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.

European Garden + Modern Porch Inspiration

I am content to say that this summer has been all about being outdoors, fresh air, swimming and European vacation is on the not-so-distant horizon. I wanted to share with you the Modern European porch that I have been designing along with a few gorgeous photos to leave your Monday feeling inspired.

You may remember Mary Anna’s Porch refresh from a few weeks ago. It is coming together as realized from our Inspiration Board above. We are still in search of the perfect garden stool table. I am really leaning towards the white one in the photo above. .

Here are some leafy reddish plants that my client had potted an placed near her charming boites aux lettres.

Below at left, is an arrangement that I adore! We just had it custom made for her dining room table. At right is one of my favorite combinations of potted lavender and and tiny white blooms.

One last little morsel that I found on Pinterest (oh yeah…I’m hooked!) This is something that may guide my design for our Restoration Home in Kentucky. Looking to put in a more charming and narrow pathway leading from the front of the home to the back. I’m imagining a combination of these two, with large flagstones and moss in between. Which one do you like best…and why? 

Happy Monday folks!
