My New Space

I’m a bit of a nomad. I move around a lot, so much that I’m sure it worries my family. Whether it’s to a new city or new apartment, I love a new adventure and a fresh start. It might be the designer in me, in that I get bored with my space after a while and I live to create a new design scheme that inspires me even more than the last. Well, it has happened again. I’m moving! But, I have decided this is my last move, before I settle down, purchase a home and finally put down roots. Well, unless I land a job in Paris or Berlin, and then all bets are off the table! But, this is going to be fun. A new flat, new furniture and a new look. Yippee!

Check out my new digs. It’s still under construction but it’s looking pretty good! I’m beyond excited about the barn door. I like the raw, unfinished look, but wouldn’t adding leather strips to cover it like this door here be awesome?

With apartment living in Texas, unfortunately you don’t have control over the paint color scheme. If I could have my way, I would paint the entire space BM 2121-70 Chantilly Lace, but the reality is really not that bad. I like the Agreeable Gray, it’s bright and neutral and still should complement my furniture ideas. Once I’m in the space, and can view the light at different times of the day, a Benjamin Moore white may still end up on the walls. Shhh, don’t tell!

I will be purging a lot! I actually like the process of moving. It’s an opportunity to get rid of all the unneeded junk, paper, clothing and random things that pile up over time. My ultimate goal is to only live with what I really need and for the placement of my decor to look intentional, and not haphazardly decorated. Here are a few spaces that are inspiring my decor.

Next week I’ll be sharing my design plan for this new space. I’m still tweaking it, and searching for the perfect pieces. I want to invest in great designs that I’ll have for a long, long time. If you come across anything amazing, vintage, modern, boho chic, graphic prints, art…please share! Send me a pin or comment below. I’m on the hunt! Xo

Fall Table Setting With Dried Flowers

fall-tablescape-1
Throughout the year, I save a few flowers from any bouquets I receive and dry them. Some of my favorites to dry are roses and hydrangeas. The colors become rich and are the perfect accent for your Fall tables. For roses, I hang them upside down and using a rubber band secure them to a door knob for a week or two. Hydrangeas do not need to hang upside down, they will dry perfectly in the vase.

So give your flowers a longer shelf life, dry them and add a pop of vibrant color to your tabletops. Enjoy!

Good Collaborations In Art, Fashion & Home Decor

I am a huge fan of Kelly Wearstler, she is the ultimate interior, product and fashion designer extraordinaire. She’s fearless with her designs and continues to push the envelope. I was so happy to see her team up with another fearless artist, Shantell Martin.

The two have created one-of-a-kind pieces ranging from homewares to a scarf and leather jacket. Some of these limited items are still available at 1stdibs.com.

Graphic Designers Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman have created another crazy project that I’m loving. Quotes on Shit (yes, that is what it’s called) is the simple idea that we all use and waste too many things in our lives.

Through paint and typography, they breathe new life into items that have been thrown away. You can follow this project via Instagram and make a bid for any items that you like.

Another cool collaboration that happened last month was Pharrell Williams teaming up with Colette-Paris.

The music producer produced 14 very snazzy items that were sold at the concept store during ‘Pharrell Week’. This is the second collaboration between the two, so I’m sure another will be coming soon.
