Libation Stations

By Kate Riley July 12, 2016

Bonjour mes amis! I am sitting in the little Parisian apartment I rented and checking in with the world after a blissful few days of running around Paris with my travel companion, c’est magifique! The weather has been so fantastic which has kept me out and about exploring this extraordinary city, see a few snaps of my adventures abroad on Instagram.

Last week I was entertaining some friends and family for the Fourth of July and to make it simple, I set up a little beverage station for guests to help themselves to a cocktail. (I’ll share my party related project later this week.) On a daily basis, I don’t leave alcohol out on display since I have young children at home, but when hosting a party a libation station does comes in handy!

I’ve gathered up a few favorite collections of cocktail stands and carts spied around the web.

Do you have a libation station set up in your home, or is it something you assemble only when entertaining?

New Summer Fabrics

By Kate Riley July 8, 2016

For these new prints I found inspiration in my recent trip to Fiji and Australia, by the tropical climate and the colors of summer. Exotic flowers, vivid sunsets, beautiful beaches! In those vistas I observe such beautiful colors and want to recreate them in textile form.

I ran out of time to pull together a lookbook this season since I’m boarding a plane for Paris today (bon voyage!) so I’m sharing some styled images here. In addition to the Go With The Flow print introduced yesterday, I’m excited to introduce these new patterns to you!

I had a lot of fun designing these new prints in a variety of complementary colorways that you can mix together.
