Hey All, Today I have a cool collab to show you! I partnered with method on their “fear no mess” campaign! They challenged me to tackle a messy DIY around my house and I thought it would be super to restore the cracked tiles in the lovely old fireplace in my daughter’s new room.  I LOVE the look of the tiles, so I didn’t want to replace them, and I didnt even mind the cracked look, but of course I didnt want her to hurt her feet or stub her toe while walking on them. And so I decided to fix them up by grouting the areas that were cracked. This can be a super messy project, especially … [Read more...]

Cheerleader The Movie

My friends made a movie! Irving Franco, a childhood friend of mine, released his first film Cheerleader last year and is quickly being recognized in film festivals around the world. He's being called  "one of the most unique and intriguing new voices in indie film." and the film has been called "a brilliantly insane style piece, but with a surprising amount of heart. It feels like a collision of The Virgin Suicides and Election, but, at the same time, is wholly its own film. " The movie's title lends to a simple notion of a young, doe-eyed cheerleader and when we meet Mickey, she is just … [Read more...]

LACK OF COLOR

It's no secret, I'm a summer person. I love the sun, beach, ocean etc. That being said, fall has its perks. Chunky sweaters, plaid shirts, leather jackets, boots, fireplaces, it's super cozy. This fall I'm loving Australian hat company, Lack of Color's new offerings. Founded in 2011, the company is best known for their effortlessly chic, multi- seasonal, limited editions hat. They range from straw beach hats, to wide brimmed 100 percent Australian wool fedoras.  I want to own every one! The colors are generally neutral and timeless. It makes every outfit awesome and edgy without having to try … [Read more...]

Hey! Soon I can't believe it, but I'm doing the very popular Calling it Home One Room Challenge this season. For those not familiar - a bunch of bloggers and designers each take on a decorating project of one room, which they complete in 6 weeks - and share with the readers once a week. This is week one, intro and inspo week. Sooooo, admittedly, most of my "design" projects have been for my own self. Which is a good thing, to me, cause I can do whatever I want, answer to know one, and take my sweet time coming up with a plan. For my own self, I'm not even sure I believe in "decorating" per … [Read more...]

Although Ettore Sottsass received his diploma in architecture in 1939, he is most famous for creating furniture and consumer products, founding the Memphis Milano design movement.  In 1966 he described himself as an “architect, interior designer, colourist, hypothetical and potential builder of villas, private houses, areas for rest, pleasure and distraction – poor designer of palaces and public assembly places, enemy of barracks, ministries, and centres of moralizing in general.” Sottsass did design private homes and shops more towards the end of his career. One interesting house was the The … [Read more...]
