"It's Time to Start Getting Cozy . . . "

Greetings -

With the holiday season approaching so quickly (didn't it seem like it was the 4th of July something like TWO weeks ago . . . lol), I thought I'd highlight a few of our Christmas and Holiday gift ideas each week here on the blog . . .

This week we start with the tartan throw - because it's beginning to get a wee bit chilly!

"Perfect for cheering on your favourite team in the stands - or curling 
up with your favourite book on the sofa.  We've gathered together a 
jolly selection of tartan throws in wool, angora, or luxurious 
100% cashmere - just right for keeping you toasty warm." 

from our selection of lambswool/angora tartan throws . . . 

 And the amazingly beautiful 100% Cashmere Blackwatch tartan throw.

"Tis the Season - with Traditional Home . . . "


I'm totally excited to share a few of the images from our new spread in the November/December issue of Traditional Home.  Photographer John Merkl did an amazing job at capturing the spirit of Christmas in our home here in San Francisco.  The holiday season is fast upon us - and I hope your house is already beginning to show a bit of Christmas cheer too . . .

Take a peek -

I've shared my best holiday decorating advice (and tons of more images!) with Traditional Home - so stop by and take a look!

Some things can't wait.  We just received an advance order of our custom dog beds for Holiday  2015 - and I was just too excited not to share.  A generously sized 24" round dog bed in either Ryder Tartan or Meacham Tartan - with custom inserts of poly-fill and cedar chips.

Now available for pre-order on SMW Home.  Shipping November 15th.

Dog tested.  Tartan approved.

"Today in Footwear News . . . "


As y'all most likely know - I have a bit of a shoe fetish.  Seriously. So nothing could be MORE exciting to announce than my new collaboration with Stubbs & Wootton of Palm Beach - a limited edition tartan slipper - the "Baird" - featuring our 100 % wool Baird Tartan from Scot Meacham Wood Home.  

"Two great tastemakers, Scot Meacham Wood and Stubbs & Wootton, 
are thrilled to present Baird, a limited edition handmade Stubbs & Wootton 
slipper in SMW Home's luxurious tartan fabric. Slip on a pair for work, 
cocktails, or a nighttime cup of tea (trust us, you won't ever want to take them off). 
Nab a pair before they're gone! Available for both gentlemen and ladies - 
online at Stubbs & Wootton."

Ok y'all.  The inventory is going fast - as we only produced a limited number of these amazingly chic shoes - so take a moment and shop either men's or women's - and get your holiday party started from the ankles down.

"SMWD - On The Move . . . "

Greetings -

I know I've gone a bit 'radio silent' that last few weeks - some of it has been a parade of traveling (both for clients and family) - but, we've also come across an exciting opportunity to expand SMWD's visibility -

So we're are on the move . . .

Here's a wee peek. 

Well . . . we're a little bit further along than this . . .

But, as of 5pm on Friday - all the boxes are here (and mostly unpacked!).  We have WiFi.  And we all seem to be able to use the wireless printer.

So - I'm calling the week a complete win.

More soon . . .

"Stag. Party . . . "


There is very little as iconic as the silhouette of a proud stag against the rugged backdrop of the Scottish highlands.  I've seen this classic image played out in paintings, film stills, and marvelous poetry.

"Reaching a clearing with flakes blowing wild,
stopped to watch the proud beast on the brae.
His deep red coat and antlers full grown,
the Monarch reigns, despite this cold day."
- a poem by LittleMoon

As I began the craft the textile collection for SMW Home - I felt the I needed to expand the patterns well beyond a parade of tartans (as one cannot live by tartan alone!) and include some jaunty damasks as well.

So . . . *drumroll* . . . I'm delighted to introduce "Stag's Leap" as a part of the SMW Home textile collection!  And in some very sassy colours too -


Stop by and have a look at our entire collection of textiles - and enjoy a wee bit of the scottish highlands for yourself-

"Inspiration Point - Nick Olsen . . . "

Greetings -

When one looks for inspiration - one can usually frolic through the lovely (and at times incredibly dramatic) work of my buddy Nick Olsen.  Maybe it's because of the microscopic flurry of Fall in the air here in San Francisco - but, this image - practically bursting with Spring - has been on my mind this week.
