Fall is in the air…

Leaves are turning and there’s a chill in the air. Fall has officially arrived in San Francisco!
This is absolutely my favorite time of year. It’s when I bring out the cedar and fir scented candles [“Fir and Firewood” from Anthropologie is the BEST], throw fur blankets everywhere, dust off the holiday decorations, and pull my UGG boots and cozy sweaters out of the closet.

It’s also the time for Fall florals with a gorgeous new palette of colors like his arrangement overflowing with Ranunculus, Orchids, Garden Roses and Eucalyptus. It’s the perfect blend of acid greens, oxblood, blush and persimmon.

So inspired by this arrangement, I’m going try my hand at replicating it for a centerpiece in my dining room.

So it’s an early morning trip to the flower mart tomorrow where I’ll hopefully find all of these ingredients, including the container🤞🏻🙏🏻🤞🏻

Will post a pic of what I come up with, wish me luck!

In Love With Color!

I cannot get enough of color and these breakfast nooks bathed in bright shades of yellow just shout HAPPINESS!

This design from Krista Ewart achieves a beautiful balance between classic and modern, and I’m sure inspires the most lively and warm gatherings around this table…

Also LOVE this kitchen nook with banquette and built-ins designed by Lindsey Coral Harper. I mean, where do I start?!

The over-sized pendant light fixture with drum shade, the round table and upholstered round stools create a through line for the eye, with multiple shades of yellow popping here and there, making this space sheer perfection!

I’ve always been obsessed with the color Green (inherited from my mother), but this Granny Smith apple green island and gingham ceiling from Gideon Mendelson is nothing short of genius. 


And you can never go wrong with a tableau of plates to tie it all together. Don’t you agree?!

Floral Tabletops That Inspire

With Spring comes the undeniable urge to entertain and take the party outdoors!

For me so much of the ocassion is about flowers and tabletop decor that transport your guests someplace special.

This new twist on a floral centerpiece, combined with gold rimmed crystal and  cascade of taper candles, creates a gorgeous and dramatic setting. And translates to a formal dinner or backyard BBQ! 


Thanks to @Calypsostbarth and @everylastdetailblog for sharing this inspirational concept!

Inspired Entryways

The entryway to a home can be the most magical space in the house, greeting you and setting the tone for everything to come. This design from Burnham Design (who I just started following on Instagram) is so perfectly elegant and serene and inviting, I want to move in!

This design also demonstrates the power of a table and a bookshelf for telling a story. They serve as a blank canvas on which you can layer elements that take the space far beyond the ordinary. In this case the way the designer clusters the vases in an over-the-top way I like to call “chunking it up”, adding dimension, volume and color. Combined with the recessed bookshelves that she treats  almost as an art gallery with a beautiful, monochromatic  mix of prints, books and art objects. Genius!
