WEEKEND AT HOME / 122

hammocks have a way of manifesting that peaceful easy feeling. they conjure up the feeling of summer: warm sun, swaying in the breeze, afternoon naps. i’m all about transforming your home to be a place of relaxation, and hammocks are my favorite way to make your patio feel like a secluded getaway. i love the idea of an interior hammock too! they’re are SO easy to put in your yard, why not make your yard a private paradise this weekend with a hammock?

MINI LIVING

MINI LIVING | designlovefest

i’m working on a six month long project with  that i’m feeling really excited about! it’s a company created by MINI (the car brand!) that is focusing on sustainability in our homes (they’re calling them urban cabins). what would it look like if we used design to focus on creating living spaces that have a smaller footprint but that don’t take away from your quality of life? it’s focused on urban life and sharing space within a community, and maximizing what we get out of every square inch of our homes. the cabin in LA is only about 160 square feet so every design decision really counts. it was really amazing to see how they used the space, i actually felt like it would be possible to live well in something that small. part of the project was creating a video that will introduce the concept of , which was filmed on location in LA and then we’ll be traveling to beijing and tokyo later this year to see the cabins being built there. i also hosted a dinner on the roof outside the cabin with a few friends and spent the night there as well!

i toured the home which was set on the rooftop in the arts district of LA, in a very stylish new area called . you should definitely check out all the hip shops and restaurants happening there!

now let me show you inside! i love how the plants come through on the ceiling and make it feel like a greenhouse. in each location a local architect is asked to design part of the space and have it represent the city. in LA, designed this center portion that felt almost like an optical illusion. colorful graphics, open air, metal and plants. it’s definitely appropriate for LA, since so much of our lives here have that indoor/outdoor way of living. (thanks, weather)

my favorite part…well that’s hard to choose. i absolutely loved the wooden panels that swung open and made the house feel open and airy, and i especially liked the tiny cutout shapes in the walls that created awesome light effects throughout the day. there were also a ton of fun surprises like the terrazzo tile in the kitchen, the iridescent mirrors, the moveable shapes that functioned as hooks, and the garden on the roof. it felt like the future in there!

it was a really special night. i kept having this very grateful feeling all day. to be working with such a talented and kind crew and client, to be doing something i really believe in, and to be having fun while doing it! and i definitely started thinking about tidying up my life, living with less, and what actually creates happiness in a home…it was very thought provoking.

after everyone left, denise and i watched netflix in bed with a glass of wine and pushed the bed outside. it was a fun little adventure with my friend!

$1000 ARTICLE FURNITURE GIVEAWAY!

so excited about this BIG furniture giveaway and to show you inside our studio space! i’ve been wanting to finish our office for awhile and haven’t gotten around to it but we finally pulled the trigger and got it done with the help of our friends at Article! and to celebrate, one lucky winner will receive a ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR shopping spree to spend on anything on ! you can get a few chairs, a table, or even a sofa. click through below to enter and to get a coupon code! we’ve been using their furniture for a few years now and they have tons of cool pieces.

now for a little update on our studio cottage! the goal was really to create a cohesive space that flowed together and felt cozy, relaxed and finished. we worked to complete not only the big pieces but the details as well, everything from the plants to candles and to have the furniture and colors all make sense together. our office isn’t traditional by any means (which we love!) so we went with pieces that have more of a relaxed feeling that fits our work place. you can see some of our article furniture in action below! we started the furniture picks with those  because they’re so good and they really set the overall vibe of the studio, and we added , the , and the …

 

we also created a mood board! i have been collecting pieces of inspiration from all of the world during my travels but most of it just lives in my drawers at home so it’s really fun to finally have a place to display some of it! to create the board we covered a foam core board with white linen (stapled it to the back with a staple gun and then just nailed the board to the wall). the total cost of the project is under $50, foam core, linen (which you can buy by the yard at your local fabric store), staples, nails and pins for hanging. here we can collect inspiration, memories, and document past projects!

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…

hotel tonight | designlovefest

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 .
