Hope everyone is having as good of a week as they can. While no one is feeling good right now we hope to bring you a little joy as you read this. On Monday, Emily is revealing her primary bath:) If you missed the recap or the medicine cabinet journey go catch up on those before tomorrow. She is really proud of it (even the “hiccups”) and we hope you love it too. Since Monday is reveal day, you know that means…we have another great and in-depth YouTube video for you! So before all of the links, here’s a little preview of the primary bath video (just wait for the short ad to play:))
And if you’re ready to watch the whole thing, tap right here to enjoy:
This week’s house tour is actually a hotel. But not just any hotel! This Parisian hotel was designed by EHD favorite, Beata Heuman. Hôtel de la Boétie is her first hotel and if the photos are any indication it’s perfect. Colorful, whimsical, and chic just like all of her projects. Go check it out here!
Our friends at Pact have extended their EHD-exclusive sale through the end of the month! Right now, you can take 20% off your entire order (that’s the best deal currently available!) with code EHDFALL. For some cute outfit inspo, be sure to check out Em’s fall basic recommendations or our favorite pull-on-and-go pieces that’ll make you feel pulled together, even when you’re just running errands. (PS. Did we mention that they’re affordable, sustainable, and women-owned? If nothing else, you’ve gotta check out the cute landing page they made for Em – love it when our partners go above and beyond.)
From Emily: I just finished a page-turning weekend read that, yes, is in the romance genre but it’s more about relationships. It’s called The Roughest Draft (Kindle + Local) and it’s written by a husband and wife author team that usually does YA, but this is their first foray into more of the adult genre. You definitely get a sense that they bring a lot of their own relationship into the story which makes it very compelling and hard to put down. Brian’s even gonna give it a go because he heard about it–that’s how non-romance novel-y it is.
From Caitlin: OH MY GOSH. Why did it take me so long to learn about Bottle Bright tablets?! Y’ALL HAVE BEEN HOLDING OUT ON ME!!! Here’s the deal: I love having fresh flowers around the house, but some of my vases are REALLY difficult to clean and they’ve been looking a little worse for the wear. (The ones with narrow neck openings? The super long and tall ones? HOPELESS.) Enter: these freakin’ miracle tablets! Over the weekend, I filled up two of my glass vases with warm water, dropped a tablet in each, left them in the sink overnight, poured them out the next morning, and…MAGIC. All the gunk that had been impossible to reach and that had been clouding up the glass was just TOTALLY GONE. I didn’t even have to do anything!!! No scrubbing, no swishing, no monitoring – I just dropped in a tablet and my vase was clean. These were originally formulated for water bottles (and I will absolutely be using them for that task, too) but OMG I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW WELL THEY WORKED. (Actually, I can – the reviews are filled with people who have freshened up ancient coffee tumblers, teapots, and more.) Anyway, if you want clean vessels but do not want to spend time scrubbing anything, these are AWESOME. (PS. If you also like buying vintage cache pots or barware or planters or anything that can hold liquid, these make fast work of cleaning up that gunk, too!)
From Mallory: I was marketed for this dress and they got me good. How cute would it be with some chunky gold earrings and tall black boots??? I’m in my Sandro-style-but-not-Sandro-prices era and this dress totally fits the bill 🙂
Also from Mallory: I wish I had a baby child at Christmas time just so I could dress them in this.
A BEAUTIFUL collaboration just launched between St. Frank and Food52! It’s full of color and pattern and is mostly things for your table…but of course, there are some pillows too:)
From Gretchen: Winter is coming and I need a new coat! I had a long puffer coat I once loved from Uniqlo (basically this one), that sadly bit the dust. I wore it camping once and a rogue ember burned a hole in the arm–thankfully I caught it before it burned one in mine! It also wasn’t waterproof, which is a mega bummer here in Oregon, like in a really dumb way. Finding my perfect coat means: it’s matte black with minimal to no flashy branding, Michelin Man puffy, sits at or well below my knees but doesn’t graze the floor, has a good hood with no fur, is under $200 (we’ll see) and, most importantly, is waterproof or water repellent. Does anyone out there know of a coat like this?? That you swear by? I’m starting my search back where I left off, at Uniqlo, with this coat. It says it’s waterproof and I like the overall look and price, but I’m still searching. Of course, I LOVE this Lululemon coat but it’s roughly double my budget, so I’d really need to love it, love it to justify the buy. I also found this great option from Quince. I haven’t bought from here before so it makes me a bit nervous, but it may be worth a try? For now, I’m back to the drawing board but would love to hear if anyone out there can recommend something better!
From Arlyn: Man do I love a designer collab. I mean…who doesn’t, right? While I’m not sure entirely when, I know my EHD pals shared the original release of Arvin Olano’s line for RugsUSA (it’s so good, it’s worth mentioning again). His fall collection just launched this past Thursday and ugh…I want everything. I’m in the beginning phases of finding some new rugs for my dining room/living room and many of these are high on the list.
Also from Arlyn: I’m always looking for meal inspiration that’s satisfying, affordable, healthy, and everyone at my table will eat. I recently found and tried this recipe for whipped tahini tofu with a bean and tomato medley and OMG I enjoyed eating it so much. The next time I make it, I’ll likely add some more acid via white balsamic vinegar and let the beans and tomatoes marinate a bit more but I couldn’t wait to eat the leftovers the next day.
From Jess: TikTok may have got me again. Look at this car phone holder that goes into your cupholder! I might have been living under a rock because until this week I hadn’t seen one like this! This is IDEAL since the vent holders tend to not be strong enough for the bigger phones or don’t always work with bulkier cases. You can also place your phone vertically or horizontally AND still be able to use your cup holder for you know, a cup. The reviews are great so I am adding to cart!
Thank you for reading, go watch that YouTube video :), and see y’all tomorrow. xx
