Modern Rustic Inspiration

I am lucky enough to have clients that hire me multiple times for multiple homes- recently one of my most fun, bold and cool clients decided to build a modern second home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and asked me to help with the decor!  This is SO much fun for me because it’s so outside the realm of what I work on most days (suburban full time homes or urban condos).  There is SO much inspiration to pull from for a place like this, nestled amongst some of the most spectacular scenery in the country!  Here are some images and items I’ve pulled to help get us started in dreaming up the look of this modern mountain retreat- and proof that “rustic” doesn’t have to mean “country”-

Fashion Friday: GiGi New York Gates Satchel GIVEAWAY!

You guys know all about the bag I designed with Gigi New York, but recently I received it in tan and white and I’ve been carrying it every single day- not just because it’s my own design but because it’s the perfect size for my lifestyle. And the colors are spot on for summer outfits- case in point, it is the only bag I brought on my trip to The Greenbrier this summer.

Check it out!

My New Pattern from Jill Rosenwald

When Jill and I chatted about adding another pattern to my collection with her we couldn’t help but bring up the obvious: leopard, my favorite “color”.  Now, it took some time to get Jill on the leopard train as she was NOT a fan- but now I think she sees the aesthetic value in a little animal print!  Here are the pieces we did in leopard, and scroll down to see a very special addition to our line!

Everything is hand made in Jill’s studio in Boston. The accent colors are up to you- so if you prefer green to orange you totally can do that! Also, I love the mix of this pattern with my Bateau pattern too!

Inspired By Mint & Sand

I saw these incredible photographs by Álvaro Sánchez-Montañés and was not only inspired by the magical subject matter but also the colors found in these images. That pale minty green mixed with white and sand is such a soothing palette.

Here’s a roundup of some items that reminds me of this palette- from sandy rugs to crisp mint bordered sheets….

Gilt-y Finds From Kids Sources!

I was flipping through some magazine this week when I spotted this perfect gold canopy bed… and lo and behold it was from Pottery Barn Teen! I got to poking around and found a bunch of great gilt pieces I never thought in a MILLION years I could find here.

The aforementioned canopy bed- it doesn’t come in king, but if you need a queen (or two twins) this is fantastic.

A killer gold leg trestle desk. So awesome.

There is nothing “teen” about this bookcase! A [air flanking a fireplace or window would be STUNNING!
