I Have Two New Best Friends. So What If They’re Handbags. No Judging.

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

One of the best parts about visiting my hometown of Phoenix last week:  the shopping.  I was driving down Camelback  when I spotted Red on the right side of the road.  Not only is the place packed with incredible vintage modern furniture, art, and accessories – the boutique also holds the most beautiful collection of vintage clothes, jewelry, handbags, and accessories.

It was so fun to look through all the mint condition pieces for a few minutes.  And yes, I did buy a couple things – a super shiny silver 70s box bag with two shoulder straps and a small cream purse with a brown lucite handle.

And they are my two new best friends.

I’m Totally Against Ceiling Fans. Just Sayin’.

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

When my mom asked me to help redecorate her bedroom, she only gave me a couple of restrictions: 

  1. I had to use her current lavender wall color and drapes, and
  2. I had to use her recently inherited side tables and dresser.

And here’s the look!

bedding, headboard, rug, bench, chair, mirror, ceiling fan, pillow, side table, silver tray, lamp, vase

My mom hasn’t bought all this stuff, yet – although I think she totally should.  Hint.  Hint.  This is just a look I created for her – a reference so when she’s out shopping and she sees a perfect white lamp, or a beautiful circle mirror, she can add it to her room and know it’s going to work.

Creating a look book is easy.  Just pick a color palette, furniture, accessories, rugs, and anything and everything else you want for your room and put them together on your computer or in a folder, so when you’re out shopping, you have a guide to follow. 

And, on a side note, I am totally anti-ceiling fans.  Totally.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, gorgeous and unique light fixtures.  But my mom wouldn’t budge on that one.  She’s all, ‘It’s hot in Arizona.  I need the air to be circulated.’  Blah… blah… blah… Just sayin.’
