I am using every single SPARE second of the day to design our new house but it’s so hard to do something beautiful and creative that doesn’t have a long lead time or isn’t insanely expensive. We are gutting the kitchen and 3 bedrooms in 3 months. Talk about a tight timeline. People think I am crazy! As I’ve been trolling the internet looking for inspiration there are a few designers or companies that have absolutely inspired the design of our new house and I wanted to start to highlight them. Hell. I want to hire them.
Many of you have probably heard of Commune, in case you are in the middle of designing your So-Cal inspired home and want some serious inspiration, here you go. I’m using that top photo as the direct inspiration for our courtyard, and the simple cabinet detailing above is so beautiful. We were going to do something similar to that but have decided to go in another direction. Long story short, they are some of the people that I look up to. They are an architecture and design firm and their work is both varied and yet totally them, plus their new line with West Elm is ridiculous.
So without further ado, get your pin-it button ready because these folks are absolutely pin-worthy.
Below is the Ace hotel in Downtown LA and it’s ridiculous.
I ate at Farmshop last year and it’s so beautiful and inspiring.
I’ve pinned those stairs 19 times and I’m absolutely going to do a version of that in our new house.
The floor tiles (above) are so beautiful and are making me think that I should just do that in our courtyard in two different colors …
But first I have to go to Panama to see this hotel in person.
Happy Friday, folks. I went to Oklahoma for two days which was so lovely and I’m extremely excited to lay around with kids, pin while Brian watches the ducks game, and NOT LOSE THE WORKOUT BET.
