Our Top Decor Picks From Blake Lively’s Online Shop
Whether it’s the changing leaves or a chill in the air, the first weeks of fall put cozy textures, warm wood and rustic finds top of mind.
Fronted by actress Blake Lively, online shop Preserve features just the kind of humble, hand-crafted housewares we’re dreaming of right now, rendered in a range of vintage metals, soft fabrics and reclaimed woods. And since the shop’s offerings — which also include clothing, accessories and children’s items — are chiefly produced by American artisans, your handsome buy is also likely to be one-of-a-kind (not to mention in direct support of an artist or maker).
Here are some of our favorite home decor pieces from this sweet store, perfect for a seasonal hostess gift, warming up your home’s interior or carting up to the cabin.
Husband and wife team Walter and Margaux Kent of Philadelphia-based company Peg & Awl handcraft all their rustic-chic wares in their home studio. Their charming egg caddies are made of reclaimed cypress wood and hold up to a dozen eggs.

The Angle Vase (also hand-crafted by Winfrey) makes an ideal base for a loose, casual floral arrangement, and a striking focal point all on its own.
