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?

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 !

NIKE

joanie and i both love sneakers. we’re always wearing them for shoots and especially when traveling. when asked us if we wanted to partner with them to style a few summer looks with their , we were definitely on board, they come in so many fun colors and i’ve been seeing people wearing them around town and always think they’re so cute. i love as a brand, and they have really bridged the gap between stylish and comfortable (my favorite lightweight workout shoe is ). with festival season right around the corner, here are a two looks that are perfect for summer!

my style is hard to pin down but it really is inspired by a california lifestyle; laid back with splashes of color and a mix of structured and unstructured. i’ve been loving kimonos lately because they can be worn so many ways, over a swimsuit, around the house, with jeans or over a slim dress. for this look, i paired the with a simple white t-shirt from reformation, cropped jeans from Mother, and a colorful kimono from free people. it’s an outfit that can be worn all day with ease.

joanie: i generally gravitate towards lighter colors, so i picked the of the Air Max 270. sneakers can be hard to pair with dresses but these actually work really well because they have so much lift in the heel that they give the illusion of a longer leg. i live in dresses in the summer, they’re an instant outfit and can be dressed up or down. i love throwing on a denim jacket or an oversized sweater to keep it functional for cooler evenings. also, for shorter dresses, i almost always wear bike shorts underneath, love .

and you have got to check out the swan boats at the echo park lake. such a relaxing activity when the sun’s out! and are more fun summer/festival pieces from Nike!

A LIST TO STAY INSPIRED TO COOK

cooking at home resources | designlovefest

i get a lot of questions about my recent obsession with cooking. favorite books or recipes. what videos i like to watch. where i get my kitchen tools. how i keep finding new recipes and staying inspired. so i sat down and really thought about all of this and made a giant list! my new love of cooking has been absolutely incredible and i am so happy to share my journey here! lots of love, bri

SHOWS + VIDEOS

i find cooking shows to be so relaxing. i find myself watching them for hours on a sunday. we have an apple tv which has actually been really nice for this new hobby. i have different apps (like kitchen stories) to watch videos and the recommended food videos on can take you down a fun path. a lot of the times if i am going to attempt to make something (let’s say mac and cheese) i will just sit and watch 4 or 5 videos from channels i like and get inspired or learn a new trick or two.

 it’s such an inspiring/addicting show! it was definitely one of the things that got me fully into cooking again.

– justin showed me this one last year (you can watch on their website but i prefer the app on apple tv) the videos are gorgeous, nice design, elevated plating, relaxing…i love them! i don’t really like the fast paced videos when i really want to learn how to cook. most of theirs are slow paced but not boring, and no annoying voices, just music! here is a few from their site to start on: , ,

– it’s been around a while, but still good to rewatch and get inspired by passionate people.

– i loved season 14 (all the episodes are on hulu)

– justin and i split the yearly pass for the masterclass so we can lay on the couch and nerd out together. it kinda feels like you are back in school and i love that. i loved watching and class (can’t wait for alice waters this spring)

– i liked the show, but i especially felt inspired by the home cooking episode from this season. david chang is pretty awesome.

– again, i like watching these on the apple tv. but there is tons you can just watch too. is a fun watch.

– one of my favorite things to do

– it’s actually been really inspiring for me to show glimpses of my cooking on . i just like giving people ideas and showing that home cooking doesn’t have to be overwhelming…it can be completely therapeutic and amazing. you can see a lot of my cooking stories! (breakfast ideas is my favorite category)

REAL LIFE

there are so many traditions and activities to do on a weekly basis that will keep you in the kitchen or cooking with people in your life! all of these really changed my view on cooking at home…

sunday dinner/cooking for someone you love – we started a sunday dinner tradition that we try really hard to stick to when we are in town. a few couples get together, sometimes rotate houses, and choose a dinner theme. greek night! pasta! roast and potatoes! everyone makes a dish or brings the wine. it’s been such a bonding experience. i look forward to planning the menu every week. practice your entertaining skills by mastering a cheese board, lighting taper candles, making dinner party playlists, getting fresh flowers for the table…anytime you can cook for people you love, it brings joy.

farmer’s market – we love the on a sunday morning. don’t be afraid to ask questions and learn more from the vendors. stay curious! try new produce you haven’t cooked with before. just wander around and dream up new things to make.

SEE THE WHOLE LIST AFTER THE JUMP…

STYLED / SPRING FEVER

i’m coming up on the end of my three month no shopping commitment (more on the experience later) and i’m definitely starting to feeling the shopping itch. it really wasn’t that hard but that’s mostly because i avoided online browsing (email blasts about new arrivals and sales are my downfall!) and also didn’t go to any malls. i had to shop one day for a shoot and it was way harder to not buy anything when it was right in front of me. it’s also the fact that spring collections have launched and there are so many pretty colors popping up and that’s hard to resist (case in point is that above which i didn’t even want to tell you about because what if it sells out before my three months are up?!). so instead of buying anything i just created a list of nine items i’d buy if i was shopping! – joanie

 $158 – i saw these yesterday in person and was immediately drawn to the mustard yellow color and the classic mule shape with a feminine touch. i find jeffery campbell shoes to be very comfortable as well.

 $245  – i think we all have a soft spot for anything Clare V and the fun and whimsical details she adds to her bags. I love the beading detail on this pretty black and white piece.

  $83 – if you don’t own a duster, it’s about time you do. they are the perfect thing to travel in, they’re so cozy and it’s basically like wearing a bathrobe in public, a very chic bathrobe. , this one is the perfect grey/purple color.

$50 – i know i’ve been on a serious H&M kick but they really are doing such a good job. i love this blouse so much and think it’s the perfect spring piece.

 $388 – my sister has a version of these shoes and i just saw her wearing them last weekend and was reminded what a great shape they are. so flattering and would pair well with basically anything.

 $40 – a wrap dress is the perfect thing to bring you into spring, paired with a denim jacket and sneakers or dressed up for an evening out with a strappy sandal.

 $50 – buy these shoes right now, maybe in both colors because they will be a shoe that you will wear all the time, trust me.

  – there is nothing new about gingham for spring but i’m still so drawn to it, especially in black and white which feels particularly chic. and i really liked J.Crew swimwear.

 $100 – somehow getting a new pair of running shoes makes me more excited to work out and i love the nude with purple on these ones.
