I am getting SO excited for Thanksgiving!!!! I spend it every year down in Palm Springs at my Aunt's house with my family. In the spirit of the holiday falling in the Autum season, I thought it would be LOVELY to decorate your table in tones of gold. Something about golden hued flatware and rustic wood really go together! What do you think? What are your holiday traditions for Thanksgiving?

I swear, Andrew and I are turning into 'Hoarders: Cat Edition' as the weeks go by. Last Monday night - without a second thought - we welcomed a sweet 4 week old little girl into our home by the name of Charlotte "Charlie" Baslow. A litter of kittens were born and abandoned in the right field pavilion at Dodger Stadium (where Andrew works) and we of course don't have the ability to say, "No," when it comes to animals. Adding to our ever growing family of furry babies, I'm pleased to introduce you to our sweet, teeny tiny little baby girl.

When I adopted Chaplin and Cal they were already weened and fairly independent, so they just roamed the house on their own right away. NOT THE SAME WITH A TEENY TINY! Wow, I had no idea how stressful and needy and totally CUTE wee little kittens are! Formula? Check. Shoebox lid turned litter box? Check. Closet covered in kitten litter and blankets galore? Check. Two pissed off rival siblings? Check check check!!!

Apparently I finally taught Chaplin and Cal the importance of sharing... see little Charlotte tucked in behind Cal on the bottom? This only took 5 days to accomplish without a ton of hissing and biting.

Sacked out behind the couch with her flamingo... how cute is that pink mouth???

Looking forward to keeping you posted on how this little bug is changing our lives - and my sleeping habits!

Andrew and I were supposed to go to the famous Mr. Bone's Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood tonight to pick a pumpkin out... but then the Cardinals had to go and win game 6 of the world series last night so our plans for this evening have been put on hold to watch game 7.

To get in the mood of the trick-or-treaters to come on Monday here is a very fun idea to decorate the interior of your home! Why not turn your furniture into ghosts??? We put up purple and orange twinkly lights in our windows but haven't done a thing with the interior to get us in the spirit of the holiday. Placing white sheets and pooling them over the furniture is such a cute idea, and with various sheets on hand, a FREE decoration at that.

Today REALLY feels like the first day of Fall in Los Angeles. I woke up bright and early to a perfectly crisp sky with a HUGE chill in the air! Something about this picture makes me long for a cold day out on the water in a modern cement-y house to curl up in and watch the cold go by.

As some of you know I work for Pom Pom Interiors in Beverly Hills and am a bit obsessed when it comes to my store. I LOVE when Hilde + Reza come in and we change things around a bit. This time I decided to document and was then asked to post about it on their blog Pom Pom Living. Please hop on over there to check it out!

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted a 'wedded wednesday' lovelies! I see SO many beautiful weddings and receptions (and I always pin them!) but I forget to share here with you. So without further adieu, check out this rockin reception dinner idea:

I would love love love to have been a guest at that wedding! I also love how a scaled down version of this soiree could totally be executed for an engagement party in your parents backyard, or for a dinner at home on your patio with your close friends. The twinkly lights and the curve of the tables instead of one straight line are what do it for me. Can you hear the soft French music playing in the background?


Not sure what it is 'exactly' that I love so much about this bedroom... Could it be the layering of the bedding? The Mercury lamp bases? The GORGEOUS fireplace? The modern and traditional pieces mixed together? Still not sure what it is, but I would L.O.V.E to call that space my own!

I know its not just me who adores a little chevron pattern... I've been seeing it EVERYWHERE lately! There is so much attitude and elegance that the chevron pattern demands, you can't help but smile when you see it used. It can completely change the look of a neutral room with just a pop of pattern, or enhance a dramatic space even more when mixed with other textile patterns.

(I DIE for this ceiling btw... amazeballs!)

So what do you think? What is your favorite use of chevron whether it be on your floors, ceiling (my fave), your back splash, etc?

{me - rummaging through vintage fabric at a flea market in Provence, France}

I often get asked, "What is an interior design consultation? What can I expect when I/we meet with you about decorating my space?" -
I offer this service to local LA and Orange County residents only - the consultation is a way to have professional design services at a fraction of the cost of Conventional Interior Design. The difference is that I come to your space and discuss your design needs in person. It could be just answers to some spatial questions or a whole room design, including furniture layouts, plans, color schemes, finishes and resources. You choose how to spend your time with me.

Many questions can be answered with my on-site consultation service. Oftentimes you already have existing furniture that just doesn’t work in a space, or you are looking at a house to purchase and don’t know if it will work for you and your family. I will give you advise on the spot and additional resources depending on your needs.

If I seem like a good fit where I understand what you need and what style you are, we would then move into conventional Interior Design. From concept to completion, I take care of everything, always taking into consideration your esthetic preferences and functional needs.
  • Space planning, including minor architectural alterations advice - if needed.
  • Design drawings, contractor ready.
  • Furniture layouts, schedules and purchasing.
  • Paint color and interior finishes selections.
  • Interior landscaping.
  • Lighting plans.
  • Purchasing of furnishings, fabrics and finishes available to trade only.
Never hesitate to ask me a design question or any dilemma you may have:

There are MANY things in life that creep me out: bugs, snakes, earthquakes, fires, horror movies, cotton balls - don't ask - but dead animal skulls? Totally not creepy at all. Especially when they are mounted in the most beautiful way, preferably in a group, and outside of the Elk Lodge!

I've been obsessing over that dining room I posted about with the antlers for a while now... even investigating where on earth the dear pinner on pinterest pinned it from (even she didn't know) trying to track down the designer/homeowner so I could give him/her/them major props for creating such a space.

So while the obsession continues, I thought I would share some OTHER antler yummyness to inspire you.

So what do you think? Creepy? Beautiful? A little bit of both???

Can't decide what I love more about this room: the collection of antlers as artwork or the blown glass lights above the table. I gotta get me one of those cowhides STAT!
