Café au lait

Nothing warms me up on a chilly fall day quite like a steaming cup of coffee. So as an ode to my favorite beverage, I’ve created a little round up of handmade and vintage goodies in honor of this creamy smooth concoction. Café au lait anyone?

I’m really loving the scarf and lamp. Now that it’s getting colder the scarf would be a nice addition to my collection.

I really like the combination of white and brown, especially wood, so this is right up my alley. Lovely finds!


What a sweet compilation…and yes, I want coffee now!

I love that cafe au lait color…so creamy and warm, and not boring tan. I want to wrap myself up in all of these!


Gorgeous! There’s something so calming about this color palette– and let me tell you, I need calming!
