I designed a fun little collection of tech cases (including iPhones, Apple Watches and iPads). They are now available for purchase on Casetify. Click here to see the whole line, and use code 4p435h for $10 off your first order.
Elemental is the newest collection release I have available at Guildery. Designing this collection was such a treat for me because it was inspired by my new life and adventures in Newport Beach, California. With the rugged terrain of coastal mountains and the deep indigo tones of the Pacific around every turn, even just driving around Orange County is enjoyable. I would say that this collection speaks more to who I am and my personal style as a designer more than anything I have ever designed. And I am so pleased to have it available at Guildery, where you can select patterns and purchase them in a variety of products - everything from pillows to wallpaper to upholstered pieces.

Blogging twice in one week! That has to be some sort of record for me.
I was chatting with a sweet friend, who is expecting her first child in November. She is planning her nursery, and she wants to do an eclectic mix of vintage and modern - which is my very favorite style to design. This particular friend (Shea Wright) is a super-talented photographer, who has THE best taste and the coolest house; so she really doesn't "need" any help. But since I love anything bohemian AND since I love to design interior mood boards....I decided to whip one up for her.
She has some green furniture that belonged to her grandmother that she would like to incorporate, so I decided to start there for the color palette. Shea and her husband, who is an architect, are in the process of building a new modern farmhouse. The walls will be white, with polished concrete floors. And the ceiling will have white wood with exposed beams (love). With everything being a clean slate, it seems only fitting to add some happy punches of color for the bambino's room. I love a really bright yellow mixed with the muted green and girly pinks. Most people would shy away from a colored crib. But if you chose a neutral color, like yellow, it can work for another child down the road.
Artwork in any room is so important for big impact. When I was designing my daughter Lola's room, I pulled the colors for the room directly from the large print I used. The same goes for this room. Michelle Armas is one of my favorite artists. Actually, it was hard to even pick just one for this room. There were several that would work well.
Shea mentioned that she would like to use something industrial and old for the changing table, and I adore that idea. It would allow for storage space for cute bins of diapers and the perfect spot for a changing pad. Plus, adding some industrial touches really meshes well with the style of her new house.
I can't wait to see what she ends up doing with the nursery. I know she will make it picture perfect.
With our recent move to California, I am getting the opportunity to redesign some spaces. One of the biggest changes from our old house is that the boys are now sharing a bedroom. I wanted to make sure the room worked for both boys - and they both happen to share an interest in Star Wars (which I have actually wanted to incorporate for a while). Themed rooms are definitely not my thing though. So, I started with the main elements I knew I wanted and am only adding a few subtle pops of Star Wars, which can easily be swapped out if their new fave thing becomes something else in a few years. We already had the red shop chests, and I thought they were perfect because it would give each of them one to store their clothes. I found these awesome printable Star Wars posters on Etsy, and I can't wait to order and print them. I plan to use washi tape as frames to make them more playful, a clever idea I found on Apartment Therapy.
The boys were both sleeping in full-sized beds when they had their own rooms. Two twin beds were a necessity for the new room, and I have always loved these black Jenny Lind beds from Land of Nod. The biggest impact in this room is definitely the rug. Graphic prints are always a great fit for a kid space, and this rug seemed like an ideal choice. Plus, it's an indoor/outdoor rug, so it should hold up to the rough play of my sons.
The room is almost complete, and I will share pics when it's ready. I think they are really enjoying sharing a bedroom so far.....and I am glad because I felt guilty taking away the beds and individual rooms they both loved so much.
