DESIGNLOVEFEST / WHAT WE OFFER

i get this question a lot…”so what do you DO?” which is an interesting question for sure. (and i never know quite how to answer it!) designlovefest has been constantly changing and evolving. with our new studio all ready to go, we are becoming more of a one-stop-shop. events, creative endeavors, brand collaborations, giveaways, videos, social media, styling, production, workshops, art direction, product reviews, and artist interviews…we’ve been working really hard on outlining the services and packages that we offer over here, and it’s finally ready! i really appreciate the support from sponsors and especially the designlovefest readers. my main goal is to produce interesting, quality content for you all. thank you so so much for following along, this blog means the world to me.

here’s a small look at ways we could work together. if you are a brand interested in collaborating, email studio{at}designlovefest.com for the full breakdown.

MAKE IT / 42

before we start our DIY, have you entered our today?

garland

do you remember this garland that natalie made at our LA blogshop? (see here) we decided to show you the very simple steps to follow so you can make one of your own for an upcoming party or event…or to just make one of the corners in your house look cool.

9

what you’ll need:

• card stock
• scissors
• pencil
• sewing machine

how to make it:

• for the traingle strand: with a pair of scissors, cut the sheet of card stock into 2 in wide strips.
• cut the card stock strips into triangles by holding the scissors at a 45 degree angle, cutting towards the corner of the strip. cut in the opposite direction to complete the triangle.

run each triangle through a sewing machine, slightly overlapping each to continue the stitch.

get creative with the shapes you make. you can use a circle hole punch for the circle strand, and we are also fans of just the rectangle shapes…

lastly, hang! we used adhesive putty, but double sided tape or tacks would work just as well.

and there you have it! a very festive corner of your house. and if you have leftover paper cutouts you can always use them as confetti on the table to tie the theme together…

so what do ya think? are you gonna make one of these pretty garlands?

FLORALS IN YOUR SPACE / 06

before we start on this floral post, a small announcement! we are now hosting giveaways on the as well. head over there & for all the updates! is with baggu, check it out.

With Fall, I like to break up the routine and get ready for the busy end of year. A little can go along way when wanting to spruce up a room. New throw pillows, a great area rug, or fun table top items can really help bring your summer pad into the cooler months.

This week for “Florals in your space” we visited the beautifully curated brick and mortar shop of the design agency . Owner’s Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe’s storefront houses well crafted goods handpicked from around the globe along with vintage furniture from their collection.

With the flowers I wanted to emphasize the juxtaposition of design I found in their space. The shop feels cool California but has old world richness. I used native succulents to highlight that California vibe and layered in coleus leaves for a fun pop of velvety richness. Cafe au Lait and hot pink dahlias softened the arrangement and provided some serious romance. I also added chocolate cosmos and bittersweet vine as a nod to fall. (even though here in LA it is still summer) 

Big thank you to the incredible shop crew Timothy Regan, Lizzie, Brandt, Linnéa Saine, and Steven Lancaster for having us! Check out Nickey Kehoe to shop all the beautiful products online. -Kristen from

flower ingredients:: dahlias, succulents, air plant, coleus, bittersweet, and chocolate cosmos.

EAT DRINK AMERICANO / DOWNTOWN LA

right before we moved out of our loft in the arts district in LA there was a restaurant that arian and i really enjoyed walking to. it was really mellow, had a romantic vibe, we would share olives and cheese, taste different beers, (shown above) get down with some flatbreadsand just relax. it’s actually a very special restaurant to me now because we ate there on our last night in the loft before we moved into our new place in silver lake. i remember sitting there with him and talking about the good times we had in our first place together and how we were excited for the future memories in our new house.

one of the coolest things about eat drink americano is the decor. it has a very rustic vibe. the food is served on wood boards, they have an enormous chalkboard wall with impressive typography, mismatched chairs and couches create unique vignettes.
