Friday Favorites – Weekly Inspiration

Welcome to Friday Favorites, a series where we share our favorite decor, design inspiration, fashion finds, TV shows, recipes and more!

Friends! I’m so excited to share that our new site is live!! After months of planning, designing, and tweaking, the all new Maison de Cinq site is here!

For me, this is kind of the best day ever! I put so much of my heart into this blog, so having it now reflect more of my personality and my aesthetic makes me so happy. Also, I’m hoping with the re-design that you enjoy it more and find it easier to find the things you’re looking for.

New on the home page are special sections dedicated to Design, Seasonal posts, Shopping, and more. There are also helpful sections with What’s Trending, the Latest Blog Posts, or you can Browse by Category. 

I hope after you read Friday Favorites today you’ll go back and take a look around, click on some things, and explore a little!

THINGS I LOVE IN DESIGN/DECOR

Brooke Giannetti is one of my favorite designers, and this is one of my favorite projects of hers. The indoor/outdoor feel of this house is incredible!

Let’s talk fall! One of my favorite vases is this terracotta one I bought last year. It’s beautiful all year, but the color makes it especially wonderful for fall, and the bowl version (which I love) is on major sale!

A few other fab fall finds that are on sale at PB: love this faux Aspen tree branch, this adorable white pumpkin wreath, and this wheat stalk which is so versatile for fall decorating and entertaining.

Did you know Shea McGee has a book now? It just released this week and I already ordered it! You can order it on her site, but it’s 30% less on Amazon. And when I was perusing McGee, I saw these gorgeous fabric boxes. Love them – and I think they’d be great just about anywhere!

Random finds: This fall doormat is adorable and on sale and I really like this gorgeous botanical print. It’s so unique, and a great price for the size.

Last week’s best sellers: this gorgeous wreath (on sale) and these adorable maple leaf plates.

 

THINGS I’M WEARING/LOVING/WANTING

Totally crushing on Ann Taylor lately, and right now almost the whole site is 45% off! Loving their shoes: this pump is so pretty and on-trend with the kitten heel, and how adorable are these plaid flats?! 

Also loving this gorgeous double-breasted faux-leather jacket, and these amazing faux leather pants (above) (the brown is so good!)

I’ve shared Quince with you before but in case you missed it, they have the best prices on cashmere and silk pieces anywhere. And now, they’ve added leather! 

I never did get a leather jacket last year, so I ordered this one (fingers crossed!) I like that it’s a softer version of a motorcycle jacket. This would be another good option that’s interesting and different.

Or if you prefer a true motorcycle jacket, theirs is a classic style. And of course, their $50 cashmere sweater is what put them on the map (they have lots of color options and other styles, too). But maybe my favorite find of theirs is the silk slip skirt. It’s a dead ringer for the spendy Vince version for a fraction of the price (I have it in grey and cream, and the burgundy would be gorgeous for the holidays!)

Last week’s best sellers: this cute striped mock-neck sweater (on sale) and this great bucket handbag.

 

THINGS I’M WATCHING/READING/LISTENING TO

We started a new show last week called Fleischman is in Trouble. Have you heard of it? We had not but ended up loving it. It’s about a divorced couple where the wife leaves the children with the husband for the weekend, only to never show up again. We also see him reconnecting with college friends, navigating raising kids alone, and having lots of internet dating sex. The acting and writing are so good, and though it’s billed as a comedy, I thought it had lots of insight and depth into marriage and middle age.

*Fair warning – there is a lot of sex in the first few episodes, however, if you stick it out, that basically goes away and the rest is well worth it!

 

THINGS I’M MAKING/EATING/DRINKING

This Crockpot Broccoli Cheddar Chicken (above) looks easy and so yummy!
