Our Joss & Main sale is live right here! It’s been three years since our last Joss & Main sale and it has been so fun to work with them again over the past few months putting together a curated collection inspired by our home. If you haven’t heard of Joss & Main, they are a members only curated flash sale site, offering 70% off furniture and decor. Last time, I hand selected all 100+ items for the sale myself and this time, I sent over photos and had a great interview with them and they selected the pieces. And I gotta say, they knocked it out of the park! They curated a great collection inspired by our home. Some items are plucked straight from our home and some just look like they could fit right in–all at slashed prices. Here are eight pieces that I’m eyeing…in our own sale. Ha!


one | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight

This is just 8 of the 100. I guess it’s natural for me to want everything in the sale, since they are all inspired by our home–But, every. piece?! You can check out the full sale (things are going quickly!) and my interview with them here. It’s live through the next six days.


If you aren’t already a member of Joss & Main, you can access the sale by signing up right here.

    We have the largest size of the Bailey semi flush mount in our living room. We LOVE it. It’s so different from anything else we’ve seen and definitely really pretty compared to most flush mounts.

  2. Megan says:

    So cool! Love all of the items. :)


  3. Lindsay says:

    I love love LOVE your style, your home and all of the pieces in this collection. I have gained so much inspiration from reading your blog. With that said, I do have to agree with the comments above in that the prices for these items are (dare I assume) way out of most of your readers price range. For someone who turns to your blog for inspiration for decorating my own home it would be really nice to have sources for items similar to the ones in your home at more affordable prices. Still… all the heart eyes!

  4. Beth says:

    Congratulations on the Joss & Main gig. I have always loved your style and you’ve really transformed your home into a comfortable-looking, collected and beautiful space, but the prices in your Joss & Main collection are much more expensive than the average person can afford.

  5. Sherri says:

    Typo, Joss not Josh!

  6. Sherri says:

    I’m happy that you got to be a part of the Josh and Main experience. There are some amazing looking items in there. But I wouldn’t pay $130 or $146 for a pillow even if it were made of gold. So I’m glad for you that things are selling, but most of them are way out of my price range. I love you guys, your style, and your blog, but I am not a rich girl!!

    SO cool that you got to work for Joss & Main for this! I always love all their stuff!

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
