Guest Room: Monday peak

I know I’ve been teasing you all with the Guest Room pics that I have been working on.

In fact, in a September post I released the inspiration board for this project. Well, alot has changed since then. The design has evolved into something far more sophisticated (as things do) and now our board includes a Lucite desk, black nightstand, and inkblot art.

I am partnering with Annie May of Yolksy on this project and here is what she had to say about our design process:

“The client had a suzani she purchased a couple years ago, when we were working on phase 1 of the design of her house. We decided to make this suzani into the coverlet for the queen size bed. It turned out even better than I could’ve imagined. We purchased a high thread count white sheet set and had a seamstress add the border with the mitered edges, so it would fall nicely over the corners or fold perfectly to wrap under the mattress. The adorable blue velvet pouf accent pillow looks so great with the Suzani”

Annie found Kerry Cassil’s Fall 2009 collection of fabrics on the windows which really pulls out the blue in the suzani. It was our second choice to Blue Chevron fabric or Ditto Blue from Madeline Weinrib. We couldn’t justify the costs of the Weinrib fabric for this room, so the ikat panels from Cassil really worked! Love them!  We added sheer linen panels from West Elm underneath for layering and a little sunlight.
The fab mid-century nightstand is from TINI, one of my favorite stores to shop at this year. Last year, I found myself constantly checking their online shop and I’m so glad they now have a showroom close-by!
To find out more about the bed, artwork, and accessories visit Annie’s site for the full scoop.
I will also be sharing a boy’s room in this same residence once all is finished up!

L.A. Downtown Artwalk

I finally made it!

...to visit all the wonderful galleries in downtown Los Angeles during Thursday night Artwalk.


Is that a spinal column???

For a complete list of participating galleries and how to be a part of the action visit the L.A. Artwalk site.

I leave you with one image to inspire you to be free and creative this weekend!


Both of these fabulous inkblots come from Sherri Robinson, an artist whose work I had the pleasure of seeing again last night. The colorful inkblot at the bottom left was actually a sample for a special commission from the artist…

The cute little critter you see at the top left is a lamp base from the Golden Gopher and hip and trendy bar located in the heart of downtown.

I’m off to yoga and a full weekend!
