Welcome to Friday Favorites, a series where we share our favorite decor, design inspiration, fashion finds, TV shows, recipes and more!
It’s such a weird time of year isn’t it? We’re dreaming of spring, yet some of us are still in the throes of winter. I don’t know about where you are, but our weather has been so crazy this year! Everything from “the storm of the century” (including hail and snow – in Southern Cal!) to daytime temps in the 40s!
So this week on Friday Favorites we’re going to talk ‘in between’ seasons! Things that will help you get through this last month before spring really settles in. (Fingers crossed!)
Before we get started, did you know you can shop all of my posts, both blog and Instagram, in one place? Simply download the free Like to Know It app (click here for Apple or here for Google phones). It’s easy to do and then you can find everything all in one place! Plus, I share things there that I don’t share here on the blog! Once you download the app, look for me, @maisondecinq, and follow me there! 🙂

THINGS I LOVE IN DESIGN/DECOR
Love this great kitchen remodel – wait until you see the before!
Another great idea for getting through the last of the season before spring comes? Faux flowers and branches. I adore this little lemon tree (sold out last year!) and these lemon branches would look great in a pretty vase. This greenery branch is my personal favorite and looks so real!
And I’m sharing a few fabulous Amazon finds! These sconces have great reviews and are under $100! (thinking of getting them for my powder room), I just ordered this classic zinc planter (amazing price – plus I saw it on Instagram and it looks so good!), and this wood bench would be beautiful on a porch or patio.
THINGS I’M WEARING/LOVING/WANTING
You know those cropped tweed Chanel-ish style jackets? They are back in a big way and I’m loving it! They’re so chic and easily dressed up or down. Plus they’re perfect for the spring!
This black one is perfection (and comes in 3 other colors), and I also like this black sweater version and this plaid black one (half off). And how pretty is this blue version or this blazer version in pink? And for something really unique, I adore this denim version!
THINGS I’M WATCHING/READING/LISTENING TO
Have you read anything by the author Taylor Jenkins Reid? She wrote The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo which I loved so when I heard another of her books was becoming a show, I knew I had to read it before it came out. Daisy Jones and the Six is based on a fictional rock band from the 1960s-1970s loosely based on Fleetwood Mac (who I also love!) It came out today – excited to see if it’s as good as the book!
THINGS I’M MAKING/EATING/DRINKING
As you know I’m a huge Ina Garten fan, and her Lasagna with Turkey Sausage is one of our absolute favorites (it has a twist that makes it so good!)
And if you missed it, this week I shared a Design Basics post all about decorating measurements – and how to get them right!
