Today's room of the day is brought to you by non other than design guru Jonathan Adler. Capturing a mid-century/vintage/modern flair in this space was accomplished by a mixture of elements pulling together a sexy and fun Palm Beach style space. White walls are a staple for PB style, so is bright furniture and this room is a perfect showcase of that. Natural elements such as this jute rug, paired with high gloss accessories are just the right formula for laid back glamour. The fiddle leaf fig brings the outdoors in and the gold and acrylic finishes add and the perfect dose of chic. Layering styles is key to the Palm Beach look and if you study this room you'll see a fabulous example of just that. Hopefully you're dreaming in beach tones today.. wherever you may be. From east coast beaches to west coast beaches, cheers to coastal style!

 Ashland lamp, Arteriors 

Gracing the pages of magazines and the consoles of gorgeous homes, the Ashland is no stranger to attention. The natural wood base with gold leaf finish offers organic beauty with a touch of glam. And let's face it, the black shade is the icing on the cake. Always in love with a well lit space.  Happy hump day!

Filmmaker and actress Lake Bell is smart and spunky while having serious down to earth style, take a look...

I love getting a glimpse into someone's home whose personality intrigues me. Lake Bell's girl next door attitude goes hand in hand with her "LA crash pad" as she calls it. Splitting her time between LA and New York means she's on the go and wants to kick her feet up and enjoy the Cali sunshine when she lands on the west coast. Her space provides plenty of room for sun and simple conversation. This home's eclectic, approachable, and unique style represents it's owner pretty darn well. Here's to the darling home to one of my favorite Hollywood gals...

Today is a look inside my commercial shoot for Pacific Home. Visual merchandising has always been an aspect of the design industry that I admire and aspire to do more of. One of the greatest things about the industry is all of the unique avenues within it. From my days working on site in client's homes to meetings with our design team for store buying; time spent in the store putting together vignettes to doing photo shoots and commercials, my heart is always at home. Design has become so many things to me. I have been blessed with an array of roles and responsibilities and for that I am extremely grateful. Cultivating and executing my first commercial shoot was a complete blast and I look forward to doing it whenever the opportunity presents itself. Will share the final result hopefully in the near future but for now, a sneak peek of some shots on set will have to suffice. Hope your week starts out on an inspired note!

 This bedding collection is for anyone who is looking to bring their bedroom alive. Bursting with vivid colors and graphic patterns these designs tell the stories of the lands they came from. John Robshaw (pictured above) has traveled the world and channelled his inspiration into his collection of textiles, bedding, and home goods. Each piece is hand crafted with love and careful attention by Indian artisans. The John Robshaw look is one of laid back elegance, each design is wonderfully cheerful and cultured. What makes this one of my favorite bedding companies is how and why it came to be and it's evident uniqueness. To view JR's full collection and read more about it's history, click here.

happy aloha friday!

Okay, so frankly July was a bad blogging month for me, horrible actually. I'm on a serious guilt trip right now. To my wonderful readers I'm sorry and I love you. The only way to redeem myself is to come back strong! Got lots of gorgeous goodness lined up so hang tight. First off, let's start simple. What better way to jump back in then a clearly in love post. This time around it's a staple I believe almost any home should have, an acrylic console. This piece is so versatile and extremely easy to move around throughout the house for different uses. With just the right touch of luxe this console sets a perfect clear stage for any basic accessory. Great for a sofa table, skinny laptop desk, bar, entryway table and more this console is so easy to fall in love with. Shop the gita console at the best [no biased feelings involved] design studio and furniture store, Pacific Home

"Sarong. Sundress. Scarf. Impromptu beach blanket. You’ll never run out of ways to wear our gorgeous pareos." 

They pretty much said it all in one sentence! These posh pareos are certainly a summer staple and absolutely an all the time Hawaii staple. Unbelievably convenient and so easy to carry with you, these whisper-soft cotton babies come in the most gorgeous prints and colors. Summer never looked so bright. Cheers to the weekend!!

Alooooha Friday

I'm crushing hard on these sexy little consoles today. While perusing around vendors hunting the perfect console for a client I fell in love all over again with Bungalow 5. I hop around and give lots of companies my attention especially when I'm on the prowl for a specific piece but at the end of the day I have my favorite few. At the moment for case goods it's Arteriors, Worlds Away, Bernhardt, and Made Goods, but Bungalow is quickly climbing the list. Wanted to share my gorgeous finds, stick close because one of these will end up in a project. Of course I'll share photos when it comes time.  Happy Thursday.... almost there!

This little lamp deserved it's very own well lit Wednesday, purely for it's posh personality. There is no going wrong with greek key in my humble opinion. It's classic, fabulous, and timeless. World's Away got it right with this beautiful gold leaf baby. Being a huge sucker for lighting makes it difficult to make a commitment to any lighting, small or big. I'm bound to fall in love with something every few weeks or month. I've reached acceptance that my heart comes and goes with furniture, it's part of the job. I'm learning how to cope. It's difficult, but I'm learning (such a hard life isn't it??) :) Well, next Wednesday will be a new lighting love but until then, I'm loving on Clayton.

Some days I wake up and think to myself my whole home could be in black and white and I would be just fine. But then, just like this room I know at the end of the day some color would have to be incorporated for me not to lose my mind. The large artwork brings life and spirit [that color always offers] to this space. Main furniture that makes this room: Louis XV sofa, shop here. Acrylic coffee table, shop here. Meurice floor lamp, shop here. Here's to the combo that always rocks my socks off, here's to dynamite black and white.

happy Monday

Careyes, Mexico  

Santorini, Greece 

Honolulu, Hawaii

Well kids it's officially the first day of summer, happy days of heat! In keeping with the theme of the day, I figured nothing would be more appropriate than some dreamy destination pools. These amazingly designed swimming holes, each with their own sweeping views of the ocean, are the perfect eye candy to cool you off today. Hope you enjoy the first day of summer in a posh way!
