A Brief Pause


Hi Friends, Since I started Harlowe James in 2016, I have never taken an intentional pause in posting to the blog and Instagram. However, in light of the tragedies happening in our country right now it doesn’t feel right to be posting my usual lighthearted content. It can often be seen as a welcome distraction, […]

With all of this time spent at home I have definitely been taking stock of everyday items I use the most frequently. I am finally at a point where I have so much of what I need on hand, which never used to be the case. Many of you are curious as to what I […]

You all know by now how much I love candles and how I change them up seasonally. I have done versions of this before, but with spring in full swing I thought it might be nice to share some of the candles I have been burning as of late and my classic staples for when […]

I have always had a very casual personal interiors style. I prefer pieces to feel relaxed and inviting with classic elements layered in. As I work on transitioning out a lot of our living room I realized how much I prefer a laid back styling approach now more than I ever did. I love when […]

I have been a little quiet on here and Instagram lately.

Stained covers from baking hands, my mom (the baker) and my dad (the cook) used their go to resources time and […]

Last year, after I shared the new vanity we installed in our rental bath – I got a slew of questions as to how we did that. Since we have made a few more small updates since then, I figured I would show the current state of our small apartment bath and touch on some […]

I have gotten a few requests to do a new pillow combination roundup, but I thought it might be fun to focus on neutral pillows because that is usually what I end up pulling. Pillows don’t have to be heavily patterned or colorful to add interest to a space and often a simple touch of […]

I got a few requests to do another budget decor installment, which I always love putting together! There are a ton of good pieces at lower price points out right now and it also helps when many of them are on sale. I know a lot of us aren’t shopping as much as usual, but […]
