May 15th Restock Look Book

Here is a little visual story for our next restock! There are SO many ways to use our market baskets and I know that shopping online it can be tough to visualize. I hope this gives you an idea of some of the possibilities! You can also read about my vision for the Spring/Summer Collection and the heart behind it below. 

Many of you may not know that travel has always been a huge part of my life. My first international excursion was at 13 and since then I've been blessed to visit 12 different countries. I actually started Fernweh Home a bit over a year ago right after traveling to Germany. Fernweh is a German word meaning wanderlust, a desire to travel or a longing for far off places. There is little else more inspiring to me that exploring new places and I became captivated by the idea of bringing a little bit of this feeling into my day to day. My mission with this little business is to provide beautiful, handcrafted goods from around the globe to satisfy the adventurer in you. Basically, I want to bring a little Fernweh into your home and hopefully your life.

This Spring/Summer I wanted to connect you all with two of my current obsessions...Moroccan Market Baskets and beautiful Turkish towels. Each basket is handmade by highly skilled craftsmen in a small, family artisanal workshop in Morocco and is ethically handwoven from 100% palm leaf from the doum plant. This plant grows in rural areas of Morocco and is locally harvested. The craftsmen design these baskets to have unique character and detail and they will continue to age beautifully with time and use!

A great eco friendly alternative to the plastic bag, the Everly basket has an endless possibility of uses! Carry it as classic shopping basket at the farmers market; use it as a beautiful storage option at home; fill with fresh fruits and flowers; even as a functional boho-chic purse!

I hope you all love these as much as I do!

the Everly Market Basket (Featured Below) and 4 new towel designs will go live Monday, May 15th at 6pm EST. We will also have a small restock of the Willow and Eden Market Baskets!

3 Ways to style Reclaimed Wood Triangles

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.
— William Morris

Living in a small space can be challenging...but, it can also be a great opportunity to clear out the clutter and force you to think about what you really want and need. When you don't have endless square footage to play with it forces you to get creative! Rather than having all my decor out at once, I'm constantly switching things up and cycling things in and out of my bedroom. This keeps the space feeling fresh. One thing people always comment on after looking at my Instagram is that they can't believe most of the photos are taken in my room because it always look so different. It's amazing how a few small styling tricks can totally change the entire look and vibe...no paint or new purchases necessary!

If your space feels like it's in a rut but you don't want blow the bank here are a few ideas:
1) Move your furniture around! This is probably obvious but this simple step can open up new possibilities and ignite your creativity.

2) Add or remove throws and pillows to give focus to different colors.

3) Switch up which items are on you bedside table, dresser, shelves etc. Simple vignettes add a lot of impact to the room.

4) Add seasonally appropriate touches. Something I do around the spring is pick wildflowers or cut fresh branches off the trees and stick them in various jars and bottles. This is also a great idea for free centerpieces. 

5) Change your statement or focal pieces. Something you notice from looking at my Instagram is that I have a large blank wall above my bed that is always sporting something new. One week it'll be an old, thrifted window, the next a large wall hanging, the next a set of shelves...I've even had a blanket hanging behind the headboard! Try looking around your home and seeing what you could relocate...if nothing there is inspiring you hit your local thrift store! I've found amazing pieces for as little as $10!

Since this is something I get asked about so much I though I'd write some posts highlighting different ways small changes can make a big difference! Today, I'm showing you 3 ways to style our Reclaimed Wood Triangle Shelves! This is great example of how minor changes make a big difference!

Rustic Chic Christmas Decor Inspiration With Reclaimed Wood Breakfast Tray

Hi Friends! I am not what you would call an aspiring blogger, just a gal who loves to take photos and compulsively decorate and style (and restyle again) every single space I come in contact with. This all started when I was a little girl and would spend literally hours setting up houses for my Barbies and American Girl Dolls (Yes, I was that child). I had all the American Girl Doll furniture and eventually started making my own decorations. I would meticulously set up rooms for each doll based on the "style" and "personality" I was sure each one had. Since starting my own business and line of home decor items, this habit has taken on a new meaning. I love being able to display my items in an actual home, styled in a way that makes sense to my customers. Since I have WAY too much fun with each shoot, I use one photo for Instagram and then end up with with a copious amount of detail shots that I never do anything with. Recently I had a sweet friend suggest that I make a Home Decor Blog! So, I will now be occasionally posting photo heavy posts that display some products from own line + thrifted finds and other small shops that I love! ...maybe even some occasional DIY!

For this first post here is some snaps of living room decorated for the Holidays featuring one of my reclaimed wood breakfast trays! You can click here to purchase the tray.

Our home, like our Christmas tree, tends to be an eclectic mix of old and new, rustic and modern. For example the books I have styled on the tray are actually gifts from either my mother's grandmother or my grandfather who was a carpenter and antique dealer. The large glass bottle that we've filled with Christmas lights was a thrifted find, and many of our knick knacks are vintage, antique or simply found at random yard sales or the local Goodwill. I get SO excited about these types of pieces that have character, soul, and a story. Pair them with some fun, modern prints and colors (like our pillows and footstool) and I think you can really create a space that feels special and unique but also liveable...not like your home is a museum. 

The metal wall art is from Hobby Lobby, the coffee table from Pier 1 Imports and the pillows and throws are a mix from all over! Click here to purchase the beautiful cream turkish throw from a small shop I adore called Mae Woven. You can't really see the detail in these photos but the pinecones were a really fun DIY I did for some Holiday Markets. Simply collect some pinecones, lightly spray with silver or gold spray paint (the glitter spray paint is especially pretty!) arrange in a glass bowl, terrarium, mason jars, etc....and viola! Simple and budget friendly. 

As stated before I am by no means a professional blogger (and I'm 100% sure I never will be) but I LOVE all the color tones, textures and cozy vibes of these photos. Looking at them makes me feel happy and inspired and I hope they do the same for you! Thanks for reading! You can give us a follow on instagram at @fernwehhome and share any thoughts or questions you may have!
