While shopping in Concord center the other day, I discovered a new store on Walden Street called Hatch. (Their website is forthcoming!) They carry lovely stationary, Marimekko fabrics, Chilewich, and so much more. I purchased some wonderful gift cards by Susy Jack, a contemporary paper company committed to creating the most eco-friendly paper goods possible. The Branch cartlettes are available online at Susy Jack along with a playful collection of notebooks, calendars, and desk accessories. I love the color palette, nature inspired theme and modern simplicity of the Branch design. The blank back-side makes it perfect for year round gift giving or for the holidays!

Over the years I have purchased many beautiful pieces from Koo de Kir. I treasure them and enjoy living with them every day. I thought it would be fun to follow up yesterday’s post about Koo de Kir with a little photo shoot of my Koo finds as styled in my home. The first, above and below, is the small faux bois plate sitting on top of the white dinner plate. I was fortunate enough to buy the last six they had this summer and I’m so pleased I did because they are stunning! Perfect for a small bite or just for display, they are a lovely addition to my earth tone palette. The other Koo beauty is the large mercury glass lamp with bamboo drum shade. I purchased a pair of these show stoppers many years ago and again I’m so pleased that I did! They reflect the light and space in such an interesting and beautiful way. I can’t imagine the living room without them! I included three photos of the table lamp, all styled a bit different. The last image is probably my favorite with the Anne Packard paintings and warm golden light from the sunset today. I hope you enjoy these little vignettes of my home!

Yesterday was a lovely day filled with family and fun! My mom, brother Gary and I went to the Four Seasons for lunch and then to Charles Street for a little shopping! Our first stop was Koo de Kir, a fabulous store located on a quaint side street in Boston’s historic Beacon Hill. Filled with everything from furniture to stemware, it is a shopping destination for those who love warm earth tones, natural linens and unique modern accessories. My top five favorites ~ the Louis Louis Club Chair, a carved wooden wing tray, the Laguiole flatware, the LED clock and the Iittala stemware! If you are looking for a special place to do your holiday shopping, I would highly recommend a trip to Koo de Kir. So many possibilities for your home and gifts for the people you love. To learn more about the retail store and their renowned design studio, click on Koo de Kir

“Koo de Kir – from the French “Coup de Coeur” is a phonetic rendering of the phrase loosely meaning, “a strike to the heart…” Sexy, sublime and soothing, Koo de Kir offers modern home furnishings and home accessories for an urban lifestyle.” ~ Kristine Irving, owner and Creative Director of Koo de Kir

below, I love the unfinished wood frame and natural linen of the Louis Louis Club Chair (so comfortable too!)
