This place! I return here again and again for design inspiration. I love to see their new inventory and the beautiful colors they paint the walls. It's ever-changing! If you don't know what the apartment is, it's a genius idea by a couple in Copenhagen, Denmark.
I love card readings. They are fun and insightful. They also help me to slow down and get present. It feels good to take a moment in the mornings and reflect on whats going on in my world.
I'm totally obsessed with this home. I love the colors, there is a lot of depth and contrast but it doesn't feel overly moody.
This is something I've been doing in my apartment for years. We have concrete walls which makes it challenging to hang large pieces of art securely. So I figured, why not just paint directly on the walls?
Boutiquey online design shops are pretty hit or miss. It can be hard to find a good one that is consistently well curated. I've been following The Citizenry for a while and am really impressed with this company. They sell hand-made products sourced from around the world made by real artisans.
When I start a new project it's always so much fun sourcing stuff and putting together a concept. I can see it all come together in my head and it's exciting! One of the more difficult parts of this process is presenting the concept and furniture in a way that will let the client "see" things as I imagine them...
I want all of these things in my home. I simply cannot get enough textiles these days. Rugs, pillows and blankets are just piling up around here and I love it.
Several years ago my friend Shoshana took me on a tour of her interior designer friend's gorgeous flat. It was colorful and friendly and the majority of the art and fabrics used was african mud cloth which was totally new to me. I fell in love.
I was at Rare Device over the holidays and stumbled on the work of Oakland based artist Pamela Baron. She paints lots of different things like crystals, flowers, shells, birds and my favorite... victorian homes of San Francisco.
I've been in love this idea of "a tub in the shower" for a while. I first did it for a prospective client years ago when I got the chance to come up with some unconventional layouts (I dug up those plans from 2009, see below) and then a few years later I read an article on the 407 East 75th Street Carriage House in NYC and I finally got to see "a tub in the shower" in real life.
Who doesn't love spring? Such a magical time of year. Everything feels fresh and new, the air is crisp and clean and smells like the flowers and plants that start coming back to life. There is so much possibility.
I'm on week two of my sugar detox and things got real this weekend. I am tired, sore, foggy, and craving sugar badly. I am determined to stick it out and I think today will be the worst of it. Then things will start to get really really good. I'm excited to learn how I feel without the sugar!
This post combines two of my favorite things: vintage furniture & organization. I love using unique baskets and bins to organize stuff. While large baskets look good right on the floor, you need some kind of shelving to store smaller baskets and bins.
