The Wachs Mix: Just for Dad

Father’s Day is almost here and it’s time to shower our Dads with love and gratitude… and a gift or two! If you are still scratching your head and empty handed, that’s totally normal, I think we can all agree that shopping for our beloved boys is a tough one! So, I have curated another Wachs Mix for all of you default gift card givers. Let’s surprise him with a gift to remember!

  1. Who needs a recliner when this handsome seat exists? Chair & Ottoman by McGuire Furniture
  2. Dad will love setting the table with these Laguiole mixed bone steak knives!
  3. No man likes a warm beer! Yeti’s Colster is sure to keep his brew cold.
  4. Let Dad join the “it” crowd club and subscribe him to Bespoke Post! Fancy grooming kit, a Humidor filled with cigars and a set of trendy ties. He’ll be the coolest Dad on the block!
  5. If he’s a watch guy, this is the case for him. Matches Fashion has some dapper gift choices!
  6. Gone are the days of clunky wallets stuffed in back pockets, thin and sleek is the new thing! I love this leather card case from Jack Mason.

 

Get shopping! And a Happy Father’s Day to our guys!

The Wachs Mix: In Bloom Edition

THE WACHS MIX: IN BLOOM EDITION

As we breeze into April, I really feel like it’s time to stop and smell the flowers. No, I’m not referring to a sudden desire to get my green thumb on… I’m talking about taking my time for the small things. I feel a pretty wonderful month coming on and I want to savor every minute. Therefore, taking time to stop and smell the flowers.

We are in the midst of Spring and all this flower smelling has me feeling inspired by blooms! They are not just everywhere in nature during this time of year, they are also showing up in the glossies – home and fashion. So, April’s Wachs Mix is blooming pretty!

Shopping local for bouquets in brown paper wrapping. A burst of light. The only time when walking on flowers is a must. Delicate glass cacti – I’ll take all three! Inspiring reading – a must have subscription. Up close and personal on a bronze stand… so handsome. Tropical inspired fabric, I’ll take many yards please! A sweet bone inlay accent table, just begging for a chair to sit with. And last but not least, these elegant botanical prints – need or want?

 

1. A beautiful bouquet from Camelback Flowershop/ 2. Small Copper Pendant Light Fixture by Cyan on Candelabra  / 3. Hand-knotted Tibetan Rug by Knots Rugs on 1st Dibs / 4. Bone Inlay Accent Table by Made Goods/ 5. The inspiring Flower Magazine / 6. 1960’s Magnifying Glass on Brass Stand on One Kings Lane / 7. Decorative Barrel Cactus from Formations/ 8.

For my those who haven’t heard, The Wachs Mix is a feature in our monthly newsletter, if you have yet to join the list of fabulous readers… here’s your chance. And because I already love you I’m sharing some sweet tips on texturing.

The Wachs Mix: Greenery Edition

THE WACHS MIX: GREENERY EDITION

This month I gathered a handful of items that have me feeling green with envy for the fact that they are not in my shopping cart already.

Malachite obelisks and a gem encrusted bauble box. Fabric adorned by ferns, sophisticated table lighting and contemporary wall art. Woo your dinner guests with grand crystal goblets! That marbled malachite ring, though! A Moroccan magic carpet, juicy bouquet of succulents, and My Oh My! that Mid-Century Modern accent chair.
