Human House Harvey, forest green

I’ve been traveling through the South for the past week and am truly in awe of the nature that surrounds this region of the country. From the changing foliage and glistening streams, to the towering pines and wild flowers, the South just has a way of captivating the senses. On my way up through North…

10 Great Dog Coats + DIY Projects

Last weekend I found myself fishing around in my wallet for money to pay for Hope’s first winter sweater. I never thought I’d actually own a dog, let alone buy clothes for one, so to look in my hallway and see a fair isle dog sweater next to my own is a little surreal. That…

Human/House/Harvey: Green

Human House Harvey, green

My favorite color is green — always has been and probably always will be. When I was a kid, I wanted everything in green: pens, lollipops, clothes, my bedroom walls. As I’ve grown, my love for the color has slowly transformed into a love of nature and all that is fresh and alive around us….

Pet Portaits by Sian Keegan

I’ve been so excited about this month’s theme (Family + Pets) because it gives me a chance to shamelessly indulge in my love of animals. Aside from photos on my fridge, I’ve never really kept portraits or photographs around my house. I have artwork on my walls, but I tend to keep photographs of friends…

Human/House/Harvey: Ikat

Human House Harvey, ikat

A bold pattern like an ikat print can truly be the difference between bland and fab. So when I’m stuck in a design conundrum, I immediately turn to a pattern. The ikat is currently rising in the ranks of my favorite patterns. Both bold and artistic, I love how this pattern allows for so many variations and color palettes. It’s…

Human/House/Harvey: Studs

Always one to favor rugged over delicate, I’ve been known to own a studded design from time to time. There’s just something about a metal stud that attracts my eye and adds a quality detail to any piece. Yes, you can go overboard, but when done right, a stud can take a design from dull…

Human/House/Harvey: Animal Print

HHH_animal-print

A good pattern can spice up any look, and there is nothing more classic (and versatile) than an animal print. I remember being gifted my first faux-fur leopard-print jacket one year and wearing it to fringes. It was a favorite and will always be a memorable staple from my wardrobe’s past. Today, I think I…

Human/House/Harvey: Ceramic

HHH_ceramic

It seems I’m having a love affair with ceramics of late. Ceramic vases, ceramic candle holders, ceramic measuring cups . . . you name it, I have it (or at least I want it) in ceramic form. Something about the weight, texture and style of ceramic goods makes me giddy, so I thought I’d share a few…

Human/House/Harvey: Rustic

HHH_rustic

This time of year makes me yearn for a rustic, scenic fall-cabin setting: scents of cinnamon and vanilla, distressed leather and cozy hot cider-drinking sessions on the couch (sigh). To appease these harvest cravings, I’ve decided to do a little online hunting for me, my home and my pup. — Stephanie HUMAN — I’ve always dreamed of distressing…

Human/House/Harvey: Sparkle

human house harvey, sparkle

Everyone needs a little sparkle in their life.  While I am not the biggest fan of the bling, I will admit that I fall for the occasional shiny bauble from time to time.  Whether it is a piece of jewelry flare or a shimmering wardrobe piece, I have to infuse a bit of glam into…

Human/House/Harvey: Plaid

human house harvey, plaid

Growing up in the Catholic school system, I became used to having plaid in my everyday wardrobe. While at first I hated it (I was a bit of a rebel without a cause back then), I slowly began to accept the traditional tartan look and have actually come to love it, in all aspects of…

Human/House/Harvey: Geometric

HHH_geometric

Geometry was my favorite math subject in high school. For some reason, I could totally comprehend the way lines and angles came together to create perfectly formed shapes. Today, that love of shapes has evolved into a passion for geometric design. So I’ve decided to round up some of my favorite geometric items for myself,…

Human/House/Harvey: Stainless Steel

HHH_stainless-steel

Without fail, whenever I think of stainless steel, my thoughts wander to visions of professional kitchens and pristine environments. But even though stainless steel is typically associated with sterile imagery, I think that when paired with the right decor and accessories, the stainless steel look can have a very stylish effect. I would love to add…

Human/House/Harvey: Blue Patterns

human/house/harvey blue pattern

I’ve always been a solids girl: solid rugs, solid sweaters, solid bedding. There are, however, occasional moments when I find a pattern that I can’t resist. As of late, I have been riding on the blue train and am loving a lot of the blue-patterned items I am noticing. So for today’s Human/House/Harvey, I have rounded…

new: see scout sleep

I’ve got pets on the brain right now, so these new collars and leashes from See Scout Sleep are calling my name. Each piece is made from 100% hemp webbing, and the patterns are nylon ribbons that are woven in Tennessee. As much as I love these new geometric patterns, I think I love the…
