KITCHEN REMODEL

this kitchen is where we spend A LOT of our time. it opens up to our dining room and living room, and some of my favorite moments are me standing at the stove while justin sits at the bar and entertains me, or when i can watch and interact with everyone mingling on the couch.

before i moved in the previous owners had taken the kitchen from what looked like this…

and completely transformed it so when i moved in, it looked like the below photos. it’s SO impressive what they turned the space into! after living here for a few years i wanted to add some personal touches and updates to the room. my good friend has such amazing taste and helped us bring some new life into the kitchen. (she also designed our patio HERE and our dining room HERE)

AFTER:

the first thing we decided on was the CABINETS! they were already ikea cabinets with silver pulls and luckily sarah has  that fit perfectly with what we currently had (best ikea hack!) this subtle update made such a big difference in person.

the brass handles elevated the design and made it feel much more like my personality. i love how they age and grow with character over time. sarah also designed these handles for ! she’s a multi-talented gal alright.

these are the specific shapes we used: and

we also added a for some extra storage up top!

and how about the backsplash! cannot forget that. i went so back and forth, do i go crazy colorful? all white? pattern? all marble? we finally landed on this brass inlay tile from (they have some seriously awesome tile) and designed this unique way of laying it out. i LOVE the end result and the shine it has in the morning light. it really ties the space together.

our little kitchen nook we kept simple and full of light. the and (they are actually really comfortable and work outside too). the light above the table is from ikea. maybe someday i will add some benches for more storage, but for now i love the simplicity!

you can see and ! these small changes and some styling made such a big visual difference and make me happy on a daily basis. slowly but surely making each room in this house very special to us. thank you for your help and beautiful taste!

and thank you , my favorite interior photographer for capturing these stunning photos! she has A+ taste too, check out her

let me know if you have any questions! xx bri

A RELAXATION KIT!

relaxation | designlovefest

we had the best weekend celebrating bri’s bachelorette at in laguna beach last weekend. everything went exactly as planned, the weather was gorgeous and it was really just the perfect weekend. the theme for the weekend was relaxation which was exactly what we did! since bri is the queen of chill, i wanted to put together gift bags for everyone that included some of her favorite items so that people could use them over the weekend and take them home to keep them calm in their own lives. – joanie

an essential part of the relaxation kit was . their waffle robes are so soft and cozy, everyone was wearing theirs all weekend long to breakfast, the beach and lounging by the pool.

all the guests also got which are perfect thing to hang around the hotel in. they are cut slightly oversized which makes them really comfy. the is my favorite.

bri is a serious candle lover so of course we had to include that as well! this one from P.F candle co in their scent is amazing! we’ve loved their candles and scents for awhile now (they are LA based!) and their is beautiful.

our obsession for runs deep, their is at the top of my Christmas list every year and i really notice such a difference in my skin when i’m using their products. we include their in the gift bags as that’s one of bri’s favorite products to use at home and on the road. it’s great for bringing along to the pool for a midday spritz or to use before heading to bed.

and finally, espresso bites for when you really wanna chill.

had the best time putting these kits together! these are truly some of bri’s favorite items and i love thinking about people getting to use the items at home to relax and remember the weekend! Xx

A LIGHTBOX PARTY (AND AN LA EVENT)!

lightbox | designlovefest

i feel like i’ve said this a couple of times already but this year is off to such a great start. things feel positive, light and fun and i’m going to lean into that, enjoy it while it last. one of my favorite partnerships from last year was with and i’m so excited to be working with them again. they create lab-grown diamonds and the company is built around the idea of celebrating female friendship and changing the idea that diamonds have to be given only as romantic gifts. with valentine’s day right around the corner we wanted to throw a party that was a celebration of girls, a Galentine’s day of sorts! it came at the perfect time as it was the week of my birthday so we added that into the list of things to celebrate and the party ended up being such a blast. in keeping with the idea of jewels, the theme was sparkle from the sparkly vintage shirt i wore, to glitter in the cocktails. we really glitzed it up.

i definitely don’t take it for granted that i am surrounded by some many amazing women who have seen me at my best and worst. i feel truly lucky to have these friendships, they are like family to me. and as you can see, were a big hit!

for the party, i got to work with to create the arrangements and installations and it was a dream! she’s so talented (and my wedding florist) and everything turned out just as i’d hoped. i love the textures she uses in her arrangements and how she’ll create something dramatic that’s rooted in a tiny vase.

we were lucky enough to host the party at the cutest little mezcal bar that’s close to our studio, . it’s such a special spot, it’s small but high impact. from the colors to the skylights in the ceiling and the painting on the wall, it’s a great hangout. if you’re ever in echo park, stop in for a drink. my favorite is the solano!
