Kitchen Redo: Boho Beauty in L.A.


I love seeing what designers do in their own homes and I found this amazing kitchen reveal by designer and artist Justina Blakeney especially inspiring. Known for her signature California meets global bohemian style, this vibrant kitchen is just full of color and warmth. I love the organic feel of the materials used and the contrast of the brass hardware against those amazing glossy jade tiles. Just so happy!

Trend Spotting: Pale Pink Walls


I have been loving all of the pale, pale pink interiors I have been spotting - and aptly just in time for Valentines Day! One of my first NYC design projects at a firm called for Benjamin Moore Opal, a subtle shell pink, in the small entry vestibule - I was unsure but once I saw the paint on the wall I was hooked! It added this warm, soft glow and was so welcoming. It was the perfect solution for a small, windowless space. 

Here are a few tips for making pale pink work and a few images for inspiration!

1} Select a dusty, earthy pink hue. These pinks will feel sophisticated and grounded - decidedly not like a nursery! My favorites are Ben Moore Opal along with Farrow & Ball Pink Ground or Calamine. 

2} Temper pink walls with accents in black, dark grays or saturated jewel tones. Darker notes will help make the space feel modern and fresh. Charcoal gray and emerald greens work especially well!

3} Keep all floors, woodwork and ceilings neutral - wood toned or white painted surfaces help create a balanced space.

House Tour: Fresh + Airy in SF


Today's house tour inspiration in a lovely and crisp family home in San Fran. I pretty much love everything about these interiors but especially the excellent use of accessories! There are just enough colorful, interesting accessories set against a simple, classic spaces - perfection! Art, vases, books and textiles are beautifully used here to bring bursts of color and personality without feeling cluttered. And that kitchen . . . . Pretty gorgeous right?
