Black and White Guest Room Preview

Over the past month, it has been super fun working with my client Paul on his amazing house in Burbank. Right now, we are focused on making a comfortable and cool guest room for his many worldly guests. Here is a sneak peak of the inspiration and finds along the way.

The actual headboard that we have chosen is a wingback made from a soft gray linen.

We are going to be adding pops of brass hardware, which lend an air of Hollywood glamour.

The nightstands are similar to the ones in the pictured in black, but they are vintage finds!!! I think the lightness of the base on this makes them perfect for his space.

(Please ignore the truck grill;)

We are having them lacquered in black. See all the pics from the Santa Monica Flea Market outing on my Instagram.

I love this black and white art collection that I found via Pinterest. Although, it may be a bit more modern than what we are going for, I think the prints and frames are perfect.

More black and white good ness… I really just can’t get over how great the white bedding, charcoal gray wall, and  the crystal clear lamps look with natural wood. I just love the simplicity.

Well, I hope you have plans for an amazing weekend! I will be at the Patchwork Festival, this Sunday in Long Beach, please swing by for a visit if you are in the area. (Details here)

Lighting Installation + Styling

The holidays are fast approaching and I have many exciting projects to share:

A DIY of this chair (restyled below) over at the awesome Canadian blog the Purple Fig. I created this step by step how to.

I also like this photo for something else…maybe a new banner…hint, hint;)

The past weekend was chock full of installations and ultimate satisfaction. I worked on the final lighting install of tranquil spacious bedroom. Adding a chandelier in the center of the room created a focal point and brightened the space.

In addition to this, we swapped out the Robert Abbey lamps above for cool 1920s style torpedo sconces. I still love the Rbert Abbey lamp base, but the shade needed to give off more light or be changed. The new sconces provide directional light for reading.

You can see more detailed view of this Residential Transformation that I have been working on all year.

Next, if you can believe it, I worked on yet another install this weekend. We completed the modern reception desk installation on Saturday. We got creative by reusing an existing piece of IKEA furniture and gave it an upgrade by customizing a facade for it. I’m liking the white for now, but I could also see it painted in gray in a few months.

Which color do you vote for the Reception Desk?

Happy Wednesday!

Autumn Inspiration + Bedroom Progress

Last weekend, we took a trip to the mountains with our friends Jess, Agke and Thurston. They showed us the perfect picnic spot on Mt. Baldy, the highest peak in the San Gabriel mountain range. Sometimes, I forget how lucky I was to have lived a stone’s throw away from this great mountain. Now, the 50 minute drive to the mountain on the weekends comes as a welcome respite.

I soaked in the gully of birch trees.

The leaves on the trees were just starting to change and the air was crisp and cool. I got so inspired to paint and finish an outdoorsy drawing, which I will add to my shop this week.

Next, I was hunting for florals for my client’s bedrroom, I came across beautiful purples and a fiery autumn orange.

Rolling Greens in Los Angeles, is simply my favorite place within the city to gather beautiful florals, real and silk. For the bedroom. we have decided on the faux variety….dirt and bugs in the bedroom, no thank you!

I liked the way they arranged the succelents that I picked out for this planter, the visual texture is looks great next to the window seat.

The bedroom is almost there and we are so proud! We will soon replace the silver lamps with bronze sconces and picture lighting and drumroll…a rococo chandelier. We went with the light nightstands as voted for by many of you. You can find out more about the evolution of the design here.

Again, your comments mean so much to me and I just love hearing about what projects are on the horizon for you. I will leave you a with a gorgeous shot of Santa Monica Beach sunset. I’m just luvin’ the purple and orange hues.

Joining the Lovely Blogger List

I’ve been able to connect with so many great blogger’s in the community lately.

I love their ideas and fresh perspectives on life. I also really loved Rue Magazine’s latest DIY, can’ t wait to try it.

Which is why I became really excited to join Rachel’s blogger list over at Lovely Clusters.

In order to become a part of it, I will share a little bit about myself in an effort as well to reaquaint and show you around my little blogger part of the world.

Pink Pianos by Hilary Hahn is a place to connect the dots between Art, Design, and worldly inspiration. Here I showcase, vintage resurfaced furniture products and reinvented found objects. I love how a cast-off piece of décor becomes a functional work of art. I consider my adventures from Europe and India to tiny cities along the Pacific Coast as the grounds for one massive treasure hunt.

Her abundant adventures from Europe and India to tiny cities along the Pacific Coast provide a constant source of inspiration and finds. She believes you can take a journey anywhere even in your own back yard.

My friend Annie is also a source of inspiration for me as a blogger. Many of the interior designs that I publish are part of a collaboration between the two of us. I know lots of you have seen our latest project the Girl’s Bedroom Metamorphosis. Before I forget, here is a final pick that shows Mia’s bed that we designed.

The duvet cover was custom designed out of hand dyed silk. I am really happy with the way it all came out!

Another blog, that I can not take my eyes off is The Sartorialist, which I know is a favorite among many.

I love to meet other designers, curators, and bloggers.

Nature is a constant inspiration to me!

It’s been so nice to meet other artists and have them share their ideas, inspiration, and opinions. Rachel’s Blogger List is fabulous because it groups bloggers by region helping to connect us with each other and a larger audience.
