We’re kicking off Friday morning with a cup of coffee and a determination to get that inbox down to zero. Side note… have you tried the Blueberry Lavender Almond Drink from Trader Joe’s? It’s a summer game changer, and totally encourages a second cup! While we put our Nespresso to work, we hope you’ll enjoy our top finds of the week:

— Our friends at Circa Lighting profiled the very talented Jenn Feldman Designs. Get an in depth look at her colorful portfolio and see how she uses the chic lighting brand in her work.

— Los Angeles-based handmade ceramics brand, Lux Eros, has officially launched its first ever gift registry! Would it be weird if we got married again just so to partake?

— For most parts of the country, it’s officially too hot to function. Snag some style inspiration so you can stay cool and look cool at all once. 

— These might be some of the prettiest party platters — or the more apt name, grazing boards — we’ve ever seen. 

— Step inside the most photogenic hotel in the California desert

— Our Lifestyle Editor is in São Paulo and we’re officially jealous! Be sure to follow along on her Instagram to ignite your wanderlust. 

— One of our favorite Houston designers is selling pieces from her personal collection in Chairish. Jackpot!

— Finally, tour a bold & dramatic family home, where each room’s wallpaper might be better than the last.
