honey i’m home

going on about 5 years now, ever since i met tamara honey at her adorable shop in pasadena, i’ve been hooked! she brings it like no other interior designer, one of a kind, vintage filled interiors that feel modern and welcoming all in one. her home, featured on lonny.com this past week is truly magical…



the master suite, is a dream in itself…

the inspiration of emily…

i’ve been thinking alot lately about how sad it makes me that i’ve never really “designed” my house, i’ve also been thinking alot about all those semi-creepy vintage oil portraits that i come across while thrifting..   i of course then, think of the fabulous emily henderson and her semi- creepy but amazing portraits and i feel happy.  then… i google “emily henderson portrait wall’ and i get this post, and now i feel good all around.  it’s always nice to hear that every other designers house hasn’t always looked like it’s fresh off the pages of domino. i need to work on making my house look a little less “thrift store” in some spaces.


circa 2011

IT’S A PROCESS and although i can tell a client that a millions times, it’s always been hard for me to agree with my own advice.  anyways… look how far you’ve come emily. Loving her new digs, via domino in case you’ve been dead or something in the past week.

dining rooms

while these dining rooms may look effortless… let’s be honest. Creating the perfect dining room can be quite tricky at times. Here i am struggling to commit to a dining room fixture, but i am pretty set on this baby.

Here are a few steps to create the perfect eclectic  dining room, without over thinking it!

  • Paint it white, wallpaper it or paint it a dramatic dark color ( if your space can handle that!)
  • Buy the perfect mix of vintage and modern, to create a unique one of a kind look
  • Bring in drama with your light fixture,  take down that disgusting $59 home depot light fixture ( I am talking to myself here!) Over-sized, colorful and vintage if possible
  • Art, art, art… make it weird. The more weird the better in my option. Who doesn’t have photos cows over their dining table
  • Bar cart… duh












Looking for great vintage sources, here are some of my favorites: chairish, local thrift and vintage  shops, etsy.
