Oh Joy party at The Fig House

Well, folks, The Fig House is up and running. They have a ton of weddings, parties, and personal events booked (you can even just book a huge dinner party there) but no one really thinks about it as a day time venue – and its such a beautiful one. No one except my friend Joy and… Read More …

Oh Joy for Target is here!

Well now that my partnership with Target is announced (Yeah!!!! and thank you all who left such supportive comments last week on the announcement post) it seemed only appropriate that I shout out my good friend Joy’s collection.  Joy and I have worked together for years and have become good friends although we certainly don’t… Read More …

Oh Joy’s Studio Mini-Reveal!!

As you know I’ve been working on designing my good friend Joy’s studio the last few months. Well, it’s all finished, folks, and we can finally post it. But of course no good/smart blogger spends 11 hours writing a 12 page long FRIDAY post, please — I know you all are just counting the minutes… Read More …

A kid-friendly, baby proof yet stylish living room, ohjoy 2.0.

The words, “kid-friendly,” “child-proof,” “storage solutions,” and “safe” are quite possibly the least sexy words to hear as a designer. I’ll go further than that, we run from them like Charlie Sheen runs from sobriety or Ramona Singer runs from sanity. Design is a constant battle between form and function, and in this case Captain… Read More …

Anthology Magazine, with the lovely Joy.

You all probably already know about this one:  Anthology Magazine. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate a magazine that i can touch and hold and sleep with, and add to my prized collection of magazines and catalogues that i can’t seem to live without.  A magazine that comes to my door (although truthfully… Read More …

A Floral Glam Nursery Reveal

Today we are introducing a floral glam nursery for a pretty wonderful family. Sara Sugarman (founder of Lulu and Georgia) was pregnant with her first baby (a lucky little girl) and wanted a beautiful, happy, space in which to welcome that little dumpling home. I love designing nurseries (especially with like-minded design-oriented folk like Sara) so I jumped on the job pretty fast. Nurseries are my favorite rooms to design: they are so easy and fun.

But if you ONLY have small things on your shelves they lose their individual aesthetic value and your whole space can look VERY cluttered.

And The Winners Are . . .

STYLED Instagram Contest Winners

There were over 800 entries for the #STYLEDthebook Instagram contest. I can’t thank you all enough for buying, styling, photographing, and posting/sharing those photos. I’m convinced that it’s because of you that the book has become a New York Times Bestseller (WHAT!). I’m not sure what to do with that information except open that bottle of Cristal that we’ve been saving for years (this weekend, is the plan).
