Wardrobe Building Blocks


When I did my Instagram Q & A last week a lot of you said you would like to see more about building out a capsule wardrobe. I don’t follow a true capsule wardrobe per se, but I have paired down my closet a lot over the past few years. Instead of reaching for fast […]

Hands down rugs are by far the item I get asked about the most. Almost every single day I have an email or an Instagram DM asking where a rug is from, if I have a good cheaper alternative and if I would recommend said rug. I have had just about every type of rug […]

It seems like it hasn’t stopped raining around here lately which has me craving warm spring days even more than usual. With spring on the horizon I am getting excited to start bringing back some entertaining posts. I am kicking it off with the launch of Anthropologie’s beautiful new home collection. Their dishes and accents […]

I have wanted to do a monthly recap for a while now. I feel like I am always eager to get on to the next month that I don’t take the time to recap what I liked about the previous. I also love the idea of recapping some of my favorite purchases of each month. […]

Happy March! I am so excited for a new month and a new Spotify playlist. As we inch closer to spring I am in full change of season mode. I am craving more upbeat songs to get me out of the winter blues (albeit very light in Northern California). We recently replaced all of our […]

Nancy Meyers and her team of set decorators, specifically Beth Rubino have been creating […]

I am so happy to be writing this post because it means I finally got it together and organized our bedroom closet. This has been a long time coming as we have been in our apartment over two years, but one of those annoying things I kept putting off. I went back and forth for […]

If you have been following me for a while now you know I get on these kicks when it comes to what I am inspired by. I don’t know if I have been watching too much Downton Abbey lately, but recently I can not get enough of the English countryside. I am so drawn to […]

I have done a few posts on coffee table styling in the past, but over the years I have really simplified what goes on our table. It pretty much always looks like different variations of the same thing with a couple building blocks that make it look styled, but easy to move around. Books are […]

I have gone back and forth with having a desk in our apartment a few times. We originally had one in the window, then the bedroom and then got rid of it completely. For a while I loved not having a workspace in the living room as it felt more open and looked a bit […]
