Love At First Sight

That is the feeling I felt when I saw these chairs, love. I love the clean lines, the minimalism, the simplicity of the structure, and the effortless way they go with everything. HOWEVER, and that’s a big however, they are sort of in bad shape. The frame of the chairs are made from metal, andContinue reading “Love At First Sight”

All The Things I Want for the Apartment I Haven’t Moved Into Yet

That’s right, I haven’t moved in yet, but really soon I will be officially a resident of Austin, Texas.

I’m Fully Aware How Insane This Is, But I Mean, C’mon

I understand that lifestyle blogs are sort of a way to present a life that is aspirational, which is really a weird sort of euphemism for making people envy you and shop accordingly, but at what point do we draw the line? By that I mean, if they are to be aspirational, then how much canContinue reading “I’m Fully Aware How Insane This Is, But I Mean, C’mon”

Style Icon, Actress, and Interior Designer, Diane Keaton

    I remember the first time I watched a Diane Keaton in the Godfather. I loved her character because my father is Italian, and I never totally related or felt culturally Italian. I always identified with my mother’s Jewish or otherwise non-cultural Americanized form of living. I felt like an outsider in my familyContinue reading “Style Icon, Actress, and Interior Designer, Diane Keaton”

The Warmth of Fall in Sunny California

Oh, fall, that somewhat magical time of the year when my hair gets oily, my skin gets dry, and no matter how many layers I wear I can never get warm enough.

Monochromatic is My Jam

Monochromatic decor has really been appealing to me lately. The devil is in the detail.

Stranger Than Fiction, a Reality Check Into Studio Living

About a month ago Morgan and I moved into a new apartment.

The Kansas City Kitchen Remodel

A good friend of mine recently purchased their first home in Kansas City. Along with that, they took on the responsibility of refinishing the wood floors, painting the interior/exterior re-designing the kitchen.

William McClure’s Bedroom is so Dreamy

I’ve been kind of obsessed with William McClure ever since I saw his sofa in Southern Living. I became so obsessed with it actually that I repainted the design that was on the fabric as wall art.

The Luna’s Lovely Little California Farmhouse

The Luna’s are a funny, friendly and amazingly kind couple that I had the pleasure of decorating their living and dining room area.
