Strange Things

With Halloween right around the corner, I found it the perfect time to share with you something on the creepier side of design. Now I don't celebrate Halloween - so this is really me just admitting my weirdness and displaying my love for these creepy little things on any old day of the year. They're definitely different and much more difficult to convince clients to want them included in their projects, but they're such fun pieces that would be total conversation starters in any space. I think every space needs a little "weird" element. Besides, what really is considered normal?

While I wouldn't go overboard by mixing too many of these in the same space, just one of them combined with a streamlined aesthetic in the rest of the space would be so fun to look at. It's all about balance.


Aren't these pieces so fun? Tell me I didn't just win you over!
If you're still thinking on it, tell me decor item you may be willing to try in your space!

Rad Ranges

There's nothing quite like a super special range set to take a kitchen design to the next level. With an upgrade like this, even in the simplest of kitchens read "custom."


Love List: 1stDibs

One of my favorite websites to peruse is Scrolling through their site is like skipping through a design fantasy land. Full of vintage pieces and desired antiques, the items sold here are so unique you couldn't dream some of them up. From classic designers to little found gems, any time spend browsing through is an inspirational moment. While many pieces are rare and extremely expensive art pieces, it's not un an common treat to find pieces to collect for just $100 bucks or so. 

Here are some of my recent faves - they're all kind of giving me fall vibes:


Items DO NOT last long (some of these could even be claimed before I get to click 'Publish') so when you find something you love and it's worth the splurge, buy it then and there!
Well, I mean, measure first :)

I'm starting a new blog series this fall called 'Cheap, Good' where I'll show you how to mix and match all these luxe, special pieces with conscious option to create a well-rounded, beautifully designed space. SIGN UP for the newsletter to be notified when that launches. I promise you won't want to miss it.
