I was recently introduced to the online source of Fiber and Water: a collection of accessories, including wall art and pillows, printed on burlap. Hand-crafted in Maine, with many patterns having a nautical theme, I was instantly attracted given my beach and boating upbringing on the Southern California coast. So much so, I encouraged Phoebe of Fiber and Water to reach out to our local boutiques, especially those of my hometown of Newport Beach and Balboa Island. Here are some of my favorite finds!

Love this coral pillow in teal.

The Reef Knot: Remiscent of my boating days.

 

A classic sailboat.

 

A collection of map prints are available in both pillows and wall art.

Of course, I had to find my home state.

Vintage prints are also available.

 

Monograms and custom prints make for great gifts.

 

For the dog lovers: cute pug prints.

 

 

Last but not least: I’m loving all the pattern prints!

A fun orange chevron.

I was recently looking for a window treatment company for one of my online design projects and came across DaVill Blinds: a competitively priced site for shades, shutters, and blinds backed by the trust of two former interior designers. Given their motto is they never have a sale, I felt the stability of pricing and being able to buy when ready (vs the sometimes rush to buy my clients get to score a sale). In other words, a great resource for clients who may implement the selections on their own time and budget.

Blackout roller shades (great for bedrooms) come in a variety of colors.

And blinds that are available in a range of color options, metallics too

Lauren Conrad’s chic and colorful Beverly Hills penthouse was recently featured in InStyle magazine. Pictured above Lauren sits in her home office on a punchy orange tufted sofa and an area rug seen on the floor made from recycled silk saris.

Continuing with puncy colors is a custom rounded banquette in her breakfast nook complemented by an Eero Saarinen table.

Her high ceiling living room with graphics and a black and white theme is remiscent of an airy New York loft, which she wanted the room to have a feel for.

To add visual interest to the living room, she added moulding and brick veneer, then had it white washed to look more aged!

Her dark mirrored bar includes a black laquered ceiling.

The dining room table and chairs are vintage complemented by a contemporary light fixture.

The Christopher Guy showroom on Beverly Boulevard, in the heart of the West Hollywood Design District, is in full festive holiday mode. The front windows are decorated with gifts and an elegant white tree among sophisticated Christopher Guy furniture pieces. I happen to pass by the other evening en route to an event and catpured a few pictures of the glam window display.

Supermodel Karlie Kloss shares her first NYC apartment, located in the West Village, on a quiet street just a few blocks from the Hudson River. She enlisted interior designer Nate Berkus to help her create the chic look go her very first home.

image

The goal was to create a look that reflects her style, in relating to fashion, to mix and match the same way she does with clothes.

One of her favorite spots, she says, is the kitchen – where she has a passion for baking cookies. I love the multi-level / stairs to kitchen with the paned glass and tiny dining banquette.

As I was browsing Pinterest, I came across this picture of a charming powder room. When I clicked on the source it took me to a blog who’s writer is a Newport Beach based blog. Newport Beach is my hometown and the above image is quintessential beachy, evoking the homes of where I grew up. While it may be winter across the rest of the nation, here in Southern California it currently remains sunny and 70’s. The blue hues like in the above seem to fit in well here, year round.
