FALLING FOR FALL

We've bid farewell to the Summer and are happily embracing the chillier months to come. Fall is one of our favorite seasons, a transition period between the hot and cold...kids going back school, freshly sharpened pencils, time to break out the sweaters, snuggle up by the fireplace, picking apples, pumpkin spice everything and falling leaves. We've gathered everything you need to cozy up in style!

Endless Summer Art Picks

Summer has flown by! Kids are heading back to school and we are practically knocking at September's door. But for those of us who are lucky enough to live in coastal California, we know the summer mentality never really ends here. When choosing art for the office I wanted to pick pieces that reflect the endless-summer lifestyle and perhaps trick us into thinking our office is oceanfront, rather than nestled in the mountains. These are just a few of our favorite art picks to help beat those end of Summer blues...

Tile With Style

Happy Monday! Cannot believe that we are already in August! Where has the Summer gone!?! Finally getting back to the blog...I've enlisted the help of my design assistant to get me back on track and we'll hopefully start posting more regularly. With quite a few projects in the works we have been ordering lots of new samples, many of which have been tile...

Choosing tile for projects is something I love to do, but it can also be intimidating at times. It is a big commitment and can have a real impact on the overall look and feel of the space! It's easy to play it safe and stay on trend with a clean white subway tile in the kitchen, laundry room or bathroom, but there are times when a project just begs for a little something extra, and that's when some funky tile can really shine! We've gathered some of our favorite and more unique samples in the office - some in use and some that we are dying to use! These tiles have big personality whether it be in their bright color or  unique shape and are guaranteed to make a statement in any space.

Besides these amazing colored tiles and shapes we are also crushing on the new Engobe Glazed Thin Brick by Fireclay Tile. Check out their amazing new colors below. Cannot wait to spec these beauties for a project!

Modern Farmhouse Living Room Design Concept

Happy Wednesday! Finally carving out a little time to sit and write the first blog on my website! Seems like the majority of my projects are all in the same stage/phase of the building process right now. A handful of my clients are eagerly awaiting the furniture phase. I think most clients enjoy that part more than the finishes & fixtures, perhaps it is more familiar territory and of course who doesn't love ordering new furniture!?!

I have a few projects that I would categorize as "Modern Farmhouse" and I've been collecting inspiration and sourcing for furniture, rugs, accessories & art. For a Living Room concept I've put together a few timeless items that also have that Modern Farmhouse aesthetic. I love a beautifully upholstered medium gray sofa/sectional paired with camel colored leather chairs, to me that is a match made in heaven! From that neutral base you can go in so many different directions with the rugs, pillows, accessories, etc. In this case I stayed with a mostly neutral color palette but added in some deep indigo blue for a coastal twist on the Modern Farmhouse.
