There's not a thing about Hable Construction's new Cayenne Birds Wheat Linen Pillow ($130) that I don't adore. From the Thomas Paul-esque pattern to the hand-printed and hand-sewn material to the organically inspired colors, it's utterly charming. Its smart bird pattern is simple enough for a modern home but exhibits enough folksy flair for a country cottage as well. Its stuffer is made of feather and duck down too, making it a comfy accessory for an oft-used reading chair. And, you know I can't resist a good bird . . .
One surefire way to hold onto Summer, even after it's bid you adieu, is to introduce accents with a subtle, beachy motif into your home. Just because the leaves may be turning, and you're keeping an extra layer handy when you leave the house, doesn't mean you can't have a reminder of Summer close to home. The Hable Sand Dollar Quilt ($128 -$134) and Sham ($14) will prolong the season with their cheerful, but muted, turquoise and green tones and sand-dollar motif, whilst keeping you warm. And, on sale, they'll do so without breaking the bank. If you're the type who likes to inject warm tones into your home come Fall, consider snatching these up and saving them for the Spring. Better safe than sorry!
In the current issue of O at Home, actress Jennifer Carpenter shares photos of her Laurel Canyon home, which was redecorated by Jennifer's friend Ariel Ashe, an interior designer with the firm Ashe + Leandro.
While I loved the entire home design, my eyes kept coming back to this cool tipi in Jennifer's backyard. In the article, Jennifer admits, "That was my idea. I always wanted a yurt."
When I was growing up, my family used a traditional tipi as an alternative structure for camping on our land, and I can vouch for their comfort. Although a traditional tipi would look too hippie in Jennifer's colorful, modern space, the updated tipi, which uses the Hable Construction Big Beads outdoor fabric in Java, is absolutely perfect.

Soon after I became pregnant every parent I know started sharing their secrets, namely: kids accumulate a lot of stuff!
Boy were they right. I immediately began collecting toy bins and baskets to make up for the lack of closet space in our house.
I'm a big fan of creative storage and convenient toy boxes, but recently fell in love with the Hable Construction Bushel Baskets, $260 to $275. They are on the pricey side, but offer a toy box in a beautiful, design conscious package.
For the past six years, Hable Construction, the practical yet stylish textile troupe, has worked with Garnet Hill to create an exclusive holiday program for the mail-order catalog. This year, their collaboration expanded to include more holiday items than ever. Once holiday gift wrap, tree skirts, and felt appliqué Christmas stockings lost their relevance, it was evident that Garnet Hill shoppers were still hungry for Hable. So, Hable designed several exclusive collections of bedding and pillow covers to serve sensible and whimsical decorators year round. I'm loving the airy, beachy ambiance of their sand-dollar percale sheets, and the strié of sage and blue stripes in their pillow cover collection. Take a peek at what they've got in store via the widget below.
