Falling for Throws

September 20, 2015

If you're anything like me, you love when the leaves start changing color, PSL's (pumpkin spiced lattes) come back at Starbucks, and it gets a bit cooler so you snuggle up on the sofa with your favorite throw. The first day of fall is just a few days away so I came up with a list of my top 5 favorite throws perfect for fall -- different styles and textures. I'm in search of a new one, too, so I may be seeing one of these in my home soon!

1 // 404 locust slidell throw // $69 // urban outfitters

2 // zuri throw - teal // $51.60 // lulu & georgia

3 // horizontal double ribbed throw // $79 // west elm

// 5-lb chenille solid throw // $79 // restoration hardware

5 // faux sheepskin throw // $99 // pottery barn

My sofa is a gray, area rug is a neutral pattern with a navy/teal color, and the pillows on the sofa are cream with a brass/gold print on two, so I'm thinking the teal one from Lulu and Georgia will be a nice way to tie in the blue. However, I'm torn because the faux sheepskin one from Pottery Barn screams "snuggle and watch movies with me". There's no harm in getting more than one, right? Options are good :)


New Obsession: RH Teen

September 16, 2015

Okay guys, I'm about to show you some serious eye candy. Just last month Restoration Hardware announced RH Teen -- and just by the teaser photo, I was already so excited. Now with the new website up and running, there is SO much to be excited about and it's no joke. These pieces can be used in adult spaces as well as teen. Pricing is less than RH Home but that's not saying too much but at least you DO know the quality is there. These pieces are truly something teens can grow into and have for years to come -- that's what excites me most. Here are some of my favorite photos from the new website ( I have to come up with a list of my favorite items). Oh, and for those of you who don't know I now work at Restoration Hardware so I can't wait to get my hands on some designs where I can include some of these items. Definitely check the new RH Teen website out for more! 

How amazing are these spaces? I'm loving it all but the decor is especially 
on point. Enjoy!


NY Resident: September Issue

September 4, 2015

Happy Friday! September is here and I'm pretty excited for the east coast fall weather that I have missed living in California for the past 2 years. If you don't know already I write a bit for the NY Resident Magazine -- primarily articles on trending real estate in New York City and also design features. So check out the magazines website -- they have a link to the actual issue. SO much good content that is worth reading, even if you're not from New York, from design to food to getaways and more.  This months design feature was all about having pieces in your home that serves purpose without sacrificing style. The real estate feature is on The Charles which is quite the luxurious gem in Manhattan. Enjoy and I hope you have a Happy Labor Day! Let the festivities begin...
