I’ve been using Art.com as a source for specifying art for client projects and using on client concept boards to convey how art selections will fit into a room setting. I recently had the opportunity to experience a new app from Art.com: the SwitchArt app. A fun app that allows you to upload images (your pictures) to the app, select to be printed, & easily switch out with a magnetic backing for an ever changing art look.

 

“The SwitchArt app from Art.comSwitchArt is the simplest way to change out prints, often and easily, in the same frame. Watch a tutorial here to see how it works. The great thing about SwitchArt is if you want a new look, simply peel off the print and replace it with a new one in seconds. No hammer required. No need to buy a new frame.
The new Art.com SwitchArt App makes things even easier and allows you to bring your photo stream straight to your walls. Simply download the app, buy a pack, and begin uploading personal photos from their your camera roll, Instagram feed or Facebook page. Each pack includes a SwitchArt™ Magnetic Frame in the color and size of your choice, and a number of prints you select.”

Art.com’s line up of mobile apps for art selection and ordering.

  

  

One tool that is a great feature on Art.com is the ability to view different frames and mat features for art pieces. I use this for client project selections and screenshot the images for my concept boards. It’s such a great way to incorporate the right look into a room design – or helpful for the consumer trying to select the best frame option.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend an event with Bosch Appliances at their headquarters in my (native) Orange County, CA. The two day event included a handful of designers and bloggers to experience, learn, and interact hands-on with the Bosch line up of products. (One thing I can say is we were very well fed over the course of just a few days!)

Our first evening began with cocktails and this view, from Laguna Beach, CA at The Deck restaurant.

The evening progressed to a sunset dinner hosted by Bosch at The Deck restaurant where we met and talked with many of the a Bosch team members.

Bosch even added their “stamp” to our desserts.

 

Early the next morning we were straight over to the Bosch Experience & Design Center, a full showroom of product displays and a full functioning kitchen. I took to Bosch’s integrated coffee machines. The built-in coffee makers provide everything from coffee, espresso, cappuccino, at the touch of a button in record making seconds. As a coffee connessier, I was addicted. And kept going back, for more, and more, and more. As everyone knows! So good.

By late morning, we were learning everything about Bosch design and engineering with demonstrations in their modern state of the art kitchens.

And by noon we were in the kitchen ourselves, with interactive cooking and preparing our lunch for the day! (Bloggers seen here teamed up with Bosch employees.)

Fortunately everything cleaned up well, in the quietest of dishwashers from Bosch.

 

Our afternoon was spent with presentations by Dwell and round table discussions.

Thank you to Bosch and Dwell for hosting us!

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.

Last month, just before the holidays, I received an invite from the cool guys at Clutter, to attend an event at Fleurish which included drinks and food and floral making arrangements. Fleurish is a local florist in Brentwood (Los Angeles) that provides a “bar” to create and make your own floral arrangements. A fun concept and a great place to team up for an event or party as the Clutter guys did!

And the question: Who/what is Clutter? They are a new company revolutionizing the idea of storing your extra “clutter” or perhaps a few things around the house you’d like “out” yet not ready to part with and maybe just don’t have the space to store it either. The people from Clutter will come and package up those extras, haul it away, inventory it, and store it. All until you are ready or needing for them to bring it back!

The “flower bar” where creations are made!

My creation. It was deemed “organic” while my partner in crime Deanna (a wedding planner), churned out something much more architectural in design. Ironically. She has a keen eye inherent of her event planning business.

And a special shout out to Josh from Clutter. He has skill when it comes to assembling gift bags. Thank you for the gifts Clutter! I have a special gift certificate giveaway to come!

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.

DaVill offers various types of blind options, such as these basswood versions.

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

Solar shades, like the above, along with other cellular and roller shades are available too.

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

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.

This past week I attended a special event at Kelly Wearstler’s flagship boutique on Melrose for the celebration of the book, “In The Spirit Of Beverly Hills” published by Assouline. In attendance was both Kelly Wearstler and Nancie Clare, author of the book. The amazing photos in this post were taken by my friend and photographer, Marcia Prentice.
