Shop Birmingham: Urban Suburban

This is the first of a new series of posts I’m starting about where I love to shop for furniture and items for our home or just browse for inspiration.  For my first post in this series, I’m starting super close to home.  In fact, one of my new favorite shops is Urban Suburban in the heart of our neighborhood, Crestwood.  It just opened on August 3rd and has already found a special place in my heart.  It’s full of great furniture pieces…

(I adore that rug under the antique French chair!!)
Urban Suburban is not your run of the mill antique market.  They’ve got a truly unique atmosphere and besides all the great antique and vintage finds like these amazing vintage suitcases that clearly have a story to tell…
or this entire booth of awesome vintage signs…
Check out those AMAZING light fixtures!
They also rent booths to local artists to display their work…
And it also doesn’t hurt that it’s right next door to Crestwood Coffee Company where I’ve become a regular.  Nothing puts me in an antiquing mood like an iced coffee and a homemade peach muffin.
So, if you’re in the Birmingham area and looking for a new place to treasure hunt, I highly recommend you take a Saturday afternoon to browse Urban Suburban!  You’ll probably see me there!

Things I’m Loving Thursday

Things I’m loving today…

Available here if anyone feels the need buy me a gift in the near future.
Two totally unrelated things, but who cares?  That’s what I’m loving this Thursday!

Fashion for Your Home: Trina Turk

I like to think of decorating my house as the domestic version of getting myself ready every morning. In the same way I use my clothes as an avenue to express my individuality and taste, I use rugs, fabric, pillows, acessories, paint, etc to style my home.  Curtains in my living room are like a chic scarf on my purse…throw pillows are like earrings for my sofa…you get the idea.  
So it only makes sense that we are seeing a recent trend of fashion designers moving in to the world of interior design.  One of my favorite designers, Trina Turk, has started designing accessories for the home in the past year.  Check out these georgous pillows and how they mesh with her fashion aesthetic.
 Meet Trina here and learn more about what has inspired her fashion and home lines!
As we continue to see more and more fashion lines transition into the interior design arena, it’s certain we’ll see loads of beautiful pieces popping up all over the place! I think it’s time i splurge on a Trina Turk pillow…what do you think?
