Spring is finally in the air! Can you believe it? In celebration, I’m sharing a few bits and bobs currently floating around my desktop inspiration folder. Lately I’ve got my eye on rattan, painterly greens, and burnished brass just to name a few… Any trends you’re particularly drawn to for spring?

Ziggy has his eye on the Butterfield set they’re offering up (amongst others…) so we’re hoping you can help us out by heading over to Instagram and liking the image below. If you’ve got a spoiled little pup of your own, read Hanna’s instructions here and enter yourself – this one is not to be missed!

A Lovely Boutique

Fallon of one of my favorite blog’s, A Lovely Being announced this morning that she opened an Etsy shop to clear out some of her precious antiquing finds that she no longer has room for. As expected, the result is a perfectly styled, well-curated selection of pretty little things (I already have my eye on a malachite and brass box). Take a peek at some of Fallon’s wares below and make sure to head over to see the rest!

Bar Palladio

I was catching up on Remodelista earlier when I came across a post on the new Bar Palladio inside one of Jaipur’s most historic hotels, the Narain Niwas Palace Hotel. Though I’m hoping to plan a trip to Morocco sometime in the future, seeing these images has placed India close to the top of my must-see destinations.

Bar Palladio’s gorgeous design details were dreamt up by Marie-Anne Oudejans who also happens to have founded one of my favorite clothing lines, Tocca. Small world, huh? From the crisp blue & white florals, to the ticking patterns on the chairs, and the painted mural I am completely taken with this stunning space!

Is it me or does this winter seem particularly brutal? With no end in sight I’ve taken to browsing the web for new spring merch. Though we’re still in the middle of what feels like another polar vortex, it brings a smile to my face thinking about the warmer temps ahead. Visions of strolling around our neighborhood, dinners al fresco, and trip to the beach again are keeping me sane!

So when I came across Kertis‘ handmade leather goods in the prettiest leafy / floral patterns, my mind gravitated towards the tropics and off of how many layers I’d have to bundle up in to take Ziggy out for his afternoon walk… Aren’t they lovely? I’d use them as clutches or to organize the odds and ends that always end up floating around the bottom of my bag. Find more Kertis styles in her etsy shop here.
