I was recently introduced to the eBoutique: Perry Clark Home, an online source for unique finds and goods relating to decorative accessories, art, textiles, tableware, furnishings, & more. It’s an artisan influenced of well curated selections.


Some of my favorite Fall finds and gift giving items are their lush textiles and throws in neutral earthy tones.


I am loving these Kashwere Houndstooth Luxury Throws. They come in black / cream, slate gray / white, & malt / cream.


A worldly collection of art featuring architecture and street scenes are available.

Some of the unique tableware items on the site are these:


I like the rustic and modern look of these pepper and salt mill set. They are made from brushed stainless steel and acacia wood.


These “dash” and “pinch” salt and pepper cellars are cute too.



On the whimsical side these bicycle plates designed by Artisan Rae Dunn are available in four distinctively designed bikes.


The rustic theme flows into the furnishings category. This Farmhouse Dining Table is custom made by Sovie Woodworking exclusively for Perry Clark Home. It’s handcrafted of old growth pine reclaimed from a turn of the century barn in Northwest Ohio.


Last but not least, pretty scented candles always make great gifts!

A friend of mine was recently interested in upgrading his pendant lighting in his rental, a dining room area that needed better quality of lighting. He was intrigued with the idea of a drum shade pendant. Thanks to my friends at Lamps Plus, they were able to help out with just the right fixture.


Given a few options, he chose the Possini Euro Drum Pendant in white. The 20″ diameter size was perfect for his round dining table and the white shade provides added clear white lighting that the space needs.


The same fixture also comes in a bronze color.



The best part? The pendant was an easy DIY install that he was able to change out and install without an electrician. A little modifying of the cord length and it works perfect for his space!

Thank you to Lamps Plus!

Dwell on Design returned to Los Angeles this year for another round of great design events and exhibitions, seems like it gets better and better every year! This year I explored the show to see both new finds and old finds, but always interesting new showcases. From ideas on landscaping to space-maximizing bathroom ideas from Geberit, here are some of my highlights from this year’s #DOD2015.


Love the colorful and graphic fabrics available from The Shade Store.


A highlight, and absolute favorite, the faucets and fittings from Franz Viegener – beautiful minimal streamlined design!


More from the Buenos Aires based company, Franz Viegener.


Beautiful hardware from Franz Viegener too.


For a second year in a row, I’ve had the opportunity to team up with Geberit. I’ve since come to know their products and have seem many installed in both commercial and residential use that look amazing. Pictured above, is the Geberit Monolith and Sigma50 Flush Plate. Both save space, operate quietly and conserve water. For more, visit them on Houzz and Pinterest.


Another show favorite, the beautiful cabinetry from Bauformat.


Cabinet colors come in an array of colors and finishes, from Bauformat.


Fun tile selections from Bedrosians.


A fun section featured at Dwell on Design was the Outdoor area filled with great ideas and sources for landscaping.


StepStone, Inc had these cool hexagon concrete pavers.


Loved seeing the modular home designs as were on display, just like the ones on display last year. This year’s were even more uniquely designed from an interiors standpoint.


Lacava has the classiest vanities.



Fun, colorful chairs from Bend Goods!

Looking forward to next year’s Dwell on Design – the show that keeps getting bigger & better! Thank you to Geberit for inviting me to provide show coverage!

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!

Coverings, the largest global tile & stone exhibition in North America, will bring its spectacular array of products, conference programming, and many show floor features — all for FREE — to Orlando, Florida this year. Taking place April 14 – 17, 2015 at the Orange County Convention Center, registrants can check out over 1,000 exhibitors from around the world, refine their skills and and learn more at over 75 free specialized training and education sessions.

To get excited for this year’s show, Coverings has shared their top tile trends of 2015 to be on the lookout for at the show. Want to see it in person? We’re giving a way a free trip* to Coverings, including round-trip transportation and accommodations at the show. To win, share a photo on Twitter or Instagram of your favorite stone or tile inspiration with the hashtag #Coverings2015, and be sure to follow @MaterialGirls, @Coverings, and @CoveringsShow (Instagram) to qualify as a winner. (Contest is open until March 6th!)

Here are some of the latest trends to expect at this year’s show:


Once considered a more “retro” design, hexagons are now making a huge comeback, adding a unique element in designs modern to traditional. Hexagon tiles are available in sizes from small to large, with a 10-11” size among the most popular. You can find it in porcelain, ceramic, stone, and exteriors, as well as 3-dimensional and even paired with the other trends – including wood.


A suitable choice for both interior and exterior, wood porcelain has become very popular over the past few years. Seen as an attractive and easy-to-clean alternative to real wood, digital printing techniques have allowed the wood tiles to look as close to the real thing as possible. Manufacturers are now adding additional style and design by printing patterns on top of the “wood,” such as damasks and other bold prints.



The emergence of pop art-themed tiles has been quite prominent across design trade shows, including Cersaie 2014. These tiles are designed with bold colors and often incorporate the use of 3-D, a technique Alena has seen across many emerging trends. Artist collections are also hot, as Alena highlights collaborations with Keith Haring and inspiration from Roy Lichtenstein.

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.
