This week is a little chaotic for us because we are moving to a new place…..a cute little house in Normal Heights (San Diego). Although I am going to miss our little apartment, I am VERY excited to be in a new space and neighborhood. Since we are getting married this October, it’s going to be nice to come home to a place we feel proud of and a place we can have more leeway with the interiors/exterior design. It’s kind of like when an artist receives a brand new, blank canvas. Ah, happiness. Anyone else in the process of moving or thinking about it?

Guys, my friend mentioned to me only “wordpress” users could post comments on my blog and I freaked! I am so sorry and everyone should be able to comment successfully now. I am so glad my friend said something because I have been missing all of your feedback!
I am so excited to introduce you to my lovely friend, Katie (Kate) Hart of Odd Daughter Paper Co.! We met at one of our Creative Connection San Diego events a while back and has recently launched her stationary site. Below are some of her letterpress stationary designs – amazing, right?! You can purchase her cards/postcards online and at one of my favorite local shops, Pigment.
I love supporting local talent – there is SO much in San Diego and I hope to share more here. 🙂
Can’t wait to see what else Katie comes up with.
There’s something about completing a room that makes my design-loving heart go pitter patter. It’s a great feeling of accomplishment. I recently had the pleasure of designing a nursery for a new friend in Del Mar, California. Jenny Livits is the Founder & CEO of a Wardrobe Design & Styling Boutique called Pink Lagoon.
Jenny was getting ready to have her second little one when she contacted me about getting some design help with her nursery/guest room and other areas of her home. She is a creative, talented and very motivated. Not only has become a business mentor to me but also a good friend. We could sit for hours chatting about how we believe great design can change the world.
Here are some before and after photos of her lovely nursery. Baby Gracey was born just a few weeks ago and they are really enjoying their new space together.
Since Jenny rents her home, we wanted to create a wall treatment that would not give them a headache should they decide to move. (We are keeping our fingers crossed she is one day able to buy the home and then we can redo EVERYTHING). I decided to go with Walls By Mur, my new favorite removable wall adhesive company! As I mentioned in this post, they are all kinds of fantastic and so easy to apply! Plus the team is very personable and helpful!
Jenny’s design style is a mix of modern, rustic and mid-century…she loves a lot of styles and is not afraid to think outside of the box! This is why I love working with her!
The yellow tassle curtains are from Serena & Lily, the shelves from West Elm along with the rocking birds and yellow vase, and the bird art is from The Land of Nod . The pouf and rocking chair are from Amazon and the sheepskin rug is from Pottery Barn. Oh and that amazing orb pendant you ask?? It’s from ZGallerie.
We also had a “big reveal” of the nursery to the big sister of Gracey, her name is Zoey. Her words were, “WOW…oh WOW…” she is such a cutie and a big fan of decorating and was quite a big help when we were installing.
Alright friends, what do you think?!
