It’s somehow the forth of July on Monday, when did that happen?!? If you are like me, you are going to be running around town this weekend for an outfit to wear to the BBQ/pool party/lake day you are heading to. My go-to look always include an easy dress I can throw over a swimsuit, some classic sunnies and an oversized Panama hat for the day, and a jean jacket for when it gets chilly during the fireworks. I don’t love to go overboard with the red, white and blue, so here are just a few last-minute pieces you can pick up at a store near-by to complete your outfit! Shopping links after the break… (more…)
After taking a week hiatus from the site, off working on some top secret projects, I am here! And so happy to get back to the blog…I missed you guys! I have been on a plant buying extravaganza for the studio, and new plants means new planters (I already purchased the first two on the buy side). With most having a hefty price tag, it’s time to start making more to hold my many plants and cacti. It’s pretty amazing how the DIY versions look as great as the store bought. Could you guess which were the DIYs?
I am so happy that the studio is finally coming together! This triangle shelf is putting a huge grin on my face, and looks perfect in the space. After looking at a bunch of inspiration, I sketched up a design for my amazing wood worker, Mike, who made it come to life. I know, I know… it’s not technically a DIY, but with so many project needing to get done in the studio, I asked for a little help. We decided on 8ft for all the sides, and made 30 degree miters to create the base. After centering the middle shelves, he channeled his inner gemometry to cut and fit the inner triangles. I am so so so happy with how it turned out, and had the most fun adding my personal touches to the shelves. Stay tuned because I am sure I will style and restyle the triangle many times! (more…)
I spotted a triangle shelf on Pinterest a while back and knew I had to have one in the studio. I love that they are such a statement piece on a blank wall, prefect for displaying all my succulents and chachkies. Plus, I have couple brick walls that are tough to hang anything on, so it’s the perfect way to decorate the blank space. Next up was deciding the configuration, and working with my favorite wood worker handyman to make it come to life. Stay tuned to see how it turned out. And in the meantime, how amazing are these above? So obsessed!
