The Fig House, update #1

The Fig House has broken ground — literally — the ground is all jacked up … and I mean literally jacked up, as they are using jack hammers today. Meanwhile we are busy planning, designing, shopping, and generally adjusting to the fact that I have bangs. It’s like how wood flooring has to acclimate in… Read More …

Boys room makeover

Two kids rooms in two weeks, folks. I’m practicing for the real deal; when Emily and/or Brian Junior grace us with their presence, then I’ll have like, five kids rooms under my belt so I can properly torture them with my unhealthy obsession of having their rooms be painfully adorable. But first, I must blog… Read More …

Tween bedroom redesign, sneak peek

Remember when I posted about this tween room like three months ago? Well she is all done, shot (by David Tsay), video’d, and ready to go … tomorrow. But to remind you of what is about to happen: Come back tomorrow and see the afters of one of my favorite rooms EVER. I partnered up… Read More …

Mid-Century Texan Outback Baby Shower

It’s a baby shower, folks. Except I’m officially renaming this one to “Send Off to Parenting Party” because that’s more what we decided to do. It’s not that anything is wrong with the more traditional baby showers, truly, but sometimes I think traditions don’t make much sense for everyone in every situation. First off, Leigh (the… Read More …

Side table makeover; styled two ways

Happy National Painting Week, friends. Last year I was all young and ambitious and painted Brian’s office for National Painting Week, by Sherwin Williams. This year I decided to tackle something a little more doable, something that only took a couple of hours, and was wildly satisfying. See? Boring vintage Ikea demilune table (from 1996,… Read More …

The Fig House; A New Project

Oh, friends. Friends, friends, friends, friends, friends. I’ve been working on a secret project in LA that can now be announced. It’s very exciting. It’s very challenging. It’s totally engrossing. It’s The Fig House. Boom. There she is. It’s my first venture into non-residential design and it’s Steve Fortunato’s (from Room Forty) next venture into… Read More …

It's an Instagram Contest

Clearly, I love a contest — what, with the mantel and nightstand styling contests. It’s VERY strange because I’m one of the least competitive people I know. In fact when I was auditioning for DesignStar the casting agents sensed my lack of desire to hit below the belt and tried grilling me about it. (They… Read More …

Gone Thrifting …

What do you call a weekend where you spend eight hours thrifting in the valley on one day, and five hours at the flea market the next with one of your best friends that is equally obsessed with shopping? The best weekend of my life — although Scott says that I say that every time… Read More …

My 12 Styling Essentials

I’ve been meaning to write this post FOREVER. I have so many go-to’s, or styling essentials, things that I buy and re-buy, and the world simply must know about them.  So here goes … As a stylist you do a million different styles of jobs at the same time. One might be a interiors shoot… Read More …

Sneak Peek into a DIY

Today is a sneak peak into a post I have for Sherwin Williams National Painting Week next Friday. Yes, next week you have to paint something in your house — it’s required by law. By the way, did anyone catch the National Sibling Day hype yesterday? Geez, nobody told me. With five siblings I could have killed… Read More …

Love … this wooden bathtub

Thought that brass bathtub from last week was amazing? Check out this wooden one: They are custom designed by William Garvey, so I can’t even imagine the price. Here are some more: Which tub would you rather sink into — the brass one or the wood one?
