    Grethe Meyer's designs are indeed timeless. Using the late designer's original sketches (from May 1984!) Menu has put the beautiful GM Pendant Lamp into production.

    And what a lady. Grethe enjoyed a long career and creative life as both an architect and designer, passing away at the age of 90 in 2008.

    You can read more about Grethe Meyer's legacy here.

    Shop Menu's GM Pendant Lamp .. available in both Small & Large.

    shhh | H&H Blog

    1.  SHHH
    I've taken a break from the H&H blog over the past month or so. We took a glorious vacation to Carmel & San Francisco California ... a coastal northern ca & southern oregon roadtrip -- such a fantastic time we had! Since home, i've been making plum jam, pear sauce and otherwise finishing up with the summer garden (and a bit late to start my planting for fall, but oh!). It's been a beautiful (and hot!) country summertime and I wouldn't trade living in the countryside for anything. Getting out, being inspired. Living an authentic life. image via.

    Also? Fall is just about here. This scarf in canada dark green & this dress by rachel comey are both on my list.


    onions | H&H Blog

    2. inspired by the harvest
    there is so much natural beauty in the autumn harvest right now that it feels like such a waste to gather interior inspiration from someone else's kitchen or colorway. trends are prepackaged cookies compared to the rich cream, golds & darks ... and the  ever so slight bit of greens of a pile of onions pulled fresh out of the dirt!

    I was able to edge in on the remaining 2014 CSA from Working Hands Farm and far more than the dinner menu is in high inspiration. Seriously.

    Unrelated to onions and perhaps a couple years old, but i love this --  Jay Z's chat with an "old lady" ... is well, charming in both directions. watch it here.

    Ah, personality, you know? Anyone else burnt out on even looking at black & white monochrome spaces? I love minimal, I love monochrome but the super graphic, product-placement so-so spaces are just so boring ... and clunky.

    Authentic spaces are so cohesive that at first glance you will get a genuine sense of the person,  a beautiful reflection. A space should never say "look at all my amazing products" hah, you get the idea.

    And so it reminds me of the new AW14 Ferm Living Collection. At first glance I'm not quite sure what's Ferm Living and what's not. But I do get a genuine sense of the collection, the personality. And I love it's warmth and ease .... and stated-ness.

    We don't have the new collection up on House&Hold quit yet ... but soon! Be sure to sign up for the H&H Newsletter to be with it.

    aesop & kinfolk | H&H Blog

    1. aesop / kinfolk / portland
    portland is cool and we all know that. but locals have even more to toot our horn about ... 2 new aesop stores will be opening up early august .. one in the west end and a second on nw 23rd. seriously now.

    aesop will be launching their new shops in conjunction with kinfolk (with a preview of their new fall edition 'The Imperfect Issue') on thursday august 7th at the west end location (1300 w. burnside) .. rsvp to join the celebration.



    bloodstream | H&H Blog

    2. imperfect
    speaking of kinfolk, i guess ... and imperfection ... perhaps. i thought this snippet on bloodstream was interesting. she nutshell-ed it with this one:

    "It’s so important for us to remember what is real, what we can expect of ourselves and what is a modern minimalist fairytale. Live a distinguished existence, but not at the expense of beauty that cannot be curated, the beauty that is real and happens when you aren’t riding through the forest in your Swedish Hasbeens on your light blue cruiser with a puppy in your basket on your way to an outdoor garden party with string lights and handsome humans. Remember the spark that cannot be contrived from selecting your surroundings."

    You can read the rest here, well put.

    also, on another note if i were in seattle tonight you bet i'd be at the twin peaks / david lynch night at the SAM. creepy northwest woodsy drama & cherry pie with coffee? totally.


    wild herb curd | H&H Blog

    3. wild herb curd
    nettles clearly scare me after being relentlessly stung by them as a kid, but i'd be all down with the wild herb curd (also, fun to say...) in this recipe for nettle bread by fork & flower.

    unrelated to nettles, please add the cripple creek perfume by na nin to your must have list. i can almost smell it...

    Working Hands Farm is just down the country road from our home. They've built a brand new farm since I  posted about them last April ... and it's beautiful. Old fashion farm qualities & function yet has a really refined aesthetic. It's evident they've put a lot of thought into their space.

    A 2015 CSA membership is definitely in order ..!  Working Hands Farm also has an incredible blog that'll make you long to be a farmer....  & their photos are amazing.

    Estate & tag sales are my favorite, especially in the summertime. I love a good treasure hunt (and bargain!) so I go out as often as I can. These sorts of found objects add such a rich layer of authenticity to your home, something I think we all desire. If your home is looking like everyone else's stop buying the "it" product of the moment (or worse yet, being bummed that everyone has copied you...) and buy something ... authentic.

    Pictured above is one afternoon's finds. A handful of i vetri di fidenza jars (one can never have too many jars!), an off white crock and perhaps my best score of the year -- a Hammersmith Copper Saucepan, made in Brooklyn. For $1! Retails for $209 .... oh ya!
