Love Notes

Happy Friday! We’re a little late getting this post up (busy day!) but we’re really trying our best to stick to the posting schedule! Our goal is to have at least three or four posts up a week and a Love Notes post up every Friday. This one’s coming in just under the wire, but I’ll count it as a success! :)

First up, did you see Emily Henderson’s dorm inspired post? We were so excited to see some Jenny’s Print Shop prints featured in her collage wall! I love what Emily and her team did here! The post is full of great tips if you are heading off to college, or if you are just trying to channel your inner 18 year old :). How many Print Shop prints can you spot?

Speaking of the shop, this week are are retiring four more prints to make room for four new prints that will hit the shop next Friday. Some of you have seen the sneak peeks on my stories and you know they are going to be good!! :)

We’ll be saying goodbye for good to Prickly Pear, Lines, Carnival and BQE and you know what that means – they’ve all been dropped to $8 in the shop. Grab ’em before they’re gone for good! Some people have mentioned that they buy the download even if they don’t have a current place for the print, just so they can have the option to print down the road.

I also wanted to mention that Michael’s is running a sale on frames right now and everyone’s favorite 24×36 inch frames are only $16 instead of $50! If you use Kinkos or Staples to get an Engineer Print for about $6, you are getting yourself a HUGE piece of art for not a lot of money! I think BQE and ANN STREET and both of Lynne’s floral abstracts look especially amazing as Engineer Prints.

Lots of you have DMed me to ask about my eye makeup when I do Stories so I thought I’d post the products and routine for you here. I am all about cheap makeup that you can get at Target (except for my expensive-but-worth-it sunscreen foundation). I also need my makeup routine to be fast – like five minutes max start to finish. I’ve used this exact same covergirl eyeliner and mascara since high school! I just put eyeliner (Espresso color) on my top lash line and then use a small brush to soften and smudge the line. And then I run that same brush (that now has some of the eyeliner makeup on it) along my lower lash line. Two coats of mascara in brown-black (not the waterproof kind), AND THAT’S IT. So, so easy. It lasts all day but comes off easily at night. I tried switching to fancy makeup at one point and I feel like the $45 eyeliner was melting off my face by 2pm, so I ran back to my CG with open arms. :)

Speaking of DMs on Instagram! I got approximately 34,276 messages this week that Shea McGee and I were wearing the same top on the same day on Stories. We both were cracking up at how many people were letting us know. :) It IS a cute shirt though, right!?

I got a new bag too when I bought the top and I’m OBSESSED with the color of the leather! It is the perfect size and has the cutest double drawstrings on either side that make the bag super easy to access. I think it’s going to be a great bag for fall!

We have started buying stuff for staging the house and grabbed two of these gorgeous marble side tables that are on sale right now! The metal base is obviously amazing and the top is a really pretty marble! But I especially love the top is a generous size. You can easily fit a table lamp, small vase or planter and a stack of books. It’s an amazing deal for under $100!

And this it for us this week, friends! I hope you’re loving the Love Notes posts as much as we are. Any special requests for us?

DIY Tassel & Pom Pom Basket

We recently got this amazing, MASSIVE fiddle leaf fig tree for the studio at a local nursery. I knew we wanted to use a basket for the planter because I love the texture and baskets are so much more affordable than huge planters.  If you’re looking for a fun and simple craft project to liven up your basket planter or to drape on your mantle or tree around the holidays, today’s tutorial is just for you!

We bought a pack of these tassels and a pack of these as well. It was nice to mix the two sets for variation in size and color. They’re affordable and you’ll have enough to make quite a few of these little tassel garlands!

81xnCM83VWL._SL1000_34 piece tassels

718qOO6AUyL._SL1000_16 piece tassels

You will also need a ball of yarn and yarn needles. We used a cream color, but feel free to use any color you’d like!

yarn needles  //  yarn

Start by laying out your tassels to get the color combination you’d like. This will make it so much easier when you go to start assembling them! I recommend using about 5-10 tassels per bunch, but you can adjust the amount based on the size of your basket.

Step1

Next, you will want to cut about a 2ft piece of yarn. Tie a knot at one end and then thread your yarn needle onto the other end.

Step2

Step3

Thread your first tassel onto your yarn and then tie a knot to keep it in place. Continue on as you work your way through the tassels you picked out. You will want to separate them by about 1/2 inch, tying a knot to secure each one. If you want the tassels to be a little more sparse, you can space them out more. Just be consistent about your spacing!

Step4

Step5

When you finish, they should look like this! Now just pick them up by the top knot and they should all just fall naturally into place!

Step6

Next up is the pom poms. These are super fun and simple to make! We are already dreaming up other ways we can incorporate these into our homes. (A Christmas tree garland is FOR SURE in the works this year!)

PomPom1

We used this super thick yarn to give them a really full texture. You can use a regular yarn, but the pom poms won’t turn out quite as fluffy.

We already had some of these super cool pom pom makers, but we were able to find a few similar versions online. These things are the best! It might take one or two tries to get used to how it works, but once you figure it out you will be a pom pom making machine!!

The instructions may vary a tad depending on which kind you get, but essentially you wrap your yarn around the tool, tie it off, then trim the ends and voila, pom poms!!!

IMG_6179

We used eight pom poms for this project in varying sizes. You can tie your pom poms together like we did, or hang them off the basket individually. It’s hard to make these not look cute!

We simply took all of our strands and tied them around them around one of the handles of our basket. If your basket doesn’t have handles you could use hot glue to attach them to the inside of the basket and have then drape over the side.

There are bunch of great baskets that can be used as planters out there. Below are some of our favorites!

Trying this DIY? Don’t be afraid to go crazy with the colors! We would love to see what kind of combinations you come up with! Tag @juniper_studio in your pictures!

P.S. Having trouble keeping your fiddle leaf fig alive? (you’re not alone…) When I bought this new tree, I told the nursery owner I have a terrible track record for killing these trees. He handed me a bottle of this liquid plant food and said it would be a game-changer! We have been watering our giant tree religiously with this concentrate and our tree has stayed happy and perky! So far so good. Maybe I have reversed the curse?

P.P.S. Still think even our super magical plant food won’t keep your fiddle alive? Check back next week for a full round-up of faux plants, including a few fiddles! :) We found some great ones!

UPDATE—- A lot of you have been asking about how we care for our fiddle leaf fig! We water it once a week with this plant food and rotate it each time. This helps make sure that it’s receiving an even amount of sunlight. The instructions on the plant food call for 2-4 teaspoons per gallon of water. We have a gallon container that we make up and use about 1/3 of it each time we water. Super easy!! The water will run through the plant and pool on the floor. Luckily for us we have concrete floors so this isn’t an issue, but if you are concerned about water getting on your floor we would recommend bringing your plant outside or into your bathtub/shower when watering. Hope this helps!!! Let me know if you have any more questions!!

Leather Sofas

LeatherSofa

Last week we posted our orthodontist office reveal and we got a bunch of questions about the leather sofa we used in the space. This one was custom made from Monarch Sofas, but it got us thinking about all of the other amazing leather sofas readily available online! We are especially loving camel right now, but there are so many great options in mid-tone brown, black and even gray. Here are some projects we’ve done in the last year using leather sofas and our round up of currently-available favorites!

Love Notes

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Friday! Here we are again! This week we are releasing four new prints and they all have a moodier, Pacific Northwest feel to them, which I know a lot of you were asking for. These new prints also play really well off of each other and would look great grouped together in a gallery wall (another thing so many of you have been asking for!).  :)

Also a big heads up – In two weeks we will be raising the prices of just our special artist collaboration prints from $15 to $20 – all of my own originals (the bulk of the shop) will stay at the $15 price. This will help us to better support our contributing artists, (so they will want to share some of their best work with us!). Beth Allen is releasing a second abstract with us this week (this beauty is called AUGUST) and it will be at the $15 price for the next two weeks before getting bumped up to the new artist’s pricing – so snag it while it’s heavily discounted! :)

ASPENS

ASPENS is another new print, and I can’t tell you how much I love this one. I took this photo in one of my favorite places – a part of our state that feels completely secret and totally removed from the world. It is insanely remote and quiet and peaceful and I hope this print conveys that feeling to you too!

FERNS

FERNS is going to be so helpful for those of you looking to round out your gallery wall collections! That bright pop of green color and all the small scale texture in those beautiful little leaves! You will love the fine details in this one.

WATER

WATER was taken at sunset on a little inlet off Malibu beach in California. I’m imagining this one blown up REALLY HUGE for over a fireplace or a sofa. It really could work so well in any space! The colors are that perfect spot between moody and peaceful. Have I already picked a favorite print? Because this one is also my favorite. :)

I’m so excited that these are completely different from our other prints! I hope you LOVE them as much as I do!! Now, which one(s) is your favorite??

______________________

I have been getting a lot of questions about my hair and how I style it. I hope it wasn’t as awkward to read that last sentence as it was to write it. :) :) I figured rather than spend my office hours individually responding to your DMs about my hair and makeup, I could throw a couple of my (amateur) tips into our Love Notes posts? Well, here goes nothing!

IMG_4746

My #1 top hair tip (besides investing in a REALLY good cut and color once a quarter – I go to Chrissy at Habit Salon in Gilbert) is USE THIS DRY SHAMPOO! It has been my secret weapon for about five years now and allows me to go four or five days between washings and my hair has never been longer or healthier (despite all the coloring Chrissy does to it!:) It’s a powder, so I put some in my hands and rub it all through my roots before I go to bed and when I wake up in the morning, I just run my favorite (very cheap, very good) hairbrush through my hair a few times and I’m all ready to go!

I use this (also very cheap) 1.5″ barrel curling iron to curl my hair the day I wash it and with the help of the blow pro dry shampoo, my loose curls (truly) stay for days! This routine has saved me SO MUCH TIME over the years! And I actually like my hair on days two and three the best anyway! :) Days four and five start to get a little rough and that’s when I use my French Luxe tortoise clips that so many of you have asked about, to hold my hair back in two braids or to the side with a far side part. I also keep this amazing-smelling spray dry shampoo around to give my hair a little texture if it needs it when my hair is freshly washed and almost too-clean/soft!

IMG_5958

The best dry shampoo you will ever find  //  tortoise hair pins  //  1.5″ curling iron  (I like this better than a curl stick!) //  

Oribe hairspray (smells like heaven)  //  Treseme hairspray  (I know people claim Elnett is the best, but I think this one is!) //  brush  (safely detangles and the bristles add shine!)  //  shampoo & conditioner (Chrissy recommended this brand to me. Yes, it is pricier, but when you’re only washing your hair twice a week, it lasts FOREVER and has literally changed the look and feel of my hair. So much less straw-like now! :)

We have been eyeing these chairs from Urban Outfitters that Sarah Sherman Samuel used in her a-frame living room makeover and they are finally back in stock!!! We just grabbed 2 for the Gentry House. You should snag a pair up ASAP because these will go fast!!

We are working on our new studio kitchenette and things are really starting to come together! Don’t worry – I’ve got a big post coming up with all the details! :) We are working with Lucent Lightshop to design a small lighting line together. We had a meeting about it a few weeks ago, where we shared inspiration images and talked sizes and finishes. It’s all going to be SO good you guys! One of the images that we talked a lot about was this one from the Ostrich Farm restaurant in LA. We are working on something similar for our studio kitchen, where the bulb is exposed and two sconces are mounted right next to each other. I can’t wait for this to start coming together! :)

Did you get your new IKEA catalog in the mail?? We just got ours and we are bookmarking all of our favorite new things!

BRWD80F996754CB_000035

This is such a great wall unit, especially for the price!! It is totally customizable too, which is great if you have a huge blank wall that needs filling up!

How good are the lines on this mirror?? It also comes in a standing floor version, but the small one would be especially pretty on a vanity.

BRWD80F996754CB_000036

I am loving some of these wood accents and those blue watercolor plates! Going to have to go check those out in person!

BRWD80F996754CB_000038

We still love this sideboard and have considered using them in the studio. The wood tone is so beautiful in person! Have you seen it?

And of course we can’t forget to mention our absolute favorite new item, this rattan cabinet. We are still patiently waiting for our local store to get some back in stock…
