Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Home + 48 Hours in Raleigh

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I took a last minute trip to our state's capital to visit some friends.  My gal pal Mary Beth showed us all a good time with stops at some of Raleigh's hippest eats.  Friday night we sat at the bar for a light dinner at Crawford and Son then hit up Person Street Bar for after dinner drinks and a round of pool.  Late, late night looked sexy and cool at Fox Liquor Bar.  I ditched my Saturday morning 16 mile training run for three days of food and beverage gorging and of course no trip to see Mary Beth would be complete without a minimum of three hours playing dress up in fabulous vintage and drooling over chic vintage finds for the home.  Catch a taste below and see House of Landor Instagram + Finds, or call House of Landor if you see something here you might like for yourself!

Followed by another walk down memory lane at my Alma Mater, Saint Mary's, the most delicious house made Bloody Mary and veggie hot dog at The Cardinal helped soak up everything from the night before. Saturday night started out with drinks atop the iconic Holiday Inn downtown. The last time I was there I was 19 years old in my enormous white Deb dress sitting in the hallway an underage drunken mess crying my eyes out to my date about who knows what.  A most ridiculous but equally fond memory that was!  But seriously, the rooftop bar boasts magnificent views of downtown. Dinner Saturday night was delicious Italian at Gravy. Last but certainly not least, we hit up and Standard Foods for Sunday Brunch.  


We now return to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with some great finds for the home!  Can't see the below images?  Click HERE

This Moroccan rug is a great neutral rug that will look great in every room and literally goes with everything.  

The perfect drink holder for the dog days of summer spent splashing in the pool!

The banana leaf print has continued to be a huge hit in design.  Add a playful touch to your bedroom with this duvet or pillow.  And who doesn't need a pink flamingo shower curtain?

If I were back in my college apartment, this might be the modern day tapestry hanging above the couch!

Every home needs a shot of shine gold starburst mirror!  The price on this one is hard to beat.
