As a young designer having lived & worked in DC at the Washington Design Center, to now living & working in Honolulu, Hawaii there is a limitless amount of beautiful things I've come in contact with. Catch a glimpse into my world in the design industry and love for all things POSH. Hope these musings will inspire and guide you to stylish living! Aloha
If you know me well then you know it's no secret I have a love affair with monstera leaves. Ever since arriving on island I've fallen madly in love with this plant and it's foliage. It's enormous size and perfectly coastal vibe is what gets me the most. I feel as though I'm walking through a rain forrest every time I see one. This creeping vine is native to tropical rainforests of southern Mexico, hints why I would experience this rainforest illusion. They are magical beauties with plentiful posh punch. Adding any kind of live foliage to a room instantly gives it life. Easily transform a dull space into an inviting oasis with a quick drop of monstera leaves or palms to a vase. Whether they are draped on a table cloth or nestled together in a formal arrangement for an event monsteras tell a story of nature and it's wonders.I resemble a small child while watching our monstera plant grow in our backyard here in Hawaii. I swear I count each new leaf as it comes in! Cannot wait to add my very own monsteras to our home..
Getting back to my roots today. Saw this in my Atlanta Homes & Lifestyle magazine and had to share. This gracious and spacious outdoor living area is stocked with southern style and all the goods for a wonderful evening outdoors. Fire up the grill and settle in for great food and great friends... this may make me miss my Georgia loves just a tad too much. I think I'll tell them they have to come to Hawaii instead, an evening outside in January in GA isn't quite like ours here on the islands. Who's down for a bbq on the beach?! Thankful for another weekend just around the corner..

Never has plywood made my heart skip a beat.. that was until the Cherner armchair. As seen in Lily and Rufus' oh so chic Upper East Side gossip girl apartment [third photo from top] and plenty of other gorgeous homes, the Cherner armchair is one posh place to rest your behind. This chair is a conversation piece. It's a beautiful marriage of class and modern edge. Shop the Cherner side chair and armchair at Pacific Home.
