Emerald Love

Soo, if I start walking around looking like this...you'll know why:

Because i'll be rocking this beauty! For my 30th birthday, Brian wanted to get me an heirloom piece that I would have forever. He nailed it! I think it's pretty splendid. 

18k White Gold 3.23ct Colombian Emerald Ring

What's your favorite stone?

Oushak Rugs

I was beyond excited to be bringing home this beautiful Turkish Oushak rug from Scott's this past weekend.
We have been in the market for an Oushak for some time now, but just haven't come across "the" one. We have seen so many options with beautiful bright colors, but we were looking for one with more of a soft, subdued palette. When this rug was presented we were immediately sold. It looked like a silk rug because of its soft, lustrous wool. So we loaded it up and brought her home!


Here are some other great interiors featuring Oushak rugs:

Best of Atlanta: Shopping, Shopping, Eating!

This past weekend, the hubs took me to Atlanta for the best 30th birthday shopping!!! Our trip was planned around some fabulious jewelry shopping, because nothing helps you ease into 30 like a little bling! Once we found the perfect piece (which I will post when it arrives tomorrow), we beelined over to Scott Antique Market

We pulled off Scott's in 4 hours. I would not recommend that, you will definitely want a little more time to dig around all of the nooks and crannies! Here are some of the highlights from my trip...it's a photo heavy post, but I hope you enjoy!

Score! Great mirror, great price:

Rows and rows of side tables:

This was a Zinc 3-Drawer Dresser, similar to the RH one below, but for a fraction of the price.

$2,200 for this gorgeous French chest of drawers + display space:

These were in a beautiful soft blue velvet. I will definitely be using this company. Small, family owned business out of NC and they specialize in antique reproduction:

My brother and sis in law picked up a killer pair of 50's style wingbacks, how great do these look?

I am still scratching my head over why these did not leave with me. Loved these handsome burl wood chairs...unfortunately, I was the only one who loved them!

Lots of beautiful reproductions:

Great chain lamps:

This guy's work is amazing:

Pooped puppy:

Great metal hardware and loved the wood finish:

Metal mirror:

Fantastic outdoor dining, loved the stitching details on the end chairs:

Great color: 

The chain leg tables are perfect:

Metal accents on a white linen drum pendant:

Will be using these outdoor sconces:

Pair of Pegasus chairs:

French shutter mirror:

Loved the duck egg blue painted arch windows:

Great color:

Embroidered chest:

This beautiful Oushak definitely came home with us, the colors are perfect!

We wrapped up our time in ATL with an amazing dinner at JCT. Kitchen and headed home! That town never disappoints, see you soon Atlanta!
