Joni Loves : June 2013

Joni's Loves Header

1 - Color Scheme

I love the color of these doors on this home on Lake Summit, NC.  It reminds me of a color I selected for the Palmetto Bluff post office (see insets).  We are using this color combination for a traditional cottage there now.  I will share photos when it is complete!

2 - Africa Food Truck

We saw these impressive food vendors in Ghana.

3 - Henri Bendel Bag

I spotted this brown and white laser cut barrel bag at Henri Bendel in New York City.  It is very similar to the one I am currently carrying!

4 - Ivanka Trump Store

Also while in New York I went to Ivanka Trumps Flagship Boutique and Bridal Salon with my daughters Grace and Sarah.  What a unique space.

5 - Dock Dining

We took this silly picture of my pug while eating on the dock one night. It is too cute not to share.

I hope you are having a great summer!

Kente Cloth 1

On a recent trip to Ghana I bought Kente cloth. I had pillows made and a chair recovered with the fabric for my home. Kente cloth is full of history and meaning. Read more about Kente cloth here.

La Fonte 2

This is a bathroom from our project, Castello di Casole, in Italy. I love the juxtaposing elements of the contemporary Bisazza tile with the old world Tuscan materials of stone and wooden beams.

June Pug 3

My pug wearing emerald, the Pantone Color of the Year!

Two Girls in Avignon 4

These are AMAZING hand painted linen panels I found at NYIGF. The panels, which look like old charcoal sketches of Paris, can be used for shower curtains, drapery, headboard walls, etc.

Steamboat Ice Castle 5

The Steamboat Ice Castle is an amazing structure of ice and turquoise-colored tunnels that I was able to explore with my family this winter. Definitely a must see attraction if you are in Steamboat Springs, CO.

It’s a Ruff Life at J Banks

When we received shipments of adorable new pet items for our retail store, we felt that the best way to share them would be to mix in a few (okay, more than a few) pictures of our favorite four-legged friends.

Dog food containers need not be bulky or unsightly. We love these large canisters by Harry Barker.

Beaufort (Laura Page)

P-Nut ‘PVP’ (Deb Van Plew)

Adorable doggy raincoats that zip up and store in the pouch built into the back.

Dixie (Cathy Duane)

Dixie (Check out the champagne bottle and high heel toys from J Banks Retail)

These ‘good dog’ buckets come with tennis balls!

Daisy and June Pug (Joni Vanderslice)

…and dog toys!

Finlay and Bree (Jenny Ladutko)

Sparta (Doris Gilch)

We have new dog bowls in fresh fun designs.

Sassy Pants (Janet Perry)

Jake (Shelley Wilkins)

Nautical collars are perfect for any beach or boat loving dog.

Penny (Jennifer Stewart)

Waldo and Norman (Kristin Magowitz)

Wally (the woven dog) is now standing guard by the door (and he may even be modeling one of our new raincoats).

Avenger (Lisa Whitley)

Miller (Heather Lemieux)

Reese and Woodford (Tia Kilduff)

Sailor (Marianna Barbrey)

We have lots of collars and leashes in different sizes and colors.
