Welcome to this week’s Wednesday Watch List, where I share the random things that captured my attention and stole my heart over the past week!

1 – I absolutely loved touring this gorgeous before and after home tour from Mindy Gayer Designs! You can see Part I and Part II for all the details! This little entry nook in Part II is one of my favorites parts of the whole project – but it’s all pretty stunning!
2 – I made this mood board last week when I was dreaming of days at the beach but still grateful we have at least another month of summer left! You’ve seen a few of these pieces before, but there are also some new finds as well. And quite a few of these are on sale right now! All the sources can be found below the image. This beach sweater is perfect for nights that get cooler but aren’t quite cool enough for a sweatshirt! Use code GOSALE for 25% off the full-priced items and 50% off the sale styles at J. Crew!
MOOD BOARD SOURCES: Beach Sweater | Chambray Shorts | Striped Tassel Umbrella | Rattan Earrings | Sunglasses | Striped Turkish Towel | Straw Hat | Jute Slide Sandals | Knotted Headband | Banana Lip Balm | Striped Long-Sleeve Rash Guard | Bikini Bottoms | Seersucker One-Shoulder Bathing Suit | Montauk Tee | Straw Bag
3 – I instantly fell in love when I spotted this block print quilted bedding! I love both the Spa and Indigo color options. And I love that it could be mixed and matched with a lot of other bedding options! So pretty!
In the image below, you can see how the quilt reverses to a striped pattern. So versatile!
4 – I’m not sure about you guys, but I’m changing my personal approach to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year. Now that we’re both working from home for the foreseeable future and we don’t leave our house much, I don’t really have a need for a lot of “going out” type clothes. So, my focus this year is on comfy lounge wear, stocking up on beauty favorites, and snagging a few home decor pieces to cozy things up for fall! I have all the details of the sale on this new page I created, including when you can shop and to see some more of my top picks so far. But today, I wanted to focus on this chunky knit throw. If you’ve ever searched for one in the past, you know they’re not cheap. But I love the look in the fall and winter months and I just can’t get this olive color out of my mind! I actually have the ivory version from the sale a few years ago and still use and love it. But I think this olive one is going to be the jumping-off point for all of our living room fall decor this year! I think they’ll look perfect draped on our spindle chairs or cuddled up on our sofas! And in sale news, once I’m able to order and then receive my items, I’ll plan to do a try-on with my favorites.
5 – It’s no secret that we love our charcuterie boards around here. It’s not uncommon that we eat one or two a week for dinner in the summer months! So I’m always on the hunt for new serving boards to change things up. I love this green marble striped serving board I found in the recent CB2 catalog! So pretty and would be a fun pop of color for so many seasons. I actually have this striped marble board from Studio McGee and we get a lot of use out of it! I found a similar option (and also loved this one) yesterday when I was looking for even more alternatives! My next goal is to try and start varying some of the items we serve each time. You can see some of our all-time favorites to use in my post on how to make a charcuterie board.
