It’s been one year and six days since we launched our first 3 rug collections with Loloi–Jules, Alice, and Rosemarie.

And about 365 days since we started on our newest collection coming out on Monday!! (ahhh!!!))

I’ve been dropping hints here and there because keeping this secret to myself has been too much to bare! Here, and here, and here to catch you up. We’re so excited to share our next collection… Polly!

Set your alarms for Monday, November 15th for 11am EST for the launch. These rugs are so stunning and such high quality. And oops, there’s going to be pillows too. 8 rugs, in a variety of sizes, and 7 pillows! This collection is unlike the others, yet they’re meant to mix and match with them seamlessly. This feels like a full-circle moment, and I can’t wait to share it with you all–of course inspired by our youngest daughter Polly, but sophisticated enough for your living room.

This may be the first time I’m saying this, but Monday can’t come soon enough!

Other fun things this week!

• I don’t normally wear this silhouette, but I ordered this dress and it’s SO comfortable and the colors are so pretty for fall and layering.

• Ordered this cute dress for our girls for our Christmas cards! I think we’re going to take them on our staircase this year.

A super refreshing kitchen with cherry-ish? wood cabinets. Great inspo!

The Always Pan is on sale for just $99!! Get one for yourself and your mom. She’ll probably keep it permanently on her stove.

• Hung this beautiful Bunny Head in Polly’s room this week. I bought it for her old room and somehow it works even more perfectly in her room now.

Love this brass mistletoe. <3

    So timely as I’m rug shopping and need to be able to mix and match in adjacent rooms rather than duplicate the same rug. Will definitely be taking a look!

    Also, that cherry kitchen is the best I’ve ever seen.

looking for inspiration? 

A reader recently asked me if I’m starting to fully embrace traditional style and whether we still consider our house to be a “modern Colonial” and why. It was a really great question and so timely — I had really just been thinking about my approach to this home and how my style has changed […]
