7 Gorgeous Plants From Ojai, CA That Will Inspire You

7 Gorgeous Plants From Ojai, CA That Will Inspire You │ Savannah Hayes

Earlier this month we snuck away for a few days to visit what can only be described as true paradise on earth: Ojai, California. This place. Is. Bananas. The small town nestled between mountains and the ocean exudes charm.

We stayed at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa (thank you, discounted weekday rate!) and one early morning I took a quiet walk around the grounds. Thanks to an overcast sky and some killer stucco architecture, I snapped a few pictures of the local flora on milky white backdrops.

Since we got home I cannot get these images out of my mind. The contrast of these sculptural, natural motifs on a pure, solid ground lends themselves so immediately to use in a pattern. I've been sketching and painting, using these images as reference. Stay tuned for...the Ojai collection?!

Architectural Digest Rounds Up Home Trends from NYNOW

Architectural Digest x Savannah Hayes

Just back from a (whirlwind) week in Manhattan where we exhibited at our first NYNOW show. It was totally WILD. I loved meeting so many great people: Instagram friends, shop owners, interior designers... It was awesome.

Hadley Keller from Architectural Digest stopped by our booth to chat all things print & color, and was kind enough to include us in a roundup of trends to watch! Take a look & see what you think.

Friday Finds / Outdoor Spaces & the Perfect Suede Clutch

Savannah Hayes Friday Finds / Outdoor Spaces & the Perfect Suede Clutch

Cheers to the weekend! It's been a great few days in the studio, working around the clock to prepare for next week's photo shoot. For this shoot, we're focusing on new fabric & pillow collections and introducing baby blankets! What are you up to this weekend? I'm picnicking with friends in our local park this evening, heading to a soccer game along the river tomorrow, and welcoming my best friend to town on Sunday!

Have a memorable weekend & enjoy the below.

1 FASHION / The new Manus x Machina exhibit at the Met looks absolutely stunning! Haute couture meets machine-made, even three-dimensional printing. A must see!

2 INSPIRATION / With this gorgeous weather, I can't get enough time outside. I love this roundup of welcoming yet stylish outdoor spaces.

3 SUEDE / This fold-over clutch in soft mauve suede is giving me all the feels. Pre-order, check!

4 INTERIORS/ This incredible home tour of a 1740s Charleston rowhouse is totally killer. With a unified palette throughout, it's glam and comfort all at once.

5 ENTERTAINING / I love a summer cocktail that's refreshing and gorgeous. This gin-based recipe is striking all the right chords!

6 THE NON-TRADITIONAL / In a platinum and diamond world, it can be so rad to see engagement rings that rock a little something unique

Friday Finds / Happy Donut Day & Off-the-Shoulder Fashion

Savannah Hayes Friday Finds / Happy Donut Day & Off-the-Shoulder Fashion

What a beautiful Friday! We've had quite the lovely week, weather-wise. Toby Ziegler the goldendoodle puppy is (finally!) fully vaccinated, so we took him on two long hikes in Frick Park. And this weekend our neighborhood farmers' market opens for the season! I'm hoping for lots of fresh corn & basil to complement the long summer nights on our front porch.

Have a gorgeous weekend & enjoy the below.

1 DECOR / These fiberglass shell chairs by Modernica are absolutely stunning & come in such a great variety of colors, you can find the perfect addition to any space.

2 FASHION/ Currently coveting all things off-the-shoulder. It's such a flattering and feminine silhouette that looks great on all body types. Particularly loving this washed striped version.

3 HEALTH / There are few things I take more seriously than sun protection! I don't leave home without the largest floppy hat & several tubes of sunscreen. Check out this great roundup of must-haves for the whole family.

4 INTERIORS/ I first saw the home tour of Danielle Moss (co-founder of The Everygirl) on Instagram & my jaw quite literally dropped. Room after room is sun-drenched, light and airy. Only one question remains: when can I move in?

5 ENTERTAINING / These two-ingredient donuts are the perfect way to celebrate National Donut Day & are so yummy and pretty I think we might just have to make them a regular entertaining go-to.

6 INSPIRATION / This geometric rug is so killer I want to see this pattern on everything! From tiles to wallpaper to pillows, it would look stunning on anything.
