Material Girls, #2; Eat, Pray, Glam.

Welcome to another Material Girls. In this episode our lady is global but in a high-end luxe and glam kinda way. Her name is Chloe. And here is her materials board:

green gold materials board Chloe loves the beach, but more in a Malibu way than in a hut in Costa Rica way. She’s that chick that wears beautiful vintage silk kaftans that just fall on her Paleo-diet eating frame. On most of us they just look like Muu Muu’s but on her they are kaftans. She loves everything pulled together, but mixes patterns effortlessly – as only a Malibu beach girl can. She read Eat Pray Love way before the film, has a perfect ‘Ballet Slipper’ pedicure at all times, has never had a tan line, and stocks gin and artisanal tonics in her bar for her Pepperdine graduate friends. She has a small dog, that people first call yappy but they eventually fall in love with. She is fancy, but approachable. Intelligent, but comes off casual. Has great taste, but doesn’t have to talk about it to prove it. Chloe is kinda awesome.

Here is what’s she likes in her home:

1. Teal tile | Classic Tile Flooring, Santa Monica 2. Silk fabric | The Fabric Store 3. Large brass knob | Liz’s Antique Hardware 4. White tile | Porcelanosa 5. Silver textured wallpaper | Astek 6. Turquoise wallpaper Quill, Seabreeze | Sydney Harbour 7. Flooring Jasper Hickory Collection (Natural) | Build Direct 8. Blue Square Tile | Classic Tile Flooring, Santa Monica 9. Blue and white stripe wallpaper Narrow Stripe in Regatta | Sydney Harbour 10. Rectangular brass ringpulls | Liz’s Antique Hardware 11. Dark blue leather | Edelman leather 12. Patterned fabric Rohet Flora Blue on Oyster | Mally Skok Design from Nicky Rising 13. Brass coil wire (sourced from the bead supply store).

  1. I think Chloe and I would be friends ;)

    It may be the Gossip Girl I’ve been binge-watching, but does Chloe evoke Serena Van Der Woodsen for anyone else? LOL Love these material girl posts! Very creative. Keep it up.

  3. So pretty and fun! Can the next “personality” you choose be something like a young art student who’s still figuring out her life. Someone with eclectic taste, a resourceful eye, a small budget, but a whole ton of creative vision! Someone who finds the Modern Art Museum deeply moving, who deeply longs to explore the world and learn, but still loves to go home to her favourite Garfield flannel sheets. Please? Pretty please?

  4. Chloe sounds fabulous and I would like to sit in her living room and drink kombucha.

    The product links would be more useful if they actually went to the tiles themselves instead of the whole manufacturer website…especially since you don’t include their names, only generic descriptions like “teal tile.” Help a girl out;)

      Hi Courtney,
      Thank you for your interest in the tiles. We don’t show our collection on our website as we don’t sell it online. Our showroom in Santa Monica has the full line and we accept orders over the phone or in the shop. If you need more info on any line, we can email it to you by request.

      All the best,
      Jon

    These personalities are ca-rackin’ me up!

  7. I am loving this. Time to implement!

  8. Heather

    I love this new feature! It’s so fun to see materials you pull together, and I can totally imagine what I would use where. Last time I wanted to be Poppy Hightower. This time I am all about Chloe. I want to live in both of their houses! Great job, Emily!

  9. Love it and love this new series!! Your designs are so inspiring. It’s always a pleasure to see what you’re loving.

  10. Chloe sounds a bit like Gwyneth Paltrow.

    I love the colour palette! I want to hear more about the cool chic living in the hut in Costa Rica.

  11. Emily

    Ever think about turning these into actual reader profiles selected from your adoring fans? Kind of a rift off of Stitch Fix but in the design world (making style accessible)? I think it would be even more interesting/fun to see these mood boards for real people. Best part about your blog to me is how you personalize things.

  12. Andrea

    This sounds like Mark’s Daily Apple. I love this series. Maybe you could do”supper busy, super goal oriented, full time working mom with kick-ass taste”.

    Oh wait, that’s you :)

  13. Kelli

    I adore this beachy, bohemian, blue scheme!

  14. These posts remind me of my days in school for fashion design. I ended up changing majors because I loved writing the stories about my make-believe clients much more than actually designing clothes for them ;).

  15. Wonderful beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your site,
    how can i subscribe for a blog web site? The account helped me a acceptable deal.
    I had been tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright clear
    idea
