Dress Up in Branch

Good morning! Got some new goodies available at Branch- especially cute is our new collection of dresses. New styles galore, and I am especially smitten with the new t-shirt dress which is perfect for the fall- just throw on some tights and a big sweater and you are ready for the cooler weather! Available in some of our best selling designs including the chandelier and tommy gun print. You can check out all the lovely ladies wear here.

In other Branch news, we have just launched our new online dedicated Branch boutique, which features a collection of our best sellers. You can check it out right here. Lastly, we would like to thank and welcome some of our newest retailers that are stocking (or will be soon) our product- if they are in your area be sure to check them out, support independent retailers! xo

Amber Lake Cottage

Happy Monday, all! Hope you all enjoyed the weekend- we took advantage of the beautiful weather doing some yard work and enjoying some wine on the deck between some usual weekend Branch work! TK and I have been talking about taking a late fall, early winter mini weekend vaca up to the Catskills- you know somewhere rustic where we can enjoy the changing foliage, some hiking and a cozy fireplace! In my research I found this amazing cottage in Livingston Manor, NY. As its located on a beautiful lake and comes with a rowboat, I am thinking this place might be more fun in the summer- but the decor is so perfect and clean that I just had to share it with you all! You can read more about it and check out rates and availability here.

Plum Cushion

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a relaxing weekend and are looking forward to getting the week jump started! Wanted to start the week off with the beautiful pillows available from Plum Cushion. Made with designer fabrics by Schumacher and Lee Jofa- these pillows are quality and beautiful, featuring 22" feather inserts some with contrast welts and tassel trims. Perfect to dress up your sofa in a whole new way! Featured above Kelly Wearstler's for Lee Jofa "Flare" , "Bengal Bazaar", and "Chiang Mai Dragon".

Old Crow Farm

Oh, its a rainy and windy morning here- making me want to curl up on the sofa with the pups... Wanted to highlight this cool little shop that I discovered and truly brightened my dark a.m! Take a look at Old Crow Farm, a shop that rescues other people's "junk" and turns it into beautiful treasures. With an industrial edge, Old Crow Farm has all kinds of home decor- from the perfect bin to stow your magazines to an upcycled chair that you didn't know you really needed! Rescued from a small town school, the globe featured above has a great vintage flair to it.

I have had my eye on this vintage locker basket for awhile. I could think of about 100 uses for them- in the studio, in the office...

Love, Love! Great use for what was once a 4x bread pan. I am especially drawn to the bright, fresh blue color....

Sunday Brunch

Dress, dresses.... looking for that perfect little frock? Take a peek at Sunday Brunch- a sweet little online shop devoted entirely to dresses from independent designers. Here you will find pieces that you won't easily find elsewhere. Along with the dress shop, Sunday Brunch also highlights an evolving collection of artists in their gallery. Above, Deborah Dress by Sublet clothing.

Cool Delphine dress from Australian design duo Camilla and Marc. I love the black racer back dress mixed with the fringed shawl. A loop on the dress keeps the shawl in place.

Loving this pistachio green one shoulder asymmetrical number. Featuring a ruffled shoulder and beautiful layers. I think this one is perfect for....anywhere?!

Fall Bedding

I love the Fall on the East Coast! It is most definately my favorite time of year- cozy cardigans, cool breezes and the perfect excuse to cuddle under a wool blanket. As the cooler weather approaches I am on the hunt for some new bedding. Time to get those layers back on the bed, get rid of that light weight coverlet and pull out the feather duvet to get comfy with, yeah! Sage Sparrow Duvet set featured above from Night Byrd.

Sweet Thicket Duvet from Dwell Studio. I especially like this feminine set mixed with the more masculine stripped Draper shams.

I've got my eye on this Missoni throw in the sunny pink color. This lambswool throw would be perfect on my bed or on the sofa for cooler nights.

Was thinking about this duvet set from West Elm. Its a great price and I love the design, but without the shams available I am having second thoughts...

After A Long Absence... New Website

Well, lovely readers, I have to apologize for my extended blogging absence! Business has kept us very busy as many new and returning retailers were placing orders in preparation for the fall shopping season! Thank you to all our customers and retail parters for keeping us busy!

We recently gave the Branch Handmade website a little facelift, as well as updated our stock list so be sure to check it and see if there are any local retailers in your area carrying our product! We have quite a few new styles and designs and will be adding more through out the month. Featured above is our new Gilded Birdcage Tote Bag, which was recently featured on Shop Talk as a "favorite".
