Homes I Love: Rustic Modernism

As I mentioned on Monday in this post, this past Saturday night I went to the open house of my friend Sarah and her husband's new home.

Sarah is a jewelry and home textile designer. She is an artist. I worship everything she makes. I have four of her beautiful pillows in my home and a few pairs of her earrings.

She and her husband recently built their dream home and let me tell is a dream. I wasn't able to get as many pictures as I wanted because the house was packed with folks that came out to help them celebrate. Next month Houzz is doing a spread on her new digs. I will update y'all to when that happens so you can get a real good look at this fantastic home. Here are the few pics I did take....and believe me when I say that they do not do the home justice.

Here is the beautiful living room...

The guest room, which I ADORE...

And her fab master bedroom and her own closet...

The details around the home are what really blew me away but I wasn't able to photograph them as I would have liked.  The rustic modernism of the home really speaks to me.  She and her husband did an amazing job.

The first things I bought from her were the amazing pillows you see in the white bamboo chairs below.  They are moved around my home from room to room on a regular basis.

I gave a couple of these pillows to friends as a wedding gift.

Also, I just got the pillow pictured below.  I am crazy about it.  It goes perfectly in my little random, shabby chic and modern western second guest room.

How insane is that?  It may be my most favorite thing I have bought, ever.

Sarah's bread and butter is her jewelry.  Like her home, her jewelry is the perfect blend of edgy modernism and rustic glam.  Which is right up my alley. 

I have a pair of these fantastic tassel earrings.  I got the long length in black.  They work at the ranch as well as out on the town with a pair of black leather pants and heels.

I got these fantastic white opal earrings on Saturday...

I want these...


And these in blue...

So sick!

My pictures are horrible so check out her jewelry here and her home store here. If you see something in my pictures that you want and you can't find it on ETSY let me know and I will put you in touch with her.  It may be part of her upcoming holiday collection. 

Thank you to the lovely L for leaving your babies with your hubby and joining me...

It was a fantastic I got to wear my new boots...
