Entertaining At Home With Rueda Verdejo Wine
2

Lauren-0006-Edit

Ever since moving into my one bedroom apartment on the Upper East Side, I have been entertaining constantly! I love having my girlfriends over for wine and treats. This past weekend I teamed up with a Spanish wine region, Rueda,  to host a fun wine-filled afternoon. Rueda is known for their refreshing Verdejo white wine and I have to admit, it’s delicious! If you like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, you will love Verdejo from Rueda. It’s vibrant and complex, yet effortlessly drinkable! In addition to having a few bottles of Oro de Castilla and Shaya Verdejo wine on hand, I also picked up some tea sandwiches, scones and sweet treats from Alice’s Tea Cup, an Upper East Side must-try. It definitely made for a sweet afternoon!

To help freshen up my space, I picked up a few of my favorite blooms to decorate my dining nook and bar cart. In case you didn’t know, cherry blossoms are insanely pretty this time of year. You can typically find cherry blossom branches for around $12 dollars a branch from your local florist! And in true lauren-nelson.com fashion, I also had white hydrangeas on hand to spruce up my bar cart.

With each new season, I like to switch up my dishes and dinnerware. I absolutely loved these pink floral dishes and these pink glasses from Villeroy & Boch. They matched perfectly with the cherry blossoms and looked oh-so-cute under the tea sandwiches.

If you’re planning to entertain at home any time soon, or just want a refreshing glass of white wine, make sure to look for Rueda in your wine store or order it directly from wine.com with the code “RUEDA” for a 10% discount! Cheers!! Xo. Lauren

My Favorite Items From Horchow

John-Robshaw-Lapis-Quilt-Studio-McGee

I have been shopping on Horchow for what seems like – forever! They carry some of my favorite brands including Jonathan Adler, John Robshaw, Ralph Lauren and so on. I have picked up numerous items from Horchow to-date from dinnerware to bath accessories to my couch! One of my favorite things about Horchow is they constantly do flash sales! So if you have your eye on a specific product, you could catch it on a surprise flash sale.

A few of my favorite items from Horchow!

I have been obsessed with this Jonathan Adler shower curtain for quite some time – need to pull the trigger!

My mom taught me you can never have too many white throw blankets. I like to use these on my white couch to make sure I don’t spill anything. #clutz

Ever since I moved to the Upper East side, I’ve been investing in mixed blue and white plates. Who said everything needs to match all the time?

Horchow has the best Ralph Lauren bar ware. How cute are these cocktail picks? Need them for my bar cart asap.

My next purchase from Horchow is most certainly going to be a John Robshaw quilt – I really want one of these to include in my bedroom reveal!

This white marble coffee table has been featured in Studio-McGee home tours and is definitely on my radar.

You know I love a good home tour! I came across Kristen Panitch Interiors and couldn’t help but sharw. Although this home tour is a little different than what I typically share around these parts but some of the rooms are to die for. Can we talk about the gold vanity in the bedroom? The bedroom with the matching headboard, bedding and wallpaper is pretty amazing! And the kitchen is going in my future home and I bet it will be going in yours as well! Enjoy! Xo. Lauren

Chloe Warner Designs A Traditional Yet Bold West Coast Home
1

chloe-warner-living-room

I came across this Hillsborough, California home designed by Chloe Warner this week on House Beautiful. I haven’t seen a home tour lately I thought has been worth sharing but this bold beauty is definitely one for the design files. Color infused, Chloe Warner used a mix of vibrant patterns throughout each and every room.

The dinning room has to be one of my favorites. Warner used over 200 yards of pink fabric for the drapes and created a double dinning space that is kid-proof yet perfect for hosting formal dinners and game nights. To help with consistency, Warner also used Stark Antelope carpet throughout the kitchen, dinning room and reading nook off of the kitchen. You can check out the full home tour right this way. Happy Tuesday! Xo. Lauren
