Happy Halloween

I'm off to celebrate the weekend with my sweet husband and kids...parties, candy and lots of fun! We are dressing up as Toy Story characters; what areyou going to be?

Enjoy the haunted weekend!

Celerie Kemble

Celerie Kemble is an innovative and celebrated designer of our time. Her rooms are anchored in traditionalism, playing with color and pattern in a modern way always with a touch of whimsy. Lonny magazine did a great piece on Celerie Kemble, showcasing her NYC apartment. They also highlighted a few quotes of advice from Celerie's mom, Mimi, two of which I loved:)

"There is really no such thing as a dead end.Everything can be reapproached."

"Even with every effort made, my hair is still going to look messy. Work harder on being funny and kind."

So here's to Celerie!

Halloween Hauntings

With Halloween just around the corner, I'm sure many of you are planning Halloween or Harvest parties. I'm a little behind this older son still hasn't decided on a costume yet (he's deciding between a monster, a superhero and a pirate), we haven't been to a pumpkin patch yet (where we usually hit up a few) and I haven't even planned my annual pumpkin carving party yet. In any case, here are a few decorations to help your house feel festive! I've also added a few inspiring rooms to get your creative juices flowing. Enjoy!

these would really pop with some food coloring!

Ohmega Salvage

I have been dying to get over to Ohmega Salvage since we moved to Berkeley. It is an architectural salvage yard with another section of trinkets. There were rows of old doors, tubs, mantles, lighting, etc... Definitely a place I'll visit every once in a while in case something extraordinary happens by.

I would love to add a glass top and turn it into a fun side table!
