KEDS

we just launched a ! i’ve been waiting so long and it’s finally here!

i really wanted to design a line of shoes that felt simple, special, and affordable. something you could wear all summer and they could match with just about anything. you could dress them up or down. i wanted nice materials and details like the perforated leather, rose gold and suede. i also wanted a more muted pink color so it didn’t feel over the top girly but still felt true to the designlovefest brand. we went through many different rounds and i am really happy with the end result!!

here are all 4 styles…i would love to know your choice!

SHOP TAN SLIDES

SHOP BLUSH SLIDES

SHOP BLUSH SNEAKERS 

SHOP BLACK AND WHITE ESPADRILLES 

this was also a really fun photoshoot to put together! i’ve always wanted to visit that awesome pink apartment building with colorful stairs in spain…and since that wasn’t really possible for this, i decided to recreate the scene! the team that helped me pull it off was amazing and i’m so grateful!

NEW MEXICO TRAVEL GUIDE

New Mexico travel guide | designlovefest

a few weeks ago i was able to go to new mexico for a quick 5 day work trip with the tourism company . it was my first time visiting new mexico and they planned a bunch of activities starting in albuquerque, then in santa fe, and ending in taos. i DEFINITELY want to go back and explore more with justin, i think we would really enjoy seeing more there together. it’s really the perfect place to go and road trip around.

we flew into albuquerque and headed to our hotel, . the property has 50 rooms spread out on a working lavender farm, which was so beautiful and relaxing. we got to take a few little workshops in the greenhouse with some of the farmers, wandered in their amazing gift shop and cafe, and dined at the delicious (their restaurant on the property). we didn’t get much time to explore around albuquerque, but i really recommend staying on this farm and enjoying everything the property has to offer.

the next day we drove about an hour to santa fe. our first stop was the wild and crazy art installation ! it’s hard to even explain this museum in words. it kinda feels like pee wee’s playhouse in there. it’s psychedelic, experimental, fascinating, exciting, weird…there are tons of hidden doors and secret passageways. the group had mixed feelings about it, but i think it’s worth checking out. i personally wasn’t as inspired by the art, but i did love the experience! you get to go into a washing machine and end up in another room…so you kinda just have to do it.

HOTEL TONIGHT

hotel tonight | designlovefest

i recently stayed at in san franscisco, designed by kelly wearstler. i was extremely impressed and inspired by her design choices. i booked the hotel through one of my favorite apps, . i really like using their app and was thrilled when they asked if i wanted to work together as i use them all the time (did you know you can now book up to 100 days in advance!) i love staying at unique, design focused hotels when i travel to get inspiration for either a project i’m working on for the blog or something at home. i’ve been working on finishing up the interior at my house and so i’m always checking things out when i go someplace new. the app is also great for last minute trips, when justin and i were in europe we randomly decided we wanted to go to Amsterdam and i booked (which is a really cool spot!) on and we flew there the next day, such a fun spontaneous trip!

i love how there were so many mixed patterns and textures everywhere. i actually felt excited by all of the unexpected details throughout the space. the perfect velvet couches, retro vintage rugs, art deco style furniture, amazing art curation, unique lighting…it was really inspiring! and don’t forget to check out the rooftop bar for even more design ideas. this space has definitely encouraged me to take more risks with colors and patterns in my own home, and proven again that kelly wearstler is SO talented.

i took some notes in my head on some design elements that inspired me during my stay…

inspired by all the fun design elements at the proper, i came back and added a velvet chair with an animal print throw here in my living room. i love how cozy and laid back it makes the space feel now and has an unexpected touch. i’ve been with a designer,  on finishing the living room and she’s doing a great job making the room feel feminine and masculine, unique, and most of all it has personality! (more on those room resources soon!) i’ve been slowly designing each room with more thought over the past few years. next up is my bedroom…

my bedroom has been a place where i’ve played it very safe. mostly out of laziness, time, and the fact that it’s totally fine the way it is. bright, airy, easy. but i would love to add more visual interest to the bedroom and have the decor be a little more intentional and sophisticated. i think it would be really cool to add a patterned couch or chair to the window and create a separate space there. i would love to add some fun pillows or a quilt on the bed that made a statement. maybe instead of a chair or couch it would be cool to have a desk area by the window like this?

although i love these too…

i really admire how kelly seamlessly integrates many different periods of furniture into her rooms. it’s always the perfect mixture. i will be keeping that in mind as i work on my bedroom.

i always love when traveling brings new inspiration, and this definitely did that for me this time. it’s fun to do a solo trip from time to time too, i booked this with really no agenda and no travel companion and it ended up being a really inspiring time at a beautiful property. highly recommend and !
