s inspired record cart and it has been such a welcomed framed friend. In the market for your own art? Minted's Through The Lens winners boast a ton of beautiful photos for every taste!

Bathroom Inspiration

Lately I've been feeling the need to rethink our bathroom. For some reason, it's the space that I always pay the least amount of attention to and it always gets the short end of the decorating stick. With no natural light to speak of, it's going to be a struggle to work in a little greenery but I'm up for the challenge. Here's to our pre-fab powder room transitioning to a restful oasis!

Currently Coveting: June

I have so many exciting plans for June! Since Summer is in full swing (and Lo's birthday is toward the end of the month), I can already tell that our little family is going to be getting into quite a few adventures. I would love to get outside and play a bit more, make a few changes in our space and dress the part for Summer.

"Stella" by Mosi Bicycles - I've been wanting a (cute) bike for the longest time. We have an amazing trail right next to our apartment and it would be so fun to get out with Lo and Mr. Jackson on the weekends and enjoy the fresh air. This sweet ride just needs a basket for stashing picnic goods and farmer's market finds.

J.Crew Downing Tote - I'm expanding Chelsea & The City and taking on a few editorial styling jobs this month. With all the running around (sourcing clothes, picking up flowers from the market, lugging supplies to shoots), I think it's finally time to invest in a great tote. While I love Cuyana's option and the classic Downing tote is gorgeous, the fun metallic really makes a statement!

Serena & Lily Painting - I've yet to hang any art in our place (it definitely doesn't feel homey yet) and I'm thinking neutral but graphic gallery walls are the way to go. This earthy piece is just the thing to ground a few family photos and fun prints, don't you think?

"The Jumpsuit" - This denim jumpsuit is perfect for all sorts of Summer happenings. I can definitely see this piece at the market, at the park or even dressed up for a more fashion-forward occasion.

Ikea STOCKHOLM - Even though this piece of furniture is marketed as a TV unit, I can totally see it as a sideboard in our dining room or as a catch-all in our front hall. We're definitely still missing a few key pieces in our apartment and I'm really excited to dedicate some time to finishing things up this Summer.

What are you coveting right now?
