FOUND DESIGN // WHERE ANTHROPOLOGIE MEETS POTTERY BARN

There’s a new store in town called Found. Appropriately named, because the minute I walked into this store I thought to myself. “I found it!” I found the most inspiring home & decor store that I’ve stepped into in a long time. Found Design is like Pottery Barn meets Anthropologie. It’s rustic. It’s cool. It’s modern. Best of all, it’s filled with items that I want in my home. Just take a look!

Just look at this wallpaper! I want it so badly. It would be perfect for a home office or even a dining room. Am I right? I literally walked around this store and said, “I want that. I want that. I really want that. Ooooh, that would look so good in my house.” The store just opened in Chandler (Ray & Chandler Rd.) about 2 weeks ago so if you live in the area, you’ll have to check it out.

Now do you see what I mean? The store is beautiful. There is an area to the left, right when you walk in, that displays merchandise that’s a bit more modern. But as you can see from my lens, I was drawn to their rustic home decor. Kind of makes you want to host a dinner party, doesn’t it?

“A perfectly kept house is the sign of a misspent life.” Why, thank you little book for giving me the reassurance I need that my house (which looks more like a kids toy store these days) is indeed proof that we are having fun around here.

I hope you enjoyed this little photo tour. If you’re an interior designer, decorator, home entertainer or just someone who loves pretty things, I’m sure you can appreciate why I got so inspired today. Make sure you stop in and check out Found Design Co. If you can’t make it in, you can find them online (here). We’ve got to support our local shops.

The Local Hat: Arizona Spring Training

Have you been? Attending a Spring Training baseball game is a favorite pastime of locals and visitors alike. March brings perfect weather to kick back, relax and see some of your favorite teams play. We went today and it was h-o-t! If you go, don’t forget the Spring training essentials: cash + sunscreen. Two things I didn’t have.

The Weekend Hat: Farmers Market

We always find treasures at the Farmers Market – usually found at a vendor’s cart that peeks Kelsey’s interest the most. Typically, Kelsey’s favorite cart is filled with gelato but today it was “Stinkin’ Cute Soap“. The soaps were $5/ bar and were made in nearly every color and flavor you could imagine. What flavor did she choose? Why the hot pink and zebra one, of course.

Picking out “the pink one” for Kelsey.

I was tempted to buy more soaps, wrap them in twine, and then give them away as Christmas gifts. How perfect for teacher’s gifts, no?

Hey, Grandma, say, “Cheese”.

 $.40/ lb and she wants the largest one they have. Figures.
