A Season for Hope

To say that these are unprecedented times would be to put it mildly. As we navigate through the confusion, we want to offer a little bit of Spring sunshine to let your mind wander. Please enjoy some of our favorite offerings for today and hopefully a brighter tomorrow.

“Dining In” Cookbook by Alison Roman

Whether you’re cooking for one or feeding an entire tribe, Alison Roman’s debut cookbook will make dining at a restaurant seem totally unnecessary! We love the beautiful photography and the easy (relatively!) to follow recipes. Alison’s brash sense of humor is found on every page!

Amy Meier: Hand Made Bookstand

We love these clean-lined, contemporary book stands from our friend Amy Meier. Perfect to use while cooking using your Alison Roman cookbook or to display your favorite coffee table book – they are beautiful accents to any home.

L’Objet: Rose Noire Bath Salts

Long baths are the perfect stress reliever any time of the year – but especially right now. These salts from L’Object will make any bathroom look extra special.

M On The Square: Puzzles

These are not the puzzles from your childhood!  With names like Disco Queen and Champagne Problems these are a little bit more adult. The photographs are whimsical and arresting – perfect for a rainy afternoon.

Le Labo: Santal 26 Candle

We know – do we really need another candle?! But this fresh, clean design is all about craftsmanship and scents like no others. This is beyond luxe.

Urban Electric: Walska

Long a favorite at James Thomas, this new fixture from Urban Electric has the studio abuzz. And the fact that it is named after a Polish opera singer and her famed garden – who knew?!

Mainly Baskets: Outdoor Arbor Chair

We are dreaming of a sitting on a back porch watching the sunset over an expanse of blue water.  This is the perfect chair to kick back and relax in.  And besides, who doesn’t love wicker – so charming!

Schumacher: India Arbre Wallpaper

Maybe someday we will actually get to travel again and India won’t feel so far away, but in the meantime we can add this to our walls and pretend to be there! So pretty – a breath of fresh air which we need right about now.

Juliska: Isabella Blue Acrylic Tumbler

The red solo cup got upgraded! And since we tend to be drinking a lot more adult beverages these days why not do it out of this pretty tumbler? Juliska has always been a fave so even better!

The Foggy Dog: Tahoe Rope Leash

Since dog walking is a sanctioned social distancing exercise why not do it style? We love the green trim details and the brass accents on this luxe leash. What lucky pooch wouldn’t want to go for a walk?

At JamesThomas, we specialize in designing your perfect welcome home. Let’s get started.
